    Good was delicious however all four dishes came warm not hot. Initially the air was too breezy in the back room but Mary was gracious and took care of it. It took far too long for our first order of appetizers to be taken.

    We ate outside with the fans to help cool us, which helped though it was still quite warm. Our server was very good, lots of attention and good info. The food was lovely, well made and interesting. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!!

    We have been to Bliss several times. It is one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio. It never disappoints in service and food quality. It is very consistent and has a great ambiance. Every dish is superb! I am waiting for the dish they call ‘Pork n Beans” to come back! It is a pork shank cooked with jumbo cannelli beans; very delicious….HINT HINT😉

    Reason for the three stars was they didn’t really have a lot to chose from. They also did not have any hard liquor at all. I was ready for a tasty old fashion but didn’t happen. Food was really flavorful and ambiance was really nice.

    We tried some of the specials along with the tried and true that we usually order such as the scallops. The ceviche was so good I took an order to go; the watermelon salad was a delicious and refreshing experience. Both took their excellence from the sauce in which they were presented, tangy and tasty. The duck was pronounced outstanding as were the oyster sliders. The sorbet collection of three was a delight of fruit flavors. Our waitress was informative and helpful with suggestions that enhanced the experience. The only sour note was the less than satisfactory coffee so order it other than black. The rose wine and port were exceptional. A truly memorable experience to be repeated surely.

    If you go to San Antonio, you have to go to Bliss! Our scallops on corn grits with spinach were amazing. Our server was very patient and attentive. It was a wonderful night to celebrate a girls weekend and a birthday. Try the butter pound cake.❤️ Hope they add black tea to their menu. I wanted some after dinner but they had none. 😊

    Our server, Bret was just wonderful, to the point we spoke to the manager to compliment him & his service. His recommendations of off menu items as well as his explanation of menu items t include the wine list made our dining experience even more enjoyable. The starters, we had 3 each one was perfect the entrees like the starters were wonderful. Recommend Bliss to any that wish a superb meal, your not rushed, not pushed towards any "Item". Cannot wait to visit again, we've already recommended Bliss to others. The support staff was very attentive but never intrusive, which is always a plus.

    Wow! This restaurant had it all except full bar. Wonderful wine list and absolutely delicious uniquely flavored dishes. The octopus was amazing and tender. The beef tartare presentation in bone with marrow was savory. Enjoyed also the Manouri cheese salad with Asian pear. We ordered the scallops, short ribs, and branzino as our main dishes. The lemon citrus tart finished our meal off nicely. Located in the old Southtown of San Antonio. Highly recommend to dine here when in San Antonio. A truly culinary gem.
