The menu is too limited. It was a special occasion. Made reservations in advance and they sat us all the way in the back next to a couple and their screaming kids

A very upscale yet modestly priced venue...wide variety of apps and entrees.
From bison meatloaf to scallops to pan seared redfish and even a giant chicken fried steak.
Beautiful and dramatic atmosphere.

The pork belly and jalepeno grits were fantastic -- I could have made that my entire meal. The wine list is decent and the menu is creative. The service staff are well trained and professional -- the only reason I rated this as 'fair' was because it was very busy and we waited quite a while to get our order taken -- but this was okay, as we were not in a rush and used the time for business talk.

The establishment was close on January 4th 2018, for renovations. I was thoroughly disappointed as, I did not receive a phone call to let me know. Imagine arriving for a birthday celebration and to your surprise, the restaurant is closed.

Was excited to visit the hotel and try this restaurant; however, excitement turned to disappointment. First $100 for shrimp and grits and red fish entree was totally unacceptable. Shrimp was good but the grits lacked flavor. The Red Fish was tasty but green beans kind of skimpy. $20 for a whiskey and $15 for a specialty tequila drink was a little high. Too expensive and mediocre food. Very disappointed it did not live up to our expectations. We'll head back to other restaurants. The hotel was beautiful.

Here for conference. Great wait staff, very helpful and knowledgable. We shared 2 appetizers and split an entree because we wanted a good overview. We had the Burnt Ends (fantastic) served with great home made corn to tortillas and the house made biscuits and strawberry/jalepeno jam. The entree was chilli butter coated red snapper. The flavor was incredible, which our waiter said it would be. The kitchen actually split the fish for us and served us separately which we had not asked for. Would definitely recommend.

Enjoyed our time at Cibolo Moon very much. The buffet which all in our party chose was a great delicious variety of different foods. The main course, the salad bar, sides and desserts were presented in a beautiful arrangement appealing to the eye. The servers seemed to be misinformed on what was on the buffet but their attentiveness in their service made up for their misinformation.

Had reservations at 1030 but did not get seated until 11. Had people come into town for a wedding and was doing brunch. People didn't get to eat because they had to leave since the restaurant took so long with our tables. They were not busy either having plenty tables available

Had a fun buffet supper at Cibolo Moon on Fourth of July. Good variety of foods. Our server, JP, was very friendly and efficient. Lots of families with children were also enjoying the evening. The price for the meal was reasonable but the drinks are pricey. Would recommend and will go again.

Food was excellent! Service was sloooow. Clearly he had too many tables, because when he came by, he was very good. But the very long absences were a big negative.
There is a lot of noise from the landscape project going on right now, so if they are working on it...maybe sit inside.
We love this restaurant. Food is always delicious. Just make sure the server isn't spread too thin.

I was there for brunch. My food was good but I was really hoping for a cup of coffee but I need almond or coconut milk. They offered me soy but soy is not good for me. I'm just a little surprised that in today's culinary world at a large "international" clientele restaurant they don't offer coconut or almond milk. A minor complaint but I really would have enjoyed a cup of coffee with my breakfast.

Mother's Day with the whole family went very well. It was noisy and busy, but the food was great, though it took some searching through the multiple serving tables to find all the full range of selections. Great option at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort.

I was there for business, the food was very good, regional, and consistent. I had a number of meals there this week, tried a good sample of the menu and was pleased with everything I had. Staff was very attentive and helpful. My only negative comment was that the music was a bit loud for a business dinner, but it was not a large distraction, overall, I would go again and bring friends

To our surprise Cibolo Moon was closed for lunch during the Texas Open....although we had a reservation, which I made online I was not notified. I apologize for not having names - but a very pleasant young man accompanied us to our table, which we were the only patrons having lunch:)
Our waitress was beyond SUPERB and went out of her way to apologize for the mix up. Couldn't have asked for an awesome lunch date, which we look forward to each year while attending the Valero Texas Open!!! Thank you!!!

The menu is very limited. The food does not present well. It is SO overpriced for the quality of what you get. All the good is so bogged down in spice you can't taste it, which is good, because it wasn't cooked very well, didn't taste good, and was served barely warm.

We had a reservation for lunch at 1.30 pm. At 12.30 pm Cibolo Moon called to tell us that they were only serving breakfast that day and they stopped serving at 2 pm. We had planned lunch as a 70th birthday celebration and were badly let down by JW Marriott. The voice mail left by the restaurant was very garbled and impossible to understand so we had to call the JW to find out what was said. It will be a long time before we try having lunch at the JW Marriott San Antonio again.
