Everything was absolutely delicious, Beef tartare to mains and veggies all the way to dessert. Fantastic wine list as well, very esoteric and varietal focused!

Twenty minute wait past reservation time. Wait staff pleasant, but long waits between courses. Probably due to many large table groups that night. Food portions were generous with much flavor. Wine is a bit pricy.

Loved the decor and the music. Atmosphere is comfortable and quiet enough to be able to carry on a reasonable conversation. Disappointed that the wine I ordered was not available - the onions I wanted in my martini were going to arrive the next day and the liquor selection was somewhat limited. Shared calamari, crab cakes, tartar and hamachi. Hamachi was the best. Tartar not enough flavor. Squid and calamari interesting but just short of enough oomph in the spicing. Crab cakes are an interesting presentation but difficult to eat. Had scnitzel which was tasty, but could have used more lemon caper sauce. There was a very small drizzle which did not allow for enough to either actually get the flavor or enough to go with the amount of meat. They use pork which is a heavier textured and flavored meat than the traditional veal, so more sauce would have allowed a better taste of the sauce and kept the pork from being quite so dry. Also had the pork chop which was moist and flavorful. Enjoyed tasting a variety of the vegetables. The french fries were much less interesting than they sounded and slightly soggy.

This was our 2nd visit to Maverick, though our first brunch visit. We arrived at 10:30, shortly after opening and needed to modify the number in our party - staff was very accommodating! Ambiance at Maverick is great - relaxed and comfortable, and our service as excellent (sorry I missed our waitress’s name). Good Bloody Mary though a bit heavy on the Worcestershire for my taste. I had the crab omelette-light and fluffy with good flavors, but it seemed a bit light on both the crab and Humboldt Fog cheese. My wife had the duck confit hash with poached eggs. Very nice presentation, great flavor, but again seemed a bit light on the duck in the dish. Overall we enjoyed the brunch and give Maverick 4 stars for the brunch experience.

Excited to try this new spot in Southtown/King William district.

I will say that the space, the food, and the overall energy are great BUT all of that was overshadowed by the tragic service we received. We were not seated where we requested and what should have been a nice, leisurely dinner reasonably paced to last roughly 90 mins took almost 2 1/2 hours by the time we finally got the check and left.

Our reservation was for 6:30 pm. It was almost 7:00 pm before we were even asked for our drink order and received our drinks from the bar (and we only ordered three beers on tap - nothing complicated); our server was not very adept at reading the table for timing. He took entirely too long to check in on our table during the evening, although he was constantly in the immediate area.

It was another 15-20 mins (so seated for 45mins at this point) before we even got the appetizers ORDERED and by then realized we needed to get EVERYTHING ordered while he was there if we were going to get anywhere, not knowing when he would return. At one point when he was near enough to hear but not actually checking on our table to see if we needed anything, I had to ask for another drink; when he brought that he removed the empty glass of one of the other diners without asking if she would like anything else - just took the glass and left.

The food, as it arrived, was VERY GOOD. I will say, the only unfortunate item during the dinner service was a broken dinner plate. When one of the entree's was placed on the table, the plate cracked straight in half...and when we could get our server's attention, instead of removing the broken plate to the kitchen to re-plate the entree again, he just brought a new plate to the table and left it for us to move food from one dish to another.

I will dine here again as I feel the service we received is NOT a reflection of the restaurant but exclusively that of our server and his lack of multi-tasking prowess.

Really wonderful experience. Has to be the best meal we’ve had in our year here in San Antonio. The meal was exquisite and the service was just wonderful, it made our night being surrounded by a great service team. Great value and great wine. Beautifully designed interior and all the guests were respectful of everyone there and kept their conversations quiet and low. We’ll definitely be going back.

This was my first and only experience with Maverick. I chose to try this restaurant based on positive on-line reviews. This was a special occasion (my wife's birthday) and we were on our way to a show at the Majestic. I was excited to try the crispy duck which is a favorite of mine but hadn't had in a couple of years. Unfortunately, the duck at Maverick was hugely disappointing! It was actually the worst duck I've every had. The thighs weren't bad but the rest of the duck, including the breast which was the more significant portion of the meal, was chewy and under cooked. It was also one of the more expensive items on the menu. When I expressed my disappointment to the waiter, he just said "sorry about that" but didn't offer to address the situation further. In addition, very little was made of the fact our visit that evening was for a special occasion. So disappointing! I will definitely not be going to Maverick again and will not recommend this restaurant to others.

Our entrees, both fish and beef, were excellent. Having two sizes for each entrée was another good feature. Service was also great, including not clearing plates until all four of us were finished. That policy is rare in virtually any restaurant today and is a hallmark of traditional service. I even complimented the server and he said, yes, that was the rule and he understood why. The size of the pieces of carrot cake were on a bit small but that just meant we had to order two for the table because it was also great.
We will be back!

Food was excellent. Service was a bit slow. Upon arrival, we indicated to our waitress that we NEEDED to be finished by a certain time. We ordered promptly, but our entrees arrived so late that we needed to rush and still left the restaurant 15 minutes later than we wanted. This caused our party to miss the opening of the show we had hoped to be on time for. Again, great food, but not very accommodating for tight schedules (75 minutes).

First time for us. Got reservations for a Sunday night hoping it would be an enjoyable evening. Food was amazing and many items on the menu we want to try on our next visit. Service was very good until it started getting busy. Surprised for a Sunday night but by the time we were served our meal it had filled up. That is when the service really slowed down. We had to ask another server for the desert menu and once we ordered it was a real long time in getting the coffee and desert. Had to catch the managers eye to ask for the bill so we could leave. So recommend going early or luck out and get a slow night, because staff really falls behind when they get busy. All being said, we had a great meal and it is an interesting place so we will return.

Excellent dinning experience. Great atmosphere, friendly staff with very attentive wait staff. My wife had a fish dish which she raves about and I had the whole crispy duck which was both tender and tasted fantastic. We had broussel sprouts, red cabbage and their root vegetables. All were excellent. We did not have wine but they have an extensive offering. I highly recommend Maverick. We will definitely dine there again.

I wanted to love this restaurant but the waiter we had was very inaccessible and we waited a long time for service. We finally had to get a bartender or hostess to take our order. Dinner Menu items were interesting and appetizing looking but fell a little short. I would try again just to see if overall experience is better next time.
