Ácenar

Welcome to Ácenar Restaurant where tantalizing food, hip design and service with style await you!

Restaurateur Lisa Wong, and her business partner Pete Selig, joined forces in 2005 to launch Ácenar … one of the largest and most innovative contemporary Mexican restaurants and bars on the River Walk. Guests will enjoy a modern take on Texas regional Mexican dishes inspired by the history and heritage of these two cultures.

Her professional team, led by Executive Chef Richard Sánchez - delivers a culinary explosion of bold Latin-infused flavors. Enjoy many fine selections of Gulf fish, crab and shrimp, or piping-hot San Antonio style enchiladas, savory chiles rellenos, sizzling parrilladas, asadas and cabrito —
all made to your satisfaction.

Our multi-level spacious restaurant features floor, balcony and outdoor seating. The interior and exterior reflect colors and designs influenced by Lisa’s Mexican and Asian heritage.

"My husband and I often go to Acenar for drinks and dinner before plays at the Majestic. When the weather is suitable, we can sit outside above the Riverwalk, or we can choose inside, where the ceiling is high and the noise is low. The food is Mexican, but this is not fast-food, run-of-the-mill Mexican. It is upscale, unique dining. If you've eaten at Lisa Wong's other restaurants, Rosario's, you know what I mean. We always come away happy, full and satisfied."

"We ate here last Wednesday before seeing Kinky Boots at the Majestic Theatre. The service was outstanding, and our waiter was very attentive and explained several menu items we had questions about. The food was delicious. I ordered a steak with shrimp diablo. The steak was supposed to be 8 oz., it had to be between 12-14 oz. and was cooked to medium rare perfection. It has been a couple of years since we ate here but we will do so the next trip downtown since the menu is so varied and the prices are very reasonable."

"Went with a recommendation from our hotel front desk, was a little nervous, but they definitely did not disappoint! The duck chalupas were delicious, highly recommended!"

"Great place that we went to with a group of 8--had no wait at 630, although it got a bit busy later.
The one and only thing we really disliked was the mariachi band playing that night. They were pushy, and constantly asking for tips before they would even play. So they kind of hung around our table requesting tips and only played one song after we all coughed up some cash. After that one song, they went off to the next song and repeated this process. So it seemed like they were just in it for money and one song before they ditched you. Not very nice.
After clearing all the tables, the band left, presumably to go to another restaurant close by. It was the oddest experience I've ever had with a band at a restaurant, and it was not a pleasant experience.
Other than that, the food is great, the margaritas divine, and the service friendly."

"Really enjoyed the patio dining and the margaritas. The salsa was delicious and the rest of the food was good but not remarkable."

"Beautiful atmosphere, friendly service, and excellent Mexican food right on the River Walk. Highly recommend the cucumber jalapeño margarita! Some good options for vegetarians, too, which can be tough to find on the river."

"The salsa was delicious! I could have made a meal from that alone. The dishes we ordered were good but nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered the appetizer sampler, tinga chicken empanadas, citrus salad with shrimp, and chicken chalupa to share for our table of four for lunch. The margaritas were average."
