The drink were great. The service and ambiance was good. The food was not great. Had the veggie burger which was very dry and tasteless. My hubby had a beef burger and it too fell flat on taste.

We were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary. It really was perfect - not a lot of noise, really good food and great service. It had been quite a while since we were there and we appreciated the free parking in front and the view of the water. My husband had the schnitzel and I had the veggie burger. We each had a beer too. We were both really full but satisfied with the flavour and local ingredients. Thanks for a great evening!

There was a mixup with our reservation due to a computer glitch. We were supposed to have a table for 6, not 4, but on a very busy evening they worked to accommodate us after all.

I came to Victoria for the weekend to visit my kids who attend university there.. the food was good, a little pricey and it would be nice if they had wine specials. All in all it was a good experience.

Overall, Canoe was a bit of a disappointment in terms of food. The drinks were good, as was the ambience, but the food detracted from the experience overall.

Canoe is a great spot for casual dinning / night out with friends. Great beer, decent service, pub food is above average.

Lovely flower arrrangements on table for Valentines Day. Music a little Euro pop crappy but meal was good, if not a little salty.

Canoe brew pub is an excellent downtown bar and restaurant, serving excellent craft beers and with a small but satisfactory wine selection. The dinner menu is also small but has a good variety. One thing to avoid - their Rosti. This Swiss German version of hash browns is nothing close to what it is supposed to be like. Otherwise the food was very good and the service was excellent.

The service was friendly and quick. My husband and I shared a fish and chips plate and an appetizer of mussels. The mussels were good--prepared with coconut milk and slightly spicy. The fish was good but not a great value--the large order came with two pieces.

Great service but food and beer was nothing special. We chose Canoe because it was kid friendly. The patio looked great but other then sensonal patio I probably won't be back.

Service was awesome for our group of 10. Love the space upstairs for bigger groups! Food is always yummy.
