Canoe's beautiful historic riverside setting makes it the perfect spot for weddings, receptions and private celebrations.
Its original cuisine and distinctive design have already been featured in Bon Appetit, Food And Wine, Gourmet, The Wine Spectator and The New York Times. Canoe, recipient of the prestigious Mobil 4 Star Award, was also selected as one of the "Best New Restaurants" in the country by the James Beard Foundation.
We love Canoe! We do not live close, but try to get there 3-4 times a year. Everyone knows Canoe has a fabulous setting on the river, amazing view. We have never had a bad food or wait staff experience here. However, we had a near perfect food and staff experience during our last visit for lunch. The Wagyu Pastrami sandwich was AMAZING. I hope it will become a regular menu item. The crispy shrimp salad is consistently delicious, as is the smoked salmon, goat cheese appetizer. Hopefully the popcorn sundae never goes away! James, our server, was the highlight of the experience this time. He was knowledgeable, friendly and provided the perfect amount of attentiveness to put our experience over the top. Cheers to James!!!
Great experience, a little too loud.
Canoe always has very fine ambiance, well trained and professional staff, a lovely and convenient setting, and provides an opportunity to truly focus on my dining companions. Like any really good restaurant should, it allows me to forget worrying about having to manage distractions which may arise elsewhere and focus on hosting a successful social gathering. With very good food and drink. Every time, year after year.
Great experience! We will definitely be going back.
Food was very good. Loved my table. Service was excellent, one of the best waiters that I have ever had at Canoe.
Great all around.
It was for 4 birthdays spread over time. Would of been nice if they comped our dessert or something but I guess we didn’t spend enough.
We always have a great time at Canoe. The food is really good and your wait staff is stellar. Yesterday there was some sort of "event" which tied up valet parking but I think they were doing a really good job considering the volume! We'll definitely be back.
Three large scones were tasteless and unappetizing. French toast arrived cool (not warm), potatoes seemed dumped on plate (poor presenation), -eggs appeared swimming on butter, unappealing. She crab soup had little crab meat in it. Brunch seemed to lack the style and elegance of past experiences (which have been many)
the attention is very nice, the food is very different from what one is used to eating this delicious, and the delicious dessert and the place is very cozy we enjoy very much, thank you very much
We come to Atalanta once a year and always eat at our favorite place which is Canoe-
Outstanding in every way! New Fall menu is out.....had the trout....delicious. Service was excellent.
My Pops had an 83rd birthday and was snowbird-ing his way thru Atlanta from Michigan back to Florida.
We had drinks outside (maybe wish there were waiters out there ... the terrain was difficult to navigate with martinis), then had a great table by the window inside and AMAZING food and service.
My husband and I literally had not been there in 20 years and our kids (who are now adults) had never been. I’m an avid Callie and Jeff Dauler fan and they’d posted a few times about it (and their Canoe BFF!) so I have had it on my list to try again!
It did NOT disappoint.
Was a favorite back in the day and will be a fave again! CONGRATS to Canoe for staying so awesome after sooo many years in a super competitive restaurant scene.
I just apologize that I wasn’t a more faithful follower!! 😃
We took our girls for our older's 12th birthday and everything was just fantastic from the bread to the appetizers (we had the crab cake and the calamari--a must try as it is not the typical with marinara) to the entrees. Our birthday girl had the braised rabbit and raved about it. Our younger daughter had the trout and "destroyed" it as she loves fish. My husband had the duck which is always good and my swordfish was just delicious. And the desserts were super yummy too. To top it off, our waiter Alvin was super attentive! Thank you for a great night for our daughter!
So far the best dining experience I ever had. Staff was pleasant and attentive, food was delicious, atmosphere is perfect.
Excellent location overlooking the river !
Canoe is a well established upscale restaurant. Food is usually excellent. Service at table is always very good. Some "rules" are not conducive to kindness. For example, Canoe staff will not seat a person until all the party is present, and are at times curse about this. Therefore, when 20 minutes early due to unexpected good traffic conditions a patron cannot sit at the table, have a cup of coffee, tea or wine while waiting on a guest. Rather, one is forced to sit in a most uncomfortable and dark bar. This policy should change particularly for small parties, and especially weekdays at lunch. That said, the restaurant remains a good one overall.
Great experience for our friends bd
Great setting for outdoor dining on the patio, when the weather is good. Had to deal with some flies though. Food and service is great.
My first time at Canoe and let me tell you... it was an unforGETTABLE experience. The food was amazing. The staff was professional. The view of the river was breathtaking. I will be back again :-)
A little seasoning on the food
Great as always. Super service. Outstanding food. Perfect ambiance.
It was my friends birthday and we sat outside and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Service was wonderful and our salads were delicious
I love canoe. I went to celebrate my birthday!!!
Fabulous experience! Service was superior! Food, delicious.... I cant wait to go back!
CANOE brunch is always my favorite~!!
View is wonderful and I love their breads!!! so good!!!
Order "Some of each" basket LARGE, so you can taste all of breads.
IF you have left over, take all with you.
Had a wonderful brunch at Canoe -- sat at the window overlooking the river. The food was delicious and service impeccable!
Brunch menu was great - we had the smoked salmon app, a mixed green salad, the french toast and the smoked salmon benedict. We also had the cocktail that was like a bellini but with apricot, and everything was excellent!!
Always the perfect place for a special occasion. Love the brunch!
Canoe was excellent for a small birthday celebration. Michelle provided great service and was very attentive. We would recommend Canoe as well as revisit.
They have a lovely outside to grab a drink and walk around or sit and watch the river. Highly recommend to do that prior to your reservation time. The waitress was very thorough with the menu and specials and wine recommendations. She provided a relaxing experience and helped with any questions we had. Love bringing family or friends to Canoe with the overall experience it provides and food being amazing.
Wonderful service, food, and ambiance. Our server, Katie, was phenomenal. Will be returning.
Everything was perfect except the entree menu need more.
Overall, I thought the experience was good, but nothing stood out as a wow! The swordfish dish was relatively bland and the calamari salad had very little calamari. The pork chop was very moist and flavorful. And the heirloom tomato salad, which was a special, was very good and fresh! While we made note of it being a birthday celebration, the dessert came out and didn’t have Happy Birthday written on the plate, as they told us it would. Not sure we would return when visiting Atlanta again.
Carrie and Amber were wonderful—attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu!
Outstanding service, great explanation of menu items. You could simplify some items so the flavor of the main comes through loud and clear. Overall very good ....
The evening started outdoors at the bar. The bartenders were both Excellent! As we moved inside our Hostess Ms. Eva E. Hutto was great. We were seated at table #50 and waited on hand and foot by Mr. Kevin Cornish, and Ms. Michelle Tucker. All three individuals performed their duties A+.
The night was perfect. Everyone from Valet to the Hostesses to the Waiter and Servers provided excellent customer service. We felt welcomed and received celebratory salutations for my boyfriend's birthday. We enjoyed all of the recommendation - especially the duck pot pie and trout. I specifically made this reservation because my boyfriend really enjoys the kangaroo loin - which was delicious as before. The ambiance was romantic and quiet outside on the patio throughout the evening. We love dining at Canoe for lunch and dinner. Up next - brunch!
Always a great experience at Canoe! Awesome service, delicious food, and beautiful setting.
I took a customer to Canoe for dinner. We sat outside and the evening was great. Food, ambiance etc.....all wonderful. Would definitely recommend Canoe!
