We celebrated our daughter's birthday with a 7 course tasting menu and wine pairings. Every course was extraordinary! Delicate, delicious and masterfully presented. This restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients. They do not use modern food equipment. Basically, everything is prepared manually- no food processors, etc....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.
