This was the worst experience I have ever had in San Antonio. Service was AWFUL! We barely saw our server Rene and had to track him down for the check. He then charged us the wrong table's bill and we had to wait a while longer to get it fixed.

I’ve eaten two times at Feast. I have to say, I do not understand what the hub-bun is about. First, the menu listed on various apps was not accurate to the menu last night.

Second, the food was charred, over-salted, over-peppered. We started with the sourdough, mine was charred beyond recognition. Then we had the meatballs with stroganoff sauce. The meatballs were tasty but lacking seasoning in the meat. The sauce was completely over-salted. I understand using various ingredients to break up a rich dish but pickles and dill were off-putting. I would think peppers would fit better. All I could taste on the salad was pepper. The lamb chops tied for the best item of the night with the peanut butter pie. The potatoes served with the lamb chops were coated in salt and pepper. The peanut butter pie was very tasty but needed chocolate not cocoa to break it up.

Third, the service was awful, slow, inaccurate, and ill-informed. The waiter was continually asked to bring out extra plates and silverware as we progressed through the meal. I had two glasses of water and was given the wrong wine for tasting. When i received the correct wine he never returned to check or ask if I wanted a glass. A friend at the table asked him which rosé was drier and he didn’t know. She also asked about the Chardonnay (buttery) and Sauvignon Blanc (citrusy)selections and he didn’t know those answers either. He did recommend some items on the menu when asked but only to list ingredients and say if the dish was tasty or not. When dessert arrives for the table you expect side plates and silverware to either come out ahead or with the dish neither happened we had to wait about five minutes and we finally got the attention on the hostess and she brought us plates and silverware to eat our dessert.

Fourth, the music is so loud you have to strain to understand your table mates, the waiter or anyone else not sitting next to you and talking into your ear.

Overall not a fun dining experience.

While the food was good, I do not like the new menu. The tapas fair was much more appealing. Not one entrée made go "I have to that". It was different than the tapas menu in which it was tough to make decisions.

We learned that they no longer service their tapas style menu. According to our waitress they had changed their menu 2 weeks ago. This was not an issue, but it'd be nice if the restaurant was up to date on revising their website. We had a reservation at 7:15 and we didn't get seated until 7:50. I understand it was Valentine's Day, but the restaurant should understand their limitations for reservations. We proceed to be sat and our waitress from the beginning was not on point. I'm not sure if she was tired, but she was negative from the beginning. My mother and fiancé ordered their meat with specifications and both came back well undercooked. Our waitress said "oh this always happens to me I have the worst luck." Let me give you some feedback as to why this happened: she never saw the food being delivered. We received our food from 2 different runners. It took her 5-10 minutes to come check on us each time a delivery of plates was scheduled to be sent. Two of us got our plates first that were fine, then the other 2 had issues. They could never report the issue. Either way, you must be on your A game when you have a special occasion. Our waitress delivered our bills and charged us for bread and an extra beer. The manager came to check us on when the food was wrong. He is very millennial and does not know how to engaged in customer errors. His offering was a free drink, which was fine, but really laughed off the errors. He had no presence nor apology. Mind you the receipt didn't reflect a comped drink but rather an EXTRA drink. Our waitress argued that we ordered bread 3 times. FACT: We never ordered bread. She brought us one order, then they refilled our bread and gave us 3 breads for 4 people. We needed 1 additional bread and asked. They brought us out an entire new bread order. We didn't ask for that so why would I want to be charged. IF I was going to be charged she should have provided a disclaimer. She also said we ordered three beers! I don't like scams!

We spent our Valentines at Feast and it did not disappoint! We shared the meatballs and corn fritters to start and they were both to die for! Then we both had the flank steak but subbed cottage fries for the side and that too was scrumptious! Their queen martini hit the spot as well! Service and ambiance were both impeccable! Can’t wait to go back! YUM!

I would still recommend anyone to eat at Feast because the food is quite delicious. I'm just a little disappointed that the menu totally changed. I loved the shareable tapas style menu. We went because we saw the menu in the website, only to get something completely different when we got there. Coming from North Central area, it isn't the closest drive. So I definitely would update your online presence.

We went fully ready to order mussels, brussel sprouts, fish tacos, and for pur egg allergy friends, the salad and beet dishes that were listed.

I understand the menu changes, but this was far from what we were expecting and our egg allergy friend was very limited in choices.

Feast was fun! The hostess was off-putting but our server was great. We went for Restaurant week and chose off that menu. I love my selections but my husband was disappointed in the entree (pork shoulder) and his cocktail (the King). I had the trout (DELICIOUS) and the Queen cocktail was amazing. As far as the value goes our bill was still tremendous even with the restaurant week specials. Good for a special occasion but for the $$ I would have appreciated more attention to flavor.

