Our server was so great! He was super polite and so kind when we changed our minds from sitting outside under the little igloos to inside due to weather. Although it was empty due to covid and it being a Tuesday evening, everyone was very accommodating and attentive.

The food was good, but not “the best in the world”. There were some inconsistencies with the quality and temperature of the food, but the drinks were strong thanks to our lovely waitress who was also working the bar.

The scenery was nice. I would be willing to give it another try.

So I've been to Canopy in the summertime but this time I specifically went to Canopy for the igloo dining. Our igloo had a hole in it. Even with the heater, it was still cold. So my friend and I basically ate in our coats. The food is ok but very limited in my opinion. The menu is small and I wish they would have more options. However, what I had was tasty so I would go again. Maybe make sure the igloo doesn't have a hole in it smh.

This was our second time at this restaurant. The first time we sat outside. This time we sat inside. The waiters were excellent and attentive, the ambience was perfect (indoors and outdoors), and the food is good (large portions). This is a great family restaurant in that the scenery keeps the kids engaged. The only warning I have is to inquire about the portion sizes when ordering. This restaurant believes in ensuring its customers are full. We will visit this establishment again and bring friends and family.

This was the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day! Between the direct sunshine and the ample heaters, the outdoor dining setup was perfect to keep us comfortable during our meal. I am from New Jersey and am use to good Italian food and I have to say the chicken parm sandwich was probably one of the best I’ve ever had. My husband had pizza which he said was the closest he’s had to a NY slice in DC. We will definitely be back !!

We requested indoor seating and were sat outdoor in a igloo type covering in 30degree weather we had to wear our coats and hats to stay warm. The bar was closed so we only were able to order mimosas. The menu was pizza or a Sub and The pizza tasted good but was overpriced. They had three igloos set up and the service was poor because it was a bad she likely didn’t want to keep coming outside- or that we could blame her for that. The experience wasn’t good and we will not return.

My friend and I went to the Canopy Central Cafe and Bar for Christmas lunch. The staff, in particular, Miss Deborah, was amazing! She went over and beyond to ensure the gift of hospitality with proactive service and a smile! We ate in the outside “igloos” adorned with white lights and furnished with comfy chairs, couches, warm blankets and a decorative rug. What a cool experience! There is also an old fashion space heater with decorative logs that lights up inside each igloo. And, if that wasn’t enough, we enjoyed the best veggies pizza, hot out of their pizza oven! Thank you Miss Deborah for making Christmas extra special for two women away from their families on Christmas Day!

This was probably one of my worst dining experiences. We arrived for our 2:15 at 2:13 and were taken to our table which was still dirty. We had to wait and stand in the middle of the restaurant for 10 minutes for someone to come wipe it off while we stood. No one came to speak to us take our orders until about 2:40 even though the kitchen “closed” at 3:00. then we started to receive drinks thereafter. The Drinks were good. Our server continued to quickly bring us refills which was nice. However to service from the manager was horrible. 5/6 of us ordered the same thing. My chicken came out pink while everyone else’s was fine. I sent it back and then received another piece that was still pink and even had a bloody spot. At this point I spoke with the manager and he asked if there was anything he could do for me. I told him I really was scared to eat anything else and I was not sure. He said they had wings which were smaller. And I said ok I do need to eat. So if you just change me for the wings I will take that. He agreed He brings the wings and soon after we ask for checks. Once the bills came (all separate), I was still charged the full amount for when I received raw chicken. When I addressed this with the manager, he said “well it’s a pandemic” I said “so you agree You game me raw food” he said yes. I said so it’s acceptable to serve me raw food and expect me to pay for it in a pandemic? He was quiet. Then he said “ok you can pay or you can leave Im not discussing this anymore” and sat the bill down. I proceeded to gather my things and just think of what I wanted to do. and then he threatened to call the police on me if I left - after he suggested that I leave. I am a young black woman and was surprised that this man would rather escalate the situation than accommodate a guest. Ive never been so disrespected or treated like this at any restaurant. I don’t even leave reviews when I get bad service. But this was appalling. I’ll never visit this restaurant again.
