  • My worst review of our local Canyon
    MikeVIP
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    We are regulars of Canyon. So much so, most of the wait staff know our 12 year olds order. This past weekend, we went and were disappointed. Our table was next to a party of 10. The person serving us, had the party as well. As a result, she didn't pay much attention to us. Honestly, a couple of our regular servers paid more attention. When she did serve us "oh i am sorry i am late, sorry I forgot this" and worst "my apologizes for your food being cold". I couldn't believe it, our food was cold. I did tell her about it and all i got was an apology- not even an offer for a warmer serving, or a free coffee - nothing. Hope it is better next time - but won't sit near a party nor with the server...

    We have dined there quite a few times. Lately it has been once per month. The food is good, the service has been good. We have gone just as a couple as well as family, and friends etc. So good prices and good food.

    There were 3 adults & a child in our group & only 1 adult enjoyed her Pickerel meal to a small degree. My avacado lobster share plate was very bland as was my cousin's caesar salad & her daughter's kid's pasta plate. My cousin changed hers to a chicken sandwich & her daughter's to chicken fingers. My cousin still didn't really enjoy her chicken sandwich & her daughter was too tired by then to enjoy her chicken fingers.

    Dinner for 2, late midweek. Salad fresh and crisp. Steak excellent, tender and seasoned well. Seafood well cooked and flavorful. Greens a shade too al dente for my taste however my wife thought they were fine. Is becoming one of our go-to restaurants. Uncharacteristically loud that night due to two large parties. The staff did their best to seat us away from the noise which shows they are aware and the service was excellent.

    My husband is not a great beef eater but always would suggest canyon creek if we were going out. They have recently changed the menu - we found that most steaks were far too large to order. Also not complaining about price however offering only one side? Would like more combos and choices of smaller cuts.

    We had our team lunch at Canyon Creek, and we unanimously agreed it was an excellent choice. They had the table waiting for us when we got there, and the server was ready to take our order immediately. The food arrived after a reasonable amount of time -- given we were a party of 10. The service was great, and the food was excellent. We were back in time for afternoon meetings. Nicely done.

    Had the peppercorn steak.......it was totally engulfed in pepper!? Could hardly taste the steak after the first bite! As the saying goes, a little goes a long way?! Restaurant was not busy, but our wait staff was not very attentive. Did not refill my water glass, had to wait 15 min for our bill. My dining companion's meal on the other hand was bland.........rice was bland, and undercooked! Wait staff did not even ask if there was a problem with the meal, despite food left on the plate....

    We had a wonderful meal - the food was excellent, the service was superb (I was especially impressed when more than one server brought our meals and they knew who had ordered what without asking!) and it was a great evening! In addition, the restaurant bent over backwards to provide food that complied with my food sensitivities, providing sides that were cooked to order! :)

    My husband ordered a steak which he thought was great. It was the doneness that he requested, and the mushroom topping was wasn't overpowering. I ordered the cedar-planked salmon. It was bland, as was the rice. There was a tomato topping on it that also lacked flavour and didn't compliment it. We both really enjoyed our desserts (coconut banana cream pie and cheesecake). Nice place for a steak and a glass of wine. Wish they'd do something more exciting with their non-steak options.

    I was looking to take the family out for my wife's Birthday, my first choice was the Keg but when I called, they said that they don't take reservations on the weekend and after the last experience with having to wait over an hour, I wasn't going to have that. I had been to Canyon a few years ago and had a great experience so I reserved a table online. We sat down and our server was very nice, the food was great and everything went great, Canyon Creek will be my first choice from now on!

    Went there for their Wednesday night - Five at Five. A little disappointed when I got there as they said they no longer offer that. They should have taken it off the website if that was the case. Drove all the way there just for that.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 7/30/2014
    I've been to other branches of Canyon Creek before and really enjoyed it. This was my first time at this location. The patio was wonderful and service was great. We ordered the fish tacos and found them very dry. The ingredients were good but the dish was overall not very edible due to being very dry. Those fish tacos need some kind of extra sauce! That being said, I would try this location again and give it another chance.

    We had a very enjoyable dining experience at Scarborough Canyon Creek. The hostess opened the door for us as we approached - which was a very welcoming gesture. The manager greeted us and later came by to ask how we had enjoyed our dinner - so very attentive service there. Our waitress Wendy was very friendly with a good sense of humor and served our table promptly. The dinner itself was very good and a small mix-up with one of our orders was corrected within minutes. Overall a very good night out and we would not hesitate to come again.

    Had a most enjoyable meal, food delicious, roast beef cooked perfectly as requested, cesear salad nicely seasoned and hubby enjoyed the brownie to top everything off. Service very good, from being seated by hostess to dishes being served in appropriate time between courses by our very attentive server. All in all, a very good evening.

    Having eaten at this restaurant several times before, we were disappointed this time. The calamari was greasy as if cooked at too low a temperature, but the salads were very good as was the creme brule my wife had for dessert. But unlike past dinners, the 8 oz prime rib of beef was tough and tasteless. And the coffee was served merely warm.

    the food and service was excellent as usual however I thought a high priced item like the steak would be a better quality. I found a lot on nerves and hard to chew. It was not moist and succulent like I expected. That was a disappointment in my expectations since I frequently go steak houses. I just won't order the steak again. Not the same as usual.

    Dined on 5/17/2014
    My wife and I ordered House Sparkling Wine, Coconut shrimp, Lobster Guacamole and goat cheese chicken penne. The pre-dinner warm bread was nice (Grade A-). Coconut shrimp coating was little over-fried (please use thicken coconut strings) (grade B). Lobster Guacamole was well prepared with a generous portion of lobster (grade B+). The chicken in the penne tasted like it was not freshly cook and the goat cheese was lacking. I asked for more cheese, instead of fresh shedded Parmigiano-Reggiano, I was given a little bowl of low quality parmesam cheese (grade B-). Service is adequate. A little smile can go a long way. The table was very nice, facing an open fireplace and relative quiet for this type of restaurant.

    We find that Canyon Creek consistently offers great meals and great service at affordable prices. The staff is very attentive and helpful and we have frequented the restaurant both for "dinner for two" as well as for larger family group occasions. The menu offers choices that will satisfy a wide range of tastes and budgets, all presented in a very pleasing manner. In all, a very non-rushed, pleasant experience.

    Greeted warmly by hostess. Taken quickly to our reserved table, hostess gave her name and name of our server, who was told would be along momentarily. Server appeared within minutes, very nice and friendly. Recieved our drink order promptly. Enjoyed our surroundings and before we knew our meal was laid before us. It was well presented, my husband, who had the filet was very impressed, cooked just they way he likes it. Usually, he has to send it back at other restaurants before they get it right, but not at Canyon Creek. A first!!!!!!! My steak was perfect but the lobster mash needed a bit more seasoning for my liking and the veg. was to al dente.... Overall, a very pleasent experience and would recommend this to others.
