Bronzino and scallops were outstanding!
We are tourist from Europe and wanted a restaurant away from the river walk. It was the best choice we could make. Absolut great.
Lovely evening. Delicious dinner. Excellent service.
Excellent service , all the food fresh and so tasty !!
Everything was wonderful! Our server, Marciela, was phenomenal (just the right amount of attention and always provided what we needed in a timely manner). My mother and I had the duck and the beef tenderloin. The duck was cooked to a little beyond medium, but that didn't change it's incredible flavor and tenderness. It was some of the best duck I've ever eaten. The beef tenderloin was fabulous! It was so tender and incredibly flavorful. It truly just melted in my mouth. For dessert, we had the "pecan pie", the chocolate bar, and the coconut tres leches. The coconut was a very subtle flavor (I wish it had been a little bit more pronounced). The "pecan pie" was nice, but not a favorite - nothing too extraordinary about it - except for the apples (they were fantastic)! The chocolate bar (flourless chocolate cake) was rich and tatsy, but I thought the mousse portion was a touch too thick because it almost crumbled when cutting through it with a fork to get a bite. The caramel popcorn, bourbon caramel sauce, and coffee gelato that accompanied the chocolate bar were fabulous! We can't wait to find our way back into the dining room at Bliss!
Octopus carpaccio & gazpacho soup appetizers, duck breast & foie gras, scallop entrees with a Gigondas wine, goat cheese cheesecake w/ Tokaji &chocolate bar w/port. — friendly & attentive service, & not at all fussy or rushed. The portions were appropriate, and everything was cooked, seasoned, and balanced ideally. This was truly a phenomenal meal and a wonderful dinner experience!
The space (a converted gas station) is beautiful, the staff provides outstanding service, and every menu item we tried was excellent. We had a gazpacho, the quail, and sorbet. Portion sizes are just right, and there's a great wine list with some offbeat but very nice selections you might not find elsewhere.
Absolutely fabulous foodie place
Fantastic small place with great food. Great deserts also.
The food was fantastic! The best quail ever and the special of prime bone in ribeye was cooked to perfection. This was my first dining experience at Bliss, but I will be returning.
Amazing experience! We tried the tasting menu and were very pleased. Would definitely recommend it but without the wine pairings.
This is a 5 star review because of the FOOD and STAFF, the food was great (Prime Rib) and the staff was extremely helpful, they were very friendly/attentive all through the evening and helped me surprise my date with a minor request I had for her dessert.
The only things I can complain about is that the parking lot area is a little scary, dark, not pretty... during evening hours you can't find any signage, it took me a second to figure out where was the main entrance to the restaurant since it was so dark.
The restaurant is not as big and fancy as I thought it was going to be, it was just nice, they gave us the table we requested in the back area facing the big patio (June it was too hot to seat outside, even in the evening).
They have great food and staff, but the place itself did not feel special and it takes me a while to get there, so it's unlikely I would return.
An excellent experience as we celebrated my husband's birthday.
Excellent food quality as always. Fun and inviting atmosphere.
Absolutely amazing in all respects. Great food, wine selection, service and ambiance. Can be a bit "energetic" (loud) if there is a large group next to you. But once they left, it was perfect.
Great food and service! Would highly recommend! Great wine list also
Quiet evening on the patio at Bliss 🍷🍷
The Food and service was excellent! We had oysters Rockefeller, corn fritters, bone marrow for appetizers, all excellent. Everyone loved their entrees, it was a great night!
Súper agradable y recomendable. La comida muy rica y el servicio inmejorable
Not enough positive words...FABULOUS. From the second we advised of our reservation we were treated like we were the most special. Awesome way to celebrate combined birthday/anniversary. The food...OMG. The pork belly appetizer, scallops (biggest and most succulent snd flavorful I have ever eaten), anniversary chocolate medallion. Our trip from
chicago to experience this was truly worth it. I wish I could frequent Bliss once a month.
Wonderful as it always is. Everything just top notch, and right on. Thank you for another wonderful night.
This was our first time there for dinner and everything was just perfect! We can’t wait to take our out of town guests for dinner when they arrive.
It's a nice place, but the food is not outstanding and the service was lacking for an upscale restaurant. Redfish dish was way over sauced.
This was the second time at Bliss for our anniversary. It was good, but unfortunately not the best. The fish we had was one of the specials and was actually “fishy” tasting. It was cooked perfectly, but was overpowering in “fish” taste. We had a giant prawn with the grits that was amazing! They had new drinks they were trying out that were excellent for the summer. The bone marrow appetizer wasn’t as great as we remembered, and the butter cake was good, but seemed heavier than last time also. Overall this is a great restaurant and possibly our expectations were high after our first visit. The fish is really what killed it for us this time. Fortunately it was a special and not always on the menu. If you haven’t been, it’s worth going.
I will be brief... If you are coming to San Antonio then you MUST dine at BLISS. Wonderful food and great ambiance and engaging wine list.
We had early reservations mid week and sat on the patio. A rare occasion for late May in Texas! Mary was delightful and informative about the menu items and portion sizes. The wild boar was truly “Blissful”! We were with friends who knew the owners aunt. He and his wife graciously came out and spent time talking and taking selfies. I’d like to go back and try the Chef’s Table.
Top notch restaurant with outstanding food and service. Bone marrow, octopus and scallops are cooked to perfection and plated beautifully. A perfect place to experience bliss.
Great food. Great experience. ;)
Excellent! Our server was very helpful in making recommendations. The flavors were amazing. Very nice all around
We try to save Bliss for special occasions as it’s the best in town for many years now. This visit was exceptional. The hamachi tostadas are 1 of the best dishes in SA. The vegan platter tastes as good as it looks. I’ve written so many reviews on this place & they never change. San Antonio is full of exciting sounding but mediocre restaurants. Avoid them and eat here.
A wonderful restaurant - food, service and ambiance. The oyster sliders are fantastic - highly recommended. I doubt there is a poor entree. We had the scallops and the cobia. First time we had tasted cobia and it was delicious. We will definitely return.
Excellent service in a pleasant atmosphere.
Food is prepare with attention to details.pork belly is my favorite and also the scallops
The food was imaginative. My wife had an octopus appetizer with Spanish chorizo that was wonderful. I had oysters Rockefeller (by another name). She had duck over wonderful beets while I had redfish with imaginative sauces. Service was pleasant and unobtrusive. We will return next time in San Antonio.
I have never been disappointed. Love coming here!
Great outdoor patio
This was our first time at Bliss and it definitely won't be our last! The ambiance was perfect, the service attentive, and the food incredible! I am so happy to have enjoyed a wonderful meal here and I look forward to many, many more!!
Everything was beyond amazing and all of the food was incredibly delicious!
Hands down THE BEST culinary experience I’ve had in San Antonio!
