Don't go here for breakfast as you will be disappointed. Not anywhere near the quality and caliber it should be for one of the best hotels in San Antonio. This restaurant somehow slipped the quality control of a Hilton product. We were surprised. The Emily Morgan hotel, which this restaurant is in, is wonderful. What was wrong? Food cold, selection...

Spent the Thanksgiving holiday in San Antonio, TX. With no resrrvations, our choices for the holiday dinner were limited. We spotted ORO Restaurant and Bar while touring the Alamo in the morning and it looked like a nice pleasant place to eat. A staff member told us they would be open for dinner with just the regular menu. Great, no... More

We tried out the Hotel restaurant when we were too tired to get out in town. We enjoyed a great meal. Price/quality up to standard including the wine selection.

After many evenings on the crowded Riverwalk, it was time for a nice quiet comfortable meal. I was staying at the Emily Morgan hotel, so just the thing was the restaurant on the ground floor. It was wonderful. A perfectly cooked salmon, with crab chunks as a topping & well prepared green beans, finally completed with cheesecake and fresh fruit.... More

The bar looks cool, but service on a wed night was lacking. The loan bartender merely dropped off a drink menu and didn't bother to tell us about any specialty drinks. Once our drinks came, a margarita and martini, they were average. I ordered pancakes for breakfast and they were so heavy and dense they were unpalatable and arrived luke... More

Had the steak and eggs breakfast. It was so good. Could not eat all of it. Had to share with my husband.

Even though it took quite awhile to get breakfast both mornings, it was well worth it. The breakfast tacos and breakfast quesadilla were amazing! We also loved the coffee, and we are picky about coffee! The staff and managers there were all very friendly and helpful. I am so happy we chose to stay at the Emily Morgan!

I suppose we just came at a bad time. The staff did inform is that there was only one chef in that night, but since we were just six, and the place was so clean and comfortable, we thought we'd wait. And boy, did we wait - almost 2 hours to get dinner! The food was OK - overpriced for... More

Stayed for 4 day business trip while sick. The white bean and chicken chili was delicious. And the Nutella and banana sandwich (kids menu) was the comfort food I was looking for. And an oatmeal cookie.

We only ate breakfast buffet here which was good. The bartenders are very personal. Atmosphere is good. Check out the history on this place prior to staying.
