It was a Sunday night dinner with my wife and I and we were visiting from out of town. After sitting down and getting a drink the steak options came over. Generally speaking I felt like I was being up sold the entire way. We had the Tuna Sashimi and it was good but too heavily spiced on the crust. The Cesar was good but dressing felt more like a Thousand Island dressing. We had a grass-fed steak that was perfectly cooked but under salted. Overall a good meal but not great especially for the price.

My wife and I decided to drive in from Houston to have dinner at Bohanan's for the Marine Corps Birthday, and it did not disappoint. We were greeted at the door by everyone who worked there, and as we were on-time for our reservation, we were promptly seated. Once at our seats, we were treated to a bread and pickled sweet jalapeno and cream cheese (I think) appetizer followed by what has to be some of the best restaurant bread I've had. We ordered the Fois Gras appetizer to share, and it was nothing short of perfection. They serve theirs on a sort of French bread, and while I would have thought this was an odd pairing, it was utterly amazing. The Fois Gras was as tender as you would expect, and melted in our mouths. My wife and I ordered the Chateaubriand, and as we've had Chateaubriand at many other places, we had high hopes. Once again, Bohanan's didn't disappoint. To the contrary, they excelled, as the cut of meat was likely the most tender my wife and I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection, and the asparagus and creamed potato sides were a delicious compliment to the centerpiece. For dessert, my wife and I had the Cherries Jubilee which was also stellar. From the service, the ambiance, the food, and the presentation, everything was perfect. I couldn't have crafted up a better dinner in my dreams. If you have the chance to eat here, do so. You won't be disappointed. As a bonus, on our way out, we stopped downstairs in their bar to dance a little bit to the live music. Everyone was super-friendly, attentive, and my wife and I were made to feel special. We will definitely be back!

Food was great as always, but our service was not quite up to usual standard. Felt our waiter either had too many tables or just never got interested in serving us.. we were a table of ladies so of course ate lighter than some but that should not be how we are slow served!
Had wanted dessert but no time in the end since we were going to the theatre which waiter knew!

It was fantastic as usual. The food was outstanding, cooked steaks exactly as we asked. The fact that the steaks come from Allen Bros. makes them better. They have the best meat and I personally buy steaks from them. The only thing I have to say about Bohanan's that would be a little detrimental is it needs just a little more light. It's hard to see where you are walking.

The food cannot be beat in San Antonio.

I eat here a lot. The food is always outstanding. You know how you say "I can make a better steak at home', well your going to have a hard time beating theirs. I had the 11oz filet. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare and was fork tender. My wife had the Parmesan Crusted Snapper. The fish was very fresh and tasted delicious. I've never had a bad meal here. The ambiance is great and the waitstaff is outstanding. Bohanan's reminds you of those nice white tablecloth restaurants in New Orleans. I highly recommend going here.

As always Bohanan's excels in the total experience of fine dining. Food, service, ambience are all first class and deserving of the national acclaim they have received.
Our group could not quit raving about the fine dinner we had. It capped off a long reunion weekend and will certainly be talked about in years to come.

We always go to Bohanon's for every special occasion. Normally they are the best in the business. Certainly the best in San Antonio. From food, service, and wine selections. They were totally off their game last Wednesday night. Fortunately, my Dad (his 87th birthday celebration dinner) really did not notice; but it was glaring to my Mother and my wife. Our meals were not "Bohanon" level and the service was horrendous.

The saving grace was a busboy who helped me get my Dad, who is disabled, downstairs and into the car. Overall, Mark would not have been pleased.

There is not a single thing I would change about our evening at Bohanan’s - absolutely nothing. Look at their menu online, it is all delicious. I have dined at five star restaurants - including top steakhouses, all over the country and I will put Bohanan’s right up there at the top of the list. We were in town on business, which is how we came to dine there, but we will be driving down from Dallas to dine there again. It was that good. I have had steak from American raised Wagyu on a number of occasions, but the evening we were at Bohanan’s, they were offering Japanese raised Wagyu in the true Kobe style. My husband had the IGA ribeye, while I had the SAGA petite ribeye. I’m not sure we can ever go back to “regular” steak again. AMAZING! These steaks were not on the menu, so when our server showed us the steak selection, we immediately selected these. If you are celebrating any type of event, be sure to include it in the comments section of your OpenTable reservation. Bohanan’s actually takes note of this and makes it special. Be sure to try the candied jalapeños over whipped cream cheese they bring to begin. It’s a house specialty, and for good reason.

I've visited this restaurant before. The good is excellent and the service is as well. The downstairs bar experience is not a friendly one. Skip the bar and take a deep breath when dealing with the hostess stand. Once you get past it, your dining experience is enhanced. Bring back the rose petals in the ladies room!

It had been a few years since I was at Bohanan's. My first experience was wonderful, great food, the best service, and wonderful atmosphere. And my most recent trip was no different. John, Andrew & Rich took care of our party of 3 while we were there, and they did an outstanding job. Andrew was training, and Rich taught him a thing or two along the way. We had a NY Strip, Ribeye and the Hawaiian Tuna, all were done just right, and tasted wonderful. The sides we picked were the Lobster Corn, OMG so good, the Truffle Fries, which are to die for, really! We also ordered the Wild Rice Pancakes, they were interesting, and we also had the Wild Rice, which was amazing. Andrew made our Banana's Foster at the table, and it was delicious! This is where Rich passed along some experience to Andrew, showing him the finer way to caramelize the sugars for the topping. Its one of my favorites and they rocked it!

Our bill, with a modest bottle of wine and gratuity was $460. Split 3 ways, its no cheap dinner, but not ridiculous, either.

I can't wait til next time!! =)

Bohanan's is my favorite in San Antonio for great steaks and attentive service without being obsequious. It's more expensive than average, but the service and the food make the price more acceptable. Over the years when a special occasion or, for that matter, a whim and a yearning for a good steak hits me, Bohanan's is my place. It's a consistently good experience. This visit my companion and I were seated in the section located west of the main dining room and overlooking the length of the courtyard toward Houston Street, the ambient noise from other conversations in the room was loud, preventing any quiet conversation and requiring a louder conversational tone, which is a problem that more restaurants seem to share these days. On my next visit, I'll ask for a quieter location, but I will be back.

Service is impeccable! On a business trip and dining alone is never fun. They actually paid attention to the reservation for one and sat me at an inconspicuous table overlooking the courtyard that was comfortable for a lone diner. Donald, my server was attentive and beyond professional. I had an excellent meal of chicken and squash. The pecan tarte is a must. Will definitely return for the signature steak when I’m not on an expense account.

My company participated in a Frac Sand conference for 5 days and on 3 occasions invited separate customers to dinner for socializing and furthering out business relation ships. 1 evening we had 2 tables of 7, another we had a group of 10 and a third night we had a private dining room for 10, and a second table for 6 for our own employees. In all cases the "Bohanans Experience" was off the charts and unanimously the the guests raved about the service, food, and overall memorable experience. Thank you to Rick and the staff for taking care of us. Your attention to detail and overall experience our clients received dovetail well with my company "brand" values and was the perfect for the client events.
