Our host Nathaniel was fantastic. The host made a special vegan dish for one person in our party and it was such a hit that we ordered another. Fantastic meal overall!

Way (way) overpriced for what you get. The order arrived chaotically and clearly there was a breakdown in the kitchen. Our server wasn't too responsive in letting us know that our order of sticky buns wasn't arriving until we almost finished our meal. By the time it arrived we explained we are done and we don't want it. It was just an overall waste of time and money. Sorry I went there.

Food was absolutely delicious and unique. I made a reservation, just wish we had a quieter table for a couple of old friends to catch up. Was hard to hear my friend. But overall a great experience and I will be returning!

We enjoyed the relaxed feel of this spot. We sat outside with a dog on an airy patio and stayed dry through an afternoon thunderstorm. The spring rolls and empanadas were fantastic. Service was delayed at first, maybe due to our mid-afternoon arrival, but once they discovered us, we had excellent, friendly servers. Beer was local and great.

Had to wait forever for food. Table of 6 next to us arrived after we ordered and got all their food and ate it before we got ours. No apology was ever made for wait. Had 2 appetizers and left after waiting for check.

Great foods fun dishes, huge portions. Sake flights are a must. My only critique is that we had to sit inside, which didn’t quite share the beautiful ambiance of the exterior.

Went for Mothes Day dinner. Sashimi and Poke bowl were not worth the $50 for two dinner. Skip these dishes, Get your Sashimi and poke bowl from H-E-B. We waited almost 45 minutes when they went to fish for our order at the River Walk. Our waiter finally came by and stated “you’ve been waiting for a while, would you like me to check on your order?” No, I just want to sit here starving and drinking your room temp water!!! To be fair, maybe the Peruvian food is good but not going back. They should not do Asian if they can’t do it right.

Excellent food. We tried a large variety of the menu from the pot stickers to the octopus. Highly recommend the wings which had a great flavor and crust and the octopus was perfectly cooked, not the least rubbery and the sauce was great.

The steamed buns were fantastic and the mango homachi was super flavorful. We tried three of the mixed drinks and all three were balanced, good quality and highly enjoyed.

The service was fast and attentive and even made us a fresh batch of brewed iced tea.

Great meal enjoyed by all including our picky eaters. Thank you.

Kind of a strange place. Second time dining here and had similar experience both times. Menu is limited with more “small plate” options than entrees. I’m not picky, but didn’t find any stand out items on menu which makes it difficult to know what to order. All the food that we ordered was really good—great quality and presentation.

It is a place that we like a lot, unfortunately the portion of octopus was not correct, I hope it does not happen again and that the chef admits that he was wrong

The service and the ambiance were great. I just wish their were more food options on the menu and their were some food options that were less than $19. Pretty expensive but for a nice dinner with the family, it wasn’t bad.

We had a lovely lunch on the shaded patio with great people watching at the Pearl. Our waiter was knowledgeable and obtained the answers to our questions about leavening agents used in the steamed buns, which were excellent--an innovative and savory riff on the ubiquitous Chinese steamed pork buns I've had elsewhere.
Scallop cebiche and teriyaki chicken chaufa completed a memorable meal. Botika is one of my favorites in San Antonio. I've eaten there many times, and it never disappoints. It was the first time for my companion, but not the last.

We stopped by for dinner before heading to a Spurs game. The drinks were amazing, the food was delicious, and the service was spectacular! We shared sushi and a few appetizers. I highly recommend the steamed buns! Sophia was a doll! Great service! Great recommendations! We will definitely be coming back!

The people who served us were very attentive. All the employees and guests seemed to b following COVID protocols to the best of their ability. Tables inside were socially distanced. We would have eaten outside if it had not been raining. There seemed to be lots of room out there. The food was very tasty. We only wish there had been more vegetarian options. I lived in Peru for three years. The menu seemed to be more Asian than Peruvian. But my wife and I enjoy Asian a great deal do we were not the least disappointed.
