    TREMENDOUS Thank you, for an incredible experience. Culinary excellence at its Best. Chef Hernandez left us speechless. Our server Marcie didn’t miss a step and was extremely accommodating. The entire staff made our daughter’s birthday dinner one to remember. I would highly recommend Bliss to friends and family. I can’t wait to return.

    The food was amazing, every single plate was very well done and warm. Just a little suggestion; it was my friend’s birthday and when I ordered the butter cream cake they did not added happy birthday to her plate it was so plain that it did not look special to me. My reservation was for the patio; that night was cold but they had outside heaters and they give you a blanket which was great.

    Great place for special celebration as this a top of the line eating establishment and cost is moderate to high. You will be well taken care of. Your palate is in for a treat as all dishes have extra care and flavor. A must place to enjoy.

    Overpriced and over hyped. Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and the menu was so small she couldn't find anything that was appetizing to her. The waitress recommended chicken strips, if she wanted chicken strips we would of gone to cane's.

    A wonderful romantic evening with my wife. Everything was great. Even though it was expensive (we ordered a very good bottle of wine which was responsible for half the bill), it was well worth it all. We will return to celebrate special occasions.

    We had the very best time. The service was impeccable from walking in the door, to paying our bill and leaving. Our waitress was patient and explained the menu in detail. Even the bus boy knew what the cilantro oil was that came with our oysters in the half. Wine selection was excellent, and everyone worked so well with each other. A delicious meal and memorable experience that begs for a follow up.

    Service was outstanding. Wine selection by the glass was very good. Food was exceptional. My only issue is we ordered one of two specials - the Osso Bucco to share. The entree was massive but very nice presentation. the price for the entree which we shared was $135 which seemed on the high side My bad for not asking. All in all a very good experience and a very large doggie bag.

    Bliss has been my favorite restaurant in San Antonio for years, but the quality and preparation of the food was disappointing. I was excited to try the lionsmane app yet it was way too sweet. The short ribs were overcooked and the sauce was lackluster. The red snapper was good but the sauce was too salty. Not sure what has happened in the kitchen but something needs to change. Also, I was there during prime time on a Friday and the main dining room was not full which has never been the case, so maybe the word is out that the food quality has declined. Very sad. Was a spectacular restaurant in its prime.

    The food was fantastic. Ahí Tuna appetizer was one of the greatest combinations of flavors I've had. I could have had six or seven orders of this and called it a night, but that would have been a mistake because my Mediterranean Sea Bass dish was super, and my Chocolate bar dessert was also great. My wife had Sea Scallops for her main and then a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert, and that was great too. I could recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was pricey though. But with it.

    Bliss was a blissfully delightful experience. Lovely ambiance, our server Bret was very knowledgeable and attentive and the food was exceptionally prepared and delicious. The duck breast was perfection and paired with a blueberry and strawberry reduction. The wine list was well curated to match the menu and a very good value. If you have the opportunity meet the owner, Dorian. He is warm and hospitable and shares I retesting tidbits about the restaurant and its “high” profile guests. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out on this gem!

    Brett was amazing. He provided a depth of knowledge to our food and drink options that only enhanced our dinning experience. I’ve never had an experience when the food was more than just a meal, but it gave me a better understanding of the chef and the thought process behind the meal. Well done. Never a bad experience but this time was above and beyond.

    Such an amazing restaurant! I put down the reason for our reservation was our anniversary, and the waiter congratulated us on our anniversary and even put a candle on our desserts for us to blow out and celebrate! It was a small detail but it made our visit so personal and intimate. Our waiter was also very good at making sure all of our questions were answered and helped us chose wines to pair with our main courses. I would recommend this place to anyone!

    We’ve been to Bliss a few times for special occasions- always top notch. The service is always very good but I have to say the waiter this time was outstanding. I wish I could remember his name. But overall consistently a place we know will have great food, service, and overall vibe anytime we want to celebrate.

    A favorite and did not disappoint. Not only was dinner fantastic (scallops and short ribs) but the buttercake has an apple topping which was fabulous! We love to have the tuna tostada and oyster starters which are a must and though we did not order happy to see the mushrooms on the menu. Those are a must try! Also enjoyed the cheesecake and as usual friendly, professional wait staff. Kudos!
