We come to Bohanan’s every year on our trip down to San Antonio and we have never once had anything less than an outstanding meal. The service is top notch, the food comes out perfectly every time and we’ve never once had a complaint about anything. This is probably our favorite steakhouse we’ve ever been to.

We ordered steaks and both of our steaks lacked salt and were overly peppered. We had to ask for salt and waited for a while for a staff member to get it since we didn’t have it at the table. My husbands steak was thin and cooked well done even though he ordered it medium. There was no pink. Very disappointed in paying over $100 for such a poor meal. The highlight was ordering the Tio Mio it was a great cocktail and I needed it.

Our waiter was not good at all.
He was not friendly, not accommodating, nor efficient.
When I spend $300 at a restaurant I expect a lot better everything.
My wife had to send her over done steak back, and my steak was the same.
Terrible experience on Valentines Day!
I expected so much more!

My wife and I met on Valentine’s Day 39 years ago. We thought we’d go back to Bohanan‘s for Valentine’s dinner, as we’d been there four or five times since 2005 for very special occasions. It started off nice with their classic candied jalapeños and cream cheese. It’s great. The seared scallops that we had as an appetizer were unbelievable. And then the dinner went south, real fast. It wasn’t just one thing; it was a combination of things. My wife’s filet was overcooked, sent it back and came out undercooked (verified by the servers), but we didn’t send it back again. My ribeye steak was very thin like a ribeye from Chili’s, and got cold while waiting for my wife’s filet. My water glass was empty for 10 to 15 minutes. A few years earlier we went and had Nigerian Prawns as an appetizer. Our server gave us the run down, no mention of Nigerian Prawns. We ordered our appetizer and then we hear a server at the next table recommending the Nigerian Prawns. The kicker was they prepared our table-side Cherries Jubilee two tables away (approximately 12 feet). The nearest couple to the show were really oohing and aahing. They really enjoyed it! I was told that since our table was along a “walkway” they couldn’t do it there. But why didn’t they tell me that when we ordered it? Bohanan’s had always been excellent until last night.
They apologized...didn’t charge us for a couple items, blah blah blah blah blah, but it doesn’t make up for the ruined occasion. What a disappointing experience.

Everything was great, service, food, ambiance. The French onion soup, the fois gras, the steak, the truffle fries, the roasted vegetables were all great. The lamb was good but thinner chops than I expected or like. Drinks very good. Our host was exceptional. Great experience for valentines.

Went to Bohanan's for my husband's birthday and we were not disappointed. Each dish was wonderful and the service was perfect. I believe that was one of, if not the best, steak I've ever had. I would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

This was the first time I had dined with Bohanan’s. This was the best dining experience of my life. From the moment you walk in you are greeted and treated with the upmost care. The staff are friendly, prompt, and attentive. I would suggest making reservations days in advance or you will run the risk of not being able to get a table or one very late. We arrive about 15 minutes prior to our reservation. While waiting for our table I had a mojito. It was perfect. We were seated right at our specified time. Along the way the staff was very polite with conversation and welcoming. Our waiter was Gabriel. From the moment we sat down to the time we left he was so helpful and kind. He was very thorough with the food menu, drink menu, and follow up service. It’s great to have customer service such as this. I had the filet, sautéed crab, and lobster corn. This was hands down the best tasting steak and crab I’ve ever eaten before. The taste was almost indescribable. I am so glad we dined here while I visited. I will definitely come back next time I am in town.

We were a part of 4 and we were all impressed from our initial greeting and until we left the establishment. Everything was superb: food, drink, service, ambience. This was a “WOW” experience! We live in a Vermont and definitely would return to Bohannon’s when back in San Antonio.

The food, server, and menu were absolutely fantastic. Heard from multiple people that Bohanan's was the best steakhouse in San Antonio. Our server was well versed in the history of the owner/chef, giving us a larger appreciation for the meal we were about to have. Only thing that took our party back was the abrasive nature of the host when we arrived. Other than the host displaying more of a positive attitude towards his guests, not sure what more we could ask for.

First class service. Has a nice local feel with excellent wait staff and an wonderful ambiance. Good for any occasion business or family. One of the best steakhouses in the country clearly.

Refreshing to see a local steak house when ordinarily you just see a bunch of chains.

Bohanan's has outstanding steaks and seafood. Our party of 4 had a terrific dining experience following a Saturday afternoon show at The Majestic Theater. The service is exemplary and the food absolutely sensational. I had the grilled shrimp accompanies by a giant prawn. My wife went for a wagyu filet that was quite simply amazing! We loved the dining room and our wait staff superb. What a great dining experience we had.
