    The first time I ever went to Canvas I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Maria Pleasa, sat the evening sipping wine and eating amazing home made chocolates over fantastic conversation. The food for value has been amazing and the quality is top notch (service and food)

    The ambiance in the restaurant was wonderful! Original art work all over and a gallery in the basement. The best champagne by the glass of anywhere in Calgary!

    Dined on 9/13/2013
    We went for a lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon. The patio is nice, but once we were seated with our drinks in hand it became very apparent that lunch was not going to be served soon. The table beside us had been waiting for their food for an hour and eventually had to ask for lunch to be packed up to go as they needed to get back to work. Our lunch took about 45 minutes. I had the burger and it was pretty good, fries were tastey and my friend enjoyed her salad, but there was definitely something not happening in the kitchen. Don't think I will be back anytime soon.

    Price was on the high end I really don't get the high price of salads (there's nothing to it...) but the food was lovely made with quality ingredients. The service was not up to par ...Not great! just ok!

    New menu and chef. The food was a little slow for our large group but the kitchen sent a free appetizer out for our wait. Great food. Fantastic ambience. Somewhat limited menu but well worth giving it a try.

    Doesn't seem to be a very well known place yet since I was able to bring a fairly large group for dinner. Service was fantastic, the lady was attentive and showed a good knowledge of both the menu and wine list. The appetizer portions were huge! I didn't have room for dessert, but the coffee was excellent.

    2 of us tried out Canvas for the first time. The space is quite small but the decor is quite neat and modern. If it was a little warmer, the patio seating would have been fantastic for a light after work dinner. The burger was superb, and I would definitely go back for it. The calamari dish, while it was a very generous portion for being an appetizer, was way too spicy with all the jalapeno peppers in it. Without the heat, the dish would have been excellent, as the calamari was perfectly tender. I would definitely go back to try some of the other dishes, as the price point in this restaurant is very good.

    We went for brunch. Some unique and standards on the menu. What we ordered was delicious. We loved the artsy modern decor and the service was attentive. Only drawback was the room was rather cool and air con was blowing directly on us. We asked to have the air turned off but we were told the thermostat was broken. We did try it and yes it seemed to be that way! Bring a sweater and order a warm drink.

    The food is fantastic - sampled it at an event we attended which is why we decided to go to Canvas. The service was spotty - pinch-hitting servers really doesn't work. There was no lettuce the day we were there, so no salads available. We weren't asked if we wanted coffee or dessert - we didn't, but that's beside the point. If they improve their service, we will go back 'cause the food really is wonderful!

    I love the modern cafe feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Was there for lunch, but there were options for breakfast and dinner as well. The burger was amazing and the vegetable soup was delicious. The homemade ketchup saved the cold fries. Service was very friendly.

    Excellent food and reasonable prices for the quality. A small venue. The place was refreshingly quiet - I suspect that it hasn't quite caught on yet with Calgarians. I would suggest going there before it becomes so popular you can't get a seat.

    Came with a large group of ladies (10) and found the service and atmosphere excellent. Its a beautiful hole in the wall that will have a stellar outdoor area when the season permits. Service was great, food was yummy (although the greens could use some work, but who cares when there is duck confit on black lentils). Overall great new addition to the area.

    The food we ordered was good. However, the menu is limited to start with and they were out of 2 items (quiche, mac & cheese), which wasn't the greatest start to our meal. They were also out of cranberry juice. It seemed odd to be out of all of those things as we were having an early lunch (11:30). How exactly is a restaurant out of those things before the lunch rush even begins?? The restaurant has a lot of potential, but they need to work a few things out.

    When seated the server began to list the items that were not available on the menu. When finished I realized they only had two items available. This was very disappointing considering it was Saturday at 1:00 PM. After listening to various excuses and having to ask for a wine list I decided to leave. I will not be re-visiting this establishment ever.

    A bit 'Emperor's New Clothes' really. Booked in advance as given the impression it would be busy but when we arrived we were the first people there. The entrance was a bit hidden around the corner and no one greeted us. Had to walk into the restaurant where the waiter/host stood by the bar. He asked us if we had a reservation and then seated two of us at a table for four, granted there was only one table for two in the small space. Ordered a share platter each as starter. The waiter made no mention of the fact that I'd put down one diner as gluten free when I'd made the booking. Water was put on the table without asking, which was nice, but topped up so frequently it was disruptive to our dinner conversation.

    Enjoyed lunch at Canvas this week on a sunny Thursday. It's a small little dining spot which looks great. Glad to see 11th Avenue getting some more great places. Service was a little disorganized and there was some confusion over our order, but nothing worth stressing over. Beef Panini was delicious and a perfect lunch. The fries were delicious too. I would Definitely recommend Canvas to others.

    Food was tasty but the portions were very small, still hungry after sharing 3 small plates and 1 entree each between 2 people For example the steak comes with 3 onion rings, no other sides
