I arrived at 7:55 for 8:00 reservations, waited along with 20+ other people for hostess who did not reappear until 8:10 to take our name. I asked how long until we would be seated, and she let me know that she could tell me in 15 minutes how long we would have to wait to be seated. We would have to wait until 8:30 to find out when we would be seated for an 8:00 reservation? We cancelled our reservation and left. We went to Morton’s and had an incredible meal.

We had reservations for 8pm New Years Eve. We were not seated until after 9, and did not receive the check until close to 11:15. The poor waitstaff were severely understaffed, and although they did their best it was simply not enough. Most of our courses were cold, and overall it put a severe damper on our evening. Although there was a discount, it came on behalf of the waiter and not the hotel itself, and ultimately was little compensation. I will never come back.

As trendy of a spot as this place may be my husband and I were very disappointed New Year's eve. The prime fixe menu choice selections were great, the problem was the overall presentation of the restaurant and food. My husband's quail and risotto plate wasn't good in flavor. I went with the lamb chops, which were DELICIOUS! The only problem was after such a long wait, during their not so busy time, we had a 6 o'clock reservation, my pureed squash was brought out cold. As if it was sitting plated before the chops were added. Such a disappointment considering the price paid. Earlier in the week we took our family over to Cappy's downtown, they are ALWAYS consistent in their quality of food and service, definitely worth EVERY penny!!

Although personnel was very nice and willing to accommodate, service fell short. Waited for a seat when not busy. Requested a glass of wine and waited. Ordered a vegetable in place of starch and got fries. Host checked and offered his services but everything fell short of expectations.

Thanksgiving dinner was horrible! We selected the prefixed dinner and was very disappointed. Not much turkey, no gravey on turkey and we we asked for gravey, we got it about 10 minutes later. Got one roll each and they we stale. And the only desert offered was pecan pie. Really! No pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving??? We have had better Turkey at diners and Blackeye Peas when they were open. No wonder no reservations were available @ the Menger! Wouldn't go here food again!

Ate there twice on our trip to San Antonio over Thanksgiving weekend. We were staying in the hotel. They made a big deal about getting a table reserved for Thanksgiving dinner, as though it was very difficult to get a reservation, and we were lucky to have been able to get one. Two days before Thanksgiving, I got a call to confirm. Once at the hotel, someone called 15 minutes before our reservation saying our table was ready. I told her we would be right down. One minute later someone else called to tell us our table was ready. I assured him we were going to be there in a couple of minutes. We got there and the restaurant was half empty. The Thanksgiving turkey dinner was cold . One member of our party ordered chicken. She said it wasn't good. We went there for breakfast because we just needed to eat something and be on our way. The restaurant opens at 7:00am. We there got a few minutes after 7:00am and no one was around. Finally, we found a very unenthusiastic waitress . The coffee was terrible, the eggs benedict was served on white bread and the french toast I had was rubbery egg mess. And in the cold light of day, I could see that the restaurant we not very clean.

Great service, delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Yummy white Russian and best coffee I've had in awhile. Attentive, friendly service. A little pricey.

Very disappointing experience. I had eaten there a few years ago and enjoyed the great view of Alamo and the meal. There was no view at all due to construction on the roof. Both of our meals were quite bland. My guest had a steak that was also over-cooked. Did not have the wine we selected. Very bland food.

We were the only people in the dining room on a Saturday night- should have been a clue- and we still waited over an hour for our entrees, one of which had to be sent back because it was, not only overcooked, because t quite disgusting. The service was horrendous. Waiting 20 minutes for another drink when no one is in the dining room but yourselves and 5 people are at the bar is unacceptable. Our waiter was constantly off the floor back in the kitchen- which could have been on a the other side of the hotel- because he was always gone. Never checked on us- manager came up and apologized for wait. We sent back the ravioli special. It tasted like corn dogs, and got the dry, marginally better sea bass instead. The bread pudding was the worst dessert I have ever had a restaurant; dry, over cooked croutons with banana and Nutella on it, a five year old could have made it, and made it better. In general, the chef must suck- food was just bad, bad, bad. Paid $18 for parking to boot. Never again.

They took the reservation for 10 people but not even close to be ready for us. It took hours to get the food and almost no one got what they ordered. Order for one person was completely missed. They were way under staffed. Not a good experience. They have serious management problems. the food was good.

Terrible. We have been to Oro twice for Valentine's Day and had a great time, so we decided to go and enjoy their regular menu. There was no hostess to greet us. After standing at the podium for 7 to 8 minutes, my boyfriend had to go to the front lobby for assistance. We were seated and waited an additional 10 minutes before anyone asked if we've been helped. The bartender became our waiter from that point on. Took forever to get our drinks and appetizer. Fifteen minutes after ordering our main dishes, we were told they were out of filet mignon. The swordfish was very dry and flavorless. We were seated by the bar and there was the most obnoxious group right besides us who were very loud. Was not anything I expected and/or experience at Oro during their holiday pre fix meal event. Don't think we'll come again

It must have been an off night as the experience was disappointing. We waited over an hour for our entrees when there weren't very many of us dining at 7 pm Friday. Our waiter did inform us it would be awhile after 45 mi . My salmon was fair. It tasted like a bottle of chipotle sauce had been poured on top. My husband had the filet which was thick and way over cooked. He was unable to finish it do our server took it off his bill.
