Used to be full during summer days as they have a nice out door terrace.. but it seems that new management is concentrating more on private party bookings and neglecting rest of days... Went on a weekend and it was nearly empty ... service improved after complaining ...food bellow average ...

I arranged a banquet there for 20 people. The first thing that impressed me was the help and cooperation of the staff. They delivered on what they promised. The food was better that I expected. All my guests enjoyed it.

We have been to Canvas previously and it was very good before, albeit somewhat high priced. This time it was under new ownership and we were not as impressed. The old fireplace disappeared and replaced by a large TV screen. The new furniture is nice, but not so intimate. White leather mostly. The food was good, but many of the... More

I have visited canvas quite a few times over the past year and the following things always stand out to me: 1. The food is tasty and well presented. 2. The drinks are very expensive indeed. 3. The service is terrible - food arrives at very different times, if you order a starter and a main they tend to arrive... More

We had two different experiences of this restaurant, one on the front terrace fronting the beautiful gardens, and the other at the back terrace with its bright little tables and booths with floating curtains. The food and service are of a very high standard and the location hard to beat. You won't be disappointed here

I used to like this place a lot when I used to live in Amman. Havent been there for almost a year, and when I visited Amman again, I went there....SURPRISE!!! To start with, furniture are not maintained, chipping everywhere... Dirtiness.... Service becoming mediocre, a sandwich took almost 30 minutes to be served.. Long island is anything but Long Island!... More

I like Canvas it is a very accommodating place. Many people overlook that it is part of the Fine Arts Museum which adjacent through a small garden. The food is good and many people hold parties at this venue in the evenings making it an attractive and sociable place. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. There are... More

I attended a family function recently at Canvas and we had such a wonderful time. When walking in you get a great feeling that you are going relax and enjoy the surroundings. The outdoor seating area is great and it allowed for groups to sit and also for people to move and mingle with ease. The trees were used for... More
