The Canteen on Portland
The meal was absolutely delicious, I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. The waitress was knowledgeable and awesome!!
I ordered duck. Not much taste...a little overdone. Not sute it was the correct pairing with the sides that it came with.
Also couldn't see my meal when it came out as there were greens all over the food. I understand presentation. It just looked like the throwing on of the greens was the last quick grab and throw on before my meal arrived.
Great place. Good food. Great service. Busy but worth it. Looking forward to our next visit.
Great spot. Great spot. Great spot. Great spot. Great spot.
Delicious! A wonderful place to enjoy food with friends and replenish calories burnt during our early morning run.
The Canteen is one of my favorite places to eat in Dartmouth and I always enjoy my meal. However, the food was good on New Year's Eve, but not exceptional, and the table that we had was horrible. We were stuck in the middle of the floor, and it really affected the enjoyment of our evening. All three of us hated sitting there, and for an evening that is intended to be special, it really felt like anything but.
My husband and I had a lovely New Year's Eve dinner here. Food was outstanding, service impeccable and overall experience enjoyable. So nice to have a fine dining experience in downtown Dartmouth. We look forward to a future visit.
The food was delicious and our server was extremely friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!
Too noisy for lunch time, food was okay but was better the 1st time I went there last year... pretty salty though which seems to be happening everywhere these days. We were not told the special and a dessert was taken away from us with a bite still left on the plate i.e we were not finished, felt like we were being rushed to leave.
My mom, sister and I went to the canteen and we absolutely enjoyed every part of it. The service was very friendly and professional. The wine selection was ok. And the food was fantastic.
Will be back for sure.
The host/owner (?) met us at the door and showed me to the table where my friend was sitting. The service was excellent. I ordered the crab/lobster bun with a salad and my friend had a burger. Both were fresh & tasty. Our water was refilled frequently which I enjoyed. The restaurant had cheerful decor and the bathroom was very clean. I would recommend this restaurant to others.
Everything is amazingly good, but still find it a bit noisy when every table is full. Not much that can be done about that but I long for a time when it isn’t full so I don’t have to work at conversation!
Excellent food at a reasonable price. Friendly service!
One word. Amazing. There were 5 of us. We all ordered something different and we each loved our choice. Highly recommend.
Lovely experience And excellent food!!! Will definitely come back again.
Had the chicken veg soup and a biscuit. It was really great. Canteen never disappoints !
Enjoyed a great lunch with coworkers. Loved being able to book online. Parking is sometimes hard to come by. Selection was great, service was friendly. Atmosphere was relaxed. Will go again!
Loved how fast everything was. Drinks came out right away. Appetizers right away. Felt like the flow was really impressive, especially seeing as how busy it was. Food was delicious. Definitely going back!
This was our second time at The Canteen, both times the food was delicious and truly beautiful. The service was above and beyond amazing. Very attentive, and made suggestions as well as had great knowledge of all menu items. Very personable! We will definitely continue to return.
Thank you for always making it such a lovely dining experience! I truly love this place! Your staff are wonderful!
A great new find in Dartmouth for me!! Will be back!
Food was phenomenal as always! Service delightful! Our favourite downtown Dartmouth date spot.
It was my second time at The Canteen and both visits have been outstanding. My friends have also been impressed with their meals. Our server gave us her recommendations (we asked) for the meal and the dessert and she was 'spot on'. A bit loud but otherwise fantastic evening.
Food was delicious but there was too much. Need to figure out how to baffle the sound. The noise detracts from the experience.
Good food, nice staff.. The noise level is very high and conversation can be difficult. I thought the cider was overly expensive.
Love the food, but find it difficult to carry on a conversation sometimes because of the noise level.
I just love this place. They have the most interesting breakfast/brunch options. Dinner is always fantastic as well. The wine is good and priced well.
We had brunch on Saturday - our second time there. Great both times. Friendly attentive staff and interesting food selection.
Very delicious! Food was amazing, pricey but it was good. Dessert was tiny so don’t plan on sharing! It was really loud , but that could of just been these two loud tables beside us.
Great restaurant, always excellent value and atmosphere.
Customer service was friendly and efficient, good at recommending items on the menu.
My second time here and with more friends, so tried some more appies as well as meals. So fantastic! This has become my new favourite restaurant in downtown Dartmouth! Actually in all HRM. Everyone in my party really enjoyed everything.
Excellent food and dining experience. The staff were incredible and the food was exceptional! We will be returning very soon.
I used my GoStarter coupon & took my friend. The starters were phenomenal!! I'll have to go back to try more Mains. However, the noise level was quite loud, but the food was so good
I'm still dreaming about the fried brussels sprouts...soooo good!! Everyone was delighted with their mains as well; Scallops, Haddock and the Chowder are all highly recommended by our table. One of our favorite spots to congregate! #Dartmouth
First trip to your current location (I know, why did it take so long...) and had a really fantastic meal! Server had a great knowledge of the menu, nice cocktail selection and awesome food! We will be back again soon.
Exactly as advertised. Food and drink selection is limited but very well thought out. I had the scallops. They were deliciously prepared. And the service was terrific. Friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.
Amazing, fascinating food. Such a lovely surprise when I taste the combination of flavours.
Always delighted to visit The Canteen! Great food, atmosphere, service and awesome use of local ingredients in their drinks and food.
