Superb in every way. The baked oysters and oyster sliders were amazing. The server recommended the to best entrees as the flounder and duck. Both were great. The goat cheese cheese cake was wonderful, as was the salted caramel Panna cotta.

We arrived before the evening rush on a Saturday evening and the experience was very peaceful. The food was outstanding from the appetizers to the main course to the deserts. Our server, Marcy, was wonderful. Very helpful with the menu, very responsive and offered us many recommendations for things to do in and around San Antonio - we asked and she was happy to help.

One of my favorites when staying in San Antonio. Love the changing menu. It's been about a year since last visited and was not dissapointed. The oyster sliders were delicious. Also tried the corn fritters. Reminiscent of Mexican street corn. I had the vegetarian main which was an eclectic mix of grilled veggies, red quinoa, and fresh veggies. Can't wait until next time.

I’ve been coming to Bliss for years and this was my most disappointing experience. My family and I came from out of town to celebrate my younger brother’s 21st birthday. I had called well in advance to make sure we could have a specific table in the back area by the patio. I was assured when I called that it would be taken care of. When we arrived they clearly had not taken care of it and had given our table to a larger party. I’ve worked in restaurants before so I understand how it works, but you also should take care of your loyal-long time returning customers. It was a lovely evening but was frankly tinged by this experience

The ambiance at Bliss was awesome. I loved the lighting and decor. However, my husband and I left before we ordered entrees due to the menu. It was a bit too eclectic for our taste without a true theme to the menu. The food we did order was fine but nothing that seemed worth the price. I am sure bliss appeals to some palates but I’m not up for octopus, quail, or duck. Chicken or a gourmet could go a long way. Especially when the only beef dish was $80. Yikes.

Absolutely loved Bliss! The food was amazing and I can’t wait to go back in the future. Ordered the corn tempura and sea scallops and definitely didn’t have any regrets. The environment was very intimate, I wish I could’ve experience the outside seating cause the lights looked beautiful from afar.

We sat outside and were served by the delightful Mary. We sat out there because it was WAY too noisy inside. Noise is NOT a good thing, by the way. Your survey suggests that it’s good because “energetic.” Nonsense. Loud is cheaper for the owner but hell on older folk.

Bliss is consistently one of the best restaurants in Texas and our favorite in San Antonio. Signature dishes of oyster sliders and scallops are always excellent, and redfish entree was also very good. Service is impeccable. Reservations a must!

Wonderful evening with my wife and we enjoyed the octopus as an appetizer and since we were drinking white wine, we stuck with fish. Redfin and fish special with a bottle of a recommendation from our knowledgeable and friendly waiter.

The food was good, but its not justifiable for the price. Our bread had a piece of porcelain we knew of there could have been more. All in all the food was good the overall experience was so, so and therefore not interested in returning.

A well named restaurant since eating there is a blissful experience. A good place to go to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. Everything was delicious, but I especially have to compliment the apple salad with grapes and strawberries. It was light and fresh and presented beautifully. The service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive.

Food was excellent, but very rich. Service was good. Price was a bit high for food served, but not bad. Noise was a little high for my taste, but was manageable. Appetizers were better than the entrees.

We celebrated my 23 year old son's birthday. All four of us enjoyed the meal. We had Wild Boar, Redfish, Pork & Beans, and Quail. The Japanese Tostados were very good for the appetizer, and the pecan pie and butter cake for dessert were very tasty.

The food was incredible. My guests were from LA and used to fine dining. They commented that the food was some of the best they had ever tasted!!!
The service was equally wonderful!
The noise level, however, made conversation difficult.
