The service was the best, never had to wait on drinks and servers were very tentative. Great food and the environment is very speak easy. Great for date night or special occasions as they will help and provide you for that special night if requested.

We went to Bliss for our 13th anniversary and it did not disappoint. The Sashimi tostada appetizer was fresh, vibrant, and surprisingly delicious. My wife ordered halibut with squid ink risotto. The meal was too rich for her palette (the risotto was very rich). I ended up finishing the plate and loved every bite, so that was due to palette preference. I ordered the scallops and they were perfectly cooked, the spices were delicious, and the portions were restrained (which I loved). I would recommend this to anyone asking. Definitely on the pricey side, but they earn it.

An exceptional evening. We frequent San Antonio on a regular basis and decided to explore beyond our several ‘go to’ dining venues. We were more than pleased. The food was extraordinary, the service impeccable and the venue charming.

Absolutely loved the food! Had the octopus appetizer and the quail entree. Both were fabulous! Butter cake was good but would recommend the pistachio cheesecake instead. Only negative was it was fairly warm, quite surprising for a restaurant. I was in a sundress and started perspiring during the meal. My poor husband was wearing a sport coat and was quite warm. Would be nice for them to lower the temperature during 100 degrees texas heat.

Everything was delicious! Combination of flavors perfectly crafted. Service was great and the waiter made excellent wine recommendations.

Ordered Oyster Sliders and Pork Belly as appetizers. The sliders were awesome! The pork belly was good. Pork belly is supposed to be fatty but this was too much for my taste. Scallops and Duck with de foie gras were excellent. (Might reconsider de foie gras, after reading more about possible animal cruelty in its production)

As usual the food was wonderful. We were celebrating our kid’s 18th wedding anniversary. Our daughter is a vegan and the vegan entree is every bit as good as the fish or meat dishes. In fact, one day I’m going to order it for myself. My son-in-law and I had the branzino and my husband the pork and beans. Everything was delicious. We can’t wait to go back for another fabulous meal!

All the food was amazing! Especially the octopus appetizer - it was so tender you could have used your fork to cut it. It was a bit warm in the restaurant - need more AC! The servers were a bit strapped, which is unusual, but service remained pretty good but not like the norm, with every need anticipated and time to discuss menu options and wine pairings. I had to ask for water, I had to ask for the wine menu when we changed to main course - they had taken it. I had to ask for help deciding between two bottles based on my preference. They were out of a first choice beer. When we ordered dessert, no one was offered coffee. So service was a little off but we still had a great time and a delicious meal.
