Best dinner out in a long time! Worth a long trip to get here. Great food, great ambiance and great service. We will especially be back for the fried oyster sliders- every detail/ingredient is pure perfection!

So flavourful! I had the coconut soup which was just incredible (a "taste experience") and the gulf prawns which were also wonderful, esp with the accompanying cilantro risotto. Also tried my partner's ribs which were also fantastic. The server was friendly and I had reserved...outdoor seating which was lovely and spacious and felt very safe covid-wise.More

Stuffy atmosphere, 3 shrimp cost $46 and was on a bed of avocado rice. Strange. Craft beer only. Overpriced wine, $10+/one glass. Extremely small portions. I ordered a salad, there wasn't much to it. Olive garden makes better salad. I would not recommend this restaurant,...unless you just like spending money and eating small bland portions. It's just not worth it.More

Our first visit but not our last, we celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary here. Both the service and the food were exceptional. Started with their bone marrow and steak tartar withe bread crisps - decadent indulgence. I had the duck breast with foie gras and...my wife had the scallops - both dishes were spectacular. Finish with a special dessert for our anniversary. Best anniversary meal in many many year. highly recommend this restaurant!More

I will talk about my experience at this restaurant for the rest of my life. We were embraced by the entire staff especially Chef Tony and treated like royalty. As far as I am concerned, this is the number 1 restaurant in San Antonio and...if you don’t go here, you are missing out! The ambiance and the food is perfection! Chef Tony has created a crave worthy menu with pairings to satisfy the palate. Plan on spending some time here so that you can order and enjoy all of the courses. This is truly a special place and thank you to everyone who was working when we were there for an unforgettable experience. XO, the girls from Grand Rapids MichiganMore

We typically dine downtown San Antonio on the Riverwalk prior to attending an evening performance at the Majestic Theater. We elected to dine at the Bliss restaurant based upon very favorable reviews and proximity to the venue. From the warm welcome to the conclusion of...our dining experience, we were impressed throughout our four-course meal. This will be our principal dinner destination prior to attending any performance at the Majestic or other Riverwalk venue. The food was incomparably prepared and the wait staff attentive, courteous and not overly intrusive. Our dining experience was true Bliss!More

We stopped to eat at Bliss before we went to the opera. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was fast and thorough, even though it was busy. I highly recommend giving this jewel a try.

LOML (Love Of My Life) and I decided to have a “date night” get dressed up a little (nice pants and jacket for me, dress with nice sweater as she gets cold easily for her) and splurge a bit on a nice meal out. Chose...Bliss. This was an excellent decision! We arrived a bit early, but a table was ready nonetheless. We started with a charcuterie plate with 3 items after discussion with our very helpful and knowledgeable server suggested going from a 5 to 3 item since we were going to have entrees. Our 3 items were the smoked duck, and two cheeses: the ‘Bermuda Triangle” Brie and the Sar Vecchio. The smoked duck was excellent and the Brie provided a nice rich accompaniment. The sar vecchio with some honeycomb gave a nice palate cleanser (in my mind at least). She had the scallops which were highly recommended by previous reviewers and by our server. I had the wild boar. Both were great! Flavorful and tender with their beds of cheesy grits and polenta respectively. With barely enough room we decided to split a butter cake dessert. Good choice to split as it’s about 5 inches in diameter and very rich. Overall an excellent experience and meal which we will be back to do again. We were even thinking of what other 2 couples we could invite along to get to the minimum 6 needed for the Chef’s Table!More
