    Not attentive and even though he walked by our table at times (not often) he never asked if we needed anything. Good food made up for some of the poor service.

    Dined early at Gorman's. We were the only patrons for most of our meal. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, as you might expect. Varied menu with continental appeal. Husband's ribeye was perfect, and Mom's shrimp equally good. No difficulty about substituting items for dietary restrictions. Had the beef medallions, which were excellent. A little surprised to receive chilled creme brulee, though, as I've always had it at least warm. Tasty, though. We will definitely go back and sample some of the other interesting offerings on the menu.

    My party arrived to a relatively empty restaurant at 730. We were promptly seated and placed our drink orders. Our 3 cocktails, which were menu items, took 30 min to be delivered. A bottle of wine was ordered as well and the cork was broken off while the waiter struggled with its removal. The bottle was then left on the table. No decanter. Appetizers and main courses were then ordered. It took another 30 min for 2 appetizers. Our meals finally arrived at 930. 2 hours after our arrival. A medium rare steak was ordered that came out charred on top and solid grey throughout with the consistency of a tire. Luckily, that item was removed from the check. The venison dish was amazing. There are many, many kinks to be worked out.

    A brunch location in New Braunfels with something other than breakfast tacos - not that there's anything wrong with that. But, once in a while you might like some really fine and well-prepared food other than that. If so - Gorman's is the place. And kids can eat for a reasonable price, too.

    We always look forward to dining at Gorman's. Great food and excellent service is their standard. Gorman's is an hour's drive from our home, but well worth the drive to dine there.

    The room is attractive, but very busy and really loud. The service was very good and the place was packed. The food was excellent. We will be back often to explore the very interesting menu.

    A wonderful experience from beginning to end. Nice, white table cloths, beautiful table wear, waitstaff in white shirts and ties...all make you feel very special. My husband and I both ordered the Chefs Special which was delicious. This place has it all going on. Highly recommended 👍

    We were a table of 6, only two out of four had reasonably good food. The steaks were tough and served warm. Fish tacos were cold and over cooked. When the chef visited our table we let him know how disappointing the food was. He said the beef was primed and we had three people at our table that disagreed with him. The bread was enjoyed by all.

    I have been to Gorman's several times since they have opened and am making my way through the menu. I can tell you that every appetizer or entree I have had has been the best! I just keep ordering different things to see what else the chef has to offer. Every item has been fantastic and worth recommending. Chef Brent is amazing...he knows food!

    Extensive menu and custom omelet station make this a great place for Sunday brunch. The entire staff was very personable and attentive without being bothersome. We went for brunch at 2 pm so we missed the busiest brunch time. We will go again soon.
