Ok, we got a view, and service was good,BUT the food is average at best, so little of it! We all left hungry!!! It is so extremely over priced, and we waited 1month to get into this place!!! First, and last time to canyon kitchen!!! If you still decide to try it eat before you go!

Heavenly. Easily 5-stars plus. Superlative experience in an exquisite setting. Our family of eight, including granddaughters 11 and 9, offer highest praise for our July 15 dinner at Canyon Kitchen. We arrived at the end of a twilight rain, met by welcoming young staff, umbrellas aloft. Gathering to enjoy the view overlooking vegetable, herb, flower gardens in a box canyon... More

Donna W, Thank you for your positive review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your dining experience and our natural setting. While our salad greens are sourced from our own kitchen gardens, you are correct; we also supplement our vegetable offerings with produce from other local farms. It’s always good to have an experienced farmer/grower dine with us. We hope... More

This restaurant is nestled in the mountains with beautiful views. The views are beautiful and so is the presentation of the food. I recommend arriving early and having a drink in the garden on the grounds. The food is locally sourced and delicious. The meal is 4 courses. We were given one choice for the appetizer, then three different choices... More

This place is OUTSTANDING! My son (an adult) and I visited last Saturday evening and were impressed the entire time. We arrived at 5:45 and had time to order a cocktail and drink most of it in the meadow in Adirondack chairs. My son had a Willet bourbon drink and I had a blackberry vodka and basil drink. Mine was... More

Come early, get a drink, and walk outside Canyon Kitchen to take in the beauty of Lonesome Valley. Then, bring your zen state inside for an equally beautiful meal. The options are limited with a starter, two appetizers, three entrees, and three desserts. However, please don't be put off as the chef perfectly takes local ingredients and translate them into...

Celebrating two Anniversaries with great friends. The setting for this restaurant is beautiful but it was very hot and buggy and the food was average at best.
