Canteen - Edmonton
Open for Brunch Saturday & Sunday 10:00am- 2:00pm
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.
It was a great meal and a very pleasant evening!
Yummy food and great service!
Went to Canteen for our anniversary. They treated us very special, and the food was great! We enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it for a nice evening out!
This it the best restaurant for a special lovely brunch or dinner. I could not recommend it more.
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.
Went for brunch- phenomenal. Food was extremely well prepared, flavours were great, service was responsive. Will definitely go back again. Loved every element of it.
A group of friends that get together once per month- each time at a restaurant of someone’s choice. Food was great. Exceptional service. Noise level was high making it difficult to visit as a group. We all would recommend Canteen and would come back
Delicious breakfast, we will definitely go back, also was quite reasonably priced with large portion for brunch.
Food was fantastic, wine list is superior and service was top notch! An wonderful evening as always!!
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 really wonderful (as it always is at Canteen!) and our server was friendly, attentive + timely.
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.
This was our first time at Canteen and we really enjoyed our time there. Hope to come back soon.
We were disappointed this time- tho last time was great!!!
All “small plate” choices deep fried, food salty
Great dining. Food was excellent and came quickly. Only downside was there were no child seats so we had to eat fast as our one year old wouldn’t stay still. I realize this may not be a prime place for people with young kids but we went for brunch and it would have been way more enjoyable had there been a booster seat.
Tasty dinner with wonderful dessert to finish it off!
Very, very tasty but seemed short staff (though our waitress was really lovely) and the wait for food was very long. Would go again but would hope for a little quicker service.
As a foodie, I was excited to try Canteen. The servers are spectacular and few in number so be prepared to have an extended stay. The food was unsuccessfully pretentious, oily and a mix of competing flavours. Ambiance promises to be contemporary and chic at a glance, falls short at noisy and conversationally unfriendly. 3 of 4 of us were disappointed and would not return for the food nor the cost.
The food was absolutely delicious (Char) and the service was impeccable. Great experience on my second visit (the first was the same) and I highly recommend Canteen to anyone looking for a great meal in a great atmosphere.
This used to be one of my top three picks for an evening out. This experience was disappointing. The noise level needs to be seriously addressed ... the more tables occupied impacts on the noise level and it is very difficult to hear the conversation at your own table. I find it very difficult to accept that a restaurant of this calibre cannot accommodate a request for a menu item salad with an add on grilled chicken breast. Seriously folks? Time to get in the game! Finally, our meals of the feature appetizer each, a shared salad, and individual entrees with no beverage other than tap water ran us $120 ... pretty pricey, so be forewarned,
Lovely spot, great food! The steak was cooked to perfection and the ricotta appetizer was so flavourful. Wait staff was perfectly attentive.😊
Delicious as always. Great service as well.
Amazing great food and great service!
Savory bread pudding was the best brunch dish I have had at Canteen yet. Hoping this makes it onto the regular menu!
Had the brunch special (savoury bread pudding) and it was very good.
The food is exceptional, service is wonderful and the owner is so friendly.
I just wish they had French press coffee
I arrived for my 10am reservation, and as we were greeted by a host who welcomed us in. Behind was another couple, who was taken care of before us. Their reservation was for 10:15, so they were early, but sat at their table first and offered drinks before our reservation. The bacon was served cold. We had no waitress return to refill water or coffee nor to address the cold bacon. Paid the bill at the first sight of a waitress and headed to Doughnut Party to eat.
Thank you! We had a great time and delicious meal at Canteen!!
Excellent place! Fun, friendly, great for many different occasions.
Menu is small but 4 different entrees were ordered and all 4 were delicious. Very good value compared to similar restraunts.
Came here for the first time for brunch around 12:30. I had the flapjacks and a side of hash browns (a bit of a different take on them) and both were delicious! Great service fast and friendly. Will be coming back.
This place is a gem that has never failed to please. The food has an elevated niche that has always risen to the many occasions that have necessitated it's need.
I've been here three times, twice for brunch and once for dinner. The first two times were overall excellent. However, my recent visit was disappointing when it came to the service. I made a reservation for noon I arrived at 12:02pm and was told by the co-owner they were "working on a table", the rest of my group arrived and we were left waiting at the front for 10-15 min until a server asked if we had been helped. I explained that I had a reservation for noon and was told that a table wasn't ready. That server said "oh, there's a definitely a table for you" and immediately moved two tables together and had us seated. Strange situation, especially since the low quality of service came from the co-owner. High rating for the food because it's always FANTASTIC.
Food was excellent, the restaurant was very lively, and our table was nice near the windows. Our server seemed slightly put off by simple questions. When ordering coffee, she could have informed us they only did espresso based drinks (which I can didn't know), instead of just answering "Americano?" Also, I needed to order my eggs cooked all the way through, as I'm pregnant, and she reacted very confused, as though she had never been asked such a thing. Overall, we had a great time, but felt we were inconveniencing our server with simple menu related questions.
The waitress was a bit cold and the food is not what I’ve come to expect from Canteen; just an off day, I guess.
Everything was fabulous. Can’t wait to go back again.
