Eat on the covered patio if you can5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner group of seven May 20, 2013Brought the team to Canoe for dinner. I have been there before and was expecting great food and service. I of course was not disappointed. The team used the word experience when describing the dinner. Thanks to the team at Canoe for the great dinning experience !!!!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyVery good. We tried this place out for brunch a few months back and my wife couldn't stop talking about it. It was so delicious. We had to try the dinner and we brought a guest with us to share our favorite restaurant. We all shared our meals around the table and everything was delicious, from the steak to the duck and halibut. Everything has an amazing taste.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphere and great serviceThis was my first visit and I really liked the ambience! Amy, our server, was very personable and she greeted us with her names as we sat down. The food was really good overall - the grilled atlantic salmon was seasoned to perfection and prepared exactly as I had asked. However, I would recommend that the chef do something different in preparing the cod.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceMost tables are great but ones facing the river are really unique. They have some really nice tables that seat 5-7 near the windows facing the river. Wonderful She Crab soup.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch ServiceI dined here for a celebratory dinner on Sunday evening. Although the weather was rather dreary, the ambiance at Canoe was awesome. Our server Casey was delightful, friendly and attentive without being pushy and knowlegable about the menu in a genuine "I've actually eaten that" kind of way.
My personal fave was the smoked salmon on potato fritter...nice!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressiveFrom the originality of the drinks at the bar to the taste explosion of each bite, there is nothing more to say than IMPRESSIVE. The meal was remarkable and surprisingly affordable. Every bite excited the taste buds. Cannot wait to go back and try the rest of the menu. Our waiter's personality added the finishing touch to our experience. Not only was he friendly, knowledgeable and confident, his recommendations were spot on.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSerendipityMy experience was absolutely amazing! The service and overall atmosphere was absolutely spectacular.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat menu and service...Great menu and service... Always impresses clients.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat As AlwaysWe love Canoe. We go there every year for our anniversary and sometimes for other special occasions and we are never disappointed in our experience.
The food is ALWAYS outstanding as is the atmosphere. We had requested a window table and got a table with a fabulous view. Canoe is a great place to go for special occasions like birthdays as they always make the person celebrating feel very special.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGem on the river.Family visiting from California enjoyed this gem on the river! The restaurant came through with the seating requested at time of reservation. Our waiter was well versed on the menu / specials. Ordered items from their varied menu were delectable. Thanks Canoe!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCanoe ReviewWonderful experience. Great food, wine and service. Also appreciated the open kitchen. Will absolutely be back!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Refresher Outside ATLWhen you need to take a piece of fresh air outside what Atlanta gives, Canoe ATL is absolutely wonderful. My girlfriend and I celebrated our 5th anniversary here and we DID NOT regret it. Such excellent service, food, and wine. We were able to walk afterwards near the Chattahoochee River. An unbelievable experience that we will not forget.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing DinnerThe service is excellent. The waiters will guide you to a most relaxing and memorable dining experience. Make your reservation, show up and let the magic happen!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always I had a great experienceAs always I had a great experience at Canoe. The food was delicious, the wine list extensive and the service was pleasant.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing service & beautiful sceneryWe went to this restaurant for a graduation lunch for my husband. The staff really made the day really special for our family. The menu was creative and delicious, but truly the staff makes me want to come back for any special occasion.
