Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "The food was disappointing, the salads were small and seemingly not fresh. The cost certainly did not reflect the quality."

  • "Checked out Canyon Creek for the first time during summerlicious and I will definitely be coming back. Our waitress was great and the food was great. I would recommend making reservations in advance because it does get busy."

  • "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."

  • "The service was too slow. We went for summerlicious and expected a lot more of the menu. The food they brought us was not that great. I would say the best thing we ate was the bread they bring you at the beginning. I would not go back to pay full price for their menu."

  • "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!"

  • "Wow, the blackened chicken breast served over ali chili sauce with jalapeno crema was the most wonderful meal. Canyon Creek never disappoints me with an inventive meal. And serving desserts in those wonderful jars; what a great idea! I must do that it home when I host a big party. The service, as usual, was marvelous. Thank you, Canyon Creek! You never disappoint."

  • "We had a group of 12. Food was prepared to order. No one quibbled about their order. The one child in the group was very happy with his meal. Waiter very friendly but slow. Not certain why there was a noticeable delay between the courses, so may not necessarily be the place if on a timeline. That said, the food was very good and everyone was very satisfied with their meals."

  • "The meat was uncooked on the inside and all burnt on the outside. I didn't complain because I had to leave early. I didn't want to be late for work. But the server was really really nice. I liked their service but it's just the food.."

  • "I had made a reservation online for 6pm for 4 people. We showed up on time but no table was ready - in fairness it was unexpectedly busy due to the final game of World Cup and the hostess was very apologetic and nice about the wait. Our table service was not good - we were already 30 minutes late sitting down and had to leave by 7:45 to get to a concert but when we inquired (after 25 minutes) if our food would be coming soon we were told that "the order was put in as soon as he got it, there's nothing else he can do". When the food did come it was all very good (thai wraps and burgers). It's unfortunate that one harried waiter could have such an effect but end result is I won't be going back here."

  • "For a busy downtown restaurant regularly visited by people on a schedule (i.e. concert or event goers), we were really disappointed in the level of service we received. Good: We had reservations & were seated immediately, orders were taken in a timely fashion, apps arrived as expected. Bad: Our meals didn't arrive until almost an hour later. Hotspot kitchens should be well prepared for busy nights based on their experience with the type of clientele who frequent this location. When we asked to speak with the manager, he/she never showed up. We were too much in a rush to follow up, and had to gulp our food and leave desserts uneaten in order to make our event on time. From arrival to departure, it was almost a full 2 hours. Unacceptable."

  • "We dined with a party of 6 on Sunday July 13th before the Queen Concert. The server we had was excellent, as he tried to make the best of poorly run kitchen and bar. Our drinks took over 15 mins to arrive, our food was late and cold and when we ordered the Canyon Creek Appetizer we were told they were "out" - this was at 5:30 in the afternoon. We arrived at 5:30 and our food was served at 7:15 and the steaks were cold. Then we had to send it back and then wolf it down fast so we made it over to the ACC by 8pm."

  • "I love Canyon Creek but this specific location needs more lighting...no natural light coming in due to the fact it is in the basement of the building so there should be more light so you don't feel like you are in the basement."

  • "I went there with my bf for the Summerlicious. The service speed is pretty high, I guess it's because of the summerlicious, which is good cuz we all have things to do in the afternoon. I ordered a trout as main, watermelon salad as starter and mousse as dessert. But my bf's berry salad got too little berry and too much lettuce... He ordered a sandwich, which he didn't know at first, but the crispy bread around it was really nice, and the fries were excellent; then, chocolate as dessert. I loved the chocolate, it's melting in me, GOSH! So I finished the chocolate. The mousse was too sweet. Overall it's great, especially at the price."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food was great but I wished that the Summerlicious lunch menu had other choices for the appetizer besides 3 salads. For my main entree I chose the trout which came with a huge mound of cole slaw...more salad! I love salad but it was too much."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Four of us went for Summerlicious lunch. Food was very good. Watermelon and berry salads as appetizers were very good. We tried all 3 mains--sandwich, fish, chicken and each was good. Dessert was tasty and just right portion size--a little cup size. Our group had banana coconut cream pie and a chocolate mousse. Service was very good and just right attentiveness. I've been multiple times to this location for lunch and dinner and they are consistently very good."

  • "summerlicious lunch at canyon creek was a bit disappointing this year compared to the one in previous year as food quality & menu items were a lot more fascinating in previous year(s). This year, the salad accompanying fish lunch entree lacked creativity & flavour. Desserts (tried 2) were still amazing this year."

  • "Booked reservations from out of town based on restaurant reviews. All reviews lived up to our experience at canyon creek. My boyfriend and I went to dinner for 8pm June 21st and arrived in a relaxing environment. Our server Taylor was awesome. He suggested his recommendations and popular dishes at canyon creek, helping us narrow down our choices. We need did not need to ask for a single thing, he was observant and on the ball our entire meal. The best waitor we have ever had actually. If every restaurant held similar staffing needs I feel like other restaurants could be this enjoyable as well. Very clean environment (washrooms, tables, enterance). Food was amazing, 10/10. We had an appetiZer, entree and dessert, 2 cocktails = $105) ."

The food was delicious; I had the prime rib and Asian taco appetizer, and the service was kind and accommodating, but not stuffy. The restaurant wasn't very busy, so the meals came out quick and fresh. They also had an extensive wine list which made finding the perfect food and wine pairing a breeze. I would highly recommend this location for any group dinner or family celebration."

  • "server was unprofessional and all over the place with patronizing attitude. brought the bread, knocked over the butter and the blob ended on the other side of the table. asked how my steak was like he a typical script when i clearly hadn't cut into my steak yet. waited over 15mins for my server to pass by just to ask for the bill.....another 5-7mins before the bill arrived...then another 5-7mins before he brought over the machine. I was back at the office half an hour late. Clearly didn't deserve a tip. Maybe I should just go at night when Kenny's working"

  • "My husband enjoyed his prime rib dinner and stated that it was the best he's ever had in Ontario! My pickerel dinner was just OK, a bit rubbery but our server and the manager comp'd our dessert to compensate for my meal. The overall experience was fabulous! We would definitely dine there again and refer this establishment to friends, family and associates."

For us it has become the go to restaurant for pretty much any occasion. The staff is amazingly well trained. Everyone is not just friendly but they go out of their way to make sure one's experience is a wonderful one. We love Canyon Creek and will certainly return many more times. Cheers to a very well run establishment! Christine"
