The service was very good. The food and drink was very good except we found the seasoning in the Crobster Roll was a bit overwhelming and took overpowered the seafood .
Je m'attendais à une vraie sauce hollandaise. Celle-ci était fade, pâle, luisante, sans intérêt. J'en fais de la meilleure à la maison. Il était écrit bacon de dos mais j'ai reçu des tranches de jambon forêt noire. J'aurais aimé le savoir d'avance. J'aurais choisi autre chose. Par contre, toutes mes visites précédentes ont été couronnées de succès. C'était la première et dernière fois que je prends le menu « brunch ». J'y retournerai mais on ne m'y reprendra plus avec les oeufs bénédictines.
Friendly wait staff and fast service. Food was amazing, seasonal and creative as always.
Would have been 5 across but I chose to sit on patio. Wrong table. In sun and much traffic noise. Service & food top notch.
Great food and service. Nice to support local restaurants during these difficult times.
The falafah (sp?) was the one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
We appreciated the fewer tables which meant a quieter atmosphere.
We'll be back.
We were very impressed with the delicious food, high quality ingredients, and creativity from the kitchen. The decor was fresh and creative, and the service was lovely. Would definitely go again and absolutely recommend. Gluten free options available!
The food was delicious, the service was great, as our server Mark was friendly and funny. We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we were certainly happy with our overall experience.
Everything tasted great and the service was fantastic. I had the mussels and frites which I always get when I go to the Canteen. I really enjoyed the green coconut curry sauce of the mussels. My only disappointment was that it came with a biscuit and not focaccia. Personally I am not a biscuit fan and would prefer the focaccia as it said in the menu. Otherwise everything was really good.
Went for our 36th anniversary and we were not disappointed. Meal was excellent and the staff was great.
Service was great and the food was even better! Tried their special as well as a number of the mains. Flavours were so good and all the seafood was so fresh!
This was our first time out since restaurants have reopened and the Canteen did not disappoint. The food was amazing- I'm still thinking about the food four days later! The service was also excellent. They have an excellent social distancing set up.
Some elements of the meal were really great - daily soup (tomato others were lacklustre - feature sandwich, other elements of the noodle bowl and the dessert. Great service, nice atmosphere. Will give it another try and hope for better food choices next time.
Food off the menu was fantastic. The daily sandwich could have been better. Save room for the carrot cake. Yum!
Staff and service were fantastic.
Great evening out, friendly staff, clean and well laid out. Food was amazing - lots of great choices on the menu
Fresh, local, and delicious. I’ve been dreaming about the snow crab ravioli!
The Canteen is our favourite place to dine!! The menu is FANTASTIC but, if they have a special, always order it! We had the handmade floral pasta with mushrooms...absolutely amazing.
The food was amazing. It was my first trip there but definitely not my last. Service was great and professional. Great experience.
Excellent service all around. Waitress was very professional and the kitchen was accommodating when it came to substituting a few menu items.
Amazing: service, food, Covid-precautions, wonderful experience, as always. Thrilled we have this dining option in our neighbourhood!
We found the food different and not something we were expecting. Although my mom enjoyed the scallop risotto. Did not find ravioli to have a lot of flavour. Waitress was superb!
Absolutely perfect food! I have never had a bad meal here. Always delicious.
Wonderful atmosphere with great food and our server was helpful and attentive. My favourite lunch time restaurant on either side of the harbour. Haven't tried dinner there yet.
Excellent food and drink, served by competent, friendly professional staff. The atmosphere was also beautiful. We had savoury watermelon salad opener, steak and lobster main, followed by creme brûlée. Wow!
Phenomenal as usual. I had the falafel bowl. The pickled turnip and zucchini were outstanding! Can’t wait to go back.
We would definitely recommend dinner at the Canteen. The service, the food and the decor were excellent. The food was creative, delicious and well presented. Full points to the Canteen for their charitable efforts as well.
Love this place, we had a great time. Thanks to Kim for making our night awesome!!!