I would HUGELY recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or date night.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic settingCanoe's setting on the river is stunning. We dinned there at dusk and the fog was rising from the river. You could not design a more romantic setting. The food was great and the staff was excellent. You can't ask for a better dinning experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome PlaceWe took my mom here for a Mother's Day celebration. It was amazing, the food, the staff, the view. I highly recommend Canoe. My sister and daughter didn't see anything that peeked there interest on the menu, and our waitress helped them create their own pasta dish. They really cater to the customer. I have a gluten intolerance and our waitress was more that happy to assist with accommodating my dietary needs.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDining ExperienceI've been ranting and raving about my experience at Canoe since leaving Saturday evening. Everything was incredible, from the food, to the experienced staff, to the atmosphere. This was my first time dining here, but will definitely be returning.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy did I wait so long?I have lived in the greater Atlanta area for nearly six years now and have been waiting for a special occasion to visit Canoe. Now, I'm mad that i waited so long. The location along the river is beautiful. It has a feeling of privacy that makes you feel like you're part of an exclusive club. (Even though it's open to the public) The staff and service was exceptional, and my relatives from out of town were thoroughly impressed. This is a GREAT date night Restaurant! Put Canoe on your "must visit" list of Atlanta restaurants.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny!My husband and I do not get to splurge on a night out very often but I have to say this was well worth the money! Scallops were to die for and the service was too good to be true.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinner at CanoeIt was a good as usual with great service. My last visit was a bit odd so it was nice to see them get it right.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding in every wayIt's everything you aMt in a restaurant....excellent food, excellent service, outstanding ambience and beautiful views by the river....as close to.perfect as it gets5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst experienceI chose Canoe for me and my girlfriend's anniversary. It was also the first time we had eaten there. Everything was outstanding, from the food to the service. I will definitely tell my friends to come to Canoe5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem in Busy MetropolisThis restaurant has great food and great service. Above all it was so nice to be able to view the peaceful river and beautiful outdoors while not leaving the "big city". My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience with truly delicious food and a romantic atmosphere.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavor... redefined.Wow. Attentive and pleasant service. Unique cocktails. The beet appetizer was wonderfully tangy, with a fun texture of firm beets and smooth, creamy goat cheese. The smoked salmon had a rich smoky flavor. The shining star of the evening was the sea scallops - cooked to perfection, melt-in-your-mouth amazing. Everything on the plate worked together to enhance the meal. The steak was good, cooked just right, but it was just a steak. The accompaniments of wasabi mashed potatoes, mushrooms and vidalia onions, made for a very good dish. Desert was just as good as expected - the vanilla bean creme brûlée was creamy and smooth, served on a nice wide dish to maximize the carmelized crust.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently outstandingThe service and food are always excellent here. I've been several times for brunch and a couple times for dinner. It is also child friendly for a nice restaurant. At brunch you often see babies in their carriers or highchairs. Definitely get the sticky buns and scones at brunch! The fish dishes here (at brunch and dinner) are some of the best I've ever had (and I've eaten at The Optimist, which is also outstanding). The cocktails are also very good and the wine list substantial. Oh, and definitely save room for the Chocolate Grotto for dessert. Can't wait to go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbEvery aspect of dining at the Canoe-from the parking lot attendant to the person keeping your water glass filled is outstanding. The food is always fresh, tastes fantastic, and is unique. Service is impeccable.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing dining experience . . .Probably the very best dining experience we have ever experienced . . . wonderful outdoor ambience . . . we will be back many times - and ask for Layne, she is amazing!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our anniversaryWe celebrated our anniversary and had a great experience, great view of the river and the service was excellent!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner on the ChattahootchieExcellent service and the food dishes were superb.

