Back again to see Charles and his wonderful restaurant on Holland Avenue. The service was excellent. The food was great. Charles allows some flexibility for your pallet. Good wine to go along with a great meal. no one rushing you out of the restaurant. Thanks and we shall return.

Canvas is by far my favourite restaurant around my workplace. It is such a cozy place that I wish I had more time at my breaks to eat there everyday. The service is impeccable. The server is adorable. And the owner is a true food passionate. I recommend the barley risotto. But as a start, go for the cheese platter.... More

This was my first time at Canvas and won't be my last. I was pleasantly surprised at the coziness and laid-back ambiance it exudes. Three of us dined there for lunch, and the menu isn't overwhelming and offers something for everyone. There is a daily soup special, a quiche, pasta and fish of the day. I enjoyed a trout on...

My husband and our daughter decided last minute to go out for Dinner. We decided to go to Canvas as we had not been there for a while. We had a delicious meal and really enjoyed ourselves. The Steak Frites was divine and the meat was perfectly cooked. Charles helped to chose the wine which complimented our meal. Sadly we... More

I usually visit this restaurant at lunch time for business. They have a variety of lunch specials and additional à la carte menu items. I recommend their salade niçoise or their soup. Service is very friendly and quick.

Food is delicious. You can't make a bad selection but prices are through the roof. I guess it is meant to be fine dining but not up to par for that.

I discovered this restaurant by accident even though I had driven by it tons of times. A friend invited me to lunch there and I was pleasantly surprised. She loved her selection and I liked mine. My quiche was a little overdone but was still good. What made my afternoon was the restaurant's relaxing atmosphere and excellent service. I felt... More

Today was my second visit to Canvas for lunch. First thing thought the door we were greeted by the very and helpful staff. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxing (which might have been why our lunch lasted almost 2 hours even if we were done eating after the first). The food was great, although I have to admit that... More

On the July long weekend, my daughter, her friend, and I went to Canvas for brunch. It was recommended by her friend who has eaten there in the past. The Holland Avenue location is nice with a small patio and parking on the street. On this occasion, everything went wrong. The first item on the menu was unavailable (yogurt, fruit... More
