Great Mother's day brunchUnique and tasty take on the American brunch standards. My wife had the lumberjack, I had the Lobster benedict. Her honey ham bacon was amazing. My lobster cakes were flaky, crispy, meaty, delicious. Her strawberry-lime-pepper mimosa was new and different and fantastic.
Parking is available on the street right at the restaurant. Service was top-notch and fast. The host was helpful, gracious, accomodating even to those that showed up without reservations. Can't say enough great stuff about this place, highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOrder the fried chicken!Even at brunch (when it's not on the menu), you can get their amazing fried chicken just by asking for it. Sure, it takes a few minutes, since they're not officially serving it, but you don't do yourself a favor by not ordering.
Just be sure to tip the highly enthusiastic staff (and, if it's brunch, try the house strawberry-and-other-things mimosa. It sounds weird-black pepper?--but tastes great!)5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a Portland resident I amAs a Portland resident I am a little hard to please when it comes to dining out. I enjoyed this restaurant for a number of reasons. I could get in! I found it difficult to choose among the entrees, all of which sounded delicious. I prefer a smaller menu with 5 dishes well done to a larger menu with many poorly executed meals. I also thought the service was particularly friendly, casual and efficient. For high end food they weren't taking themselves too seriously. I hate precious attitude. These guys are down to earth. My only regret was that though we were quite satisfied with our meals we would have considered dessert if something like fruit sorbet were available. Surely with all the ice cream places now in San Francisco....5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING LAMB, deliciousOUTSTANDING LAMB, delicious veggies, cooked to perfection, loved the half glasses of wine!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for visitorsMy partner and I took my brother to Mavericks. My brother is a well seasoned traveler and foodie from D.C., so impressing him with something new isn't easy. Maverick's combination of ingredients and flavors did the trick. My brother had the Alaskan halibut and called it "fantastic." I had the rissotto and my partner had the lamb and both were phenomenal. The waitstaff was impeccable... knowledgeable and ever present but not interferring. The restaurant's casual atmosphere made it easy to relax, a lovely experience overall. This was my first time at Maverick's and it certainly will not be my last. Bravo!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy part and I had a wonderfulMy part and I had a wonderful time at Mavericks.

Small spot but would definitely return.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here with my wife forWent here with my wife for her birthday and we were very happy with the choice. Hadn't been previously but a friend recommended so we decided to check it out. Overall it was very good, but a couple of the food items marred it from being excellent.
On the plus side, the service was excellent with a friendly and helpful waiter. The wine list was very good, and we liked the ambience & general character of the restaurant. What let it down was the food. Generally high quality (the octopus salad was a good choice) there were a couple of mis-steps, such as a slightly dry pork entree and a beet ice cream for dessert (not good).4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent creativity and greatExcellent creativity and great tasting food. Keeps the menu fresh while holding onto old favorites like the fried chicken.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had family visiting andWe had family visiting and decided to come to Maverick for an early Sunday brunch. The food was outstanding!!! We all left there with very happy tummies.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try Brunch spot!Simplicity at it's finest. A friend recently went and had brunch and raved about the Lobster bread pudding. Intrigued I headed there for brunch and will say i will go again!!! Start with cream puffs: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. The Lobster bread pudding is out of this world AND the potatoes served along side are toasted to golden perfection. I am going again very soon!! Service is friendly- Katheryn rocked!!! Suggested yummy wine to go with my feast!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPopular for good reason. I'dPopular for good reason. I'd recommend a freshening of their excellent menu to keep interest. Cocktails are good. Not inexpensive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back again!Food was inventive and delicious. We'll be back again!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently wonderful, delicious!We love going to Maverick for dinner and for brunch. They consistently provide an awesome dining experience. The sommelier is extremely knowledgable about their wines and willing to answer many questions about pairing wine with food. Outstanding!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a nice place with aIt is a nice place with a limited menu. The menu can work for some (if you are into fried chicken), but limited for vegetarians (why, oh why can't "foodie" and "vegetarian" go together? Of course they can, but are underserved because of limited imagination). The service is attentive, the space is nice, well kept and quiet, and has a nice, welcoming but not outstanding feel to it. The "snacks," esp. the herring, are rather nice. The appetizers seemed to be poor value for money. Pleasant, all in all.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMInventive and delicious deviledInventive and delicious deviled eggs and cornbread fried green tomatoes were wonderful starters. Fried chicken is definitely one of the best around! The fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and milk is one if my favorite desserts and simply comfort food done perfectly. Go on a Monday and enjoy the wine by the bottle savings, too!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
