Great veal chop!!
Getting better every time we dine there.
Food was fantastic and upscale. Service was impeccable.
Was not impressed. The special of the day was Grouper ($26.00). It was a very small portion, overcooked and served broken up in pieces. The fingerling potatoes (a $7.00 side-order) were soggy and seemed to have been cooked days ago. Could be that their key chef had the day off, because their cooking technique was very amateuristic. For such a pricy place, I expected much better.
Another incredible visit! 188 South is the best restaurant in New Braunfels. The appetizers are incredible! Arancini, meatballs, stuffed mushrooms, and fried monzarella are all amazing, but the Arancini is the best ever. And the cocktails are amazing as well! Best Good Friday spent having cocktails on the patio in forever!
This is one of the best dinning experiences I have had in New Braunfels! The food was amazing! The Arancini, the Bolognese, the Ceasar Salad were all top notch. The pasta was fresh and the best I have had before anywhere. The drinks were also fantastic! I had their version of an old fashioned, called the Herald, that was incredible. The service was superb! Our wait staff was knowledgeable, courteous, and gave us just the right level of attention. I definitely recommend!
Great food and wine!
Cute restaurant in the heart of downtown. Great service and fantastic, fresh food! We had several appetizers and entrees. Everything exceeded our expectations!!
Just awesome! So nice to have great Italian in a charming setting! The service is wonderful and very attentive!
Food overall was pretty good. Mushroom/crab appetizer was cold. Service was great, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. Patio is very nice.
Fantastic meal! Wonderful veal chop and mussels. Chocolate cake was delicious end to the meal
Everything was great except a small thing.
It was a beautiful, sunny evening. We had reservations. There were several tables inside and outside empty. We preferred inside. We were seated not in a sunny location inside where several tables were empty, but the darkest corner. Now, keep in mind, all of it is beautiful inside. Great art. Great fixtures and finishes. We asked to be moved to the other side which was very nice.
The food and menu needs help, but the overall experience was enjoyable.. not sure we will go back. A bit pricey for just okay.
Wunderbar!!! Great service and ambiance, and of course wonderful food!!!
The drinks and appetizers were delicious. Our service was good. My only issue was that I asked to have only shrimp ( no scallops) in my fruiti di Mare dish. I realize I messed with their proven Recipe, but instead of replacing the pieces of scallop with extra shrimp, they included only 2 small shrimp in their entree. It was light since they still charged me for a full meal. I did love the freshness of the food and my dinner was flavored well although the protein was woefully light. My lesson for messing with their dish, I guess.
Amazing experience! Awesome waitress! Delicious food!!!
We had heard about this place from friends. We were NOT disappointed. Dined outdoors and service was great as was the food. Patio is dog friendly. We will return.
Amazing! We were here for their special wine tasting event. The food quality and price were great! The chef really didn't hold back. He ventured out with unique ingredients with a twist of Italian flavors. Superb. Chad, the Manager, and his team delivered a wonderful experience. We rate 188 South at the same level as experiences we've had in high end restaurants around the world. Big applause to the new team. Keep up the great work.
This is our new favorite restaurant in the area.
We routinely drive into NB from Cibolo vs going into San Antonio.
The staff was welcoming and friendly and the food was outstanding. We had the arancini, the fish special and the veggie risotto.
The special was black drum and it was definitely among the very best fresh fish I’ve had since moving to San Antonio.
We will be back - often.
great wine selection, very nice staff. If you sit out on the patio, ask for a table away from the parking lot, there was some music from the place next door.
Great restaurant. I feel its priced very well for the great quality of food.
Nice patio and great service. Drinks and food were fantastic. Been here several times and will keep coming back
188 is getting better every time I dine there
Ordered pizza for the first time and It was delicious!!!!
188 South was a great experience. The atmosphere was nice as we sat outdoors. You could hear the live music from the restaurant next door. Our server was very attentive and provided great recommendations! We enjoyed the Fritto Misto, Shrimp & Scallop Risotto, and the Veal Chop! Highly recommend 188 South for a date night. We will definitely be back.
Best experience yet.. excellent service, food came out promptly.. I love the water carafe on each table, frees the server.. managers stop to say hello to customers. We’ll be back.
The food was wonderful, as always, and so was the service! We love eating on the patio. Such a beautiful area and you can enjoy the live music next door.
We always enjoy the food and the service. The menu is good and the cooks are open to change ingredients when necessary.
Great Atmosphere. Food was great. We are looking forward to coming back real soon.
Would definitly encourage readers to dine here. It is a quiet intimate place. They allow children, but I wouldn't recommend . It's an adult place, and I loved the small plates, and varied selections.
Nice place. Great place for a date but some items reasonable for a family dinner.
Fun night out with the a group of friends. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was perfect for catching up. Perfect way to enjoy an evening.
Great..!! Came for Valentine’s Day..
moriah was great
The service and food were great. We were checked on multiple times by the hostess, servers, and general manager. The entire staff were working hard, and it is apparent that they care greatly about a great product.
The food and service were impeccable! We were so impressed. Our waiter, Matt was so attentive and gave us great suggestions. We will be back next time we are in town.
