We stopped in for lunch and are so glad we did! We ordered a lunch salad with a salmon filet, calamari fries and fish tacos. They were flavorful and generously-sized. But the highlight was the service. Everyone was attentive and kind. Jackie was the nicest person and served with knowledge and a smile. We can’t say enough about her! Thank you Canvas for being the highlight of our day! It is important to remember that restaurants have had a difficult time due to COVID. From closures to new procedures and limited capacity, they have endured a lot to keep their employees, run their business and serve their customers, all while trying to be innovative and fresh. It isn’t easy. We’re grateful for their efforts and are so glad they are open!

We hadn’t been to Canvas in a year or so and were excited to celebrate a birthday there. Unfortunately the food quality has slipped. Two meals in our party of six were well below average, including an extremely tough and under seasoned skirt steak, rock hard black beans, and a large mysterious ball of fat in the very bland meatloaf. Our favorite dessert, chocolate cookies with dip, is no longer on the menu, which was very disappointing. I’m not sure we will return.

I very much appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, even though I hate to hear that someone didn't have a great one. We need to hear about these things so that we can address them, and make sure that we don't repeat the same mistakes. Humbly, Jake Kosseff General Manager

I love Canvas! The only issue from my last visit was the lack of social distancing from table to table. I understand that its nice to have a packed restaurant, but given the times, its something that should be considered. Spacing out the tables more even if you need to sacrifice a table or two should happen.

Steven, Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate that everyone has different comfort levels right now, but want you to know that we are following our staff medical team and state and local guidelines for capacity (we are currently seating only 50% of capacity), spacing of tables, sanitation and team screenings policies. I will look into the situation last Sunday. If you ever see something that makes you uncomfortable at Canvas, please bring it to my attention. Jake Kosseff General Manager

I considered the food too expensive and not really fancy. For example I had the Lobster entry, it was mainly dry pasta with sausage paste, that was 85% of the plate. 3 little pieces of lobster that were very tasty. I left almost all the pasta with the sausages. Next time I will ask for a salad, I prefer to eat my seafood with veggies than with dry pasta. Or if I eat pasta, I prefer a small amount of fresh pasta.
Wine was beautiful, house brand Malbec, appetizer and dessert were perfect.
And the waitress!! she was very nice and got everything correct.
