    The Cannery was lacking that “special” touch that one gets with vintage dining. We were seated in a corner “nook” with no lighting. (Very small area, 2, 2 person tables with barely room enough to walk between). They had to bring a lamp for us to read the menu. (Another table was available if we wanted to come back at a later time 🙄). No personal touches such as “ are you here celebrating anything special”, “any allergies”, no bread basket, and tried to clear our plates before we were finished. Tables were so close together that you had to watch your footing due to the drop in the flooring near the fireplace. (Both myself and my husband loss our footing trying to get by the table behind us). My food was delicious, my husband found his to be mediocre and the presentation was as expected.

    We have dined here for over 20 years. First time ever the food was not excellent. Our steaks were overcooked a bit, somewhat dry, and chewy. My husbands potatoes had cold spots in them. A bit disappointed, as this was our anniversary dinner.

    We have gone to the Cannery for several years now. It was our preferred restaurant. The staff have always been attentive and the food had excellent portions for the price. This time when we went to the restaurant, there were fewer people than usual at the restaurant. We ordered our main meals, (my husband had the chicken and I the steak). As I said we have gone to the restaurant for several years, this time while waiting for our main course, we wondered where the bread was (something we always looked forward to as it was served warm and hot with butter) and we were told that now it is an appetizer we had to order? In a 4 star hotel? That was a surprise. When I received my steak, I was not offered horse radish, another surprise! Those little details are what made eating there special. We were rather disappointed this visit.

    Service was outstanding! Staff are friendly and attentive, without being pretentious or overzealous. High prices were expected in touristy Niagara-on-the-Lake, particularly post-pandemic and in lovely spa facility. Great ambiance with fireplaces and tasteful decor. Disappointed that the music was on repeat (heard the same sound three times). Unfortunately, the food was much too salty, especially the lamb gnocchi dish.

    Hot table could have had a better selection: eggs Benedict, traditional hash browns or roasted potatoes and different meat option than lamb at the carving station.

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a bed and breakfast. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing. The pistachio crust salmon was delicious. The Prime rib was overall very good. Only complain a little bit cold. The New York cake was decadent. Service was well-timed and friendly, cocktails were affordable."

    Very very dissatisfied. We Have been going to pillar and post several times per year for about 6 years and up until Dec 24 have had excellent food and the restaurant overall experience. BUT this time was terribly different. The two of us ordered had the four course Christmas turkey dinner on Dec 24th. The salad was supposed to sweet potato walnut cranberry vinaigrette but it was barely that, could hardly find those items in it and the dressing looked and tasted like Kraft ranch dressing, and although edible, not close to what we imagined. The turkey from the main course rather than being freshly carved from broiled bird looked and tasted like a common turkey roll. Yuck! For $80 per plate it was the worst meal taste wise and value wise we have ever had eating there!
