Canoe is one of my favorite places and the first in Atlanta we ventured back to after restaurants began opening back up.

Great choice for our 40th anniversary dinner. The food was all amazing but the Kangaroo appetizer barely nudged out the Halibut and Filet for top spot.

Food is always good here as well as service... Menu is currently a bit limited due to situation in the country and world. Food is a bit pricy depending on what you order.

We, also, had a slight issue with the bill and a gift card that was slightly troublesome, but luckily the situation was resolved by the manager.

My boyfriend and I celebrated his graduation from law school, and we had a phenomenal time! Even though we were reluctant to try some of the more “interesting” options on the menu, our exceptional server, Julia, reassured us that we wouldn’t be disappointed and provided great recommendations. Thanks to Julia and the other members of the Canoe family, we will cherish this dining experience forever! We are anxiously anticipating our next visit here!

Our waitress and the service we received was out of this world. Absolute perfection. The food overall was very good. Food was 4 due to salmon appetizer flavor profile was overpowering with the cheese edge you could barely taste the salmon. Duck was great, cooked to perfection. Kangaroo was good, I don't typically enjoy rare, but this was savory.

The food was great, the service was awesome, but the table nearest me had some very loud talkers who were annoying. I know way too much about their business. Had there been more tables of folks talking they might have blended into the background a bit, but since the place was so empty I was really distracted from the peaceful setting.

I'll go back, though.

Sitting outside with a view of the water is the way to go. Tables were spaces out and wait staff wore gloves and masks. The food was fabulous-smoked salmon app and halibut were delicious. The staff were very attentive. Grab a drink before dinner and enjoy the view.

Had anniversary dinner at canoe on their opening day and it was exceptional. I was with good reason hesitant to go out to a restaurant and eat there but between the outdoor space and the clear attention to detail the staff provided to safety of themselves and guests it was a beautiful time. The same level of attention they provide to service and food they did for creating safe conditions for all. I’m pleased to have been part of their opening and grateful for the staff and ownership for their dedication to their calling. Canoe is hands down the best place to feel like you’re part of ATLANTA and feel like you are thrown back in time on a lush, lazy river bank in the South. We are lucky to have you Canoe. And thank you to the servers, chefs and kitchen staff for your professionalism and care for what you do. It shined in a dark time brighter than your best days.

The view of the river was beautiful. The drinks were good. The kangaroo appetizer was really good. It was large enough to share. The rabbit and ravioli was really good. The steak and risotto looked very good. The free desert for celebrating with them was a nice touch. It was very quiet probably due to recent closings. It was nice to walk outside by the river after dinner. It was a beautiful night. The service was very good.

The Dining experience was excellent . The food was superb and presentation outstanding. Our waitress, JP, was thorough efficient funny and very informed on every course if she didn’t know she found out force she helped the dining experience to be even better!
Canoe never disappoints. I Took a friend who is very difficult to satisfy. She’s got allergies and gluten-free but yet she found everything she selected to be excellent! Thank you Canoe!

The ambiance was outstanding - one of metro Atlanta’s finest. The food was beyond average. The menu seems unique and quality on paper; however, the food is average.

A very loud table crowd of 8 developed next to our table. Upon notifying staff that we couldn't hear one another we were offered another table. Very good response to our problem.
