Service was slow.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTodd was great, butter itTodd was great, butter it squash ravioli was so flavorful. Bread pudding was more like French toast but in a delicious, creamy way. Others raved about the corn fritters-mine were dry but the syrup they came with was smoky and rich. Service was really slow, over an hour to get our main.9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for brunch-niceGreat place for brunch-nice selection of entrees, sweet and savoury. Only criticism was the coffee, did not like the flavour-tasted like instant and no refills. But other than that, a great place.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch Time GemI was there for lunch today, and it could not have been better. Service was friendly and the food was AMAZING.
Open face BLT (which is actually with arugla, but WHO CARES!).
No drip office here, only expresso, so you're getting an americano, deal with it. :-)
Server's are great at their job and know their product just as well as the average kitchen staff member.
The music wasn't over powering, and even with the place 1/2 full it was nice and quiet. Perfect for a business meeting or any couple looking to sneek in a mid day lunch date.
Canteen is a MUST.
I was here for dinner a couple weeks ago and it was just as GREAT.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMUterly worth the wait!It took a while to get a reservation but was definitely worth it. The food was out of this world! Pricy but worth very penny. If I could say anything negative it would be they need something to buffer the noise level like drapes perhaps sometimes difficult to hear. Highly recommend this restaurant!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service!Excellent food and service! Not so great for chatting as it's quite noisy. Would definitely suggest everyone goes!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodNot a large selection of dishes but everything that was had was delicious6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome MealAm a big fan of Red Ox and was only hoping the food and experience would be close, Canteen surpassed that. Excellent flavours, textures and presentation made for an amazing food experience. This is a must try in Edmonton.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional foodReally exceptional food quality, taste and presentation. Creative combination of flavours and textures. Service very pleasant. Only problem is the noise level. Would definitely eat here again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Little Place!Fantastic food with perfect portions. Noise level is loud, a bit difficult to hear each other or even tell the server your order! Great experience and definitely recommended :)6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food. Short ribReally good food. Short rib sandwich is a winner.
Server was professional yet boring. More enthusiasm required.
Noise level was really crazy and the restaurant was half full.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is small but there'sThe menu is small but there's something for everyone. They are able to perfect each dish and draw out all of the subtle flavours.
Presentation is great and the staff is friendly. This one is not to be missed!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Good Experience!This was our first time at Canteen. We found it to be very noisy, so noisy that we had a hard time hearing our waitress. The food was good, nice selection and well presented. Braised beef however was very chewy.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceOur party had various allergies and the staff went out of their way to be accommodating. Diner was beyond delicious. I would definitely recommend Canteen and can't wait to go back to try out their brunch6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightI used the flower booking as part of my on line booking and it was ready when we arrived. Nice touch. It was a but noisy and I would have liked a more private table - even though I did not ask for one – I assumed with the order of the flowers they would ry to accommodate.
Good food - good wine. A great night out - would highly recommend (and will) to friends.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new findAwesome new restaurant by the owner of the Red Ox Inn. Loved the chick pea fries and the corn fritters with "to die for" smoked maple syrup. The lamb was perfection. I have had the bread pudding at Red Ox which was memorable, but found this one a disappointment. Intriguing menu which makes me want to go back for more. Great modern decor but very, very noisy which made having a conversation challenging. Perhaps it was better if sitting along the side of the restaurant rather than in the middle as we were.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Nice modern decorGreat food. Nice modern decor but very loud because of hard surfaces.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for brunch!This place is a keeper! All 4 of us enjoyed our brunch. The food was very good and the service was great. The place is a bit noisy, but for brunch that was not an issue for us. Will definitely be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDid someone say Bone Marrow..I have been here three times for dinner and I can't get enough of
their bone marrow! Other than having to yell across the table, there
doesn't seem to be a fault with this restaurant. The excitement
that builds while awaiting your order and thrill of scoring weekend
reservations (at a reasonable time) is what keeps this place
energetic and lively! Lamb, good. Short rib, good. Pork Loin with
crispy pork belly, oh so good! Nothing can disappoint cause it's all
You may have to wait a little past your reservation time you can't
blame people for not wanting to leave.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food! We would eat hereGreat Food! We would eat here again, however, if your looking for lunch in 1 hour, this may not be for you.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ThursdayWe were early and we greeted as we were their friends, and made welcome at the bar. A wonderfully informed chat on wines and beers. A sample was offered and we settled into our refreshment. Engaging friendly staff spoke with us and demonstrated their pride in their food and the interest in patrons.
