4 of us came in for brunch
Food was incredible but we had to yell to hear each other
Parking can also be a challenge but it’s worth it
Really enjoyed the new menu.
Great food and amazing host and service!
Still on of my favourite places to go when heading downtown. The food is amazing, filling and worth the wait. My husband and I always get the corn fritters appetizers as well as split a meal based on the amount of food.
Good food. Decent service. Loud. Needs something soft on the walls. In the reservation mentioned coming for a birthday but it wasn’t acknowledged
Very energetic - just a bit too load for brunch with my mom. Great food.
Maybe not for serious coffee drinkers as they only serve Americano / espresso... gets expensive after the 2nd or 3rd cup!
Went to Canteen most recently for our anniversary dinner. The service was excellent and the food was impeccable! We arrived early for our reservation but they managed to find us a table anyway.
Absolutely recommended for an special occasion dinner!
So, so. A good attempt at making interesting food with a "nouveax" touch but didn't quite make it. Tough, unflaorval beef, dry lamb shank.
The items on the menu are refreshingly different. My friend and I absolutely adored our meals. We had a reservation and the hostess acknowledged us right away. But there wasn't any communication from her until she took us in 15 minutes later. This WAS at the appointed time. We arrived early. There is no room to wait. We were standing right in front of the door and were constantly in the way of patrons coming and going. The restaurant was very loud. My friend and I could barely hear each other. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable. But it took forever for both our drinks and our bill to arrive. All in all - great food but lacking in ambiance and quality of service.
We're always pleased with the food and the service is always great.
Although the food was good the service was exceptionally slow but there was only one person serving and also acting as hostess. She remained very pleasant all evening.
Always a pleasure dining here. Menu offers great variety and it is always on point. I live in the neighbourhood and frequent this great establishment a few times a year. Keep up the great work.
Amazing in all aspects!
Went for brunch . Everyone’s food was great. Friendly and professional staff.
The portions have become ridiculously tiny. I'm not surprised the restaurant was empty. I don't mind paying higher prices but when you get an amuse bouche for the price of an entrée that's disappointing. never going back
The service was friendly and efficient and we all enjoyed the food. Plan to go back for happy hour and try a few more of the small plates and appetiZers
Canteen provided a wonderful atmosphere for our table of eight as we had an adult only evening (rare occurrence) to celebrate Christmas. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful and overall we had a great time. I would highly recommend it for anyone, especially if you're willing to go a little out of the box.
I've heard great things about this restaurant, and I can see why. Our food was original but not to the point of being obscure, full of really great flavours, and the portion size was also more than ample. Unfortunately the restaurant suddenly filled quickly which made it VERY noisy, shattered the otherwise relaxed and enjoyable brunch we were having, and I think this sudden influx also threw the servers because we waited 10 minutes for our bill (despite several servers walking by our table several times), and ended up having to ask for it anyway. I would definitely go back but I would select a less popular time as I think that would minimize the noise a lot and resolve waiting at the end for the bill, too.
Food was good but not spectacular for the price. Menu selection was limited.
