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.

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.

We visit San Antonio on a regular basis, at least once a month. Bliss has come to be a restaurant that we know we are going to have a delightful dinner with excellent service and atmosphere. Bliss never disappoints.

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.

What a lovely dining experience! Our meal was beautifully presented with a perfect blend or colors, textures and delightful flavors. The waiter had a joyful energy and was attentive to the pacing of each course as well as checking in. The atmosphere was pleasant with a comfortable amount of room around each table. My spouse thoroughly enjoyed his steak and I the vegan platter. They were even very sweet to put candles on our dessert as we were celebrating our 17th anniversary. Three Cheers!

We went to Bliss for our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. I called ahead and asked for something special and I could not have been more pleased. Sam, the Maitre ‘D, set us up with a course meal with wine pairing for each course. Mary did a wonderful job serving us and explaining the food and wine through out the evening. General Manager Dorian Mills and his team were amazing creating the food and atmosphere that surpassed all expectations. We were so impressed we made a Christmas reservation to experience it all again with our family at the Table in the Kitchen where we were invited to enjoy our desert course. Thanks so much “Team Bliss” for making this anniversary one to remember.

Went to Bliss for the first time on the recommendation of a friend and it is now our new favorite restaurant in San Antonio. The biscuits on the fried oyster sliders are melt in your mouth amazing. Scallops were cooked perfectly and ended the evening with chocolate cake. Love Bliss!

It was amazing. Our waiter Henry... Heri? Was awesome. It was our first time dining there and my brother and I came in for the restaurant week tasting menu. My brother has always wanted to try it and the tasting menu gave us an opportunity to sample several things at a price we could almost afford. We got the Hamachi tostada, oyster sliders, wild boar, scallops, cheesecake, and butter cake. The pacing of the meal was by far one of the most impressive parts of our evening. While some of the portions (the scallops) were smaller than we would have liked. We left full and satisfied. The only somewhat disappointing part for me was the cheesecake... Advertised as a goat cheese cheesecake I was expecting a different flavor but to me it tasted like normal cheesecake. Delicious but somewhat confusing.

We were a little worried arriving as we felt under dressed (website said casual... Id say the average was fancy casual..) but after sitting down and being greeted by Henri we were able to relax. He didn't make us feel bad at all that were there for the tasting menu or that we didn't get anything to drink besides water, which was a coincidence as neither of us really drink and we live in the other side of town.. So while I'm sure the wine paring with have been lovely we were there to try the food.

Unfortunately Bliss is not a treat I can afford regularly, but I will be keeping an eye out for next year's restaurant week menu as this was an experience I would be glad to repeat!!

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.

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!
