    A group of us went and were celebrating two birthdays! We let the servers know and they accommodated us by bringing cake and singing happy birthday. We had a great time and will be back again for sure.

  • Bad waiter
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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.

  • Decent Dinner Before a Concert
    AnneGal
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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.

    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

    outstanding food and great restaurant, too bad we got a poor waitress. I emailed them about it and waiting for a reply. I recommend this restaurant to everybody. Always had great service from the male waiters, but have had 2 very poor females serve us. I would prefer to be discreet about it but if I ever get another bad server I will be making a point to management.

    This is a great place to go before the hockey game. I like that you can book online. The food is fabulous and not too pricy. The only downside is that no one answers the phone when you call. You have to leave a message and let them call you back at their convenience.

    Been here a few times, normally really good and consistent but we went when it was busy and it took 25 minutes to get one drink and our food was flavorless - 4 steaks came out in under 10 minutes, either they were precooked or it was a mistake made at a different table that we happened to order. Service was apologetic about the wait on drinks but we watched every other table near us trying to find their server for something they needed multiple times. Probably won't be back.

    The food at this restaurant is very good...we had a top sirloin steak served with a loaded baked potato and it arrived hot and nicely presented. They have a large wine list and prices for alcoholic beverages are very fair considering this is a big city. Would definitely return in the future and recommend to friends and family if ever in the area.

    From start to finish my friend and I were both very impressed with the experience. We made a reservation online, days in advance. We ended up arriving nearly half an hour before our scheduled reservation, however the hosts were able to seat us right away. Following this our service was exceptional. Our server was very knowledgable and not overbearing. He gave us time to think, and answered any questions. The timing of the meal was great as we were out before our scheduled commitment. Overall, very impressed. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who asked. Well done!

    We decided to reserve before the concert and also celebrate the passing of my grandparents as it was the last restaurant we took them to before passing. Our server Donna was a hoot! It was both her quick and positive attitude that made it fun! Food was fantastic ( yes the asian nachos and lobster mash entrée were fantastic). It was a little pricey but thats only due to me having one too many beers. All in all a very good dinner and service. Will go out of my waqy the next time to return. They also have private rooms which look great for private parties.

    Great space -- felt private and comfortable with calm lighting, music at a normal level etc. Pretty extensive menu... Only managed to test out appetizers --our table split a number of them -- but they were great (will def return for the Thai lettuce wraps!!)! The service was what really stood out, though. Our waitress was outstanding: knowledgeable about the menu, helpful, etc. Wonderful experience!

    My friends and I had lunch at the Front St location of Canyon Creek - the staff were all friendly and made sure we were looked after. Our main server, Sean was great - continuously checking in to see if we were good, giving feedback and answering questions about menu items, etc... the ambience and decor were very nice, but not too stuffy that we couldn't talk with raised voices for fear of disturbing other diners. Would love to check it out after work for drinks! Kudos to the staff at Canyon Creek.

    We were visiting Toronto and were looking to book a restaurant near our hotel. We were quite surprised when we walked through the doors since the main entrance to the restaurant is quite deceiving. We had a wonderful meal and the service and atmosphere were excellent. Since it was late, my husband and I shared the calamari and we each had a salad, the Grilled Chicken Caesar and the Thai Chicken Salad and some wine. Looking forward trying some other dishes on our next visit.

    In the day and age of a restaurant on every corner in the city of Toronto. It's hard for a chain to stand out. However if you compare it to other chains you will find this falls a bit below the mark. This is one of the better canyon creek's you will find. But if you place it against something like the Keg you are going to find it's not the best for the money you pay. Don't stay away but it shouldn't be your first choice.

    4 of 9 arrived ahead. The next 3 arrived and were seated. Waiter came in and gave first 4 their appetizers and ignored the other 3. Waited for 10 min, and then he goes "oh, you arrived"... Then every time we asked for something, he'd say "let me go check my other tables first, then I'll get that for you". Just thought it kind of odd/rude. Also, he kept making jokes but they weren't funny, they were annoying. One of the girls ordered no potatoes, but wanted extra veggies - he even repeated it back to her - and still brought her potatoes. 2 of the steaks were mixed up - one who had ordered rare and the other who had ordered medium.

    I love Canyon Creek! It is more reasonable than exclusive high end steak restaurants in Toronto and the steak here is always perfect. The vegetables come well prepared, fresh with still a little crunch to it. Service has been consistently excellent as well. It is dimly lit and a great place to bring a date. Ask for a booth when you make the reservations if you want some privacy. I keep bringing my family. This is our favourite steakhouse!

    We went here for dinner following a game at the Rogers Centre. We wanted something nicer than the many casual joints in the area so we tried this place. The food was moderately pricey and the ambience was ok but it was nothing special. They were out of most of the steaks on the menu at 8 pm so I ordered the "double" chicken breast. It was really tiny which is unusual given the name. My buddy got the only steak they had in stock which was also small and had no real character or flavor. The sides and appetizers were ordinary and over-priced for what they were. The place was overall below average and we expected more. I think we would have been better served at a casual place where you expect an average meal.
