About Downtown Kitchen

Welcome to the Downtown Kitchen. We have one goal in mind when we open our doors every day - "To do whatever it takes to create the best dining experience possible.' That means buying certified Angus beef, Ashley Farms chicken, New Zealand Spring lamb, dayboat fish and fresh local produce. We change our menus daily according to market and season availability. Our style of cooking is defined as simplicity at its best. We built the restaurant to elevate the guests' level of comfort. The bar, tables, and booths were custom-made by a local wood worker. And we searched the nation for unique works of Art to deck our walls. Music of Blues and Rock greats fill the air. Service is as important as the food. Our staff is sincere, knowledgeable and friendly. They hustle to deliver the best service around, yet take the time to remember your name and how you like your drink.

Hadn't been in awhile and sorely missed it. It was still as excellent as always!! You can't go wrong with the hanger steak, but wish they'd bring back the awesome seared tuna on seaweed.

Family get together. Food was great. The waitress handling our table was exceptional, (attentive) and we had small children which she was great interacting with them.
Several appetizer specials were worth having, (artichoke dip & sweet potato chips).
All in all would recommend this as a must visit when in Canton.

3 sisters celebrating kid sisters 50th birthday. We had a great time! Great food and ambience. A bit noisy but we might have contributed to the late night noise a bit😉.

A great place to meet friends for dinner, lively place and good food. Too noisy and tight seating for an intimate date. Average pricing for the area but taste was above average. Service was amazing, everyone was upbeat and friendly. We will go back.

Had another great experience at Downtown Kitchen. Our meals were outstanding (as always). My Salmon was spectacular, could not have been prepared better. And my wife's steak was perfect, thick, medium, great sauce, perfect portion size. I do not normally brag about salads but it was super as well. Thanks again - see you real soon.

Ate there Friday evening to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent, starting with the appetizers, and the entrees were outstanding as usual. I had the salmon, and its consistently one of the best salmon dishes in any restaurant around here. Service was excellent, manager was very nice and stopped by, just a great dining experience overall, highly recommend.

This was the nicest dinner my husband and I have enjoyed in a while, even though we often eat at nice restaurants. The service was perfect. Not too much, not too little, just right with sincere attention to detail. The appetizer, drinks and meal were all above and beyond good! Very nice experience.

We went here for an anniversary dinner, wanting to "go local". Though the service was excellent, the food and ambiance and value did not live up to expectations.

The calamari was quite heavily battered, and too salty for my taste. The salad was fine, and the scallops were as well. My husband's steak was tasty, as was his potato. No bread was offered.

But the primary problem was the noise level. It was the loudest "upscale" restaurant I have experienced. OK for young, rollicking folk, but certainly not a place for a quiet, special me

Our son in law recommended the Downtown Kitchen to us and said we would really enjoy it. We are big fans of Goin' Coastal so decided to try it out. Absolutely will be back. The food and atmosphere was great. We went with another couple and had a wonderful time. The entrees we enjoyed we hanger steak, pork tenderloin and a special that was beef medalions and shrimp. We all really enjoyed our dinners. If there were any complaints it would be the green beans we so tough I couldn't cut them with a fork, but everything else was amazing! Will definitely be back. We also enjoyed the staff, they are very knowledgeable and attentive without being "in the way". Thank you for a great dining experience.

We had a reservation and were seated right after we checked in. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We received enough attention but not overly done. The food was cooked to our liking, and we all seemed happy with our entrees which included mushroom ravioli, short rib, yellow fin tuna and the salmon. The menu selection is a bit limited. The seasonal vegetable was kale, not my favorite, but 2 people from our group ordered it and ate it all. We did share a piece of peanut butter pie for dessert which was excellent. We will definitely go back.
