    My friend and I were looking for a decent steakhouse but couldn't find one that said it would be under $40. Then, by chance, we came across this place and it was AMAZING. The staff was super friendly, the steak was delicious ("coffee-crusted steak").

    We went here for dinner. We were seated in a cozy booth and had a waiter come over promptly. He was extremely friendly and knowledgible about the menu. He brought us some complimentary bread with the most AMAZING whipped honey butter. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked to perfection. Everything was delicious. I had put special instructions on the reservation that it was my boyfriends birthday and to do something special. We were treated to a brownie and icecream on the house. We had a very positive experience and will definitely be back!

    We went to Canyon Creek to celebrate our Anniversary, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The food was incredible, we have a delicious avocado salad and the steak soup as appetizers, we both had the steak and lobster mash (you HAVE TO try this dish, is beyond this world), and also two lava cakes with ice cream for dessert, that came with fired up sparkles to make the anniversary shine even more. As good as the food was, we were extremely delighted with Donna, she made our special occasion even more special, and THAT my friend, is priceless. We would definitely go back their with friends.

    We were heading to a Leaf game - which our server identified immediately, and therefore had limited time. We made our selections and our server Shawn was available to take our order. We decided to add a garden salad 5 minutes later and again he was around and said no problem! The drinks arrived and shortly after the salad - which was tasty. After about another 10 minutes the entrée's arrived and the steaks were dome to perfection. We enjoyed everything and paid and left for the game about 50 minutes after arriving. I would strongly recommend Canyon Creek to anyone wanting a great meal and service prior to an event at the ACC.

    Came down for the Leaf game and was looking forward to dinner at Canyon Creek. Reviews I read were quite good. We ordered an appetizer and dinner but received our dinner before the appetizer? The waitress apologized and brought the appetizer out and offered to take our dinner away until later? We ate both together. The waitress offered us a free dessert to make up for the error. I had the coffee crusted steak and my wife had the cedar plank salmon at a cost of $28 and $24 respectively. We were not impressed with either dinner. A very unfortunate experience overall.

    I never have a bad meal when I go to CC - in fact it's always excellent- I think the steaks are as good as places twice the price! I LOVE THE STEAK SALAD!! The people I was with had never been before and LOVED it! Everyone raved afterward! Our waiter was fun,friendly and efficient! Keep up the great work and don't EVER take the steak salad off the menu!!!

    We had a terrible experience at Canyon Creek on Saturday night. It began with the flat warm beer we were served. When I complained the waiter just said that's weird. They did change the keg but never took to bad beers off our bill. I ordered the Goat Cheese pasta and the pasta was not even cooked, it was actually crunchy. I did not complain due to the group I was with, but looking back I should have sent it back. My fault but just wasn't in the mood to make a fuss. We won't be returning. There are so many better restaurants that we don't need to go there,

    First thing our server asked if we were seeing a show. He paced his service based on the time we needed to leave which we really appreciated. Fish taco was OK but a bit dry. Prime rib dip was good but meat should be a sliced more thinly. Overall good for the price.

    Have been to CC couple times now. I think this is the last time. First, it is so dam dark in there. I mean REALLY dark that you cannot even walking to your table. And forget about reading the menu. Food -- found the potato soup FLAT FLAT FLAT. A touch of salt/spice would have done it wonders. The prime rib pasta -- again, the same thinig - FLAT FLAT FLAT. Nothing that I ate I could not duplicate at home, with moderate cooking skills. Waiter was friendly, quite surprised there is not a single rose wine on the wine list. Don't think I would eat here again.

We had a great waiter and the staff at reception even took a phone call from my sister trying to locate me in the restaurant and they found me! My sister gave me her order and joined us about 15 minutes later and sat down to have her meal and glass of wine ready for her! Staff really made it a good experience!

    Our experience were quite good, where we enjoyed the food. However, our waiter, Taylor, was quite rude to us. He got impatient for not understanding what we were saying (it was very noisy at that time). At the end when we finish our meals, he grabbed the bill, however, we were in a big rush to get out of the restaurant for another appointment, so after waiting for him to come back with the debit machine (8-10 min.), we became impatient and decided to go to the front to pay. After seeing us from afar, he came to grab the debit machine, and didn't even say 'thank you' after giving him plenty of tip. I want it back. We are sorry on our part for almost not giving him any credit/tip by walking to the front. Please re-train him to sympathize.

    We chose Canyon Creek due to its proximity to the Air Canada Center so we could walk to a concert after dinner. I have dined at this location of the restaurant chain many times. As usual, the food was quite good and the service was friendly and efficient. The decor could use some updating and the washrooms are in an awkward location near the front door. The bar is very small. I would also suggest making reservations as this is a popular spot for dining before going to events at the Roger's Center, ACC or Metro Convention Centre.

    We were in town for a concert at the ACC and I've often wanted to try this restaurant. Made an easy reservation through OpenTable. Got these 30 mins early and the restaurant took us right away. They're very efficient, especially because of how busy they were with the concert that night. The drinks, apps and main course came very promptly without being rushed. Just the right pace. The food was excellent and affordable, considering where we were (downtown Toronto). The location was great, clean and comfortable. Romantic even, as this was also our 28th wedding anniversary outing. Highly recommended.

    The service was wonderful..our server was outgoing, friendly and her timing was right on, to pass by our table or ask if we required anything, how is the meal etc..The ffod was wonderful and prepared to our order specifications, well plated and presented. The wine list is quite comprehensive and something for every taste or food choice. Love the Water that is also a project for water/wells in 3rd world countries. The server was sure to tell us about the project and she was very passionate about it. We were served very promptly as we had a concert to attend at the ACC. A great restaurant, special occasion or anytime and perfect if you are attending an ACC event and want an upscale dinner instead of pub food. We will be back. thanks
