Everything, eat all of it. All of it. Especially the desserts.

There is absolutely nothing bad about this place, from the one of a kind ingenious menu items, to the friendly atmosphere, attentive servers and extensive wine list.

Only tried dinner so far, looking forward to lunch!

Music too loud, already out of 1 lunch enteee at 12:30 but what we had was great. The labneh on the hush puppies seemed too sweet.

Food was superb. Every course was presented well, was hot or cold as appropriate. We really enjoyed the white musroom salad. The hush puppies were incredible. Would definitely recommend and would return.

Loved this restaurant. The balance to the dishes was great. Just enough fat, acid, spice. Unique menu also. Not just another of the same. Wine list was a little limited but both the white and red we ordered where good. Prices are not too high for the quality of the food and service.

Eat the beet salad! It's incredible. We also had the steak frites and seared tuna salad, both big winners. I would've asked for the hollandaise on the side but other than that loved everything.

We did the "feed me" menu and it was much better the first time we went. This time, we were a bit disappointed with the entrees as they lacked variety and were not as tasty.

We ordered the Feed Me option — customized just for us, except that every other table in the restaurant seemed to be having the same dishes. Everything came individually out as a mini course. Most reviews stated that 6 courses would be served. I wonder if the fact that dish after dish remained uneaten by our group of four was the reason we were so generously served 8 courses. The beet salad was outstanding. All other dishes ranged from just okay (the pasta) to inedible (rubbery, fishy tasting skate). Even dessert failed to live up to the hype: an okay coffee ice cream served alongside house-made, dry-as-toast donuts. A disappointing meal.

Best meal I’ve had in San Antonio. Great creative chef with solid fundamentals as well so the food is not just trendy fluff. Chefs/owners, manager and service team are very gratuitous and professional.

My wife and I went for our 30th anniversary. It was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We ordered the Feed Me menu item. We got six courses all chef's choice. We had so much fun trying items we might hot order on our own. Everything was wonderful! Watching the chef and the kitchen staff work was like having a floor show with dinner. The service was friendly and attentive.

All of the dishes were outstanding with one exception, the char which seemed undercooked and mushy. But the other dishes which were so unique and flavorful more than made up for it—the hush puppies, mushroom salad, pasta w penne sauce, and other seafood dishes all were excellent! The desserts were good too. (Donuts and strawberry shortcake). And the house red wine met expectations. will definitely return!

We had reservations for two on Friday night at 8:30 PM. We were promptly greeted upon arrival, but our table wasn't quite ready. I believe the group(s) before us were camping; not the restaurant's fault. They offered us complimentary glasses of wine while we waited. The noise level was a bit high, but that's to be expected for such a small dining area. The waitstaff was extremely professional.

We ordered a lot, and the items were spaced out just right. Every dish was nicely presented to us. The trout caviar, sweetbreads, beet salad, mushroom salad, bok choy, and pasta (forgot the name of it) dishes were all great. We especially loved the southern fried quail and dry-aged Wagyu steak. The trout on the menu was unavailable, so they substituted with arctic char. It was cooked perfectly, and they even made the skin extra crispy for us on request.

This was definitely some of the best food we've had in San Antonio.

The beet salad and mushroom salad were wonderful as usual. We ordered the fried quail (outstanding), chicken and dumplings (very good) and the shrimp toast (the shrimp were over cooked and the dish lacked flavor). Overall a good experience, but the shrimp toast was the first boring dish we have had there.

our first visit will not be our last. This is a real find. Wait staff are efficient and very knowledgeable about menu choices. We did not feel rushed or pressured. My wife and I ordered off the menu, rather than the multi-course "Feed Me" tasting menu. The skate and the Phried rice were delicious. Wine selection was limited, but our server found a California white which matched our request, and we were quite pleased. Make reservations well in advance, this is a very popular restaurant and spaces fill very fast.
