Frederick's is our favorite
Frederick's is our favorite San Antonio restaurant. The food and service are consistently top notch. It's our first choice for special occassions and for entertaining out of town guests.

Frederick's Bistro is a great
Frederick's Bistro is a great place to eat; I usually go on Sunday night and it is not normally busy. This time I met a friend on Saturday night and was glad I made reservations; it was packed. I ordered the Frederick's salad; great vinagerette dressing and veggies (edamame, fresh corn and artichokes) along with the salad. I also had one of three fish specials, crusted halibut, with a dollop of guacamole on top. It was to die for; I would order it next time I visit. This is a great local restaurant, classy and good food.

Food at Fredrick's is always
Food at Fredrick's is always first rate. This night the escargot were amazing and the fish special was great. Always attentive service,even from less experienced staff (as ours was) overcoming lack of knowledge with sincerity and attention. In addition,it's priced at a level that belies the quality. Recommend without hesitation.

Good was just amazing, best
Good was just amazing, best lamb chops I ever had and the veal bread was something completely unexpected. The place is really romantic and intimate, ideal for a couple or two celebrating a special occasion or just having some good time, wine list and service was also very good.

Frederick's Bistro always delivers delicious food presented beautifully in a professional atmosphere - truly a gourmet delight. I bring groups of 12 or more here and Frederick's performs admirably every time and is always a delight. We will return again and again. Also, their prices are quite reasonable for the quality offered.

I've never had a bad meal or poor service at Frederick's. It is located between Castle Hills and Shavano Park. A great neighborhood restaurant with great service, food and wine list at reasonable prices.

Top-notch food close to home!
Love this place- some of the best food in the city, reasonably priced and very near where we live. So nice to not have to hassle with driving downtown and parking.

elegant business or private dining
Last week we celebrated a birthday lunch at F Bistro - several of us had never been at this location -- we all loved it. We were welcomed with a smile; service was cordial & attentive w/o being intrusive. Food & wine & dessert were delicious! Great ambiance for personal or business meals...quiet enough to permit a serious discussion but pleasant background music enhances the atmosphere.

Fredricks is always good, reliable nice meal. Worth going to for any occasion.

FOOD WOULD HAVE BEEN 5 STAR:
EXCEPT FOR THE TOUGH CHEWY THIN OVERCOOKED STEAK SANDWICH.
THE CURRY SOUP (MORE LIKE A CHOWDER), CRAB CAKE APPETIZER AND THE GROUPER ABSOLUTELY BLEW US AWAY IT WAS SO GOOD.
OUR WAITRESS (FROM PANAMA) WAS DELIGHTFUL, HELPFUL AND EFFICIENT. (LUNCH 7/9 12:30P)

Another great meal ar Frederick's!
My husband and I often choose Frederick's Bistro for consistently prepared delicious food. Our last experience proved that time hasn't made the kitchen complacent. We had sea bass and halibut both prepared to perfection. The only disappointment on this occasion was the service. Our service was very slow this evening; something not in keeping with our past experiences. We ordered white wine which was kept in a chiller away from our table and glasses were empty when our food arrived. We asked after our meal if there was any wine left and were told "no" only to have the waiter find our bottle had a glass left after our bill was paid. Ack! These missteps can really impact a dining experience! Still, the food was superb and we will be back.

Quiet, romantic, excellent food. The red snapper was exceptional. Will return as soon as possible.

Frederick's is not only consistent but good. We stopped on for lunch toward their closing time 2:15. They were gracious and we had a delicious lunch of salmon with artichoke hearts. We love Frederick's and recommend it highly.

I am never disappointed!
The "Bistro" serves delicious food, just like Fredericks, but it is easier to make a reservation at this establishment and less formal. Also they do not appear to cater to special clients, at least not on Sunday night, unlike the original Fredericks.
I highly recommend this place, especially if you appreciate nicely prepared dishes. I have never gotten anything I did not like.

Frederick's Bistro is a superb dining spot. The menu is creative, fresh and seasonal. Everything from
the service to the presentation is excellent. Frederick's Bistro is "fine dining" in San Antonio.

