LOVE this restaurant! It has such a cool vibe and the food is really good! They have seasonal drinks and the atmosphere is so relaxing and chill. Definitely great for a celebration, date night, or out with friends. I would recommended the Yuca Fries and the Habanero Wings from the appetizer. The Sweet Tea Chicken Sandwich is amazing as well! If you love to take pictures, this place has plenty indoor and outdoor great picture spots AND it’s right on the water! A must try in Lake Nona for sure!

A first time visit and a birthday celebration. Space was made to accommodate our group with attention to social distancing as well. Service was spot on, attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The kitchen was an example of unity pushing orders on a fairly busy Friday night. From apps to mains, the food was spot on!

Extra effort was given to make the birthday even more special thanks to the GM.

With SO many of the nicer places in the Orlando being complacent with being mediocre, it was a true pleasure to experience a place like Canvas who seems to me taking the extra steps to excel in these tough times.

I WILL be back!!!

We've been to Canvas three different occasions this past month because of their top tier COVID protocols. The expanded outdoor dining is what makes the whole experience sublime on the dock of the small lake.

We went for my husbands birthday. They asked if we had a special occasion when the reservation was made. Though they didn’t acknowledge it at all. The service wasn’t the best. My silverware was dirty. They never brought me a replacement. Waited for a while for it since no servers were around. The last and worse thing that made us decide to never go back again was my husbands dinner. He ordered snapper which still had the guts and everything inside. The fish was not properly cleaned. The manager handled it well and was very professional and apologetic. For the price, and experience we won’t be coming back

Had a most pleasant experience during Brunch at The canvas. The server was very attentive, and made marvelous suggestions as to what were the best values. loved the wine list, and the Mimosas. Will definitely be returning for another great experience.

Disappointing experience.

Greeters were lifeless. 15 minutes to get drinks. 50 minutes from ordering to service. All during slow mid-afternoon.

My wife’s entree was served last, and late.

Three of four entrees had “hot” food that arrived cold.

Server was poorly trained.

Vegetables had 3x the needed salt.

“Manager” and chef enjoyed their dinner in a conspicuous location. Sad they don’t know better.

Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. Only thing was when we first got there for 5:30 reservation they asked if we were ok with the front room. Stool seating only, it was completely empty, the main dining area was not full and it just really felt like a poor “second”. It is overflow area at best. Why even offer it? We said we’d prefer not to sit there and we were seated in a better spot. Was awkward and just would suggest not even offering it to a party of two with reservations.
Our server, Norris was fabulous, and we were soon on to a vey pleasant date night.