Tried Feast on Wed. Of Restaurant Week. 1st course I had Grandmas Super Salad which was very good with light vinegrette dressing. My wife ordered “very good guacamole” which was bland at best even when mixing in the accompanying salsa. Basically it was nothing more than smashed avocado and sorry to say that we discussed openly that HEB guacamole off the shelf was so much better. Main course my wife and I both had Ancho Chile Pork Shoulder-meat was exceptionally tender-however this seemed to be due to the excessive amounts of fat. I understand that meat with some marbling of fat will be more tender however this was excessive as at the end of the course I had a pile of trimmed fat about one fifth the size of the original pork shoulder. (My first bite of that course was about a one inch square that was no meat just pure fat.). My daughter had the trout that was cooked perfectly although she did run into a couple of small bones which can occur with trout in the finest restaurants. We also ordered a side of “Simple MacN’Chz” which was the second best Mac and cheese I’ve had at a restaurant—best was at The Smith in midtown NYC. Deserts were very rich but good, warm chocolate chip bread pudding served hot in iron skillet and caramel chocolate torte was also rich but good. Service (or kitchen staff) was somewhat lacking as there was at least a 15 min wait between end of each course and delivery of the next. This occurred on a Wed. Night between 6:30-8:00pm when restaurant was half full.

We went for restaurant week and when it took almost an hour to get our third course dessert, the manager told us, "We have over 100 people in the restaurant tonight, so your dessert is delayed." And then, we never saw him again...we got our bill 20 minutes later from our server and our desserts came after that.

This was my 3rd time to Feast. They recently changed the style of the menu and menu in general. Kitchen was a bit slow and we missed some sides but it turned out ok because we were so full already! They ran out of the torte/something happened to the caramel but overall, not a bad time.

Restaurant week menu. Meatballs were great, the Trout dish was way to salty, the mixed greens served with it needed some kind of dressing on it. But the Chocolate caramel tart was inedible under the chocolate. I couldnt cut it with a knife! Caramel was so hard it would have broken my teeth. That needs to go. And it was in no definition or a a tart that I could find.... Doorstop maybe. Have to revisit soon and hope for better execution of the dishes.....

The waiter was great and the food amazing. I had the flounder and my friend had the pork, which was the tenderest + so flavorful. We also had the guacamole + chips (yum). The bread pudding + chocolate torte were to die for. So good that we thought we could just return again for the desert. Love the new menu Feast!

We showed up a few minutes early to check in and were told there would be a wait. No big deal so we went to wait outside. About 10 minutes later I went back in to see how much longer and was told our table was given to another party and we’d just have to wait longer. The seater was clearly overwhelmed and was being rude so I just asked if we could sit outside. They took us out and we waited for another 10-15 minutes for water. Thankfully the support staff was helpful, otherwise I doubt we would have gotten any service at all. Our waitress finally came over and took our orders and wasn’t very pleasant. We got the large mimosa for the table and waited for the strawberries that were promised on the menu to arrive but were told they weren’t included with that kind of mimosa. Our food finally arrived more than 30 minutes later plate by plate, also brought out by the support staff. We didn’t have silverware, napkins, or complete meals. The waitress continued to be very standoffish with us as though it was an annoyance for her to wait on us. After all the good things I’d heard, I’m very disappointed in this experience and won’t be coming back. The sentiments are the same for the other 4 people I dined with.

I was excited to try this restaurant! It was extremely busy when we arrived on a Saturday evening and we were told our table for our 745 pm reservation would not be available for 30 to 45 minutes. There was no room to wait at the bar and outside, the only heaters they had operating were at tables that were being used. We just tried to stand out of the way. We were finally seated, our orders taken and after 30 minutes, we still had no water brought to us, as we requested. We asked our server again and she apologized and said they would be right out. After another 15 minutes, my husband went to the bar himself to get them. Our food was delivered and the appetizers were very good. Corn croquettes and meatballs. Our dinner was good, however, the sides were not outstanding. Mediocre at most. All in all, we were there for 2.5 hours The ambiance would be fantastic if the noise level was lower. We don't need to return.

Appetizers were promising but it was all downhill from there. Our ribeye steaks cake out charred to perfection and ice cold! So cold the butter wouldn’t even begin to melt. Sent the steaks back. Flank steaks had the taste of old oil and the filet was drenched in lemon so much so it is all you could taste. Service was slow and no one waiter was in sync. Main course took forever in the meantime we still had some salsa left from our appetizer with no chips. The waiter asked if we wanted more chips and we said yes... well they never came. Potato side was good but have to say after that experience we will never go back... they did remove the 2 ribeye from our bill since we barely ate them. Even with that I wouldn’t want to be disappointed again. It was all around horrible.

It was a cold night and I wanted some hot tea with dinner. The waiter stated sadly that "Feast" didn't offer hot tea. When he returned and asked if there was anything else we wanted, I joked that I still wanted some hot tea. He repeated apologetically that they didn't offer it, but 5 minutes later he brought a large cup of delicious peach/peppermint tea that he said he found on a shelf behind some other ingredients. That
over-the-top in terms of trying to give a customer a good experience. I was grateful.
