We ate brunch outside and it was an absolutely beautiful day! Flies spoiled the ambiance. Got to find a way to control for that because everything else was superb!

Great setting with steel deck over water. Modern large umbrellas provide shade. Inside offered openness also. My grouper was cooked to perfection. Description listed citrus fruits and avocado. It had maybe 8 one inch cubes of watermelon and four individual pieces of orange and four tiny dots of avocado. Steaks were cooked as ordered and chicken fingers kept the kids happy. They were not too busy but the waitress did not check on us very often. Long long wait for the food to arrive. Not rushing to return.

Responded on October 29, 2020

I am sorry to hear about the inattentive service for your visit on Monday, and that the Grouper wasn't as you expected. I would love to 1) get a little more information from you, so that I could follow up with my team in hopes of preventing similar experiences and 2) have the opportunity to provide you with a true canvas experience. I will reach out privately in a moment. Humbly, Jake Kosseff General Manager

First time here and I promise this has been the best brunch place I’ve ever been to. My fiancé and I are from Miami so we’ve been to a couple of other brunch places down south, we recently moved to central Florida and I wanted to take her on a brunch date. This place has the best food options cooked to perfection with great taste. The music was upbeat, a mix of everything from American to Latin. I highly recommend the jalapeño margarita or a mule and their fish is to die for. The lake view was a plus

Went to Canvas to celebrate my mom’s birthday and I was a little disappointed with the service there. I have been to canvas many times before, but the service today was extremely off. Brushing it off this time,because I’m not sure if COVID has anything to do with the poor service. I hope things get better.

It was my son's 23rd birthday dinner with family. I made the reservation online, and put that in my remarks. When we finished our meal, our awesome waiter (Matt) came out with cake and lit candle for him, and champagne for the table! That was the icing on the cake for a great evening and meal!
