Canvas Restaurant and Market

13615 Sachs Ave.
Orlando, FL 32827
407-313-7800

Canvas is the brand new restaurant and market located at the Laureate Park Village Center in the heart of Lake Nona. 

Over the years the area of Lake Nona has seen some pretty rapid development, most notably of which is the development of Lake Nona Medical City. The 650 acre health and life sciences park is a landmark for Orlando and a premier location for medical care, research and education. Canvas Restaurant and Market, as it is formally named, is certainly hoping to make the area a premier dining destination as well.

Led by Executive Chef Bryan Thoman, the Canvas restaurant menu features new American cuisine that is influenced by Florida’s Southern and Latin American roots with a focus on seasonal and regional produce as well as an abundance of fresh, Florida seafood. The chef driven menu is filled with shareable appetizers, creative salads and sandwiches, hearty entrees, and wood grilled pizzas and flatbreads.

Every detail of Canvas has been thoughtfully designed and planned to create a welcoming space for guests. The restaurant’s exhibition style kitchen opens to the main dining room while floor-to-ceiling windows provide picturesque waterfront views. 

The market part of Canvas is open daily for breakfast and lunch. Guests can stop in and have a meal at the market’s communal table or chose from a variety of grab and go options, gourmet coffee, and fresh-squeezed juice and smoothies. The market also has comfortable seating and nooks where patrons can enjoy food and complimentary WiFi.


Diners can opt to sit inside in cozy banquettes, enjoy a meal out on the terrace overlooking the water, or toast with handcrafted cocktails at the prominent wooden bar.


The market also features a selection of carefully curated housewares, books, jewelry, local goods and furnishings in addition to housing the new Lake Nona Information Center.


Canvas is also very serious about its cocktails and drink menu. In addition to a great beer and wine selection the cocktail selection here is top notch. On the left is The Pink Flower with Hendrick’s Gin, Cointreau, Cappelletti, Lemon Juice, Boston Bittahs Bitters. On the right is a Postal by Plane with Flor de Cana 4 yr Anejo Rum( A rum I haven't had since my visit to Roatan, Honduras).


The Smoked Fish Dip features house smoked white fish, spiced cream cheese, sour cream and Parmesan flatbread for dipping. This was a very rich and delicious fish dip that was more than enough for two people to share.


On the Smaller Plates section of the menu, you can find the Apple Bourbon Braised Short Rib with brown butter, wild mushrooms, tomato confit, house made ricotta cheese and olive oil grilled sourdough bread to put all of that wonderful short rib on.


The Southern Hospitality Smash pictured left is made with Woodford Reserve bourbon, dry curacao, pineapple, basil and grapefruit bitters. To the right is a Very Dirty Martini.


The Pan Roasted Snapper not only looked spectacular, it tasted spectacular as well. This dish is served in a soy ginger sauce with with soy ginger glazed carrots and bok choy.


There are many great selections on the menu at Canvas, but as a burger lover, I couldn't resist the Short Rib and Brisket Burger with garlic dill pickles, lettuce, tomato, aged cheddar, caramelized onions, house made thousand island dressing on a brioche bun with hand cut fries. I could go on and on about this burger, but I’ll sum it up like this...This burger has potential to be one of Orlando’s top 5 burgers.


Although the Apple Crisp may seem like a basic dessert, I can assure you this was not your grandma’s apple crisp. The one at Canvas features gala apples, red D’Anjou pears, oat-almond crumble and is topped with salted caramel ice cream. Even as full as we already were, we managed to devour this wonderful dessert.

The 278 seat restaurant is one of Orlando’s only waterfront dining destinations and is really a beautiful restaurant from top to bottom. You may not live close to Lake Nona or Medical City, but I highly recommend you make the drive over there to check Canvas Restaurant and Market out. Who knows...you may even decide to become a resident of one of Orlando’s fastest growing communities.

The Restaurant part of Canvas is open Monday through Thursday from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Friday and Saturday from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Sunday from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.


The Bar Opens daily at 3:00 pm, and the market is open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
