Californian | Castro, San Francisco

Every dish was immaculate: flavorful, balanced, gorgeously colorful and felt both comfortingly familiar yet new. Our server Gerald was fantastic. The hostess was welcoming and gracious. The space is cozy and intimate and well appointed. We loved the delicate glassware. All the staff seemed to operate smoothly as one collective body, respecting each other and enjoying one another’s company. Overall fantastic experience. More

Our third time at Canela. They have a great menu and a wide variety of tapas to share. Came here for Sunday dinner with a guest from out-of-town. We particularly enjoyed the squid ink paella (45 minutes to prepare), grilled octopus, and veggie flatbread with arugula. Friendly and prompt service. More

The food was delicious but it definitely wasn’t a cheap meal. Unfortunately, we were seated in the back next to a stack of chairs and the refrigerator, so we didn’t get to appreciate the atmosphere. I also received an email from Opentable saying the restaurant reported us as a no-show, so that’s a little irritating. More

Discover Castro

The neon-lit Castro Theater is a historic anchor for this happy and humorous hood, where storefront names are as cheeky as they are descriptive, and the sun always seems to be shining. Bustling bars with strong libations line Castro street, and there are a host of delicious options if you’re in the mood for new-American, Californian, or Italian fare. Nighttime is definitely party time, with flair at the forefront, and weekend brunch often serves as a decadent continuation of those festivities.
