Absolutely charming, reminiscent of small European restaurants. We were seated outside with a view of the Riverwalk. Intimate atmosphere, excellent food and service. Hands down our favorite in San Antonio.

This award-winning restaurant features a historic home with a terraced patio that provides an enchanting view along the Riverwalk at night. The food is among the best you'll find in San Antonio.

As the others have said, yes. It is terraced up the hill from the Riverwalk. Strongly suggest reservations as far in advance as possible if you want to sit outside with the best view.
