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 Solid Design Creative, 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 Ron McKinlay’s inspired regional Canadian cuisine.

    I took my son and his girlfriend for suffer to celebrate their graduations from University. We were given a fantastic window front table, service was fantastic, and so was the food!! To be honest… when making a reservation, and asked if it was a special occasion, and I said yes, I was expecting some sort of treat… Perhaps a special treat from the chef or a dessert… But rather there was just a card that said congratulations on our table. Actually… That was lovely and I didn’t mind buying a bottle of champagne to celebrate myself. All in all five stars all the way and we’ll be back.

    The four of us just didn’t like the food. We had the tasting menu and not one course was memorable. For $1000? We expected a lot more.

    Amazing view and inventive tasting menu beautifully presented- of course very pricey but on par with other restaurants of this calibre doing tasting menu style. For such a swank place they really need a sound quality/ music consultant- we heard the constant beat of canned “house music” all evening and it sounds exactly like a poorly loaded dishwasher where the blade is hitting atop large pan over and over and over

    Great food with great views. We ordered the tasting menus (vegetarian and regular). It was a little noisy so made it hard to talk but the service , food, and ambience were excellent. Definitely on the pricey side but overall a good experience.

    I have been coming to Canoe since 2003. This is the first time I was really disappointed by service. The food was edible but thats about it. It took more than 15 mins to get my latte after the dessert arrived.

    Food is good, service is all right. My table wasn’t ready despite my reservation so had to wait and they don’t do anything for special occasions besides putting a card on the table that says Happy Birthday, Anniversary, etc. Service was not bad, just not impressive for a restaurant of this price. The food is good but very expensive. Just dinner and dessert cost $70+. The best thing about this place remains the view of the city. Would come back for drinks just to admire the view.

    Great place, great view, great atmosphere. The service was very professional and the food came with the right intervals. We had the tasting menu with 8 courses. Felt the portion of each dish could be smaller. We got too full near the end and didn't feel like eating much. Would come back for the dinner menu.

    One of THE best meals/experiences I have had in a long time. We sat at the chef's rail and saw how a well-run, gourmet kitchen actually works. The head chef made several visits and chatted with us and our server, Kevin, answered every single question we had with patience and detail. I am gluten restricted and had requested the tasting menu ahead of time and they printed a gluten-free version for me to see what that would look like. Even so, we were still able to order a la carte, which we did. Out of the 7 different things we tasted, only one was not up to the high caliber of the others and even that, I didn't hate. Highly recommend this wonderful experience!

    Everything - from the food, to the service, to the view - was amazing. We went for my partner's birthday and there was a lovely happy birthday card on the table for her. We had the tasting menu - so good - and the staff were accommodating of allergies. It was an excellent once-in-a-lifetime, cross it off the bucket list, experience for us.

    Outstanding evening at Canoe. Wonderfully flavourful and interesting dining at its best. We have eaten at a number of Michelin star restaurants around the world and recognize top cuisine when we experience it. Can't understand why Canoe was not awarded the star they so obviously deserve but fortunately the results out of their kitchen show how they brilliantly represent the best of Canadian cooking.

    Not my first visit. Like so many high-end restaurants, it strays into the experimental and odd flavour profiles too often. There is no shame in having recognizable foods on the menu. Not every dish has to be cutting edge.
