    A great spot!! We have dined for brunch as well dinner and lived both meals. Menu is small but they have perfected each dish! A perfect restaurant for a meal before the theatre.

    We go to The Canteen before every one of our TSO concerts, and I order the steak frites. On the last two occasions, especially yesterday June 1, the cut of meat was not only much smaller, which is in itself no problem, but it was especially tough and tasteless. I'm afraid the quality has been declining lately, much to our disappointment, sorry to say.

    Beautiful patio, I had a great burger, and the Happy Hour margarita was delicious. We had tickets for a show, and our waitress was quick with drink orders, meals, and the bill. We were a party of 4 and this was our second time having dinner at the OB Canteen. Great spot

    Pleasant mid afternoon stop for a meal before a movie. Emily, our server was pleasant and responsive . Love the squid tacos and enjoyed them once again even with the little “bite”. I find dropping into Canteen is a good choice for me but not before Blue Jay games when I know it gets very busy. If you plan to go then, make a reservation.

    This restaurant is convenient since it is attached to the Tiff festival theatre and the food is more than adequate for a pre-movie meal. But this would not be a destination for a meal in itself. The patio could be much prettier than accommodating, and the indoor location is quite noisy.

    Quick service and bright environment. Moscow Mule came in a glass rather than the typical copper mug which was odd. It was good though. The apps were great: spicy tacos and sea salt fries. The tuna poke bowl was good but could've been bigger. The schwarma chicken dish had the same base of grains which was interesting. Larger portions recommended.
