    Jonathon gave us superb service! My Gumbo arrved lukewarm.......Jonathon returned to the kitchen to make it "piping hot"........which it was when he redelivered it to me! I ordered the calamari "extra well-done and extra-crispy"........with the marinara served in a separate bowl........the calamari was perfectly cooked.......fantastic!!! It was a totally wonderful dining experience. A pleasure to come and get great service AND excellent food!!!! Carol Ramberg 8427 Monument Oak Fair Oaks Ranch, TX

  • Overdone and saucy
    Goodfood
    Dined on 10/31/2014
    Both the beef tenderloin and the lobster were overdone. The over cooking of the meat courses is compensated for by dousing them in sauce. The sauces tend to lack flavor and the various sauces all seem to taste the same. While the location and service is great, the food is poor and overpriced. I suggest hiring a new chef and improving the quality of the meat being served.

    Best restaurant for all the things you go to a restaurant fo excellent food, superb service, exciting menu, unsurpassed coffee, fabulous view, and a quiet enjoyable atmosphere with lovely background music. The wine list is great with knowledgable wait staff to advise you on meal wine pairings. I came back to Boerne bringing friends because of the Creek restaurant . Keep up the good work! I will definitely be back. Thank you for a most enjoyable evening.

  • Dinner at The Creek
    TOB13
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    We went to The Creek for dinner when we were in town for a wedding. We asked to be seated outside and we were told to pick any table. It was night time and the tables outside were very dark, so it was hard to see each other and our food (on the grand scale, this wasn't a big deal). My steak was slightly overcooked, which was disappointing because I only eat steak on special occasions, however, it still tasted good (I didn't send it back because I do not like wasting food, and I knew that steak would go to waste because it was overcooked). My husband had fish. I would recommend this place, but I don't think it was a place that would get into my regular rotation. Maybe we went on an off night?

    Excellent food selection. Nice presentation. Beautiful setting. However, our waiter could have been more attentive. Party of nine sort of isolated in a corner away from most all other guests. Based on price, we should have had better service.

    We've walked by this restaurant many time without noticing it because it's not on "the main drag" in Boerne. We went for lunch which was delightful, but dinner would be just as enjoyable. All had fish dishes which were fresh and tasty with lovely presentation without being too "fussy". Deserts are all made in house and the chocolate mousse cake with a ganache drizzle was ever so light and not too sweet. Service was attentive and waiter was very accommodating. All in all, a wonderful experience and will be back for dinner next time.

    We were very impressed with our first time dining experience at this restaurant. The staff was very pleasant and the food was amazing. We were visiting Boerne for a couple of days and I had looked online for good restaurants and I can understand why this one was rated #1. We could not have asked for a better place to dine.

    Work your way along a mile of antique and home decor shops filled with Texas style to a garden along the river. Enjoy an epicurean evening in a noticeably upscale yet casual surrounding. Talk about the evocative taste experience and just think about doing it again. You have been to the Creek Restaurant.

    I've eaten at The Creek twice and been impressed both times. I've eaten with eight people over the two visits and there have been just 1-2 items that weren't five star, but were still nothing to scoff at. Even my mother, who really doesn't enjoy food, said "this is the best meal I've had in years!". To see my mom excited about food really says something to me. Service is always fantastic. The ambiance is lovely. On Sundays (not sure about other days) there is a gentleman playing the piano and softly singing, just another beautiful touch to this gorgeous restaurant. And, I highly recommend going for your birthday, they have the piano player sing acapella and WOW! Looking forward to visiting in cooler weather and enjoying the patio.

    Most of the food was very good expecially the pablano soup they serve on Friday's. The four of us had entrees of scallops, lamb, and two kinds of fish. All were delicious - the sides were not up to par. But we enjoyed our meals non-the-less.

    A wonderful experience. The Creek's quiet Victorian ambiance was just what we wanted for our special occasion. The staff's service was just right. The food was exquisite with portions of the main course that were not too big and not too small. My wife had quail and I had the surf and turf. Both entrees cooked to perfection. I do wish the calamari appetizer had been more tender and that I had seen more steamed vegetables with my dinner. The salads, blue cheese and vinaigrette dressings were perfect. We had key lime pie which had just the right level of tartness; not overpowering. If you're looking for a quiet romantic setting that takes you back to the elegance of the late 19th century, I believe The Creek is a place you will enjoy.

    We took a group of ladies who are hard to please and everyone loved it. What a delightful Resturant. I was pleased to find that the General Manager came from one of our favorite Resturant in San Antonio that had closed. Also always, he was gracious and helpful. It was raining and he saw that all the ladies were walked to their car with umbrellas. What a hit he made. We will definitely be back.

    I liked my order of Trout Almondine. One of the two persons who ordered fish tacos complained that the fish was too thick Crème Brule with a candle was given our birthday girl for sharing and that was nice. The noise level in the room interfered with the conversation at my table of four, but the crisp white tablecloths and table decorations were very nice.

    This was our second time to dine at the Creek. The first time we were here in 2011 we thought it was a great place so when we decided that we would be back in Boerne with 3 other couples we made a reservation to eat here. Everyone was tremendously pleased with the entire package from ambiance, food and attention to our needs. We will always make the Creek our first choice for dinner.

    I have lived in Boerne 6+ years. When the Creek opened we went several times and all I can say was it was inconsistent at best. HOWEVER the last 4 times we have dined there they keep getting better and better. It is a now a First Rate Restaurant and has taken over from the 'other' First Rate Restaurant in town. Great job to the Owners. The ambience is great and so was the service and food.

    We have never been disappointed by the Creek. Very good wine selection and well made cocktails. Imaginative menu and all the dishes we've tried have been executed very well. They work. Seafood selections are limited, but excellent. We tried the shrimp and grits appetizer for the first time, but were not impressed. The sauce overpowered the dish, but if you could get a taste of the cheese grits without the sauce they were delicious. The shrimp was pretty bland. The calamari was delicious. The grilled chicken breast with capers and lemon-butter sauce was very good, and so was the shrimp linguini. The service was terrific. The restaurant wasn't full when we were there, but the staff was super attentive but unobtrusive.

    The service was a tad inattentive, but the food was great and the view of the creek very nice. It may have been a crazy night, as it appeared that there were large parties of prom goers. All of our dishes were wonderfully prepared and delicious. I do wish that the wait staff were a little more knowledgeable about the wine list, which was reasonably extensive and very well rounded. We have tried other restaurants in Boerne, but this one is the only one that measures up to the label "fine dining".

    Raul and his team were at the top of their game on an extremely busy night. We are regulars and I decided to give the sea bass a try. WOW! Fantastic. He is always on the lookout for interesting wines. I had a great NZ Sauvignon blanc. He warned me it may not be available at our next visit because the winery made such a limited production. It's so refreshing to find someone who likes to discover new wines and share them.

    We were outside, & it is beautiful. My only comment about the special is that the waitress did not say how much the specials were, and I happened to get one of them. I thought $53 was a little steep, but it was very good. The lobster tail could have been taken out of its shell, so it would be less messy to remove. The other thing was that once we paid our bill, but still remained chatting, and there weren't very many tables remaining, I hate when you are totally ignored and not offered additional water. The setting is unbeatable!

    I've eaten at the Creek twice for lunch on a Sunday. Lovely ambience and delicious food. Loved the very quiet piano player - this was a new addition since the last time I was in. Our waitress was very attentive at first, but toward the end, a bit too slow. Overall I would highly recommend the Creek for a special lunch or dinner with friends, date or spouse.