Great owner involvement
Frederick is always on had to make sure guests are taken care of. The food is multi-cultural without being contrived. Nice decor. Only negatives are the noise level and the pace of service was a bit rushed.

Great ... Again
Been here quite a few times. Service always great, food always good. Had the Osso Bucco for the second time and it was fabulous. Always enuff to take some home and I eat quite a bit. Others had chicken, trout and steak, all very good. A neighborhood gem for sure!

Exruisite Dining @ Fredericks
My date and I found the atmosphere to be extremely nice and the menu displayed so many delicious sounding entrees that it was hard to make a choice. The appetizer of escargot was simply superb!

one of our favorites on the list of restaurants we visit every Saturday night after mass.

Special Occasion Treat
The service was excellent as we were seated right away and immediately asked for our drink order. The wait staff was very timely in knowing when to be at our table but not there every second. Dinner came at the exact moment we were finished with our cocktail. The owner dropped by to see if everything was alright which I thought was a nice touch. The meal was excellent.

Resonably Quiet & Romantic
Food was excellent, and service was very good as well. Made an accommodation for us which was appreciated. We enjoyed the variety of food selections and flavors offered. I would recommend this to my friends . . .

Very appreciative of the restaurant owner's involvement with the function of the restaurant on a daily basis. He greets tClientele at the door and gives extra attention to each one at some point of their visit.

Frederick Costa in my opinion has one of the best restaurants in San Antonio. The menu has something for everyone and the daily specials are really special. Frederick is the expert in preparing fish. I've eaten there many times and almost always order the fish. The presentation is a work of art and the flavors and sauces are the best. You will not have a bad meal here. Starting with some of the most delicious dinner rolls found anywhere, Frederick has proven that he can be creative and consistent with everything he prepares. The staff is also very attentive and the bar scene is lively. I highly recommend eating here. The prices are also reasonable for the portion size and quality of the food.

Incredible service from Riley who manned the bar AND waited the dining tables in the bar area. We sat here to enjoy some apps from the Happy Hour menu and remained to order and eat our dinner.She was incredibly efficient and gave wonderful menu advice.The unique take on escargot is phenomenal! Oysters and eggplant also super tasty starters.My son devoured his pizza and asked for a second! Seafood pasta and mahi/scallop special were divine. Pork osso buco also very good, but a bit of work to get meat (cutting away fat and tissue a challenge).Rich, creamy, dreamy chocolate pecan cake and moist, chocolate covered Rum Euphoria (with a kick!) made for a sweet,declicious ending to the perfect birthday meal. Won't wait until next bday to return!

Excellent food, well designed menu. Plates were cooked to perfection. Excellent! well and complemented wine list. Definitely a Neighborhood Gem.

It's One of San Antonio's Best
Frederick's has it all. Very consistent food quality and staff. Great nightly specials. Priced right for the quality.

Very nice birthday dinner
Two couples to celebrate my wife's birthday. Food was delicious. Our friends saw and conversed with other diners that they knew from years past. Very nice time.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is excellent! It doesn't matter if you compare it to restaurants in San Antonio or France.(We have just returned from France and have been there three times). My husband and I were celebrating a birthday.
I have been there many times with girlfriends for the Happy Hour and ordering lighter...the food and service was excellent then, also.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great ... Again
Have been here MANY times (15 to 20). The food is always wonderful, service impeccable and all in a friendly quiet atmosphere.
I get something different most times I go and am always impressed. The wine list is also suitable for whatever it is you decide on. Had the filet this time, cooked perfectly and a nice Pinot Noir from Marlborough New Zealand.

Excellent evening because
Excellent evening because of all the attention given and details. Coming in reservation was ready, table set simple and efficient. Waitress knows the menu and the wine, very attentive without pushing. Noise is on the high side, and probably could use an ignore lighting. But most of all the food is exquisite, well presented, each bite a delight. Would go back as often as I could and do recommend it.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was the best I have had in years. TOP NOTCH!!!
