From beginning to end, this was an absolutely lovely experience. We did the larger tasting menu and wine pairing and everything was excellent!
Perfect progression of dishes.
Fantastic service & ambience. The food was like nothing we've ever had..truly exceptional. Pace and timing of the dishes were spot on, and they are definitely not charging enough because the full experience was way beyond the bill at the end.
Also, gorgeous cutlery and plating! Thanks chef(s)
Courses starting off felt a bit rushed but then paced out very well. Service was very attentive, but the descriptions were a bit mumbled when each course was served. Highlights were definitely the DUCK LIVER TART, SCALLOP CARROT BUTTERMILK DILL, HEN OF THE WOODS MUSHROOM W/ TUNA, YOGURT ICE CREAM W/ MAPLE SYRUP. Portions started off dainty but by the time the mains came on you definitely started to feel the filling up. Plating was beautiful and thought out. Some very unique combinations that played well: pork + hazelnut, currants + lamb, etc. A nice celebratory meal!
Our second visit and totally awesome experience!
Menu was completely different from first visit everything was absolulely perfect!
The tasting menu was great. Both taste and presentation were amazing. Like the minimalistic and earthy tone of the setting. Highly recommended
Front to back, going to Canis was a great experience. Staff was awesome. We sat at the Chef's table/counter. Place was busy. Music was perfect. Definitely recommend!!
A fabulous dining experience! Everything was delicious except the coffee.
Amazing meal! Hard to decide which dish was the favourite as almost all the dishes were outstanding!
All the food was excellent and wine pairings worked very well. Attentive, knowledgeable and charming service.
Une cuisine d'exception et créative avec un service impeccable
Canis was a fantastic experience! From the ambience to the service to the amazing, amazing food - it made for a perfect place to celebrate a beautiful anniversary. Thank you to Adam and his team for an unforgettable dining experience! We will definitely be back and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice night out!
Good food and service. Highly recommend to people who wants to try tasting menu with western type.
Very impressed with Chef Jeff Kang's restaurant and tasting menu. High quality ingredients, beautiful plating and harmonious flavours. The team is hospitable and kind. The restaurant is perfect, no distractions from the food. My husband is a Chef in New York and we both agree this restaurant must be top 3 places to eat in Toronto if you have an appreciation for fine gastronomy.
Food was amazing !!!
Food is definitely worth a go. But the ambience and service needs some improvements. A bit too loud and too dark. Overall a 7.5/10
We went to Canis for our Anniversary. They were so busy as usual but they've got us to sit at the pass which I requested and it was an amazing experience. The food was fantastic and the service as well. Definitely our favourite spot in Toronto.
Awesome restaurant, food is incredible and attention to detail is great
We had a special dinner menu for the Christmas. It was incredibly tasty! Amazing!
Amazing Christmas dinner, a great mix of dishes with bold flavours and delicate subtlety. Bravo!
Best meal of 2017. Each dish was distinct and outstanding.
Words won’t do this place justice/ absolutely phenomenal.
Resto très simple, déco de base, cuisine ouverte. Sélection de vins chers et peu de variété. Carte courte, soit 5 ou 8 mets en dégustation. Service charmant et attentionné. Plats délicieux!
Very friendly staff. A fabulous dining experience!
if you like food, you have to go check it out, period!
Everyone at the table had to choose the same menu.. which was silly different people have different taste
The open table menu didn’t match the website and the open table menu was misleading it look like you could do a la carte
The food was delicious, and each course was spectacular. The wine pairings were very good. This place is expensive but good value considering the the quality and attention to detail. This was definitely one of the best restaurants I visited in 2017.
We had the $85 tasting menu and left comfortably full. Perfect portions and execution. Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Just a really great experience overall, will return!
Excellent in any way.
Definitely going back first chance I get
Staff is very attentive.
Staff has bought in, and it shows.
Good quality ingredients, creative pairings.
Make a reservation and be punctual.
This is a stylish and delicious spot for foodies on a date. I highly recommend.
Exceptional restaurant. The food was amazing. The variety of flavours, textures and ingredients is absolutely great. Definitely a recommend. Worth every dollar.
From the greeting at the door until the final good bye Canis was a truly enjoyable evening. When we arrived the table wasn’t quite ready and they sat us at the bar and served us a glass of prosecco immediately- a nice touch. Unpretentious but warm and knowledgeable service. We chose the Prix fixe menu , of which there are two choices for each course and between those we managed to try the entire menu. Unique , creative twists to the food, and a well rounded wine list that worked with all of it. (If you’re looking for cocktails - we weren’t- this is not your place , they don’t do them. )
We would definitely go back. Only question will be how often they change up the menu ...
Wasn't sure what to expect. I had read both positive and negative reviews. While I can't comment on the experiences of others, I can say that my experience was EXTRAORDINARY.
I went with a friend. Both my friend and I eat out a lot, for both business and pleasure. We were both mesmerized by the quality and inventiveness of the food. Inventiveness without confusing complexity. Great flavours, enjoyable and understandable, yet quite unique to the both of us.
I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a high-quality food experience. The Canis team there have done a top notch job of cultivating their craft in a unique and extraordinarily successful manner. My respects to the team!
This restaurant is truly excellent. Every dish tasted so fresh. Service was great and wine list were great. This is definiteky one of the best restaurants in the city.
Outstanding dinner and service, reasonable price, creative presentation and a throughly enjoyable evening celebrating a birthday.
My friend and I each got the 4 course tasting menu (pre fixe) so we could share everything. Dishes were unique and simple; flavourable, not overwhelming but tasty. The portions, although not very generous, when split in half were enough to have about 2-4 bitefuls each. The beef short ribs were amazing.
Went there with some friends, tasting menu was great...7 courses with some extra small amuse courses in there. overall food was awesome! left the restaurant full. Hope to return when there is a new tasting menu.
Every mouthful of food was amazing. Some unique flavor combinations.
