April 24, 2017 my wife and I had the privilege of going to dinner for the first time at Cafe Ole and Michelino's. They are operated by the same company and next to each other. Ellie made the reservations for us on the phone and was very, very friendly and professional. She even came to our table several times and... More

After a long day during FIESTA we decided to eat at Michelino's, bad choice! Plenty of open tables so, (clue) we went inside to the back. The male server was 'J' who was slow moving and more interested in joking with us (not interested) then just taking our order and moving on to get it in the kitchen. Once our... More

Had the veal parmigan. You dont waste veal in the deep fryer to cook it. You can crisp it but not dry it out to the point where it is dry and brittle. The noodles were starchy and the sauce bland. Sorry this is not a winner on the walk

Patronize this place everytime we are in San Antonio. Great tasting Italian dishes with a view of the action on the Riverwalk. Good service. Great food. Always a treat.

I was in a tour group and dinner was scheduled here one night. It is along the River Walk which is great if we weren't seated in the cellar. This restaurant hosted 3 big tour groups at one time. We were told to meet at one spot and we entered the door at another spot. This restaurant was not organized... More

The waitstaff was efficient and our meal was nicely presented. The salad was fresh and crisp, and the large serving of lasagna tasty. The restaurant was located beside the River Walk.

It was a very busy friday night but our waiter Cody was great. The food was excellent, the wine was excellent. We sat on the veranda overlooking the Riverwalk on a beautiful evening. Best food of our whole trip.

We walked to the restaurant from the Marriott Plaza hotel and enjoyed the walk/people watching. The table we sat at was great once the sun went behind the buildings. Then we could watch the Sunday People traffic. I ordered a pizza, but forgot to ask for thin crust. It was good, but definitely more than for one. Good thing my... More

1st night in San Antonio, looks appealing from the street (River Walk). Food tasted bad, service was very poor, left hungry. Three of us all agreed. And since we're going back to S.A. in July, it won't be where we take our larger group and won't be going back.

I can't think of a better way to finish off an early river cruise than dinner at Michelinos. This restaurant was very busy but the wait staff was right on the ball. The washroom was clean and presentable. I had catfish that was second to none. The southern fried chicken with a white gravy on the side, very good. Such... More
