Wonderful food with greaet service in a gorgeous setting

We recently dined there with a party of eight. The four rookies who wanted to know why we had kept this secret from them. Even though it was a busy Friday night we were never rushed .

Had dinner with a group of friends last week and it was average at best. Snack selection for the table was not very good. Brussels sprouts were hard as rocks, Caesar salad had little if any flavor, Salmon on a sorbet was just weird and the fourth one was unremarkably forgotten. Entrees were tuna which was very good and a... More

Didn't know a thing about it, made reservation, pulled up to find a beautiful farm style restaurant. (It's like a lesser "barn" at blackberry farm). I mention it feels a little like blackberry and was pleasantly surprised to hear the chef had been at blackberry for years! Food is simple creative farm to table. Not many choices but what we...

The setting is breathtaking. The grounds are beautiful. The building is unique. The food is among the best we have ever had, anywhere. This is a very special place, and perfect for that special occasion, or for a great dinner, anytime.

We have been to Canyon Kitchen on several occasions, and all of our 'experiences' have been great. I say that because the restaurant is open on two sides, with views of white cliff mountains, and pastoral gardens, which adds a lot to the evening. The menu is fairly 'set' with 2 to 3 choices for entrees and desserts, dictated by... More

The first thing you notice is the bald face rock on the mountain looming in the background. Then the vast field in the foreground with mature hardwoods dominating the landscape. Closeby are the gardens with various vegetables and herbs guaranteeing the freshness in your meal. The structure itself has a towering ceiling and the huge fireplace is roaring in the... More
