What a pleasant experience. I'm accustomed to fine dining working in New York City and I would put this restaurant against almost any restaurant in that city. The outdoor seating area was absolutely fantastic. The service was efficient and friendly and the food most importantly was fantastic. We enjoyed everything we ordered. I would most certainly return if ever back in San Antonio.

Great place on South side of downtown SA. Service, food, ambiance, attention to detail all excellent. Not one thing they serve is left to chance. I liked the fact that all the servers, bar keeps and even the young guy filling your water glass seemed to care about wgat they were doing and they were friendly.

Bliss is a wonderful treat in both the atmosphere and the delicious dining choices. The ambiance is lovely and the service is definitely above average for SA. We enjoyed the evening and will return. However, we paid with cash and left much more than typical tip....and were not given the choice/our change. Server took the entire amount for granted as a tip and did not return to our table.

That should never happen, regardless of whether we were leaving the entire amount of change for a tip or not.

The Bliss was absolutely the best. We had a fantastic waitress who spent time discussing the right wine and giving us samples before we made our selection. The chef is a genius with food. We wished we lived closer!

Foodie Must!!! I’m a big foodie So after reading reviews I had to try - exceeded my expectations!
The appetizers our table ordered we amazing! Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten: octopus, hamachi tacos & bone marrow all beyond delicious!!! We ordered salads and the duck, scallop & short rib entrees which were all very good too. Good ambience, great wait staff. Nice wine list but wish they had more “by the glass” options, also wish they served cocktails. I will definitely return.

So good! Ambience, wonderful server and the best food in San Antonio so far. Broiled oysters with “olive dirt,” imaginative wedge salad and scallops with avocado mousse. Outstanding!

Food was wonderful. Two of us had the Pork and Bean and the other two had the scallops. Both dishes were amazing. The service was top notch with our waiter knowing when to show up and when to leave us alone. They even went the extra mile for our anniversary. All in all a perfect way to celebrate 45 years of marriage. This was something special.

The visit was great. The staff was very attentive, especially our server props to him.(Wish I could recall the name to put in a good word.) We enjoyed the wine, the appetizer, the entrees, and the dessert. Not once did I feel overwhelmed or uneducated about the items I was receiving. Definitely worth the drive from The Dominion to enjoy such a beautiful evening. Will definetly be back and hopefully to see our great server.
