Cocktail Bar
Our concept has changed from an "Oyster Bar" to a light bites and cocktail venue.

Set atop of the charming Fairmount Hotel, right in the heart of downtown San Antonio and next to the Hemisfair Park, this rooftop offers one of the best views the city has to offer.

Covering the rooftop of the south half of the hotel, which date all the way back to 1906, the Fairmount terrace is a much more new and modern space. Equipped with comfy lounge furniture, as well as a partially-shaded rooftop. Perfect for sipping cocktails while overlooking the park and the San Antonio skyline.

    Basically had the whole rooftop to ourselves going on a weekday date night- well worth it! I'm sure it is an awesome spot on the weekends. Got the ceviche, olives and oyster with champagne!

    Not worth the price. It was boring atmosphere, $20 drinks and very small portioned appetizers. I got the ceviche and it was served in a mini martini glass. We left and went to another spot on the river walk. I understand downtown pricing is like that everywhere, but they didn’t even have music on and the rooftop view was all construction sites.

    The vibe was just right and the service was great. However the menu, which was what we came for, was not the food being offered. The new menu had 5 items not even remotely related to their online menu and the arancini had no flavor at all. We were very disappointed in that but our waitress was very personable and the ambience was great for an anniversary dinner.

    They are "re-doing" their menu and do not offer any sort of meal at the rooftop bar. They offer small appetizer type things but nothing that would satisfy as a meal especially for a 16th anniversary. We ended up going downstairs to Silo and was blown away by the ambiance and service of that location. if evening drinks with a view is all you are after then this may be a place for a drink or two but beware they are very expensive here. 2 drinks with mediocre service ran us $35!!

    Great quiet spot to get some mixed drinks, great wine and oysters. The food menu is limited to higher end appetizers. The Oysters were all very fresh as was the tuna and cheese plate. Huge wine selection as it’s an extension of Silo Fairmount. It’s on the roof of the 4th floor but still great views of the street and a nice skyline. Try to plan to be there at sunset for epic views. We will def return.

    The rooftop location was very nice although a bit windy and cool. The outdoor heater was started and quickly went out and the propane tank was not changed despite the server noticing it and commenting on it. The food was good but very pricey for what we received. The petite seafood platter was pathetic in the lack of seafood. The service was subpar considering there was 1 other table besides ours (2 people) and we finally had to go up to the server at the bar to get and pay for our tab. Very disappointing experience.

    We made reservations for NYE shortly after 9pm. When we sat down our waiter said the kitchen was closed and no longer serving food. Imagine our surprise. I wish their website would have mentioned that before we booked the reservation.

    Loved the historical location and right next door to la villita and the river walk. Also appreciated the complementary valet parking. We were well received in the hotel lobby and escorted by elevator to the rooftop. Nice views but understand that the rooftop is only 4 floors up so you can’t see the city as well as you could from a taller building. We went here because of the menu (we love seafood). We first ordered the chef selection of a dozen oysters and they were excellent, came with all accompaniments and a note identifying the name/location and taste profile of the oysters ( 3 each from 4 different east coast localities). We next ordered the large chilled seafood platter and were not impressed. The smell of the seafood was not fresh (excepting the oysters) and the taste of the shrimp, crab claws and lobster was below average. This was the only reason for my low scores.

    We started with the cheese plate but found a hair in it. Lost our complete appetites and left. Everything else was really nice though (service, ambiance, views, drinks). Really disappointed that it ruined the entire experience especially with the high prices. Would give it another chance if they pay closer attention to the food as it’s being prepared.

    The food was not great. The seafood didn’t seem that fresh The steak tartare had an overpowering smell and wasn’t edible. The service was okay, but I expected better sitting at the bar. Not sure if we’re going back. It was supposed to be an anniversary dinner and we were both disappointed.

    We had a great experience at this 2 San Antonio,s Farirmount restaurants. We started at the Oysterbar in the roof and ended at Silo Prime downstairs. Both were really good in food quality and service. From cocktails to dessert 100/100. Will be a MUST in our next trips to San Antonio.

The rooftop is spacious and beautiful with incredible views of downtown San Antonio. The service was wonderful and our servers were attentive. They brought our food and drinks out quickly. I cant wait to go back and bring friends!
