Extremely creative and totally delicious fare. Top-notch service by Mercedes. Lovely outdoor dining venue. Good selection of wine from around the world. Foodies, take note, you won't do better in San Antonio.

I returned here after 4 years. They haven't lost a step. Top notch service, great ambiance, and just phenomenal food. Run, don't walk, to Bliss. You won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful dinner at Bliss on their patio. We chose to select from their Prix Fixe menu - it’s a good deal. Everything we had was superb, including the Brewer Clifton Pinot from their well curated wine list. I highly recommend the Lockhart...quail stuffed with dirty rice. It was memorably delicious. And the service was just as memorable: attentive, friendly, engaged. We were there relatively late, so had a chance to talk about birds (a passion of ours and also for some of the wait staff). It made for a really fun and memorable evening. If we lived near here, we’d be back regularly. If I ever have a meeting in San Antonio, I’m bringing a bunch of folks to have dinner here. Highly recommended!More

Starting from simple yet unbelievable salad and a wine list that had wines that you don't see everywhere it was difficult to choose my entree. There were so many great choices but the short ribs stood out. Being a diabetic I was able to swap...the vegetables without a problem. I dine out in NYC on a regular basic and everything we ate at Bliss easily rivaled the best you will get in the best restaurants here.More

Our service was extraordinary. We were welcomed, seated immediately, given accommodation for a last minute request to sit outside, greeted by two different staff with beverages and general information. Our primary server, Russell- was engaging and made great recommendations- the Sliders are a must have....even...if you dont think you like oysters. When it is difficult for business to find employees- we are all the more appreciative of those who made our visit so pleasurable. The food was 10+ . the simple things like having beverage napkins replaced due to sweating glasses...and the table wiped was the extra we found refreshing.More

Such a pleasant little spot for an evening with colleagues! We particularly enjoyed the charcuterie, the duck breast and foie gras, and the butter cake. So glad we came across this gem and hope to be back again soon!

Very nice meal. Only downside was the lamb and duck were not available on the prix fixe menu. The grilled octopus starter and duck entree were fantastic. The toffee pudding was definitely the star of the show.

My husband and I had the pre-fixe dinner with a well paired white Pinot Noir. My husband loved the branzino, which reminded us of our time in Italy, and he devoured the butter cake. Everything was delicious, and our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive....He even offered to wait a little while before submitting our dessert order to the kitchen (so our food could settle a bit), which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend this restaurant!More

Discovered this spot on Tripadvisor. Turns out it was a great find. My wife and I walked from our hotel on the RiverWalk to Bliss. About a mile down St Marys, and had a reservation for patio seating. Waitstaff was excellent, the outdoor seating was...perfect and the food was great. The Asian Chicken Soup was awesome and the Scallops were well prepared and presented. Beer and wine only—the wine list was adequate. Recommend a visit.More
