Canal Bistro - Mediterranean Grille
George says. "It's been our dream to open our own place, to be creative with cuisine, and to have a family business that our sons can be a part of."
The Canal Bistro is that dream. "It's like you've come to one of our parties -- we've basically just moved our kitchen from home to here," they say. "We put the grill in the dining room because we want people to know that we are using top quality ingredients, and that freshness is our goal, so everything is done right in front of you."
So eat up, relax, be happy. You're eating in a dream come true!

Wonderful atmosphere and wonderful food. A true gem in Broad Ripple!
The best lebanese/mediterrean food in Indy and they have great Pommegrantine martinis!
Made reservation for my wife and I to celebrate Valentine's day. We do love greek/mediterranean food so we anticipated a good experience for our first visit. Definitely did not disappoint. Everything was perfect...food, service and ambiance was outstanding. Just wish the weather was warmer so as to enjoy being outside but we'll be back!
Great food. Awesome beverage and wine selection. Definitely a great date night.
Delicious. Great service and hope we can visit again soon
So glad I decided to try their weekend breakfast options. First off, $5 bloody Mary's or mimosas-cant beat that! We went at 10am Sunday and it was so quiet as there weren't many other customers there. However closer to 11, it started to fill up. The food was delish! Hubby had the Fools Breakfast with eggs and it was amazing! You have to appreciate a strong lemon flavor and Fava beans though. I had the lamb frittata. We could have easily shared the frittata. Their warm pita bread was perfect to sop up the Fools breakfast and the little bit of leftover Frittata. Highly recommend for a weekend brunch! Can't wait to go again.
Great service and amazing food!
truly the best Mediterranean/middle eastern food I have ever had in Indy - everything was delicious. The spanakopita was crispy, the kabobs were perfectly seasoned and cooked, the gyro was fantastic. Baklava was a nice portion and lovely treat. Leftovers were great the next day. Worth the drive and I am already looking forward to going back.
The food was not good at all
Great food, good service. Appetizers were amazing. Did a great job with covid requirements, wait staff were attentive but not intrusive and did great job describing food and making suggestions where needed. We had a really nice dinner and tried almost every appetizer. The cheese was fantastic but there were none that weren’t good! We sat inside by the window (in Nov) which was pretty but a little cold, but the restaurant itself was beautiful and if I lived nearby it would be a local neighborhood favorite.
Very delicious food with excellent service .
As usual, good food and good service
This place is one of the old establishments in the Broad Ripple area that has survived the passing of time, but it's due to their service, the quality of their food and particularly their beautiful location along de canal. Food is very well presented and it's plentiful.
Love it here! Great service! Great food! Cute Lovely space! One of our favorites in Broad Ripple.
Our server was awesome as well as the owner who moved us into the sunshine on Sunday afternoon!
Love their Greek Food. Very nice selection of entrees. I think they serve the best calamari in town. Save some room for dessert and Greek Coffee.
Food was great
Lamb kabobs very tender
Food and atmosphere were very good. Only complaint was being very rushed. Entrees arrived less than five minutes after appetizers.
Great food! Great service! Lovely atmosphere! We loved the food and it was even still great the next day!
Wonderful experience. We cannot wait to go back and try something else. The sizzling olives were great and I lived my feta grilled cheese with feta garlic fries! It’s nice that they have their own parking lot. I do wish they had shades on the windows because as the sun was setting it was blinding us but overall wonderful experience.
Drinks and appetizers were very good. My chicken kabob was a little over cooked, but not to the point that I wouldn’t eat it. Overall it was a very nice meal. We will return.
Great experience! Haven’t been there for a while but will definitely come back!
We had a wonderful New Year’s eve dinner, the canal bistro never disappoints always has amazing food and service even on the busiest of days and holidays. We often choose this restaurant for holidays because they never disappoint!
This is one of our favorite spots, but we hadn't been in a while until our recent double date there. They have made parking easier than in the past, and we had made a reservation, so dinner was completely hassle-free. Food is always good, and the wine suggestion was excellent. Portions are always big enough for a great lunch the day after, so my lamb kabob was enjoyed twice.
Great atmosphere. big portions. Good service.
My husband is Lebanese and we LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!!! Food and ambiance as well as great staff keep us coming back. We live 2 hours west in Illinois and still make the trip a few times a year. Great place and highly recommend it!!!
Always great food. Good drinks and timely service. The servers were friendly, efficient, and helpful.
Our family gathered to celebrate the holiday season and were very pleased with the quality and quantity of selections offered. Very well priced and very, very clean. Will return soon.
Wonderful service and experience. We will definitely return.
Lovely meal, great service and extremely friendly. The food was wonderful! Very fresh and quick to be served. I highly recomne
Delicious food, large portions, great service!
The food is simply not as good as it used to be - the eggplants were burned and the meat tough
Amazing hidden gem! Reservations are definitely needed as the word is out about this place. Everything was exceptional and I can not wait to return! Tried the baba ganoush, saganaki and gyro platter and all were truly abundant and delicious.
This is a family favorite. Food is always fresh and delicious. A good variety of vegetarian, GF and meat options. The service is excellent as well.
Served s a great meal. Staff was very helpful with getting my elderly father in and out of the restaurant.
Love that place! Excellent food and the staff is always responsive and friendly.
Canal Bistro is just a cozy environment restaurant. One of our favorites. Menu has a wide range of vegetarian as well as non vegetarian dishes. Great goat cheese bruschetta, amazing pita bread. They have a good amount of cocktail/special drink choices. If it’s summer time get outside seating and enjoy the canal and the commotion.
Lovely patio setting. Attentive and solid service. Delicious food. My cocktail was a little weak and heavily garnished. The food presentation could use some work. Overall lovely experience.
Wanted to make a nice impression on lady I had recently met. Food was great and to be surpassed by the friendly and attentative staff.
Great food and services as always. One of our favorites!
