    The servers were very friendly and attentive. Food was hit or miss. The setas tapa was excellent, but the pulpo was overcooked and mealy, and the paella also seemed like it had been under a warmer too long.

    Hi there, this is Mat the chef and owner. I am glad you liked the service! I am also glad that you liked the setas. They are also one of my favorites. I am sorry that you did not enjoy some of the other dishes however. I am going to message you to find out more details. Thank you for your visit and sorry to let you down. Sincerely, Mat

    Consistently consistent. Friendly and professional team with surprisingly affordable, high quality tapas. Brought 2 folks from out of town because I knew there was something for everyone and that we would not be disappointed.

    I've been coming to Canela for years and it never disappoints. I've been with just one or two friends, and have been here in larger groups when celebrating a birthday or other occasion. The staff is always engaging and the service superb. I often go for some favorites, such as the chicken croquettes, but also try new dishes as well. I don't think I've ever had anything that wasn't flavorful. We got pretty stuffed on this last visit and sadly had to skip dessert. I recommend that everyone who goes here tries to save some room. They have wonderful desserts and their churros are a must!
    Canela Bistro & Wine BarResponded on April 28, 2024
    Thank you so much! We really appreciate your loyalty and are so happy that you enjoy your visits with us. Thank you from the whole team! Sincerely, Mat

    All the Tapas were delicious but the Paella was seriously lacking flavor and also had close to no chorizo in it even though we ordered the seafood and chorizo dish.
    Canela Bistro & Wine BarResponded on April 19, 2024
    Hi I am Mat the chef and owner. I am so sorry that the paella disappointed on your visit! I am going to send you a private note now. We appreciate you coming to visit us and for the feedback. Sincerely, Mat

    One of my favorite restaurants in the Castro for years now. Attentive staff with seasonal changes to the menu that keep things new. I always bring out of town guests here and Canela never disappoints.
