Spent one night in Toronto and this was our meal. Everything was delicious AND interesting. Fun flavors, textures, presentation. Real attention to detail. The home-made bread was out of this world. So much care and attention to detail. Bravo Canis team!!!

I would not recommend this restaurant. The awful stench coming into the dining room is appalling. I could not enjoy the food which the stench of rotten sewers swept across the dining area. It all stems for the narrow stairs that lead to an even...More
