"First-rate all the way" – and San Antonio's Most Popular restaurant – this "sophisticated" River Walk respite puts out an "excellent", "innovative" mix of New American and Southwest fare from chef-owner Bruce Auden in "industrial-chic" surroundings; add an "accommodating" staff and it's worth the "splurge"; P.S. look for pre- and post-theater prix fixe dinners as well as half-price options on...

Biga on the Banks Restaurant Review

Bruce Auden, the city’s dean of contemporary cuisine, and his longtime lieutenants keep well-heeled locals and savvy conventioneers coming back for more. If some dishes are immutable, the chicken-fried oysters and the Bibb and radicchio game packets among them, the menu otherwise changes frequently. Grilled ahi may be served with an English pea hummus, a seared duck breast is likely to be...

Overall this restaurant is top class, matching any Aussie's desire for top food and wine, comparable to Australia (instead of the Texas, pile it high, and take it home!).

A bit disappointing. Food was good...portions small. Charge a bit more and make the portions bigger! I felt somewhat rushed and not overly welcome. I thought my waiter was a bit pushy, talked a bunch. Staff was accommodating. I'm not sure I will rush back!

Business description (10) view all

This new restaurant overlooking the Riverwalk has a balcony bar, dining room, and private dining room. Valet parking nightly.

Request table 31 when you make a reservation at Biga on the Banks, and you'll end up with the best view in the house. You won't be gazing at the river, but you will have an eye on chef Bruce Auden as he concocts lobster ravioli on arugula and guinea ham in guajillo sauce. Tasting menus are a draw, but the food is equally as interesting when ordered a la carte. The loft-inspired space is airy...
