Service was courteous, although not very aware nor attentive. Appetizer arrived with main course. Food was just okay. We had basic dishes, such as pork chops (which were okay), mac and cheese (which was what you'd get at a cafeteria), and a chip-based appetizer. We'd asked the waitress what was on that appetizer, and her description was wrong. Location is great, and the design isn't bad, so there's that.

We’ve eat here before most shows but on this occasion the service missed the bar. Brandy was overextended and needed help keeping up with the number of tables she was assigned.

Very poor experience ! The new décor reminds me of a Denny's rather than the grand old Gunter Hotel it's located inside (no offense to Denny's). I thought the $26 menu price for a genuine 12oz Akaushi ribeye to be amazing. Unfortunately I found it to be fraudulent. I have eaten various types of Wagyu beef all over the world and this was either NOT Akaushi or it was by far the singularly worst cut of this beef I've ever experienced. PLUS, it was WAY overcooked. Additionally, the advertised side dish of asparagus was not the classic spears but was instead a hash of small stalk pieces sautéed with corn and carrots Southwest style (with chili powder and/or cayenne and cumin). To be fare, while this was not what I expected, it was the best thing on the plate. My wife had the Gulf Shrimp + Gristmill Cheese Grits. It was also VERY poor ! Despite costing over $20 it only had 4 pan sautéed shrimp. I've had more shrimp on a shrimp cocktail! And while it was not advertised as "Carolina style" shrimp and grits (we've lived in the Carolinas and love real Shrimp + Grits) this was definitely NOT that. In fact, these weren't grits at all. rather than true hominy grits this appeared to be yellow corn polenta mixed with creamed corn; extremely sweet creamed corn! My wife took one bite and pushed it away. So I tried it and wholeheartedly agreed, it was horrible! We will NEVER eat here again and will recommend to family and friends that they stay clear of this restaurant.

The restaurant is very close to The Majestic, so would be a great place to eat before or after the theatre, but we were staying in the hotel and just went for dessert. The chocolate cake and the cheesecake were both excellent.

Food not great, charcuterie board seemed like it had been sitting under Saran Wrap in fridge for a few days, salmon was extra fishy, risotto tasted like rice-a-roni. Brussels sprouts were under cooked not charred like described, steak was too fatty for small portion.

Ok food, nothing stood out. Full bar with decent drinks. Typical Riverwalk service - pleasant but not particularly attentive. More geared for tourists the staff will not meet again rather than a good place for locals to go regularly.

If you're in San Antonio, you should give them a try.

Service could’ve been more prompt. Not very busy so expected more attentiveness. Food was mediocre for the price. Will try it again to see if it’s any better. I believe in second chances

The food was so good. I had the poblano soup and the cobb salad. Excellent. You definitely can share the salads with a friend. They are healthy portions. My friend had the flat bread pizza and loved it as well as the chef salad. The wine prices for a glass are the best in downtown. It was a little disconcerting to have reservations, be seated and then have someone just come sit at the table behind you just by themselves. It was obvious they were not seated by the staff and then they were waited on first. Since there are two entrances it might need to have the sign that is obviously by the front door a little bigger explaining to someone to go to the other entrance to be seated.

We had to wait for 30 minutes and cant take our order until it is 5pm. That's when dinner is served. I find this ridiculous. They could have taken my order and advise me that they wont serve till 5, I would have been ok with that or even after 5 granting that they have to prepare the food. I was fine this time because we got there early before the show but I think it was an inconvenience. The service was ok nothing spectacular and our server wasnt very attentive nor friendly. My Dad's dinner came in late although the someone came over and apologized. I think they should advised us that there will be a delay ahead of time and not after they delivered the food for everyone leaving Dad with no food to eat.

Went for dinner before the theater, then walked around town. Service was good, food was mediocre at best. Decided to stop back in before the show for a couple of beers since it was across the street from the theater. Bar was about 1/2 full. Guy bartender was unloading beer & wine into the coolers and only waited on what appeared to be his friends. Girl bartender completely ignored us. Finally, after 15 minutes, caught the guy on the way by and asked for 2 beers. He grunted and kept walking. About 5 minutes later he came back over and said "...it's obvious we're busy and I'll get to you when I can..." This was 20 minutes in so we left. I have never felt discriminated against in San Antonio, but this is the first! Needless to say, we'll never be back!

