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!
Lovely dinner - Wine recommendation was just what we wanted. Loved the food and the Butter Cake for dessert was amazing.
Excellent food and service. A true chef in the kitchen. An artist with food plating and flavors.
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!
Every single time I go, the food is excellent. the kitchen staff are perfectionist.
Nice atmosphere and pleasant servers.
Amazing wine and cheese selection. Service was some of the most seamless and attentive I have had in a while. The attention to detail was well appreciated.
Phenomenal food. We did the Prix Fixe menu and the scallops were to die for. Everything was prepared beautifully and tasted delicious. Thank you for another incredible Meal with outstanding service. Can’t wait to go back!
Our first time there and we absolutely loved it! Service is great and food is excellent!! Highly recommend!
All around great experience and meal. Don’t miss the oyster sliders!
Excellent Dinner. Great service with Mary. We always go back to Bliss!
Bliss never disappoints -- excellent food and service.
Unbelievable experience. Service was over the top. Food extraordinary.
My entree, the Norwegian salmon was equal to any I’ve had at
Le Bernardin in NYC!

A full bar is only thing missing for people who do not drink wine.
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.
Great evening. Everyone was friendly and helpful
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.
Great food, good service but too loud for a romantic dinner.
This is as good as it gets !!
Every thing was perfect !!
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.
Great service, great wine selection, and the Prix Fixe menu was extensive in terms of choices. Great!
Delicious, beautifully presented food with excellent service and a nice wine list.
The ambiance and overall atmosphere was fantastic but I feel the food was lackluster. Just my opinion.
Our food was delicious! Marci made sure everything was perfect for our anniversary celebration. Will definitely be back.
Excellent experience from the appetizers to the deserts. Service was amazing, food was tasteful and perfectly cooked. Will go back!
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.
Great service and delicious food! Always great spot for any occasion!!
Food was wonderful with excellent presentation and creativity. Service was simply outstanding in every way.
Restaurant was wonderful along with the food and service
