Our party of four ordered four different appetizers and four different entrees. Every single dish was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! The service was great, too—attentive but not pushy. We were very pleased with every aspect of this dining experience.

This is our 2nd time at Bliss and it was just as excellent as the 1st! The food is modern and exciting. 3 of us shared plates which allowed us to try a bunch of different options. Can’t wait to go back!

We enjoy the ambience and the waiters are very attentive, we sometime bring a special bottle of champagne or wine and they are pleased to serve it. The food is always amazing and changes often enough that you will always have something new to try.

Good service. Appreciated that they allowed me to order a single oyster slider so I could try it. Atmosphere was nice, but our two-top was set too close to the next one, and it was tight getting in and out without bumping the person behind me. Food mostly good, but duck was too salty. Admittedly I’m more sensitive to salt than some, but it made the dish disappointing for me. Also, my glass of the Alta Vista Malbec was not good. Just not a very good wine I guess, but disappointed that such a poor wine was on the menu.

Love the building and gardens. They have a chef’s table in the kitchen. Restored brick filling station. Very cool space. My waitress was wonderful and I had a filling vegan platter. I love Southtown. Bliss does an excellent job!

Marcie/Marcy was awesome! Best service we have experienced among our many other visits to Michelin starred restaurants.

Foie Gras was interestingly plated and the duck fat could use a little more savory herbs.

The quails were nicely roasted; however, the cajun rice was a bit dry.

The oysters and seared scallops were amazing. Hands down the best seared scallops we've had.

Everything was wonderful! Our server, Marciela, was phenomenal (just the right amount of attention and always provided what we needed in a timely manner). My mother and I had the duck and the beef tenderloin. The duck was cooked to a little beyond medium, but that didn't change it's incredible flavor and tenderness. It was some of the best duck I've ever eaten. The beef tenderloin was fabulous! It was so tender and incredibly flavorful. It truly just melted in my mouth. For dessert, we had the "pecan pie", the chocolate bar, and the coconut tres leches. The coconut was a very subtle flavor (I wish it had been a little bit more pronounced). The "pecan pie" was nice, but not a favorite - nothing too extraordinary about it - except for the apples (they were fantastic)! The chocolate bar (flourless chocolate cake) was rich and tatsy, but I thought the mousse portion was a touch too thick because it almost crumbled when cutting through it with a fork to get a bite. The caramel popcorn, bourbon caramel sauce, and coffee gelato that accompanied the chocolate bar were fabulous! We can't wait to find our way back into the dining room at Bliss!

Octopus carpaccio & gazpacho soup appetizers, duck breast & foie gras, scallop entrees with a Gigondas wine, goat cheese cheesecake w/ Tokaji &chocolate bar w/port. — friendly & attentive service, & not at all fussy or rushed. The portions were appropriate, and everything was cooked, seasoned, and balanced ideally. This was truly a phenomenal meal and a wonderful dinner experience!

The space (a converted gas station) is beautiful, the staff provides outstanding service, and every menu item we tried was excellent. We had a gazpacho, the quail, and sorbet. Portion sizes are just right, and there's a great wine list with some offbeat but very nice selections you might not find elsewhere.
