Dining options: Late Night, Dinner, Breakfast, Outdoor Seating, Reservations
Dining style: Casual Elegant
Neighborhood: Downtown
Cross street: Market St.
Transit: Biga is located in the center of downtown San Antonio. Though we are walking distance from most downtown hotels, we are also conveniently located for any who wish to use the city's public transportation.
Description: Overlooking a quiet bend of the San Antonio Riverwalk, but within walking distance of all Downtown hotels and the Convention Center, Biga on the Banks highlights the daily changing menu of Chef Bruce Auden, the most frequently James Beard nominated Chef in San Antonio. Menu features seafood, steaks, lamb and wildgame with a preference for local and sustainable product, but do leave room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding.With high Zagat ratings Biga is an ideal venue for a romantic dinner for 2 or has impressive private dining rooms to entertain clients.

Reviewed December 30, 2012

Words can not explain. Husband and I went for my B-Day and requested a quite spot. We were seated in a romantic spot with a choice of closed curtains for privacy (Table 31). The best Duck,Texas Axis venison and grilled Texas quail I have ever had. A MUST when in San Antonio!!!!!

“Christmas Dinner”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food was very good that was served on the Christmas Dinner plate. We had steak and salmon, and both were excellent. We enjoyed all that was served with the dinner too! Would go back next year for Christmas Eve dinner!

“Bravo for Biga”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Really couldnt ask for anything more. Waiter was technically perfect but perhaps devoid of a personality (tho that might be a bit harsh). Probably the most perfect lamb chops I've ever eaten. Lovely atmosphere. I would whole-heartedly recommend for a fantastic meal.

“What's wonderful experience”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

We were 3adults and 2kids.
The adults got the antelope and quail , pork tenderloin. The 3rd adult was nt very hungry and the place accommodate for half portion of Mahi Mahi. Everything was just great. They have kids menu which is of reasonable portion size ( some restaurant give very small portion for kids ) and include dessert.
The place is expensive but everything was so tasty that we felt it was well spent money.
