The place is located in a great location however the staff and food leave something to be desired. Their wait staff is terrible and do not acknowledge you or help you. It's pulling teeth to get a drink refill. The food was okay but very rushed and not a quality brunch.

Food was very good, nice view and a good singer. The service very poor. We asked 2 times for the appetizer, server brought it after the main course. We wait a long time for the server to pick up the payment. He never came to ask us if everything was ok or if we need something else.

This was a holiday lunch specifically for our legal team and it was a great success. The dining room was very spacious, clean and not too noisy. There was chatter, but it was at an acceptable level. The service was very professional and friendly. I don't have enough characters left to describe how amazing the food was. A great selection, very healthy, perfectly prepared. There were seven different selections at our table and they all were beautifully prepared. This is one of my new favorite places to go for a nice dinner or late lunch. Thank you!

My colleagues and I went for a business lunch on a Friday afternoon and the place was not crowded at all as we sat by the very large window overlooking the golf course. The wait staff was attentive for a party of (6) and we intended for our lunch to be a slow and relaxing experience starting with drinks, appetizers, salads and main course. One of us even had enough room for the chocolate lava cake which was delicious. The menu had plenty to choose from and all of us were very pleased with the meal. I would recommend the Canyons for any lunch time situation and look forward to returning soon.

Canyons Restaurant at The Crossings never disappoints. As always, the service was fast and good, the food was delicious, and the noise was tolerable. My one regret is that there always seems to be a stiff breeze blowing and we can't sit outside on the patio.

We have never been disappointed with Brunch at the Crossings. This visit was no exception. Alexis greeted us warmly and welcomed us back. Lisa was our waitress and she is always pleasant, attentive and very competent.

The food was delicious. Our omelets were cooked to perfection, the beef was flavorful. Kudos to the new chef for mixing things up. Never eliminate the delicious salmon, however!

If I had one wish it would be for bloody Mary's to be offered along with the Mimosa's.

I met a friend there to celebrate her birthday. We both ordered the cobb salad which I have had in the past and which was excellent. This time, however, we were both disappointed. There was no avocado on the salad and there were only about 10 small pieces of chicken on it. SOOOO much lettuce compared to the toppings. We were never given a basket of bread and butter, we had to ask three times to get our water glasses refilled and it took forever to settle the check. This has been one of our favorite places to take clients to lunch as the service is normally quite responsive and the food excellent; however, on this day, the salad was quite skimpy and neither of us felt "stuffed" after cleaning our plates. Nothing was done for my friend's birthday even though I had mentioned to the waiter that we were celebrating her birthday. Hoping this was just an off day but what a disappointment.

Brunch with friends was delightful. The service was excellent. The food was enjoyable and well prepared with an excellent selection, including a fabulous omelette station. We relaxed undisturbed for three hours, never with an empty glass, until we left. I would heartily recommend the Canyons Restaurant to anyone looking for a comfortable spot to enjoy a delightful meal with friends.

I made three phone calls to Kevin phone with no response. Turns out he was on vacation and did not change his message. I found navigating your phone connections frustrating!

I believe our waitresses' name was Lucy. She was very sweet but took a long time to take our order and then basically disappeared after meal was served. I had to grab another waiter to get a second cup of coffee (cup was also cracked) and mustard for my hamburger, which by then was half eaten and mostly everyone was finished with their meal.

There were 10 people in our party. Although the ambiance was wonderful, I do not think I would make reservations at Canyons again.

Great place to go with friends, especially those with whom you'd like to chat. Large dining area, tables not on top of each other. The view is spectacular. There is outside seating, but there always seems to be a significant breeze, making it too chilly to sit outside (even on 80-degree days!). Our waitress, Lisa, was quite charming. She knew the menu well, and was able to help us make our lunch choices. The restaurant isn't stingy: Two of us went away with enough leftovers to cover another meal at home, a definite plus. The older we get, the less appetizing cooking for ourselves becomes....

calamari was fried to long and was dry and also tepid. They change it for chicken tortilla soup that had a watery broth and tasteless shreded chicken. One person had poke which was good. The desert was good---lava chocolate cake +ice cream The waitress explained that they were changing chef and so menue was about to be changed. hope it's better because it's a pretty place.

We placed a reservation online through Open Table. After receiving conformation that the reservation was available, we thought our plans were solid for us and our out of town friends. Upon arriving for our confirmed reservation, we discovered that a wedding had booked out the entire restaurant for the day. Imagine our disbelief when we found out that the reservation and our plans got foiled. We had to look at two different restaurants in the area before something was available. Plus we ended up having to call our friends, who we haven't seen in years, and tell them we didn't have reservations. We frantically had to figure out a place to eat for 8 people. Very disappointed that this place wasn't open and that they didn't report to Open Table that it was closed for a wedding.

p.s. I couldn't submit this review without giving them a one star rating. I tried submitting it without any stars but it wouldn't let me proceed to write this review.

Closed the dining room for a wedding but for some reason took our reservation anyway did not contact us to tell us. We get there for a birthday brunch, no one around to help us. We asked the bartender for help, she could not help and was annoyed that she even had to speak to us, somehow we were inconveniencing her. Very rude woman. In any case don't ever go there for a meal they don't care about device .

Attended an evening wedding in May, and enjoyed the venue so much, so brought a friend to lunch celebrating her birthday. Everything was lovely. My only comment with the trio tacos, as delicious as the mahi and steak were, the pork was overcooked. Will definitely return to such a special place.

This is the 3rd year we've dined for mothers day brunch. 1st year was acceptable. 2nd yr indifferent. This year service was ok. Food quality took a nose dive. The prime rib was SO chewy (it wasnt like that in previous years) . No one in the party could eat it. Food quality and taste NEED alot of attention and improvement!
