First time I was really disappointed. We use to love going here and have given several gift certificates. Sorry we gave the last couple since we didn't think it was anything special this last time.

One of my favorite Southwest restaurants. I try to go here when I'm in St Louis. Love their chips and salsa. Great tacos and sandwiches. Would love go to go back and try their drinks if I didn't have to drive 2 hours home!

I was here with my coworkers after our last appointment, because the place was literally across the street. Decor was obviously southwest but I thought it seem a bit classier than your standard Mexican/SW decor. The ambiance was wonderful. Like most SW places they provided chips and salsa. The chips had three different kind where were tasty and added a... More

We had a great server who "made the best guacamole"! We were there on national margaritas night and they were good.

Canyon Cafe is where we ate on our first date “way back when,” and we return on a regular basis because of the great food and relaxing time we consistently have there. After a full week at work, I was ready to relax with my better half. When we arrived and saw the wait, we were quickly glad that we... More

Canyon Cafe is located in Plaza Frontenac, an upscale mall. The chips and salsa brought to the table were tasty. The Rico Rita and Top Shelf Original margaritas were very good and you are given the rest of the shaker to fill the glass twice. The Bison meatloaf was inventive with chile mashed potatoes and roasted veggies. The shrimp tacos... More

First of all, this restaurant has great chips/nachos practically when you sit, fresh and warm. I like the enchiladas, but any dish I've had is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and casual. Though at Frontenac Mall, parking is easy, covered or in air. Of course, have a margarita!

Canyon Cafe is my favorite Mexican restaurant in St. Louis. It is a more upscale take on Mexican cuisine with nice updated decor. I usually get the chimichangas which are fantastic. The complimentary chips and salsa are some of the best I've had.

We were staying at nearby hotel and looking for a quick bite to eat after traveling. Popped into Canyon Cafe and really enjoyed our meal. Never had to look for a server, she was there right when we needed but wasn't hovering... kind of appeared at the right times by magic! Food was very good... certainly not typical "mall" food....
