We had a group of 6 plus a well-behaved baby. The server was so wonderful even when one of my group went back a drink for kind of a silly reason. The food was outstanding and the view was spectacular at sunset. I am a local but it didn’t seem touristy at all. Despite being on the 3rd floor of the building is was fully stroller and wheelchair accessible. It was very expensive for San Antonio, but 100% worth it.
It was my first time to visit 1718 and we were celebrating my birthday. Everything was wonderful from the moment we walked in. Brian was the bartender who made sure we had a drink while we waited for our table and Rudy was our server who couldn't have been more perfect.
The 16 oz ribeye was truly one of the best I've had and I loved the lobstercargot as well.
I highly recommend and will definitely return for another wonderful evening.
The view of the sunset reflected on the Alamo was breathtaking, adding to a pleasant experience of good food and wine!
Birthday dinner for my wife in the middle of the week. Steaks and sides were excellent and service was friendly, prompt and stealthy. People-watching the Alamo visitors was fun as well.
Superb steak and sides. The flaming cheesecake was so delicious. We had great service with Tyler.
Had an absolutely amazing time here. Great service, awesome view, and of course the food was the best part.
This is the perfect steak restaurant to eat at in San Antonio. It sits directly across from the Alamo. The staff was excellent and the food was perfect. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants the full San Antonio experience.
The food was wonderful the service was AMAZING, plus a great view.
Great food and scenery (our table overlooked the Alamo!). Service was a little slow, but not horrible.
This is not a chain restaurant so do not expect those prices. But with that being said, the food is over the top good! And the wait staff in the entire place was helpful and cheerful. Good luck finding that in a chain place.
The service was superb and the food phenomenal. We will definitely be back.
Already have recommended 1718 to several friends, our server Michael T was beyond awesome! Got a table right in the window across from the Alamo, the drinks kept coming as quick as we could drink them, and the food was 5 star!! Will be going back as soon as I can come back to San Antonio. Fantastic place!
My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary by trying a new restaurant, overall we were please with 1718. We arrived early enough, 7pm to beet the crowds. We were seated with an unobstructed view of the Alamo and the surrounding area which was a highlight. Wait staff took good care of us and were not overbearing or intrusive. Food portions were not oversized, which we like, yet enough to fill us up. Although a steakhouse we ventured to the winged entrees going with the stuffed quail and the glazed chicken, both cooked to our liking. I would recommend to friends and family.
Excellent service, atmosphere and food. We will be back.
This restaurant was just undergoing a change of chef. We were the only customers in the place. The food was uninspiring and the new chef was having to produce the same menu from the previous chef. However, he/she took the opportunity to send out, free of charge, a new soup he/she was trying out so that we could critique it. It was night and day from what we had just eaten. The soup was delicious, light and subtle. The new chef clearly has a good hand and I believe should be given a chance as he/she slowly brings his/her skills to the menu. I hope the owners gives their new chef that chance.
The food and service were all excellent and with a perfect view of the Alamo. The flaming cheesecake was masterfully prepared.
View of the Alamo was great. Service was great. Food was not worth the money. Steaks were flavorless, lobster Mac n Cheese tasted like box shells with lobster stirred in (definitely not worth $30).
Here for a business trip and wanted to celebrate my co-workers birthday. The ambiance was great. We were seated by the window facing the view of “the Alamo”. We ordered steaks and the lobster bisque. It was all delicious. Highly recommend this place.
Fantastic food! Seriously the BEST steak I have ever had. Very pricey meal, but worth it. Tyler did a great job
Food quality was average and quite pricy for the quality. Service and view of the Alamo was impressive.
A hidden gem. The restaurant is upstairs and if you were not looking for it you could miss it. You should not miss it. It was excellent.
Caprese Bombs were great
Excellent staff. Great location.
The bartender was very, very rude and talked back the whole time ... almost walked out!
Overall great experience ... food phenomenal, well prepared ... BUT, ran out of bread pudding (2 of us were very disappointed).
Noise level really took away from the ambiance — there was a table closeby with about six women that was extremely loud (drinking) ... my owner was so frustrated we ended up leaving abruptly.
I was so looking forward to eating in a new spot (new for my husband and me) in Downtown SA BUT was sadly disappointed at 1718 Steakhouse. The Lobster Bisque tasted like a spaghetti sauce and lobster meat was waterlogged-like it was in water too long. Sent it back. The manager offered another choice Chicken Tortilla Soup - a liquefied mess with too much spice. My Ribeye was a serving of fat with a little meat on the side. The best things were the grilled asparagus and home made bread. Service was excellent... so was the view of the Alamo at night . the food, not so much😞
Great view, great food but the wait staff can be a little overpowering.
Amazing service, amazing food. Everything 10/10. Most places are pricey just for the name and atmosphere but this brings everything, service, portion size, food quality. Coming here again soon!
Kale was very personable, fast and was spot on with his recommendations. I would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant — great bone in steak and wine selection perfect!
Owner personally asked how our dinner was.

So good, we returned a second night during our week-long vacation in San Antonio. Food was excellent - filets were juicy and tender, rack of lamb was super juicy and a very generous helping. Waiters,on both visits, were helpful, attentive and very knowledgeable about their menus as well as local city history. Could not beat having a window table overlooking the golden glow of the Alamo. Made for a memorable trip to San Antonio.
Thank you very much for your review! we are very happy that you enjoyed your visit! and please visit us again in your next trip to san antonio!
Waiter was rude and wasn’t familiar with his menu. He informed us, as he brought the appetizer to our table, that it was to be charged at “market price”. We overheard specials from the waiter at the table next to us.
Food was good but not exceptional although the bad taste left in my mouth came from the waiter.
We had a window table looking directly at the Alamo which was amazing along with a delicious steak.
I would give this restaurant zero stars if possible. Although the setting is gorgeous across from the Alamo that is where the benefits of dining here end. We ordered a fried lobster appetizer and it was served lukewarm at best. We split the salad and and it was decent although the purple onion was overwhelming. We spilt a bone in ribeye, baked potato and onion rings. The steak was to be medium plus and was raw...so raw that it had bloody pockets showing. In addition to the raw steak, it was COLD. The baked potato and onion rings were also COLD. We told the waiter and he said he'd be right back. He came back several moments later and scooped up all the food and took it away. The chef came over and apologized and said he would bring our food back and make it right. We finally realized they were going to warm up our food. We said we were not interested and just wanted our check. They did take off the cost of the steak but not the cold sides. We spent $350 for wine and cold food. Good thing the wine was worth it because it was the only good part of the evening. We will NEVER be back! Bohanans and the Palm around the corner are much better options!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! i truly apologize for the bad experience, there is just not excuse for that to happened and we will love to have the opportunity to serve you again and have the chance to make you change that bad experience.
Everything was perfect from the appetizers through the deserts. The steaks were wonderful. My New York was prepared medium, just as requested. My wife's Filet was tender and juicy. The onion rings and potatoes au gratin were plenty for two. My flambeyed cheesecake was the perfect end to a perfect meal.
thank you very much Keep in touch with us for future news about our new location in stone oak opening soon!
Waiter literally spooned my sides on my plate, and not only was that creepy in itself he slopped it on like a spaz. When they poured our wine I had to jump back to keep it from splashing me.
Never going back
good food...a bit slow service
Everything was great, except we had a Loud obnoxious group next to us. Once they left it was wonderful
