I reserved a 12 pm brunch for me, my sister and mom on Sunday to celebrate my birthday early. I have always walked by and seen the restaurant packed! The food, drinks and service went above and beyond my expectations! My favorite dish (and what looked like the rest of the guests on the patio will agree) was the banana bread French toast. It was so delicious, with the surprise of savory candied walnuts. I will be back again someday soon to try lunch and dinner.

Granada Bistro is a beautiful restaurant with lovely food and views! This was our third time dining there and each experience has been wonderful. It was such a pleasant surprise to offer a well priced prix fixe Easter menu, as opposed to the typical obscenely overpriced and overindulgent Easter buffet. Food service tends to be a bit slow, but worthy of the wait and does provide more time to enjoy the ambiance. Wonderful start to the Easter holiday!

Lovely atmosphere in a 1920's vintage hotel outdoor patio, excellent service, food is delicious, although menu was somehow reduced due to Covid but the quality of food is not compromised in any way, overall it was a lovely dining experience and I do recommend.

I was a little disappointed when I made my reservation for outdoor dining on the patio, but the hostess insisted we sit inside because there was no room outside. I was looking forward to sitting out on the patio and made a reservation for the patio thinking that’s how it would work. Apparently a reservation isn’t good enough? I watched as people continued to get seated out on the patio seating area... I guess there was room out there after all? Despite the initial disappointment, the food and drinks were tasty. Our server hardly ever came around. Which was ok, we just had to wait a little long to order drinks or to pay the bill. I would say the overall service of the evening was a bit lacking. Thankful for the good company and good food I was able to enjoy though.

We had the actual best time at Granada over the weekend. The hummus was amazing, the lamb bolognese was delicious and the steak was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. Our waitress + the bartender were so kind, so informed and brought us some of the best cocktails I’ve had to date! Highly recommend.

Super cute ambiance, every detail thought of, even lit candles in the restroom and on little sconce/alcoves in the bar! Our server, Lauren, who was also tending the bar, was warm, attentive, cheerful and prompt! It was cold, though, and we were cold sitting indoors as wind came through the open door...maybe door was kept open due to the need for fresh air during the COVID pandemic? We didn't ask...but we were all quite cold by the end of our meal. Would be great if there was a selection of organic/biodynamic wines on wine list. I did find a really clean Gruner Veltliner that was tasty.
Next time, we will bring jackets or even lap blankets and maybe our own bottle of clean wine to enjoy during the meal as we did love the ambiance and we would like to dine there again.

first time having dinner there and I can't wait to go back. Food was great, had the lamb bolognese and Brussel sprouts. Highly recommend both. Wednesday is half off bottles under $100 so we enjoyed a great bottle that was recommended by our waitress. I've been going there for brunch for awhile and love it so glad dinner is on the same level. Cant wait to go back, great place for a date night.

Was a lovely dining experience. Food and cocktails were wonderful, and the wait staff was great.

Not sure if the hostess for the weekend was new, but a few times we had odd interactions. I don’t think she let our waitress know we were there, which resulted in our waitress not greeting us for 10-15 min, which she was super apologetic for, but totally wasn’t her fault. Another time we were grabbing drinks in the terrace area (we were told was for hotel guests only, which we were). Same hostess sat a table, took their beverage order, then as we asked if we could also grab drinks from her she told us she’d send over our waiter (the waiter never came). :/

Not a big deal, and we had a lovely time all weekend overall, but figured I’d share the experience.

The ambiance of the terrace was nice however the service was not great and neither was the food. My wife ordered the Lamb Bolognese ($26) and it tasted like unseasoned ground meat with a splash of sauce. I ordered the Tablas Creek lamb burger which was a little dry. The service was subpar in the sense that my water glass sat empty the entire time and the appetizer plates weren’t cleared until our dinner plates were cleared.

Patio is always pleasant. The patio has always been one of my favorite places to dine on a pleasant day. The ambiance at Granda Bistro patio is perfect. Service was top notch with pleasant staff. Food was yummy, portions are not huge here but everything is always fresh. Recommend this location to anyone wanting a pleasant relaxing meal and cocktail.

What a jewel of a place! Lovely outdoor terrace where we had a 3-course, well thought out Thanksgiving dinner. Service was impeccable from our entrance to dessert. They even called ahead to warn us about dining outside and the turkey supply problem. Food was very good. Highly recommend this bistro if you're in SLO.
