    One of our all time fave places to eat. I had the Caesar salad and my husband had the lettuce wedge with bacon and blue cheese, both were surprising large and loved the dressings. My husband and I both had the rib-eye steaks with loaded potato. Portions were large and steak was cooked perfectly. I could barely finish my salad and biscuits when the steak came. Really enjoyed our evening and will be back. We are locals and spend Christmas eve dinner with our whole family each year in the Cibolo Moon...have not had a bad meal as of yet. You must try the: SMOKED BRISKET “BURNT ENDS”BLUE CHEESE / FLOUR TORTILLA as an appetizer as well as the : SMOKED GREEN CHILI QUESO TORTILLA CHIP excellent choices...our family loves those.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    The server broke just about every rule for pacing a meal, which completely ruined the meal. She was so concerned about getting us to eat quickly and flip the table tHat she ignored all etiquette. She wantes our drink orders, however, we were still without drink menus. Once she got us the drink menu, she stood over is wanting is to decide then and there. She took it a step further by trying to get our dinner order at the same time. We also had to prompt her to give us the nightly specials. Our entrees came out less than 5 minutes after our app. She asked my daughters no less than 3 times if she could remove their plates. And a bday dessert came out while I was still eating, and no dessert menus were offered, just the bill.

    Food was wonderful! We ate here several times during our stay at the resort. I especially enjoyed the fresh guacamole with grilled onions and Prasek's thick-cut bacon on top and the Jalapeño chicken and waffles is NOT to be missed! However, the star of the show was the Redneck Mac & Cheese... my husband said it was the best thing he has ever put in his mouth! That being said, I was disappointed in the grits (they were cold and slightly congealed, reminded me of the malt-o-meal my mom made when I was a kid). Service was outstanding! ALL of our servers went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience.

    Cibolo Moon was such a great finale for our trip down to the JW Marriott. They bring out delicious biscuits and jalepeno jelly as a complementary appetizer. We got the chips and queso as a second appetizer. I swear I could have just eaten that. I got the bison meatloaf with mac and cheese for dinner. I was a little skeptical about what the flavor would be like since bison meat is typically much leaner than beef but there was so much flavor to this and the mac and cheese was perfect. With an appetizer, my meatloaf and my wife's salad, it was $50 with tip. Not bad for a great dinner with a great view!

    We hosted a small client dinner at the Cibolo Moon and they were very accommodating. The table attendant did a great job conveying the specials and knew about the dishes on the menu. He was also helpful in selecting wine. The food was great, appetizers were too (jalapeno poppers were great as was the burnt ends with blue cheese).

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    We had dinner reservations at Cibolo Moon on a Sunday evening. There were not many people at the restaurant, but the service was terrible. Our waitress had 4 other small tables; we saw other customers complaining about the service. It took her forever to come take our order. She asked if we wanted bread service before our meal; we said yes. After 15 minutes of waiting on the bread, she came to our table and I asked about the bread. She said they were out but making some and it should take 10 minutes; that was not the case. We got our entrees, ate them, & still didn't have bread. It finally came after we finished eating dinner. The waitress never refilled our drinks, even when empty. We will not be returning to Cibolo Moon. Disappointed!

    We just returned from our stay at the JW Marriott. We ate at Cibolo Moon every breakfast and dinner. We loved the breakfast and dinner buffets. For my daughter's birthday, we ate from the menu and it was great also. We also ate lunch outside on the last day and wished that we had eaten there every other day instead of eating by the pool - The food was much better at Cibolo Moon. The Sticky Buns on the breakfast buffet are to die for!

    We ate at Cibolo Moon for breakfast one morning and dinner another night. The staff is hit and miss with service. Long wait for someone to come by and help and then they forget to bring what you ask for. At one point I had to get up and go get a water pitcher to refill my husband's empty glass. Eggs tasted weird and lines long for buffet. Also overpriced. The dinner buffet wasn't any better. Two main items for children's buffet, and desserts were not as tasty as their appearance. Overall it was better to travel a few minutes up the road to dine elsewhere. I expected more for being a J.W. Marriott resort.

    One of the best brunch's we've had. Their selection was wonderful with many in house specialties. They were very accommodating to gluten sensitive people with many choices for my wife including toast. When my wife asked what they offered, the chef even went in the back to find their gluten free pancake mix just for my wife; they were so good, we all tried them and thought they were great.

    The hostess sat us down and said our waitress would be with us. We sat there for about fifteen before a waitress said she would take our drink orders because she saw us waiting there for awhile. She ended up being our waitress for the evening. She said she would just take care of us. Other than that, it was a nice place to eat.

