    Place is too small so it gets too crowded easily. Not a place for claustrophobic people. Waiting time for table is 20-30mins. Other than that their prickly pear margarita & tuna tartare are the bomb!

    BYO fans; Bring your own wine – provided that Canyon does not carry it – for a corkage fee of $25 a bottle.

    No reservations and a small bar, but patience is worth it. Small plates way to go: tostadas are great and a good value. Skip the dumplings. Wash everything down w prickly pear margaritas!

    Stay all night during happy hour at the bar with 1/2 off menu appetizers.

    The Day-Glo pink of Canyon's Prickly Pear Margarita hints at the Hawaiian Punch flavors favored by college girls with bad fake IDs, but devotees swear by this balancing act of a beverage.

    Indulge with a famous Prickly Pear Margarita where the ingredients are kept mum but the punchy flavors will have you say “Yum!”

    Great Southwestern Restaurant. They're famous for their Prickly Pear Margaritas for a reason - don't leave without trying one!

    Best restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, IMHO. The poblano pepper app is outstanding and save room for the signature desert. Definately a place for foodies. Ask for Jeff. He'll take care of you!

    Absolutely my favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. Incredibly fabulous food. They take no reservations, so get there early! Pricey, but worth every penny :)

    The Prickly Pear Margarita was named Best Margarita by New Times Broward PB! Balance is key to the margarita and this specimen walks a tightrope of secret ingredients without faltering one bit

  • Rob B.

    The meatball was amazing. Kinda pricy but all in all very good.

    Rob Bejusca · May 31, 2011
  • Mario R.

    The Canyon is awesome, just make sure to come dressed up or you'll end up like us and be put in THE DARK TABLE where no one can see you and your poor people clothes, then you'll have to use your phone
