    This restaurant and hotel are extremely dated and in rough shape. The food we had was delicious but we waited forever for service and for our meal. The bill we received was for another tables meal. I wouldn’t go back.

    Was at the Cannery for my moms 80th birthday after a Shaw Festival performance. We walked the gardens before dinner which were so beautiful. Loved the history and atmosphere in the restaurant & had a great waitress I just wish I remembered her name. She was lovely and funny and just the best. The food was outstanding and my mom enjoyed her birthday outing topped off with great desert too. Thank you will be back again.

    I was slightly disappointed in my overall experience. I sent my salmon back as the quinoa it was meant to be laying on was mush- completely. Having recently eaten at a high end restaurant downtown Toronto, the overall pricing for the delivered food is out of line. I did appreciate the special dessert for my husband - thank you - but cannot say I would eat at this restaurant again. A pot of water and a few Lemon wedges - $10? After playing the inflated prices for appetizer and entree, this charge is ridiculous. Loud couples beside us almost ruined our time - their conversation was loud enough to hear every single word😔our server was professional and pleasant - her tip reflected her service, nothing else.

    It was a nice place and food was good. They did not have beer on the menu and eventually the waitress brought one recommending it. Wine came after we had our meal which I did not like though not long after. Was a nice place .

    A very nice place for a relaxing dinner. Friendly staff that pay attention to details. Quality of the food was excellent One draw back is that the exact location, of the restaurant was not given when booking on open table, ie, restaurant is in the Pillar and Post Hotel m Otherwise a very wonderful restaurant.

    Quiet, charming and ambient atmosphere. We enjoyed our meals but wished there were a few more options on the menu. My husband was disappointed to see the only red meat option for dinner was prime rib. The short ribs were excellent and so was the bread and butter. We had a very nice waitress and we really enjoyed our experience!

    Did not disappoint on any front. Went for our anniversary dinner. Food was outstanding. Couldn’t decide between prime rib and short rib so we got both to share and they were perfect. Service also amazing. Be sure to check it out on your next visit and grab a drink in the gardens first. Beautiful stroll.

    The presentation of the dish was very similar to plate served at home. The prime rib was a large portion that overwhelmed the plate, covering the assorted vegetables, The Yorkshire pudding was very hard and chewy. There was a baked potato that had not been cut. The overall quality and dining experience I would only rate as good

    Waiter was attentive and nice. Restaurant decor is stuck in a time warp. Had prime rib. Yorkshire pudding was hard and overcooked and the jus was burnt. $500 meal. Not worth the drive.

    We have had breakfast a number of times at Cannery. We were in NOTL for a quick weekend getaway and dinner was included as we landed on a package weekend. We have skipped this option before at Prince of Wales but decided to “eat in”. The food was fabulous and David our waiter was funny, professional and just really added ro an already great weekend. Breakfast or dinner you can’t miss with the Cannery.

We were there for my boyfriend's birthday and they exceeded all of our expectations. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family.

    First post COVID trip back and as always we were not disappointed! We had the prime rib and short ribs. Both were excellent ... shirt ribs best we had in years. Service was friendly and timely as always. The only weakness to is, if you are a dessert lover, is that selections are limited.
