  • "We were there before a raptor game and it was very busy. Being busy as it was the service was really good. The ambience was perfect. My peppercorn steak was perfect. The sides that came with it could have been at bit more but was delish."

  • "It was my first time to downtown TO in 3 years, remembered it as a good restaurant and it delivered! Was able to chat with friend without trying to talk over overly-loud music, server (beautiful Irish lilt!) was patient, attentive and a pleasure to chat with. Great, great service, delicious food. I look forward to my next downtown date at Canyon Creek Front St.!"

  • "Booked a table for 10 and arrived with a couple extra people- they were very accommodating. We were there on a Thursday night which was wine night. $25 bottles! The staff was extremely friendly and the food was amazing. I had the prime rib and the lobster guacamole which was delicious to say the least! It is not ever priced but not underpriced either-- great value and the atmosphere is that of a fancy cabin in the woods . Would definitely go back again and might make a regular thing out of it!"

  • "Waiter was very polite, but food service was sporadic due to a larger party being served. Received our mains just as we had started our appetizers."

  • "If you only have a hour for lunch, this is not the place to go. I regularly attended this restaurant, but had stopped going over a year ago due to the slow service and food quality. I recently met a few friends for lunch and the service and food issues have not changed. We waited 15 minutes to order and a further 45 minutes for the food to arrive. When it did arrive, it was cold. The manager did provide a 25% discount on the bill, saying that the kitchen was busy, it wasn't busy as several tables around us were empty. We ended up eating our lunch in a hurry and waiting a further 10 mintes for the cheque. The server was also snarky when asked re the delay as we noted a number of tables being served before us despite arriving after us."

  • "Had the golden calamari and coconut shrimp appetizers -- Fantastic. My companion has the prime rib sliders -- was in orgasms. The Caesar salad was real - anchovies and garlic. The garlic shrimp ravioli was great - very tasty - could even taste the filling. Would definitely go back. Wine was reasonable and good. The gin martini and Golden Cadillac was everything we could ask for a special occasion."

  • "We were in Toronto for medical reasons and we are always looking to try different restaurants. We were told that this one topped The Keg, I will concur!! My husband had the 16oz prime rib and I had the salmon ... both cooked to perfection. Would I go again if in the Toronto area ................... YES !!"

  • "I've been to Canyon Creek's numerous locations before -- and a number of other places too. I spend a lot of time traveling for business. I made the reservations this time using Open Table because I was literally on the Blackberry chatting with people when the idea occurred to me -- it was just easier. Hence why this is my first review. Canyon Creek is a chain of upper end restaurants modeled as a "chop house" and is priced accordingly. Their food is very good -- this evening I had the Chipotle Sirloin with their Mash and started with a Caesar. Quality is consistently good -- you will enjoy your meal at each location. Their Steak and Lobster Mash is also a favourite.The service is usually good here but this evening was outstanding."

  • "I had gone with 5 other people to catch up, 5 of us had ordered the meatloaf and the other the steak frites. I have never gone to a resturant where I would order meatloaf of all things, the description to this entree its appealing, appitizing and amazingly delicious. The brownie has almonds and pecans which is a great change from walnuts, its moist and chocolately and leaves you happy."

  • "The atmosphere was subdued and relatively quiet so we could converse without having to shout over background music. Three diners had the roast beef which was nicely prepared and tasty as expected and. My Wife enjoyed her seafood dish and the Canyon Creek Dip starter set up the meal nicely without making us feel full before the entrees arrived. We have dined at this restaurant before and everything was up to our expectations. I did notice the menu has been expanded since my last visit a couple of years ago. I enjoyed having more choices from the more comprehensive menu selection."

  • "I love this place. The one thing I would change is the lighting. Extremely dark in there when you come in from a sunny day your blinded. Also it's in the basement and there is a hint of mustiness. But still worth a trip."

  • "Needed to make last minute dinner reservations and after narrowing down our selections chose Canyon Creek not only for their menu but we were able to make online reservations and got instant confirmation. Another restaurant on Front street needed 48 hrs to make and confirm online reservations and when we called there was no answer. So it made our choice simple and we were not disappointed!"

  • "Unfortunately we were not very impressed, after hearing good things and looking forward to our evening. Our server was not too helpful, a little sarcastic and not too interested in ensuring we had a nice evening. We were disappointed that our requests were not provided for, like no onions on burger and other requests and questions on dishes were brushed off. The menu is interesting and the dining room has a nice ambience, meals were well presented. Unfortunately, the rice was watery and tasteless, salmon was small portion but nicely cooked and came with 2 asparagus spears. The burger and pasta dishes were average. Our glasses of wine were served after meals were half completed. The water requested was not served. Possibly an off night?"

  • "We go to Canyon Creek whenever possible, because everything is always 5 Star. the food was fantastic, the waiter was on his game all night. We have just come to expect the same level of service, because it hits the mark consistently every time. Well Done!"

  • "The meal was tasty, but lacking in options. I ordered chicken and it came only with mash potatoes. It would have been great to get a few other options with this, such as a choice of vegetables or salad. The wine was a little pricy per glass and bottle. Otherwise the food was good. The dessert was limited in choices, although we enjoyed the coconut cream dish. Overall the meal was quite pricy for what you received."

Our server was a delightful person, a nice Irish woman named Donna...she was friendly and efficient. The food was tasty (we had their top burger combo), the beer was frosty...we had a great time there and would recommend it to others."

They were there to serve our every need. We had a relaxing dinner with time between courses to laugh and chat. No one rushed us through our meal to reuse the table. It was a terriffic evening for all. I highly recommend a visit to this place."

  • "Have dined at many CCs and always found food to be excellent, until here on Sat 1st Mar. Had to send my steak back. It didn't look like a New York sirloin and was extremely rare; I ordered medium rare. Was replaced without hesitation and manager told us we would receive complimentary dessert in compensation. Next steak was correctly medium-rare but neither looked like nor tasted like a New York sirloin. Didn't have time to try again! My wife's Steak & Shrimp Criolla had good flavour, but steak (butterflied unexpectedly) was mediocre. Were billed for the "free"dessert - didn't have time to challenge. Location is great, service was fine & we've thoroughly enjoyed eating here in the past. Hoping that we just caught them on an off night."

  • "Overall, it was a good lunch, but all 5 of us ordered the canyon burger and was served burnt. There was black charcoal all around where I had to remove it to make it edible. None of us complained as we don't make a habit to send food back to the kitchen in case we insult the chef and it might come back worse. Besides, we didn't have time to wait as we had to get back to work. The server was really friendly which made the experience bearable."

  • "A friend and I went to Canyon Creek while she was visiting Toronto - the food was amazing! And now the only disappointment (for her) is that they don't have one in Ottawa! The fresh bread and honey butter was delicious, I'm going to have to try to make honey butter on my own! We started with the Asian Nachos - SO amazing and super unique... I would never have thought to combine the ingredients together but it was delicious and so flavourful. I had the thai chicken salad, also AMAZING... the peanut sauce was so good and the mango and avocado added a nice touch. My friend had the chipotle steak and loved it, not too much heat but a lot of flavour! Canyon Creek is my favourite and ranks WAY above the Keg in my books."

  • "We've dined here a few times because of the location - good for a dinner before a concert or event at the ACC, while staying at nearby hotels. Previous times have been on weeknights but this was a Saturday, and things were slower. The food was very good - ceasar salad was great with a good "kick" and the peppercorn steak sauce was good...but...our steak was overdone (asked for medium and there was really no pink in the middle) and thus was a little tougher than I expected for a sirloin. However, it was still tasty and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again."
