Excelente comida y servicio. El tipo de música seria lo único q cambiaría
Amazing. Great new tastes and trys for the adventurous diner
Cosy old fashioned feel with excellent food and service.
a true dinning experience. The food was delicious, freshly prepared & worth every penny.
We really enjoyed this restaurant and our visit to San Antonio. Wait staff was very attentive. Co-owner helped come up with a menu that was dairy free for both of us. Entire meal was created to work around our restrictions. Very nice strawberry, coconut, granola, sorbet dessert! Highly recommended. Thanks!
Absolutely fabulous. We had the 5 course tasting menu and were seriously impressed. From the inventiveness of the tomato and strawberry gazpacho to the perfectly cooked beef and pork with excellently paired wines. Leaving with a taste of pink peppercorn sugar brittle. Great service, ambiance and location. A meal to remember.
Amazing food as always with exceptional service and attention to detail.
Great food, pretty pricey, but I am the frugal one in the family.
The only gripe is the awkwardness of the wait stafff. The restaurant was super quiet and only one other table was occupied when we first arrived (we were eating early). The wait staff seemed to be coming every few minutes to check on us throughout our 2.5 hour dinner (we did the 5 course meal, $75/person). It was awkward and hard to have a normal conversation.
First time there – will definitely be back again. A unique restaurant that has certainly earned its good reputation...
This was experience I have never had just phenomenal. Our server Andrea was just outstanding
Restaurant Gwendolyn serves the most unique presentations. And they are delicious as well. Always love the wine selections chosen by Jenn to go with my dinner.
We decided to sit in the window next to the kitchen so we could watch the chefs cook our food. It was very entertaining and interesting watching them create a delicious dinner before our eyes. The food is wonderful and so is the service. Our favorite restaurant in San Antonio!
Restaurant Gwendolyn is very unique in that they use techniques from years ago. No electric gadgets, including coffee maker! We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine. The staff was formal, but friendly. All of our dishes were excellent/ Even though there were 7 courses, the portions were perfectly sized so it was not too much food.
Never a disappointment. I lived here when it opened and come back whenever I am in town. Food is so thoughtfully put together and wine parings are also done very well. Everything is so fresh. So much fun and makes you feel so fancy no matter if you only brought your jeans on the trip.
First class. Number I in this market for fine dining. We will be back. These folks know what they are doing and we have seen it all.
Always a great experience at Restaurant Gwendolyn. Service, Food, and Quality cannot be surpassed.
One of the best in San Antonio. The rabbit and chickpea pupusa was incredible.
Exquisite Valentine’s Day experience.
Wonderful friendly staff. Fresh, tasty and unique food.
This restaurant is wonderful! Friends and I have been there twice for the 5 course menu prior to the theatre - there is just enough time if you work at it. The 7 course menu requires too much time. We had three of us this trip, which was great because we were able to try everything on the menu. We also added the wine pairings! The appetizer and soup were set and very tasty; we had a choice of salads - although neither truly was a salad but both were delicious; we had all three of the main courses, pork chop, quail, and fish - the quail was delicious, the pork chop perfectly cooked, and the fish had tremendous flavor. We followed the up with three deserts and coffee. You HAVE to get the coffee...what a fantastic meal! Need to go back for the 7 course!
Excellent service and attention to detail
Food tastes were distinct and well pronounced
We had a fantastic experience! Everything was not only delicious but cohesive and felt like an edible art collection. Our server Nick was impeccable and didn't skip a beat. His passion for food and concept of your restaurant really enhancing our dining experience. Thanks again for everything !
Excellent service, excellent bread pudding desert. GIANT cheese and charcuterie- had we known it was that big, we wouldn’t have ordered dinner. Several of the charcuterie items were fantastic (sausage , beef pate, goat cheese, honey,) some were not so much (pickled egg, peach. Dinner was unremarkable in flavor
Though presented beautifully. Biscuits and gravy were good though nothing special. Very expensive for what you get. I probably won’t go back.
