Critically acclaimed to be among Canada’s best restaurants, Canoe's unique location high atop the TD Bank Tower affords a breathtaking view of the city and Lake Ontario. The design, originally conceptualized by noted designers Yabu Pushelberg and most recently refreshed by Anacleto Design, is clean and simple, yet absolutely stylish - a brilliant reflection of Canada's rich raw environment. That same brilliance is captured through the flavours and textures of Chef John Horne's inspired regional Canadian cuisine. The menu showcases the freshest and finest Canadian fish, game and produce, as well as an outstanding selection of Canadian vintages. "All that is Canadian defines Canoe." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

Wonderful staff and service and absolutely amazing food! The Quebec Stag was a sight to behold. It being on the 56th floor with amazing views of the Toronto Skyline was an added bonus :)

It is expensive but a nice place to consider if you are trying to impress someone with good food, good service and great views. We were there at lunch - not really an intimate setting but might be different at night.

The setting at Canoe is beautiful and the food was great. We ordered the tasting menu as we found the a la carte menu to be quite challenging and did not want to commit to just one dish. There were a couple of dishes that we're mediocre but for the most part, the food was excellent and the service was great.

Canoe has a magical view and a long history at this location. I enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients and thoughtful service. For my taste I found the entrees a bit over complicated though delicious. I would return if they were offering diners some options of slightly less nuanced entrees.

We went for my wife’s birthday. Had a great time. The service was wonderful. Really appreciated bringing out a small dessert saying happy birthday. I enjoyed the food but much of what I ate from app, main to dessert was deconstructed so sometimes it was difficult to tell what I was eating. Presentation was very professional and what you expect from Canoe. Thanks for overall enjoyable experience.

This was our first time there. Amazing views, esp as it was a clear day. I had the Halibut --- nice flavours, a good portion. The 'chocolate cake' dessert dish was a deconstructed delicacy and definitely recommend! Attention to detail with a view, adds up, but it was worth it!

This was my second visit to Canoe. On my first visit I had one of the best meals I have ever had. Unfortunately I can't say that about the second visit. Food was okay, but not great. Dessert was poor. Wine and tea were excellent. I should have left it at once in a lifetime. Disappointing, especially at the price.
