We were staying across from Gwendolyn's and it looked so charming and inviting on the River walk we decided to try. The staff is more than a wait staff, they educate you with the process of Gwendolyns, which takes you back to a time when...More

First off, Restaurant Gwendolyn is a fine dining, Chef driven concept labor of love type of place. If you visit this place expecting Applebees, you are an idiot. The publicity surrounding Gwendolyn, and their own website, are very honest. Chef Michael has a passion for...More

I rarely review, except for those places that feel themselves justified to charge exorbitant prices. If you're going to charge me $300+, you had better provide a truly exceptional meal. The dozen or so times I've paid this much for a meal, I've always come...More

Restaurant Gwendolyn is a must do! We booked a reservation on this restaurant based on the reviews in the farm to table, local cuisine. With an ever changing menu, we were not sure what we would be enjoying the night of our reservation, but are...More

So we didn't know what to expect of this place. They seemed very anti-technology on their website, but my friend wanted to go and it was Restaurant Week. Our server was awesome. About our age, so it helped the place seem less stuffy. With the...More

Gwendolyn is upfront about their "locally sourced fresh food", a very chic/popular move right now. However, in San Antonio that means turnips and beets in January as well as other unusual takes such as beet sorbet for dessert. If you're looking for a unique and...More

I really wanted to like this place. the concept is great, the service was great, however it seems almost if they tried too hard to be hip. They change their menu seasonally, this season is all about "roots". That said, I was served an amuse...More

I'm Celiac -- what are my gluten-free options? Do I need to provide advance notice with our reservation? We will be dining with a group -- 5 "normal" and 1 "Celiac" (me). How will the 3-course/5-course choices work for me?

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.
