Las Canarias - Omni La Mansion Ratings and Reviews

We have had breakfast, brunch and dinner here and it has always been superb. The Sunday Brunch had a large selection of breakfast and lunch foods available that were a gourmet treat. We look forward to going back. The service is always excellent. There were several children there, as well as adults. This is a very nice restaurant , so children need to know how to behave accordingly, but children are welcome and there are many things for them to enjoy--including the dessert bar!

I have been to the brunch on numerous occasions and enjoy the food and atmosphere. On this occasion Shaun Bruns, the food director, came by and said hello. He also constantly checked the food tables to ensure everything was available and presentable. This is great customer service and this attention to service and detail is what sets Las Canarias above the rest.

This place has ALWAYS been top- notch! I like the way single portions are served. My husband and I split a few of these. The oysters, ceviche and shrimp were popular with us. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's were perfect. I don't remember the outside grilled items 20 years ago, that was a nice addition. It made for a perfect Father's Day!

We went here to celebrate my husband and father for a Father's Day brunch. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We will be returning! I would recommend this place for brunch to EVERYONE!

We were disappointed with Las Canarias. I would nopt recommend this restaurant. We felt the menu was sub-par. I ordered a blackened ribeye. It was not blackened as that term is defined. We also had the bacon wrapped pork medallions. The were very heavy and not much flavor. The sides were average. The quail appetizer was the best thing we had. It was nearly impossible to drink the margaritas out of the glasses in which they were served.

If i wanted a chips and a sandwich i would have gone to subway i hated the plate i wish you guys would have sed it came with potato chips i ruined my morning
Breakfast on the River walk
Everyone else loved their food they ordered. I had the buffet and it wasn't anything special, pancakes were crispy, and sausage was below average. I would recommend not getting the buffet.

From what I saw the riverwalk area restaurants are very casual but this place is fancy inside and it was a very good choice for my wife's 60th birthday celebration.I wouldn't recommend shorts and tees. Food was great but expensive and our waiter took good care of us .
Compared to some of the other eateries along the riverwalk... the food was lacking in overall quality, presentation, and flavor. I'd scratch this one off your list if you were it as a dinner option.
This was a terrible breakfast experience. Almost everything was empty when we got there and they were so slow to replenish a station that people descend upon it quickly that it would be empty again. Just awful. Even the jam and jelly jars were empty. The only thing that was available at one point was the omlette station and it was about 20 people deep! One of the reasons we chose this breakfast buffet was because it was mentioned that they had a "gluten free station", which my 7-year old son was super excited about, but it was just a pathetic loaf of Udi's gluten-free bread and granola. They provided a dedicated toaster, but I watched another patron walk up and put a regular (full gluten) piece of bread in there, which makes that totally pointless. This was a seriously sorry excuse for a breakfast at $25 per plate. I asked our waitress politely a couple of different times what was going on with the buffet and was surprised that no attempt was made to discount our meal, which came out to over $100 (4 adults and 2 kids). I've honestly had better breakfast buffets for free at the Holiday Inn Express.

We had a lovely brunch on the Patio. We had arrived early and they still seated us and made us very welcome. The food was wonderful and the staff amazing. Will absolutely dine here again.
Sunday Champagne Brunch
We've been going to Las Canarias for Sunday Brunch for about 35 years. Love the atmosphere and the service. This time we felt that the quality has slipped a little, crab claws were "watery" and lacked flavor, dishes weren't labeled so you had to guess at the contents, shrimp was good and dessert selection seemed more limited than usual. We will be back with the hope that it was just an "off week".
Still the Best
I had visited San Antonio in for a week back in 1987 and stayed at the La Mansion. I had the brunch then and it was wonderful! Fast forward to 2016 and I get to visit San Antonio again. I took a group of business associates to the Las Canarias for Sunday brunch, and again, it was a wonderful dining experience. The food and staff are top tier. The staff treated us more like old friends rather than restaurant customers. What was supposed to be a quick one hour meal on our schedules, turned into a two and a half hour truly memorable experience. One person kept thanking me for the great experience. The thanks goes to Las Canarias.
What a great place to unwind
whether you sit inside or out the atmosphere is outstanding. The food is well prepared and the service is top notch. We have been here multiple times and always walk away in agreement that the next time we visit San Antonio we have to eat here.
What a civilized way to live . . .
Brunch at this beautiful restaurant directly on San Antonio's Riverwalk surpassed all my expectations. The spread was jaw-dropping: eggs, omelets, bacon, sausage, potatoes, fruit, French toast, muffins, shrimp, roast, vegetables, casseroles, croissants, and so much more that I can't remember it all. We had an absolutely magnificent table in a quite corner with a spectacular view of the Riverwalk. (Thanks to Open Table for honoring my request for a private location.) We could easily hear the soft jazz, but did not hear all the people around us--it was very crowded because it was Mother's Day--and were able to have a conversation. The mimosas flowed. All of the staff was attentive and accommodating. Our glasses were never empty. The waiters and bussers were happy to help us mark the occasion with a picture. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon . . .
This was a beautiful location and excellent service. The servers were very knowledgable and helpful with our selections. Food was excellent and presentation was beautiful. I would go back many times just to be able to try everything on the menu. I was told this was the best restaurant in downtown San Antonio and they were right. Also has a very romantic atmosphere and would also be great for company vip dining.
Food is always good here. Their Sunday brunch is
Service and food excellent! They have a good bar and even though we did. It go this trip, Sunday Brunch is very good
You can get much more in Vegas with the same price. Not a suitable price for San Antonio!
All restaurants should strive to be like this!
My husband and I went to Las Canarias for our anniversary. I did note on my reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. We were congratulated when we walked into the restaurant. Brahim was our waiter. He was exceptional! He was personable, knew the dishes, and treated us to a bottle of champagne. The food was delicious. Everything was perfect. Loved this place! Go now!!

