A nice quiet restaurant with great food and staff

I've eaten here several times now and each time has been great. The staff are very good and the food is well priced. My last meal here was the baby back ribs which were sensational.. Cooked to perfection.. Will definitely be going back for these again..

I ate at the Canvas with a friend, the food was very good with a good choice on the menu. My friend asked for her burger to be cooked Medium rare and that is exactly how they cooked it. The only problem we found was that is was rather a slow service. For a restuarant that was very quiet that... More

Almost all of the meals I've had in China on my trip have been fabulous but I was looking forward to a break during our planned visit to Canvas. Don't let the rather plain exterior fool you - this is a modern and very nicely designed spot offering good food. The large upstairs dining room is broken up into several... More

Overloaded menu with inconsistent dishes. I went already 3 times hoping it would get better but it didn't. Burgers are very heavy, and patties are too spiced and not well cooked. It's more of a fusion American Asian than American, and the fusion doesn't work well. Wonderful setting though, but the food has to improve with more focused menu choices... More

Not only of course, but the place deserves a visit. Great food, kindness of Joe and his wife. Only the service is a bit slow, but quite common in China!

It was surprisingly good food. We order shrimp pasta, sausages, and pasta with bits of steak on it. The steak on pasta is very soft. Beer is fresh and the pineapple Daiqiri cocktail taste like ice cream with alcohol. Im so happy we got a chance to dine here.

The first time I have been here, having read mixed reviews I was quite curious what to expect. I stuck to the burgers as recommended by my peers and was amazed by the large variety in what seem to be quite unique burgers. All in all a very good burger for a decent prize. The salad I had for starters... More

My favorite Western restaurant in Qingdao! I eat here often and the food always delivers! Living in China, it's hard to find good legitimate Western food. In that regard, this place is a godsend. They have awesome burritos/tacos/tostados, the "slawbird" burger, steak dinner and their fried chicken is crispy and juicy! The portions are awesome; you never have to walk... More

The owners first off are two great Qingdao locals and this is what makes this restaurant slash winebar special that and its wines. The food on the other hand is hit or miss at the best of times it is very westerner friendly and that is where all the attraction comes from. Not one to be biased I have been... More
