Diner Reviews
  • "Canoe has been my favorite restaurant--and my birthday choice--for several years now. The lunch menu offers an excellent variety of entrees and sandwiches, prepared with a creative flair and accompanied by impeccable service. A relaxing and delicious interlude in an otherwise hectic day!"

  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday here w/2other couples...couldn't have asked for a better time. Our server was excellent, the food superb ( the rabbit was killer!) and the total vibe of the place was outstanding! We will most def be back!!!!"

  • "Delicious fresh corn soup w lobster garnish; most beautiful presentation, deconstructed straw berry shortcake w dense shortbread base & homemade lavendar ice cream; salted caramel chocolate bombe was "the best dessert our foodie friend ever ate". Cod sandwich _grilled not fried, on a brioche bun was good. Two friends ordered their fav house smoked salmon & loved it.. Good appetizer portion but small for lunch. Incomparable gardern/river view & impeccable service."

  • "Canoe is an amazing restaurant! We had a wonderful experience going there for a birthday celebration. Everything from the staff to the food was perfection. They have an amazing wine list, too. Seating out on the patio, overlooking the gardens and river, was the perfect romantic spot!"

  • "This was a really nice place to find. Located in quiet, quaint little neighborhood. Scenic location by the riverside. Immaculate and beautiful landscaping. Cute, rustic decor. The food was top notch. Much of it was rather unique (game and local fare prepared using fine dining techniques). A couple of notes: The food was really good and definitely worth trying (especially for the uniqueness of some of the dishes) but, being honest, I have been to other places in this price range that are a tad higher in terms of taste. The other thing is that the noise level inside was rather high. Though we had a nice, romantic evening, the noise made it not as intimate as we might have liked. Still, though, we really enjoyed it."

  • "I love to bring out of town guests here...a little bit of the South that they've read about, right outside the big city. They always ooh and Aww!"

  • "This was recommended to me for a business lunch. The views are great and the staff is very accommodating. They go above and beyond and I wish I had more of this service at other restaurants. Food and portions are excellent."

  • "Sitting with a glass of wine on the banks of the Chattahoochee and hearing June bugs is a rare treat so close to the city - you feel a million miles away. Service was outstanding - no detail overlooked - and food was exceptional from appetizer to dessert. Can't wait to go back."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Great experience as usual. Canoe never let's me down!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "This place was fabulous. Everything was perfect. I wish we would have gotten there earlier in order to prowl the grounds. Amazing things they are doing here."

  • "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!"
