The wait staff was very helpful. They offer a happy hour. The menu is small, and the dishes are twists on standard American dishes. The food was not bad, but I was looking for more of a simple menu. The breakfast was great!

The food was very tasty. The menu choices were a little limited and the prices weren't great. The service was great - bartender and waitresses. I've eaten there several times.

We stayed two nights in the Emily Morgan Hotel that houses Oro in the lobby. Both nights we went to the bar for drinks before dining out downtown. Both nights I ordered the same drink, a dirty vodka martini, and both times the same bartender forgot to make it dirty. I reminded it, and he remixed my existing drink cheerfully.... More

Good appetizers and drinks. Pricey entrees that were not as tasty as I would have expected. Clayton was a good waiter, but the main courses of filet mignon and portabella salad were poorly executed.

Not the best place but it was the most convenient.to get in out of a rainstorm while touring the Alamo. We had the Nachos and the Sliders which was way too much food for us we only ate half of each.

Don't go here for breakfast as you will be disappointed. Not anywhere near the quality and caliber it should be for one of the best hotels in San Antonio. This restaurant somehow slipped the quality control of a Hilton product. We were surprised. The Emily Morgan hotel, which this restaurant is in, is wonderful. What was wrong? Food cold, selection...

Spent the Thanksgiving holiday in San Antonio, TX. With no resrrvations, our choices for the holiday dinner were limited. We spotted ORO Restaurant and Bar while touring the Alamo in the morning and it looked like a nice pleasant place to eat. A staff member told us they would be open for dinner with just the regular menu. Great, no... More

We tried out the Hotel restaurant when we were too tired to get out in town. We enjoyed a great meal. Price/quality up to standard including the wine selection.

After many evenings on the crowded Riverwalk, it was time for a nice quiet comfortable meal. I was staying at the Emily Morgan hotel, so just the thing was the restaurant on the ground floor. It was wonderful. A perfectly cooked salmon, with crab chunks as a topping & well prepared green beans, finally completed with cheesecake and fresh fruit.... More

The bar looks cool, but service on a wed night was lacking. The loan bartender merely dropped off a drink menu and didn't bother to tell us about any specialty drinks. Once our drinks came, a margarita and martini, they were average. I ordered pancakes for breakfast and they were so heavy and dense they were unpalatable and arrived luke... More
