The restaurant is comfortable without being too casual, although it's certainly not black tie. It's located in the financial district and close to lots of hotels, attractions, and public transit which is part of why we picked it. The service was prompt and accommodating, although our waiter wasn't particularly helpful in terms of assisting us with a wine recommendation. The food, however, was fantastic. We both elected to pick from the prix fixe menu and everything--salad, soup, steak, dessert--was stellar.

We went for a pre-theatre dinner with friends. Our reservation was on time and the service was good - quick, friendly and responsive to our concerns. All of our dinners arrived cold. They were returned with warmer meals but still disappointing to have to do that. We all all pretty sure they were just heated in a microwave. We might have expected the manager to come to apologize for the cold food as it was not the servers fault. We also found it to be over priced for the quantity and quality of the food. Not a great experience..

The people at the next table were extremely loud. Group of 4 with two people standing next to the table. Also, my fries were dead cold. While my server was busy, another server came by and asked me if everything was ok? I told him about the noise at the next table, he replied: "this is how it is in Toronto". I also told him about the cold fries and his reply was: "they are always cold on a busy night".
If I was alone or with a buddy, I would have complained to the manager and demanded compensation!!! but because I was with my wife, I stayed quite not to make a scene.
If this kind of dining experience is considered normal for you then I will gladly take my business elsewhere.
Extremely disappointed.

I gave Canyon creek a lower rating this time, because the staff were over run and tired, not very personable. But they were effective in getting our food out on time. The food which is usually top notch was not. My husbands prime rib (ordered Medium well) came really well done and was extremely dry and he returned his baked potato which was under cooked. My sirloin steak was cooked perfectly, but was very chewy, made me think it was not really a good cut of beef. There was no extra visited to the table from staff and we had to keep flagging staff down when we needed something. I felt that because we were a fairly quiet couple were put in a corner and ignored!

The food was great, however our server was rude and condescending. I have never been treated so badly at any restuarant. No sooner did we sit and open the menu was the server asking if we were ready to order and that there was a 2 hour seating limit. We asked for a few minutes and he looked at his watch and said he will be back in 2 to 3 minutes. As he walked away I went straight to the hostess to ask if there was another booking for our table and she had confirmed no, I then asked if there was a seating time limit and she looked puzzled and said no. I went back to the table and the server was there again asking if we were ready to order. I was gone for 2 to 3 minutes, we asked again for a few more minutes and he said he would be back in 2 minutes. I timed it to see if he was keeping track and he was. When I was asking about some of the food items, he very rudely said 'well if the description doesnt say it then it doesnt come with it'. I was simply asking if I could substitute due to dietary restrictions which I did mention. Once we placed out dinner order we did not see our server again till it was time for dessert. When my elderly friend asked for the menu the server very rude said 'sir if you looked to your right, the menu is on the table flipped over'. This was unexpected, the beverage menu was on the table flipped upside down, all the server had to say was 'let me get that for you'. We were still having the last few bites of dessert when the bill was dropped off and he started to clear the table, our wine glasses still had at least an inch of wine.
We frequent this location often and have never been treated like this.
We should not have to worry who our server will be if we return. The food is great however as the servers is the face of the restaurant, this location is being represented in a less than appealing.
This is a great coaching opportunity.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends visiting from the UK after the ball game. Service by Alejandro was great, food was delicious and our table was private enough for conversation without noise. Always a pleasure to patronize the restaurant and highly recommend it.

We arrived at the restaurant a bit early for our reservation but no problem. We were walked by all the open booths and taken the booth at the kitchen door. The booth was not full sized and had been crammed in limiting legs space we are over 6 feet tall. Plus I don’t enjoy all the traffic by the kitchen door. They graciously moved us only to have a medical rep and doctor to sit beside and proceed to show a slide show of operating techniques, not appetizing and the wait staff never entervened on our or other dinners behalf. I shouldn’t have to complain it was ridiculous. Also we informed waiter we had a show and our dinner took ages. Ps the peppercorn sauce has been changes and is not as enjoyable. Will probably avoid dining here in the future.
