Diner Reviews
  • "The charcuterie and small plates are varied and well made. The main courses are well presented and cooked. Always a great place for a nice time."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "For the money we spent, I expected a much higher level of, well, everything. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, we were seated in a corner. The food was mediocre, and they were out of two of the first three wines we ordered. The server seamed to hover. I will not be back."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Restaurant was beautiful. Food was hit or miss - bread was a little dry, but tasty. The salad was overpriced and lacked flavor though the presentation was nice. My fiance and I both ordered the ribeye steak, which was good but reminded us of home grilled steak marinated in Allegro. My steak was cooked perfectly but his was grossly undercooked though we both requested medium. I would give the restaurant another try, but will likely order something different."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food was good and varied, but only had one salad item. I would suggest to the restaurant to include a variety of salads to the brunch buffet."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Expected a more Italian menu - but definitely a Mediterrean driven menu. No true pasta dishes. Ribeye and tenderloin were excellent and proportions generous. Only 4 red wines offered but nice choices. Tried the baklava for dessert with ice cream - wow. Trevor took great care of us and was very knowledge about the menu."

  • "Nice atmosphere, great for an anniversary or special occasion. Food was good,...some pairings of sides seemed odd. Overall taste was good,...dessert was great."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Went out for a nice dinner, dressed up nicely. Food was good, service was good but other diners dressed poorly, shorts and tees, so that detracted from ambiance. Felt cramped into their small dining area...don't know why they didn't use bigger area near sushi bar. Would not recommend for a romantic dinner or special occasion."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Very unique menu selection with very intersting twists! The ambiance was great . . . perfect for a romantic dinner or a business meeting where conversation is key. Service was warm and very professional. Server knew the menu and was great at making selections. You will not be disappointed!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We heard great things about this (relatively) new restaurant and had high expectations. The food was very good and price appropriate. The menu is interesting (all sytles of Mediterranean) and may be difficult to navigate for those not familiar with the ethnic foods of that region. They have a separate "southern Italian" menu that is a good fall-back. I rated the service relatively lower as my waitress twice messed up my wine order. She took too long to bring it and then when she did, brought the wrong wine. But to her credit, she eventually brought the correct wine and comped both plus a dessert. Interestingly, the fire alarm went off while we were dining and all patrons had to go outside. However, the staff handled the situation well."

  • "The server was nice. The food was good. The steak was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The pasta was fair but the scallops were delicious! It was very quiet and a nice place for a romantic evening. We will go back...the hotel was lovely!!!"

  • "Food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. Will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "If it had not been the main part of my order, I would overlook.....but the ribeye steak was not top quality...much gristle and sinew. Thank you for asking for my input."

  • "Elegant dining experience. Food was good and generous portions. Service was very good."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The hotel and decor are beautiful, service excellent, our appetizer was outstanding, (fried Tuscan calamari and shrimp) while the entrees were not at the same level of excellence. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Disappointed with food entrees and selection. I had the swordfish which was just ok and not very good for $19.00, the risotto with squid ink was not tasty to me so just left it. Portions were small. The other plate was beef tenderloin which was served under cooked and had to be sent back. Ordered it medium well and was served medium, more on the red side. Dessert was the best part of meal. Ate dinner at 6pm and only had one other couple at table till we left at 7:30pm, not very busy at all. $65 later and it was all over. Will not return again. "

  • "I recently had my birthday celebration at Sustenio's and had one of the best meals1 From the moment we walked in the door the wait staff was friendly and professional. They were very informative and thorough when explaining our dining choices. Since this was a birthday celebration the chef prepared a special dessert made especially for me! We will be returning in the near future to experience further dining events. They have been awarded the AAA Four Diamond rating over the past three years that they have been open! Excellent food and excellent service!"

  • "This is an excellent spot for a lunch! There were some excellent choices on the lunch menu. The half sandwich and half soup was the perfect combination. "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Both the hostess and our server were pleasant and accommodating. The food was outstanding. Would highly recommend the Branzino! Nice selection of wine and beverages. We will definitely be back soon."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "First time, party of four. Sat across from the open grill area, conversation difficult. Stuffed squash blossoms no longer available, Jamon Iberico very dry. White bean soup, good. Buffalo burrata not noteworthy. Four entrees: Lamb & Swordfish okay, black rice heavy, Salmon and Scallop cold, returned. Employee apologized - complimentary Wagyua Bresaola and Artisinal Pepperoni. Wagyau overly dry. Scallop plate puree indistinguishable, gnocchi hard and dry, not eaten. Replaced Salmon was raw, no replacement entree was considered. Cappuccino good, fig butter tart, dry with extremely hard figs, very little Anglaise or candied herbs present. Final bill was adjusted to reflect no charge for the Salmon dish. "

  • "In a practice of brevity, Sustenio was wonderful. The dark, quiet atmosphere pairs perfectly with any romantic occasion. The wine list is very, very dense, with a vast selection of foreign and domestic superstars (though most of the Red Zins were new faces for me). The Bar's Manhattan is honestly one of the best I've had (if not the best). It isn't for the palate that enjoys just straight bourbon (but if that's you, just get a good bourbon neat or straight up), as it includes more than just the bitters and vermouth--and I'm a sucker for luxardo maraschino cherries. Plain and simple, the menu is obviously the result of thorough contemplation of the chef's strengths and the overall sustainable foods and farmers goal. EAT. THE. SCALLOPS!"

