Located at the "Gateway to Southtown," the Historic and Majestic Firehouse #7 is home to Restauranteur Andrew Goodman and Chef Stefan Bowers newest concept, Battalion. After a nearly two year renovation, "The Rock" has been restored as the crown jewel of Southtown. Overlooking the spectacular downtown cityscape and the famous Tower of Americas, Battalion's contemporary design merges perfectly alongside the historic building's strong, yet weathered 1920's craftsmanship. Chef Bowers has created an extensive menu of fresh pastas, char-grilled meats, stunning vegetable dishes and Italian classics. Complimenting the menu is a comprehensive wine list and a refreshingly original cocktail program.

Best upscale restaurant in San Antonio! Staff was very attentive to the OpenTable requests and acknowledged our anniversary! We had the Gnocchi to start, the Lamb and TBone steak. The dessert sampler was decadent and went very well with the bottle of Centurri Moscato we ordered.

Loved everything about “B!”
From the Grey Goose Martini to the lemony custard tart.
The decor was forward thinking...Sophisticated Midern!

Excellent waiter. Tiramisu was delicious as was the pasta. Chicken parm was over cooked and tough.

Most Italian food is heavy and you leave feeling horrible. Not here! It's light, focused on favor and just right. We tried 5 different dishes and all were outstanding. Can't wait to go again.

The pasta was fantastic! I would go back for that alone.
The rest of the meal was a bit underwhelming.

This place is LOUD. It was difficult to converse with a party of four. The food is good but nothing unusually amazing. The ambiance is "cold". It's concrete with stone top tables. Not fancy but not casual. We all commented that we had a hard time with the feng shui of the place. And aside from some names of drinks on the menu, some fake firefighter poles, and one search light the connection to the cool old firehouse is sadly absent.

Maybe I had my bar a little high, but I was somewhat disappointed with the overall experience. A little pricey for what you get. Recommended, with a warning.

Not a big champagne selection. Actually didn’t have any. They had prosecco and other sparkling wines. It’s way too loud. We had to speak at the top of our voices which was bordering yelling Fish and pasta was very good. Will return

All the food was excellent! It’s a really cool building, but the openness of it makes it pretty loud. We will definitely be back. It would be great for a birthday or special occasion.

Entrée was brought out lukewarm and was immediately taken back and a new one prepared. Food was very good. Service good except took long time to replace entrée. Very noisy but an interesting place formally a fire station. Other than high noise level worth returning.

My dad’s birthday, hostesses were sweet and told him happy birthday right when we came in. Server was on top of everything and we always had water and our table was always cleared so fast. Food was amazing and filling and I love the interior— it’s a lovely space.
