Steakhouse
18 Oaks focuses on outstanding quality of meats and seafood prepared with style and expertise. Food is masterfully prepared showing a sensibility of season leveraging the best products in Texas. The Menu gracefully flows from a modern breakfast to a lunch menu of American flair with a splattering of steakhouse favorites to a classic steakhouse in the evenings. Entrees feature skillfully prepared premium steaks and seafood with your choice of sauces...located within the majestic grounds of the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. 18 Oaks not only is the center of activity in the TPC San Antonio Club House, but we represent the highest level of commitment to locally produced, organic ingredients in the area, leveraging the strong relationships developed with local farmers, ranchers, winemakers and brewers. The design is a delicate balance of warm tones and cool textures that reflect a lively, refined and inviting space.

Food was good, but service wasn’t that great for being an upscale restaurant. It was also our first time, and the experience could’ve been better.

It's always nice to have a special place for special occasions and 18 Oaks fits into that mode. It is a bit more expensive but the food and service make up for it. If the wine list is limited for you, it should improve after the pandemic but we will have to wait and see.

All was great it just felt a little sterile due to Covid. Not the fault of restaurant. Can’t wait to be back to normal!

Food is amazing! The noise level was disappointing. There were several people but then adding in screaming kids, the tv with football games on, etc... I would not recommend this place for an intimate dinner. The food is amazing... drinks are good.. be prepared to drop $100+. The service was a little disappointing, our waiter had tables inside and out so he was very busy and wasn’t able to pay much attention to us. I also constantly was cold and smelled cigarette smoke each time the door opened.. again this isn’t the space for a special dinner with little distractions.

There were some loud children running between tables, but otherwise it was a wonderful experience. The experience was kind of rocky until the kids finally left.

I felt the meal was a bit overpriced for the quality. Our server was attentive and helpful. The atmosphere would be more interesting with candle light, linens and a bit more formality. It was very dark in the restaurant. I’ve also been to Cibolo Moon, which is also on the JW Marriott property, which I prefer. I prefer Cibolo Moon where the cocktail menu is extensive and the atmosphere is more pleasant. Overall the food and atmosphere were just ok but the service was excellent.

Service was great and great conversation with our server. Great wine recommendation. Food on other hand (main course) could have been better. Both our steaks were over cooked based on asks (medium rare) and side items weren't the best. Also what left the worst taste for us was the manager went to every table to check in on guests except for ours. Was very off-putting. And quite unfortunate to be honest.

Great place for martinis, excellent wine selection, best steaks ever and save room for the bread pudding! This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants and we go back at least once a month. They follow all protocols for covid so we always feel safe and secure.

Bad start to our Anniversary dinner but once seated, it got better.

We had reservations for 7:15pm but did not actually get to our table until 7:45pm. The manager was very apologetic and provided us with complimentary appetizers and a dessert to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

One of the best ribeyes I ever had, if not the best! The staff was great. The only reason why I gave the food one less star is because the Mac and cheese could be better. It was less than average. But I wasn’t that upset because everything else was beyond delicious

Rarely is every aspect of a meal excellent- salad, entree, side, dessert. But starting with our tomato arugula salad, my filet and husbands New York Strip, side of asparagus, creme brûlée dessert, and even the rolls- all were outstanding. And our server was great too. We will definitely come back.
