“Biga is the place for big expressions of game like Axis venison with Lockhart quail or more subtle renderings of Scottish salmon or grilled Australian lamb. The staff is polished and professional, the wine and cocktails lists are by turns creative and lavish, and the second-story terrace overlooks one of the river’s calmer settings.” – San Antonio Express November 2021
