Good was very good but the lack of table service was disappointing. Not what we expected from precovid dining.

We had always been pleased with Canyons. However, lunch on a Saturday was disappointing. The menu was very limited, we had to order at the bar, and no one came by to refill drinks or check if we needed anything. That would be fine and expected at In-N-Out, but not somewhere that charged $20 for a burger. Other restaurants have come back strong post-Covid, but Canyons appears to still be struggling with staffing, service, and menu.

Three of us ordered sandwiches two of which were rubens which were prepared without dressing or sauerkraut. Unbelievably dry. The other sandwich came without any mayo.
It was so unacceptable but we didn't complain and probably wouldn't come back for lunch in near future.

My daughter ordered a waffle and it was just the one from Costco...very disappointing.
The other food that we ordered were just ok. They also asked if we are celebrating something and we were, brought my niece there for her bday but nothing really special

This was a wonderful place for three longtime friends to go to enjoy the beautiful scenery on the deck~ Servers delightful. We all want to return next month. With Covid at bay, and when this Restaurant returns to normal, it will be the best of places to enjoy!

The food was excellent. My family had the Brioche french toast, the chilaquiles, the short stack, and the scramble. With the bottomless mimosas, my son was given a whole bottle of champagne to mix with the orange juice - a great value for $20.
The service was friendly and timely.
The ambiance was interesting in that some tables had tables clothes and some didn’t. The view is special and we enjoyed it, even on a cloudy day.

I might have enjoyed it better if the weather had been better,so as to be able to sit outside. No one there also did not add to the place. I guess I expected more.

Due to Covid restrictions, there was no full service. We had to order at the bar, and the food was brought out to us. That said, everyone was courteous and the food came fairly quickly. The crunchy chicken sandwich with house chips was a particularly good choice, very delicious.

I am not used to having table service like before. 👎 I hope you bring it back. A bit embarrassed after inviting friends for lunch. The view is great but ambiance has gone down.

We've been a frequent patron of the Canyons at the Crossings. They did very well in adjusting to the past year and Covid...... however, can hardly wait till it is open 100%....
It is a marvelous place to eat and a fantastic view.

Canyons at the Crossings is a wonderful place to dine! The atmosphere is very welcoming and it was the perfect location to celebrate Easter Brunch on the patio with a beautiful view! The ambience was delightful and the wait staff was outstanding. The brunch offered something appealing for all and the final treat of yummy, decorated Easter cookies was a big hit! Great time enjoyed by all - highly recommend!

A great location for good service and delicious food. While an 'ocean view' is advertised, we could not see the ocean, no matter how we looked. This place could easily become a weekly, or possibly daily, favorite spot!

The Canyons is actually one in of my favorite places due
to quality of food and ambiance. However, this last visit the service was below expectations. Ordering was at the bar area. I had a small child with me. So, it was inconvenient. In addition, I requested a refill on my drink of which it never arrived. Overall the food was good. The service was below par.

It's time for table service. It's very inconvenient to order in the bar and then carry your drinks to the table.

It was very nice. It would have been much better if they had waiters that would take your order and deliver your food. They had 1 person at the bar to take your order and close out your bill. I waited 10 minutes to place my drink order.