Great staff and nice variety on menu. Sticky buns are awesome. Def need to reserve table as they book up fast. Nice to go and walk by the river after.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific RestaurantBeautiful restaurant, with a great view of the Chattahoochee and delicious food.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing & RomanticCanoe was highly recommended to be by a friend. It did not disappoint. Service was great, food was great, cocktails were great. We were there to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been better. It was pouring that night but the kind valets held an umbrella over my head as I got out of the car. Great service from start to finish. Amazing food all around. Wonderful & creative cocktails. I can't wait to go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGo-to place for a date nightGo-to place for a date night get away for my wife and I. Fantastic food and amazing bar scene right on the bank of the Chattahoochee river. A must for any special occasion or just a quiet evening. Highly recommended!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visitThe food was unique and delicious. The staff was very personal and made the dining experience more enjoyable.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dream Come TrueWe have always wanted to visit a top rated restaurant in a new state to us. Canoe was on our wish list and it became a reality . The service, ambience and food was top notch. Beginning with the crab cake app to the Char and Steak mains and unforgettable ice cream with popcorn for the finale. Thinking about the meal two days later . Would definitely return. Special kudos to our server and wait staff. So down to earth!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner for my wife and meMy wife and I share a birthday (a stipulation of my significant other search many years ago) and received recommendations for Canoe. I made reservations through OpenTable easily via my iPhone app. Parking looked difficult, but the restaurant has complimentary valet. I think it's a good sign when the parking lot is full, even on a Thursday night. We were immediately seated and the waiter was given a heads up regarding our dual birthday. The recommendations for the appetizers, main courses, and drinks were spot on. I had the smoked salmon and the short ribs - both were among the best I've had, ever. Great view outside; next time I'll come back early to enjoy the patio and have a drink at the outdoors river bar. Great experience!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely Enjoyable ExperienceI was in town on business and found Canoe online. I was dining by myself and really enjoyed Canoe because it served upscale food without being stuffy. The waitstaff was wonderful and made you feel very welcome and comfortable. The smoked salmon app was incredible! The music and Gardens outside provided a great ambience. If I could transplant Canoe to NY, I would be there once a week. Can't say enough good things!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service is par excellence.The service is par excellence. Very polished and knowledgeable; not rushed. The food was very good; nicely presented. Everyone you encounter, from valet to maitre' d to bar staff is super-friendly and courteous.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMStill is one of our favoriteStill is one of our favorite spots. Great food and service.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary Celebration!Celebrated our 10th Anniversary here. Wonderful food, service and ambiance! All staff and servers were so friendly and we were wished a happy anniversary from the moment we arrived, and numerous times before we left. Food was awesome!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe service, the service, the service.... You have to say it three times because that signature is what you will remember about a visit to Canoe. The food is also simply divine. The chef has a knack for taking an ordinary favorite and transforming it into a tastebud delight. (I just want to mention the caramel popcorn ice cream here because whomever thought of that is simply genius.) The entire menu is great. They serve you like you are royalty, but in a very down home neighborhood type of way. We celebrated...ate to our heart's content...and had an overall great time. All this while overlooking the Chattahoochee River...simply wonderful.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMJumbo Lump Crab CakeI had the Jumbo lump crab cake. It was served over cabbage slaw. Although the dish was very tasty, I was very disappointed in the size of the 1 crab cake. My guests ordered sanswhiches and received a much greater portion, than I'd recieved. I thought that since it was one crab cake, that it would acutally be Jumbo. After my visit at the canoe, i had to find myself something more filling to eat. Overall the experience was nice, and I enjoyed the scene! My guests enjoyed their meals as well, but we were all a little surprised about the crab cake. Thanks!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceMy wife and I chose Canoe to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. It turned out to be an excellent decision. Service was fast and our server Matt explained everything on the menu thoroughly enough that even a non-foodie could understand what they were getting. We enjoyed the smoked salmon appetizer and my wife ordered the Rabbit and I had the Monk fish. All were excellent. We finished the night with the chocolate grotto which was also quite delicious. The best part of the whole thing was being able to stroll down to the water and relax with a glass of wine while the river flowed by. Overall, Canoe is really a perfect venue for a relaxing and romantic evening. I'm confident we'll be back soon.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMB-Day lunchI was there for my B-Day lunch and it was wonderful. From the wine, to the delicious bread selection to the entree and then
a special B-Day dessert. The server was attenttitive but not overbearing. We sat inside but has a beautiful view of the river and
garden. Perfect spot for lunch or dinner or just drinks outside.
My favorite restaurant all-round in ATL!!! We are in the restaurant business and love going out to different places to try the food.
I am also a gourmet cook therefore enjoy trying other chefs preparations of food.
A must!!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM10 Years & CountingI have been going to Canoe for over ten years and I have NEVER been disappointed! This does not mean that they get 5 stars on every visit but it is a wonderful restaurant with amazing food, great service and exceptional consistency. Ask for Evan!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!!My wife and I are always looking for fine dining restaurants to try and definitely enjoyed the Canoe. Was way above my expectations. The food was excellent, atmosphere was relaxed and romantic. Which is nice since it was our anniversary. There was even a marriage proposal down by the river. Don't think it could have picked a better restaurant.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
