Diner Reviews
  • "We went for brunch on Sunday, the food was just fair, certainly not worth the money. the only bright spot was the service."

  • "I dined at Canoe about 6 months ago and had a great meal and service. The Venison entrée was delicious and special. this past experience was mixed only in terms of the food. there was a special shrimp appetizer with a Thai curry. Very flavorful excellent execution. a couple of us ordered the rabbit for an entrée and were very disappointed. the flavor was ok, the portion too small but the texture of the rabbit was similar to over cooked chicken but not as good. with all of the great offerings on the menu this dish is not worthy."

  • "The food was cold and it took 3 times to get the food hot. I will not return. I was expecting an amazing brunch and it was awful."

  • "We go to Canoe a lot for Brunch after church, and we are never disappointed. Make sure you make a reservation though! It's always a nice dinner for a special occasion as well. We will continue to keep coming back!"

  • "Cannot say enough good things about Canoe. Being huge foodies, we frequent restaurants around the Atlanta area constantly, but Canoe by far has been our favorite thus far. Not only is the food fantastic, the service is on point as well. Our server, Brittany, was polite and tended to our needs without needing to make a presence every time she approached the table--which is a must have for my boyfriend and I. (Servers really do make the dining experience over all...) To boot, the restaurant and the gardens are beautiful. This will definitely be our first choice for Atlanta dining."

  • "Took may daughter and her husband here for my daughter's birthday. Had some other family members attend as well. Daughter was surprised by the additional family. Great food! Great service! GREAT VIEW! Would recommend to anyone in the ATL area."

  • "It had been years since I had been at Canoe. Now I wonder why. The food, service, surroundings were outstanding."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The menu didn't have enough variety for me; after the floor manager had offered to prepare whatever we wanted, I wasn't impressed with the menu! I did take a tour of the property and decided that I would consider the venue for an outside wedding I am planning. Honestly, I wouldn't come to dine. I just didn't like their selection of entrees."

  • "Canoe never disappoints. We've been three times now, and each visit has been memorable. On all three occasions, the service, food, and scenery were absolutely fabulous! Canoe really sets itself apart - even in a town with many great restaurant options. Dining at Canoe is truly a wonderfully unique experience!"

  • "Cannot beat the ambience. My wife said her pork chop was outstanding. A little disappointed with the halibut cheeks, which were a little dry, but the scenic view, great service and timely delivery of drinks made up for this shortcoming. This is not just a trendy restaurant and you will want to come back. Tough to get a reservation at 7 if you only make a reservation 1 week in advance."

  • "Dining at Canoe is always memorable. Our server, Scott, was excellent, friendly and attentive..but not obtrusive. Food was outstanding...Canoe offers the total package in fine dining. Brunch is more affordable and scrumptious...but..go for dinner too. Lovely, lovely gem."

  • "We had another wonderful dinner and the service of Kevin and his co-workers was spot on. And by the way, our dinner was delicious. Plus they recognized not only my latest Birthday but my recent retirement with 2 spectacular desert servings. Well Done!"

  • "The service and food made our evening perfect. They have an extensive and interesting menu and our server made recommendations and was able to describe every selection. Everything we chose was wonderful. We all shared tastes . I especially enjoyed the house smoked salmon appetizer and the duck entree. For dessert they prepared a mousse filled birthday cake topped with ganache and fresh fruit."

  • "We brought our mothers for their first visit and both felt special and loved and savored the whole experience. For appetizers we had the smoked salmon and shrimp spring rolls. For lunch we had the cod and salmon. Dessert: angel food, hazelnut mouse & a light italian dessert. I will say from our dessert choices we all favored the angel food."

  • "We visited last year when we were in Atlanta and so enjoyed it that we had it on our definite list to do again this year. There wasn't anything specific... it just didn't wow us in any category - service, food or setting - like it did last year. Still, we would recommend it as a unique place to try."

  • "My boyfriend and I have been trying to go to Canoe since January for a birthday celebration but were thwarted by Snowpocalypse. It was so worth the wait! The view of the river alone is enough of a reason to visit! Add the fantastic food (from a unique menu), the exquisite service, and the candlelit ambience...and it's pretty much the perfect date night. Oh, and after hearing us joke about our veryyyy belated birthday celebration, our server Brittany surprised us with a birthday dessert (complete with candle). Service like that is hard to find! Though the room was buzzing more than I expected, we heard each other just fine and felt like we were in our own little world at the table. This will definitely be a future go-to for romantic nights."

  • "My in laws had come to Atlanta a few times before but my husband and I were never able to get a reservation booked (even if we looked a couple weeks ahead for a Friday or Sat night).We finally managed to get a reservation this last weekend. we wanted to celebrate their anniversary and mother in laws birthday. They sat us outside and the flies were HORRIBLE. They did not have candles to light to control them. I don't understand how they didn't have the outdoor candles to control all the flies. They didn't offer to move us. Flies were in our wine, food, etc. This is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta that we talked up for years to his parents only to end in disappointment and in an evening spent fly swatting. I guess I know to sit indoors...."

  • "Celebrated our anniversary at Canoe again and everything was as expected. They have an amazing wine list, excellent service, and the food was absolutely tremendous. Dessert choices were irresistible and we loved the popcorn sundae. Will be back again whenever we want to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "Coming to Canoe was for my husbands birthday. We had to reschedule out outing twice due to babysitter mishaps but when we finally go to go this past Saturday, I knew he would absolutely love the scenery and the service that this gem of a restaurant has. The food is fantastic, the garden view of the Chattahoochee, amazing. The service, top notch. We made it to Canoe early, hoping we could get a seat earlier that 9pm. (our reservation!) We came in told them our last name, they told my husband happy belated birthday, and had an early availability outside where I wanted to sit. This place is an experience and don't just go once! You have to go again for an occasion with that significant other or with a group of friends or family. Its awesome!"

  • "The staff was knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. The food was solid. The setting was romantic. However, I was expecting amazing. Overall, we had an enjoyable night that was not particularly memorable. We will be back, but with lower expectations."

  • "We recently dined at Canoe to celebrate my birthday. I was told by many employees that helped us, hostess, server, etc. Happy Birthday, which made me feel special. The food was excellent and the waiter was attentive, but not too attentive, and was knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. I have also dined here for lunch, and received excellent service during that sitting as well. The veiws are gorgeous so if it's nice out, I recommend dining outside. I also recommend trying the pork chop, if you enjoy that sort of thing. It was delicious!"

We walked outside after brunch and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the beautiful view of the river. Definitely a favorite. The roasted chicken dish was unbelievable and the scallops were delicious. Definitely coming back!"

  • "I only gave 3 stars for the food not because it wasn't GREAT, it just didn't absolutely blow me away. I had the quail stuffed with chicken andouille sausage. The quail was just a bit under cooked for me. My husband got the trout and it was delicious! The oysters we super fresh, too. The service was superb, and with a beautiful view of the river, it's hard to say that it was anything less than perfect."

  • "Canoe is one of our favorite restaurants, but occasionally I am disappointed with the food. On this occasion I ordered the Monk fish and if that is what Monk fish is supposed to taste like, I will likely never eat Monk fish ever again. The fish was tasteless, as were the accompaniments. On the positive side, my wife had the rabbit, which she liked and the bread is always the best. The service is always very attentive and knowledgeable and they brought us an appetizer on the house while we were waiting for our entrees, which was very nice. Unfortunately, when there are so many good restaurant options, an outing like this at the money spent, causes one to consider going elsewhere."
