    The food & service were great, but I came to propose to my girlfriend. There was a large group eating inside & it was too loud to even think of doing anything like that. Had to wait till afterwards

    Not overly impressive. Margarita was good, but fish tacos were very fishy. Enchiladas verde were tasty, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

    A sister restaurant to Rosario's that maintains the food quality though I prefer Rosario's. The chicken mole was lovely and rich though!!

    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. :/

    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

    If you're looking for an appetizer, try the queso flameado! It's a flavorful, smoky spin on a classic favorite.

    Great Riverwalk option for vegetarians. It's not on the menu, but they have some of the best veggie fajitas in SA + good veggie tacos. Mango-coconut-habanero sorbet is a must-have vegan dessert.
