We were celebrating our 48th anniversary and Canoe was a perfect restaurant to celebrate!
The hostess selected a perfect table for us that was out side and away from a lot of noise. We had a wonderful server. She was very attentive and really seemed to want to make our experience special.
The food was outstanding, the staff was knowledgeable, personable and attentive! We look forward to celebrating at Canoe next year!
Thank you

Make sure to make reservations a couple weeks in advance as the restaurant is in high demand. The evening of we were running a little late, but called to let them know. The hostess was extremely polite about it. Our waitress Miranda was extremely kind and knowledgeable, greeting us by name. She gave us a great introduction to the evening, provided details about each plate and gave honest opinions that helped us choose the best dinner for the evening. We completed our dinner with a nice Birthday gesture from the restaurant.

My husband and I had been for dinner on a date night, but we wanted to take his parents and our son for a special anniversary brunch on Sunday. I wasn't sure how or if they would accomodate a toddler, but I was overjoyed at the exceptional service that once again goes above and beyond to make it a special meal for everyone. They were even accommodating and considerate of my child's food allergy. We all enjoyed walking along the river and looking at the gardens afterwards. Thank you, Canoe!

Kind of underwhelming. I had heard such great things, the charcuterie board was not good, our server was kind of rude and didn’t take our drink orders for like 10 minutes.

Everything was lovely from the attentive and personal service to our wonderful lunch. At our servers recommendation, we started with the smoked salmon, which has the most amazing haystack light and crispy latke as a bed. We tried the chicken sandwich and the cod foe lunch which were both perfect. Although full, we had to sample the signature ice cream and caramel popcorn dessert and were not disappointed. The only sad note was our table, which was back by the kitchen inside. We could see the potential for an even better experience with the patio and outside tables, but we did do get that experience this time. We highly recommend this restaurant.

There are so many ways they accommodated our needy party - from adding another setting for a last minute guest, to making a meal gluten-free, to switching a meal for an oopsy orderer, to taking a group photo, to separating the checks.

Friendly staffs. Molly, our server, was great. The appetizers, Smoked Salmon and Calamari, were flavorful and delicious. The Roasted Springer Mountain Chicken was okay, nothing special. Slow Braised Rabbit with Truffle Mushroom and Goat Cheese Ravioli was tasty. Tres Leches Cake (pink peppercorn panna cotta with raspberry lemon ice cream) is one of the best desserts I have eaten. It’s light and not overwhelming sweet.

The garden with the view of the river was well maintained and beautiful.

We were at Canoe for a casual business dinner and our meal was excellent. The red snapper and risotto was fresh and very flavorful. I would highly recommend it. The lamb also received high praise. The onion soup and heirloom tomato salad were excellent. The calamari and the crawfish/shrimp cake were just ok but still enjoyable. Overall, our meal, service and ambience were perfect. I would highly recommend Canoe for a nice dinner out!

Gem of a restaurant. One of a kind scenery, excellent food choices cooked perfectly, and all around great service. Definitely will return again and try to sit outside. The garden on the river they have in the back is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for a wonderful ending to our visit!

As always, we had an amazing time at Canoe. We always try to go at least once a year and while COVID-19 kept us from going last year, this year was amazing. Christopher was an amazing waiter and would highly recommend asking for him anytime!

This was a belated birthday brunch with a couple friends and everything was excellent. Chris was our server. He was personable and knowledgeable about the menu and gave recommendations. After going outside to look at the river we ended up staying a couple hours and had dinner as well! My day at Canoe was excellent! I'm sorry it took me so long to come. The hose smoked salmon is delicious along with the She crab soup!

My friend and I go to Canoe as a tradition to celebrate our birthdays. The beauty of the garden and view of the river make for a lovely atmosphere. The server we had was very attentive, although he was not wearing a mask. Because of the current surge in the Covid Delta variant, that was dangerous and it made us uncomfortable.
The food as always was mediocre at best. It often sits too long in the back kitchen and comes out cold. This time we both ordered salads, which was not expected to be hot. However, the salad was drenched in dressing, not lightly coated as I would prefer. I’ll know next time to order the dressing on the side.
I think like most others, we go back for the ambiance and overlook the disappointing food.

The food pairings seemed simple, but the flavors and ingredients were complex and delicious. Our server Patricia was amazing. You just could see the restaurant was run very well. Every staff member had a smile on their face and they too seemed to be enjoying being at Canoe! We will definitely be back.

We made our reservation 4 months in advance and they could not accomodate our seating request. We did not say anything. Just a bit disappointed considering it was our 33rd anniversary. We were sat at a middle table in the middle of the restaurant. Not very romantic at all.
