My party of four adults from Houston, on holiday in San Antonio, went to Like, which was conveniently located in our hotel. My husband and I had stayed in this Embassy Suites before and discovered Luke. We have eaten in Chef John Besh restaurants in New Orleans. Luke stands up to his reputation. One of our party was handicapped and... More

Had a great three course prix fixe dinner with a wonderful view of the parade from Table 201. Once the parade was really underway, we had reserved seats at the river level for this fun family event. I highly recommend getting reservations here or somewhere else rather than standing eight deep at the bridges to see the parade.

Restaurant works very hard to accommodate dietary restrictions (including vegan or pesco-vegetarian)--and they prepared a special menu for our group of 4 adults + 1 child. Restaurant child friendly and manager even volunteered to watch our toddler who was running around so as to allow us to finish our meal.

Everything we tried was amazing, and the service was fantastic. This is our new go to spot when visit San Antonio. Try the crab and corn fritters. All restaurants associated with Besh are always top of our list.

A friend picked this place to eat from reviews on-line. Not knowing the city, I was a little concerned about its distance from my hotel, the Hilton Palacio del Rio on the map. We finally found the place and was pleased by the spacious quiet and beautiful ambiance. The service was very attentive, actually too attentive. About five different staff... More

My husband and I have fallen in love with Luke. The service is consistently excellent and Oyster Happy Hour is well worth going for. They usually have a good wine selection and a well stocked bar with more high-end options than many local bars. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because indoors can get very loud, not...

I was hoping for a bit more after looking at the menu and pictures of the dining area. We chose to sit outside and this might have taken away from the enjoyment of the evening. There is nothing on the patio that makes you feel a part of the actual restaurant. The oysters on the half shell were very good.... More

Happy hour with friends. Great oysters for $1 each. Fish tacos $3. Drinks 1/2 price. They bring good rolls. Enjoyed seating outside, had a three piece music on Tuesday night's. So good, we went back the next night. One of the managers noticed we had been there the night before and we received a basket of delicious appetizers gratis.

The Luke is located in the Embassy Suites Hotel along San Antonio's famous Riverwalk. We came here for dinner due instead of heading out to the other local establishments since the kids were tired and grumpy. Anyhow, the young lady at the hostess stand was friendly. She greeted us promptly professionally and sat us very quickly. We made small talk.... More

This restaurant is perfect for going to Majestic for a number of reasons. You can park in their parking garage and receive a discount on the parking if you dine in the restaurant, but can leave your car until close. You are just minutes from the Majestic if you are going to a show. And if you are a season... More

San Antonio is now home to acclaimed Chef John Besh’s restaurant, Lüke, on the city's famed Riverwalk, Besh's first restaurant outside of his home state of Louisiana. The casual chic bistro features a menu of authentic Old World cuisine, combining classic German and French cooking techniques served in a warm and inviting space of stylish vintage interior, situated in San Antonio's popular downtown district. At the helm of the kitchen of Lüke is Executive Chef John Russ, born and raised in New Orleans. At Restaurant August, Chef Russ began to form the relationship with John Besh and he learned the importance of forming relationships with farmers and fisherman, which would later be reinforced by his time working on farms in Alabama, New Hampshire, New York and Maryland. Chef Russ returned to the Besh Restaurant Group as Chef de Cuisine on the invitation of Chef Besh. To complement its cuisine, Lüke offers an extensive wine list and beer selection.
