    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.

We would recommend this restaurant for anyone that has a gluten free diet. Awesome wild game selection as well. We both had the elk and it was cooked perfectly.

    Our dinner club meets monthly at different venues around the Akron and Cleveland area. Because we try not to repeat any of the restaurants, we have had a number of dining experiences. During our evening at Blue Canyon, everyone in our group of eight loved his/her meal. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and the service was outstanding. The server was attentive without being intrusive. This is one of the few restaurants that we will be visiting again soon.

    We throughly enjoyed our evening. We ordered 2 BC signature dishes - mushroom and asparagas flatbread appetizer and the prestzle crusted trout. The half size order of the trout was a generous portion. The mini s'more dessertis a perfect size. The food from appetizer to dessert was delicious - high quality, well- seasoned and attractively presented. The view through the catherdral windows is beautiful. The atmoshphere iat BC is a comfortable blend of friendly, busy and gracious dining.

    Great flavors, cooked well. The shrimp-bacon-garlic flatbread was excellent. Had a rib eye steak cooked perfectly, and the salmon special that was excellent. The computer system was not complete, and we were led to a table with people already there, and we had to walk back to the entrance. Facing the windows, I was unable to see anything because of the brightness. If I had been at an angle to the windows there would have been little problem. The Wait staff had too many tables to take care of and were hurried. Did not want to hear any excuses. The table had not been set completely, and had to wait for an appetizer plate, and for the table to be cleared. For this class of restaurant, these little things should be attended to.

    As always our meal was perfect! One of the top restaurants in the area. We actually live an hour away and it is always worth the trip. Mary was our server and she was rude. We waited 25 minutes for our check after our meal and had to send someone to get Mary to bring it to us. Once she took our order we never saw her again until we asked for our check. Our drinks were never refilled. This is the second time we got Mary as a server and did not like her rudness either time. It will be a long time before we come back and we will ask for a different server.

    We visit this area once a year. Last year when we ate at the BC everything was great. This year was quite the opposite. If the waitress had ever come back to ask how our meals were, I would have told her that my lobster linguine was terrible. The lobster was bland and tough and the linguine were clumped together. Other meals in our party were OK, but nothing to get excited about. Combining that with the poor service made for an overall disappointing experience. Not surprisingly, they also failed to credit us our points for this OpenTable reservation.

    Have been looking forward to going to Blue Canyon. It is a beautiful venue, we had a seat near a window. Our server was very nice, attentive. Other than that, the food was just average, actually not as good as other restaurants costing less money. That is the overall sense that I got, that we just paid a huge amount for barely average food. I would not recommend. Don't know about the bar and patio.

    We went to the Blue Canyon in a group of 8 before a concert at the Rockcino. Service was good. He was a little frustrated by the fact that we moved around in the group a bit, but handled it very well. The bills were all right in the end. 2 of our 8 arrived 20 minutes later than the rest. He took their orders and managed to bring their food right behind the rest of us. None of the notes about the scenic view applied to our group. We sat in a dining room that was nothing special. Next time we will request the Great Room, which had several locations for a party our size. The Kitchen is also nice, and the patio outside looked beautiful.
