Excellent food and reasonable
Excellent food and reasonable prices for the quality. A small venue. The place was refreshingly quiet - I suspect that it hasn't quite caught on yet with Calgarians. I would suggest going there before it becomes so popular you can't get a seat.

I love the modern cafe feel
I love the modern cafe feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Was there for lunch, but there were options for breakfast and dinner as well. The burger was amazing and the vegetable soup was delicious. The homemade ketchup saved the cold fries. Service was very friendly.

We went for brunch. Some unique and standards on the menu. What we ordered was delicious.
We loved the artsy modern decor and the service was attentive.
Only drawback was the room was rather cool and air con was blowing directly on us. We asked to have the air turned off but we were told the thermostat was broken. We did try it and yes it seemed to be that way! Bring a sweater and order a warm drink.

Great value in an intimate space
2 of us tried out Canvas for the first time. The space is quite small but the decor is quite neat and modern. If it was a little warmer, the patio seating would have been fantastic for a light after work dinner. The burger was superb, and I would definitely go back for it. The calamari dish, while it was a very generous portion for being an appetizer, was way too spicy with all the jalapeno peppers in it. Without the heat, the dish would have been excellent, as the calamari was perfectly tender. I would definitely go back to try some of the other dishes, as the price point in this restaurant is very good.

Doesn't seem to be a very
Doesn't seem to be a very well known place yet since I was able to bring a fairly large group for dinner. Service was fantastic, the lady was attentive and showed a good knowledge of both the menu and wine list. The appetizer portions were huge! I didn't have room for dessert, but the coffee was excellent.

New menu and chef. The food was a little slow for our large group but the kitchen sent a free appetizer out for our wait. Great food. Fantastic ambience. Somewhat limited menu but well worth giving it a try.

The ambiance in the restaurant
The ambiance in the restaurant was wonderful! Original art work all over and a gallery in the basement. The best champagne by the glass of anywhere in Calgary!

The first time I ever went to Canvas I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Maria Pleasa, sat the evening sipping wine and eating amazing home made chocolates over fantastic conversation. The food for value has been amazing and the quality is top notch (service and food)
