Canela Bistro Bar
It's been foundReservations are highly recommended, especially near the weekend. The menu changes subtly according to season, but we have never had a mediocre dish. Here's a place where you can try everything. (Plenty of vegetarian options.) The wines are carefully chosen and reasonably priced. Try the unfamiliar Spanish selections.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a real find!What an amazing surprise to find the neighborhood gem in the Castro district. The menu is creative and food delicious! Plates vary in size to share, which I highly recommend. The more you explore the more amazed you will be! This restaurant is now an Open Table favorite on my phone.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & ServiceThe food and service are great.

I advised the restaurant that it was our 25th anniversary when I made the reservations. To our surprise we were congratulated by most of the staff starting with the Host as soon as we arrived.
It was very nice. All the staff made us feel so good and welcomed. We were treated with Champagne and then when the time to order came up all the suggestiions paid off , we had a great meal.
The Tapas are excellent specially the Coca bread (kind of a thin crust pizza but with a great consistency between soft and crunchy)
We picked the Chorizo and cheese, it was excellent and so tasty ! The Gambas, Croquetas, Papas Bravas, Tortilla Espanola, tres leches pudding and churros! (there goes the Diet!)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, a very inventiveAs usual, a very inventive menu, great food and service.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an amazing tapas restaurantThis is an amazing tapas restaurant!

HalfwayThe food was impeccable. Halfway through our meal, our servers changed. Our first server was really awesome- attentive but not too much. Our second server kind of pressured us to order more food, then dessert, then coffee, which we politely declined because we were all too full. But I will definitely be back.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThey were absolutely great,They were absolutely great, given 3 in our party was one hour late on a Friday night!
