Always consistently good food, service and cocktails. Perfect for a date night or friends get together. A real neighborhood gem. When in doubt, just go.
Everything was great ! Crispy lentils, steak,chicken,warm dates , peanut butter pound cake!!
Great meal!!! We had a little bit of everything and if we would have had room we would have tried the rest!!! Loved the panko pimentos cheese- and the stuffed squash was killer!
We are always look forward to our visits at Periphery. And we always leave full & very happy. The food and staff always make us, & our pup, feel welcomed. A true neighborhood gem.
We just had appetizers. The corn bread, the beef and barley soup were excellent. The warm date and Gouda cheese was a tasty surprise. We have decided to frequent the restaurant and try their different dishes.
They roast a delicious chicken. Their greens with pickled veggies was a well-balanced side. A must if you dine here.
Service and food were amazing. This was our first visit and Periphery will become one of our go to restaurants! John was a great server and we visited with the Chef before we left! Thanks for a great New Years Eve!
Food and service is outstanding. Best restaurant experience we’ve ever had. Chef really cares about his food and customers. Highly recommend this place.
Monte Vista people this place is perfect and right in walking distance!
Enjoyed a New Years Eve dinner. The pimento cheese appetizer was outstanding. Then we split the pear arugala sunflower seed salad. So tasty! I had the gulf snapper and my wife had the roast chicken. Both outstanding. The desert was a peanut butter pound cake. Sounds great and tastes even better. Great experience all around!
There really are only 3 entrees, a fish, a chicken, and a steak. Each entree is alone on the plate — so there are no composed dishes. Prices seem high to start with, and by the time you try to put together a complete meal the prices get very, very high. Chicken was way over salted.
The food just seem very incomplete.
Dinner before a show at The Tobin.
Best food experience we’ve had in San Antonio hands down.
Limited menu, however, Periphery does what the do extremely well. Good value for what is offered. Good neighborhood spot. Nice to have a full bar and an adequate wine list...could expand.
Always love eating here! Andy is one of the best servers in town. Mark knows how to turn simple ingredients into great dishes. Looking forward to the ChristmasEve meal!
I went for lunch. Salad was drenched in dressing and tasted bad. Not sure why waiter didn’t ask when I left 75% on plate. Friends had sandwich and both were plain
Great quality food, with a welcoming hometown feel.
Chicken was awesome! Risotto very unique. Looking forward to returning.
One of our favorite restaurants in SA. Outstanding food and a terrific atmosphere. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed the creative dishes so much we went two nights in a row. We had the smoked bbq catfish with 2 of the most delicious sauces! Such an interesting/lick the plate kind of fish. Seriously. We also had the smoked roasted chicken which my husband said is the best he’s ever had. And the delicious salad made with nectarine and arugula with red curry vinaigrette. Just so subtle and delicious. I could eat it every day! But the polenta crusted pimento cheese with bacon jam was so unique and so addictive I don’t know if I can make it a week without it! Finally the fresh cast iron cornbread is to die for. Ordered two! Each night! Perfect each time. We will be going there every week... regulars. Taking friends this weekend. Ok. This young chef is one to watch. I’m saying creativity like I haven’t seen in ages. Not anywhere. We recommend!!!! See you there!
We were excited to try Periphery because it’s in our neighborhood, and it has great curb appeal and good online reviews. If only they met our anticipation with service and food to match their ambience. We were early diners on a Saturday night and — maybe this is their front-of-house model — but no one greeted us when we walked in the door despite only a few occupied tables at the time. We ended up walking to the bar to get seated. We noted the two waiters on the floor were also serving as host and greeters as the night went on. Very awkward way to greet/seat guests. We started out with Paloma cocktails while we waited for our apps. The Palomas were flat in flavor — all Topo Chico fizz and no fresh grapefruit flavor. Redemption point: The gimlet we had later during dinner was the highlight of the night. As to the apps, the cast iron cornbread with “ranch” butter was pedestrian. It had no flavor, sweetness or moistness and the butter was no help as it was flavorless too. The lentil salad, while pleasant to the eye, was salty and otherwise flavorless. It needed acid and herbs to punch it up. Our entrees of rice/bean risotto and smoked half chicken did not rescue the flavorless cocktails and apps. The risotto had an off-putting flavor of too much cheese and spice in the sauce that did not get along together. The chicken was cooked very well but, like the lentil salad, was heavy on salt. For $100, we could have enjoyed a better meal at many other restaurants in the area. That’s a shame. Periphery has the location and ambience to be a great neighborhood haunt.
