    Great night at Grandada! Excellent service and stellar dishes. We loves the Brussels sprouts, fish of the day, salad with burrata and the cocktails were very tasty too.

    Great ambiance on the patio! It was a chilly night, but the heaters kept us warm. Service was very friendly and attentive. Brussels Sprout appetizer was tasty - the capers really sealed the deal. Entrees were so-so - the duck was a smallish leg on a huge piece of cornbread. We never did find the cranberries. The Ahi Soba Salad was nice, but the dressing overwhelmed the fish. We’ll probably go back for another try - as the menu had some other interesting items

    Small portion on main dish of prix fixe holiday menu. Undercooked (almost raw) green beans, and thin garlic potatoes. Nice atmosphere and great service.

    We had a delightful brunch on the patio. The only reason food got 4 instead of 5 stars was that I asked for my eggs to be poached medium well but the whites weren’t even fully cooked and of course the yolk was completely liquid. I realize many people like eggs that way but I did make a special request. Runny whites are gross. I ate them anyway. Everything else was nice including the staff.

    It was cold out and we had asked to be seated inside in our reservation, but were seated by an open door that they would not close. That made it very cold, like we were sitting outside. Recommend some draperies or something for the open doors to make it easy for servers to get outside, but to not freeze out the indoor patrons.

    Ordered the breakfast burrito for brunch, and it was worse than the one they serve in the Cal Poly Cafeteria. It was so bland and just tasted like straight lime juice. Service was good, food was bad.

    We had dinner at 7:00 and they were already out of the item we had been looking forward to. My husband said his duck was very good. The pasta that I had could have done with some finishing salt. The vegetables in the pasta were seasoned wonderfully but one I sprinkled a bit of salt on the pasta it was fantastic.

    We went for brunch. I like outdoor dining, but it was a little chilly. They lit the fire pit and it helped quite a bit. The restaurant had a nice Ambiance and was clean. Wait staff was nice and attentive. Our waiter Doug, offered his favorite options (Chorizo hash and chorizo burrito) when my son asked. My sons both loved the suggestions. I had avocado toast. Very good. And my husband enjoyed his Benedict. Food was perfect size. Not huge portions, just right.

    Very inconsistent. Ahi taco app to share AMAZING. Pappardelle lacking in sage and butter-squash but very heavy on cream. Soba ahi salad delicious. Risotto was awful. My guess is they ran out. It came out ten minutes after everyone else’s food, little portion of non Arborio rice that seemed stir fried and dry with a few mushroom shavings. I would have sent it back if everyone hadn’t already been waiting for it… dessert brownie yummy but so sweet. Drinks good all around. We were told our table was ready 15 min before scheduled arrival, we arrived on time then waited for our table. No big deal, just odd. Ambiance is lovely, just go with people who know current menu - for the price they should be better overall.

    We enjoyed excellent service at Granada Bistro. Upside: the cocktails were excellent. We had a Brooklyn and a Fresh Start. Both very good. Appetizers were a highlight. The large serving of Brussels Sprouts were very good, with a hint of lemon adding a tasty twist. The Basil Pesto Hummus was also very enjoyable. Great flavor, not overpowering. We would have ranked the stars higher but for the steak. We ordered a "prime NY Steak" which at $56 should be a great cut of meat. It came out looking like something you'd get at Sizzler. Oddly gray in color, a bit overdone and lacking in flavor -- other than tasting mostly like salt. Our other entre was the ACHIOTE CHICKEN, which was good. A tough one to grade as the setting was lovely, service good, but you just have to nail the premier steak on the menu.

    The menu was limited. Our server was fantastic and that was it. The foods were fine. Not spectacular. We sat next to a loud group so it was not pleasant. We sat outside and the are was nice and warm. Overall, it was ok. Middle of the road.

    The only problem I have is that we went on the first night of our time in SLO and now I am in huge trouble trying to find another restaurant that measures up to the Granada. The food was amazing and creative. The service was so prompt and friendly. And the decor was simply perfect. We loved everything about it!
