“Fun and hip business dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Great charcuterie, inventive menu utilizing local ingredients. Recently rated Best in San Antonio. Foie gras was splendid thought the accompanying duck was gamey and a bit dry, would have been perfect if tender. Probably attributable to local availability. Nevertheless the atmosphere is more urban chic while still comfortable, great and unique find in this convention town. A wonderful choice for entertaining corporate clients, good for friends outing or date night.

“Awful, bad service and nothing but attitude”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Mark Bliss thinks he has the only restaurant in San Antonio. Reservation is for 7 and we show up at 7:14. They say, sorry but we gave your table away. If you want to wait maybe we'll have something for you. Ok, i get it, in the name of you maximizing your profits you need to fill tables but dude, just ask me to wait a few minutes while my table is prepared. I get it, I'm late by 14 minutes. I drove as fast as i could without getting a ticket. And then i get a lecture for not being on time and as the hostess says "maybe iI'll be on time next time?" We just left. And to top things off, i see two tables open behond the hostess. It's just a ploy to make you think they are in that much demand. Sorry Mark but you're not the French Laundry quite yet. Please, as if I'm not just going to go to any one of the 50 great restaurants in SA? Could not be more pretentious. Service is a awful. Hostess is a stupid. If you want to be berated and treated like a child then go for it. Otherwise, go to Boiler House or any restaurant at the Pearl brewery.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Mark Bliss, previous owner of Silo, has the most amazing restaurant in the city! The food is an absolutely bliss! The menu is very high quality and quite adventurous. The appetizers we had were amazing: one was a sweetbread and italian beans in a broth, I could have had a whole bowl of this stuff and be completely satisfied! my husband had the spring rolls with a thai chili sauce, he was very pleased as well. We skipped the salad course and went straight to the entrees. I ordered the Maine "perfectly" seared sea scallops, pepperjack-white cheddar grits, sautéed spinach, avocado mousse,and cilantro lime jalapeno beurre blanc. OMG! they were amazing, probably the best scallops i have ever had. My hubby order the Duck breast and Foie Gras with grilled onion & red chard risotto, black pepper orange sauce. the wine list is not very good, but the food makes up for it. maybe next time we will bring our own wine.

“Good, but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Good food and great service. Entrees and appetizers were very tasty, but we thought the appetizers were pricey for the size of the portions. Nice wine list. We had a good time.

“Where the local foodies dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Recommended by a shopowner in the art district, this is where the local foodies dine. The menu is trendy American with a good deal of French and Asian thrown in. We loved everything we ate from the wine to the bread to dessert. The decor is minimal and tasteful. Loved it!
