I was very excited to have dinner at Feast, and very disappointed at the turn out. I ordered the rainbow trout, the fish was edible but the healing pile of “cut” vegetables on top was overwhelming. Some pieces were small, some far too big, they were raw and didn’t compliment the fish at all.
My boyfriend ordered the flank steak, which was covered in enough salt to make it almost unbearable to eat. I had a bite of his and could feel the large amount of salt grains on the meat.
The restaurant was not honestly displayed online and I was a little surprised when we arrived. I didn’t expect plastic chairs and a dead silent room where everyone can hear your conversation.
Our server was friendly and we enjoyed her, however even she wasn’t enough to convince me to go back.

Made the only Open Table reservation available at 5pm and arrived at an empty restaurant. Cute place with modern clear acrylic chairs, very white interior,and a nice patio if it weren’t 100 degrees! Very blah hostess seated us at the table right next to the bar but it was wobbly so we moved closer to the front room. Waitress was nice but not very good at describing the menu for first timers. “It’s kind of like Tapas size but not”. Ordered the corn croquettes-the best thing we had. Served in a pyramid with a jalapeño cream sauce-they were very good! Also ordered the carrots-decent flavor. The flank steak and chicken skewers were good but not too impressive. Playlist was good-80’s and early 90’s tunes.

My girlfriend and I have been going to feast for our anniversary every year for years now. We loved it. Our latest experience there was nothing less than shocking. The menu has changed. Feast is no longer a tapas bar. This change was a huge mistake. Now, this restaurant's menu is just like others. The food we did order was too salty and not impressive. I honestly could do better myself. Millennial waitstaff chatting each other up, staring at their phones, dropping what must have been 6 different plates/glasses and presenting the restaurant like some dumb bar. Restrooms were dirty -this says a lot.
In years past, this restaurant would be packed at 9pm. We've had to wait for tables and didn't care because the food and experience was so good. This time, there were hardly any people eating there on a Friday night when the first Friday artwalk was going on! Unbelieveable to us but with the menu change and the millennial slackers running the place it isn't really surprising that nobody goes there.
My girlfriend and I were devastated to see what has become of our beloved Feast.

The Location is great, the mood is awesome, and the food is amazing, as while all these things make a great restaurant there is one thing that can ruin the entire thing and that is the service.
The servers were all very inattentive, they were rude, stuck up, and extremely slow. The first thing that annoyed me was me having to wait 35 min for a table even though I had made reservations so that I didn’t have to wait those 35 minutes, our server only took our order and we never saw him again, we literally had to go pay inside because we had been waiting over 20 minutes after we finished our meal, he never filled up our water and it seems like everyone had all the same issues with all the servers. the Hostess was the opposite, she was very nice, respectful and very polite. Also saw a server wearing overalls with no undershirt, that’s disgusting I don’t need arm pit hairs or sweat in my food.

Feast is one of my top three restaurants in San Antonio. The service is always courteous and professional, and that isn't something I encounter a lot here in SA. The food at Feast is absolutely spectacular. Their menu changes according to the season, and there are a few things that are always on the menu. I have had seasonal offerings and the menu staples, all have been spectacular. My favorite right now is their chilled beet soup, with golden beets and dill. So refreshing! The other item to definitely try is the lamb chops. Best ever...yep, I said it!
I heartily recommend Feast for dates, business meetings, girls night out...but not for families with small children.

Used to love this place but it’s gone downhill. The menu changed and most of our favorites are gone. The food during this visit was lackluster. Service was ok. We sat outside and were pestered by flies so the waitress set bug spray on the table. We probably won’t be back.

Used to be a great neighborhood place w a cool vibe and good eats. The ambiance is fine still, the crowd waning and it must be due to the food. Ordered the “WT”: biscuits were burnt on the bottom and hard as rocks. The over easy egg only had one side hit the frying pan. Unfortunately it was served with that side down which resulted in a mouthful of something similar to a cold symptom. Not pleasant. So sad.

