As people who cook and love to experiment with great food, a superlative restaurant experience is defined by service (above and beyond authentic and personable), atmosphere (truly lovely, real and in line with the whole experience) and food that we would not typically achieve ourselves (absolutely creative and inspiring!). A great night on all accounts!

While at a conference well outside of town, I was looking for a restaurant for myself and a great client. I found Bliss online and reserved a table. Bliss did not disappoint! From an appetizer of oyster sliders and a fantastic soup to the Snapper and Short Ribs entrees the food was absolutely fantastic.

Loved Our entire experience at Bliss, but what made it even more outstanding was exceptional service by a very thoughtful and proactively accommodating server Lico.

I was disappointed with the atmosphere because it was a very special occasion and we basically could not have a conversation without interruptions from the waiter or the people seated on either side of us. The food was good and the restaurant was enjoyable but the ambiance was not romantic.

Incredible experience! Everything we ate was stellar but the standouts were the fried oyster sliders, their take on a wedge salad, and the Cajun spiced quail stuffed with dirty rice. Would return in a heartbeat if we didn’t live in Kansas City!

I was attending a conference and dined at several restaurants along the River Walk over those four days. The food, service and value varied dramatically, with two spots making it on my "never again" list. Thankfully just a few miles down the road we found Bliss! The food was exceptional. (The best scallops I've had in years.) The ambiance and service also spot-on. And plenty of free parking building-adjacent?! Too good to be true. Ive got another conference in SA in May. We'll be back to Bliss... probably twice!

Good restaurant. Safe and ample parking. Very nice hostesses. I was there for Valentine's day so the place was packed and thus noisy. The kitchen is very close to the sitting area and this adds to the commotion, as waiting staff goes back and forth to the kitchen and back , navigating through very narrow spaces between the tables. Our server was middle aged woman, tired of her work, barely trying to hide her exasperation behind a forced smile. Although she did a solid job, personally, I'd prefer someone more enthusiastic. The food was very tasty. It was a special holiday four course meal. The weird thing is that an appetizer was a small arrangement on a big plate, however the rest of the courses were large and overfilling. Also, I felt a bit rushed.I think the pauses between the courses weren't long enough to fully enjoy the meal. I felt the message was: Eat up, we got more people coming. The thing I disliked the most though is not adherence to the dress code advertised.Most people were dressed really nice but few wore jeans and shirts. I mean, is this a nice expensive place or what? Well, all and all, I'd give them seven out of ten. I don't think I would go back there, but I'd recommend to check it out.

Everything was spot on. From the appetizer to dessert, excellent execution. Service rivaled the best restaurants in “big cities” I’ve been to in the past. Attentive but never invasive. I would recommend to anyone looking for inventive cuisine in a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere.
