“Very Good Restaurant in La Mansion del Rio”
Reviewed September 2, 2010

We had dinner in the elegant dining room as it was too hot to comfortably sit outside by the river. It was a bit on the early side and the restaurant wasn't busy, but it still took awhile for the aperitifs to arrive. We elected the three course fixed price menu which was a good deal at $45; we chose our own wine rather than going with the restaurant's selection (for an additional $15 per head). The shrimp and the pork loin were very good main courses; the salads, the dessert and cheese were very good as well. Overall, the service was excellent.
A sour note was something rarely seen in a high end restaurant. A couple finished dinner shortly after we arrived. Our view of the river was across their table. Through nearly all our dinner It remained as they left it--white napkins crumpled on the table, half-eaten dessert plates, nearly empty wine glasses, chairs pushed back from the table. After awhile the scene acquired the quality of an uninspired still-life painting. Aside from that one lapse, Las Canarias is a very good restaurant.

“Simply the Best in San Antonio”
Reviewed September 1, 2010

Lately I've been spoiled beyond any reasonable measure:. London (The Connaught, Rules, Scott's, The Bleeding Heart, Le Gavroche and J. Sheekey's), Paris (Taillevent, Le Diapason, Le Chaumont Montmartre, Le Train Bleu and Le Moulin de la Galette), New York (Oceana, Il Cortile, Le Bernadin, Peter Luger and The Mill River Inn), The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs (The Charles Court) and the Palace Arms in Denver's Brown Palace Hotel and the Barolo Grill, St. Louis (Frank Papa's in Brentwood, Eleven-Eleven and Mike Shannon's), Milwaukee (Karl Rashe's "quintessential" German Restaurant) , Chicago (Cape Cod and the International Club Room at the Drake), The Greek Islands and Mizuno, and countless thousands of great restaurants too numerous too mention. Las Canarias takes a back seat to none! Succulent, medium rare Colorado lamb done to a turn, exquisite tempting starters, desserts and service promt and efficient. I ahve been blessed beyond imagination, having eaten where Kings and Queens, literally, have gone before and long to return. Why I've been so fortunate, i cannot fathom. That I am, I will forever be grateful for such magnificent fortune. And Las Canarias? it simply ranks with the best in the world which I have had the incredible luck to enjoy. Gracias, mi amigos on the Riverwalk in San Antonio!

“The Best Restaurant in San Antonio”
Reviewed August 19, 2010

We had the pleasure of eating here last night as part of a celebration. Let me start by saying my family and I are very hard to please. This restaurant was by far the best dinner we have had in years. The food, service, and wine list are on par with any restaruant in New York. Thank you for giving us the chance to really enjoy your restaurant.

“Sunday brunch, best ever”
Reviewed July 26, 2010

This has got to be one of the best sunday brunch in America. Everthing from their omelets to pancakes to smoked salmon to prime rib was amazing.. not to mention their endless dessert bar.. our table to a window overlooking the river and a small water fall was great.. The service was great never had to wait for coffee or mimosas better yet before i even asked they had it refilled.. worth every penny and will go back everytime I am in san antonio. make reservations

“Undeniably the best in San Antonio”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

My wife and I had dinner here last evening and it was everything we hoped it would be. The atmosphere is very romantic, the food is spectacular with an accompanying wine list that is perfect. The servers are very knowledgeable and their recommendations were delicious. It was a beautiful dinner with a table by the window, the chaos of the river walk just outside. We dined to the sound of a softly strumming guitar and enjoyed some of the best seafood either of us has ever had. 10 out of 10!
