Great food, fantastic service

Dined 3 days ago

From the onion rings for an appetizer to the peanut butter chocolate brownie the food was great. Took my wife here for our 30th anniversary and our server could not have made it more special. My wife was estatic. The veal porterhouse chop did the trick for me.

Bob's As We Saw it on April 25, 2016

Dined on April 25, 2016

Very good steaks. Average salads. Good bar drinks. Friendly service. This is a restaurant for beef. Accompanying dishes, in the opinion of my husband and our friends, are just average. For the price, I'd take Cappy's every time, though. This was our third visit to Bob's.

Anniversary Dinner

Dined on April 20, 2016

We celebrated our 20th Anniversary at Bob's. I booked with Open Table and noted that it was our anniversary. Waiting for us at the table was a card signed by the staff and a small bottle of champagne. A very nice touch to start the evening. Their homemade pickles and bread make a nice snack before your decide on dinner. All the food was superb in taste and presentation. We ordered a Shrimp cocktail,(4 monsters) and the salmon plate--enough for three people. Salads can be split at no extra charge. I canceled my salad order so that I could finish the salmon. We ordered a small and a medium filet. They were cooked to perfection and so tender. They were the best steaks we have had in San Antonio in a long time. The price is sure worth the wonderful flavor and tenderness. The carrot was a treat and the potato was huge and baked to perfection. With these sides provided there is no need to order any other sides. Now to dessert----We ordered the peanut butter brownie--it is huge with 6--YES, 6 scoops of ice cream, choc. sauce, whip cream and a cherry. The brownie is almost as big as a dinner plate and the ice cream is stacked to make a tower. Quite a sight and delicious and could be shared by 3-4 people. We shared a bottle of Australian wine in the $40 range. Bob's wine list is extensive and has something in every price range and by the glass offerings. We are already talking about going again for Mother's Day. We will order one appetizer to share, maybe split a salad, and order the small filet. The service was gracious and attentive, but never over bearing. Our waiter, Joey A, explained the menu, the specials, and let us know that all orders could be split. This was great information especially for the family that sat next to us. Noise level was at a minimum. We dined on a Wed. and I am a firm believer that mid week dinning is far superior to the Fri-Sat crowds. I am sure glad we saw the advertisement in the Texas Monthly and decided to try Bob's.

Fantastic date night

Dined on March 26, 2016

What an amazing place. Ordered the 28oz porterhouse, 14oz lobster tail, bacon wrapped shrimp, key lime pie, all delicious. Steak was ordered rare, and cooked perfectly. Our server Andrew was fantastic. I'm a server myself, so I tend to critical, but Andrew surpassed expectations. His wine recommendation was exactly what both my girlfriend and I were looking for. This place is not cheap, but the portions, quality and service make it worth it.

Noise

Dined on March 13, 2016

We had a large party next to our table, so while they were there, it was quite a high noise level. Once they left, we were ok. The dining areas are not really large enough for big parties when you combine them with other smaller tables. We had 5 at our table and until the large party left, we couldn't hear each other at all. Other than that, everything was completely outstanding!

The crab cakes are amazing!!

Dined on March 12, 2016

The crab cakes were the best I've ever had. Your steak already comes with a potato and carrot so no need really to order sides because it becomes too much food. But the sides were delicious and they packed them up nicely for us to take home.

OK, but not really worth the price...

Dined on February 21, 2016

Bob's appears to be trying hard to be a fine dining establishment, but it's not there yet...arrived on a Saturday at 6:30...things started off well as the reservation was correct and we were seated immediately... But the wife and I immediately felt a bit rushed to place orders...and the feeling continued throughout the whole dining experience... The food was not bad, but having eaten at the establishment right next door, it was certainly not worth the hefty mark up... I can recommend their lobster bisque though...very tasty...

Great but can get loud, and dress not required

Dined on February 16, 2016

My husband and I love this place! The food is always on point and the service is there when you need them and gone when you don't. The only drawback is the website stated business casual and reservations but it seemed like both time we went they were taking people in jeans and converse or flip flops.

Disappointed

Dined on February 15, 2016

I was disappointed with my experience. I took my girlfriend for valentines day. The service was great as usual, but the food was just so-so. My steak came out well over cooked twice. And i had to wait another 15 minutes to get my second steak after sending back the first. I have been to bobs a few times before and really enjoyed it which is why i gave it 3 stars and not 1. I think they were just having an off day.

Dined on February 14, 2016

First time here and service was good and informative. Was looking for refills towards the end but then again I can drink a lot of water. Food was good but I have had better in other fine restaurants. I understand it was Valentines weekend but the partitions were the most romantic. But I can understand the room limitations. I would recommend this restaurant and explain my experience.

Quality of the food was fantastic. Cost was about what I would expect for a serious steakhouse. Server (Dominique) came in to work on Valentine's Day after he had resigned several months prior. The young man was absolutely perfect. Though he won't be there, the service we received is a big reason we will be back.

Quite a bit for your money.

Dined on February 7, 2016

I was surprised to get a seasoned carrot and a choice of potato with my meat. Many steak restaurants do everything al-a-carte. My husband was celebrating his birthday and they provided his dissert from the regular menu and not just their choice. The classic mixed salad was great with Romaine lettuce and not just iceberg lettuce.
