The view is beautiful, the food out of this world, and the staff went above and beyond to serve us. Absolutely one of the best dining experiences I've had.

The service is fantastic. We have been to many restaurants and this one give us the best service ever. The food is superior but would not break your bank. The scenery is beautiful. We had window seats and best view without worry about bugs.

Overall 5food service ambience

One of the BEST and most unique restaurants in Atlanta. Located right on the river with lots of gardens and an outdoor bar, this place is the perfect spot for a nice dinner out, especially if the weather is nice. A+ environment. Food is a B+, most dishes are great, some are just good. Very upscale bar area with a great wine selection. Service is usually spot-on A+. Love this place overall.

A wonderful dining experience! Features we particularly enjoyed: kangaroo appetizer was a fun treat with a unique taste, drinks were very well prepared and filled to the glass brim, duck was as good as the server said it would be, and desserts were delicious (e.g., popcorn sundae). We went down to the river shore for an after-dinner drink, which capped a great evening. Sole disappointment: rabbit is a tradition at Canoe, but not as good as hoped.

OMG booked without ever having been there and only recommendations online....soooo great. It was a Tuesday and place was 'hopping' - the tables, the bar, the outside spaces - even with sporadic rain.
Just the best! Creative meals - and all desserts are only $9 so you can go crazy - and should. Everyone seemed to be having the best time. So scenic alongside a river. Highly recommend!

not as good as on our previous visits. Disappointed in the food, and dessert was a tiny cookie. We have gone to Canoe for the past 14 yrs, especially for special occasions and entertaining guests. However, after this last experience, we are reluctant to choose Canoe.

As always, everything was excellent. Hannah snagged us a table on the patio and refused to take credit for the beautiful weather. We are bummed about the fact that we will no longer be able to reserve a table there through Open Table. Canoe is going with a different reservation system.

It was a lovely humidity-free Atlanta evening and I really looked forward to dinner at Canoe with my friend who was in town from Houston. Since my last visit, several years ago was memorable, I had expected the same on this occasion. Unfortunately, the overall dining experience (food and decor) seemed tired, dated and lack-luster. Enthusiastic servers were a positive note, however.

Asked if we could be seated outside for the birthday girl, told sorry we can't accommodate 8 outside. Taken to wrong table and then asked to walk to the other side of the restaurant, never offered we could put you at two tables of four next to each other...that would have been nice. Food awesome as always! Always worth the trip.

The food was mediocre and expensive. We went to celebrate a birthday and they don't even comp a desert (A stupid business decision, as we would never celebrate there again). The deserts were terrible - just pure sugar in various forms. No flavor. The rabbit was stringy and tasteless and the salmon too salty to eat. It is a lovely setting, great breads and nice staff, but for $100+ a couple, it was really quite awful.

We go to Canoe at least once a month and usually have a drink or two in the lounge and have some oysters. My lamb was good, but not memorable; the red snapper was very good; the trout was very good. We really enjoy dining at Canoe but the entrees seem to have a diminished quality.

It was my first time dining at Canoe. My husband had eaten there once before for business and really liked it. We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary and we were not disappointed! Evan, our server, did a fabulous job and even came outside to take our photo. On the way out we made a reservation for Christmas Eve! We will be back and hopefully before then!
