Decide to go to Old San Francisco Steak house tonight for our anniversary. We arrived about 5:30 p.m. and was told the resturant closed September 1st, unless we had a reservation. Since it was a last minute decision, we hadn't made a reservation. There is nothing on the website that states they have seasonal hours. Needless to say, they won't be getting any of my business in the future. If I am going to pay high prices for dinner, can go to the Tower of the America's and have a much better view!!
This weekend we took a trip to San Antonio from Houston. Years ago our Old San Francisco closed down and it was a major disappointment because we went there on a regular basis. Our first stop in San Antonio was to this restaurant. Upon arriving we noticed that the parking lot was full but the restaurant had some empty tables. There was a private party of some kind going on and everyone seemed to have a reservation but us. We waited an extremely long time to get a table, but they did eventually seat us. The service wasn't wonderful, it was very slow. The food was excellent. OSF has always made the steak exactly how we like.The salad wasn't wonderful, however. Getting our drinks refilled was something that was infrequent. The manager/chef came to our table and made sure everything was good. My mom was not happy with a particular food item and they made it right. I am so glad that there is a OSF still around and wish there was one in Houston still. We will be back, but next time we plan to have a reservation because it seems that they are a necessity.
Enjoyed our evening – We enjoyed our experience last week. The service was excellent, and the employees were very attentive and personable. Our steak was cooked as requested. The sides and appetizers were very good, and minor requests were accomodated graciously. The "fiesta" was happening in San Antonio at the time, and we were very pleased to be away from the crowd. The quality and preparation of food compared to the price was consistent with similar values in our home market.
mediocre food for an expensive price – My companion and I were disappointed with the food. My $38 steak was just OK and my companion's fish had a stong fishy taste and was hard. The cheese was good as was the service. At $14 a gkass, the wine was grossly overpriced. The show and piano player/singer was very good. If we go back, we will stick to the lower priced dishes as the high end items are not worth the price.
Warning>>> do not eat here!! – Sorry folks but this place needs to keep the doors closed.
The service was very good but the food was less than average.The steak was not tender and lacked flavor. The baked potato was not done all the way.Now I know why the parking lot was empty.
To top it off when we get the bill (just two of us) they decided to add the TIP. Well where I come from the TIP is base on service.We talked to the assistant manager( he was great) and retrieved the manager( the cook) and the cook didn't really care to here about what we were saying.
WE WILL NEVER GO BACK !!!!
I don't even want to rate this but I have to so I can post this!!!
Not Worth It.... – Went to Old Sanfrancisco for our 30th anniversary. The empty parking lot on a Saturday night was our first sign not to eat here. This place was dead and boring and had an awful smell. Food was OK but not worth 100 bucks. Not expecting the forgetful waitress to add in a hudge tip for a party of 2. This place will not be open long.
Keep in mind new management since DEC 2007 – We will test them with our party of 30+ this month!
What a change! – I hadn't been to OSF in around 3 years or so. The last time I went, the food was so-so and overpriced. I saw that it had re-opened and my wife and I decided to give it another chance. It was a favorite place of mine in the 90's, and deserved a second chance. Wow! What a difference an owner makes! The food was incredible and the service was some of the best I've EVER had! (Thanks, Tony...) If you've ever been a fan of OSF, go back. You won't be disappointed!
GREAT DINING OFF THE RIVERWALK – My wife and I were visiting San Antonio this week and after dining 4 days at Riverwalk restaurants we wanted a change of pace and San Francisco Steakhouse provided great fun and fine dining in a friendly informal atmosphere.
Under new management with a friendly helpful staff, the dininng experience was great fun from the pretty young lady swinging in the air in the red velvet swing, good music, plentiful drinks and the finest steaks to the swiss cheese wedge was awesome, too.
What a Blessing! – I am from Houston TX and had business in San Antonio this weekend. Well we were looking for a place to eat and just for fun I said "lets google The Old San Francisco Steak House, maybe they might have 1 open, yeah right we all said". However, to our suprise we saw it on google so I called and sure enough it was open. We made our way to the restaraunt and were greeted and seated immediately. Our server was wonderful and the food and presentation of our platers were wonderful. We were so impresed with the food that we wanted to speak with the chef to give him Kudos for a job well done. He was not available to speak with us so the waiter brought the owner to our table. We spoke with her and she immediately made us feel welcomed. She told us her story of how she was Blessed with the restaurant and the story of the cheese which was hillarious (Cheese police). All in all this was a wonderful dining experience and I would definitely give it 5 stars. We will be back real soon just to eat at this restaurant. Also, there was a wedding going on in the banquet room which was beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant to all who live in San Antonio and from far away. May God bless Mrs. Esparza, her family and all her wonderful staff.
Thanks for a great dining experience, see you all soon!!
