I was a bit disappointed in regards to the very high expectations I had. It was a decent experience, but not more than that. The chicken fried oyster dish had overcooked and cold pasta served beneath, that didn't do anything good to oysters. The other condiments over shadowed the taste of the oyster. The bouillabaisse was fine with some fish that was a little over cooked. The cocktails from the cocktail list may have good parts, but definitely low lows. The service was plenty, but having both a waiter and the head waiter looking after the table, made them forget stuff and do other things twice. The bread that was served was cold and dry, and not near being freshly baked.

The service, both table and bar, is superb. A comfortable yet exciting experience is presented. The decor is becoming dated; showing wear. The meal was wrought with anticipation, stemming from the silky server. However I can't say the food lived up to its billing. The venison and quail were presented in varying degrees of doneness. The 11 spice blend tasted only of coriander. The rhubarb, cherry relish was mostly dried cranberries. The distinct tanginess of rhubarb was absent. The corn flour goat cheese tart was superb as a light starch component. The side of shitakes and peas could have been perfect, but it was over-sauced to the point of swimming. I believe the menu is suffering from its own success and a shake up would be awelcome and exciting event to experience.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Food and service are both INCREDIBLE. This place is actually owned by the chef and the menu changes daily based on what's fresh. I will be coming back often!

Great food and a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed dining here and would defiantly like to eat here again. I had the lamb rack and it was amazing. Also the foîe gras is pretty amazing as well.

We have been to hundreds, possibly thousands of upscale restaurants. Simply put the best food and best Service we have ever received. Gabriel is amazing. If you go to San Antonio and don't stop here for dinner you are missing out on one of the best dining experiences ever.

My Husband and I went for our anniversary and the food was loaded with salt. It was so bad that my tongue and mouth felt like it had been burned for days afterwards. I would not suggest them to anyone
Response from the owner - in the last week
Please tell us more you can call Perny so I can investigate your reservation, date of the booking etc. I cannot find a reservation under this name I have never heard this complaint about oversalted food at Biga before. Did you let your waiter or the manager know of these issues?
