We enjoy going to rotating restaurants and this was no exception. It is high above San Antonio which allows for a view of the city well beyond the normal perimeter. The food was well prepared and very good. I enjoyed the salmon with rice pilaf and steamed vegetables. My husband had the clam chowder (which was cooked to perfection) as well as the chicken and angel hair pasta. We had the lava cake for dessert and it was also wonderful. This is a great choice for an evening out!

The venue was spectacular with a revolving dining room giving 360 degrees view of San Antonio/ The best New England Clam Chowder I've ever had and I've had it many times in New England. The staff were very attentive and friendly. This is highly recommended but make sure you have reservations

15 years ago I ate here with my wife. It was some of the best food I have ever had. When I went back for my 15th anniversary, I just do not know what happened to the place. The wait staff, and the experience were outstanding, and our waitress made the experience great.

The food was terrible. I had the prime rib, and for over $30 I could get twice as much and better steaks ant any steak house in Texas. Seriously. Make the cooks work with Texas rad house for a while. a Medium Rare steak is supposed to have pink, mine had none.

Your seafood was over priced. Red Lobster has better quality for half the price.

The only thing this restaurant had going for it was its location, with a rotating view, and outstanding staff.

I enjoyed our family dinner, in spite of it being pretty expensive. I expected to pay quite a bit with gratuity, but it came to almost $100 for a party of 4 adults. Lovely dishes, delicious drinks, and wonderful service. Unfortunately, the day we came it was heavy rain, so I know my husband did not get the lovely view that I have seen there before. The windows could have some more plaques telling you what you were looking at, not just the direction. Some advice on parking - pay for more than 2 hours so you don't feel rushed, especially when the wait for the elevator eats into your relaxing time over your meal.
Overall, it was worth the visit.

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary which we noted when making the reservation. The wait staff sat us at a small private booth for our dinner. The ambiance and food were excellent. This is a restaurant sitting at the top of the tower in downtown San Antonio and it rotates so the views around the city were great. Our waitress was very attentive and efficient. I would recommend anyone visiting the San Antonio area.

My mother and I were in San Antonio for a weekend trip for her birthday. We had a marvelous dinner at Chart House. The food was awesome, as was our server, Rachel. The view was incredible (our reservation was at 7pm so we had a good bit of sunshine followed by sundown and the night view). I highly recommend this restaurant. It certainly was a memorable evening and would have been even if it weren't for a special occasion.

Basically I could not eat my food. The gazpacho was way too salty. The stuffed flounder with crab was swimming in butter and too salty. They were nice and offered me something else. I ordered a caprese salad with oil and vinegar on the side. Once again a salt bomb and the tomato looked really pathetic. The view was wonderful.

From the moment we arrived downstairs until the time we exited downstairs. A great experience! My daughter was celebrating her 15th birthday and she loved The Chart House experience. She left with personalized menus made just for her. John, our waiter, was pleasant, friendly, and very helpful with our menu selections. He kept us posted on the status of our orders. And made pleasant conversation with our kids. The food was wonderful. Along with our cocktails. I had been to The Tower restaurant once before in high school. But this recent visit was much more enjoyable. We will be returning soon. Excellent! Thank you for making our daughter's birthday so special.

Our waiter, John, was attentive without hovering. He is very knowledgeable of the menu and appreciate his recommendation of the avocado and crab cake stack for our starter - delicious! The stuffed flounder was the best I've ever eaten. The beautiful waterfalls outside and observation tower provided excellent photo opportunities. Chart House made our 39th anniversary memorable. Thank you!

My husband and I dined at The Chart House 11 years ago and loved our experience. We were thrilled to come back to Texas to experience the incredible meal again, but were highly disappointed with our latest experience. Our steak was way over cooked and had zero flavor. I got passed it though in hopes my dessert would be as phenomenal as I remember 11 years ago. We ordered our desserts the same time as we ordered our food because we knew it takes them time to prep. The waiter on top of never filling our drinks, never brought the dessert. We waiting almost an hour to receive the most dry and gross lava cake I have ever had. On top of that, I asked for a coffee while we waited.....it took them nearly 45 minutes to bring the coffee to me. I know people have bad days. I’ve worked in the restaurant business for years, but this was unacceptable. I watched other tables service and it looked like their servers were great! There waters never got empty. So in conclusion, not only was our service bad, our meals and desserts were awful, and we paid nearly $200.00!!!!!! We expected it to be expensive, but we also expected to have a great experience and meal. We will never go back again and I would never recommend this place to anyone!

The food was fantastic, the view spectacular, the wait staff prompt and friendly and the ambiance superb. I have only one recommendation, be mindful of the sun when you go. I went with my mother at 5:30 P.M. so we were getting blinded by the sun everytime we swung around to the west. I recommend going when it's overhead or when it's setting.
