Looking for a Restaurant Nearby With Great Reviews? Try Biga!

Thank you for your wonderful review.   We know there must be a lot of restaurants nearby .  We appreciate choosing ours.  Thanks for the 5 stars on Google!

“If there was a way for me to give 6 or 7 stars, I would! First, the restaurant’s ambience is nice… elegant but not stuffy. But the food was out of this world! Every item we ordered looked like it was out of a magazine and the special ingredients made the flavors of the dishes so memorable and delicious. Each course was a new, exciting and wonderful experience. I’ve never eaten a meal I have enjoyed more. Last, what made the experience was the service from our waiter, Rob. He was knowledgeable and was very helpful with suggestions. He seemed to be right there before we even knew we needed him. It’s not often you get that level of service. His goal was to ensure we had the best dining experience possible. None of the attitude you can sometimes get with high-end restaurants. Now, with all that being said, if you enjoy the full experience with a cocktail, salad/appetizer, wine, entree, dessert, and coffee, you can expect to pay a pretty penny. But – for me – it was totally worth it. There is no way I’ll return to San Antonio without coming back to Biga.”