Overall great experience having dinner there before enjoying The Sound of Music at the Majestic. The only real knock was the proximity of tables is kind of close, and we happened to have a loud, gossipy person at the table beside us. So we now know about her siblings, co-workers, and anyone else she had scoop on. But the cheese and fruit plate was great, and we really enjoyed our entrees - shrimp with grits and the sriracha flatbread.

We went for Restaurant Week dinner. We both ordered the lamb. A different waitress brought us our entree - which wasn't what we had ordered. This wrong item looked and smelled amazing, but it wasn't what we had ordered. She immediately apologized and took that away and asked what we had ordered. Within just a few minutes the lamb arrived. It definitely looked and tasted reheated. And, the lamb was not medallions as advertised. It was cut with the grain, rather than against the grain. It was tasty, but the sides were not totally hot. We were disappointed by the lamb and sides. The chocolate bundt cake dessert was extremely dry. Even with a sauce, it was tough to get down without drinking something. They were fair and took 25% off our bill without us asking.
The next day, we went for the dish they had accidentally served to us. It was delicious - papperdelle pasta with clams. At lunch, the strawberry shortcake was very good.
The service was very good both days, except for getting the wrong entree to our table.
I'd eat there again.

Service was non-existent. The person who originally took my order basically disappeared. My first glass of tea was delivered by a manager, and another manager took care of other needs. Perhaps this waitperson should decide on whether they want to really be one.

Had Majestic Theatre tickets and wanted a light, quick dinner prior to show. This was a really nice find. Good selection of fresh, well prepared options. Nice wines by-the-glass. Clean, good atmosphere, servers and management were friendly, accommodating. They asked if we were going to theatre and made sure our food order and check were promptly delivered.
Will definitely return here when attending Majestic again soon.

Big disappointment. Read article about this restaurant being one of five up and coming foodie places and was anxious to check it out. When we arrived and clearly did not need reservations, we should have known something wasn't right. Food presentation was nice but the fried chicken and shrimp and grits were both cold. Never saw waiter again until we finally had gone ahead and eaten. Then waited 30 minutes for check.

Small menu, fresh-focused. Can't speak for brunch or late-night. It's in the Sheraton, so I'd hope they were open late. Basic wine list. Our server was new, so a little wobbly, but we got everything as ordered. Staff seemed very attentive to the patrons who were there and trying to make a start time at the Majestic. My dining companion and I were not under time constraints and enjoyed a leisurely meal. The arepas with smoked pork were crisp and light. And my bistro steak could have been cut with a fork, accompanied by perfectly crisp/tender asparagus. Dessert cannoli shell was a little hard and therefore difficult to share, but the chocolate creme filling almost made up for it. 2-tops are a little tight, but the space is bright and welcoming and a nice choice for a weeknight downtown.

We go to the Majestic regularly and look for restaurants that are walking distance. The Market is convenient and has a theater menu that will ensure you make your show on time. The menu is varied enough to cover a variety of tastes. Service was very good and this last visit we had a nice table that let us look out on Houston Street. Very nice!

We had to wait over 20 min for valet parking, but the hostess stamped our ticket so we didn't have to pay the normal $10-20 to park elsewhere downtown. Nice ambiance (unfortunately too cold and raining to sit outside ), good service, and fair pricing for the dinner. Somewhat disappointed that they did not offer the full dinner menu that night. It was a fixed price, appetizer, main course and desert. 3 choices for each. Good wine selection. Just a note. .this across the street from the Majestic Theater so it's very handy for the Broadway shows, concerts, etc. There is also a late night bar inside the hotel beside the restaurant so you have a nice place to wait out the traffic leaving the theatre.

Popped in for a quick lunch. Cute atmosphere. Service was terrible. Crab cakes were good. Fried chicken was underseasoned, bone-in and covered in gravy which made the skin mostly soggy and very hard to eat. Flat-bread smores was a cool concept but the bread itself needed to be cooked more.

I ordered the caprese salad which, while good, had been downsized from the last time I was at the restaurant a month or so ago. At that time, the salad consisted of 5 or 6 large tomato slices with the same size mozzarella slices. This time I got 3 slices of each and the rest of the plate was filled with greens, definitely a disappointment. It certainly did not fill me up! That being said, what I did get was very good and the service was excellent.

Standard stop for us before shows at the Majestic right across the street. Fresh food, prepared with care without the ever-so-present price gouging that goes on in area restaurants. Would like a larger wine selection and an option to order off the drink menu at Bar 414 (also located in the Sheraton Gunter) would put M.O.H. in a class by itself compared to area dining locations and options.
