"Bliss" is the Perfect Name! - Edit

Bliss is my favorite place to eat and I travel almost an hour to get there. The food is all raw and absolutely delish! And it's great to know I'm eating so healthy. Every other Sunday they have a class on how to make something in their cafe and then you get a meal, FAB! Love it!

Cons: Friendly & Knowledgable Staff, Extremely healthy cuisine, Great Portions

Bliss is.....well, BLISS! - Edit

Small, elegantly and tastefully decorated, nice light and ambience, and the staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. The foods are gourmet raw dishes, so they are incredibly delicious. For raw food purists, there are some complex food combinations, but the taste makes it SO worth it. Be sure to get the Hemp Horchata - it is phenomenal at Bliss! This is, by far, my fav vegan restaurant in Dallas at this time.

Pros: delicious, raw, perfect dish, every time

Cons: parking can be tight, limited hours, so call ahead, organic, raw food is expensive

Still on the fence - Edit

The food at this restaurant is fantastic, hands down. The first time I went, I had the Greek pizza; the second time I had the Rawko Tacos and my (non-vegan) husband had the California pizza. I would order both again and my husband said he would, too.

That's the awesome. Now for the not so awesome.

The first time I went, I was told after I received my beverage that the credit card machine was broken and they were only taking cash and checks. Fine, no problem. A family came in and were told the same thing, and they commented that they had the same problem the last time they came. Fast forward to my next visit 2 months later where we were told the same thing. If you don't want to accept credit cards, just tell people you are a cash-only establishment; put it on your website and on your menu. Otherwise people are forced to walk down to the horrible Bank of America ATM. This has gone on too long, in my opinion, for it to be a broken credit card machine. It makes you look dishonest and it makes me feel icky.

The service is beyond ridiculous. As a niche restaurant, I would expect to be asked if I had been there before and if I had any questions about the menu. I don't like a waiter to hover or anything, but a check-in after the food is received would be nice, as well as a refill of my water without having to ask. During my last visit, there was a patron who came in to pick up a to-go meal. He was paying in cash. The waiter told him he had to go get change so he left the restaurant for about 15 minutes, during which time no one else ever even came out from the kitchen or anything. A couple came in and we told them we guessed they could sit anywhere they wanted and they would need cash. Both times there was maybe one other table besides mine and the hipster waiter was just way too cool to wait on a table in any kind of decent way.

It's a real shame. I can't say enough about how good the food is; it's the only thing that will make me go back. The other issues are what will make those visits far less frequent than they would have otherwise been.

Pros: Excellent food

Cons: Terrible service, Credit card machine perpetually broken

Bliss' food is very good - Edit

My daughter and I ate at Bliss yesterday around 2:00 p.m. It is a nice decor. We ordered a 'tuna' sandwich, linguinni, and a to-go pizza, pumpkin cheesecake, and a brownie. It was all very good. Our service was ok. We will definitely go back.

Pros: very good food

Slow motion veg - Edit

We will not be returning to this restaurant. The food was pretty good and fresh, but that's where the compliments stop. The service was atrocious. There were two other tables seated (one already with food) and far from busy. It took a good 10 minutes to get a glass of water after receiving the menus and probably 45 minutes to get a simple sandwich and an entree. After we finished eating, we sat again with no attention. Two staff members (one who might have been the owner) seemed oblivious to the needs of the customers.
This place seems a bit worse for the wear: water served in dingy wine glasses, burned out lightbulbs in the decorative fixtures overhanging the tables, and poorly maintained restroom. The location is far from perfect and the interior design seemed a tad cold and dated. I wish it was better, but we'll stick with our downtown and Oak Cliff establishments.

Pros: fresh food

Cons: location, price, service

Delicious wraps! - Edit

This is a small restaurant but it is oh so good. I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian but do venture into vegan/raw when the opportunity arises. Bliss has a delicious Amigo Wrap with "crisp romaine with chili spiced beans, taco paté, guacamole, sprouts, red onion rings, pico de gallo, salsa verde, dash of cumin."

The wrap was about 13 bucks but it's worth it if I only eat raw occasionally. Just thinking about it now makes me wish I was back in Dallas eating one!

Pros: delicious wraps, outside dining

Cons: expensive

Visitor from out of town - Edit

I flew in to Dallas and went straight to Bliss for dinner. The owner is so lovely, they were happy to make me anything I wanted! It was so good I ate there every night that I was in Dallas and brought my colleagues. Everything I tried was delicious, their bread and elixirs are amazing. I live in NY and I must say that Bliss is the best raw place I have been to!

Pros: variety, friendly, delicious

Cons: None in NY!

Amazing! - Edit

Definitely the best raw food I've ever had! Everything tastes amazing and is incredibly flavorful. It is expensive, but it's totally worth it. It's certainly not a place I could afford to eat at more than once a month, but it's a nice treat. Desserts were pretty darn good too. I highly recommend the brownie; one of the best vegan brownies I've had in a long time. There's not a lot of space to eat; there were about 10 bar stools in the main part of the building in addition to the patio area, which was enclosed, but would still probably be too cold during the winter.

Pros: amazing raw food, amazing desserts

Cons: expensive, limited seating

I absolutely love Bliss Raw Café & Elixir Bar! Everything is super fresh, innovative, and presentation is gorgeous! True, it's not cheap. But making raw gourmet vegan cuisine is an elaborate and expensive process--I think their prices are more than fair. The guys at Bliss are doing a great service to Dallas by offering raw delights that rival some of the most notable raw eateries in the country! I'll definitely be back there soon!

Raw food - Edit

I visited Bliss Cafe when it first opened about a month ago, but haven't been back since. The location was strange and the place was small, but the staff was very friendly and the food was fantastic. It's the second attempt to have a thriving Raw restaurant in Dallas. I never had the opportunity to visit PURE which went out of business as quickly as it opened, but if it had anything to do with overpricing, Bliss is sure to follow. Overall, my experience was good, but it's not really in my budget. I've been raw for a year and without any raw restuarants in Dallas (up until now), I've learned to make many dishes myself, and will continue. It's a hell of a lot cheaper. As for Bliss Cafe, it's great that they're introducing Dallas to something new and healthy, but I don't think many serious raw-foodists will spend their money there. I can feed a whole room full of people for the same amount as one serving from Bliss. So this reviewer has mixed feelings. While I love the concept and the food, I can't get over the prices.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, clean

Cons: expensive, location, tiny building

Texas Surprise - Edit

I've been in texas for four days. Bliss is definitely the highlight of my trip. I should have called before stopping by, because they weren't open yet. But the follks here decided to feed us anyway. The food was awesome and I just got that rush of energy that comes after eating a well prepared raw meal. If you find yourself in Dallas, make this a priority stop.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, vegan

Cons: hours
