    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!

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.

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.

    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.
