Great food service and ambience as always only downside this time was time taken to order with fries which had sat for a while and chatted Brussels. Still very good but clearly something not clicking as normal in the kitchen . Been many times and hope it’s a one off

Overall a good experience but be warned before you get seated that if they seat you in the back room the kitchen is extremely loud. During our visit there was a guy barking orders to the kitchen staff the entire time. Not great for trying to have a conversation or speaking with the waiter. We would be in the middle of discussing a topic and you'd hear this guy start yelling for menu items. If we were in the front it would have been a much better experience because we wouldn't have heard the kitchen the entire time.

We are Texans visiting San Antonio from out of town. We chose Maverick hoping to find something unique that would couldn't otherwise find elsewhere. They delivered splendidly. The menu is filled with inventive dishes with mostly familiar ingredients. More proof that SA has a vibrant food scene far beyond its old reputation of only great Mexican or TexMex. Very professional operation. Highly recommended.

Dinner was a disappointment, but there are a lot of good things about this restaurant. The restaurant itself is cool. The main dining room is quaint with a dark sleek ambiance. The layout leaves enough space between the tables that I do not feel I am dining with other parties. Our waitress was knowledgeable and willing to answer questions about the menu. I am a demanding "drinker" and require constant refills. Toward the end of the night the refills lagged, but I would say service was a plus overall. The other diner enjoyed his pork chop and had no issue with the potato and leeks. His french onion soup was a little bland but acceptable. The real problem was my fried pastrami sandwich. Essentially my sandwich was a Rueben. As is traditional, the bread was dense, but the chef chose to use a thicker cut of bread. Exacerbating the thick dense bread was that the slices were stale. I gave up on the bread after a single bite. I tried to find portions that were edible but failed. The pastrami was fried I suppose, but it tasted and chewed like old shoe leather. l believe the sandwich purports to have sauerkraut and thousand island dressing. While the sauerkraut was present, it was almost made indiscernible from the pastrami by its over cooking. The thousand island dressing was just absent. I do not think the Rueben was prepared properly, but even fixed right I do not think the sandwich works. I have eaten here multiple times. I like the menu. It is versatile and gives the diner a lot of flexibility. I have had good food here, but most of it is ho hum.

Excellent dining experience with a wide ranging menu. Whatever you are in the mood for, has to be on the menu! Quail, French Onion Soup, Pork Confit, Pasta, Salad, Mac n Cheese, and an excellent cheese plate were all enjoyed by our group. We had a small chocolate dessert that was tasty and a great way to wind down a hearty meal. Cocktail menu is small, but we special ordered our usuals and they were excellent and strong. Over the last year, this place has really turned into a dining destination. 7 dollar valet doesn't hurt either!

Went here with a colleague to try something off the river walk. Ended up being one of the best meals I’ve had in San Antonio over the past 4years. Everything was fantastic! Only thing I would complain about is the crab cake is just a itty-bitty bite and it was so fantastic it needs to be a full size crab cake.

Enjoyed most of the meal and the service was great, but they could not get my pork chop cooked to my liking. Asked for medium well and it came out way too pink to eat. Sent it back and it still was very pink. I am okay with pink but not cool to the touch. Lastly they gave us the wrong check and when I pointed it out there was no thank you. Saying that I would try it again and order something else

We came with a group of 12 for my birthday dinner and had a wonderful time. I have also been with a group of 5 and just as a table of 2. Every time we’ve come we have greatly enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks, food, and service! Highly recommend! Also parking can be tough but the valet service makes it easy & convenient.

Love every time I eat here! But last night was absolutely delightful!! We chose to eat at the bar due to time constraints on our part. Our bartender Drew took such good care of us! Expedited service that was not rushed! Magic in itself! And to boot, he was very attentive and gave the absolute best service! We might choose to eat at the bar more often! It was just delightful!

This is the fourth or fifth time that I’ve gone to the Maverick and I really want to like it. It’s beautifully designed an a great atmosphere but on this most recent visit we had to send food back because it was room temperature when it should’ve been hot, we had to wait a long time for both our drinks and our food. The restaurant was busy but not crazy. We gave this feedback to the mgr who asked how we were enjoying our experience. I’ll give it another try and hope it improves.

The restaurant is beautiful. The service was outstanding. Unfortunately the food is really mediocre. Our grill meat plate was overcooked,, under-seasoned. The pork belly was grotesque. The cut was too fatty and should really be taken off the menu. The Brussels sprouts were way to salty, and lastly the mushroom pasta was pretty good. It’s too bad because our server was very knowledgeable and passionate about the restaurant.

Some of the food was pretty good (potato pave, brussels sprouts, duck). My porchetta was undercooked to the point of being mostly inedible. I couldn't cut it easily, even with a steak knife. I left most of it on the plate. I mentioned it to the staff and there was no apology or offer to take it off the bill. Service was fairly sluggish. The space is well appointed, and it seems like there's potential here. I don't know if I'll be back though.

This was my fifth or sixth meal at Maverick. Each time I take someone new from in town or out of town, they are very impressed with the food, the happily engaged crowd and the look of the place. The noise level is just right for me: busy enough to feel the energy but easy for me to hear everything which is said. Looking forward to going back soon.
