    The food was good but the service was lacking. I'm not sure if the server was trying to be funny or something, but he made several rude comments. He also rudely interrupted us repeatedly while taking our order. This is also not a big deal but he forgot to bring bread or anything in the beginning which left us waiting hungrily for our food for quite some time. Even though the food was good, I will not be returning as the horrible service completely ruined the feel of the night.

    We had a great dinner at Canyon Creek. Celebrated a birthday dinner with my family. We really enjoyed the fish tacos and the complimentary birthday cake. Our waiter Kyle was fabulous. He was really friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. Great local place for a special occasion dinner! Kyle, thanks very much!

    The overall experience was okay but I / we were disappointed in the portion size and prices. It has been over three months since our last visit. The food portions have significantly decreased and yet the price increased? The chicken, the pickerel, and the prime rib sandwich were all smaller than in the past. The price also has gone up .50 to 2.00 per each entrée. Usually we/ I leave 'stuffed' and yet this time we left hungry. The server also did not offer more bread. Usually they do. I will try one more time to see if this was an isolated incident or if it is all Canyon restaurants. We usually attend the one at Sherway location and Niagara Casino location. The server was excellent.

    The food overall was about a 5.5 out of 10. Prime rib was not the best but it was good. My wife had the fish tacos, she made me taste them to prove how bad they were. Bland, void of texture and soggy. The worst I have ever had(and I have tried them at Buffalo Wild Wing). kids meals were standard not bad, not great. I would say overpriced for the quality of food, but the restaurant is nice in appearance. Don't think I would go back, not because it was that bad, just too many places to try before I would spend 150$ there again.

    My partner and I had made reservations for dinner at Canyon Creek hoping to enjoy a decent steak dinner. We went under the presumption that it would be at par with franchise steakhouses like The Keg. While the prices reflected that notion, the quality fell a little short. Noticing other patrons around we had deduced that it was geared more towards "Having drinks with friends" or "Socially eating" than what we had in mind. Service and Food came by super fast.

    Hi.... I have been to your restaurant before and loved it. This time however I was disappointed in a few things. The first thing is the main course arrived well before we were done the appetizer. The other issue is the steak was not cooked as requested.... Both were medium well when one should have been medium and the other medium rare. Other than that all was good

    First impressions are important and our server Amanda gets an A+ for outstanding service. Pleasant, helpful and personable - she started our evening off right. The quality and taste of the food was exceptional. Strip loin and top sirloin steaks were delicious. The Dukkah Chicken and Quinoa Salad is excellent and is a great choice for anyone looking for a lighter healthy meal. I definitely will order it again.

    From start to finish the dining experience was perfect. Great server who actually listened when we asked her to pace our courses so we could eat at leisure. Food was outstanding and , only minor complaint was that asparagus was slightly tough on one plate. Too full for dessert but had coffee and tea and again the server heard and my latte was hot not lukewarm as most places usually deliver. We were entertaining guests from Australia and they were super impressed

    The dim lighting could have been avoided after all it was Mother's day not Valentine's Day - my mom had trouble reading the menu ;) Other than that, the waiter was attentive considering the busy evening. We were a group of 5 and the food came all at the same time which was nice so we could all enjoy the meal. Upper management had all "hands on deck" which was nice to see to ensure all the guests were taken care of. The food was very good. I would definitely go back for the steak. Overall, a very great evening.

    They may have been busy due to Mother's Day, but there is really no excuse for all of the following to go wrong in one lunch. After seating us at the wrong table after we've settled in and placed our orders, we were relocated to another table to accommodate a large group that was coming in. Once our meals came, they were set in front of the wrong person. I assume this is because we moved tables. The burger was missing the bacon that was ordered, the chicken dish was missing rice, and my salad had a large piece of plastic wrap tossed in it. At this point we were all completely turned off from the restaurant. However, the manager did come over to talk to us, and gave me a gift certificate, and my meal was complimentary. Perhaps we'll go back.

    This was my most disappointing visit to Canyon Creek. Previously, the service was extremely good and attentive. This past Saturday was a departure from that. When we arrived 5 minutes late due to road closures, I was told hour reservation was cancelled as they apparently cancel after 15 minutes. When I said it had not been 15 minutes, the woman at the front told me we'd have to wait. We were served by at least 3 servers. My daughter and I ordered the bacon cheddar Canyon burger with no onion. My daughter's arrived with lots of onion! We both asked for ketchup, but the server never brought it. My daughter asked for a drink refill, but never got it. I hope this was an isolated occurrence as I had always been happy with the service.

    We went for a Mother's Day celebration. We were given the very first table in the middle of the walkway when entering into the restaurant. I asked to change to a booth and somewhere quieter, as it was next to a table with 8 kids. I was offered the booth just right besides the 1st table. I asked for another one, but was told all tables were reserved unless I wait. I didn't want my mom to wait, so I took the booth. There're at least 4 empty booths, and not filled until 45 mins later. We felt our request was not being considered. My husband ordered a medium rare prime rib, but a medium one came. He sent it back, he then got a medium rare but it was an end piece and the staff did not indicate as such, we felt as though we were being tricked.

    I ordered the ancient grains salad which was delicious. My friends ordered dishes from other salads, salmon, prime rib and steak and everyone said they were very good. We ordered wine as well. Our server, Kyle, was great. Professional, friendly and knew his stuff. There was a spill at the table, not by staff, that couldn't have been handled any faster and more discreetly. Very impressed with Vaughan Canyon Creek!

    The food and service were amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection. Our only complaint was that they did not book us in on Open Table and we had to justify to Open Table that we had been there by submitting check #, time of receipt, etc... Open Table actually threatened to discontinue our account because of this restaurant's negligence.

    We were celebrating a birthday...meal was great, but were were at a very 'energetic' location...right at the front door where (almost) everyone passed to get into the dining room. It wouldn't have been my first choice for a table as others were empty, but 'you take what you can get'. I thought that by making a reservation we would have been placed in a quieter spot.
