Very good food with a nice calm atmosphere. We love to sit on the back patio on the water. I wish the patio was larger, but I guess since it’s on the water there might be mosquitos. Their alternative is a screened in patio. We like to come here and enjoy the sunsets. Price point is a little high for their main dishes but the food is good.

The ambiance was the best! The restaurant faces the west so you can enjoy the sunset. Nice music in the background as well.
Of course their food is very good.

The customer service was excellent. The food was fantastic. The music was a little too loud as we couldn't really talk to each other. Thank you for the great experience over all.

Went for brunch on a Saturday for a friends birthday. No long wait, not over crowded, and we enjoyed bottomless mimosas that were kept full. Service was great, food was delicious, and the view of the water was beautiful. Would go again for sure!

Very creative menu has something to please everyone. The Queso starter was fantastic! Green Goddess salad was wonderful. Our group enjoyed the roast chicken, lobster pasta and sweet tea fried chicken. Save room for the roasted white chocolate panna cotta for dessert! Service was excellent and atmosphere was fun and lively.

Canvas is clearly one of our very favorite places to dine. We have been going there every week for over 3 years. The food, the ambience and the service are second to none. We had a awesome dinner on Friday night and we just went for lunch.

Another AMAZING meal @ Canvas. Food is always so fresh and tasty. We brought friends from our hood who actually had never been to Canvas. They thoroughly enjoyed it, so-much-so that they want to go back soon. What made the experience so much better was our server Dana. SHOUT-OUT to Dana!!!

The food and atmosphere was great. Our server was ok didn’t interact with us much seemed a little shy I believe he might have been somewhat new there. Food came out quick not a long wait. Definitely make reservations for brunch.

The only this good about this place was the view. Food wasn't terrible but when you pay those ridiculous high prices then you deserve the best no? And that definitely wasnt the best. Portion size was minimal, my steak was under cooked. (They did at least take it back and re cooked it instead of giving me a new one) tables are was to small and it gets very crowded in there. I am being very critical but only because when people pay these type of prices to eat at your restaurant they expect the absolute best. If Canvas can handle being the absolute best then maybe its time to being those prices down. It feels like the prices are so high because of there view and where they are located instead of their food and service. Seems like they are just taking advantage of that by the high prices..

Food and drinks were great, especially the mimosas. We sat outside and we waited for a very long time before a server came to even take our drink order. However, the server was very apologetic and we received great service after that.

We were running late and the restaurant easily accommodated us and suggested a later time was available. Food service was fast and fresh. The cauliflower appetizer was amazing as even my young children ate it and like many other kids do not normally like vegetables. Our entrees arrived fresh and hot and we shared them amongst ourselves. They also recognized my wife's birthday and we celebrated together. The restaurant was quite loud which although inconvenient to us showed signs of how popular the destination was. They did run out of some of their dessert options which cut our evening short.