Sunday brunch may not be the time to visit if what you're looking for is the scrumptious Benedicts. Buffet only on Sundays.

Took 6 clients out for a nice dinner. We had a great time and everything was excellent. The dining room was fairly empty so we lucked out and had basically private dining. The service level was out of this world! Don't hesitate to dine here.
The butternut squash soup was delicious and the ambience was nice. Beautiful space. However, the wine pairings were quite lacking and everyone received the same wine per course. It was more like a course tasting. We were disappointed. I probably will not go again.

We had breakfast 2 mornings in a row. The service and quality are exceptional and the price was in par with the rest of the river walk. We were not staying at this hotel. Our hotel had a good breakfast buffet but no omelets. I found this one online, it had great reviews and the price was only $3 more than ours and had omelets. However, when we arrived, the menu had the buffet $6 more and we can't eat $44 worth of breakfast. So, we decided to split the omelet and get oatmeal (only $5 a HUGE bargain) and some fruit. We had so much food, it was delicious and we enjoyed Hector so much. We just had to go back again. I understand they validate their valet parking. Do yourself a favor and go here.
Romantic Gem on Riverwalk, San Antonio.
This was a last minute Valentine's Day find selected to celebrate both V-Day and our anniversary. It was fabulous, from the friendly greeting to the end. We enjoyed quiet dining where we could actually hear and enjoy the acoustic guitar as well as our conversation. The meal, a fixed menu for this special evening, was delightful, tasty and filling. The wine menu had plenty of choices, and our server knowledgeable. Our chef visited our table (a surprise) and was friendly, engaging, and quick to answer our questions about the evenings offerings...a personal touch that was greatly appreciated. We'd never been here before...it's on our list as a repeat. Yes, a little expensive, but oh so worth it.
Beautiful place right on the river walk, but I felt it was a little overpriced. The food was very good, but not commensurate with the cost.

This is our third trip to Las Canarias on Valentine's Day. As usual the food and service were outstanding. The fried oysters were fantastic as was the smoked filet.
Great Food / Unattentive Service
Live in San Antonio and made a reservation to spend a quiet and romantic evening with my wife. Drove downtown to the restaurant which is housed in the magnificent Omni La Mansion on the Riverwalk. Once downtown, it took us 40 minutes just to get to the hotel. Traffic was bumper to bumper and not moving. It was a good thing we allowed an extra hour to get there. After fighting traffic and trying to make the impossible turn through traffic into the property, we pulled up at the entrance to the hotel to valet park the car with about 5 minutes to spare. We were then turned away for parking and told that parking was for hotel guests only, not restaurant guests. The valet attendant pointed us to a city garage located across the street with a mile long backup to enter the garage (we figured out that the traffic trying to enter the garage was the main reason for the huge back up). We contemplated just leaving. We again had to fight traffic to enter the garage and finally made it to the restaurant 1/2 hour late. We were promptly seated and promised excellent service. After ordering, the server brought our two appetizers - one of which was not what was ordered. Then the server finally delivered the appetizer - to the wrong table. The quality of the food was very good, but not once did anyone refill our water glasses when empty nor ask if we wanted another drink (we had to flag someone down each time). We also had to flag someone down for additional bread. However, the check came promptly. At over $200 for a dinner for 2, the service should have been impeccable. You would not expect this level of service at a top rated restaurant.
Don't go on a holiday
My wife and I went out the day before Valentines day. We arrived there twenty minutes early, were told they ran out of valet parking, 40 minutes later we were able to park across the street and walk over. We sat down to a very nice atmosphere, even with a quiet band playing. The hostess and waiters were always very polite and profession. At first they were prompt, but as soon as we asked to see their 'regular' menu instead of their absurdly priced Valentines day menu, service was hard to come by. The Smoked Filet Mignon is not for your average steak lover, it wasn't lightly smoked, they found a cow that smoked a few packs a day and encouraged his bad habit slaughter then smoked him some more. The bacon wrapped pork on the other hand, was delicious and paired very well.
