Wife and I had lunch here today and were very impressed with food quality and preparations. Busy lunch hour for Boudro's, especially the outside table next to waterway. We chose indoor seating, which was much more open and quiet. Upscale atmosphere inside. Much more than outside. For appetizers, we had dessert of vanilla ice cream with a peanut brittle candy coating. It was very good. Portion was a bit small for sharing, but adequate size anyhow, and very tasty. We also had a seared scallop dish which was great. Waitress was preparing fresh avocado salsa for table next to ours and it looked wonderful, so we asked for that. She gladly prepared same at our table and that was a good call. Wife had a burger and I had a prime rib sandwich. Both were very good and nice size portions. Service was excellent/perfect. I surely would return, next visit to the San Antonio area. Thanks folks. Very nicely done.
We have eaten here many times and have always found the food, wait staff, chef and hostess's to be exceptional. We've eaten in the restaurant as well as outdoors and as we are transplanted San Antonians (been here since '81) we have always visited before/between peak dining hours. We've eaten everything from the Blackened Catfish to their perfectly cut and cooked steaks, have enjoyed each of our appetizers and a variety of top shelf drinks made to order. We've even had a late lunch after I had undergone an out patient surgery and enjoyed every bit of our plates. We each typically make sure to order something different and 'share' a bit of each others plate. So, if you are a visitor to our fair city and want to make sure your meal is as excellent as I know you would like, give them a quick call when you get up in the AM and make a reservation for your lunch or dinner. Bon Apetite!
Our first trip here a couple of months ago was good, but our most recent trip was awful. Upon arrival we were told that the wait was 1 hour, not unusual for this place. They offered to walk us over to their sister restaurant (about a block away) where there was a full bar since Boudros has no bar seating. After a bout a hour a half, we asked the wait staff to check on our table and magically, it was ready. We assume that we slippled though the cracks somewhere. Back at Boudros we requested a seat off of the main aisle and were faced with another 30 minute wait before a table was finally ready. We ordered the blackened prime rib, one of Boudro's specialties. The meat was cooked correctly but was of very poor quality. For $28, I expected at least a decent piece of meat. Since we were starving at this point we ate what we could and chalked it up to experience. The final insult came on our way out when the manager asked us how our dinner was. When we told him about our meal he admitted to us that they had been having trouble with their supplier and were not happy with the quality of the meat either. You would think that under these circumstances management would offer to comp the meal or provide an incentive for a return visit, but no such luck in this case. To be fair, the staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our ordeal, I just expected better of this place.
Dined at Boudro's for our 10 year anniversary. We were met with Champagne and a great corner table. I dined on one of the house specials...Quail! The birds were stuffed with rice and came with new potatos. It was fantastic. The wife had some house special fish which also was good. Had to try the guacamole as it was consistantly recommended, but we failed to see what the big deal was. Fresh...sure, but not necessarily any big deal. It was a fantastic meal and service was adequate. Do make a reservation as it gets packed.
Boudros's is fab!!! We have taken the riverboat dinner cruise three years in a row and will continue to take one every time we are in San Antonio. Pricey, but sooooo worth it!! You must do it! Food is excellent, service is so gracious, margaritas are yummy and the tour around the river is so romantic! Great for families too. We've taken our girls and they just love it! If you are vacationing in San Antonio, Boudro's is not one to miss!
