Our dinner was gratis as we had won a contest through the Time Beacon record. The food was very good. I enjoyed the short ribs and mashed potatoes. We had to wait a long tine for the main meal , however, and would up taking most of it home. The crab cake was tasty but lacked a true crab meat flavor. my husband liked the Sole special. The waiter was friendly and attentive until we had our main meal. He never returned to ask how we liked it.

Service was extremely slow. We got there at 6:00 and didn’t get our entree until 7:30. Wine was accidentally spilled on me and little concern or compensation was provided. Food was so-so

We ordered 2 entrees from the specials of the day. They were delicious and generous portions. The service was attentive. Partitions were used to separate tables. There is also outside dining with heaters available. Not my first time at Bliss and it won't be my last.

We had to wait half hour after our reservation time outside in the cold. We were finally sat at a table right in front of the door which was the only entry and exit so every time the waiter went to the outside tables the cold air blasted at us. I had to wear my jacket in the restaurant. The calamari and crab cake were good but the grilled chicken on my sandwich was charcoaled. I couldn't eat it. The brownie for the sundae tasted like astronaut ice cream. Im not sure exactly how a brownie was even made with that texture. It was crunchy and dry. I couldn't eat that either. The restaurant was pretty inside but small. I maybe would go back for a happy hour occasion but probably not for another dinner. Overall it was ok.

We really, really, really liked Bliss. We were concerned at first because we had to wait in a cramped space for our table, but the wait was brief. Our server was friendly and helpful, which meant a lot to us. Appetizers were bacon wrapped dates (surprisingly delicious), crab cakes (as expected) and a Caesar salad. Dinner was two filet mignons, a veal chop on special, and a salmon entrée, all cooked to perfection and served hot. Dessert included what my wife said was the "best crème Brule ever" and then she said she had the "best vanilla ice cream ever" that was on my apple crumb dessert. High praise indeed. We will be back to Bliss, we really loved it. I'm almost sorry to say I did, only because we've been going to the Curry Club for years (which is also great) and we should have made it over to Bliss years ago. Thank you for a wonderful night.

The new dividers made it very cramped and crowded-dividers do not protect from COVID-19. It was too crowded.

Bliss Restaurant
Responded on March 21, 2021

So sorry you do not like the dividers we installed. Unfortunately we need to have them up because of the current situation. As all of the states start to lift some of the restrictions on businesses, hopefully we will be able to remove some of the screens soon and make for a more pleasurable dining experience for you. Also, as the weather starts to warm up we do offer plenty of outdoor seating for those that are not comfortable dining indoors. We hope to see you at bliss again soon - Stay Safe!

It is difficult to decide which to rate higher...the food or the service. Both were outstanding. I hadn't been to Bliss in many years. Just never got around to it. But this is now one of my favorites.
The menu at Bliss is the kind that gives you trouble...you just can't decide what to order because everything sounds delicious. And everything we had exceeded expectations.
In addition to the outstanding food, every member of the staff was friendly and attentive. From the Hostess to the servers, they all made us feel like they were truly glad we were there.
Service...Food...Presentation...and a perfect Martini...All 5-Stars.

Always enjoy going to Bliss as it is right around the corner from my house... it’s a little neighborhood gem. This was a busy Saturday night, and I appreciate the staff doing their best during covid times but I didn’t enjoy dinner with all of these room dividers between tables. They used to use large plant and those were so much better! Plus, plants help keep the air clean naturally! I felt claustrophobic and every time the wait staff came to the table, they were practically going to knock them over. Food temperature was also an issue. My food was lukewarm. I didn’t send it back because it was a busy night, but my short ribs were delicious and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his rack of lamb. Despite some issues that can be worked out , we’ll definitely dine there again.

Thank you so much for dining at bliss! Just wanted to let you know that due to covid we are not able to use the plants as dividers for the tables - Once things get back to normal we will definitely be going back to the live plants. We hope to see you again soon!

It's clear they've removed tables to comply with covid. And they've placed rice paper screens between tables. But if you're seated on one of the benches, there's nothing between you and the person seated on the bench at the table next to you.

And I'm sorry, those tables aren't 6 feet apart.

Umm...ok, I love Bliss and the food is great and loved to go pre pandemic but it was surprisingly crowded on Saturday when I dined with 3 friends. I am vaccinated so wasn't issue for me but could be for others. The space is small so I am not sure it would be a great choice for someone who is concerned re: covid. My dinner and drink were awesome. Service is great, staff very pleasant and accommodating. But I feel I need to be honest and if I was not fully vaccinated I would have left.

At first glance, the restaurant was seemingly perfect; however, the music that was piped through the restaurant did not match the ambiance... it sounded as if the club and dance floor were about to open! Divider screens are placed in between each table, but every table was full and extremely crowded! In this day of Covid, it does not seem as though management is taking 50% seating capacity very seriously. The bar was also packed, as people were sitting shoulder to shoulder. Overall, the food was good, the service was excellent, but again, the music was not what you would expect in a seemingly classy restaurant. After Covid, I do believe we will go back and give it another try in the future, but not before... too crowded for our comfort!

I assure you we are taking Covid serious-we are very proactive - ventilation, changing filters AC/Heat units, disinfecting the entire restaurant daily, staff washing hands frequently, sanitizing tables&chairs after each use. At no point was the bar on Sat "packed" - we have dividers for the bar itself - the most people at the bar at one time Sat was 8 - we had turned away many for the bar - i always tell everyone you have to feel safe no matter where you go - i do hope to see you in the future.
