Unique dining experience the whole family will love

We lived in Europe for over 6 years and the food at the Leaning Pear shares the eclectic use of spices, fresh greens, raw vegetables, and textures with much European food.The portions are large (American) so don't go overboard. The house salad is great, the pizzas are wonderful, (The Blanco pizza... read more

This was actually a recommendation from a local for a birthday dinner...I have to say I'm glad we only came for a lunch. It's a nice spot, interesting building, and busy which should have been a good sign but for the price, was pretty mediocre. Our waitress did not check on us more than absolutely necessary (long enough to take... More

I live about 15 min away in San Marcos. I've tried lots of restaurants in Wimberely and I don't understand why Leaning Pear is not number 1. Their food is wonderful and the place is modern and full of light. You won't be unhappy with this great restaurant. Lots of GF options.

The Leaning Pear is a bright modern building, a little different than others in Wimberley. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. We ate there twice for lunch, both were delicious and we even found their "Tree House" comfortable even in the hot weather. When we tried to go back for dinner on Sunday we found they closed at three.... More

This place is a gem for lunch in Wimberley. They have a lot of outdoor seating overlooking dense woods which makes for a pleasant meal. The waitstaff is well informed, very nice and attentive. I must say that everything on their lunch menu is worth of consideration, but the BBLT with avocado is probably the best BLT available.

We were recommended this place, and so went for lunch. We sat outside, which was lovely, but service was incredibly slow. Food was nice, but nothing special.

The location was beautiful next to the creek. I had a pizza and my husband had the schnitzel sandwich -- both great! Nice service and dog-friendly patio too.

Leaning Pear used to be down the street in a smaller space. The new place is spacious and very modern looking, so it has lost some of its charm and quirkiness. The food is good, but there is a pretty limited menu. Service was good; it was kind of noisy inside making conversation difficult with a large group.

We went to the Leaning Pear two nights in a row because we were so impressed on the first visit. The leaning pear house salad is a must! We had the grouper special, the rainbow trout, braised pork sope, grilled hangar steak, Meyer lemon panna cotta, ancho chocolate terrine, chocolate cake and cookie plate. Everything was delicious and the staff... More
