    We come here mostly for special occasions & to entertain out of town visitors. It's the kind of place that feels like you're in your own neighborhood with friends. The ambiance is great for any occasion & the kitchen never disappoints.

    The food is always very good here and the daily specials make even a regular like myself enjoy returning to try them. Service is always hit or miss. Outdoor dining with the live music is always a fun way to spend an evening. They seem to always have a nice cool breeze going through the patio. I will continue to eat here on a regular basis.

    I think this place could be called a joint rather than the fine dining establishment I had expected. The first concern was when the host was seated on a stool (perhaps he has a malady) and then we were seated in a dark room with large groups, having the same server as they. I ordered the lobster and were eventually told they were out - so I saved about $35 when I opted for the duck tart (which was ok). The wine selections were nice.

    The Grill is probably our favorite, most frequented restaurant in The Northwest San Antonio area. It is consistently great food and good service. We use it as a date night or a special occasion. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their Sea Bass or Halibut with Veronique Sauce. Out of this world! The Bolognese is incredible as well. Salads and chefs specials change seasonally. I haven't eaten anything there I didn't love.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Service was slow and inattentive, food quality was not up to expectations for the price. We frequently had to watch for and flag down our waiter. Some 15 minutes after ordering, as we were wondering when the food would arrive, he came over to tell one of us that they were out of the entree she'd ordered -- and the food did not arrive for quite a while after that. My wife's "Roasted Beet Salad" included beets that were clearly right out of a can, and we saw other patrons send food back. The service was poor the last time we were there, but it was the last weekend for a Groupon, so we cut them some slack and went back – but we will not make that mistake again.

    We made a last minute decision to have dinner at The Grill at Leon Springs. Good choice! We started with an order of escargot. It was served bubbly hot and was excellent. We then split the red snapper special & paired it with a fine Malbec. The snapper was fresh & flaky and well presented. Another excellent dining experience!

    I finally made it in during "lobster fest" and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I started with the consistently delicious crab cake appetizer which was plated with a tasty Asian slaw. I opted for the grilled lobster which was nestled atop a pool of (if I remember correctly) champagne beurre blanc with some zucchini swimming beneath. I would have preferred more veggies served "on the side" as they were difficult to reach and saturated with sauce. My son enjoyed (and devoured) his thin crust cheese pizza. Our server,Roger(?), was polite and patient as I floundered over my menu choices and he checked in/offered drink and bread refills in a professional,timely manner. Great food and service and a great "date night' with my son!

    We went with my mother to have appetizers during happy hour. I was disappointed that only about 1/3 of the items listed on their on line Menu were actually available. It was too dark for my mother to even see her plate. The food was priced right, but mediocre and the service was slow. Next time I will spend a little bit more and go to Wildfish.

    The food was great. We split a wedge and the crock pot; great for two. Even though they were busy and it was Friday, I was able to get a pretty quick reservation via Open Table. Their wine list, although really good, has become super expensive. I think that less than a dozen of their wines are less than $100 and don't expect to spend less than $50 regardless. Their markup is extremely high...a lot more than we expect. They're probably marking their wines up so much because of Tuesday's half price bottle of wine night.

    We went on a Monday, so it was not crowded but had a fabulous meal. We had the rainbow trout, and the Asi Tuna Salad and both were excellent. They have a lot of nice salad options for lunch, hard to decide which one to try. Leave room for the Apple Crepia for dessert-wonderful! My son loved all the spurs photos on the wall from the Spurs & The Grill fundraiser for SA Food Bank.

    Its hard to beat the experience when the drinks are good, the ambience and staff are super friendly and the food is absolutely delicious. Salmon for the wife, red snapper for me and both were perfect. Terry, the best chef in this area, spent time with us and was a great host as usual.

    Three of us went on Father's Day and found that there was a brunch being served; no menu service was available. Our waitstaff indicated the brunch selections were wider than normal due to Father's Day. The salads, vegetables & side dishes were varied, beautiful and really nicely prepared (no question about the French influence/style --really nice). I'm vegetarian, so I was in Heaven. There were just a few protein/meat dishes; my husband said they were okay, not great -- so I surmised not as good as the vegetarian dishes. Came with Champagne (additional charge), albeit we ordered from the wine menu, which was adequate, but nothing special. Kinda crazy...there was no dessert table at the buffet. Atmosphere and service were right up there.

    Without a doubt, one of the finest restaurants in the greater San Antonio area. The service is friendly and attentive without being pesky and the food is splendid. Our food was delicious and well presented. This resturant is one of the few places in San Antonio where you can get escargots and they were great. While I prefer them served in the shellls, these are delicious served under a puffed pastry. The grilled lobster is to die for. The wine list is extensive and a bit pricey but the selections are top notch. The desert choices are numerous and all are great. We'll definitely be coming back.

    Our recent experience was very average. The duck appetizer we ordered was terrific, however, my entree, a crusted tilapia, was swimming in butter and had almost no taste. My wife ordered a veal, but was brought a lamb shank. The waiter was quite attentive after this mistake, however, my wife had lost her appetite by this time and did not want to wait 15 more minutes for the veal. It is a nice place, but for what you pay you expect a better overall experience.

    Food was great. Service attentive. The only issue was that I ordered hot tea, and requested a large pot of water since I drink a lot of tea. The only teapot they have is a one-cup pot. So, as attentive that the server was, he just couldn't keep up with my rate of tea drinking. I had to look for him and ask for refills.

I had the pork in the iron crock and it was the tastiest thing we all tasted. Rich and flavorful broth with pork cooked to fall apart goodness accompanied by numerous veggies theat was braised with the meat for a eye closing omg ahh sound from ur lips. Got to have that again.

    We selected The Grill at Leon Springs as a neighborhood restaurant for celebrating our granddaughter's thirteenth birthday. We are already familiar with the restaurant as we have lived in this area for eighteen years. We were seated in an area that reflected our choices on our Open Table reservation. Two of us selected seafood entries which were very yummy. The side salad I chose to go with my dinner was large enough to share. The greens were fresh and tasty. One member of our group had a beef entree which pleased him very much. Our waiter presented our granddaughter with a tasty desert selection in which he placed a lit candle.
