Las Canarias - Omni La Mansion Ratings and Reviews
Superb experience. Everything was 5 star-the food, the service, and the ambiance. Delicious food and plentiful choices, prompt & friendly waiters, and such lovely detail in the hotel and restaurant. I couldn't have asked for anything better on my birthday. We will definitely be returning.
Selected restaurant due to excellent reviews and location. Although restaurant was not full, service was consistently slow. Waiter frequently got distracted and orders incorrect. Butternut squash soup and salad were excellent. Rib-Eye steak was to be medium well and was barely medium. Quality of steak was very poor, tough and chewy. When ordering cocktails and wine, waiter consistently recommended cheapest quality whiskeys and wines. We had to specify much higher quality drinks which was delivered. Waiters knowledge of drink offering was poor. Due to slow service, several items on order being incorrect, and poor quality of steak, we would not return.
It is the tale of two meals! We went for dinner on Mother's Day night and not too crowded, but it must have had the B or C team in the kitchen.
The location itself is lovely on the Riverwalk. We sat outside and overlooked the River. We both ordered salads and a main course. The salads were were passable but nothing special. Then the main courses came. I was really looking forward to my Ribeye steak and pan roasted Brussels sprouts. It was the most expensive item on the menu. I ordered it medium rare but when I cut into the steak it was medium. Disappointing, and the potato puree was also not warm. I sent the steak back after the server tried to be helpful. Sadly, the second steak came back even more medium and very disappointing. The server apologized and the manager came by and checked on us. He removed the cost of the meal which we appreciated and offered us vouchers for breakfast there as we were also guests of the hotel. Service was excellent given the issues. My wife had the shrimp and grits. It was decent.
Two days later we went to breakfast which had a very good buffet and amazing lemon blueberry pancakes. It helped soften the blow of the meal on Sunday!!
First, an unbelievably robust wine list by both glass and bottles greeted me at the table. Pair that with an excellent wine guide and server (Ralph) led me to experiment with some new and refreshing wines. I choose the salmon dinner that was perfectly prepared and cooked with slight browning on the edges. The accompanying thin green beans were fresh and tasty. I ordered an additional side of Brussels sprouts upon Ralph's recommendation. Sight disappointment with the kitchen-altered dish (chef was out of town so regular preparation was discarded - a bad idea here). To their credit they removed the charge from the bill.
I will return, and will add this restaurant to my regular rotation. Overall a delightful atmosphere, impeccable service, and excellent food.
Finally went to brunch at "The Grandaddy Brunch place." If you like unlimited mimosas, great! The blueberry sage sausage patty is good, but the sausage link made me gag. The best things are: crab claws (but they're cold), raw oysters and cold boiled shrimp. Everything else was just standard fare. Price is $43. I would rather have huevos rancheros and a couple bloody marys.
We were visiting San Antonio for a conference. We were also celebrating my daughter's engagement. Had requested river seating and it was just delicious, relaxed, and beautiful! The margaritas were on the expensive side but HUGE and delicious! Thank you Las Canarias for holding our reservation and giving us exactly what we'd hoped for!
Enjoyed the Fiesta River Parade from their patio with a nice bottle of wine. Food was very
Good but if you go for this event know it will be a buffet rather than their usual table service. Pricey but there is no better way to enjoy this event so worth every penny.
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.
