Loved Bliss! The food was exceptional. Love the exposed brick vibe and art, and separate dining spaces. I had the Bronzino and it was fabulous. Moist and flavorful. Also highly recommend the Hamachi appetizer-so good.

I’ve been a Bliss regular for years and the food never disappoints. It’s always delicious, particularly the Oyster Sliders and the Scallops. Great service and love the nice patio dining. Highly recommend!

As always everything was great. Waitress was very patient while we caught up with our friends at the table before we ordered. Food was yummy and we’ll definitely be returning as always. It would be nice if cocktails were added to the menu. 😃

My fiancé and I were visiting San Antonio,TX from Boston, MA. for a quick work trip, for just one night. After reading a few reviews and skimming over the menu we quickly reserved their last early evening reservation ( it is seemingly a popular spot!). The hostess was warm, and the waiter was wonderful! He graciously walked us through the menu and gave us his recommendations. Truly enjoyed the evening, and happy with the restaurant we chose!

Best experience in a while. Out of the ordinary and surprising. The service was top notch and it’s just one of the best restaurants, period. The wine selection is great although short. But the food is outstanding.

Our appetizers were delicious, but our entrees were somewhat disappointing. The chocolate dessert was excellent, but the cheesecake was a bit dry. The service was terrific and we were in a nice quiet corner in a room that was not particularly noisy.

The wine we ordered was wonderful as well.

Hubby and I often choose Bliss for our special occasions. We went there recently for a special birthday. We decided to eat on the patio for something different as we usually eat inside. Everything was wonderful as usual. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We chose items from the tasting menu and everything was delicious. The octopus, oyster sliders, barramundi, scallops, chocolate cake and cheesecake were superb.

Charred octopus is so delicious! I hope it always stays on the menu because I order it every time I go. The vegetarian bowl is outstanding. I will definitely have that again. Chocolate cake for dessert was fabulous. My friend had oyster sliders and branzino. Both were so delicious!

EVENING SPOILED: Not writing about the food. Brought my wife here for a 40th Anniversary dinner. Big deal, eh? Arrived early (5:30pm) on a warm SA evening and requested patio table as many were unoccupied. The greeter rolled her eyes (my wife immediately caught that welcoming gesture) and sheepishly informed us that we could have a patio table "...so long as we were done by 7:00pm". REALLY?!?
We did not want to feel rushed so we accepted an indoor table, whereupon they seated us in the dark, isolated end of the dining room - nobody was near us. Happy Anniversary. Memorable dining experiences are so much more than the menu. This one failed. Hope the manager reads this.

This was my husband and my first trip post lockdown. I wanted a lovely dinner. Bliss hit the spot. First, our reservations were for outdoors. I got a call telling me there was a chance of a thunderstorm during that timeframe so they moved us inside—and it did storm. My hubby had short ribs and I had the Branzino. For dessert we shared the butter cake. Only beer and wine, no cocktails but the wine list was excellent. Good selection of wine by the glass. We both agreed it was the best dinner we’d had in a long while. A great way to celebrate vaccinations!

What another Greta experience and meal at Bliss. Always consistently well executed food! We wish they would do some seasonal dishes. We missed dinning out, and Bliss is outstanding!

Great as always, had the pork belly app, duck breast with foie gras and my wife had the beef tenderloin. Great prixe fixe menu if you want to go that route. Looking forward to our next trip.

A wonderful place for those special occasions as well as days that you feel you deserve a treat. Service was impeccable, it is rare to never having to pour your wine, the waiter picked up we wanted a leisurely dinner and unlike most fine restaurants these days did not hurry us out the door. Bliss dishes doesn’t disappoint always wonderful and plated like pieces of art. For what get you feel your money has been well spent.
