    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.

    The last time we came to eat at this particular Canyon Creek was almost exactly one year ago and it knocked our socks off. This time around it was completely disappointing. Our waiter was very friendly but not very attentive. There were several times that we had piles of used plates from appetizers sitting at the end of our table that were not picked up and even more times that we had run out of drinks but could not find him or anyone else for re-fills. They had already run out of soup and french fries which is inexcusable for any restaurant. My veggie burger was not very good, the bun tasted old and stale - I asked for BBQ sauce twice and only got ketchup. By the end, we just wanted to pay our bill and get the hell out of there.

    It was really great! My only complaint was that it was really too dark, and that the initial dish I ordered had something in it that the description did not state it did. However, they got me new food and did not charge for the initial dish so I can't complain. The other thing is our dessert came so late the ice-cream was nearly completely melted. Then again it was super busy by then.

    Our party of three went to Canyon Creek for dinner before a Jays game and were pleasantly surprised by the good service and quality of meals. Prices were not cheap, but certainly reasonable for what we got. There was an interesting selection of beer and wine, hot bread before the meals and the steaks and salads were tasty and had a little twist - not the standard chain fare. The hostess and server were friendly and efficient, and the service was attentive but not hurried. The only issue is that it is very dark and therefore difficult to read the menu, but if you have a flashlight or a dining companion with really good eyesight you'll be fine. It's worth a visit!

    My husband & I shared the calamari, very tasty. He had the Chipotle Sirloin steak, marinated in chipotle Tabasco but it wasn't hot, just very flavourful. I had the Signature Aged Prime Rib, so tender & delicious. Wine: Chalk Hill Blue Shrah Cabernet (Australia) it went very nice. Reviews said that it was too dark & yes there isn't a lot of light but thought it added to the ambiance. If you are in the over 40 group & need glasses for reading, make sure you have your glasses with you. The Decor was tastefully decorated & modern. Our waitress was attentive but not bothersome. They gave me the wrong size Caesar salad & she noticed this & brought me another one. We had a really enjoyable experience at Caynon Creek and definitely would go back.

    Amidst the touristy destinations near the tower and Rogers Centre, my wife, father-in-law and I enjoyed a very nice dinner last night- at a fraction of the cost of 360 View. I thought the lettuce wrap appetizer was exceptional, the atmosphere was warm and the scene was appealing. We would all return.

    This was our third visit to Canyon Creek, each time as a group - 9 people this time. We were given the "bankers' room" which was great. We had our server turn off the TV as it was a distraction. Everyone enjoyed their choices - the steak and lobster and the brown butter pickerel were the most popular dishes with six people ordering those items. Service was great, our server ensured that everyone was felt welcome going that extra mile to make for a great evening.

    Aside from a forgotten caesar salad for someone in our party, this was a perfect evening. The food was good, and since I don't typically eat meat out, it was nice to enjoy a well-prepared salmon dish (and on that note, I wholeheartedly recommend the cedar plank salmon to anyone who loves a good fish dish). The wine selection was vast and contained some of the well-known selections from Niagara and elsewhere in Ontario (while we might not have the best wines, it is nice to see restaurants source locally). My girlfriend and a friend of our had meat, which is obviously from the name the specialty of the house, and they were both indulging in their meals. The dessert list offered a good variety, and the service was impeccable.

    We were there at a quiet time, before 5 on a Sunday afternoon. Restaurant looks very nice, with rustic décor and arts-and-crafts lanterns. The food was quite good. I had the lobster quacamole (delicious) and the fish tacos (also good). Our server was not busy, so she was quite attentive. For a good, downtown Toronto restaurant, the price was not bad at all.

    This restaurant is below street level, with a dark cave-like atmosphere. We used our phones to light the menu so that we could read it. It took 45 mins to get our dinner ordered. In asking to rush the order, the waiter said he would try but that the kitchen had over 200 other tickets already! If you are prepared to seat people for dinner, you should be prepared to serve and feed them in a timely fashion! The women's washroom was not clean. Floors were wet, with damp/wet paper towels/toilet paper strewn over the floor, sinks hadn't been cleaned in some time. I realize Canyon Creek is not fine dining but I would expect better service and better cleanliness for the prices paid. Overall - a bad experience! Dine at the many options nearby!

    I ordered from the summerlicious menu. I was dining with three others. Their choices were so much better than mine. I choose the wrong one of the three choices of entree. I ordered the Cubano which was somewhat like a Monte Cristo in that it was a melted cheese sandwich with ham. It was just OK- they ran out of the dessert I wanted which was the banana cream dessert. I had the chocolate mousse but it had chili in it. What a way to ruin lovely chocolate. The others' entrees looked wonderful and I had a taste of them and they were!!! No one wanted a bite of mine needless to say.

    We stopped by Canyon Creek for the lunch during Summerlicious as what was being offered sounded appetizing. The ceasar salad was disappointing! Basically torn up romaine, 5 bacon bits, a few bits of parm and quite possibly bottled dressing! Nothing special at all. The portions were on the small side too. We had the trout and Peruvian chicken. The trout was supposed to be served with qinoa which was nowhere to be seen. The chicken was accompanied by 6 pieces of potatoes... Somehow the roasted vegetables didn't make it on the plate either. For dessert we had the banana cream pie and lemon pound cake. Both quite tasty but minuscule. The cream pie was served in a ramekin the size of mini cupcake and thus ended too fast!
