Description: 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 Sticky Toffee Pudding.With high Zagat ratings Biga is an ideal venue for a romantic dinner for 2 or has impressive private dining rooms to entertain clients.

Highly recommend this restaurant along with Bella and Boudros if you are on the riverwalk, are foodies, and not on a budget. Of the 3 this is more contemporary and upscale-also best choice if you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner. Service and food are terrific-check their menu on website-it changes with the season. This is the most expensive of the 3-figure $230 for split app,dinner, bottle of wine and terrific souffle for dessert.

We had a great seat overlooking the RiverWalk. The service was great and the food creative. I would definitely recommend it.

Antelope and quail done to perfection. Need I say more. Many other great choices. Pricy but worth it for that special occasion!

My wife and I dined here for dinner and thought our experience was very good. The service was excellent but I thought the food was overpriced for what you got. I was disappointed in the view of the River Walk. All in all, it was a nice establishment, but I don't think it was worth the price and I probably wouldn't dine here again.

There were 5 of us plus my service dog. We decided to eat early. And did have reservations. Immediate seating was welcome. We decided to take advantage of the Price fixed menu of 3 or 4 courses. The choices were delightful and made my choice hard. I chose the beef, salad and dessert. Serving sizes were just perfect except for the dessert. I ordered the chocolate moose and all I can say is fortunately it was so good and rich I was able to take half home and had it for breakfast.
I will return to this restaurant the nest visit to San Antonio. Gourmet yes, delicious definitely, wonderful service yes.
