Excellent food. Excellent service. Very attentive. Quail and crabcake sliders were absolutely the best ever. Daily special is a 3 course dinner. Price very reasonable. Desserts made in house are outstanding. Highly recommend.

We were there for lunch. Not especially crowded, good noise level. Two drawbacks, though: I would have ordered the tuna salad, but they were out of tuna. Three of us ordered the trout amadine, which was excellent. However, it came with skin on. One diner, who is squeamish, was unhappy, since she had not asked and the waitperson had not divulged that fact.
Perhaps I overlooked it, but the website did not suggest that free parking is available at noon time and free valet parking is available in the evening. They should.

Went for brunch and really enjoyed the food offerings. The crab omelette was perfectly cooked and the hash browns that come with it were perfectly cooked. Would recommend you check out for Brunch at the very least.

Wait service was poor. Long time to get water and even speak with waiter. This continued all night. Food delivery was not smooth all night. Poured sparkling water into my half glass of regular water. Food was okay but not spectacular. Highlight was hamachi but this dish felt out of place on this menu. Brussels were soggy. Flat iron steak was cooked well but chimichurri was flavorless. Octopus and calamari starter had some good flavors but was very dry. I make better snitzel at home. Sorry Maverick.

Beautiful atmosphere. The restaurant was bigger than I expected. It is beautifully decorated. Service was great. The food was delicious. I love the a la carte menu as it is easily customizable and is great for sharing/shared plates. We had the rotisserie chicken, mac and cheese, and clams. Everything was delicious!! We will definitely be back to try more.

We come to San Antonio a couple of times a year and found this back in February when they first opened. Maverick was one of our first places to hit when we came back. It has only gotten better! The creativity of dishes and unique combinations are fantastic! Highly recommended.

Overall we enjoyed our dinner with friends at the maverick, but having dinned there on several occasions we were disappointed in the GNOCCHI it was dry with no sauce with just sour cream dropped on top. In the past it was superb.

Excellent food with unique offerings and flavors. Service was excellent although there was a wait for desert to be delivered and for check to be processed (minor issue!). All in all, one of the best meals we've had in 7 years in San Antonio weekly dining.

Again, another great visit to The Maverick...still one of our two favorite restaurants in Southtown. Shannon was our server, who had only been there for three weeks, but you never would have known she was new. She was personable, efficient, and knowledgeable. Our favorite server, Sarah, came over to the table to welcome us back. Just love the level of service we receive each time we come! Thanks for a great evening. 😊

Everyone that ordered a meat dish said it was tough. My duck was extremely tough and slightly undercooked. Over all underwhelming. Won’t go back unfortunately

The lunch menu seemed limited and we ended up ordering the chicken salad and the tuna salad hoping to be wow'd but a new flavor or presentation. When I go out for a special lunch, I want my dishes to highlight the skill of the kitchen crew and the options that usually only a professional kitchen are capable of, unfortunately we didn't choose well. I'll order something more intricate and interesting on my next visit.

We celebrated our anniversary and it was sweet of them to give us a card congratulating us on the special occasion. The food was super tasty. We had the mixed grill platter and the pork tenderloin melts in your mouth. The cheese puffs were super addicting. The chocolate mousse cake was super moist and delicious. Service was really good. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.

First, I love the decor and details- outstanding. I've eaten here three times, and each meal was very good. Last meal- we ordered several different items and shared them. The fried pickles were so good- served with a home-made "ranch" styled dressing. The mini crab sliders were cute and delicious. Also- it's worth a trip to the restrooms- each different and way cool.

Husband and I went to this restaurant on a Sunday early evening. There were 2 large tables, although, the noise level was very low. Bar area was very nice with great cocktails. Service was good. I was confused by the food. Seemed like the menu was French/Asian. Many menu items had soy or hoisin in them, including my grilled salmon which overpowered the core ingredient. Cheese puffs and pork chop fantastic. Undecided if I’ll return for anything other than an app and cocktails.

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday. The ambiance and décor are incredible. This is definitely a see and be seen place. We were both disappointed in the food. My pork chop was so dry, it was very difficult to cut and eat. The quail on my boyfriend's entrée was also very dry. Understanding that this may have been an off night, we will give it another try.

Very nice ambiance. Good service and a nice wine list. Been a couple of times. While they are extremely meat centric (with seafood) they also offer lots a veggies. As a vegetarian despite the selection, I’ve been a little underwhelmed. They have 3 vegetarian pastas that can serve as an entree. The two out of three I’ve had were not particularly inspiring. Still it is a nice place and the meat eaters seem to be happy.

I ordered mussels as my appetizer and the NY strip for my main & my husband had the arugula salad and the wood grilled half chicken. I had red wine (Rioja) my husband an IPA. Both were good. When the appetizers arrived the mussels smelled great. I asked for some bread because there was nothing to soak up what I thought would be the nice liquid in which the mussels were cooked. Didn’t need the bread (for which I was charged $7 dollars) as it was very bland and had no depth. My husband’s salad was good. Main courses arrived, my steak had nice charring but had a huge piece of fat on one side and gristle running through the middle. I probably got about a square inch or two of meat off the steak. Side were Mac & cheese (soggy) and mushrooms, also bland. My husband’s chicken was ok. We called it quits after that and decided to have a drink and dessert elsewhere.

The Good: Outstanding curb appeal. Very nice looking restaurant with a great looking bar and nice friendly people greeting you at the door and serving you food. The look raises your expectation for great food and drinks. Cheese plate was good.

The Bad: More potatoes than calamari and grilled octopus in the Calamari and Grilled Octopus appetizer. Soggy French fries. Flavorless gnocchi with a useless gallop of crème fraîche pornographically drizzled on top. Underseasoned but well cooked (though tough (no Allen Brothers here)) Angus New York Strip.

The Ugly: The bar looked so professional that my wife and I decided to order off the menu. Please don’t ask a customer how to mix a drink. Just Google it. Disappointed that the bar could not make a Cable Car. Hendricks Gin cucumber gimlet was just gin and lime. No sugar/simple syrup. Glass not cold.

Restaurant is well liked by many. I will try again in a few months to see.

The location was charming. The food was tasty, but served lukewarm. The service was slow and it took a long time to get our food. We’d try it again though. It might be a fun happy hour after work, pre-date kind of place.

This was our 2nd visit to Maverick and we went for their Father's Day brunch. The restaurant is beautiful and quite spacious. The food was very good - we had the Maverick Burger, the pork belly & coddled eggs, the Steak Frite, and the Blue Crab omelet and everything was very tasty.
The restaurant was crowded, so not much room to navigate around the restaurant. Service was a bit slow - took about 10 mins after we were seated to get water and about another 10 mins before our bloody mary's arrived. They were extremely busy and did appear to have all hands on deck, but the wait was a bit long.

overall a good experience and highly recommend for the food and the bar (all our drinks were delicious)

Amazing service & food for Father’s Day brunch today. We started with the brown butter brioche doughnut - freshly made & melt in your mouth goodness - and prickly pear mimosas. For breakfast, my wife had the braised pork belly served with cheesy grits & coddled eggs along with a spiked cold coffee. I had the duck confit hash topped with poached eggs. Everything was very wonderful, and we can’t wait to return!!