  • "Food very good and generous portions. Service from Steve was excellent. Nice quiet and romantic setting...makes conversation easy to hear. Also great wine selection."

  • "Everything was very good except the cleanliness. Our talk was on carpet and the area around our table needed vacuuming. I looked the table next door and it was worst. "

  • "Would like to mention how well Martin, our lunch waiter, treated us when we dined there recently! Great service, food and ambience!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We went to Sustenio for an early Mother's day dinner. We loved the Mediterranean influence in the food. We got the olives, three dips, and cured meats as appetizers. Loved them all. My wife got the ribeye and I got the whole roasted Branzino (sea bass). The Branzino was divine. One of my favorite dishes ever. The dessert menu was good but didn't have the wow factor as the rest of the menu. Our server was a newbie. He didn't know as much about the menu as a more seasoned server would have been. We can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu. It will be hard not to order the Branzino again though. Thoroughly enjoyed the food. "

  • "I have been to this restaurant many times and this was the first time I was totally disappointed. My prime rib-eye steak was awful. I had to give it back and I rarely do that in any restaurant. My lesson learned was stick with steak from a steak restaurant!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Superb food, fantastic service, nice ambience, and a great all around experience."

  • "Excellent Food and Saber provided wonderful service"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food was very good and interesting. The service was acceptable but a little slow. In particular, the young wait staff failed to bring the wine selected for each course until well after each course had been served. So all 4 of us ended up waiting with food on our table for the wine to arrive. We had to flag down another waiter to actually get the entrée course matched wine to be brought to us. If we had not done so, we probably would have been 1/2 or 3/4 finished with the course before the wine arrived."

  • "A truly phenomenal dining experience. The Mediterranean menu is full of attractive choices. Best salmon and pork selections each of us had ever tried. A memorable evening well worth the taxi fare from downtown San Antonio. Return visit is a must."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Our experience at Sustenio for dinner was wonderful. The wait staff was detailed and knowledgeable. The food was delicious from starter to dessert. We enjoyed it so much we made reservations for their brunch the next day. Unless they have made some serious changes I would NOT go for brunch ever again. In their defense, it was only the second time they provided brunch and have a long way to go to meet the expectations of resort goers. Feedback was provided to the manager and hopefully changes have been made to make brunch as much of a pleasant experience as dinner was."

  • "Sustenio changed a great menu for an even better one. Food was excellent! Brandino was cooked to perfection. The osso bucco was very tender and full of flavor. I will be back, there are other new options that I need to try."

  • "I went to this restaurant because a friend told me how great it was so I checked out the menu and was really excited to go. Turns out they changed the entire menu and the new menu had nothing from the old menu. The cheese in the zucchini blossom appetizer was so salty we couldn't eat it. The scallops came on a bed of sweet potato puree with a dollop of applesauce puree. Felt like I was eating baby food. The gnocchi was overcooked and dry. Didn't see any dessert I would want - I LOVE desert and I'm not a picky eater. The friend I was with felt the same. The waiter did make mention that they were losing some regulars due to the new menu. At most it was underwhelming. On the flip side, the wait staff was great as was the ambiance."

  • "My husband and I wanted to try brunch hear after reading good things online and in SA Magazine. We brought our one year old and made a whole morning of it - brunch and the Ripe Farmer's Market. It all turned out to make a fantastic Sunday morning experience! We all shared the fruit platter, which was huge and super yummy. My husband and daughter shared the buckwheat pancakes. My husband said they might be the best pancakes he has ever had. They were huge! I indulged in the chicken fried steak tips with eggs and biscuits and gravy. Wow, it was a large, delicious plate. They also had great coffee and orange juice. The service was great. The staff was kind and accommodating. We will definitely be going again."

  • "The restaurant is a very luxurious place in a great hotel. As a result, it is priced accordingly. The service was very good, plan on 2 hours for dinner. I appreciate not being rushed, however at times, it seemed like it dragged on. I had no interest in 5 of the 8 entries, my fault for not pre checking. That left only 3. One soup, duck, which I wasnt interested in, two salads to choose from. Ceviche was interesting. We had "still" water rather than sparkling but were still charged $21 for 3 water refills each. Over all, an experience we will always remember but I didnt feel a good value for the over $200 bill for dinner."