Gwendolyn does a good job. Micheal s is a creative and imaginative chef coming u with tobacco ice cream, rosemary sorbet. Great foodie
What an outstanding restaurant! I travel all over the U.S. and to many other countries and restaurant Gwendolyn is simply one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. From the attentive and personalized service to the outstanding tasting menu to the outstanding wine selection (they had my favorite white wine - Spanish Albarino) to the cozy and quiet atmosphere, Restaurant Gwendolyn is a gem. Please order the charcuterie as an appetizer - it is absolutely amazing and I can honestly say I have never had anything like it at any other fine dining establishment. If you only have time for one upscale restaurant in San Antonio, make it Restaurant Gwendolyn. You will not be sorry.
Superb!! Must try
Restaurant Gwendolyn is my favorite restaurant in San Antonio. I have only ordered the tasting menu, which can be hit and miss in terms of personal taste, but never disappoints in presentation, preparation, and taste tantalization. There will be a few you won't like, a few that are good and interesting, and a few that are flat out amazing.
It is not cheap, but it is well worth it. It is definitely an experience. It is a great place for a special occasion. I can't see myself eating the tasting menu more than twice a year, but that's just me. I've visited Gwendolyn 3 different times and enjoyed it every time.
The 5 course will take about 2 hours and the 7 course will take about 3 hours. I suggest the 7 course which is the only one I've had. It ends up being 8-10 courses because the chef has some experiments shared as extra courses. You can add on wine that goes with the courses. I added it for myself and my wife shared my wine. It is a lot of wine for a 7 course meal.
I'm writing this review on my computer. I'll see if I can edit it and upload some photos from my phone.
Visited San Antonio and really enjoyed starting our trip here. Had a great late meal and great service.
Great food. Great service. Pricy meal but great for a special occasion. Wine pairings were in some cases unusual but spot on. Great overall experience!!!!
The 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing was excellent! Attentive service, friendly, not pretentious.
Fantastic food and ambiance.
There were things we liked and some things that were lacking. It is a small space and several of the tables are tiny. So be sure to specify if you will be bothered by a small table. My husband is a big guy..... Some of the courses were to die for - the oyster stew, the rabbit rillades. I would have that oyster stew every day! Some were very good - like the venison and grouper entrees. And some were just ok - the salad course, the shrimp, the beef chimichurri and the desserts. We love to do wine pairings and are glad we did one here - but none of the wines or pairings really wowed me. And, the timing of some of the courses needs to be worked on. Overall it was a good experience and our server was quick to respond when we experienced the lengthy delay before dessert. If you are going to be in San Antonio for any time and have a special occasion it might be worth a visit.
Skilled service, excellent and imaginative dishes, perfect wine pairings.
FANTASTIC in every respect! A true culinary gem in San Antonio.
Oh, wow! We haven't been this entertained by a meal in a very long time. Knowledgeable servers, a unique concept that is expertly delivered and explained. By far the most exquisite and tasty meal in the state of Texas, we have experienced so far. Be prepared to be surprised.
Restaurant Gwendolyn is by far the best fine dining experience in San Antonio. Highly recommend !
I visited with my husband for my birthday. We ordered the 5 courses meal with coffee at the end served with the desert. We had an amazing experience. Food was exquisite! We highly enjoyed the broad variety of flavors and textures throughout the different courses. It was like a party in our mouths at every bite. Coffee was brewed at our table in a fancy coffeemaker. My husband and I really loved the coffee flavor. It makes a true difference when all the ingredients are locally grown. I highly recommend Restaurant Gwendolyn to whoever is looking to have a once in a lifetime experience!
Have dined at RESTAURANT GWENDOLYN since it opened before attending the symphony performance. The welcome from everyone is always very friendly and sincere. My last visit I chose the AFRICAN LAMB CHOP, HARISSA AND COUSCOUS. The flavor was outstanding and expertly paired by Jenn with Copertino Riserva 2008. The biggest surprise was bread pudding with ice cream flambe. The flame added a delicious crust.
ANOTHER MOST REWARDING FOODIE EXPERIENCE AT RESTAURANT GWENDOLYN😀
Excellent creative menu, wonderful service, great food. We had a very fine meal and would highly recommend to all who like good food and service.
Food was beautifully presented and helpful suggestions were made regarding wine. They have a fixe prix menu and a la carte, and they ensure you can get out in time to walk to the symphony or other nearby venues. Excellent service and scenic atmosphere, overlooking the river.
