"First-rate all the way", this "sophisticated" Downtown 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 entrees on weekends.

Overlooking a quiet bend of the San Antonio Riverwalk, but within walking distance of all Downtown hotels and the Convention Center, Biga on the Banks highlights the daily changing menu of Chef Bruce Auden, the most frequently James Beard nominated Chef in San Antonio. Menu features seafood, steaks, lamb and wildgame with a preference for local and sustainable product, but do leave room for the...

Where to Sit

Away from the crush of commercial Riverwalk and housed in the former central library, Biga offers a street-level balcony for alfresco fans.
