Absolutely amazing as always! My favorite restaurant ever! We had the 7oz filet & New York Strip that were cooked to perfection! My son had the Red snapper which was perfectly seasoned. Our sides included baked potato, lobster mac n cheese (OMG!!!) and our favorite ritz cracker crusted baked squash!

Food and service was outstanding. The noise level was higher than it should have been. Unfortunately, when the server was preparing the desert, there wasn’t enough room to prepare at the table so he had to prepare on the other side of the table next to us. They appreciated the preparation, wish we could have.

The food was very good. The cocktails are strong, but good. I would highly recommend the Mac and Cheese as a side. The French onion soup was good, but I don’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t enjoy a lot of cheese. The Creme Brûlée was good, but not outstanding. Just kinda plain. This would have been a five star experience, but the service brought it down. The service would have been great, had I not heard our server’s interactions with his other tables. He provided much more detail and tried to sell a lot more to the other tables. He was much descriptive about the more expensive off menu items with the other tables. He also tried to sell more sides to them. He also offered to bring the meat cart out for people that had already been there. But he didn’t do so for us. My only thought as to why he didn’t is because my friend and I are in our 20’s. So I assume he thought we wouldn’t be big spenders. This is unfortunate, but the experience was still really good.

48th Anniversary. Let them know we would be celebrating when we made our reservation. No mention or interest in our special event. Said nothing, did nothing. You could use a lesson from Ruth's Chris.

Waiter service average at best. Barely checked with us. Waited forever to request our check, longer to get it, even longer than that to settle up and leave.

Bar service average as well. Took way to long to get a second round of drinks, this was on a Wed. night, not terribly busy.

First time visiting this restaurant. Not impressed.

This was our 2nd visit to Bohanan's it was just as great at our first visit. A little noisy upstairs but still able to enjoy our conversations. Downstairs is totally noisy great place to have a drink but not to enjoy your meal. The food was as expected OUTSTANDING, service was outstanding as well. Pricey yes, however the only prices we took issue with was the cost of sauces. The sauces were outstanding but felt over priced. Would we recommend Bohanan's, yes & we have & will continue to do so and yes we hope to be able return again.

Had a 12noon reservation, pulled up ,no valet around went inside asked nobody there to greet us , after going back outside and waiting for 10 mins no body showed up had to drive 4 blocks away to find parking , ..no waiter or matrade wound up sitting at the bar , after ordering ribeyes and waiting 45 mins for our food it arrived cold and over cooked,..as we didn't have another 45 mins to wait for another steak I just ate the over cooked one , second we were never offered any sides our plates just arrived with fries ?..no mash potatoes or baked potatoes?....just not on par with a 100 dollar dining experience.

Although the restaurant came highly recommended we were disappointed with several aspects. The evening began well, we arrived early and had a cocktail and appetizer at the bar, had nice conversation with a fellow guest. When seated upstairs we were placed in a small side room where 2 other families with children were seated. I told my husband I wanted to be seated in the mail dining room, but he said since we were wearing jeans(not messy mind you) they seated us back there. Yes, we had read the dress rules before coming and felt we were business casual at least by NYC standards. We ordered salads, bottle of wine and main courses. The noise level was high with the kids. My steak was served to me and about 5 minutes later my husband received his~ our meals should have been served together. That was it, I did tell the hostess how unhappy we were with our location, and they took some money off the bill, but it was too late~ it was never about the money. A dinner for two at $300 should have been a lovely experience, but unfortunately it was not. This was our last night in San Antonio and unfortunately put a damper on the entire trip.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. My only complaint on my steak would be that the first cut was cooked to what I call a perfect medium rare. As I proceeded to the middle of the ribeye I believe it was closer to rare. Top side of the steak was cooked approximately 1/8 down in the steak but the bottom was barely cooked. It was such a good cut that I didn't want to complain. I stated clearly tot our waiter that is was my wife's birthday and at your prices I was expecting her to receive a little something for desert...

We’re not sure what happened to the quality of the food. I had a ribeye and my wife had the red snapper royale. We’ve had both times before and had often bragged about how great the food is and the best we’ve ever tasted. This time it was by far the worst. I can only assume the kitchen staff must be new or the chef was having a bad day. It’s an understatement to say we were disappointed. The staff was outstanding as usual. We had leftovers that we did not pick up after the show at the Majestic. It was that bad.

Salmon was excellent not over cooked. Mushrooms were the highlight. Creamed spinach was excellent not swimming in cream and I don’t normally like cooked spinach. Truffles fries were not my thing although my guests liked them. To me it was an odd taste. Old school gentlemen club atmosphere. Was expecting to see top hats at any moment. Servers were friendly and attentive. Especially Fox. I would go again.

We had to practically yell because of the noise levels. The steak was ok but nothing I couldn’t have had for half the price. Lobster cream corn was terrible. Crab cake and creme brûlée were very good. I would try another place before this one again. Ticked me off that they charged for parking too. Spend that much money and not get parking included is ridiculous.

Staff was very friendly hospitable and efficient. Every single staff member greet us, we were very welcomed. Decor and ambiance was very warm and tasteful.
French roasted oyster was good. French onion soup was delicious and flavorful. My filet was undercooked - red centered for medium?. I had to send it back twice. My husband had salmon _- it looked great but he thought it tasted average. We did not have dessert but their specialty seems to be table side flambé desserts.

It was our first time to dine there. Took my husband for his birthday and everything was fantastic. I wasn’t familiar with the layout so I didn’t request a specific area but we were given the perfect section. Right by the window over looking the Majestic. Great service and the food was delicious.

We came back for dinner from Las Vegas. Ate here a few years ago and promised to come back. The Banana Fosters is to die for. The food is beyond description. Just out of this world. The service is above 5 star. Cannot say enough good about his place. The bar is also outstanding if you are a little early for your reservation.