Te menu had a good cross section of food and choices. We stared with small thing of fritters and maple syrup and was amazing, followed by extraordinary stuffed figs wrapped in bacon.
We ha Ethernet beef and was judged as the best we have ever had. Overall 10 out of 10. Truly a candidate for "You Got To Eat Here"
Loved it and will be back again!!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!We love eating here and I was quite thrilled when I found out they serve at lunch! I had the buttermilk chicken and it was amazing.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA great way to celebrate a birthdayEvery year I seek out a new restaurant to share with a friend on her birthday. Our food was presented beautifully, the flavours were fresh and the service was attentive without being overwhelming. I definitely will come again.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat performanceWe again enjoyed our dinner at Canteen. Everything that we ordered was delicious and unique. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. We were very happy with the cost of the dinner. The prices are very reasonable.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and service.Amazing food and service. Only downside the the evening was the noise level in the restaurant was really high, it was difficult to maintain conversation at a regular speaking level.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Summer LunchFelt the menu was a tad limited. We arrived for a Saturday lunch/brunch. Noise level - bit loud - but we are old - so noise bothers us. We might be able to overcome that. Definite Brunch menu.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for BrunchCanteen has a very interesting brunch menu. Had the Citrus salmon and it was delicious. Good service.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodA couple girlfriends and I went to celebrate a birthday. Tried several different dishes...they were all good. Waitress recommended a couple and she was spot on. Everything else was great and there wasn't an empty table. Waitress was knowledgeable about wine list. Wine was a little limited. Lively noise level but didn't stop us from visiting. We are 50 but not over the hill...the atmosphere was perfect. Lots of younger (and few older) but was not so trendy we felt out of place. Definitely going back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and DrinksWent to Canteen for our wedding anniversay and wasn't disappointed. Food and drinks were great. Will be back to try some more of the menu. Come here if you want a relaxed atmosphere, but a high end dining experience. Not overly big place, so make reservations.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. However,Great food and service. However, very noisy so hard to carry on a conversation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, butThe food was excellent, but it was too noisy. The floors and walls are all hard surfaces, so there's nothing to dampen the sound. I like a bustling ambience, but I had difficulty hearing my friend from across the table.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great VibeOverall great experience, the noise level was a bit high, should have some sort of natural sound absorption products .5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the food was great!Overall the food was great! Four different entrees and all were delicious.
Only downside was the AC was down and the restaurant was like an oven!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are group of up to 10We are group of up to 10 ladies who meet for lunch once a month. After meeting for 3 years at a local country club we chose to pick a new place every month. Canteen happen to be our first choice. As some of did brave the terrible weather we differently thought it was worth it.All of enjoyed our meal. Chelsea was a very informative waitess and was a excellent representative for the restaurant . Over all the service was excellent.
The only negative thing I can say is the noise was extremely loud. We could barely here ourselves. Because of the size of our party we were put in the back. That was not good for sound.overall the ladies enjoyed our experience and food. I will highly recommend it to our friends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mix of ingredients.Great mix of ingredients. Bursts of flavours with each bite. Great service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCorn fritters a must!We had a great dinner for a retirement celebration. Appetizers were great - really loved the smoky corn fritters. Crunchy and delicious and not at all oily or greasy. Duck entree was out of this world. Dessert was disappointing. Bread pudding was dry and tasteless. It needed some whipped cream or ice cream. Would definitely go back! Pricey, but worth it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMShort ribs (lunch menu) deliciousWorth going back for over and over for lunch. Servers are friendly, not bubbly, though.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious, andThe food was delicious, and the service was friendly and professional.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGem on 124 Street.My third visit to the Canteen and my third different menu selection. The food has been consistently excellent. The plating is outstanding. the service is attentive but not overbearing. A little on the pricey side for lunch, but well worth the cost for a special group lunch outing.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time overallI went there with a larger group of work girlfriends. We had a really nice time, the food was very good and the atmosphere was fun. The space is small but used fairly well. Will be going back soon, I'm sure.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I went for lunchMy friend and I went for lunch one Saturday afternoon. Apparently lunch is not served on weekends so we ordered from the brunch menu. The food was great, service fantastic and the atmosphere was nice. I was just confused by the specific menus and when they were served. It's a good idea to check out the menu "times" if you are looking for something specific. I would go again and check out the other menus.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
