When we got to the restaurant they already had our table waiting for us, so we didn’t had to wait which was great. It is a very nice restaurant, really private, and great for a celebration such as New Years Eve, it also is very picturesque, it just has a vibe of happiness al over the place. Everybody working in the restaurant had the best actitude and were extremely nice. The food was great, really tasty and just indescribable, the special menu they had for New Years Eve was just perfect for the occasion. Amazing experience in an amazing restaurant, we loved it.
Un poco caro pero era menú de año nuevo, pero todo estuvo espectacular
What a wonderful way to close 2017. The menu was unique and creative. Every course was presented beautifully and delicious. The staff was very attentive. This is definitely a place to dine when visiting San Antonio
Another fabulous meal at Bella. Our server, Nathan, was outstanding.
Food and atmosphere was excellent! But seating is very cramped inside .
Great Food! Great service! It’s a must see when in SA. The food is cooked to perfection.
Food and service are always fabulous. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
by far a hawaii visitor’s first visit to san anyonio’s highlight dining experience w/ every other plus. amazing welcome & stellar service with meal selections that leave a memorable afterglow.
We read all the reviews for Bella on the River; and, while somewhat inconsistent, we decided to try it during a getaway to San Antonio. We now know why the reviews are inconsistent. Our server was very nice; but, hurried us a bit. We shared (we’re seniors with lighter appetite these days) a salad that was excellent. The server brought us bread with roasted whole garlic and olive oil that was excellent. We ordered the paella to share and the server told us five minutes (uh oh!). Sure enough the paella arrived in five minutes, obviously pre-prepared. The plate itself was hot; shellfish on top were cold. Rice was lukewarm, as was a single piece of chicken and chorizo was pretty much MIA. Rice and peas were stuck together and not even fluffed. Too bad because the dish was really well seasoned and had it been made to order versus reheated, it looked to be excellent. So for those who get fresh dishes, good reviews come. Hence it is the cause of inconsistency in reviews. Be forewarned and I’m sure it will be a positive experience. As a positive, the server told the manager about our dissatisfaction and he brought us fresh paella; but, the damage was done. He offered to take it off our bill; but, we’re not looking for handouts. He should have just taken it off the bill. Good luck! It is a lovely restaurant and many people have had good meals there. Just don’t be rushed and request fresh.
A nice gem in the river walk. Food was very good, lamb was especially tasty. Pork was a bit dry, really needed the red pasta side to complete it. Bread is something that should not be missed. Roasted garlic dip is outstanding. Server was great, even thought the place was pretty much packed. All in all a really good evening. We will be back!
