Sustenio - Eilan Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good, prix fixe menu on Valentine’s Day. Had rez, but got seated early, no problem. I had only two issues, our waitress Nancy was very inattentive, had to ask several times for more tea and sweet-n-lows. It took her 10 mins to pick up the payment after she dropped the check off, and she never asked my wife if she wanted another cocktail. Dirty dishes stayed piled in the corner of our table while she socialized with another table she apparently knew. We discovered why, which brings me to issue two, they added a 23% service charge automatically so there was no reason for her to try. I would have given the minimum 15% if I had the chance. She only had 4 tables, and food runners, so that should /could not be her problem. Go some place else for the price, or make sure you don’t get Nancy on a night the service charge is included.
Lets start. It was a late reservation at 9 pm.
There was a few tables filled and a few people on the bar.
We were a party of 4. We got to the restaurant and there was NO host. After a little wait the waiter showed up and show us the table. We ordered 2 appetizers and where great (Ahi tuna and Charcuterie)(GREAT). We had an awesome wine Joseph Phelps Insignia 2014 (GREAT). Someone else brought the bottle and serve us. After that they never returned to refill our glasses (BAD). By that time there was only 2 other tables and 2 guys in the bat. We ordered our dinner because the waiter told us that Kitchen closes at 10 and of course we ordered. We also got another bottle of wine, the same, and they brought a 2008 (GREAT) this time the waiter came back to refill. Dinner was ok, nothing great like the appetizers but the VERY BAD thing was that after the 2 guys left the bar the waiter told us that they were closes and brought us the check. For sure we will not return for dinner. Maybe for appetizers and at the bar. If you want to spend $150 to $200 per person go some place else.
Food executed flawlessly. Fish, venison, lamb all cooked perfectly. Service was crisp and professional. Restaurant was not that crowded on a Saturday night. We felt like we had our own personal kitchen and staff. Campfire dessert was really inventive and very tasty! All-in-all a great find!
Went for dinner with friends. The service was slow, the food was terrible. Two of us had their brisket special. It was dry and tasteless. The salad had very little dressing. Drinks were very expensive. The one saving grace was the wine we ordered. What makes it all the more unacceptable was that the dinner was terribly expensive. Too many other good restaurants in San Antonio to ever go back.
Staff was nice but service was very slow. Could not get writer's attention even when waiving in his direction. I eventually had to flag another waiter to get him. There was a misunderstanding with our order and mine came out wrong (gave me pompano soup with no crab though it was only my husband who is allergic). His entree then came out about 10 mins before mine even though we ordered the exact same thing. Server (not our own) stated he was told to bring first one out at that time as the second would be following shortly. Manager later apologized stating he misunderstood.
Went for my birthday. Rebekah (Bekah) was our waitress and she was outstanding. My meal was not hot but she took it back and got me a fresh, hot replacement. It was incredible - some of the best scallops I’ve ever had. My husband ordered the halibut and although his wasn’t that hot he doesn’t mind. I’m the fussy one. Hot food should be served on hot plates!! I was offered a free dessert and ordered the pecan bread pudding. It was very dry and tough - I shouldn’t complain because it was complimentary butvfeel I should be honest. And they made good on the cold food. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back.
The happy hour shrimp tacos were delicious and I appreciate the kitchen's willingness to grill the shrimp (in lieu of frying them). The grilled oyster appetizer was good but lacked a deep chargrilled flavor that we were anticipating. We also tried the deviled eggs which were "okay". I enjoyed the scallop entree and the accompanying sauce and flavorful veggies. The meat on my husband's brisket entree was largely composed of fat; we brought this to our server's attention and she profusely apologized and immediately requested a replacement from the kitchen which we sincerely appreciated. Our desserts were the superstars of the meal. The churros were surprisingly light (and not at all greasy!) and had a beautiful, nostalgic cinnamon donut flavor. It was served with horchata ice cream that could have used a bit more cinnamon. The pecan pie bread pudding had a beautiful texture and flavor (perhaps one of the best bread puddings that I have sampled) as did the ice cream with which it was served. I highly recommend both of these desserts.
My wife and I have been frequent customers over the years at the wonderful Sunday Brunch available at Sustenio. We have always found the food to be very good and the offering to be a good value. When we came here as "regulars" this weekend we were very surprised to find, after we had eaten, that the price of the brunch had increased from $25 to nearly $40 since our last visit, some three or four months ago. The food was, admittedly, even better than usual, but the fact remains that an increase of over 50% is a bit much. Since a buffet brunch is a fixed-price affair, the price should be made clear to all clients in advance in a situation where there has been a recent and significant increase in the normal price. This was not the case. I'm afraid that this experience has discouraged us from returning in the future.
Loved the menu. Loved the service. Loved the food. Loved the prices. Very very impressed. The halibut with cheddar jalapeño grits and sautéed veggies was absolutely perfect. The ambitious dessert selection “Smoke” got a 50/50 review at the table, but everything else was off the charts.
I took my best friend for her Birthday dinner. Everything was perfect from the vallet service at the water fountain, the service provided by our waiter guy from Hawaii, the wine and appetizer menu selection and the requested/customized main course that was cooked for perfection by Chef Danny. We had a great time talking to our server and Chef Danny. The athmosphere is quite, relaxing and upscale which is what we wanted. The price is reasonable. The restaurant is clean and very welcoming the moment we entered the restaurant. The employees look happy and love their job. We can tell from their smile. Thank you for providing excellent service.
We were so impressed with this restaurant at multiple levels. New to San Antonio so first time guest. The servicer was outstanding - attentive but not overbearing; cordial and extremely professional in his demeanor. The appetizer of parmesan cheese crusted oysters were excellent as were the entrees - brisket (for hubs) and poblano soup and spicy shrimp tacos (for me). The bread pudding was a great choice for ending this beautifully presented meal. Hats off to the chef and entire staff. We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.
I was disappointed that I was NOT acknowledged when I arrived for my reservation. Had to go to the bar to ask! The question is why? Should the person responsible to hosting been aware of the reservations for the evening and been present and waiting for patrons?
The young waiter...Dominic was terrific and very professional.
