    Professional, attentive service. Enough helpers to feel like you're being particularly well taken care of. The food is the center of attention, and we have never gotten a bad meal or experience there. The owner will even come round to greet and talk with you. These guys will make you feel special.

    Bliss is a favorite restaurant for my wife and I. Mary is an amazing server and will explain any and every preparation on and off the menu. Everything is unique and wonderful. Preparations unlike anywhere else and constantly changing. We are from the Dallas area but when we go to San Antonio, Bliss is a must!

    It was a wonderful experience!! The Chef welcomed us at the front door when we arrived! Service was 5 star our server although I didn’t catch her name she was outstanding, already knew what wine and sake would compliment our dinner. She gave us a detailed explanation of our dishes and always made sure we were having a good time!!! Would recommend others to stop by and enjoy the experience!

    I have been a fan of all of chef Bliss’ amazing incarnations for decades. Was so excited for dinner, only to be disappointed by marginal service which seems to be the norm these days. Did absolutely nothing to celebrate my partners bday despite spending $400 on dinner.

    It was our first time at Bliss and we loved everything about it. The environment was charming and chic with wooden beams and weathered brick inside. The server was perfectly attentive and friendly. There were others who came around topping off our drinks and clearing plates. We didn’t want for anything. We got the baked coconut curry oysters, raw oysters with squid ink crackers, red snapper , duck/foie gras and the flavors were beyond amazing and presentation was a treat for the eyes. We absolutely loved every bite! Cannot wait to go back!

    First time dining at Bliss, and we came here for our anniversary. Food and service was outstanding. We had the oyster sliders appetizer and a daily special crudo app, both were delicious. Braised beef short ribs and the Duck/Foie Gras for the entrees, both spectacular. We will definitely come back again for special occasions.

    It was our first time there, our kids second time. My son’s GF took him there for his birthday, they did the sampler menu, where they taste a little bit of everything, they loved it all. And it was fantastic for us, we ordered from the regular menu this time. The flavors and presentation, the cooked to perfection food was such a treat. Been a while since I had food this good. We go to places like lll forks, Bob’s steakhouse, Chamberlains, all good restaurants, but this was a unique experience. Can’t wait to go again!!!!

    Great food, we enjoyed all courses. I would recommend if visiting in summer months make reservation for inside. Outside is hard to completely enjoy food with high heat index. We originally were seated in back outside area and although there were fans it was still excessively warm, the hostess was very kind to move us to a more shaded area in front outside area which did help some.

    This was our second visit. Lucky for us Justin was our server again. Idk how he does it so seamlessly. Had enjoyed the Sanford Chardonnay last time, it wasn’t available but Justin brought another great one. Our appys were great octopus, salmon & the most amazing oyster sliders. Dinner short ribs & branzino knocked it outta the park. Chocolate cake delish & the citrus tart to go so light. See ya next time we are in San Antonio keep up the great work everyone. Thank you
