    I've lived in San Antonio most of my life so I love Mexican food. Acenar has lovely waitstaff and atmosphere but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing is bad just really ordinary and plain. :/

    Great atmosphere with modern-club interior design, located along the Riverwalk. Delicious Mexican food with chips and salsa served on tall vases and popular prickly pear margaritas. Happy Hour anyone?

    Nice for date or chill at the bar upstairs. Away from the touristy part of the Riverwalk also, so quiet at night.

    To start bar tender walked up and took my GF drink away, that she walked in with. Walked out of the bar never asked to replace and took over 5 min to acknowledge we were there. Not a good start

    For about $6 you can order three off menu salsas. A habanero, a jalapeño, and a chipotle. I love the first two.
