It was our 39th wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed!! We all had a wonderful meal! The onion rings are incredible; the green beans, trout and homemade ice cream were all great too. One person and our table got the steak and he was very pleased.....it was cooked just right and very tasty.

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.

My boyfriend and I had an excellent meal this weekend! The ambiance was warm and cozy, yet lively, but in a good way. We were very pleased that we had an 8pm reservation, yet when we unexpectedly arrived 30 minutes early, we were well received with no issues, and shown to our table. Our server, Joseph, was very knowledgeable making excellent recommendations as well as alerting us to their new Sunday brunch availability! Well done!! The lamb stew- which was the special of the evening was superb- dancing with varying flavors that didn't disappoint! The crispy duck was delightful; cooked and seasoned just right! The profiteroles were mouthwatering with the exquisite flavors of goat cheese banana gelato soaring on my taste buds! The only suggestion we would have would be to season the calamari a tad more, as the octopus was bursting with spicy goodness. Overall, we plan to make another visit soon...

Fantastic! The decor and ambiance was wonderful: intimate but warm. The staff was so friendly and professional. Then there was the food...the butternut squash soup was amazing, the lamb special was fantastic and we wished we had saved room for dessert. I will definitely go back when I am in San Antonio!

Maverick sets the bar very high in every way and excels. The menu is varied and alluring in its offerings and preparations. We enjoyed everything we ordered and look forward to trying more items when we are there next time. Maverick is upscale and casual at the same time. It is our new "go to" place in San Antonio.

Overall, great experience but server could use a little more training. She approached the table without a smile, on me tionnof her name or a “welcome to The Maverick.” Instead, she went straight in to can I get you something from the bar. I think she had good intensions, just needs more training. No one asked if we were celebrating anything special... we were celebrating our 5 year anniversary, so a nice “happy anniversary” from the server or hostess would have been a nice touch. Just want to see this place do well. We will definitely be back!!

We had high hopes for this restaurant. It’s in a nice space and has a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, that is all I can say that is positive. The food was terrible. The menu item called grilled calamari and octopus was actually 4 small pieces of grilled octopus and a plate of deep fried calamari which seems like it was frozen, not fresh. Sent back because we didn’t want it fried (since menu clearly said it would b grilled) and they came back with a different version of the dish which was actually worse. The potatoes in the roasted potato side dish were raw and tasteless. Mussels were terrible - could not get them out of the shells and tons of grit, flavorless broth. The parsnip truffle purée was very sweet and the pasta with mushrooms was mushy and bland. The trout was the only thing that was really edible and it was average.

This is my second time to Maverick. First time we sat at the bar and have a great time. Good food good service good cocktails.
This second time was with two other couples. Busy Friday night. Seem to like the kitchen might’ve been overwhelmed a bit. Who took almost an hour to get there, which wasn’t so bad because we were drinking and having a good time. However, two of the orders were incorrect. One dish had lots of onions which was not mentioned on the menu. One dish that promised “calamari and octopus grilled vegetables“ actually came with fried calamari. The waiter said calamari was always fried and that was just our miss reading of the menu. The steak tartare was excellent as well as the Fried-kale salad. Overall, still a good experience which I would recommend to friends. We’re gonna try again soon and find out if it was just a fluke.

We booked last minute through open table , first the open table menu and prices were off by at least $4 per entree

Second the ala carts was right down to bread on the table

The entrees were poorly sized and I left hungry

Single cut pork chop was smoked and flavorless

Potato pave at $7 was ridiculous and tasted like nothing

What a wonderful hidden treasure, a real surprise when we drove up viewing the simple exterior of the restaurant only to be blown away by the fantastic architecture and design of the interior. Equally surprising was the attention to the detailed knowledge of our server as to questions and recommendations Veronica provided us about the menu. Food items were great and brought to our table without being rushed. A hidden neighborhood gem that we will return to often.

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.
