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.
Typically a favorite, I was disappointed with yesterday’s experience for our graduation celebration. Service was less than acceptable, server forgot a few entrees, glasses of wine took over 30 minutes each time ordered and to top things off the AC was broken. They were off their game last night but I’m hopeful it’s not a trend.
Service was super slow and it wasn’t even busy
Busier than usual but still one of the, "Go to," places for us. Loved the food and drinks. Everything from the kitchen and bar was on point. Always a great experience and this was no different.
All was good. Whiskey cake was dry and a little burned but other than that good.
Food was delicious and service very good. We were able to get a last minute reservation event on Mother's day and really appreciated that. Only complaint was that the noise level in the restaurant was too loud.
Thank you SJ.
Food was very good. Service was great.
Thank you George. Glad to hear that the service was great. We look forward to having you back in soon.
Thank you Jim. Glad you had a great experience on Sunday.
Food was outstanding as usual. Very busy on Mothers Day so a little noisy but still a great place to be with family.
Thank you Connie for the Great review
I LOVE Whiskey Cake! The menu is refreshingly unusual - and absolutely delicious! 6 of us went for Mother's Day lunch... it was INSANELY busy and parking was ridiculous, but oh, it was so worth it! I made reservations wayyyy in advance, so we didn't have to wait for a table... after ordering, it did take quite a while for our meals to arrive - but, it was Mother's Day and crazy busy, and...we were happy to be there, so we all just rolled with it! Several of us had the OMG Burger (Onions, Mushrooms & Goodness!) - sooo good! We shared a big piece of Whiskey Cake for dessert - it NEVER disappoints & I ALWAYS wish I could lick the plate! (honestly!) Most of us don't drink alcohol, so I can't tell you about the bar -- it looks wonderful, though!
Can't wait to go back!
I just revised the "SERVICE" rating to 5 stars... our server really was exceptional & took excellent care of us. I'm sure Mother's Day was one of the busiest days of the year for this establishment -- and they did GREAT, considering how busy it was!
Thank you for the 5 stars. I would like to hear more about the 3 star service in order to coach my team on improvement. I have sent you my contact information in a direct message.
Receiving food after ordering took too long. While we were not in a hurry we spent 2+ hours there to complete our meal, pay and leave.
We had their Chicken & Waffles and a drink before the meal.
I am sorry about the timing of your meal on Sunday. I sent you a direct message to discuss this further.
Our waitress was fantastic! Super great fried green tomatoes! And the cocktails were pretty good too;)
Thank you for such a great review. We look forward to having you back very soon.
Was really good. Service was very good food great.
Thank you Pat. Glad you enjoyed everything.
Went for Mothers Day. Seated right away. Food took 35minutes after order. My sons burger did not come out with everyone elses food. Waited 10 more minutes. Manager did comp the burger, right thing to do. Very good food.
Thank you Jared. Sorry about the miss on the timing. We hope to have you back soon and give you a much more timely experience.
The food is always good and easy parking at the Rim.
Sadly I don’t remember my server’s name but I had an exceptional service and a great time with my family due to him. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. Keep it up!
Great news Daniel. Please let me know if their name ever comes to you. Look forward to having you back in.
The serving sizes were not what we’ve experienced in the past (spoonful of grits). Subpar service from
Wait staff...and it wasn’t even that busy. This is the first poor experience I’ve had and I hope it’s the last
I and sorry the the service was so poor on this visit. I have sent you a direct message to discuss this further. Thank you
Have had better experiences there.
Slow service. Not complete service. Food order was incorrect.
Super busy day. They ran out of French Presses and mugs so we had to wait for coffee. Finally got our coffee and had to use paper cups because they were still out of mugs. Waiter was great. Has a reservation for 11:15 but seating was delayed due to “slow busser” till 11:30.
Food was good as always but a little slow today.
I am so sorry we ran out of supplies and were a bit slower then normal with the service on Saturday. I have taken steps to correct some of the misses and look forward to showing you a better experience on your next visit.
We had a pretty large group go to brunch and everyone was raving about their food. I liked that we never felt rushed and the entire waitstaff was accommodating. We had to ask a few times for things we had already asked for but that is to be expected when you have such a large group. I was a little disappointed that they were out of a lot of juices they normally have available. Overall, it was a great experience.
Thank you Sara. I am sorry we were out of some juices at the time of your visit. I will follow up with my beverage team directly on where we went wrong here.
Great food, drinks & service! I love the ambiance and decor.
Amazing food, service and environment!!! The chicken melt was exquisite!!! The drinks were perfectly delicious and I recommend the habanero margarita!!! And lastly the Whiskey Cake was to die for!!! Rich, creamy and delicious!!!
It was great all around.
Was seated right at the time of the reservation on Saturday evening. Very lively, tons of people, could be difficult to hear conversation but fun nonetheless. Everything we ordered was amazing! Guava gimlets, omg, ordered a few of those....! The chicken and cheese melt, delish! And ended with the whiskey cake dessert, which was sweet and rich! Will be coming back!
Love the place! Delicious!!
Fantastic news. Thank you for a great review.
The only downside was when we ask the hostess not to place a candle on our table due to our small child and she ignored us. Our server was amazing and the food was phenomenal. After dinner we sat by the fire in little swings. Perfect place to go and relax.
Great place, great food and a great vibe. Would really recommend for a anniversary or special event.
There were a lot of Flies in the restaurant where we sat. really distracted from the dining experience. We went with a group of 11 people and no one raved about wanting to go back. The Strawberry shortcake that was ordered by everyone was left on the plate and not eaten. The Whiskey Cake desert was very good
The yard chicken and double burger were great... and of course... would not miss the Whiskey Cake! Great place for my Birthday and also for his!
Great foos and ambiance! Will definitely come back
Brunch is always great. You can’t go wrong with the Eggs Benedict.
Beautiful place with great food and ambience. Service was great.
We had a great time at whiskey cake, we are never disappointed with the food there!
My wife and I had a wonderful time the atmosphere was great the food was delicious and creative the portions were just right. The Whisky was some of the best really enjoyed it.
Everything was good. They were busy so food took a while but the server was very nice. The whiskey cake dessert is delicious. The wine pours are small...for consistency, they pour probably 3.5 oz in a small carafe and then pour in wine glass table side but it is smaller than other restaurants I frequent
A little slow service however the food made up for the wait at the table.
Thank you Kalade. Sorry for the slow service but glad the food was great. I will follow up with my service team on your behalf.
It was easter when we went and the only bump was at the checkin table upon arrival. I had a reservation but they were busy. Outside of that everything else was excellent. Our server David was exceptional and made the experience outstanding. We will go again.
Glad to hear you had such a great experience on the Easter Patricia. I will pass the high accolades on to David! Thank you for such a great review.
Great food, great service and on time with reservations.
Thank you Bevy. Glad you enjoyed yourself
Whiskey Cake is one of the few restaurants I enjoy all there ingredients are fresh and local and they rotate there menu by season, plus there bourbon selection is one of the best.....
Thank you for such a great review Gilbert. I am pretty proud of our whiskey selection and I’m always happy to hear when people enjoy it.
It's one of my favorite restaurants. The food and dessert never disappoint!
Glad to hear everything is awesome. Looking forward to having you back in soon enough. Thank you for such a great review.
Food was excellent. Love all the choices of beer selection, not happy with the price of the margarita very small glass with to much ice I wont recommend to friends..
Service was good. It was our 35 year wedding anniversary and our host brings a plactic empty container with 4 candles, not sure what to do with the empty container and candles ..
Thank you Raul. Glad you enjoyed everything
