This is one of my favorite San Antonio restaurants. Unique southwest meets former quarry vibe to the space and the food is always fantastic! The chef puts together the best blend of fresh foods with complementary flavors and textures that wake up the palate that...More

This restuarant was fantastic from Salsa and chips down to the surprise of a dessert at the end of the meal. The Salsa is homemade and it takes 2 days to repare it and it was thebest Ihave ever tasted!

This was one of the few places in the area open late evening on a Sunday. Service was friendly and attentive, but I just wasn't impressed with the food. The selection of food was a strange mix and it tasted ok.

Great margarita but very disappointed in chicken fried steak. Gravy was not real thick and steak could have been pounded out better. Wouldn't have it again.

It's located in the Alamo Quarry Market area. The appetizer of tableside guacamole was a first and very good. The black and bleu quesadilla were great. The complimentary white chocolate and pecans wrapped in corn husks was a pleasant surprise.

The best thing about this place is the unique chips and salsa- they have regular tortilla chips, but also potato and sweet potato chips and some blue corn chips, all served warm with a tasty salsa. The menu is not extensive, but there are some...More

It didn't look like it had private dining, but I would think they would set up tables to accommodate 25. Like everyone else has said, call first.
