Whiskey Cake - San Antonio
The large central bar pays homage to great whiskeys with an expansive list of variations. A menu of cocktails features creative concoctions of local spirits with fresh ingredients, evocative of beverages served at a pre-prohibition bar experience.
The contemporary design of reclaimed architectural elements creates an environment that is comfortable and inviting, an ideal spot for dinner after a long workday or a lazy brunch on the weekends.
Whiskey Cake was very accommodating to my husband and I for a 3-year anniversary dinner. They had us sitting in a corner of the restaurant and a cute secluded area. Our waiter wasn't the most amazing... But All Is forgiven because the manager was the best! Sarah helped us out with recommendations on food, drinks, and places to go after our dinner because we don't frequent la cantera very often. I definitely recommend whiskey cake! You must get the whiskey cake for dessert!
Everything was great. When I did the reservation I wrote that it was my birthday and I didn't receive a cake or a congratulations
Love, love, love!! Brunch is excellent
Table seating was great and food was amazing
Great place for a special occasion dinner. Warm ambience with lovely views, inside and out. Original recipes and fresh ingredients, exceptionally prepared. A very memorable evening! :)
Wonderful venue for special events. The Bourbon collection was awesomely presented. The Texas flight I had was great!
Visited with coworkers during lunch on a Wednesday. It wasn’t too crowded like it can be during the evening and weekends. They were able to split the bill and as always food and service were perfect!!
Honestly, our server was odd. Initially we had a gentleman who was clearly more interested in upselling us. Then a very nice lady took over for the middle of our service. That was honestly the best part.
My wife’s food was not correct and my burger was cold. Totally not up to par for our usual Whiskey Cake experiences, which was a total bummer.
It was absolutely fantastic as always and our waitress went above and beyond for us! We will be back for sure!
Great service as always
Only thing that was disappointing was we did not get our appetizer, therefore had to cancel that. Other than that, food is excellent.
Great service and great food
We reserved our table several days in advance and were put at a high top with highly uncomfortable chairs in the loud bar area. We could not communicate with out raising our voices.
Our food took over an hour to be served after placing our order. We ordered 3 salads and 2 grilled entrees. The amount of meat on the plate was not worth the price.
Our server was very nice and came by several times to let us know our food would be out very shortly. However, that was not true but not her fault. She did comp us a whiskey cake but only one for a table of 5.
I have dined at this establishment a number of times but this was by far the best. By far.
Great food and service!
Mia was our server. She was excellent. She offered great suggestions and they were delicious. The pimento cheese was to die for. Great place with local food. I would highly recommend it.
What an amazing experience!!! The staff, food and drinks were ALL outstanding! And the Whiskey Cake is absolutely to die for!
My friends loved it we had a great time our server bill was outstanding humorous and kind.
Food was great, but duck was unevenly cooked. Service was amazing and the general manager casey really cares about his customers.
Second visit here in the last year- first time was brunch this time we tried dinner. The food is pretty good in general but nothing I’ve tasted here really stands out from the crowd- except the namesake whiskey cake which is very tasty. The cocktails always take forever. We ordered drinks about 5 minutes before we placed the appetizer order and the food still came out before the cocktails.
I’ve come here numerous times and I’m always so happy I do. Our waiter was awesome. The drinks were fantastic. The food was delicious. I just love this place every time.
The entree I got should have been listed in the salads. It was still good.
Amazing restaurant and staff!
Place is amazing and the whiskey cake is awesome. You need to visit this place.
Our waiter was great! And when we got there he told us it was ladies night and wine was half off! Wow!!! All in all a great experience!
The food and ambiance was amazing. The waiter we had was absolutely terrible and took advantage of our patience. The food server was great tho.
We really enjoyed our Sunday brunch with great friends. Our server, Nina, was so helpful and kind. And the food was amazing! :)
Great place for brunch! Kids loved it too. Bloody Mary bar was unique and fun!
Definite decline in food quality.
All food arrived at the table very cold and very salty
Sam, I am sorry this happened and your experience was so poor. I would love to make this right and show you how much better we normally are. I have sent you a direct message to discuss this further. Thank you and again I apologize.
We had the worst experience at whiskey cake. Let's start with out waitress bringing water and taking our order 30 mins after we were seated. Then the appetizer and kids meal arriving probably an additional 20 mins after that. The table.next to us got their appetizers and meal before us...and they were seated and ordered after us. Then our meals came out...and they forgot a salad and brought an extra kids meal. They didnt even apologize for comp us any food. Definitely not going back.
Excellent food! Only issue we had was the music which was on the very loud side. Otherwise, great meal!
The Whiskey Cake is great
This was my first time and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is gorgeous, a southern chic feel to it. My friend and I ordered appetizers and shared them and they were delicious! Will definitely be returning.
Great food and great service!
One word: Amazing. Try the whiskey cake and you’ll understand why the place is named after it.
amazingly tasty amazingly tasty amazingly tasty amazingly tasty
Wonderful service, food, and drinks!
Everything was excellent! Great food at reasonable prices. Server was a little over the top fir my preference. We’ll be back!
Not a great visit. They ran out of tall glasses for the Bloody Mary bar. It took a really long time to get our drinks. We ordered the short rib hash to split like we always do and the portion was way smaller than usual. Otherwise good.
