A stunning disappointing experience. Water was poured and I requested ice. A complimentary appetizer was served. It was a spicy dish which I could not try. We ordered appetizers. The tuna was wonderful. The oysters were spicy with no warning on the menu. Then the wait came. The ice cubes and bread were dropped like an after thought. We were sharing a nice bottle of wine which we were on our own with , no one came to refill our glasses. After over an hour with no entrees or service we flagged down a server and said give us a bill, this is unacceptable. All of a sudden there was a flurry of activity at our table. We were so over this negative experience all we wanted was to settle the bill and leave. A lovely manager came over and after hearing our experience apologized and insisted on comping the bill. We came to eat not to feel humiliated for poor service, not to mention hungry

Overall, our experience was great! Rick was our server and he and his team tried all they could to make it a great experience. We sat by the windows overlooking Houston St. across from the Majestic Theater...it was a great table and we highly recommend sitting there; except during the winter. It's an old building, so since it was cold outside, it was a bit chilly in that particular eating area. The servers did bring out a space heater, but it didn't work very well ("A" for effort). Recommend new space heaters. As for the fare, the food was phenomenal!! 5 STAR rating from us! I had the Sea Bass and my wife had the Red Snapper...both fresh, cooked to perfection, and delicious! We topped off the meal with the Pecan Pie Ala mode...absolutely divine and worth it to switch out the vanilla bean for cinnamon ice cream to pair it with. We look forward to our next visit to Bohanan's! Thank you for a GREAT experience!

It was our first time there. Great food and outstanding service made the occasion of my wife's birthday memorable. Not a place we would ordinarily frequent, but we definitely plan on going back.

Walked across the street from the Majestic Theater for a wonderful place to drink and eat pre/post Theater. Arrived prior to reservation time and had drinks in which the bar setting was quiet and comfortable. Restaurant Staff attentive to every need. Steaks were excellent as previous visits revealed.

Great place to dine! Extensive drink menu featuring large selection of all types wines, liquors and beer! Amazingly sounding dinner menu made it difficult in choosing what to order! The server, Jose, was very accommodating and informative. He took the time to bring out a display of all their different cuts of beef with a detailed explanation of each, especially their Japanese cuts. Also, the crab cake was extremely delicious! Unfortunately, we didn’t have room for desert. Would definitely recommend!

Probably one of the best steaks I have had. Perfectly prepared, excellent sides, wild rice was phenomenal and I am not normally a rice conesour.

Waiter was extremely knowledgeable and the wine they suggested over my Trilogy was perfect.

Bohanan's is always great! While it is not the cheapest, I feel it is a better value than places that might be half as much. It is very consistent, as the food and service have always been top notch. Additionally, all of the sides are very very good, and they just don't rely on the main course impress patrons.

Bohanan’s was recommended to us by our hotel, Hotel Valencia, and was in easy walking distance which was fantastic and even more important since the temp outside was unseasonably cold. The restaurant is fabulous in every aspect, impeccable service, delicious food, wonderful atmosphere in an historic building featuring rich dark woodwork. A memorable experience well worth the cost.

I can’t get over the consistency of everything! We dine at Bohanan’s maybe twice a year and EVERYTHING; from service, food, ambiance, you can be assured it’s excellence! The entire waitstaff is impeccable. They seem to know you’re “thinking” of wanting a refill, or wanting ...anything! And yet they’re not bothersome. We refer to them as “ninja” waiters!
Every time we visit, it’s such a special evening for us.

Jim and I had the most enjoyable dinner Saturday evening ...New Year's weekend! We both ordered seafood and it was outstanding. The oysters, salmon, and the redfish dishes were so good. We had dinner in the new section of the restaurant and it was fabulous! Our waiter, Rick, was as outstanding as the food. A perfect evening...

One of the best 5 meals that I have had in my life. The grilled oysters and glazed bacon appetizers were fabulous. My party had the sautéed snapper, seared tuna and 11oz. filet for our entrees and each was prepared impeccably. The cherrries jubilee dessert provided a bit of flair and fire to end on. Enjoyed a nightcap and cigar on the outdoor patio. The 3 Ricks served us and were engaging and professional. Great night.

We had a reservation and had dinner at this restaurant and then got a nasty note from Open Table saying that we failed to show up. In that case, perhaps Open Table would like to refund the $700.00 we spent on the meal! It seems there is a failure to communicate between the restaurant and the booking service.

 (Milwaukee)·Dined on December 29, 2017

My wife and I visiting San Antonio from the Milwaukee Wisconsin area chose this restaurant as a special dinner having had it recommended to us for the steaks. We ate on the second floor overlooking the street with all the Christmas decorations twinkling in colors. We took in the sights on the Rive Walk and then walked to the restaurant’s convenient location. We had reservations and they were able to seat us a little early. The hostess, head waiter and our server were all excelent and friendly. We chose to skip the enormously expensive specialty cut steaks that would have stuffed us to the gills. I had the NY Strip and my wife had the Rib Eye and both were plenty to eat and were outstanding. With drinks and expensive side dishes the bill was over $150 for the two of us but we knew it was an expensive restaurant and it was worth it for a special evening. The only complaint I had the entire night was when I ordered a Ginger Ale with my dinner. It was the worst Ginger Ale I have ever had. It was probably a gourmet type of Ginger Ale that accented the “ginger” and it tasted as if it was mostly soap. Could not drink it. But overall it was a great meal superbly prepared and served and I would definitely go back (just wouldn’t order any Ginger Ale!).
