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.

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

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.

From the moment we walked in we were greeted amediatley, that to me is important. All staff was very nice, food came out in good time, wine selection was great and the food was amazing if you like seafood and meat then you have to go. Portion sizes were a very good size. We had the scallops to start and entrees were the beef short rib and the ribs. We will definitely be back!!!

In general I enjoyed my experience at Canteen. The food was lovely and not over the top expensive. The serving sizes were good and there were no TVs (yay!). However, I did find the service to be lacking. The appetizer came out in about 45 min which would have been fine, had our server been around to refill our drinks (which sat empty for 30 min). Dinner arrived about 40 minutes after the appetizers. I wasn’t in a rush to eat but this seemed to be a bit much, especially with empty drinks in front of us.

I’m not really sure where the hold up was, but it definitely could have been handled better.

Not too many vegetarian dish options. Expected the chicken and waffles to be better. Although the quantity is generous, I found them quite bland and mostly batter not a lot of chicken. Beet salad was good. A basket of bread to start would have been nice. Experience was just ok.

We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. The ambiance of the room is lovely. The food was very tasty and they had some unique selections on the menu. The wine selection by the glass, although only 3 choices, we tried 2 and they were both delicious! Staff were very friendly and provided just the right amount of attention.

After we were seated, it took at least 10 mins before anyone came to us with water or menus. I ordered the prosecco drink and my boyfriend had the Marty (beer with sweet bacon). My drink arrived first. It took about another 5 mins before my boyfriend got his drink. It would've been nice to have the drinks arrive at the same time as I was waiting to make a toast. I also would've appreciated the server to at least inform us that she was waiting for the bacon from the kitchen (I'm guessing this was the reason for the delay) rather than wonder if they forgot about the beer. At least the food came out quickly. The food was good but I was expecting more based on the reviews I read and the price point. I really do appreciate that they will take brunch reservations and they serve ace coffee. The service was OK - Nothing spectacular. I might come back to try dinner, but I'll go somewhere else for brunch considering there are so many options for brunch.

This is a go-to brunch spot for me. Recently tried the crispy pork belly (with polenta, Brussels sprouts and caramelized onions) and everything was perfect. Probably the best dish I've tried there. Lemon ricotta pancakes are also a great option... would recommend asking for a bit more syrup.

My wife and I went to this restaurant because we were curious to find out how different it is from Red Oxx Inn. Our appetizer was Chilli Grilled Prawns and it was excellent. Main course was short ribs for me and my wife had BBQ pork ribs. Presentation of both dishes was very good and they tasted very good as well. What was rather dissapointing was the initial presentation of the $50 red wine we ordered. The wine was much too cold, almost felt like it came from the fridge and it took 40 minutes for it to open up and be flavourfull!
The reason for the low score on ambiance, is the fact that the restaurant is very noisy and our table for two was positioned in a way that I was looking into the kitchen and people going to washrooms. Perhaps reorganization of chairs is in order. The washrooms were very nice and clean.

This was our first time to dine with friends at Canteen. The menu was limited, but everything offered was a decent size portion and very tasty.
The items on the menu were varied with option for carnivores and herbivores.
Food for 4 with wine was 250.00
