Wine pairings were horrible. A separate glass of Chianti was also very poor. These bad wines almost ruined our dinner. Management should review its wine list including by the glass to insure it meets standards.

This is my favorite restaurant, I'm never disappointed. I keep returning. I love to sit in the back patio area where the music is playing. Always excellent food and service. Our waiter Lico can always suggest great choices on wine and food.

Bliss never fails to prove great food and service. Absolutely first rate. Only downside at all is the noise level, particularly in the back dining room.

Loved it! The food was very tasty. I had the hamachi crudo, scallops and the goat cheesecake, as well as the flourless chocolate cake.

Bliss is my favorite upscale restaurant. We had a wonderful meal. I ordered the bouquet salad, vegan entree and sorbet for dessert on the Restaurant Week menu The vegan meal was a large amount of food and absolutely delicious. My friend had the scallops and I shared my meal with him. Everything was wonderful. Nick was our waiter and he took excellent care of us. I highly recommend Bliss!

Noise level could be lower, sound absorbing material in the main dining room would be a good addition. The concrete floor and brick walls . . . . too loud. We are an older couple (in our 70's) so it could be just us that thinks this way. When ever we want the best food, Bliss is always considered.

Used cold storage tomatoes in a caprese salad (in August!!). So, we paid just under 20 dollars for a mealy tomato and a few pieces of moz--which was not really 'fresh' moz. Same with the vegan platter--were the artichokes canned? They certainly were briny, and nothing else was seasoned right.
We came for a special occasion and were sat in the back room, which was noisy, at a table to large we couldn't really talk to each other and couldn't move the chairs to sit next to each other. Such an underwhelming meal.

I can't quite understand the high Yelp reviews for this restaurant. I would give it a solid "average", at best. Average wine list, decent but not exceptional service, average food with very nice presentation ( I had the halibut special, my wife had the scallops) all paired with a higher price than one would expect for "average" earns them 2 stars. The restaurant has a cool look to it but the fascination with Bliss ends there. We had reservations and were initially seated right next to the kitchen (it's a small restaurant and you're never far away from the kitchen but right next to it was a bit much with a half empty restaurant). After requesting a move and granted it, we ordered the fried oyster slider appetizer which never arrived. The rest of the meal was, again, average. Wine served warm (Louis Latour 1er Cru "Beaune" should be slightly chilled), 20 minute wait after dinner for the check. Just, you know, average.

We had a great girls dinner here. We shared the baked oysters which were delicious, the caprese salad and I had their red fish. The red fish was very good, but I would try something else next time. The restaurant is beautiful and had such a neat vibe to it. I’m not sure if there were ac issues that particular evening because it was pretty warm and had kind of a musty odor inside, but these things happen. Would definitely visit again and look forward to trying other items!

The food exceeds whatever high expectations their reputation and buzz put in your mind. Every single plate is innovative even amongst the crowded New American scene, and: every BITE. Not every plate, but every MOUTHFUL is balanced in your entire palate.
And Laura is a simply exceptional server whose love of Bliss makes it feel like the fanciest friend you've ever had sharing her favorite meal with you. Atmosphere, staff, parking, service, menu, wine list, all if it is better than flowery adjectives can tell.

The only minor knock is portion size... but that is REAL hair splitting. Instead of a 10 Bliss is a 9.8. Cant wait to go back and we want to go over and over!

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.
