We had a terrific time! Especially loved the unique wine selection, service and the ambiance
Awesome food, friendly staff 😋 tasty Sangria, highly recommend,
My friends and I have been going to Canela for a few years it is always been wonderful. The service is Always friendly and attentive. The food is that going to Spain. I highly recommend this restaurant. I am so glad it survived Covid.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner and enjoyed the lovely and helpful staff. FANTASTIC FOOD!!
Wonderful food and people. A great secret in the Castro. Felt like I was in Madrid.
The food was excellent and our waiter Ioen was so delightful. He was a great server as well as all other waiter. We will definitely be back.
It was great!
Excellent Service. Escargot tasted like a dish from Mexico and not France - steak and wine were delicious
Review for outdoor dining. Amazing Rosh Hashana menu. Duck consumee with challah, frisee salad, halibut and honey cake of perfection.
Thank you for joining us for Rosh Hashanah! All the best in the New Year!
Delicious tapas + amazing service! Will definitely be back!
Outstanding service and incredible food
Great food and service was superb
Get heat lamps
The staff was incredibly welcoming and the service was some of the best I have had in San Francisco. The food was all delicious and the prices were reasonable
Amazing Food ! Our waiter made the whole experience great ! Definitely recommend to try. Make sure to dress for outdoor seating it is san francisco ! But Definitely did not take away from the great food and wine.
Understanding the challenges working around the COVID environment, will only rate the food and service. This is our third time there and likely our last. The food has declined and not worthy of the cost. The service was great, informative and friendly. A big turn off was that on the electronic payment pad, the suggested tip starts at 20% to 23% to 25%. Of course there is the option of creating a unique tip but inconvenient with the waiter standing over the table waiting. Maybe it is just me but seems a bit presumptuous.
Michael, thanks for your support and your visit. I'm sorry we let you down and will send you a private message. YES, COVID is very challenging for restaurants with increased cleaning schedules, required staff COVID testing, setting up/breaking down our dining room outside, daily with a smaller staff. iPads are cleanable vs. pen/paper. Unfortunately, we aren't able to leave our iPads on the tables unattended outside. We are just trying to stay in the game. I truly wish you all the best, Mat
Great outdoor atmosphere.
This is a cute place and the food is good the portions are just a bit small. It’s tapas style so make sure to get plenty!
What a lovely time :) service was friendly , food was delicious, and can never complain about wine~
We have been to Canela many times and each time we have been delighted with the food. Their Octopus, Steak and Lamb are our favorites. The service is always great and very helpful. We just went and ate outside. It was even better than inside.
Great food and great service. Sat outside as expected so there was some activity on the street but it was a nice, quiet night. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Food is excellent. I will return and recommend
Fantastic food, extremely impressed, every dish was stellar and unique. Service was very kind and friendly. Love the outdoor seating, made me feel safe. Highly recommend!!
Outdoor dining exposes diners to street persons roaming on market street.
Came for an early dinner and had a great time. Everything we ordered was super delicious and the service was attentive and. friendly. Definitely going back!
As always, Chris and Paul were friendly, fun, and accommodating. We enjoyed meeting Owen for the first tine. We’re so grateful they’ve stayed open during the pandemic, giving many of us a place to go to hold onto the sense of community that makes the neighborhood special. Delicious food and wine; exceptional; and a beautiful throw that will now be my dining out throw for chillier nights — what more could you ask for?!
First dinner out since the start of the Pandemic! A perfect socially distanced and safe meal with fantastic Paella and the best team in the business! It’s the reason Canela SF is in my San Francisco top 10! 🙏❤️🙏
Great Sunday lunch treat, albeit sitting on Market Street with the cast of characters wandering by. Service was awesome, wines were great, food was tasty.
This was one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. The food was absolutely amazing and the recommendations from Paul, our waiter, were amazing! I highly suggest coming to this place! And the service from all of the staff was very pleasant and everyone was super helpful and just the nicest people to talk to!
The service and food were amazing!
We tried this restaurant 2 weeks in a row and we had a fabulous experience. Amazing crew, great food and drinks. If you have not tried this restaurant yet, please do so, you won’t be regret.
Always delivers. Great food and staff
I reserved a table for three for 9pm when I got there they were already closing up. Before I could get there I had called them earlier that my reservation was at 9pm sharp, the young man I spoke to was very aware and polite and said I was all set. I was very upset that I arrived the staff had told me that they were closing soon and that I only had little time about 30min to order food due to the whole virus. They should’ve called me at least that they were closing so I wouldn’t have to waste my time going there. The young man apologized and gave me and my friends about an hour or so for dinner and free dessert which was very nice of him. We told him he didn’t have to but he felt bad and offered to. We stayed and I have to say their food was amazing! And their wine and dessert as well. The service was good and our waitress was very polite so we all gave him a big tip to end the night. I would definitely come back here just would love it if they’d call you for any delays, etc.
We had a wonderful time enjoying one of our favorite SF restaurants. Dining outside was not as bad as you might think. The heaters kept us comfortable and the attentive wait staff kept us fed well. The food was excellent (shrimp, steak with lollipop kale and curry cauliflower, melon with ham and peppers, and potatoes). Our dessert of churros with chocolate was also delicious. So glad that they have been able to make this work during the current times. Highly recommend Canela for a leisurely evening of good food!
Super nice and chill place with greats customer service. Wine selection as great as food selection!
The only thing better than the service was the sangria. Excellent work and a safe place to grab some delicious food.
The service and food was amazing!!! We absolutely loved the staff.
Exceptional service. Food was wonderful. Great value for money.
