    Food and service were great. Not crowded but it was a Tuesday. Pricey, but that's to be expected. Third visit in the last 20 years and we'll go again in the future.

    From the moment we walked into the elevators, to the last bite of our anniversary molten chocolate cake, everything was wonderful. We had the pleasure of Luke as our server, and he went out of his way to make our evening was one to remember. The only thing that was maybe better than the service and the view, was the food! We had the ahi tuna and lobster, with mushrooms and cocktails. I think we’ve found our new anniversary tradition. Thank you to everyone there who helped make it all happen!

    Beautiful view. The waiter was nice and courteous. Drinks took a very long time. Almost twenty minutes. I’ve been to a Chart House before. The food at the location in San Antonio was surprisingly average. I could have had a similar meal at several much less expensive national chains. It was disappointing because the view was amazing.

    Jeremy, our primary waiter was very interesting and convincingly genuine with our experience enjoyment. This was the first time since 1968 that I have been to the top of the Tower of the Americas and it was my wife, Terri and my 35th anniversary and Terri’s 68th birthday party from me to her. We enjoyed our time together and the food was perfect.

    We were seated and it took 30 minutes before our waiter noticed us and even asked if we would like some water! He walked past our table a good amount of times. It’s understandable when you’re busy but they were not so it was ridiculous and after FINALLY getting water he never returned for a huge while to even ask for our order, unfortunately i can not give a review on the food as we left because the service was horrible! Views were beautiful though.

    The view from the tower is honestly the best part. The food was average at best, super basic for the high price they charge. Drinks were the best part of the meal. Service was extremely slow. We saw our server maybe 3 or 4 times during the whole mean and never got one of the drinks we asked for. We've been to another Chart house in Virginia before and we had the same expectations for the quality of food but unfortunately this locations food does not live up to the quality we had at the other location. This is one of those places that you go maybe ONCE for the experience. Not worth it to dine there again. I would suggest eating somewhere else better/more reasonably priced and just going up to the towers observatory for the view.

    We hit this place everything we come to SA. Great food and great views! Love it. We are from Austin and come here all the time. Yes, it's touristy, but, the view is great, the 601 bar is awesome foe pre-dinner drinks, and the seafood ar Chart House rocks! Pricey but worth it. Elevator rife is free to guests with reservations.

    Our server Mo was awesome. It was a back to school lunch for my kids and the love going to the tower. To them it’s a very special occasion because it’s a day they can get whatever they want. No was very attentive to them. Highly recommend her.

    We arrived at 12, were seated and then waited on our server. On the whole the service was extremely slow. The server was very friendly but that couldn't make up for the slowness of delivery. We got our appetizers about 40 minutes after we ordered and then our entrees at least another 40 minutes later. We went there for lunch, arrived promptly at 12 and were finally able to leave about 2:20. When we first arrived it was not busy but it did pick up after a while but still not enough to cause such a delay. I assumed they were short staffed but there was never an reason given for the slowness of delivery. My food was ok, nothing special but my husband did enjoy his filet mignon and said the espresso was the best he'd had in a long time.

    To be honest, we had low expectations for the food, but it is definitely not a tourist trap. Minus an underwhelming (and overpriced) appetizer, the rest of our meal with fantastic. From the steak and fish to chicken and pasta, each dish was terrific and we truly enjoyed our meal. It was a lovely evening with fantastic service.

    Upon making a reservation, they asked if we are celebrating something special which I was happy to share it was our kiddos 8th birthday. He has asked every time we drive by that we have dinner at the “Top of the City.” Upon arriving, you need to greet the host or you will be yelled at by the person down the hall for not having a white ticket. Upon exiting, we were walked to the only table that had 2 seats that face the wall of the restaurant and 2 seats that offer a view. We had a 5:30 reservation. As we made our first tour around the restaurant, my view of spiderwebs on the picture frames & a loud & less than orderly kitchen, I moved my chair to seat at the head of the table. When we did this, we accidently spilled our water glass, thankfully it hadn’t been refilled so it was primarily ice. We apologized & shared this with the server, she looked at the floor & walked away & never did return to pick it up. The server was not engaging & not sure she spoke more than 12 words throughout the entire dining experience. We had expressed we were not in a hurry and mistakenly gave our 2nd and 3rd course at the same time. Our entrees were rudely dropped while we were still eating our salads so we awkwardly had to make room for our entrees and our salads to be consumed at the same time. When we finished, we ordered dessert & did appreciate the restaurant offered a complimentary dessert in addition to our order; however, they offered a coffee/espresso flavored ice-cream cake to our 8-year-old. It was thoughtless & showed the inexperience of their staff. But the kicker for me, the server literally circled the 20% gratuity verbiage on the bottom of the check. My suggestion: Take a free ride up to the bar—no ticket required, take a picture & go eat at one of the many amazing restaurants in our city. This restaurant relies on the hearts of kiddos wanting to see the Top of the City and has no compassion for service or celebrating special moments.

    Took over an hour to get our food. Once we got our food, it was cold. Ordered the swordfish, very bland and cheap looking for the price.
