Food was tasty. Waiter was friendly but not too attentive. Saturday night xmas party was happening in our section which made it very difficult to converse across the table. We would go back but will definitly ask for brighter, less noisy section.

A last minute trip to the city to enjoy the Christmas Market and a nice dinner. Both the market and Canyon Creek didn't disappoint. Exceptional food and drinks with very good service. Will definitely be back again!

Arrived for the reservation early. Staff was kind enough to accommodate and sat us in the bar. Our server who has served us in the past was there again. Alejandro always provides great service. We opted to stay in the par since there'd be closing soon. Best place for a late night meal. Only issue is that they didn't check me in on OpenTable properly.

I’ve been a customer here for many years. It was always a go to place for us. Sadly over the years its menu has declined and the quality and presentation of its food has worsened. The last two visits have been disappointments and I doubt we will return.

On a better note- our server in the bar before dinner was delightful.

A shame that a really good restaurant has declined so badly.

parking is an issue and i am not sure if they will validate any parking. there is a parking lot next to the restaurant and it was extremely expensive, $30 flat rate for the evening. so before you go if you are driving ask about validation - there is no street parking on Front street after 3pm.

Saw good reviews for Canyon Creek so decided to give it a try. I wanted a change from the Keg which I typically enjoy. We were 4 people. We ordered the bacon avocado tomato salad as a starter and while the price was only 7.95 we received what amounted to 4 paper thin slices of avocado, 4 cherry tomatoes cut in half and a few thin slices of red onion. Two forkfuls and it was gone. For mains, we all ordered sirloins and my wife ordered filet mignon. The steaks were cooked as ordered but her steak was chewy and lacking in flavor. I find that this restaurant cuts back on quality or quantity to keep prices somewhat reasonable.

The last two times that I’ve been to the Canyon Creek on Front Street, Toronto, it’s been mediocre and the noise levels are so high that it’s difficult to have a conversation with the person sitting across from you. I ordered the salmon and it was so overcooked that I couldn’t eat it. The server never came back to the table to ask if we wanted more drinks, or to ask how the meal was. I wouldn’t recommend this location and I definitely won’t be back again.

The service was terrible but our server was very good. My daughter in law had the Prix fixed meal which was the Steak & Lobster. When the dinner came the food was cold and the Lobster was a pile of mush. It took so long to get our dinner and we had something planned after that so we had to rush.

As usual, the meal at Canyon Creek is good. However, one of the 3 of us had to get to the NHL headquarters by 6:45 pm because he is involved in reviewing the scores for all the NHL games that evening. I did inform our server of especially his time constraint. We waited a long time for our meal, and despite our reservation for 5 pm, our food only arrived close to 6:30, which didn't give my friend much time to make it to the hockey games to set up his review not to mention enjoy eating a more leisurely meal. Tables of guests around us who arrived later than us were served before us and a couple of them actually had finished everything before we even received our food. I had to remind our server at least 2 times of our time constraint, but despite imminent promises of the arrival of our meals, this really didn't happen.
I was told by the server that his hands are tied since he has to wait upon the meals from the kitchen. So don't know where the ultimate problem was.
I did tell my friends that the service tends to be slow even before ordering based on past experiences. Compensation was made with the appetizers we ordered. It was one of my friend's (the one who had to get to the game) first time at Canyon Creek and I was embarrassed because of the time it took for his food to arrive. First impressions are important.
I will still go to Canyon Creek because it is one of my favourite restaurants, but the service can be improved.
