Delicious food!! A little expensive, but worth it. Our server, John, was great!!
The cauliflower and green beans that came with the whole branzino was overcooked.
Overall, a great dinner.

We were visiting San Antonio for the weekend and were looking for a place to have dinner. Thankfully, we found Bliss. We were able to secure a reservation, and we were delighted with our experience. The ambiance was lovely. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. Everything was wonderful. We also learned that Bliss does a tasting menu... which would be a great way to experience the variety of interesting dishes on the menu. If you find yourself looking for a great night out, I would highly recommend Bliss.

The food at Bliss is excellent but even better is their flexibility. My husband and I are vegetarian and they happily extended additional dinning options to us for the evening of our reservation. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderful restaurant in which to celebrate a special birthday. My wife enjoyed her soup and a vegan platter, and I had the wild boar, which was amazing. The service was impeccable, making this a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable dining experience.

I was at a conference in San Antonio. My friend, Alden, and I had a wonderful meal at Bliss, an easy walk from the Convention Center. My only quibble, I should have had a few more slices of duck in my entrée. The cheesecake was delicious.

We have already recommended Bliss to several of our friends and family. We heard abour Bliss through our son and daughter-in-law. She is a an active advocate for Bliss. That we selected the restaurant for our 58th Anniversary pleased her, and absolutely delighted us. The young man who shared time with us as he managed our menu selection processes was knowledgeable and hel[ful in guidung us through the process. More important, however, was his communication capacity and style. I want to interact with him each time that we return to Bliss.

The food was amazing. We had the bone marrow and oyster sliders to start. Both were delicious. I had the wild boar which was rich and flavorful. The demi was so delicious I wanted to soak up the remainder with some bread. The scallops were cooked to perfection with a sear on the outside and soft on the inside. The atmosphere was quite yet not standoffish. The waitstaff was excellent at taking care of things but not intrusive.

Found Bills for a weekend vacation from a google search, and was definitely pleased. As my wife and I travel we enjoy seeking out great local places to dine - and Bliss was one of those great finds.
Services was exceptional from the start, our waiter was excellent providing guidance on the menu as well as took the time to write a list of other local places to try why we were in town. The food was also excellent.
If we happen to find ourselves back in San Antonio will definitely stop back in to Bliss.

We had a wonderful evening at Bliss. It was easy to find, parking was a breeze and our meal was superb. The service staff was attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, but not pushy. By far, it was our favorite overall meal in some time across the nation. We just spent 6 weeks in Mexico and ate some amazing meals; however, this one was memorable and delicious. We can’t wait to return!

Things started out rocky as we arrived early for a drink and it turns out they have a tiny bar which was full/reserved(?) They seemed perplexed on what to with us. We would have probably left atc that point but there seemed like there was no where else to go in that area. It really sits in the middle of nowhere. Once we were able to sit at the bar and then be seated, things progressed very nicely. Our server was great. Very informative. Meals were fresh and prepared great. Charcuterie board was fantastic. Based on what seemed to a visitor to be a lack of other options, I think they would benefit from a bigger receiving/bar area.

Loved our waiter, and the food was good. My only complaint was that they sat me at the worst table in the place; literally right next to the hostess. When the phone rang I felt like I should pick it up! We got reseated, but it was Valentine’s Day, so the damage had been done right off the bat.

Went with spouse for Valentine's Day dinner and it was great. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and the music they had playing in the background fit the occasion to a T. Nice selection on the menu of options for the seafood lover or meat lover. I am not a big vegetable eater but Bliss even makes the veggies taste great.
