Savor was our anniversary dinner choice and it far exceeded our expectations. Four delectable courses served, cooked, baked, presented, and supervised by every aspect of the culinary institute. These students are trained and expected to work every aspect of the restaurant experience, from your initial welcome at the door to serving your table and cooking each meal. They are trained and supervised by multiple mentors who are on site. Additionally, each and every person working carried them self with kindness and poise. A big shoutout to our server Shyanne. She’s truly found comfort in working with the public and made our experience even more special.

La Cantera
About the restaurant
If you find yourself dreaming of the Texas Hill Country, savory comforts, spice, and the sultry depth of a fine Burgundy, you’ll be pleased to know about Signature at La Cantera Resort & Spa.

The menu is straightforward and beguiling, featuring contemporary interpretations of classic dishes — fresher, brighter versions of traditional cuisine enlivened with unconventional Texas spirit. Gulf seafood conspires with Atlantic Coast oysters flown in fresh, and the Hill Country is well-represented year-round. Local and organic ingredients change the menu as the seasons peak and wane, but the constants are quality, flavor, artistry in the kitchen and a warm welcome when you walk in the door.

Built right on the bank of the Guadalupe River, 1011 Bistro offers the most spectacular view in Kerrville. You will find something in our menu for a special occasion, family gathering, or just kick back with friends and a bottle of wine on our open terrace.

Michelle, our waitress, was funny and responsive. The hotsy totsy sandwich was delicious. Shrimp etouffee was a little too spicy. Corn bread was good but would have been great warm. Love the outside patio and grounds.

Silo is one of my favorite restaurants. The shishito peppers are to die for! So are the scallops! The attention to detail is what sets their food apart from similar restaurants. There is just more care given to get the flavor balance perfect in every dish, even the sides and small plates.
