Wonderful experience as always! We were served by the owner and she was so pleasant! Food was prepared perfectly. Their brunch menu is small, but it is so well thought out. Their pork belly and lemon ricotta flapjacks are to die for!!!! Can’t wait to come back and eat here again.

My husband and I love Canteen and are never disappointed with the food or cocktails. We usually come for brunch and my husband loves the feature chicken & waffles (he hasn't had one yet that he didn't like) and I am in love with their Dutch Baby Pancake (order a side of the brown sugar bacon with it to make it even better!). The only complaint we ever have with Canteen is the noise level. It's a popular place and you definitely need a reservation for brunch, but because of this, it can get quite noisy. Still worth it though for the amazing eats!

Our family of 11 and a baby had a fantastic dinner. I booked on open table but it would only allow me to book for 6. I called the restaurant to see if they could accommodate 12 off us, which they did! I had a difficult time getting into any restaurant last min on a Fri evening, so this was great! We ordered 1 of every appy and they were all Fabulous! Everyone also ordered mains and all the meals were very good! I would def return ! We are from out of town and it was a great! Thanks for accommodating us and the great meal!

Everything was good except we waited for 45-50 minutes for our food. But we were given another round of coffees...which reminds me...I would not go back for brunch. I love several cups of coffee with brunch but the coffee is very expensive (Americano) and a small mug.

Went here for my daughters 23rd bday dinner. We all had something different and we all thought each of our dishes was the best! My husband and I shared a fabulous bottle of wine and the service was amazing. If I was going to be super picky and had to find something to be negative about I would say that the seating isn’t the most comfortable in the world but still it’s a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Always great food; wait staff and hostess attentive and accommodating. Noise level can be a bit loud but that depends on the liveliness of other guests. I had the Lemon/blueberry Flapjacks & bacon and oh my gosh in a word - delish. My friend was drooling over it but had the homemade granola & yogurt and also good. The breakfast sandwich looked good too; that was the feature and was thinking I should have had that as it looked wonderful. Again, great food; reasonable prices wonderful staff. Definitely one of my favourite breakfast places.

The menu was not what we were expecting when it was listed as comfort food. I would recommend not bringing children that are fussy eaters. The food was spectacular and service was great.

Amazing!!! Went for dinner here on a Wednesday. Part work meeting but mostly for fun. Everything we ordered was delicious! The broccoli that came with the steak was literally the best broccoli I’ve ever had. Obviously the steak was outstanding as well. Server was attentive but not overly so. Quiet night not too loud to talk. Overall awesome and so glad I went here before I left town.

Canteen has a limited menu with diverse options. We had the char and the fried chicken - both excellent in their own way. The shrimp appetizer also had an interesting mix of flavours and was a pleasant surprise. Well worth our trip in to town.

As always, great friendly and focused service coupled with a recognition that we needed to talk so not too many interruptions. Great food, interesting menu (not too many items, but all well done) and lovely presentation. Always happy to come here and will be back.

Food was fantastic, service prompt and friendly, and chef came out at our request to tell us about preparation of the Brussels sprouts dish. Also loved the deep fried cauliflower. We shared all 5 small plates, the had mains. I had lamb shank which was cooked tender, fall off the bone, and served on a bed of a delicious warm white bean red pepper salad and harissa. Superb. Definitely will be back

I love Canteen, but not the ricotta pancakes. My first time ordering them and they were ok. Quite dense, not fluffy as ricotta usually makes them. However my hubs had the grilled cheese and literally to die for. I’ll stick to huevos canteenos in the future which never disappoints.

Had the chicken and waffles , although they were good the one spread made the waffles get a bit soggy and I feel they would have been better with some syrup.

Food was great but I had reserved for our anniversary and had asked for a secluded table. They sat us in a quiet spot initially and then promptly sat a couple walking in without reservations right next to us (2” between tables) right away despite having empty tables all over the place. When we asked to change tables it was very evident that the waitress was upset with us but I don’t understand why they would seat someone else that close when we had made the request, and received assurances from the other waitress that we would have space, and honestly, when paying for a premium meal I don’t think we should have her frustration visibly directed at us.

I've been here for brunch with 3-4 of my friends, and both times were exceptional experiences. The service is really friendly, and they do what they can to accommodate our needs - for example, 1 friend is vegetarian and they were able to modify the dish to be made without the meat. The decor is stylish, and the glass storefront means that you get natural light during the day. The food both times have been exceptional. The Dutch Baby Pancake is an interesting but surprisingly good mix of flavours, but the Balsamic Braised Short Ribs really blew me away. The price is also very reasonable for what you get! I highly recommend this place.
