    The description of the steak and lobster mash was deceiving - there were about 6 little marbles of lobster on a pound of mashed potatoes, so that was disappointing. Service was OK, but perhaps your servers can look BOTH patrons in the eye - Heather seemed uncomfortable dealing with my wife. No rush, as noted on my reservations it was our anniversary, so bringing us the bill before we asked for it was a little presumptive.

    My family dined at Canyon Creek Burlington on Friday, November 21/14. We were celebrating my son's birthday and his graduation from university with his Masters degree. Our reservation was ready when we arrived, though we were placed in a booth which was somewhat drafty. When I asked if we could switch we were immediately given another booth with no questions asked. Our server Jack was spactacular. So knowledgeable, accomodating and attentive. The food was delicious, cooked exactly as we had ordered. After dinner Jack brought two complimentary desserts to our table to celebrate both my son's birthday and his graduation. My son was so impressed with the entire evening that he made a point to let the manager know about our experience. We have always had great experiences at Canyon Creek and will definitely return to the Burlington location for our next celebration!

    Unfortunately, my husband and I both ordered the Prime Rib. I have had it at Canyon before and it was very good. This time it was like trying to saw through a hunk of leather. We returned it and they did give us another Prime rib meal. It was ok, but certainly not anything to rave about. I also had the avacado and blue cheese starter. In my opinion the avacado was too ripe and the bacon bits were so crunchy that it felt like I was going to break a tooth. The salad dressing was really delicious and the presentation was lovely.

    We were greeted nicely and seated right away. We ordered the Prime Rib sandwich. It was tasty but way too fatty. We had to cut the fat out which isn't pretty with a sandwich. The server was pleasant but a bit too attentive, we felt rushed. She kept saying to take our time but she kept coming back in minutes. Overall, it is a nice restaurant and we would return.

    We visit this restaurant several times a year. This time, I was disappointed. First, the music seemed much louder than before. We were seated, immediately, but waited over 10 minutes before even seeing a server. The hamburgers were smaller than before and overcooked, mine to the point of being charred. They will get one more chance.

    Three out of the four of us at our table had steak; each was cooked to perfection. I had the shrimp ravioli, and this was the second time I have had this dish and it was so good! Service to get our drinks and refills was slow, but the food came out in great time. We did dine on a Saturday night, but it wasn't as busy as previous times dining on a Saturday evening. This was nice as the restaurant wasn't as noisy! We will definitely be returning to Canyon Creek Burlington for another yummy meal.

    We went to Canyon Creek for our 4 year anniversary. We have never been here before so we didn't know what to expect. We made a reservation and were seated right away. The manager that brought us to our table was very nice. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. Our waitress was very nice, and didn't forget about us. The food was amazing. Overall a great night . We will be going back for sure.

    My husband and I are loyal patrons to this restaurant, we've been coming here for over 10 years. We have always recommended Canyon Creek as our fave restaurant, but we're officially done. You took away our favourite pecan pie a year ago, which we loved and used to sometimes pick up on our way home from work, and now you've messed with our favourite Caesar dressing on the market, and you've changed our favourite bread/honey butter again. We are officially seeking our new favourite, after over 10 years of loyalty.

    I booked our table from there website. I asked specifically what area I wanted the table in. I got there with my special date and I got friendly staff and the best waiter I've ever expected. He was on top of everything but not pushy. He somehow made our night go even better than I nervously thought it was going to be. He was fun, respectful and polite. He knew when to come around and knew when we were in need of service. I wish I got his name. He stayed on his duty until we were completely done. We were his last customers to leave and he never rushed us. My date Carol and I, Leo enjoyed our night because of the overall service from every staff member that attended us from start to finish. Thank you Canyon Creek for this experience. Your food is one of a kind as well as your staff. We will be returning because of your quality of dining experience!

    We have been dining at Canyon Creek for years, and always enjoyed it, but probably won't go back again. I made a reservation to take friends there for dinner 6 days before going, and requested a booth (I'm 8+ mos pregnant, and it's hard to get comfortable in a small chair!) We arrived ~5 minutes late due to traffic, and were told that there were no booths. Our server was OK, although notably more friendly at the END of our meal (aka time to tip!) which was unappealing. A beer took 20 min to get to the table, bread took 30 (and we were never offered more), and portions were smaller than they used to be (none of us were actually full and we all cleaned our plates!). I could go on, but for nearly $200, we left unsatisfied with the experience.

    Have been going here for years in all its variations. Good place for a meal with friends. appetizers very good. coffee used to be terrible but is now Starbucks but that is not that great as we don't care for the burned taste of Starbucks. Used to have great blender drinks esp the Bellini but now gone sadly. Service generally very good. Menu recently abbreviated to focus on beef steaks and roasts. A couple of non beef options but less than before.

The lighting is cheap looking and I hit my head on the over the table light when getting up to go to the ladies room. Very disappointing decor. Hope you didn't pay allot for it!!!!

    Mid-Saturday decided to try Canyon Creek for dinner that night. Loved that I could make reservations online easily and add any comments/requests. On arrival, noticed several patrons waiting but, not us! Acknowledged that I requested a booth and took us straight to our cozy table. Quick service. Good menu options but bear in mind most of the items are steak related. Really enjoyed the meal. Wished our waitress would have anticipated our sticky fingers and I wouldn't have had to ask then wait for another napkin or wetnap. We enjoyed the evening. Can't comment on the ambiance as our booth was located in a tight fitting area and could not see the interior other than 2 or 3 other tables up against a long wall. Nice to try somewhere new.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Burlington location recently underwent change - some more apparent (open concept, loud music), and others more subtle (paper napkins replace cloth, whole grain bread replaced with unremarkable white 'honey' buns). Food was largely unchanged, but not well executed in all cases (some items arrived luke warm, an other was missed altogether). Pedestrian wine list. Saving grace was well-prepared mains (steak) and a Manager who took our concerns seriously and did his best to make it better.

    Fantastic food, fantastic service, priced reasonably, I recommend this place to all types of guests; young families, young couples, mature couples, retirees, group outings- honestly anyone would love it here. I had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and a side Caesar, while my boyfriend inhaled his coffee coated steak, which he swears order again. We had the calamari starter that was as good as it was on my trip to the Adriatic in Croatia- fresh out of the sea. Good job Canyon Creek and my highest compliments to the chef, I'll be returning frequently!

All our meals were excellent, some had the brown butter pickerel, cooked to perfection (no bones) and the Prime Rib was perfect. Service was very attentive. Enjoyed their new bread. Looking forward to going again soon.

    We went to canyon creek for our anniversary dinner on Saturday. We hadn't been for a while and saw that my local franchise had a promotion. My finance ordered the steak and lobster mash, and when it was served the portion size was disappointing. Now I'm not a lobster person but from what he said, the lobster was funny tasting and weird texture. I ordered the pickerel and the presentation was lacking and the taste was even more disappointing. It tasted like the fish was just brushed with Dijon mustard. Now, we brought this to the attention of our waiter and manangement came by and offered to make us something else or give us complimentary dessert which was nice.

    Not my best canyon creek experience. Was a little disappointed with the seating. Was placed at the first table right next to the door. Asked for a booth was told they were reserved. Will have to remember to request that for next time. The server was actually very good and attentive to us. I ordered the strip loin with loaded baked potato which the potato was just barely warm and the steak was decent but not great. My wife had a steak salad which she said was excellent. We had a dip for an appetizer which again was okay but not excellent. Found the decor was just okay. It was quite busy. It was quite noisy as well. I would expect better food for the price.

    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.
