Excellent meal. Tough choice between Special Turkey dinner or Prime Rib. Prime rib won. Perfectly done to medium rare. Have already booked to return!

although a little on the pricey side, the food is excellent. Presentation very good. Service very good. was surprised that cannot pre-book a reservation unless you are staying at the Inn. finally managed to book through "open table" but not sure what the fuss was about as the restaurant was just about empty.

Waiter Derek was great and very helpful and very personable.

He was very busy so service was a little slow but totally not his fault, he had a lot of tables to attend to.

will be back again next month

A cozy and quiet atmosphere for a date night or a special occasion. Very intimate in a traditional setting. Our server David was probably the best server we’ve ever had at a restaurant, ever. We celebrated our 5 year anniversary and he made us feel very special and helped us find dairy free substitutes for our dishes.

The menu could have more appetizer choices. Main dishes were good sized portions.

We will definitely come back one day!

Booked reservation months in advance (even called to confirm reservation 3 days ahead) but when we arrived for our dinner (to celebrate a very special occasion), I was told in a very unprofessional way in front of my guests that they were only accepting dining patrons who were staying at their hotel (we were staying at a nearby B&B). They did eventually seat us but didn't communicate our situation to our waiter so when it was time to settle the bill, it was a huge mess and took a long time to sort out (charging "special hotel guest prices" vs. actual price and restaurant staff not sure how to handle it ... right in front of us). The food was very very good but the other chaos took away from the wonderful experience it should have been!

Food was average, didn’t know that menu was with such a limited choice if you come as a part of the package with the stay in the hotel. Not everyone likes cheesecake, should be a choice of at least three desserts. Very poor value.

This was our first time to the Cannery Restaurant. We had a 2 hour time slot and the meal was spaced out perfectly to allot for this time available. Appreciated the time between courses in order to savor what we had just eaten as well as relax and enjoy what was about to come next. I had the stuffed chicken and my husband had the salmon. Extremely tasty. The cheesecake desert was the best we had ever tasted. Hope to visit again in the not too distant future. Bon Appetit !!!

We drive to NOTL several times a year just to have breakfast in the Cannery Restaurant at Pillar and Post. We throughly enjoy the food and ambiance. We enjoying catching up and chatting with our favourite waiters, Frank & Silvana. For us there is no place in Toronto as warm and inviting, we look forward to our next visit very soon!

How incredibly disappointing! I booked a lunch reservation to eat in the Cannery and was told the restaurant did not open for lunch and was sent to eat in the lounge! This was supposed to be a special birthday lunch for myself and my girlfriend, which I mentioned in the booking. The menu we were offered was no where near comparable to that of the Cannery. I found this to be incredibly misleading. I would never have booked a special birthday lunch in a dark and dismal lounge in the basement with so many wonderful and bright alternatives in Niagara on the lake.

Had 2 meals there. My husband and I had the short ribs, salmon, and chicken. By far, the short ribs were our favourite.

Delicious and well presented. Excellent service from the wait staff. Beautiful setting, fireplaces all throughout the large restaurant to give it a cozy ambiance. Because of COVID all the tables were spread out. Five star ⭐️ establishment.

Very nice place to eat. We dined with our 1.5 year old daughter and they were extremely accommodating. It was very quiet, which was nice but I felt like I was on eggshells with my daughter. Overall it was very nice and the food was great. It is a bit more expensive than I am used to, but my expensive might be someone else’s cheap
