The roasted red tomato salsa was great...the Fish tacos were amazing! The Jalapeno Honey sauce was fabulous!
I googled Acenar, and was not disappointed!
The food was very competent but not outstanding. Indoor seating is challenging due to the noise level (and that's not something that normally bothers us).
I was a little disappointed with Ácenar. It look like it was new modern take on Tex mex on their website but it was just plain food. I got the enchiladas verdes and they tasted like they had been under a hot light for a while and were not that interesting. My husband got the shrimp tacos and thought they were ok. Nothing special about the rice and beans. The website said they have a great happy hour but the problem is it is only in the bar. Don’t think we would go back again. ☹️😒
Great salsa. Food was very tasty. We will return.
I really enjoyed my anniversary so much. From the food to the mariachi band everything was amazing.
Was not very impressed. The service was fine. We felt like they were reaching to be a higher end restaurant but came up short. The food was not bad it just wasn’t very good. It was surprising because it seemed like it was highly recommend.
Amazing margaritas and guacamole! Worth a short walk through beautiful downtown San Antonio!
We've been going to Aceñar for years, used to be an excellent dining experience, now not so much. Still good, no longer awesome. If you're wanting to carry on a conversation over dinner, skip the back room... the noise level is ridiculous, especially with a couple of large groups. Really need to look at the acoustics, Aceñar, need some sound absorbing material in there.
We went before heading to the Majestic and it was perfect! Delicious margaritas and the food was excellent!
The food was delicious, the margarita was perfect, and the tres leches cake was to die for! It was easy to access from the Riverwalk. The salsa with the chips was smoky with the perfect amount of spice. I got the jicama shrimp tacos with a side of beans, and I was satisfied. Even though they were very busy, I had good service. I definitely recommend reservations!
Food was great, and Decor as well. It was a bit loud, especially by the time we left. We had a 6:30 reservation on a Friday evening.
The wait staff was excellent. Efficient and friendly.
This was once was a nice pre-show place to eat and have a drink or two. The atmosphere was almost always upbeat yet respectfully quiet.
The last several visits have been just an audible nightmare. The noise level inside the dining hall and adjacent extra dining room has increased to near unbearable levels...and certainly a decibel too high for a table of two to be able to hear each other!
We've been here several times. The food is consistently good, but not outstanding. And when it's busy, the downstairs seating area can get very loud, with many tables close together, and the staff coming in and out of the adjoining kitchen often.
Great food! Great service! Great location on the Riverwalk!
