    This location has been newly renovated and looks fabulous. The entrance is so welcoming set with a wooden desk and a book shelf behind that is full of old, antique and vintage cameras. Picture perfect. Food is amazing and presented with such care. Beer list is exceptional. Service was fantastic. We look forward to returning.

    The Southwest chicken was DELICIOUS! The Thai salad was great as well. We were not too thrilled with our rice crusted chicken appetizer...was very bland, served only 4-5 pieces, and cost over $11! All in allwould return to this restaurant but would avoid pricey apps!

    based on a recommendation for the restaurant I decided to take my wife there for our anniversary. I must say the food was excellent. Although it's been told that the sweet bun portioning has been reduced to a morsel, my main course of the Chipotle sirloin was absolutely delicious. Our canyon creek dip was flavorful with a large portion, it was perfect. Recommendation is though to have the menu identify Ontario VQA to help promote local wines. Luckily our server was educated (as was I) and we were able to make a good choice.

    My husband and I and another couple had dinner here on Thanksgiving Monday. We each had something different but dinner was enjoyed by all. Prime rib and steak was cooked perfectly. The salmon received rave reviews and my pickerel was excellent. Vegetables were crisp and service excellent. A very enjoyable dining experience. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

    My husband had the Prime Rib - very good and perfectly cooked. Great veggies too. I had the Steak and Lobster Mash. The steak was very good, and perfectly cooked. Also nice veggies. The Mash was delicious, but the amount of lobster pieces on the Mash was on the small side considering the price of the entre ($30 with a 7 oz sirloin). The service was very good, and the newly rennovated surrounds very nice.

    We have been long time Canyon Creek customers. We recently went to Canyon Creed for my spouse's birthday. Our overall experience was disappointing. Th service was fair...empty glasses left on the table the entire night. The menu has changed and a bread basket (with honey butter) is no longer provided. Instead a very small piece of pan fried bread is provided, if you can get the attention of the person with the bread. The steaks were okay but nothing spectacular Although the waiter spent time explaining how the restaurant had been renovated, it seems more attention is required on the service and food We won't be back soon

    Do not like the onion bites in skillet idea, there was a half hour wait before i finally asked where the bread was, and then told the kid with the skillet will come around. When he finally came he gave ONE bite each and there were 4 of us.I asked for more and he said he would come back but he never did. Your prices are comparable to The Keg, and not only do they give you bread right away, they ask if you want more. I felt like I had to beg to get a bite of bread Was very disappointed. My steak did not come with the Mushroom Trufelleta sauce. I had to ask for it. One guest steak sent back as was well done and the order was medium rare Do not like the renovations. What happened to a classier fine dining? .

    Food quality, service quality and ambience have all deteriorated badly.

Recent renovation and revamp of the location has n not been well executed. Not likely to dire here in future.

    Went to the newly renovated Canyon Creek...and was very dissapointed. The new look to the decor is very well done. Warm colours and a modern feel make the interior cozy and relaxed. Here's where our evening fell flat... We were given a small intimate table, right in the way of a traffic zone for the waiters, busboys and other guests to walk past. It was like sitting along the 403 on rush hour. Too many people stopped right in front of our table to let others by. We were given bread before our meal...but YUCK!!! They changed the bread to a honey bread. It was like eating donuts before supper. Tasted too sweet with our beer. My chicken was burnt, steak was blah. Ponderosa was better back in the day...and half the price.

    On this occasion the restaurant was very busy, and when one entree that was ordered medium-well arrived very "medium" verging on "rare", we had to comment. The busboy was closest and he alerted our waitress. Instead, the manager arrived, agreed with our concern and offered to reheat or provide a new entree. We chose reheat, and they gave us a new entree. As if that wasn't sufficient, the manager then included a desert, and, when the bill arrived, the price of the entree was removed as well. Excellent service! The attention to customer satisfaction went well beyond the call of duty, kudos to the manager, waitress and busboy!!! We will definitely return, and we highly recommend the Fairview Burlington CC for a great dining experience.

I always try to eat what a restaurant is known for and in this case for Canyon Creek, that would be Steak or Prime Rib, but I ate one of the pastas instead - so glad I tried it - worth going off the tracks!

    We have never been disappointed when visiting this Canyon Creek location and thoroughly enjoyed dining there on the weekend. The meals were excellent - the melt-in-your-mouth-delicious prime rib and nicely spiced Chipotle Sirloin Steak were done to perfection. Of the accompanying vegetables we found the beans to be tender crisp but the carrots somewhat underdone. The warm bread with honey-infused butter was a lovely opener. Service was amazing, well timed and never intrusive. Our server was very friendly and his sense of humour added a lot of fun to our evening. We would highly recommend this restaurant for either casual dining or a special occasion.

    Overall it was ok 1.Food was good, good steak, soup, salad and the birthday brownie. but service felt rushed - we were out for a pleasant - event - not to eat and rush out. 1 hour and $140 later done. Felt like we were at a fast food restaurant. what happened to the knife with the bread, cutlery seemed to be an issue (although it may have just been our server). the server kept saying no rush - two minutes later - back again. We did not get asked if we wanted any desert or coffee. Brought daughter's brownies, and BANG ! there is the bill.

    We are regulars at Canyon Creek usually at Sherway Gardens. This time in Burlington we sat on the patio. We really don't need menus because we knew what we were going to order. The coffee crusted stake was so peppery my daughter could not eat it, they brought her another one after 1/2 hour that was way over done. It could have been sitting in the kitchen for that length because it does not take long for medium rare. The waitress tried to tell us it looks different outside, what? Then the manager came out telling us the same thing by this time it was 8:20 and she was so hungry she ate the well done stake. Very inconsistent at the Burlington location. We have always had the perfect steak at Sherway location.

    My friend & I meet every 6 weeks to catch up on our lives, and we specifically pick Canyon Creek for the prime rib dinner. We find that the 8 oz. medium cooked is perfect for us. For those of us that don't like to see blood, it is still very tender and pink inside. The loaded baked potato complements the meat beautifully. Our waitress was very attentive and recommended an excellent California Pinot Grigio.
