Las Canarias - Omni La Mansion Ratings and Reviews

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. Howeve ...
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 ...
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! ...
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.

Went to Sunday Brunch and had a multitude of delicious dishes to include smoked salmon & caviar. Endless champagne & OJ? was a nice touch. Custom Omelette and carving stations. Separate desert area with bananas foster prepared to order. Little on spend side but we felt it was worth it.

We were under the impression that brunch was served all morning as there was conflicting information on line. We arrived to a very typical breakfast buffet and were told that brunch would not begin for another hour. We have had brunch there and it was incredible, absolutely worth $35 per person. This breakfast buffet was certainly not worth the $22 per person we were charged. The ambience was very nice and our waiter was very attentive, but we were incredibly disappointed by the selection of the breakfast buffet.

Gone with the old chef is good service, better selection, and management. Crowd of people being horribly loud and disrespectful ruined night,. No help from management. No longer is the best meal available and bread selection gone too. Used to love it. Now it's doubtful I'll return.

While visiting the Riverwalk in San Antonio we chose this for our anniversary dinner. It was what we were looking for, a quiet place in the midst of the hubbub of huge summer vacation crowds on the Riverwalk. The service was outstanding and the setting was delightful.

If you are dining with just two or four, ask for an area NOT around a group table which is noisy both times we went. But other than that, this place is just perfect for a business or romantic dinner. Servers are exceptional, tho one forgot our mango sorbet but didn't matter since we were so replete from paella, salad and asparagus. Just perfect. Salmon the next night was divine too!

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!
