Las Canarias - Omni La Mansion Ratings and Reviews
Live classical guitar music was a lovely accompaniment to a creative and artistically presented meal of fresh seafood specialties inflected with touches of southwest spices. However, the presence of a bar sunken in the center of the dining room added a lot of noise which adversely affected the dining experience. Bar patrons coming and going from the Riverwalk also affected the climate of the restaurant for diners both literally and figuratively: brisk breezes flapping tablecloths and Bar-hoppers in T shirts and flip flops really have no place in a fine-dining establishment.
Since the hotel has two other dedicated bars I would suggest they remove the bar from the restaurant, place the guitarist in the center of the restaurant where all the patrons can enjoy the performance and add more tables in front of the windows overlooking the Riverwalk. This would greatly improve the ambiance of the restaurant and be much more in keeping with the style of fine dining represented.
A $75 Easter brunch, we assumed, would consist of elegant service and decor along with superb, freshly prepared cuisine. Much to our dismay, this event was vastly overpriced and a great disappointment: Eggs Benedict were served with inferior Hollandaise (?) and impossible to cut muffins - even with a serrated knife.
Overall, this was obviously a buffet designed for people attracted to an "all you can eat" food bar than to people with discriminating tastes and high expectations from previous dining at Las Canarias' Sunday buffets.
Stations for he two freshly prepared items - omelets and Bananas Foster - were understaffed -long lines discouraged us, so we may have missed the best of the buffet. The prepared desserts were all mediocre, but, even when these ran out, they were not replaced.
The one positive was that the wait staff was courteous and attentive.
Clearly, our Easter experience was a significant disappointment, and we've long considered Las Canarias an exemplar of fine dining in San Antonio. We sincerely hope this was an exception to the usual quality of food and service at this respected restaurant.
The service was great. We have had Sunday brunch there many times and had bottomless champagne, but their champagne policy changed which was disappointing. Easter brunch was 75 dollars, more than usual, but only 3 glasses of champagne. That was a huge disappointment for us when we were used to unlimited champagne for a cheaper price.
Our dining experience was outstanding, even when two of the six meals we had issues with, our waiter, Ulysses was so on his game , true professional made it all work. We originally stopped in earlier in the day for a margarita and were so impressed with Ulysses our waiter and the location we decided to make reservations for dinner and Ulysses took care of everything. Definitely recommend!!
We were seated on the outdoor patio facing the Riverwalk (per our request) and had numerous service problems throughout the evening. To his credit, the manager realized our frustration and addressed our concerns. My husband loves this restaurant and will continue patronize it when in San Antonio on business - preferring to sit inside for better service.
We came in with a reservation, was quickly seated, then sat for 15 minutes without being greeted. As we walked out, we passed 3 servers that didn't say anything to us.
Went across the street to Hard Rock instead, spent a lot less money and had much better service.
Sunday brunch buffet for 42 per person? Overpriced tourist trap.
Had Sunday brunch with my sister's family who was in town visiting. When we sat down we were not given menus but didn't mind since we had seen their menu online that listed the price of the breakfast buffet as $22 per person. Imagine my dismay when we got a bill for $42 per person. Food selection and service was definitely not worth a price tag of $42.
Quiet dinner on a Thursday night before a show. Our server was Rick and he was excellent. We started with a cheese plate which was wonderful. The main courses were cooked perfectly. I recommend the crispy brussel sprout side dish... superb. We finished with a shared creme brûlée and two rich, flavorful coffees. All in all, a great dinner.
This is a beautiful restaurant with impeccable service and excellent food. My husband said his scallops were perfect, and I don't think I've ever had salmon as good as what they served me. This would be a great place to take a date or even have a business lunch. The wine list was extensive.
Las Canarias is a favorite when I visit San Antonio. The ambiance and service are exceptional. Menu is varied and Spanish inspired,but has something for everyone. Our group did paella salmon and scallops, all of which were perfect. Desserts and wine list are commendable. The price is high, but I really like this place and keep coming back.
Overall service was very good - wait staff very friendly. We dined on a Friday evening and was disappointed that at a restaurant with a very extensive wine list with some expensive choices the sommelier "was off". The backup had no clue so they would have been better off just saying no one was available. Also, when asked if I wanted fresh pepper, I was told the pepper mill wasn't working. One for the entire restaurant and it wasn't working? Food was OK/Good, but food came out lukewarm and the salad had store bought croutons. Very minor detail but it stood out. Overall kitchen staff should get in sync with very friendly and hospitable dining room staff.
Enjoyed a beautiful table overlooking the River Walk. Service was friendly and animated, but, alas, slow. We almost missed our theatre show, despite arriving 1:45 minutes prior. The wait for our meal was an hour after ordering. Nevertheless we will try again.
