The kitchen made the wrong dish, but it was great and I ate it anyway. When I let the server know (just so we weren't overcharged) he not only corrected the order but took off my drink to help compensate.

Atmosphere is nice and staff is friendly!

I found the hostess to be rude, not seem to be caring about her job, and the same can be said about the waitress we had. Food was not the greatest, however it was edible. Lots of birds, annoying birds. I would definately not return.

The food at Cafe Ole was good. Not the best, but good. The waiter we had was ridiculously slow with everything. The margerita's were okay. The chips and salsa was good, the chips were some of the best on the Riverwalk. We ate outside but there were so MANY birds. It was a bit unsettling. The waitstaff helped shoe away many of the birds which i appreciated. One waiter even gave me the squirt bottle with water to help keep them away.

First visit to Riverwalk. Just chose this one. It was not good at all. Waiter was out of sight and did not care at all. It was not a busy time at all. No fans, it was humid with a rain shower going on. Food was nothing special and prices high for the quaility of food. Marachi band was good thing!

The people doing the Taste of the Riverwalk had to stand outside in a long line in the sun and heat. We also had to eat outside - provided a table could be found. The fried mushrooms were good but the fajitas were so-so. Cafe Ole and Lone Star Restaurant were sharing the space so I'm not sure which food came from which restaurant. Even though we kept saying we did not want anything to drink, they kept asking over and over.
