    I ordered the chipotle top sirloin and it was delicious and cooked to my preference. Although my other two friends' steaks were a little too cooked to their liking, they still enjoyed the meal. The molten lava cake was not bad although it would've been better if the cake was served warm rather than room temperature. The service was good, no complaints there. Overall, good experience!

    Dined on 11/23/2014
    Hubby & I had been off chain restaurants for a while as we used to live in downtown Toronto, & there's a LOT of choice there. As we live & work in the suburbs now, we hardly ever get out to the city. Thankfully there are some good options in Mississauga, and Canyon Creek is one of them. Recently we had dinner there & we both had the coffee-rubbed steak. I like my steaks medium rare & mine was done perfectly! Red in the centre & a nice sear on the outside. Hubby likes his medium, & it was done perfectly as well. This is a far cry from two different Keg locations (Niagara Falls & Heartland) we had visited where the steaks were overdone & the servers both told us it was because of the lighting. (Is this in the Keg's training manual?) The sides were good as well. Onion crisps & real mashed potatoes. I was also pleased to taste that my veggie side (carrots & green beans) were cooked from fresh & not frozen.....you can always tell from the texture. Service is attentive & better than other restaurants in the area. Best place for steaks in the Square One area!

    We were here to celebrate a birthday. It was a busy Saturday night in November. The noise was so loud I couldn't here the conversation 2 seats away. A steak was way overcooked. A glass of low grade wine for $15 was an insult. The staff was pleasant but the wait for main course was ridiculous. Always had excellent meals in the past. What happened to you, Canyon Creek?

    Canyon Creek never disappoints. We were there for a work dinner and the service was very attentive (thanks Kevin!) and the food is always fantastic. The bartender was making special martinis that weren't on the menu for a few people at our table so we really appreciated that special touch. The items on the menu aren't budget-friendly, but the quality of everything at Canyon Creek absolutely makes the cost justified! We'll continue to be happy return customers here

    Had a great time with my wife and kids on my birthday treat. The atmosphere was serene and the food was 'Nulli Secundus' (second to null). My kids refused the kids' menu which was great as I had the opportunity to eat out of everyone's plates. Nearly impeccable customer service also. We plan on going back (without the kids) for a quiet romantic dinner pretty soon.

    Nice enough place.....service was ok, atmosphere good, just felt the food ultimately wasn't worth what was charged for it. Steak & Lobster mash plate was ok, and yes, I know Lobster automatically jacks up the price, but $30 for an entrée with mashed potatoes, green beans (both super cheap to buy), a chewy steak (seasoned well, but too chewy), and the lobster on top of the mash. Seemed too high. My wife's pasta dish was ok on taste, but she felt we've been other places where she got the same amount on the plate for less $ or more on the plate for a similar price point. When you're trying to present as a bit more upscale than your Jack Astors or Milestones, etc., then you have to feel it was worth the price bump, and food-wise, don't think it was for us.

    Service was very good. Waitress was pleasant, respectful and attentive. Food was good. We shared tai wraps as an appetizer. Didn't realize it was do it yourself wrapping but it was good.. Would not have been what I would have chosen had I known in advance. Lunch chicken salad was very good. Would definitely recommend the restaurant for good food, service and quality.

    It would be helpful if the Square 1 location have private rooms for large parties. The food is great but it was not the best location. We needed a private room and if this booking was not last minute, we would have gone to another location. We did try the location on Airport but it was booked.

    Very good food/service but noisy. If you want a quiet setting, this is not the place to be but everything else was very good. I'm starting to get tired of the chain restaurants, such as these, that are noisy. They pack them in with too many surrounding tables. Place the families on a separate side.

    The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. We ordered panko chicken and prime ribs with mushrooms on the side. We're not big eaters and the servings are big, there's always 'take home' bag. My husband and I loved Canyon Creeks prime ribs, so juicy and tender. The wait staff were attentive. There was a party of maybe 10 with children so it was a little bit noisy for me but all in all, it was a pleasant evening. I'll always be back at CC SqO.

    I usually love Canyon Creek and I've been to the one in Square One at least 4-5x. For some reason though, the last time we went, it wasn't busy that much and the music was so loud. The music didn't seem the ambiance, it sounded like music you would hear at Montana's or something. It just kinda didn't set the ambiance that I wanted... which I usually get at Canyon Creek.

    One of our diners is Celiac + has allergies to beef and chicken; therefore, her selections from the menu are limited. She particularly liked Canyon Creek because it had pork on its menu. We were very disappointed to find that this item had been removed from the menu. This left only the salmon as a viable choice. We are now looking for another restaurant that will cater to her allergies and has more than one menu option. Very disappointing since I believe we have dined at Canyon Creek 4 times this year and was always the spot to go whenever she was visiting from London, ON.

    Tasty food! We never felt rushed and enjoyed the time with our friends. Because tables are so close together, our waiter appeared not to have heard my husbands order and brought the wrong meal. A correct meal was replaced; however because the wait was so long to replace the meal, my husband ate his meal well after all of us had finished ours. It also took the waiter a long time to understand our drink orders. The orders were not difficult - 3 lattes and 1 tea!

    Really enjoyed their Peppercorn Steak. It was actually peppercorn crusted, unlike some other peppercorn steaks I've had elsewhere. I was quite pleased with the quality of food on this visit, and the hostess was especially friendly and pleasant. She warned us that the main dining room had a large group in it and that the noise level might be a little high, but we stay in the dining room regardless (rather than the bar area) and the noise was fine. I like the atmosphere at this place.

    We love food and we enjoy steak across GTA, and we often visit Canyon Creek for its relaxing atmosphere and good quality food. The quality is consistent and service is always friendly. We sat at dining room this time, we had lobster guacamole and the parkaro chicken as appetizers. The portion is always generous and basically, we were almost full even before our entrees were served! My husband had a sirloin steak and it was cooked right to medium rare which he had requested! Awesome! My burger was good. Overall, it is not the cheapest restaurant in Mississauga but sure deliver consistently good steak in the neigborhood.

    We had notified the restauraunt that we were there to celebrate my boyfriends 27th birthday there were 12 of us at our table that night and there was only one waitress to serve all 12 of us and she didnt look like she was happy to be at her job. I even made several jokes and she didnt seem to care to laugh. She took a long time to get drinks to the table and didn't bring out bread and honey butter until our apps were on the table. She never bothered to ask us if we wanted more bread, she simply cleared the table and let us wait 30+ minus for our main courses. The staff never bothered to sing happy birthday to my boyfriend either or bring him out dessert. Even though the food is good, having a server with a poor attitude ruins everything.

    We have been coming to sq1 Canyon Creek for years- even got engaged here! Never a bad meal. Every time we come it is always a great steak! We have celebrated quite a few occasions here and they always make you feel special. Great service, nice ambiance and best steakhouse! Only downside is The smoking on the patio while you eat - Really a turn off! They make an excellent mojito. Canyon Creek is a great location and excellent for date night.