Definitely one of our favorite restaurant. We are so lucky to have this gem in our neighborhood & we always look forward to every visit. Food and service are always on point. Thank you again and keep up the great work.
My first visit and I will definitely be back! I love the atmosphere! The service was outstanding! The food was a combination of good and great. Ceviche was great. Smoked chicken was great. Orzo was great, but a little runny. Lentils were good, bordering on great. Cornbread was good, just a bit dry. It feels like the chef is still finding his niche. I encourage him to keep it up and look forward to what's to come!!
We went for restaurant week and were so satisfied. The precoctail was delicious. We got the wine pairings and they were a generous pour for only $15. Also, the menu is small which always suits me.
Delish...can’t wait to go back. Fully recommend, but go early since it gets pretty loud inside.
This is a neighborhood place, but well worth it. Everything was beautiful & delicious. The peanutbutter pound cake is the best.
This was a restaurant week visit, our first time there. It is a relatively small restaurant with a bar. Our table was ready, our order was taken promptly, and food and wine were delivered to the table at a very nice pace. Nothing was rushed, but it was not too slow. The cheese appetizer was excellent. The steak mains were very good. The dessert was a peanut butter pound cake, which was quite tasty, but the paired bubbly rose was not a good fit with this. Something sweeter, like a moscato would have been better. The menu is limited, as it should be for a place this size. All in all, we enjoyed it, and we will return.
Tried Periphery during Restaurant Week on Wednesday. The pork meatball/burratta (not on the regular menu) was excellent, as was the polenta crusted pimento cheese. The Chicken Salad with pickled okra was outstanding. The music was a little loud that interferred with conversation. The wine menu was unusual, but the beer menu had some interesting choices. Look forward to trying this restaurant again as they change the menu!
We went for restaurant week and I enjoyed the menu. Started off with a grapefruit cocktail, then had cornbread with an herbed butter (divine). Followed up with the chicken salad on toast (very fresh), and then had the ratatouille. The ratatouille was a bit salty and soupy for me - would have preferred it to come with bread. The peanut butter pound cake was a little dry, but still tasty. Had a great time here - wouldn't hesitate to come back!
I had a wonderful experience at Periphery. It was my first time eating there and I have been wanting to try it for a while now. Restaurant Week seems like the perfect opportunity. While extremely tasty, one of the dishes wasn't quite to my particular liking, so the staff was quick to exchange my order. Exceptional customer service! The meatball and mozzarella were absolutely fantastic. The cornbread was delightful. I was even treated to a taste of the cauliflower soup, which I will be back for!
We visited Periphery during Restaurant week to take advantage of the $35 per person menu and try it out. The food we had was wonderful, very tasting, with some innovative touches. The peach and arugula salad was delicious, as was the ratatouille with spicy chickpeas. My husband had the polenta crusted pimento cheese with bacon jam, which was very different as well as yummy, and the grilled steak with oyster mayonnaise, to die for! The only issue we had was main menu was short on meat ($8 extra for the steak). We also had sweet potato mashers with truffle, delightful but $7 or $8 more. Of the two desserts we got, the peanut butter pound cake was better. We will definitely go again!
Excellent all around great food. Chef came out and introduced himself. Andy is an excellent waiter! We'll return for sure!
Out of the box renderings of some of my favorite dishes, expertly executed. A rather long wait between the cold (appetizers) and the hot dishes, but turned out to be well worth it. Can't wait for them to open for lunch!
Small, shareable plates
Unique combination of food and flavors made dining experience at this boutique restaurant a fun experience.
Hands down the best meal I've eaten since moving to San Antonio from San Francisco, CA.
The food was especially flavorful and perfectly seasoned. The chicken was moist and tender, the brussel sprout and argula salad was a delight in every crunchy bite and the cornbread, okra and risotto were favorites, too.
I plan to be a regular here and highly recommend Periphery.
Good food. Not very big selection. Nice decor atmosphere. Prompt waitstaff
Delicious and creative menu. Dishes meant to be shared. Very attentive service.
Nice small plates very good device.
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful! Will definitely go back many more times!
Great food, great place. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was our first time to dine at Perpiphery and the food was very good. The menu is limited so if you are going expecting a large range of selection, you will be disappointed. Portions are not huge so you want to try several things as they are unique. We shared all the dishes with our table mates and enjoyed the variety. Menu changes so what you see on the website may not be what is on the menu. Great neighborhood place!
