Guests Say…

Spectacular dining experience in an intimate setting.
Chef Gorji makes memories here with his food. It is unique and really had little creative touches that made it different than anywhere else. The wine list was especially interesting ... Jenny Finch, Google

Congrats Chef! I frequent your restaurant & have sent others. Top notch. Food is incredible. —Laura Couch

Canary is one of those places you go when you want an intimate experience that never fails to please. Chef Gorji is there every night cooking your meal, himself! He cooks with inspiration and care to ensure every diner feels like they are the only diner. The food is always delicious and beautifully prepared. It’s my “go to” for any special occasion. —karene627435, TripAdvisor

Canary by Gorji is where we go for a consistently excellent meal! A quiet restaurant with only 10 tables (and no young children allowed).
