We were there on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was quite busy. However we had great service and never felt that we were hurried. Both my husband and I had filet steaks and they were fabulous. When in San Antonio I would definitely go back to this restaurant again!

We took our 13 year old son and his friend for their first fine dining experience. Our server did an EXCELLENT job of providing the full experience. As expected the meal was superb. The kids were offered a 4oz filet with sides that was a perfect size. We have never been let down by the food or service and this time was no exception.

Amazing food and service. My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was very well run. I have had equally good but never better service. The food was amazing. I can't wait to go back.

Great place to spend a wonderful anniversary with my wife! Worth every penny, food was delicious! Staff was superb and thoughtful.
Another beautiful experience at San Antonio's best restaurant. From the valets to the general manager, all were attentive and polite. Our waiter was very personable and delivered outstanding service. Can't wait to return!

The food and service was impeccable. The escargot and the steak was one of the best I have ever had. So delicious. Our waiter, Peter mester was professional and very outgoing. He is a star. I am from San Francisco and I would consider it among the best I have ever been to and will recommend it to all my friends, family, and acquaintances to go to when in San Antonio. Great food and service.

Bohanans is Fantastic!
We dined at Bohanans for fhe first time and were VERY impressed. Classic ambience, exceelent service, and straks beyond compare. We highly recommend Bohanans as The Place to have a memorable steak dinner if you are in San Antonio. You will be impressed, no doubt!
My wife and I visited Bohanan's because we got a gift certificate for a birthday. The greeting staff were really nice and courteous; we got seated right away. The waiter disappeared for awhile after giving us wine menus but this was our only complaint. The steak and sea bass were cooked beautifully and it was the best meal we've had. Parking can be tricky - we parked in Houston St garage and had to loop around two blocks because of one way streets. Either pay up for valet or fight the traffic. 5 stars!

First class service, attention to detail, etc. Food exceptional.
Everything you've heard and more!
We finally got to try Bohanan's and I can say without hesitation, that it was the best meal I have ever had outside New Orleans. I gave it five stars in every category, but wish I could give it six for ambiance. It's pricy, as any good steakhouse is, but this place is so much more than a steak house. The pre-prohibition era cocktails are fun and interesting (and delicious), the bar with the jazz group is very cool, the whole vibe in the dining area makes you feel like you're in a swanky speakeasy, the service is excellent and - THE FOOD!!!! This is a very special place, run by the chef/owner, with a great staff. These folks really just have it all figured out. This is what a great restaurant should be. You know it's a special place when you're still talking about it a week later.

Recently we've visited Ruth's Chris (RC) and Fleming's Steakhouse (FS). We all agreed that our steaks were prepared exactly to our taste. We thought RC and FS were excellent but Bohanan was outstanding. The Red Snapper dishes were also outstanding. Our servers were tremendous.
Highest Level of Service
Excellent evening beginning with all service in suit and tie. The maitre d actually pulled the table away from the booth so I could gracefully sit. Attentive service. Excellent food. A little on the high priced side, we frequent nicer restaurants and this is excellent but still higher than other great places. We will be back For special occasions.

We were going to be downtown for the concert across the street so we made reservations at Bohanan's. This has always been a great place to celebrate and tonight was no exception. Our table was set with rose petals and our waiters were sure everything was perfect. My macadamia encrusted red snapper was exquisity, served with miniature bok choy. So tasty and just the right amount. My husbands steak looked delicious and he said it melted in his mouth. We had a view overlooking to the Majestic and we arrived there with minutes to spare. One of the managers, Carlos came by and checked on us. Everything was impeccable and delicious from start to end.

Service was excellent! Sea Bass was perfect. My husband said his strip steak was not the best he's ever had. Wine list was extensive albeit very pricey. Would loved to have known about sitting in the Terrace room as our seats offered no view.

The service was very good - they clearly were making an effort to cater to their guests. The waiter was very poised and professional. The food was good. I remember feeling like the steak was OK but not cooked or seasoned at the level the prices should command. They had more expensive cuts and options (Wagu, dry-aged, etc.) but at those prices they should get the basics down to a science first in my opinion. There is a small humidor and cigar menu which was a nice treat. Overall, a very nice experience but the value proposition needs improvement.

The food was terrific. The wait staff was even better. Mose was the best waiter I have ever had at any restaurant....anywhere. You simply can't beat Bohanan's.
I have truly enjoyed my Mother's day meal with my wife. She too, enjoyed the seafood offered and left the establishment completely satisfied and happy with our service, meal and ambiance.

Really fantastic steak and service helped me set up an amazing experience for Mother's Day.
Exquisite dining experience
Bohanan's provides a memorable dining experience with an array of options including many off the menu specialty steaks. I would highly recommend the bone in Ribeye or the Wagyu (japanese raised) filet mignon. For dessert the bananas foster is a delicious treat with an exceptional presentation.
Outstanding as ususal
We love Bohanan's it is so wonderful. Husband had the Lamb and it was so good. All I can say is this is the best restaurant in San Antonio.

Have eaten here a few times in the past & was disappointed with the staff, food & experience :( Will go back but will STAY downstairs in the bar for drinks & small plates (no need to go upstairs anymore)
The Best Ribeye Steak and Lamb Chops Ever!
The steak and lamb chops were cooked to perfection. The service was the best we've experienced in years. We will be going again!

Food and service were excellent. My small company comes to San Antonio once a year for a convention, and we all look forward to the night we get to eat at Bohanan's. I hear feedback including, "I've been looking forward to this all year," "I love that place," and "That was the best meal I have ever eaten!"

The whole experience for my wife and I was extremely awesome and will be returning in the future. Great food and service.
What an experience!
We have dined at this restaurant several times and we keep coming back due to the high caliber of service and excellent food they provide. It was our 10th anniversary and we were made to feel very special. From the corner booth (with rose petals on the table) to the champagne toast - we felt like we were the focus of the restaurant. We received team service and each person was great. I have to give special kudos to Jenny - her service was outstanding. Professional yet personable : She helped make our experience special. The food? Outstanding! The candied jalapeños and cream cheese spread was fantastic. Between the wild Alaskan salmon and the perfectly prepared strip steak we were happy campers! Great food, great drinks (try the Between the Sheets) and even better service!
This place is great to celebrate special occasions. The service is really amazing. The food is supberb. I highly recommend this place.

Great that the staff prides themselves on their service. They excel at it. The food is above reproach.
Best steakhouse in San Antonio.
Bohanan's is clearly the top steakhouse in the city. The lowest quality meat they serve is Allen Brothers Prime, top 2% in the country. Of course they have many Japanese style cuts to choose from as well. Fabien, the sommelier is the best in the state of Texas and will find you a perfect wine for whatever price budget you have. If you are looking for a top dining experience you will get it here. They also have my favorite bar in SA downstairs. Enjoy!
