Las Canarias - Omni La Mansion Ratings and Reviews
This is a good restaurant with some good ...
This is a good restaurant with some good three course options. The food is thoughtfully described and displayed. 2/3 courses had one substantial missing seasoning or balance detracting from what with minor attention to detail might have been one of the best meals available in San Antonio. I have eaten here for many years and this critique could have been made many times over the last 30 years. I long to see a day when the food taste and flavor actually meets and exceeds the descriptions and the plating beauty.

I ate the Sunday brunch years ago and it was superb. Recommended to our friends only to realize yesterday that it has been severely diminished. Gone are the fancier made to order waffles and chilaquile dishes, replaced with semi warm food items. For $42--very overpriced. One friend only ate the buffet and no 3 mimosas--for the same price.

Our first time here for Thanksgiving Dinner brunch. What a wonderful experience. Everything was very good. Things that were suppose to be hot were and cold things cold. Great variety of dishes. Great, attentive servers. Dishes were refreshed often. After three years of mediocre to poor experiences at other places, it was such a treat to eat a good meal in a relaxing setting. We will be back next year. I give them my highest recommendation without reservation.

I have dined at Las Canarias many times and it is my favorite San Antonio Riverwalk special occassion restaurant for dinner service. This was my first Sunday brunch and it holds up to its reputation. The food choices were not especially imaginative, with the typical buffet brunch fare served. However, everything was fresh, tasty and substantial. The service was exceptional.

I read amazing reviews of this brunch buffet and was disappointed. I didn't think the food quality was that great and the menu was not very exciting. The only seafood items were shrimp that appeared slightly undercooked and a tablespoon of crab salad on endive. The carving station was nice with prime rib or turkey but the 1 slice of prime rib you were given was so thin, it was barely worth the wait. The remaining items were more of a traditional breakfast buffet . I also thought from reading reviews that it was unlimited mimosas but they made very clear when we sat down that it was 3 per person. That was fine, and possibly one more than I would have had but again, did not make me feel that we had a fabulous experience for the money. I have had brunch at the Hotel Galvez in Galveston and thought that was a brunch worth raving about ... this one was fine but nothing to go out of your way for.

As always, we LOVED Las Canarias. It is one of our long-time favorites. The food is always superb, and the staff is always excellent...but the best part is that the outdoor dining is set back and slightly UP from the packed pedestrian traffic along the San Antonio Riverwalk. Many other "sidewalk" restaurant patrons must put up with people pushing and bumping their way through the tables. Las Canarias provides delightful people-watching in an upscale setting that is out of the fray!

Champagne Brunch was phenomenal. Requested a Riverwalk view to which they accommodated us wonderfully. Variety
of options at the buffet was superb. Service was outstanding, my mimosa glass never went dry (limit was 3 though). Overall great experience and reasonable for the price.

We had the chefs 5 course tasting menu. It was phenomenal! The chef is greatly talented and the staff was awesome. Our waiters and waitresses were friendly, professional and accommodating. The Sunday brunch is amazing!

Excellent, quiet location on the Riverwalk. Only hitch was my tenderloin steak was cooked almost medium-well, and I had asked for medium-rare. They replaced it without question, but curiously, the chef himself came out to watch me check the replacement (which was cooked medium rare (+), but still acceptable). I don't understand why he had to come out, as the first one was obviously not cooked to order.
This was our first visit to San Antonio. ...
This was our first visit to San Antonio. We were fortunate to get a table by the window overlooking the beautiful River Walk which added a special element to the meal. The wine list is extensive & varied while the bread offerings were warm, fresh and delicious. The appetizer didn't thrill. My heirloom tomato salad with fried capers and olive powder was drowning in salad dressing that closely resembled Thousand Island. My husband's requested vegetable substitution resulted simply in the elimination of the original vegetable and we had to get the waiter's attention to have the other vegetable brought out. With so many restaurants to choose from on the River Walk, the quality & service need to be top notch. The wow factor was missing here.

We really enjoyed dining here. Service and hospitality were top notch, as was the food. My wife enjoyed the tasting menu, while I enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad (absolutely delicious!) and the paella. We were able to sit outside, along the Riverwalk- what a lovely evening!

Not sure why we saw such glowing reviews, because Sunday brunch was totally inadequate for the cost. Not sure if we were just too early or what, but no one manning the omelette station, no carving station, thawed frozen fruits . . . generally a buffet barely equal to a Hampton Inn.

We had a great dinner for 5. NOTE about all restaurants on riverwalk. If you want to enjoy your food, eat at an inside table. Many of the outside table are too close to the walkway and people are constantly standing and talking within a foot or two of your table. Thats fun if you are just drinking and people watching but not if you are trying to enjoy fine food and conversation.

The food was excellent. The salmon was cooked perfect and very fresh. The reyka martinis were delicious and even though I was beyond full the pudding desert that the server recommended was devoured within seconds!

Ordered filet tenderloin medium. It was served well done. After 15 minutes, waiter brought out a filet that was almost raw. Got it right third time. Potatoes were undercooked. My meal should have been comped after this experience. Only two other diners in entire restaurant.

When in San Antonio, riverwalk dining is a must. There are many good restaurants and we especially enjoyed Las Canarias. Our table sat just above head level of the walkway and we had a nice view up and down the river. Food and service were both very good and the menu has a wide variety of choices. Would highly recommend!

The food and ambiance were great. However, the menu failed to depict a price difference from "breakfast" to "brunch." The breakfast buffet is listed as $22. But no where on the menu does it say that the brunch buffet which starts at 11 am is double at $42. To my knowledge, there isn't even a brunch menu listed. But I wouldn't know there was a difference between the breakfast and brunch menus had I not gone and eaten there. Had I known that the price wasn't $22 a person, I would not have chosen this restaurant to have a birthday brunch. For an everyday Sunday brunch, yes. It was delicious, and the complementary mimosas were a huge plus. But I wouldn't have asked distant family and colleges to join me if I would have known it would be almost $50 a person after drinks and tips. And like I've stated, the food and buffet spread were great, the food has nothing to do with my review. Had I been eating with close family and friends only, whom I know have the luxury of spending $50 for brunch, price wouldn't be an issue. And the price actually wasn't the issue, as I've said, I would definitely go back and pay it again, it was the fact that the price wasn't listed for "brunch" and the bills were surprising as I had already let everyone know when I sent invites that the price would be $22 a person.

anytime we travel to san Antonio, we always go to Las Canarias! it is romantic with a beautiful view of the water and traditional looking décor. The waiter made us feel very welcome and did not rush us, pacing our courses well. The food is excellent with a well varied wine list. Great for lunch too!

This is my favorite spot for Sunday Brunch. The quality and variety of their offerings are wonderful. The bananas foster was outstanding.
However, it would be more enjoyable dining if the restaurant instituted a 'dress code'. When an elegant dining room allows patrons with tank-tops, shorts, and flip-flops, the quality of the experience declines.

Excellent Sunday brunch, champagne and shrimp cocktail were wonderful and the prime rib and turkey at the carving station delicious. My favorite place in San Antonio and if I lived there I would be joining you for brunch every Sunday!

Las Canarias was wonderful in every way! My husband and I had items from the Chef's three-course prix fixe menu. Each of the courses was paired with a wine of the Chef's choosing (and we were given a complimentary glass of champagne also!) Each course was spectacular. The service was also impeccable - polite, informative, yet not intrusive. We look forward to the next time we are in San Antonio so that we can visit Las Canarias again.
