Bliss Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Another special occasion celebrated here
We've been to Bliss several times, and it's become our go-to spot for our special occasions, notably because of their ability to accommodate our vegan diet, as well as the romantic atmosphere and wonderful wine list. We will be returning again soon!

An amazing dining experience! The food was superb, creative yet delicious. The charcuterie selection was great, and our waiter, Jerry, did an excellent job of guiding our choices. The pan-seared snapper on risotto was fabulous! And the service was equally lovely. Mark Bliss himself stopped by the table and he was charming and gracious. All in all it was a wonderful evening.

First time to visit and had a fabulous time. The service is excellent and not rushed at all. The food is superb and very fresh. We will be back.

Can't go wrong with either the beef tenderloin or scallops! Service was stellar and the waitress even provided a tour of the kitchen/restaurant.
The food and service were amazing! If we are ever in San Antonio again, we will be coming back to Bliss.

Nice fancy restaurant with great appetizers. Very good service.
A well named restaurant
We had heard good things about Bliss for months but it took us a while to get around to dining there. Everything was fantastic. Professional and friendly welcome at the door, excellent service that was knowledgable and precise (although a few too many options were suggested) and the food was delicious and served quickly. Everyone worked well together and it was my best dining experience in San Antonio. Restaurants aren't just about good food, that should be a given. They're about the whole package and Bliss ticks all the boxes.
Good to have exceptional food and service always!
Whenever I have an out-of-town guest I want to impress – – from London or Paris or New York… Bliss never fails: inventive food, impeccable service, & especially appreciate the outdoor dining...
Great Food and environment
The environment and food selection that we choose was outstanding. The host and waitress were friendly. The food quality and presentation was excellent.
wonderful as always
we had a lovely dinner -- the oyster sliders are always awesome -- and they served a whole branzino -- and deboned tableside!!!!! The snapper with cilantro risotto and kale melted in our mouths!
An eclectic atmosphere coupled with a unique menu
The dining area is mostly a re-habbed filling station with excellent art. Our server was particularly informative about the structure as well as the nuances of the menu. One of the most unusual combinations of exquisitely prepared dishes. the au gratin potatoes are to die for. Definitely a place that begs return visits so that one could experiment with the savory menu. Not a children's restaurant.
Special restaurant, special meal
We thoroughy enjoyed our "blissful" meal on the patio of Bliss. Lovely setting, great service and marvelous food. On a day ouitng from Austin, we could not have chosen a better restaurant.

Fabulous meal!! Highly recommended!!!
A perfect evening, my guests felt special.
Friends came from New York to enjoy San Antonio with us. The food was scrumptious, the service was just right, and the staff was able to accommodate our schedule and whims with aplomb.
One of the best meals ever!
Visiting San Antonio this week and stayed at the JW Marriott resort. Found Bliss on tripadvisor and decided to make the trip in. So worth it! Great renovation of an old gas station. High ceilings, exposed beams and brick. Our waiter was friendly and polite and knowledgeable. My husband started with the bone marrow appetizer and had the lamb entree. I had the kale Caesar and the pork and beans. All delicious, in particular, my pork. A large serving of the most tender, tasty pork shank over this juicy bean concoction. So incredibly good. No room for dessert. Highly recommend!
Birthday celebration at Bliss
First I loved that there was easy no hassle parking. If you enjoy great food and wine with exceptional service, this is your place. Everything was first rate. My wife and I had an exceptional experience for her birthday celebration. Will definitely be back. Loved it!
Great food, nice setting
Food was great, and exceeded expectations . My only issue was with our server, while all other staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, I felt like our waiter was rushing us into making our selections and provided little feedback when asked about items. Only came by once after 30 minutes into the meal to see if we were ok, which was disappointing because we wanted more wine.
We are at Bliss this past Saturday night. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had the beef tenderloin and the pork ribs.....excellent. We will be going back!!!!
Always superb service
This restaurant is one of my favorites. Always has great service and a relaxing atmosphere. The food that night wasn't the best I have eaten, but it was still edible. Not sure why that was the case that night. But that wouldn't hinder me from returning. Thank you for always being excellent.
Nice place but lukewarm reception
Nice atmosphere but the staff was very cold. It almost seemed like they were all in a bad mood. We were very disappointed that only wine and beer were available and not a full bar. The wine was also very over priced. The food was very good and the outdoor area was beautiful.

One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. Special attention paid to quality and presentation of food. Great combination of flavors. Service was wonderful and unpretentious.
My second visit to Bliss was just as good as my first back in January. Excellent food, service, and ambiance. A terrific place for a refined dining experience.

Service was not as attentive as expected. While quality of ingredients was high, too many tastes combined. Desserts too could be parsed out to include fewer tastes.

Great dining experience; superior service.
From beginning to end, everything was edgy, presented with flair, with melded and wonderful flavors. Service was outstanding, and the look of the place was great as well. We had a great dining experience.

Simply put, AMAZING! Food: 5 stars Service: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars. Great wine list also. Price tag is on the higher end, but definitely well worth it. Great spot for special occasions, we celebrated our 7th anniversary here & we'll definitely be back soon!!
Bliss never misses!
I imagine that you all are bored with the same old reviews. Bliss is so consistent that they never miss a beat. The wait staff help each other and cover for each other. Water glasses never get close to empty. Our server Marcie would be a great help to anyone from out of San Antonio who was not familiar with the food menu or the wine list. I send all of my out of town guest to Bliss and then sit back and receive the accolades for having such good taste and steering them to such a great place.

Waited about 45 minutes past our reservation time. We were give a charcuterie board as compensation. The food was amazing. Service was great.
Best restaurant in SA
Unbelievable food, great waitstaff and a very nice atmosphere.
A Must Do when in San Antonio
One of the best restaurants that I have been to in a long time. A lot of attention paid to detail, which is the way we run our business. A must do when you are in San Antonio. Will need to get reservations a couple of days in advance.

Great gourmet menu! I enjoyed the bone marrow small plate, kale Caesar salad, and herb crusted lamb (med. rare). Everything was served timely and the meals were well prepared and were flavorful. Excellent spot for couples looking for fine dining.
I took my daughter there for a daddy daughter dinner for her sweet 16 it was a very delightful memorable experience please go and experience this restaurant
The food at Bliss is beyond delicious -chef Tony is extremely talented and makes a magical plate of ravioli---not to mention everything else on the menu is fabulous! Service can make or break an evening and here Monique makes the evening memorable and extremely special! This dynamic duo ROCK!!!! Love this place-can't wait to go back!
