    Took wife and kids there for our anniversary brunch, really happy we went. The combination of a brunch buffet and being able to order from the kitchen was just right, the spread including salmon, shrimp, and prime rib were excellent. Wish they had the oysters but perhaps another time. Would absolutely recommend this place for special events and fine dining.

    I usually give this place 5 stars, but on Saturday there was a wedding going on and it was very loud. I also sat on the Porch for the first time and the table next to us was a very large, loud group. I would request the main room next time I go back. Food and service were both excellent.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
