Bohanan's was exceptional! The ambiance is very nice. Our sever was Dom and service could not have been better. The food offerings were outstanding and everything was well prepared. The wine list is very good. This was our first visit to Bohanan's but we will be back!

The food is always outstanding here. Tonight, the service lacked tremendously. Perhaps there was too much happening all at one time which caused a major slowdown in the kitchen. But, to take over an hour to cook a 7 oz filet and chicken, only to have 10 minutes to eat it, was a significant problem for us. I really hate to eat that fast; you truly cannot enjoy well prepared (and expensive) food.

Service was slow on my last visit. They even talked me out of a steak because they were slammed. At this time of year that’s not acceptable.

This was our third visit to Bohanan's. Because of our past positive experiences, we decided to go back for our wedding anniversary. We were disappointed this time. I asked for my steak medium well and the server asked if it was ok if they butterflied it, which I was. When the steak came out, I saw that they did not butterfly it and it had a lot of pink for being medium well. I ate a few pieces and as i got more into the middle of it, I found more and more pink, so I had to ask them to send it back to cook it longer. In the past I have found this to be one of the best tasting steaks that I've ever had, but this time all I tasted was char. It was overwhelming to the point where I did not enjoy it. I also ordered 2 drinks from the bar, hoping to be served high quality drinks and get a little tipsy, but I did not at all, so I felt like we spent $30 on drinks that I could have gotten somewhere else for a lot cheaper. Also, at the beginning of the meal, our server asked us if we were going to see the show at the Majestic across the street after dinner. We said yes. Our dinner reservation was at 5, and the show at 7:30. We decided to order dessert since we had plenty of time. 25 minutes later I finally got mine and the server told my husband that they were remaking his because they didn't like how the presentation of it came out. By this time we only had 15 mins before the show started. My husband finally got his, with the wrong ice cream flavor, but since we didn't have time to wait on the correct one, we just ate our desserts in a rush and did not get to enjoy them. They did comp our desserts, but since there were multiple issues, I don't know if we will be returning. It is pricey so we only treat ourselves to a place like this once a year, but we will probably look into other establishments to celebrate our anniversary.

In our opinion, Bohanon's is the best restaurant in San Antonio. The food is superb, the service is outstanding and the wine list is excellent. We started with the French onion soup and followed with the filet and a ribeye. Our side was the glorious lobster creamed corn - heavenly .
Treat yourself to Bohanon's and the bar will be raised significantly over other SA restaurants.

We had a great time celebrating my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. We were a party of 8, and we sat in a private room with a window that revealed a view into the kitchen. (There was a switch that turned the window from opaque to transparent, so we only saw the kitchen for about 20 minutes while they were preparing our steaks.) It is what I would expect from a fine steakhouse. Service was slow and methodical, allowing us to linger and enjoy a lengthy meal. Do not expect to get in and out in an hour. Very knowledgable waitstaff. The pricing on Open Table says $30-$50, but that's not realistic at all. The sides are a la carte, so you can expect $50+. We got out of there for $70 per person including tip, and only 3 of us had a cocktail and we didn't order wine. I would expect a celebration would mean $100 per person easily. Worth it in my opinion, but some might get shocked by the bill based on the Open Table guidance. Highly recommended, worth the price. Perfect for special occasions.

We celebrated our 3rd Anniversary and they had us in a quiet room away from the main dining crowd. Our main server Todd was great and so was the staff that assisted him. Food was exquisite. My wife and I had a great time. Only recommendation is for diners to account for Downtown traffic and parking when going. Valet is definitely the way to go.

We have been trying to make it to Bohanan’s for at least a year. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of the crowds or traffic in downtown San Antonio. We arrived a bit early (40 mins) expecting to just sit at the bar for a bit, but to our surprise, we were seated early. The atmosphere was amazing. The service was amazing. The food was absolutely everything we had hoped it would be. The only downfall would be the pricing. It is very disheartening to us that a person of average means would never be able to experience such an exquisite meal. I’ve said the same thing about a few other restaurants. Maybe consider a few lower/moderate priced items. The experience of dining with your restaurant honestly could change someone’s opinion of “fine dining”.

Overall...Bohanan’s made into our top five dining experiences! Thank you.

Our evening once again lived up to expectations. Our favorite place for occasion dining, but also enjoy just dropping in for lunch. This time the seafood was exceptional. Friendly, knowledgeable, polite staff. Our only gripe was with the San Antonio traffic there on theater night, but that is a minor inconvenience.
