You need to be informed before you walk into Gwendolyn for dinner. The concept is to eat either a 5 course or 7 course dinner. You should plan to be there for 2-3 hours. The plates are smaller accordingly. They use only the freshest and...More

Interesting storyline put the dinner in inspired context. Added the charcuterie board to the standard Restaurant Week offering. It was the star of the meal. A chef specialty - always order the charcuterie. The entree - Amberjack in a broth loaded with chickpeas - was...More

Classic, Fine Dining, Strictly Local All perishable products from within a 150 mile radius. Everything made by hand as it was done in 1850, without electric machines. Everything made by the classic methods, using only preparations that existed in San Antonio in 1850. We are the reflection of Old Texas in a graceful, romantic setting by the river.