    The food was okay and the service was acceptable, however I expected a lot more. I brought my wife to your resort for the weekend with the expectation that she and I would have a great time eating amazing food, and have a great romantic atmosphere. My wife and I agreed that the food was lacking. In fact we skipped out on brunch the day we left because we reasoned that if brunch was anything like dinner we could get the same thing at a chain restaurant for half the price.

    This is our 3rd year of celebrating Mothers Day at Cibolo Moon. While we tried to get reservations for brunch, we had a back-up for dinner. Dinner was great and recommend an early seating so you can take advantage of the tables with a view. Food was excellent! Look forward to next year. After dinner or brunch, recommend walking the grounds to take in the sights.

    On my reservation I specifically asked for a nice romantic table for 2 since it was my husband's birthday. We arrived a couple minutes late and we're seated at a booth next to a family with 3 young rambunctious children. It was loud and there was nothing special whatsoever about the experience. Nor did they even acknowledge his birthday. The food was not worth the money.

    We live a stones throw from here and the couple we met suggested the JW, they frequent. As a first time diner, we received a complimentary appetizer of gulf shrimp sautéed wonderfully, and was plenty for the 4 of us. The men ordered a special that I would describe as ground beef with thick sauce and potatoes. The ladies ordered beet salad. All were wonderful. The portions were moderately sized. Presentation was okay, but nothing stood out. The entry had an inviting bar surrounded by, what appeared to be, a buffet filled with a large selection of hot, covered comfort foods and a green salad. Overall the experience was very good, but a bit loud to converse at a comfortable level. It was a Saturday evening.

    LONG story short we ate at 18 Oaks one night and Cibilo Moon the next and both were great and delicious (18 Oaks was more fine dining) but I had to review this dinner because our server went above and beyond taking care of us. My youngest developed a bit if a stomach ache after ordering apps (too much fun and too many virgin raspberry daiquiris pool side?) so he had to go up to room with hubby. They sent him up with crackers and soda water and had chicken noodle soup sent up to the room! SO sweet! We ordered hubby's takeout and took it too him when we were finished. Servings were generous - my sons ribs were as long as his arm! - and food was flavorful. Very good service by our waitress!!!

    Nice place, but keep in mind it is at a hotel, so there will be kids. Also, note the dresscode. It is not a formal spot, semi-formal is ok, but business-casual/casual is best. Food is pretty good. Guacamole is tasty. 1/2 rack of ribs is huge. Once you're done there, finish off the night watching the game at the hotel bar across the foyer - "Velocity."

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Staying at the JW Marriott means a drive to any restaurants except those in the hotel. Over Valentine's Day weekend the Cibolo Moon was the only place that had open reservations. The service was a little slow and we had to go up and ask for our bill. The ambience is pretty loud and that made some conversation difficult (the kitchen is open to the seating area and the large glass walls echo everything). The food was really good if not a little pricey (that's expected in the hotel). Overall for convenience it was a good choice but I'll pick something else next time.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    This is a great spot if you're looking for a nice breakfast or brunch. However the Valentine's Day special left much to be desired. Very skimpy portions designed for two left my wife and me completely underwhelmed. The crab cake appetizers were good to their credit, however the portions of roasted veggies and the "not-quite-there" filet caused us both to leave with thoughts of, "I'm still hungry, where should we go?" Also, what was supposed to be a strawberry shortcake dessert, was more like two sugar cookies topped with strawberries and a dab of whipped cream. Uhh, sorry Cibolo Moon, that failed. Lesson learned. Next time we'll order from the regular menu, and save a little.

    Dined at Cibolo Moon on Valentine's Day for dinner. There were 3 menu options: A steak buffet, a limited regular menu, and a Valentine's Day 4 course selection for $75 a couple. The third option sounded wonderful so we opted for that. The best part about this meal were the mini biscuits and strawberry/jalepeno jelly. After that the food came too quickly and it felt a bit like we were being rushed through the courses. The second and third courses were tasty (crabcakes then salad) but everything was brought out in a single communal plate and we did not receive individual plates every time. The plate the food came in was huge but the food itself was not. I hope this was a isolated incident because we liked the restaurant overall.

    After avoiding meals in the hotel the first few days of our stay at the JW, we decided to have dinner (and then breakfast the next day) at Cibolo Moon. The food was outstanding and the service was even better. The sugary biscuits with jalapeño jelly were a special treat. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the chefs took care to prepare special items as needed. The price of the buffet for kids was very reasonable. Service truly was impeccable, and they helped out with anything that was needed.
