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.

We had a lunch special of enchiladas and it was delicious and the proper lunch size portion. Good service, pretty setting.

My husband and I went here for Valentines dinner, and the place was nice, well hidden and next to the river walk. The food was...okay, for the price it wasn't the top of the line. The appetizer that we got the Game Pockets were the highlight of the entire meal! The food was good but not very seasoned and memorable. We sat in a little enclave with a table, which the table was too small really, I wished we had sat by the water.

We were fortunate to come upon this restaurant randomly when looking for something along the Riverwalk, and we're so glad we did! This was the best overall meal we have ever had! We started off with the Salmon Nachos, then I had the red snapper while my girlfriend had the bouillabaisse, and we shared the sticky toffee pudding. The menu changes but the bouillabaisse and sticky toffee pudding seem to remain constants, since they are the house specialties. Highly recommend!

Everything was amazing! I was there for a group function and the food was so good! Not at all the reheated banquet food you'd expect!