The food was good, but the service was terrible. We could not get information on specials but clearly some servers knew the info and others didn't. Our server said it was her first brunch when asked if the orange juice was freshly squeezed or if there was decaf coffee.

Luckily I ordered the donuts which were delicious but that was because I over heard another server.

I blame management for this, they should staff better.

Always been a favorite place but they changed the menu and took away the tapas. Half of the food was good but the other half wasn’t. They played only Journey songs for about an hour until we asked if they had a thing else. No complaints about our service, our server was attentive and did a good job.

Brunch is always a hit for everyone at Feast. Service, not so great. Drinks were “meh”.
I reserved on OpenTable and called ahead to be sat in the sun room by the bar, when I got there my friends were in the darkest corner of the restaurant, I spoke to the hostess female and asked about the various open tables in the sun room by the bar or anywhere else with natural light for that matter, she lied in my face and said all the tables were booked. We did move to a brighter table but EVERY single table I had asked for (and called ahead for) was never seated. We were there until brunch was over and the tables stayed available.

Service was very slow. I ordered a burger with no cheese and it came with no cheese and no bacon. I pointed out the lack of bacon to the waitress and she said they ran out. Meanwhile, a table next to us got three sides of bacon after we were told the restaurant was out of bacon. Many flies all over the restaurant. Terrible experience.

The menu wasn’t honored. We received fingerling potatoes instead of fries, no onion on burger, hair on one plate in potatoes, the lettuce looked like it was picked out of a salad. We were told no omelets and no donuts available today, on Mother’s Day. When we asked about fries and onions, we were told they were out. Also told they don’t have mayonnaise and mustard. A very strange experience today. Lots of available tables but they were turning people away.

First, we had to wait quite a while for our table, though at least half the tables were empty. Then, we had to wait for water and then our waitress. Waitress took food and drink orders at same time. The food arrived immediately after the drink, quickly. Waitress quickly put down the food and left. I had ordered blue berry pancakes, the only pancakes on the menu. I didn't see any blue berries. The pancakes were enormous, but tough--I needed a knife, which I didn't have. I noticed the table next to me had pancakes with actual blueberries on them, a normal size and nicely garnished. We asked several waitstaff to send our waitress. Told I a saw no blueberries, just one strawberry in the pancake. I told her that if there were no blueberries, she should have informed me. She disappeared and came back with a small bowl of blueberries she said she found at the bar. I told her the pancakes were runny in the middle, so she asked if I'd like something else. I told her I'd have the French toast. Only French toast on menu was strawberry pistachio. I think I even pointed to the menu item. They came with no strawberries or pistachios. Then I saw someone else with French toast loaded with strawberries and pistachios.

The outdoor patio is charming and I could hear what the conversation was at the table easily. It was Mother’s day and they were short staff. The food took quite a while to come but we were informed that there was going to be a delay. Coffee was served cold. When we asked for hot coffee it came back the second time still cold. The food was well prepared and everyone enjoyed their selection. Despite some minor issues I think this place is worth paying a visit!

Went to Sunday brunch on Mothers Day. Not as busy as I had expected; only about half full. Wait staff was very friendly, but it took about 45 minutes to get our food, even though it wasn't very busy. The waiter said they were understaffed, and brought us a free app to hold us over. Inside seating was noisy. Food was good, not great. I ordered steak and eggs. The steak was well seasoned, which was odd because the eggs lacked any seasoning at all. The steak also had gristle, making it very difficult to cut, which was ashamed since the flavor was good. The breakfast potatoes were bland. Food wasn't to my kids' liking. If I came back, it would definitely be without the kids.

