    Wonderful, creative food! Delicious seasonings and sauces. The chicken fried quail with jalepeno gravy was to die for, appetizer portion lamb chop crusted in pistachio, red snapper entree, and bread and butter were all incredible. The space is quite loud when it's crowded but the noise level became more bearable once a few tables left.

    Some of the best service around. We came here because of the Express News piece. And it lived up to everything. The restaurant is small and intimate. The food is delicious, I could eat the Red Snapper dish everyday.

    The bread opener was a little disappointing. I found it stale .Perhaps my expectations were too high ! Caesar salad was fantastic . Asked for pepper and was given a shaker and the pepper barely came out . Think that caliber of a restaurant should d have a pepper grinder. King Salmon was fabulous and my husband enjoyed his pork chop but would have preferred less salt. Service was timely and efficient . I will definitely return but perhaps bring my own pepper !!

    The hotel is beautiful but was extremely loud. Once we found the restaurant, we were surprised by the setting. It’s was very open, bright and not intimate. We expected a more romantic setting. I had the hen and it was nicely paired with the churro sauce. My husband’s red snapper was fresh but tough. Overall the food was good but not delicious for the pricing.

    Quail appetizer was superb. Steak was cooked perfectly. I think the snapper was over cooked, I would have gone with a smaller fish and the shrimp needed something different… the least favorite item we ordered. Beautiful restaurant, not the best location inside the hotel. Restaurant needs a separate entrance in the hotel. I wish this restaurant was in a free standing building. Great service. The ambiance to get to hotel was questionable and didn’t feel safe.

    It wasn't what we expected. We went for our anniversary and from the pictures from social media it looked like it would be very romantic. It definitely wasn't what we were hoping for but we made the best of it. It was very bright nit dimly lit or intimate.

    We were looking forward to trying something new, but for the price, this was VERY disappointing. The $48 filet was really only 1/2 a fillet cut into strips and smothered in béarnaise sauce. $68 for a New York Strip. You would be better off at a steak house. Odd things like putting a fried egg on top of gumbo. Most people were there for the all you can eat prime rib, so if eating a ton of prime rib is your thing, by all means, come on Wednesday. The staff sort of disappeared toward the end so we were left waiting around to get dessert and the bill. They also don't know the menu as when I ate the salad and said, ooh, these are cornbread croutons, they gave me a look at said they were just bread. (they actually are cornbread croutons per the menu). The decor is lovely, but it's a fancy restaurant and people were there from the hotel in bathing suits which isn't a big deal, but it affects the ambiance when you are dressed up for an expensive dinner.

    The restaurant is aesthetically pleasing but the lights needed to be dimmed for ambiance. The noise level was high which takes away from the ambiance as well. The food was very good and our waiter was fine but the kitchen seemed to be a little slow. We started with the white wings which were tasty. My husband ordered tenderloin and, had he been asked how he’d like it cooked, he would have said medium. It was more rare than he’d prefer but still good. I had the snapper which was delicious. Overall, a nice first experience.

    Very disappointing hard to believe Don Strange would put his name on this. Food was way off, under cooked steak over cooked fish. The side items lacked seasonings. The carrots and desert were good. I would not return or recommend.

    Had a fabulous dinner last night. Got the lamb as an app, which was told it was a take on a whole rack of lamb with a pistachio/Dijon crust, interesting take and loved the Dijon gelato served along side. Finished with a mouth watering Ribeye med Rare and cooked to perfection with a perfect pairing of herb butter and smashed potatoes. Server was extremely welcoming and attentive.

    The tenderloin that they are known had no flavor and they covered it in a flavorless (sweet) jalapeño bournaisse sauce. We subbed the corn pudding for mashed potatoes, and they uncharged $10…without notice and completely unnecessary. The salmon was good and had an Asian flavor profile to it, but then served with a Mediterranean flavored farro that didn’t go together at all. Casamigos tequila is way overpriced at $20. The peach cobbler was really runny and undercooked. Overall we wouldn’t go back, but the service was really good.

    Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service. The food was delicious but I have to say that the Star of the show was the gumbo! We’ve had lots of gumbo, especially in Louisiana but the chef out did herself with this dish, I highly recommend it. The chef also made her way to our table to introduce herself and was very knowledgeable and charming.

    My whole evening at LAZO was unmatched for service and ambiance. The interior of the hotel is stunning and the restaurant itself had a wonderful courtyard view from my table. The jalapeño Bernaise sauce on the filet was mouth watering and the steak was cooked perfectly. Also, the butter that comes with the bread is so good- I am still dreaming about it! Every dish was unique, with a fun southern Texas flair that I haven’t seen at other restaurants around San Antonio. My server, Amanda, was wonderfully welcoming. She had the perfect balance of knowing when to talk and when to let me enjoy the food by myself. Her hospitality made me feel so special. The manager with the mustache (Robert?) was exceptional and remembered my name throughout my dining experience as well. Overall 12/10. I will be back for more incredible food and even better guest service.

    I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who lives in, or is visiting, San Antonio. The gumbo is authentic and hands down the best we have had. It’s packed with flavor and is the perfect way to start off the meal. Our entrees were also amazing - particularly the snapper with corn three ways . We accompanied our meal with drinks and the staff was very attentive and helpful in deciding what to order. Lazo is a must visit for any occasion!

We particularly enjoyed the Lamb Chops and Grilled White Wings! On Wednesday nights the bar adjacent to the restaurant has live music which makes the dining atmosphere simply incredible!

    We are locals to San Antonio and were excited to find a hotspot with such great reviews in our neighborhood. Walking in, there was a live musician at the bar with gripping artwork and ambience all around. The restaurant was slightly bright but otherwise nicely decorated and both the hostess and our waiter, Francisco, were kind and attentive. Then came the ordering. First, they were out of Key ingredients for our first choice of cocktails and appetizers, claiming a busy crowd two days prior. I was excited to order the black and blue tartare which I always order when it is available on a menu. The first bite was overwhelmed by the strong flavors of a mound of whipped Gorgonzola. I scraped off the toppings and was totally underwhelmed by the ground beef patty that remained on my plate. It was completely flavorless and browning from over oxidation. I truly believe they may have stolen some Square patties from Wendy’s and reformed them in a mold. I have never left a restaurant before in my life, but I had to cancel my entrée order and fear I may never be able to eat steak tartare again. The $80 I paid to close out my tab and walk away may be the best money I’ve ever spent. Go, order a bottle of wine, tip Francisco, and definitely eat somewhere else.

    Phenomenal! Cocktails were fresh and unique. Good wine selection too! Started with the lamb chops and the accompanying Dijon gelato blew me away. Had the mixed green salad next. The truffle vinaigrette is outstanding!! Had the red snapper for my entree. It was fresh, perfectly cooked, and had the most amazing, bold cajun style flavors. Will be back soon!

    Margarita with jalapeño tasted like jalapeño juice!! White wings appetizer: bacon not cooked well, cheese cooked out it. Jalapeño just on the tip hanging out , chicken tasted old - seemed like it was cooked ahead and just reheated.beef tenderloin medium rare came out raw - no crust or mesquite flavor, tasted old, corn pudding came out in a cast iron pan and was wrapped up as “it was hot” - it was cold and I could hold the cast iron pan in my hands- the cheese on top was congealed hard. Short ribs tasted burnt and sauce was bitter and hard on top- seemed to be reheated but wasn’t hot … during COVID Don Strange made fabulous meals and I’ve attended several catered events.. this place doesn’t deserve to use his name!!
