Latin / Spanish
Situated in a glass conservatory overlooking the River Walk, Ocho serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night snacks indoors and on our breezeway. Ocho has created a menu rooted in the hotel’s pan-Latin cultural influences from Mexico, Cuba and Texas. The cocktail menu highlights the tequila of the hotel’s San Antonio roots with the rum of its Cuban namesake, with a love for old school recipes and, when the occasion calls, the simple satisfaction an ice cold Michelada. Ocho offers complimentary wifi and serves Stumptown espresso drinks to stay or take away.

The happy hour used to awesome, which is the only reason we would go, but now there is no HH on Fridays. It was hot inside. The server was good though.

The food was amazing! This place is adorable and very close to the main section of the river walk without being in the crowds. I highly recommend the empanadas and the mojitos. Robby was an amazing bar tender. He goes back and forth from the main restaurant upstairs to the Havana Bar downstairs. Which, I also really recommend going downstairs to the bar.

If you think you are making a reservation during restaurant week for lunch, don’t bother. They are only doing restaurant week for dinner even though opentable specifies $15 lunch and allows you to reserve for lunch hours. Everything on the menu is overpriced.

We were in San Antonio from Houston and staying nearby so we decided to check out Ocho! We were there in a Saturday so they were only serving the brunch menu, but were able to bring us chips and guacamole as an appetizer despite not being on the menu! It was a cute atmosphere, drinks were good and so was the service!

The food was really good, but not good enough to be worth sitting through the terrible service and waiting an hour for chips and salsa.

Great service, decent food for the price. Definitely get the horchata creme brûlée! Only downside was the severe setting sun coming through the riverside windows. Would highly recommend for a late dinner closer to or after sunset.

We made our reservation for Ocho based on the very interesting menu and we were not disappointed.
The food was very creative our party of 3 all had a delicious meal. It would be great if they could add some dedicated gluten free options to the menu too. Our server Josh was very attentive and gave us guidance in choosing our dishes. The atmosphere of Ocho is beautiful. It’s inside eating that feels like you’re outside. All windowed with lovely giant chandeliers. We will definitely come back for another meal. P.S. do not skip dessert! Best creme brûlée I’ve had in a very long time.

Waitress was extremely unfriendly! Food took a full hour to come, and dessert another 45 minutes. Waitress stopped by our table maybe 4 times in 2.5 hours - we were there from 7pm until past 9:30pm, with almost no service. Waitress never even asked how food was (was not great) and got very rude, almost ANGRY, when we requested separate tickets - then demanded in a very annoyed manner that we each remind her what we ordered. Never again.

Beautifully unique space. Very welcoming. Our server was very sweet but it seemed they needed help as it grew busier. The manager was very kind and would check on us regularly as well. The fruit plate we ordered was tasty however the fruit began to be warm as it seemed it placed on a hot plate. The cuban dish was fantastic! We enjoyed ourselves but the value of the product didn’t seem to be equal to the pricing provided.

My boyfriend took me for a brunch date cause we were visiting San Antonio, and this place was the best one I’ve ever went with all the best restaurants we tried. This place is romantic, foods are really good! And ofcourse our server, Emily, is such a good sweet one

Everything was delicious! Our waiter was so kind and patient with my nephew who obviously wasn’t sure about the different sides. He brought him a small sample to taste test if he wanted that side with dinner. And there was a little longer wait but the waiter brought us lemonade at no charge and kept us updated on how long. And the wait wasn’t anything too crazy at all!! Loved everything about it!

We spent our anniversary weekend in San Antonio and fell in love with this hidden little dive. It’s everything it claims to be and more! Love the glass walls, turquoise and herringbone patterns! I ordered the Americano Breakfast and it didn’t disappoint. Will be finding an excuse to come back every chance we get.

Lovely restaurant and ambiance. No wait as we were seated immediately. The food was delicious but, because we order seafood dishes, not very filling. We would also do better at planning the time of day to go... Hot food outside under the hot Texas sun can be a bit counterproductive. But you live and you learn. Still would certainly recommend this restaurant as the view to the River Walk was gorgeous compliment to the whole ambiance.
