Bruce Auden's award-winning BIGA ON THE BANKS is located in a spectacular setting in downtown San Antonio's modern International Center. Overlooking a romantic tree-canopied bend in the river, the historic and the new find common ground in Biga's dynamic re-emergence with ultra contemporary cuisine propelling San Antonio's recent ascent to a new level of River Walk dining. Gourmet Magazine named Biga one of the five best restaurants in Texas. Fine dining has never meant "fussy" to Chef Auden. Biga's ambiance is casual and relaxed - San Antonio style. Auden's celebrated culinary background, coupled with creative and energetic design, has marked Biga on the Banks as one of Texas' truly outstanding restaurants.

    Ordered the mahi mahi and the salmon and both were over salted to the point of not being able to eat it. Appetizers were eatable. The server was nice but very slow. In general I wouldn’t return.

    My husband I had a wonderful dinner at Biga on the Banks. I never knew that I liked radishes, but the dish I had was amazing. The chef created a combination of flavors that were fantastic. We, also, had a very nice view of the Riverwalk.

    Biga is an elegant, charming place to go for dinner. Great food, great service, and creative dishes are all to be found here. The ambience is welcoming and intimate. The red snapper. Thai-inspired salad, corn onion pudding and berry crumble were particular standouts!

    Overall our entire experience at this restaurant was not a good one at all. Why the good reviews ??? I just can’t understand. The moment we walked in and saw the 1980s decor , I did not have a good feeling. I will say first off that it was not the servers fault. He did well, although he forgot my husband’s second glass of wine. He was kind and good at his job. I completely fault management in the kitchen. We left 40 minutes into our experience because we waited 20 minutes or more for a Caesar salad . Come to find out they had a large party of 100 guests. If a restaurant can not take care of all its guests with the same amount of effort and timeliness, they are missing the whole point of being in the service industry. The food we did have was not great and cold in the very center (empanadas) I am highly suspicious that they were once frozen. I am completely dumbfounded by the lack of good food on The Riverwalk, this I’m was just another awful experience. So sad when the Riverwalk could be a really beautiful place. I would not recommend Biga to ANYONE.

    Biga is our anniversary tradition and also a place we come for a special, quiet, gourmet meal that we know will never disappoint. Last night we were lucky to get the last remaining early reservation and got a nice table overlooking the river walk. We were greeted by the hostess and our waiter who both wished us a happy anniversary. Our waiter Jose, was super polite and easy going. He was prompt, courteous, informative and made sure we knew he would make the evening a pleasant one. For the first time we chose from the prix fixe menu. We tried the tortilla soup and the Thai inspired salad as first course. Both were excellent. For the main course, we both had the salmon accompanied by roasted beets and watermelon chunks with mint and feta. The salad seemed pan sautéed and had a light basalmic reduction on the plate. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Beets were tiny little cubes and while tasty, just too few to make more than two bites. The watermelon, in our opinion, just doesn’t compliment this dish. The combo of mint, feta, and melon with the very different flavors of the salmon just didn’t work for us. But that’s a personal taste thing… the side was certainly prepared well. On to dessert.. she had their famous sticky toffee.. OMG.. call the doctor.. this is so good and so bad for you. Definitely the dessert to have. We’ve had their other and this is tops. I had the fruit crumble. I love fruit desserts and this was very very good.. only complaint was I wish the fruit part was hotter and the little ice cream ball/scoop was a tad bigger (it’s very small) and not so ice cold hard. I’m the end, it worked out but just that little change would raise it a notch. Overall, another wonderful evening at this San Antonio landmark. Can’t wait to come back. Oh, and we think the prix fixe pricing is a great deal for this kind of quality.

    Exceptional tasting food. The food combination will please your palate. The prices are not bad and there is a prixe fix menu. The waiter gave us the background of the establishment, the chef and global dishes on the menu. I would just recommend the bar staff refrain from extended conversation as we could hear everything. Also the wait team didn't allow us enough time to completely eat our food before asking us if they can remove the plate. That became a running joke

    I've going to Biga for many years and used to love it. So much so that I had my wedfing reception there 12 years ago. Through it has been several years since I've been there, I was looking forward to a memorable experience on my wedding anniversary dinner last night. To my horror, the place had declined dramatically. The decor was dated, the place was gererally dirty looking. The dingy, worn out bare, veneer table was blistered and peeling, the window we were seated nect to was dirty, the cheap , thick-rimmed wine glasses were straight from Walmart. Food was decent, but ordinary - certainly not worth the premium price. I wouldn't recommend it - which is a shame since Biga was an elegant, upscale go to place for a special occasion. Never again.

    From start to finish, our experience was top notch! The ambiance was calming and cool after a long hot day walking around; the cocktails were so uniquely refreshing, and wines perfectly paired and delicious; the food was expertly prepared, and my tastebuds were delighted at every bite! I have a mushroom allergy and my friend is gluten free, and and that was expertly handled by our server, Ray, who verified no mushrooms in any of my food, and mentioned gluten free meal options and even brought an appetizer on a separate plate, so my friend could safely enjoy it! We thank you for the wonderfully caring, accommodating and expert service!! Ray was so knowledgeable, friendly, personable, and professional; and even though we stayed well past closing, we never felt rushed, so a big thank you goes to all the rest of the staff that had to stay because we enjoyed ourselves so much. Thank you for your time and talents, and for creating deliciously memorable food for my birthday!! Biga restaurant staff definitely deserves all the best accolades…bravo!!

    This place is amazing. The service from start to finish was spot on. I had the Smoked & Roasted Mahi Mahi. The aroma of the dish was the first clue of what was to come. It was probably one of the best dishes that I have ever had. My date had the Pan Seared American Red Snapper, and couldn’t stop talking about it. I’ll definitely return next time I’m in San Antonio.

    I normally don’t leave reviews but felt a deep need to acknowledge the unbelievable service we received at Biga last night. In the post-Covid restaurant world, we have come to expect a lower level of attention and experience given the tremendous turnover in the service industry. Not so at Biga… In all honesty while the food was outstanding our waiter Chris and the rest of his team were insane! They were knowledgeable without being pretentious, incredibly kind to my 80 year aunt (she is a piece of work who banters and flirts with the best of them) and catered to our every need. The Thai salad was spectacular, rack of lamb Delicious and desserts beyond belief. I highly recommend the Manhattan (one and done … could put a seasoned sailor under the table… I am not even slightly complaining). This meal was first class but very reasonable (you can order a half portion for a reduced price) and the pri fixes menu was perfection. We are foodies from New York and Denver and I know it will be a long time before we have a meal like this again… may have to fly back soon just to have another go at this unbelievable restaurant.