My family and I went to Feast for Mother’s Day. It was supposed to be a relaxed and special brunch that I had planned well in advance. We had a nice table outside and then it went down from there. Our server took 12 minutes to come by and take our drink order. Once we finally got the Mimosa’s, they were wrong. But we kept them because the frost ones took so long. It wasn’t even that crowded and this is NOT a new restaurant. So, no excuses in my book. We waited ONE HOUR AND TEN MINUTES for 2 burgers and an egg sandwich!!! I asked for a Manager and was told there was not one available. The table in front of us waited forever also. The table behind us sent their food back twice. My husbands burger had cheese on it. He asked for no cheese twice. My sandwich was cold. The potatoes- mushy. Wow! What a disappointment my Mothers Day brunch turned out to be. Barely an apology from the staff. Everyone seemed lost. Wow. Major bummer for such a lovely place.

Kitchen was under staffed. I don’t believe our server was actually a server but rather a hostess. Another server noticed the delay at our table and came to make apologies. Hoping it was just an off night for them. This place came recommended. Food was good,service was bad. I’d try it one more time.

What a perfect night at Feast!! Our party of 5 were seated on the patio on a rare cool crisp night in May. Our waiter was new but was trying hard and we didn't mind because we wanted a leisurely evening. We were impressed with the 2 bottles of red wine we had, including the value price. The assortment of starters we ordered were delicious and big enough for all of us to sample. Our entrees were impressively tasty and sized appropriately, including the steak. We took our time and never felt rushed and loved everything about it. The bill surprised too--in the best of ways--being well below what my son from out of town who treated us had anticipated. Such a delightful place with very tasty and interesting dishes. I look forward to returning.

We waited 2 hours to get our food. We were advised by our waiter to order ASAP as the kitchen was backed up. We weren't too hungry when we arrived so we were not too concerned. However, after several drinks and 2 hours had passed, we were quite hangry. The food was a disappointment, no presentation, just looked like they threw my steak on the plate along with some cauliflower. The taste was not exceptional and definitely not worth the high dollar price. We would have sent it back but after waiting 2 hours, we just wanted to eat. We were disappointed that we weren't offered any discounts after this terrible service. I used to love this place and it was my go-to whenever I came back in town, we won't be coming back and I will not be recommending to friends.

I’ve passed by Feast multiple times and always thought it looked interesting so for my birthday I thought I would make reservations for my friends and I to celebrate. Upon arrival we checked in and were told that we had we had to wait for our tables to be put together. It ended up being 30 minutes before we were seated which is ridiculous considering I made a reservation. It was especially irritating since we could see available tables that just needed to be cleaned or pushed together. On top of that our service wasn’t that great either. We had two servers for our table yet it still took a while for them to bring out our drinks and take our food order. While they were busy I feel like for the amount that you pay for the meal and added gratuity (we had a party of 8) we should’ve received better service. I witnessed another customer walk out after waiting 45 minutes to be seated even though they also had a reservation. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They made a day that was supposed to be special and fun very irritating and disappointing.

30 minutes to get drinks, an hour and 20 to get food. Drinks all came out separately, and 3 people were served their food 10 minutes ahead of our 4th person. Food is fantastic when it finally arrives, but possibly the worst service we’ve ever experienced.

The food came out super quick, kinda oddly quick... like they wanted us to hurry and leave so they could have the table. I didn’t haven’t much time to visit with my family because the food was there wayyyy too quick and in our face

There is a big issue with the service, looks to me like there is bill padding going on. When the server came to our table we ordered 2 coffees and brunch drinks, server said SA restaurant regs prevented her from serving us drinks unless we ordered an a appetizer, while I never heard of this in SA we order pancake sausages (very good), during the meal we each had a coffee refill; after we finished the meal and had the check I noticed we had been charged for 4 coffees; I brought this to the attention of the server and she said they charged for coffee by the cup total of $14 ($3.50 each); I paid the bill and saw the manager on the way out, I mentioned the issue to him and showed him the receipt, he said that was incorrect, it was unlimited refills but did not offer to refund the overcharge. He did not act like he was surprised or concerned by the issue which I thought was odd. I checked when I got home there is no reg on ordering appetizer before being served drinks. Now that I have thought about the situation it looks to me like there is a management condoned process in place to pad the bill for their customers. Pay close attention to your check, the food is very good, but I will not eat there again.
