Italian
Guillermo's Restaurant is an eclectic restaurant located in the business district of San Antonio near the Museum Reach River walk area. We serve lunch and dinner. Counter service is from 11 am until 2 pm M-F and waiter service from 2 pm until closing. Wait service on the weekends. Guillermo's morphs into a relaxed casual five star service restaurant at 5 pm. We serve primarily Italian fare but do offer selected items that would be classified as non - Italian. All of our food attempts to culturally connect to San Antonio. Our environment goal is to be calm and relaxed however our patio is intentionally designed to be more lively with with television and for sporting events and often softer live music. Our wall decorations are intended to highlight our crooked 100 + year old homes significance and works of local artist. Greenery and plants are also a big part in creating a positive environment.

Brought a few first timers with my group of eight. They were thrilled with the quality of the food. My friends who were repeat, always enjoy coming back.

Our server was very attentive.

Highly recommend Guillermo’s. It is my favorite Italian Restaurant. I travel over 20 miles, just to eat here

1/2 hour before we arrived for our 4PM reservation, we got an open table email that indicated Guillermo's said that we didn't show up for our reservation. We replied to Open-Table that this was a mistake since it was only 3:30PM. Upon arrival at 4PM, Guillermo's had no reservation for us. They apparently don't like to do business with 3rd party booking firms and had canceled our Open-Table reservation. We found the food and drinks to be expensive. The round wheel of chopped shrimp with bacon was like eating fatty salty pork belly.

The food was excellent, they do need a few "bigger" tables for larger parties, but the overall experience was great!

Good food, reasonable prices and the service was good. The waitstaff was friendly. Adequate free parking. We made reservations for Saturday evening. We are happy we did. It was busy and we were seated promptly. Another nice choice in the downtown area to choose from. We will be back.

Not the usual service or dining experience that I am used to at Guillermo’s. Very disappointing. Next time we will choose a different restaurant.

We were having a “sisters lunch” and I was hoping for a somewhat more elegant setting. The furnishings and place settings were pretty rustic. The table cloth was paper. So I was disappointed. The food and service was great but I just thought the restaurant would be a little more special.

I love this place and have gone there four times so far. Each time I go, I try something different and have yet to be disappointed. We went for my wife's birthday and had a great time! I highly recommend their Sangria and Calzones (but everything on the menu is amazing)!

Great service, food and ambiance. If you like a spicy dish, try the chef rava. A healthy amount of shrimp in a taco (or in a sandwich if you prefer).

Everything was good except as the dining room filled it got a little warm and made it uncomfortable so we cut our stay a little short, we didn't get a chance to finish our bottle of wine.

My wife ordered the wings and the green salad. Wings were very good and I kept stealing her salad as it was rather enjoyable and I am not much of a fan of Italian dressing but I kept eating it. I ordered the Margarita Pizza and it was very good. My son received a kids pizza which was excellent - soft crust and easy for a 2.5 year old to enjoy. He liked it.

We enjoyed our visit, but I would suggest more attention to coursing the dinner. The entrees came out before even half our salads and appetizers were eaten.

Service was slow & the waiter did not take away our finished salad plates. We had to ask for utensils. Dinner was not brought out together which left some in our party with cold dinner by the time everyone was served.

Great parking behind the restaurant. It was a bit confusing finding the hostess stand as you have to navigate the back patio first and find the front entrance. The waiter was very polite and knowledgable but slow service. After placing our order we didn't see him again until we had nearly finished our food. My husband wanted to order another beer but didn't get the chance until we were nearly finished with the meal. Food was excellent. My husband had the sausage and pepperoni lasagna, and I had a wrap. Both were great and we were served tasty salads to start. We would recommend this restaurant.
