Was in the area and wanted to get some food. I was looking for a restaurant with parking and decided to go in. The bar was kind of busy for a Thursday night and the food area was kind of empty since it was past 9pm. The service was extremely slow and it was the barman who took out order... More

Typical Tex-Mex food. Disappointed when my Enchilada verde arrived with shredded beef inside (quite a good serving by the way) mixed with red sauce. Verde is green! It did have green sauce over the enchilada but the sweet red sauce inside quite ruined the taste and effect. Asked waitress the price of a glass of house wine (no wine or... More

This place was close to our hotel so we tried it out. I had the seafood salad which, to it's credit, had lots of shrimp and crab on it. It came on top of a few tomato slices and a bed of lettuce in a crispy shell with ranch dressing on the top. I ordered it with no avocado, which... More

We had dinner here on the recommendation of the staff at the hotel we were staying at. It was easily "walkable" which we appreciated and the menu looked interesting. We were not disappointed with the food but did feel it was a little bit pricy for the serving size of the dishes we ordered - could be that we are... More

I have tried several other Celia's Restaurants in the Bay Area and the San Bruno continues to be my favorite, which is especially convenient, since I live around the corner. The service at San Bruno has always been consistent and on-point. The food is always abundant and tasty. I have never had anything negative to say about this location, although... More

It was back to school night and we had a sitter so we went for a drink and some appetizers. We ordered the combo appetizer plate and it was meh, happy hour special, what do you expect?

Im sorry to hear about your appetizer not being up to par. i would like to know how we could make it better. Did it need to be hotter, how can we make it a great happy hour deal? More
