The restaurant was great overall! We dined as a group of four for a birthday celebration and ate in the outdoor dining area. It had a great environment near the river walk and was nestled between the SAMA and the walking area, so it allowed for good people watching and enjoyment of the nature around us while dining on delicious Italian cuisine!

The service was so bad we had to laugh. A waiter came out more than once and asked at different tables if they had ordered it. Our waiter brought the wrong desert and began to try to convince us it was what we had ordered.... is the wait staff all smoking weed in the back???

Met friends at Tre before a Majestic Theatre performance. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Those who had the Lobster Bisque said it was delicious. I loved my Market Salad , and the Crispy Trout was excellent!

Loved the setting! The patio looking over the river is great!! Prime location!!
The food was awesome!!
The service was good.
It was a special occasion and I had shared this in my reservation on Open Table. Unfortunately, they did not acknowledge the special occasion. I was disappointed in this. However, it really is a great location and good food!!

The atmosphere was nice, our table overlooked the San Antonio River, but no one in our party really liked the food very much. If you want a relaxed setting with good atmosphere for a drinks then I'd say go for it, but if you're looking for really good Italian food I'd have to say try somewhere else.

Having followed Tre to various locations, we are not new to the experience. This location has it all! Great food, wonderful service, and a location and view that are spectacular! After enjoying New Years Eve here we returned later in the week for a casual pizza feast. Both experiences were amazing! The lights on the Museum reach of the river were an added bonus!

Horrible location. Hard to get there. You are a 10 minutes minimum walking through a rougher part of downtown/river at night.

All of our wives were in heels walking on crushed granite walkway with no path lights on a rough surface. Had it been raining the place is virtually inaccessible.

Much of food was so over salted it was inedible. There’s only only bathroom inside so if you can’t wait there’s more outside. Outside!

The kitchen venting seems inadequate so be prepared to depart smelling like your over salted food.

We won’t be back until they solve the access problem. It seems a golf cart and valet parking would solve this problem. The lack of proper indoor facilities will require something more substantial.

My boyfriend and I live across the river at River House and have been eyeing this restaurant since it opened. We finally got the opportunity to go try it out. Our waiter was a bit condescending from the start. I felt like I was being judged for not being educated enough on wine and we were looked down on for not ordering enough food. We ended up spending quite a bit of money and ordered a salad, an entree, an extra side, a dessert, and a bottle of wine. I'm not sure if he thought he wasn't going to get enough of a tip or what.

Besides that, the food was absolutely amazing. Every single thing we ordered was great. The salad had just enough bitter, sweet, and nutty notes. The crispy skin fish was perfectly seasoned and the risotto was so creamy and wonderful. The dessert we chose was the milk chocolate budino with salted caramel mascarpone mousse. Wow.

Overall, we enjoyed our experience. However, I wish we had been treated a little bit better while there.

Tre Trattoria’s new location is great for the SA Art Museum. The outdoor dining area is cozy and sits above the San Antonio River. The indoors dining has a rustic feel to it. The lunch wine list is somewhat limited. The meals we had were delicious. The entry path from the street is questionable. There may be a second entry point, but we didn’t see one. The parking for Tre Trattoria is a pot-holed, muddy parking lot located across the street from the museum. The dirt path from the street to the restaurant was muddy the day we were there and would be difficult for a disabled patron to navigate or anyone wearing nice shoes. We did not see any Handicapped parking. You have to cross the street to get to the dirt path leading to the restaurant. Traffic travels at a relatively high rate of speed, dangerous for a disabled person or anyone crossing the street after dark. The signage to the front door of the restaurant needs improvement. Coming from the dirt path, there is nothing to indicate where the restaurant entrance is located, so we tried what appeared to be entryways until we walked around the building and found the patio entrance. Perhaps Tre Trattoria’s management is already working the logistical issues mentioned above.

We attended the New Year's Eve dinner which was a preset menu with 3 choices for each of 5 coures. We felt it was quite expensive but for New Year's Eve decided to splurge. Everything was excellent with the exception of the lobster bisque which was good but nothing exceptional. Our overall impression was that of way too much food. If we are ever in town again we would love to come back and try the regular menu which we were told is excellent.

We were looking forward to this trip but were a bit nervous about walking to the restaurant from the parking lot, it was cold, dark and rainy and the museum was already closed so we had to find our way around the outside, not a soul in site and very little signage or direction. Once we made it to the practically hidden entrance, we were promptly seated not more than ten feet away from the door, not sure why we needed a reservation for that. We ordered the Mozzarella with buttered bread to start and were not impressed, the cheese was bland and any of its flavor was overwhelmed by the buttered bread. I think this set the tone for the rest of the meal, the Cesar salad was OK but not great. My spaghetti was over cooked and while the sauce was tasty there wasn't enough to overcome the bland meatballs. My wife enjoyed her Bollenese but overall the experience left is feeling unimpressed and over charged.

The food we ordered was absolutely outstanding. The service was just so so. We have been there before and the food choices we made were outstanding, like this time, and the service then was very good. The deviled eggs are wonderful and we enjoyed the beet salad too. We also had the charcuterie tray which was delicious too. Our entrees were phenomenal.

We sat out on the beautiful patio, but the exhaust fan from the kitchen was blowing out directly towards us, which was rather unpleasant.

Server never returned to check on us after our meals were served other than to deliver the check.

I’ve been several times to the restaurant and never experienced less than stellar service, so I’ll chalk it up as an “off night”.

Though the mains on the menu are somewhat limited (only three really). I can attest to the trout being always stellar. The caprese salad was delicious as were the remaining salad, and the seasonal starter with brocollini, asparagus, goat cheese and marcona almonds was perfectly executed. The only outlier was the steamed artichoke which was a bit over salted, but honestly, it was cooked to perfection and the dipping sauce was outstanding. Some restaurants are hit and miss, but every time we've been to Tre at SAMA it's been a big hit. Good news is that even though it's not that easy to get to, it's busy.

On our first visit to Tre Trattoria we were delightfully surprised. Our food was so good , both my husband and I seriously considering licking our plates. Two different desserts at the table disappeared quickly with appreciative murmurs all the way.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon but will definitely come back for an evening dinner experience.

It was a little too chilly for us to eat outside, but the outside area looks down on the San Antonio River. Lovely!
