    This was an unforgettable experience. The intimate atmosphere allows for a lot of conversation about the courses and the preparation and inspiration behind them. The flavors were both unexpected and extremely balanced. This is a must do for any foodie - I hope to make it back again the next time I am in the area.

    2nd visit and, just like the first time, Chef Diego and the team knocked it out of the park. This is consistently becoming one of my favorite things to participate in here in San Antonio. From the food, to the conversations, it’s just a good time. This is one of those hidden gems that I can’t get enough of.

    Our 2nd time eating here and we enjoyed every minute of it! The concept is just beautiful and the food is so flavorful and tasty. You can tell that each course of the meal was created with intention and passion! If you get to go when they are doing Africa you will be so pleased you did! I have my favorites, but I won't spoil it. My husband was very happy with his birthday meal and we will return!

    There's not enough good I can say about A Way To The Heart! The food was absolutely amazing from the first course to the last. Although the food was some of the best I've ever had, what makes this phenomenal are the chefs and experience. Food is not just thrown on the table. Each dish is introduced by the chef who created it, down to the finest detail. It is evident these chefs take pride in their dish, and that adds to the experience. 10/10 would recommend!

    This is one of the greatest restaurant experiences of my life. Every course was a revelation and I enjoyed every bite. I've never had a more intimate experience in the restaurant, with the entire staff in the room with a handful of diners. I've never known more about the food I ate, with the chef introducing each plate. I've had great meals before, but this meal was thrilling.

    A unique experience in a quaint environment only 12 guests are allowed during the experience.. The chefs passion was displayed with every dish. I loved the explanation of the journey of the food, and how it was created. It opened up my pallet to new taste profiles in both the food and the drink tastings. Each table only serves two persons, so this is certainly not an experience for a large group, unless you want to sit at another table.

    WOW! I am having trouble finding the words to describe this fantastic experience. Not only was the food amazing, but the whole ambiance and experience was awesome. David and his crew were extremely welcoming. You never felt rushed, like you would in a lot of these types of experiences. The preparation and care of every bite of food was fantastic. I also loved that I could bring my own wine. Definitely a must place to go to when in San Antonio.

    These 4 gentlemen and their crew are amazing. What a great experience, especially for San Antonio, where settings and menus like this are few and far between. Our menu was Oceania, not Asia as per the online menu. Though slightly disappointed because we'd gotten our hopes up for the latter menu, it quickly faded as the first 2 dishes arrived. From new Zealand lamb meatballs to a student inspired squash and sweet potato soup, followed up with an truly inspiring fruit ceviche dish, Chilean seabass, wagyu beef and so much more, each dish out did the last all the way through the Lorax desert! The ambience was truly unique, sitting practically in the kitchen of the train car, we got an inspiring view of the magic going into each dish. The chefs were warm, friendly and caring in both the creation and presentation of the dish, giving us brief explanations as to the origins and inspiration behind each plate. I can't wait for the African inspired menu, which we hopefully got to contribute some ideas to.

    Everything was great, the food was amazing, there was not one dish that made me thunk it was just okay. Only thing that stood out was the broken ac, so it got a little hot during our dinner but to be honest every time they brought out a plate i completely forgot about that😂

    Exceptional experience at Way to the Heart. Elevated cuisine in a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. The chefs introduced and served each dish to the patrons. You could tell how much skill and care went into the preparation of each meal. The open kitchen at the front of the railway car in some ways felt like the inside of a food truck - but in a good way! It was interesting to watch the inner workings of such a chef’s kitchen up close. As close to a one star Michelin restaurant as I have experienced in Texas (shame that such a large state does not have any Michelin recognition). Highly recommend trying at least once. We plan to go back again soon.
