    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.

  • Good Overpriced Food
    MatureDiner
    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 always enjoy brunch at Blue Canyon and for the first time, we tried the Clam Bake. The food was excellent. The clam chowder was very flavorful and the side dishes were wonderful. Dessert was lame, but we were really too full to care. We will return!

    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.

    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.
