    Granada does such a beautiful professional job. Hannah was a lovely server, the Graduation brunch menu and food was excellent. Strawberry salad, cinnamon roll and waffles with chix were all wonderful. Excellent cocktails served in beautiful glassware. Thank you for a special meal.

    We had a lovely meal al fresco at Granada Bistro on Friday evening. We shared the Spring salad with fresh sugar snap peas, roasted pistachios, greens, and roasted asparagus. My husband had the Beef Fillet special and I had the Borracha Shrimp for our main course. Both were delicious, and the outdoor patio atmosphere was perfect!

    One of our favorite spots on the Central Coast and perhaps we caught them off an off night. The food was delicious, my wife had a seared Ahi salad and I had the Mole Chicken and we totally enjoyed our meals. Being in a world-class wine region and offering only two wines from the area was surprising, and the other options were not, in my mind, worthy options. Our server was really energetic on the front end but disappeared when we ask where our entrees were and it was a disappointment afterwards.

    Granada consistently proves to be the best restaurant in all of SLO. The mother's day brunch menu was perfect. As someone who doesn't tolerate wheat well, I wasn't initially thrilled that I could only get the frittata and the salad - but then both absolutely blew me away. Granada transforms simple meals into amazing culinary experiences and brings creativity to each plate on their menu. The strawberry goat cheese on the salad and the creme fraiche on the frittata... phew. Unreal. I hope both will be permanent menu items because I would get them allll the time. My mom loved the brunch and my mimosa was excellent as per usual. Also the potatoes. Best breakfast potatoes in town - why do other places else serve them mushy instead of crispy?? We love the crisp! My only criticism, which isn't a criticism as much as a desperate plea, is PLEASE BRING BACK THE BITTERSWEET!! I miss it every time I go there - it's my favorite drink ever!

    Server was cool, but rarely saw him. Had to flag him down (or the manager Jason) any time we wanted to order. Loved the dim lighting. Food was excellent, except “15 minute Brownie” which was served dangerously hot and immediately turned ice cream on top into proverbial soup. Something was also terribly wrong with the boasted “reverse osmosis” tap water.. overwhelming plastic-container taste. Switched to bottled flat water immediately. The wine list is totally obscure, and seems to be constructed around some kind of buddy system with start-ups in Paso Robles. My date and I enjoyed each other’s company and our mains thoroughly (I had the salmon) despite the inattentive service. Granada comes off as just a place to be seen in a small, little town—and there is no premium on service accordingly.

    I have to say this restaurant does not give up on its customers. The first time dining here I did have a poor experience and felt unwelcome. However, after writing about this meal I was contacted by one of the managers in hopes for them to learn more about our visit and better any future ones. The manager offered me compensation and invited me back to see what Granada Bistro really has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised when I did come back because the situation couldn't have been handled better. The staff, food and ambiance was on par and I really do appreciate how this restaurant wants to keep up a good name.

    Our server was great, and I’ve always enjoyed coming here for dinner. We tried Easter brunch this time, which I know can be a bit of a crap shoot. I’m guessing they were understaffed since it took over an hour and fifteen minutes for our second course of a prix fixe menu to come out. I enjoyed the first course, but the second course of fried chicken and waffles was frankly awful. The chicken had sat in a warmer or something for too long because the breading was soggy and the meat mushy and inedible. The waffle was dry with just a drizzle of syrup. I quietly let our server know that the chicken had an issue and I’d like to take the rest of the food home, and she kindly put a fresh piece of chicken in the to go box. The third course of sorbet was delicious and refreshing. The French press coffee was also tasty. I’ll stick to coming in for the regular menu. I think just an amalgamation of issues on a holiday was the problem, and I’ll still return.
