I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.
I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
This new sports bar is a bit hidden but worth the find. Bring some friends with you because you'll want to stay a while. A bartender named Yamil from Puerto Rico was friendly and knew his Spurs facts...good conversationalist and also an active duty Army Staff Sargent. The place is exceptionally clean and one of only a few that I've found here in San Antonio with a choice of draft beers on the cheap. They also carry your favorite mixed drinks. It's not a dive bar. They have live music and a bar menu that carries somewhat of a version of the Philly Cheese Steak and burgers. The owner named Dana makes sure everyone is on point for service. The bar features a few flat screens along with a huge screen to watch your favorite games. I highly recommend this bar although not five star but not far..who knows after this weekends updates.
Wow! I just had lunch at La Tuna and it was great! I had the Chicken Sandwich. There was 4 in our party and we all enjoyed our selections very much. The food was hot, fresh and full of flavor. Looking at the other diners' dishes, I'd have to say everything looked great. The portions were generous. The service was wonderful as well. We had a great lunch and will definitely be back to try out some other dishes. It does get a little crowded at lunchtime, but we got there just before the crowd came in. There is not too much seating indoors, but there are plenty of tables outside in the shade of the pecan trees. Even at a little less than 100 degrees, people outside seemed to enjoy themselves. The shade of the trees really helped making it tolerable.
This nightclub really sets apart from all of the others. It really has such an amazing atmosphere, it is clean, fun, and really nice. We went on a Saturday night. It was a late crowd but man it got packed. The door guy was really nice. We sat on the patio and smoked and he talked to us. He also enforced the dress code which was nice to see. He was very professional about it too. The bartender was hot. She was really accomodating and worked really fast. I hate when I go to bars and no one is husseling to get drinks out. Here it was different. All of the employees were working hard with still being friendly. Drinks were really good. The bartender suggested a cucumber drink that had a chili rim and it was delicious. We found our Saturday night spot for sure.
Beautiful nightclub, the decor is unlike anywhere in San Antonio. As we arrived the door guy was turning away some people who werent dressed right which was reassuring. We arrived around 10 and quickly realized it is a late crowd. So if you are an early bird like us, just hang out and wait because it will get crowded around 11:30. The cocktails were really good too, very inexpensive. We had about 8 drinks all premium (Greygoose-Shiner-Crown-Shots of Patron) and the tab with tax was about only $25. A lot of the tables were reserved for VIP Bottle Service which looked super cool because the bottles were delivered with a sparkler. We had so much fun that we are going to have my friends birthday party there next month.
I love it here! They have live bands almost every weekend and a great DJ! The drink prices are great and the atmosphere is wonderful! They also have one of the best Margaritas I have ever tasted! If you like Tejano music or just love to dance, this is the place to be! I also love going on weds nights for karaoke night... I have a blast...not to mention $1 beer from 9pm-11pm. The owner is are so nice and friendly. She always makes us feel comfortable. There has never been any altercations when I have gone, so that makes me feel safe as well. The door guys is super sweet as well. I like that we walks the parking lot and keeps an eye on peoples vehicles. This place is now my go to place every weekend!
I went here for lunch. I had the La Tuna Trio. (mini burgers) They were very good. I got 1 each of the three available flavors. My 3 friends all enjoyed their meals also.The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable.There is limited seating inside but plenty outside. So, go early or be prepared for the current weather conditions.It seemed it took just a little long to have the food come out but not so long that it was a problem.The order counter was in a hallway between two rooms. Not the best place when there is a line to order.I will go back.
I find myself being being an extremly picky person when it comes to bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. I have experienced some of the best and worst places not only in SA but in all around the US. Ivory has made it to the top of my list, especially for San Antonio. I went on a Saturday night and the whole experience was FABULOUS. The DJ played a good variety of music, the drinks were inexpensive because they had several specials, and the service was great. I was impressed with how clean everything was since it was all white.
We had my Birthday party at Ivory and it was packed, it got busy kinda late. The bottle came out with a giant sparkler which was super cool and the DJ gave me a shout out for my BDAY several times. The drinks were really cheap which was a plus for my guests. Everyone in our party really had a great time. The crowd (Mexican and white) was dressed really nice and the music was spot on. The location was a little tucked away in a shopping center on Fredericksburg, but they had plenty of parking. I wish I found this place sooner.
