OMG, the setting is beautiful, the food was good and the service outstanding! Since we were early for our lunch seating, the hostess offered to let us explore the grounds or be seated. She checked our temperatures and we chose to sit outside on a...gorgeous day and enjoy a drink. We were seated at our designated time. Tables are spaced apart and servers all wore masks. The quality of the food was fresh. The servers all looked after each other, filling water glasses and clearing dishes if needed. The apple crumb a la mode for dessert was the exclamation point on a great meal. Highly recommend the experience! Reservations are recommended.More

Spent an anniversary having dinner here. It was highly anticipated and the view in the canyon certainly did not disappoint. The food, however, did. Trying too hard for a "presentation" of the dish vs. the actual flavor. Also, pricey. It's such a shame because the...restaurant and view are very nice, but food & staff just didn't live up to the hype.More

Outstanding views and the food was great also! Picturesque area of the mountains and valley as well as this "Kitchen" and all of the wood and decor is great! We had a 5 star meal with different courses. Service was great also!

If you are looking for top eats in a unique setting, look no further. Each dish is a unique creation by the two lead chefs and their team, and is updated frequently. Every course was played in a decorative way, sometimes using local flowers. We...enjoyed each and every course. The decor and atmosphere is well appointed. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and polite. Come hungry. I suggest skipping lunch of at least keeping it very light. You will leave full! This is not a quick eatery. Prepare yourself, come early, walk the gardens, have drinks and be merry. Expect to spend three hours enjoying the atmosphere and your company. Canyon Kitchen is a grand slam. All others pale in comparison.More

You so want it to be a perfect meal, so much about it is so well done, but some how there seems to be a little "tweek" of addition every dish that just doesn't fit... tonight, some kind of sandy, way over pickled mushroom that...had nothing to do with the rest of the dish. So ill placed and strong, my impulse was to spit it out.

I had looked forward for years to eating here. The Atmosphere is outstanding and we had a great table right on the edge of the indoor/outdoor space. Service was great - wonderful greeter and waitress. Food was disappointing. I chose the diver scallops which were...as I was told several times ceviche style. So my mistake to order as they had little taste. The most concerning was the entree options which were duck, lamb and trout. Both os us ordered the trout (as the lamb and duck accompaniments were unappealing) which quite frankly had very little taste. My dinner date had the pork belly as a side and it was not like any pork belly either of us had ever seen....like a large slab of very fatty bacon. Not particularly pleasing. We had the chocolate cake which was okay. Overall, at $106 per person, disappointing. My date cancelled another reservation for later this summer.More

Restaurant is open air dining. While probably reasonable given the mountain location, on hot August nights it can be slightly warm. Rather than seating us when we timely arrived, we were shuffled to the bar to await our table, even after my wife told the...host she was not drinking. After 10 minutes, the host finally seated us 10 minutes late for our reservation. The table was ready when we arrived. Only thought is he wanted us to have a chance to buy beverages before being seated. The service was great. The waiter and food runner were both pleasant and efficient. The food was just so-so. Far more interested in presentation than taste. Not to say the food was bad, it wasn't. The trout was bland. The rest of the meal was good.More

Our first visit here. In fact had never heard of it until visiting friends in the area. We were really impressed. We were there on a lovely night and the had a nice bar and col place to sit and visit while waiting on our...table. Our table was outside but even those under roof were open air. We dressed casually but there didn’t seem to be a dress code,just an upscale clientele. This is a fixed price restaurant. I think it was $68 pp. This was for four courses with two selections for the first three and I think four for desert. Their wine list was pretty expensive but they had reasonably priced wine. There were 6 of us and we were all pleased with our selections. Certainly not inexpensive but no complaints about quality, service and beauty of the facility.More

Canyon Kitchen is a special place for dinner. Go early and enjoy the huge rock walls above the valley. You choose from a fixed menu of four courses for $68.00 plus 20 percent tip. And it’s worth every penny. If you can’t get a reservation...just show up and they’ll probably seat you. It’s a bucket list experience you won’t forget.More

Although the venue is 'open air' during the spring when we visit, I would say due to the higher dining experience pets of any kind would be more comfortable in a more casual setting than Canyon Kitchen.

Per their website - Canyon Kitchen is open Wednesday through Sunday nights for dinner, mid-May through early November for the 2015 season. They haven't updated it, but I imagine it'll be the same for 2016.
