A word from Granada Bistro
The heart and inspiration for Granada is the beloved and pre-existing Granada Bistro. This space has been renovated and re-imagined in industrial chic design, serving farm-to-table ingredients sourced from Central Coast farmers and purveyors. Dishes are inspired by Mediterranean culture, French and Spanish cuisine. Small plates, charcuterie and the freshest local seafood, meats, and produce are complemented by an eclectic wine list including Spanish and French selections, and a range of the Central Coast’s finest artisan wine producers

  • "Nice place, friendly staff, "good" food/selection. Had to pay for bread with appetizers/"small plates"(most places it's part of table service). ."

  • "Unfortunately we ate inside- very noisy. The food was so-so. If you eat here, do it outside. We won't return- there are a lot of places to eat in SLO that have better food."

  • "Delicious, although we simply ordered several appetizers. Our waitress had a gift for timing: bringing the next dish when we finished the previous one. We plan in returning to explore the rest of the menu. AND it's a restaurant in a hotel."

  • "AWESOME! The food was great! The atmosphere was beautiful and relaxing. We loved the outside seating area because it was protected on 3 sides and not windy or chilly. The service was charming. Our waitress was so pleasant and knew just the perfect drink to recommend when asked. Try the "welcome" drink! Light and refreshing!"

  • "Thursday night with the Farmers Market in full swing was fun and entertaining. The food is delicious. We tried the Burrata bruchetta, Duck Confit, and Ceviche. All good."

  • "We just had our first visit to Granada and can't wait to experience it again. The atmosphere is unlike anything else in SLO county - a great mix of old world with a modern update. The food and wine were delicious. The vibe felt as if we were in NYC, LA, Chicago or Europe. It's like a great urban bistro. Bring a sweater or jacket for the outdoor seating. Highly recommended."

  • "I was in SLO with my son to register for school and with since he was occupied with his college friends I went looking for a nice dinner. I went on line and found the Granada Bistro that apparently has an attached Boutique Hotel. All I can say is the evening was a treat. From the hand rubbed and pan seared steak (I think it was achiote paste) to the wine followed by dessert, I took my time and enjoyed myself all the while being attended to as if I was a special guest. I plan on being in the area several times a year and will definitely go back to the Granada Bistro to try the scallops but also to stay at the hotel as well. Some dinners next to me said it was incredible."

  • "We had the hamburger, steak and lamb and they all were very good but the best was the cheese cake!"

  • "We really enjoyed our table at Granada because we were close enough to the table next to us to carry on interesting conversations with 2 different couples. The food was very good too. The nettle pasta was interesting, though a little too salty. The fresh salmon was excellent."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I wouldn't necessarily consider this a tapas bar when comparing it to something similar, like Luna Red. The restaurant had great ambiance, but is a little on the smaller side, so I was happy we reserved through OpenTable. The service was wonderful and the staff is very friendly. I asked for a recommendation for brunch between an omelet and a salad, thinking both would fill me up. My parents and boyfriend got hearty egg dishes, while my salad could have passed for a side dish at the same price! That was my only problem in our experience there. I will definitely make sure to order a sandwich or breakfast item next time around!"

  • "Granada has the BEST service in SLO, as well as fine quality food. We always dine here whenever we stay in SLO. We recommended Granada to all of our friends and family. "

  • "Visiting from Seattle. Went to Granada with my Cal Poly gal and three of her friends for Easter lunch. Wonderful! Great menu, great service. I had heard good things and it surpassed the reviews. Will definitely recommend and return"

  • "When we went to visit our college son, we wanted to take him (and his friends) to a cool, sophisticated restaurant. As we were staying in the Granada (gorgeous hotel) we decided to give the Bistro a try. The food was tremendous, creative and original, and delicious. The chef is a master, who came out and greeted us during the evening. The manager also came by to say hi, the service was first class and matched the quality of the food. My husband travels the world for work. This bistro matches anything, anywhere. I would highly recommend it, and will both stay at the Granada and dine at the Bistro when I next visit San Luis Obispo."

  • "We had sushi appetizer that popped out at us in the "we gotta try that!" yellow tail category. The coffee served in large splendidly silver carafe was perfect, I had the Caesar salad, never enough anchovy and my son raved about the chicken sandwich, mostly about the sauce. The only down side was that it took them a little while to notice we had arrived....standing around awkwardly."

  • "Fabulous food. Disappointed with wine list. I would like to see expansion of wine to add more local wines at a reasonable price."

  • "Five of us went for a special occasion. There was a large party celebrating, and the management graciously moved our party into the adjacent hotel lobby area. This was much more intimate for us and perfectly quiet and comfortable. I really appreciate the management seeing the situation and taking care of it so seamlessly. Our waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable about the various menu items. The food was delicious and well-prepared and well-presented."

  • "My second (and last) try at the Granada was for lunch with friends. The setting is great, but the food was very slow (30+ minutes with few other tables occupied) and not worth waiting for: Two orders of fish & chips were fried too hard to cut, the "cobb salad" was a small head of romain cut in half, sprinkled with a few bacon bits and a couple of shreds of onion, sitting in some gluey dressing, and the salmon requested "well done" showed up rare had to go back to the kitchen. Staff did apologize for the wait, but offered nothing to fill the time or hungry stomachs. I wish they'd go back to take Hospitality 101 again and bring this place up to its potential."

  • "Went for lunch, hadn't checked menu beforehand and didn't realize their lunch menu didn't include any type of real tapas. Just a bunch of sandwiches and overpriced appetizers. Cheese plate was decent, clams and mussels decent but portions were small and not all the clams opened. The ceviche had way too much lemon juice, that's all it tasted like. However the waiter didn't charge us for it. Good service, nice ambiance."

  • "Naturally they were very busy, but because of the occasion we didn't mind the extra wait. The atmosphere was great, which made the wait painless (I'm sure it helped that I had great company). The set menu for that night was varied and everything we ordered tasted great. The service was a little awkward but I would toss this up to a hectic night. We were sat on the second floor terrace which was nice. It was a chilly night but they had ample heaters. The second floor felt lonelier than the packed first floor but it offered a quiet place to talk over dinner. Being a wino I had to look through the wine list which not only had great bottles (DRC if you are looking to spoil yourself!) but also had witty descriptions to boot."

  • "Granada Bistro is a very romantic restaurant because of its interior design. I was very happy about that because this was where my girlfriend and I went for valentines day dinner. However, there are much better restaurants for those who would call themselves foodies. I am happy to have tried it out, but I don't plan on going back for sometimes. This is probably a once a year place."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed dining here on Valentine's Day. The menu was great, food delicious, and ambiance lovely. Highly recommend."

  • "Great food, great ambience, great service! We took our family there for dinner after a day visiting the area. Our table was ready on time. The outdoor dining by the fire was beautiful and everyone loved their food. The entire staff was very friendly and attentive. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others."
