Canyon is consistently amazing and always a favorite! Can't go wrong with the prickly pear margaritas! Definitely worth the wait.

Every item on the menu is crafted and constructed with perfection. Fresh ingredients, innovative flavors, and great service make this restaurant a gem on the otherwise moribund Ft. Lauderdale food scene.

This restaurant has quite a following so be sure to get there before you faint from hunger because you may wait for a table. But the food will be worth the wait!

This restaurant is rated one of the best in Ft. Lauderdale for a reason. It's small, but the atmosphere is great. The service is impeccable, and the food amazing. Portions are very large and share-able. We enjoyed the beet salad, venison, muscles, and pene. It was a ton of food and all of it was great. The slightest flaw was... More

My husband and I had dinner for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Romantic atmosphere, a charming menu, attentive services and incredible food. We ordered the ceviche, tartar, octupus and the mussels. Everything was outstanding, bold flavors and beautiful combinations of ingredients. One of the best restaurants in South Florida! Highly recommend.

It is right on the most trafficked non highway road in the state. The food has always been outstanding. And yet- it seems like every time... More

Although I am not a fan of restaurants that do not take reservations, Canyon is still a favorite. This is a "go to" place for consistently good food and service. Although it has a casual vibe, the atmosphere is dark, lively, good for a date, or intimate/romantic dinner. The booths are especially nice but you may have to wait a... More

We loved our food at Canyon! Lobster avocado salad, shrimp dumpling, pulled pork tacos and grilled octopus salad. Amazing food! The service was surprisingly too fast that we felt that they wanted us out within an hour. The waiter was just okay, we felt rushed. We will go back to try other thing on the menu!
