    I was very pleased with the service, the ambiance, and the overall experience. Our apitizer was great, My Fiance's food was great, I have celiacs, the Gluten free menu was adequate, but I elected to have the "Steak of the Day" it was a Ribeye, and I was not very satisfied with it, I thought it was over priced for the cut of meat, and overall not very good. Overall I was very pleased with this establishment, and will give it a second chance, I just won't be ordering a Ribeye again. The lobster Mashed Potatoes where amazing though, and this is the first place I have been to that offered them Gluten free.

    The food was amazing, I have never tasted food so delicious. I have been to Blue Canyon before and have always loved the service. The wait staff is usually friendly, the service is reasonable, and ambiance is incredible. When I went the other night, my waiter was rude and treated me like I was an idiot. But I wasn't going to let him stop me from having a good time and I'm definitely going back. The food is worth it =)

    Service was slow at the start. We were not shared the specials like tables around us. We had small table and dinner came before we were finished with salad. Barely had Room to eat. Wedge was swimming in balsamic. Linguini was clumpy. Plenty of lobster however. Finally Valle nearly crashed our car racing a truck in the small parking lot.

    I went to the Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern to celebrate my birthday. Their clambake is excellent. The food was delicious, everything but the clams are endless portions so you definitely get enough to eat. The scenery is beautiful, the ambiance is pleasant and the service is wonderful. I would highly recommend The Blue Canyon.

    Adorned like a mountain lodge. Friendly greeters reservation ready. The restaraunt was not very busy, and we were sat on the deck that has windows - no view except reflection in the glass as it was dark out. The server showed little interest after we made our drink selection, the beer was cold and my wife enjoyed her drink as well. We waited what seamed like forever to recieve our first course, my soup arrived about room temperature and her salad looked less than appealing. We had to flag down our server to receive our dinner bread. Main course just a hint over room temp, medium rare was rare. Atmosphere was less than inviting. Would have rather saved 50.00 AMD gone to Texas Roadhouse, cheap silverware but never a problem with service.

Very responsive - but never felt rushed. Portions were just right also. Can't wait to go back - with friends this time.

    We were very impressed by the setting and interior. the soup and salad were outstanding. However our entrees were over cooked. My husbands steak was barely pink. Definitely not medium rare. I ordered the red snapper special and mine was too well done also. I think our waiter just forgot to pick them up and let them sit as there was quite a long wait between courses. we will return but not on a Sat. nite and not for $36 entrees!

    We went to Blue Canyon the last 2 years for our sons Birthday. We had a party of 6 and everyone in the party enjoyed their meal. Our reservation was for 5:30 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was crowded so I was glad to have a reservation. My family enjoys fish so this is a great restaurant because there are many options on the menu.

    Disappointed. Food was OK, but service lacked - Had to beg from bread, no refills on drinks, never got a steak knife; server made us feel people next to us a lot more important because they got clambakes. And somebody needs to tell them that they are not yet a "fine dining" restaurant. $45 for 14 OZ Ribeye special? Really? RED THE STEAKHOUSE HAS A 16 OZ PRIME FOR LESS. I know I am leaving out the scoop of mashed potatoes and 4 green beans, but really Folks. We want to love this place because it is close by, has remarkable ambience, an imaginative chef and very good overall bar. But it just misses the mark enough in a few key areas, that added all up, makes for a so-so night. I think people are afraid to criticize because it is so popular

    The food was very good (the red snapper was perfection) and the server was friendly and prompt, however we had to wait 25 minutes to get our check. It was a little difficult to hold a conversation as this restaurant is quite noisy. We did get the table we requested, but it seems that there were too many tables crowded together. My husband was boxed in the corner, and my chair back hit another diner’s chair at the next table. This is a pricy restaurant and one we think of for special occasions.

    It was quite crowded due to a nearby hotel convention. So I am sure that the noise level would be reduced on the average night. Also I would suggest that parents keep their energetic young ones home if choosing this restaurant. We had a nearby family continually taking their 3 for a walk to quiet them down. Eventually they were rolling on the floor. Is this really a restaurant choice for young kids when you are going to drop $50 per person on a good meal? I would have preferred a little less noise. But the service level, decor, and meal were great nonetheless.

    Dined on 9/24/2014
    The food was very good but a bit overpriced. Although we had asked for a quiet table when making reservation through Open Table, we were given the nearest table to the open kitchen so of course it wasn't quiet. Also had a lot of server traffic collecting food, etc. In general, the place is noisy given that there is nothing to absorb noise that I could see. If you are looking for an overpriced good food meal, this is your place.

    We had a very nice experience, but just a couple of minor "beefs" (pun intended). The special steak on the menu, a 14-oz NY strip, was very good, prepared closer to medium than the requested medium-rare, but quite pricey at $46, to which it didn't quite stand up. Also, while not exactly rushed, I felt that the service was a bit faster than what would represent a relaxing dinner. Lobster-tomato bisque was very good, Caesar salad just right, and a half order of pasta with small chunks of lobster excellent. A nice venue, nice view from the terrace side, and not too noisy.

    We visited Blue Canyon to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they didn't disappoint. We've known what we wanted to eat there for months. There Bay Scallops are amazing. I dare say they are better than steak. The salad and crème brûlée were perfect. Can't wait til next year or when I win the lottery to come back.

    I had yo go here for a class project and I was to observe the fine dining technique and I wasn't impressed at all. My mother and I were over looked most of the time, because we weren't a party of 8. We felt ignored. The food was amazing. We tried to order dessert and she kept going to the big party and ignoring us. So we didn't order dessert and ask for the check but yet it took her awhile to get the check as well. I felt like as if I had got up and left she wouldn't even notice.

    Have often dined at Blue Canyon and find the food is consistent and there is always a game dish on the menu. Typically there is a crowd in both the restaurant and bar. This Friday might we had 7:45 reservations and found both bar and restaurant to have a very small crowd. The food was good particularly the blue fin special. Another real plus is the encouragement of bringing your own wine.

    We usually have a great time / meal at this blue canyon location, however it seems that this time around things were stagnant. The sides felt like they were prepped before and just scooped out of a warmer. The fish was so so, the boar special was great, and the steaks were over done. Service was solid as always.
