We made our reservations on line at www.theoldsanfrancisco.com and were greeted by name by a very beautiful "Swing Girl" named Shelly. She was so warm to our children and made us feel special as she sat us in the Main Dining Room. We were greeted by our server, Ross, who invited us to try one of the Steakhouses Signature Drinks. We had "Texas Sunset Swirls" and really enjoyed the delicious and colorful drinks. To our surprise, we were given a souvenir glass each with the Swing Girl logo on the glass to take home with us.
We were really taken by how good the restaurant looked and the ambiance we experienced. The music was superb, a mix of swing and contemporary Jazz and the service maintained a balance of Friendly and Professional. Ross was very knowledgeable and was able to recommend the perfect steak to me, the Cowboy Cut Ribeye and my Wife LOVED her Filet au Poivre. We had a stellar California Cabernet which we were informed came from an Organic Vineyard. It was the perfect pairing with our entrees. The kids ordered off of the Childrens' Menu and we were pleased to see that the Kids' plates looked like real restaurant food in presentation and quality. We were thrilled to see that both the Service and Food definitely exceeded our expectations!
As far as I could tell, they have maintained all of the old traditions like the Big Blocks of cheese on the table and the "Girl on the Red Velvet Swing." The Swing Girl Shelly took us on a tour of the property and we discovered the amazing Crystal Room. We had no idea that this property had a 200 plus seat Atrium-Style Ballroom complete with Palm Trees and Waterfalls! This room is stunning! We can't wait for our Anniversary so that we can throw a party here!
To top off our evening, Ross prepared the classic Bananas Fosters for us table-side. What a touch! We will definitely be back and we hope the San Antonio Locals give this Iconic Steakhouse a try. They will not be disappointed!
