    The brunch was buffet style, and had ample and varied selections. Some of the food was on the cool side, having been out for awhile, but everything was tasty and nicely presented. The wait staff was very kind. I have only ever been to Blue Canyon for supper before, but would certainly consider going back for brunch in the future.

    Food at Blue Canyon is always very good. Wine list is extensive and they make a great martini. Service is just OK - not what you would expect from a "fancy restaurant." The only truly negative comment I have for the evening I was there is that there was a table of about 15 near our table for two that had 4-5 kids who were 3 or younger who were very loud during our entire meal, screaming and carrying on the whole time. Not really a fault of the restaurant itself, but it did impact our dining experience so I thought I would write about it.

    We stopped in early on our way to a high school football playoff game in Twinsburg. It was a cold, snowy night and we needed to warm up before a cold night in the bleachers. We started with cocktails and the "two-for dinner" special. The salad and trout entree were outstanding and we even took time to enjoy desert before venturing out into the cold. Service was outstanding and the "north-woods lodge atmosphere really complemented the meal.

    Blue Canyon is elegant dining with an unpretentious feel. Every dish is prepared with attention to visual detail and levels of flavor. The lobster bisque was delicious and satisfying. The crusted trout was delicious and the spinach was slightly wilted without being soggy. The portions were generous which is frequently rare is great food. I felt that I had a healthy, balanced meal. My creme brûlée was silky and delicious though I was envious of my friends chocolate bomb! I love the atmosphere of Blue Canyon. There was a full restaurant but I never noticed the noise level. And thank you for not having blaring music. It would only cause patrons to talk over the music. I drove 39 minutes to get to BC and would do it again.

    My husband ordered the trout & absolutely loved it. I ordered the steak & was not so lucky. I asked for it medium and it arrived very well done. I should have sent it back and asked for a new entree, but didn't want my husband's dinner to get cold while we waited for my replacement. I expected a dining establishment of this caliber to be able to cook a steak as ordered, but was disappointed with the results. The atmosphere is truly exceptional though, you really feel like you're in a Montanta lodge instead of a restaurant in a suburb between Cleveland & Akron.

    This is of our favorite restaurants in NE Ohio! We always look forward to what the "game" feature is on the menu, we've tried several - namely duck, wild boar and elk. All have been excellent. Their cast iron skillet chicken is great. Their seafood gas Ben very good as well. Great ambiance and treat service, too!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    The food and service were very good, but we felt as if we were eating in a totally fake and cheesy Great Wolf Lodge water park. There was nothing authentically western about the decor, nor did it feel as if we were in a national park lodge. When you go to Great Wolf Lodge you know to appreciate the fakeness and there is a certain level of irony. All of that irony was gone here and the restaurant took itself seriously as if we were really supposed to buy into the idea we were out west. We won't be returning.

    Seated in the "greenhouse", which was cold. Ordered an appetizer and never received it, our salads where brought out so I didn't need the appetizer anymore. My husband ask to switch the greenbeans for asparagus and he received the root veggies instead. The food runner went back immediately and brought him the asparagus. I requested the root veggies in place of the greenbeans , but the only thing I could chew were the carrots and brussel sprouts, the rest were tough to eat. When the server checked back, he offered to get me something else, but I was halfway done with my salmon.

    Traveled an hour to try Blue Canyon. Was not disappointed. The atmosphere was rustic yet elegant. There were four of us at dinner and 3 of us would order the same entree again, that is the reason for the four star rating instead of five. Looking forward to visiting Blue Canyon again.

    Blue Canyon has always been a very special destination for us. This evening disappointed. Service was enthusiastic, but often very slow. Soup was unseasoned, drinks were poorly made and while my husband's potatoes were cold, mine were too hot to enjoy. Little things, but they add up especially when you expect four star dining. .

    The menu selection has good variety though the preparation is much too salty. Service staff was very friendly though not as sharp as you would expect given the overall price point. Blue Canyon evening clientele varies considerably as does the dress code - which there apparently is none. We enjoyed the restaurant but for the upscale price (~$100/person with entrees and wine) we suggest trying other NE Ohio restaurants for a touch more class and bit less salt.

Wish they had the oysters but perhaps another time. Would absolutely recommend this place for special events and fine dining.

    We made reservations last minute and were able to get a table for two on a Friday night. The restaurant was beautiful, it reminded us of an upscale lodge. All of the staff was very friendly and professional. Our server Mike was very knowledgeable and helpful. The menu had a lot of great options and I ordered butternut squash ravioli with a pumpkin sauce and my boyfriend ordered lobster linguine. We thought the food was excellent. We also ordered a dessert to-go which was very good. I would recommend Blue Canyon. We plan on eating there agin soon!

    We went to Blue Canyon for my parents anniversary and our anniversary. We got there and were seated right away per our reservation. That is where the service went south. It took the waitress about 10 minutes to come to our table for drink orders. When she finally came, it was another 15 minutes before the drinks arrived. The service was poor to say the least. Our entrees came and our salad plates and soup bowls were still on our table. We had to pick the. Up and hand to the servers before they could put our entrees down. It seems she had too many tables to service in a timely fashion.

    This place is worth the drive just for the atmosphere and the view. It makes you forget you are right off of the highways of northeast Ohio. The food and drinks are delicious! Small plates are just that, small. Be aware. Also, when ordering any special, be sure to know the portion size of the meat. Some of the wild game may be a smaller cut than you may be used to. If you prefer your meat on the well done side, they will do it, but ONLY if you are specific. There are plenty of vegetarian options and gluten free choices also. This is one of my favorite places to have a couples night out or to meet with a group of friends, but when I brought my children, they enjoyed it too. Try it...you'll like it.

    Our evening did not start out very well when our reservation for 8 people including two young children at 6:00 PM turned into a 45 minute wait. The hostesses never did seem to have a good handle on when they would get us a table. Our server did a nice job of taking over and all in all, once seated and attended to, out food and service was very good.

    Service was not good. Several servers delivered our clambake pot to the table; not one noticed we had no plates. Could not get anyone's attention & had to cross the room to the serving area to get anyone's attention. Still had to wait; no sign of our waitress. Did not get melted butter with our bakes. When our waitress finally returned and we mentioned no plates & no butter, she became very defensive and said "we got slammed (busy) today" and offered a weak apology; tone was "it's not my fault". Also, potatoes were served with a teaspoon; coffee was served with an ice tea spoon. In fairness, she did not charge us for our coffee. First time in a long time we debated not leaving a tip; she did get less than we would normally give.

    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.

    We had been wanting to try out Blue Canyon for awhile now, and for the price was expecting to be impressed however that was not the case. The service was fine and the food just mediocre. What was most disappionting was the serving size....tiny! For thd price I would expect a bit more especially since it doesnt even come with bread or salad as most comparable places do. I order butternut squash raviolo and only got 5 pieces of pasta! Come on this is pasta not meat I expected a little more! I never finish a meal at most resturants because the serving size is more than enough however I left Blue Canyon still starving!
