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.

Dinner at Canoe is a memorable and deeply satisfying experience. All nine courses are a feast for the eyes and taste as wonderful as they look. Service is professional, attentive yet friendly. We enjoyed every minute of this memorable meal.

When I reserved bar seating I didn’t expect it to turn out in my favour. We were seated by the window with the beautiful view of Toronto island. But I think this was purposely saved for us because we were there for our anniversary. The food was beyond delicious, especially with the oyster and the scallop. Tasting menu was our only choice since the reopen after stage 3 but I was surprised we were so full after and the price was not too high $150/person
It was a great experience for both of us and we would come back another time maybe during winter to see the night view

We booked this restaurant for its great view but the table they seated us was at the very end corner right in front of the kitchen. It was very noisy and we couldn’t see anything other than the staff In the kitchen. We couldn’t ask the restaurant to change our table because of the COVID restrictions. The food and service was okay but I won’t go back to this restaurant.

Went here for dinner recently and the view was outstanding with the sunset. Overall I would say that the view and service are the reasons I would return. Wine with a view of the city was incredible Our server, Stephen, made the entire night so spectacular. He was attentive, social, polite, knowledgeable, and full of jokes that made our evening what it was. The food was very underwhelming for the price. $70 for the elk entree that was very under seasoned and fairly bland. The bone barrow beef dish as well was very bland. The first time we ordered that and the beef entree came cold, but the staff were quick to correct the order with a fresh plate. It was better but still overall not very flavourful or impressive. In the future I would likely return just for some wine and an app perhaps, the oysters fixins were great. Thank you Stephen for making our night so special!

Canoe is an institution! It’s never been as good as it is right now... after the renovation it seems Chef Ron and his team have been motivated to step up their game, especially with regards to their tasting menu. The food is absolutely superb! The service is on point, and the view... well the view is like no other in the city.

We’re so fortunate to make it for dinner before the recent shutdown, and look forward to returning when they’re permitted to reopen.

Thanks for a great night out!

It was alright. The view was obviously and by far the best part of it. The oysters were fresh , the meat and marrow of the beef filet was tender and good, and the desserts are great. The mushroom soup was good as well. Drinks were good and came from a captivating selection. I don't overall rate the food as overall spectacular, it was just good. Many of the flavours of dishes such as the Atlantic salmon main tasted quite mediocre. The vegetables and garnish didn't add much flavour, just added to blandness. Service was great as expected and again, the view made it worth it.

What a great way to break those pandemic blues. We had an outstanding meal with excellent service from Kevin. The view was brilliant but the food is even more so. This is cuisine that pushes boundaries and elevates from the same old: !!! Such an amazingly talented kitchen. Also - the health precautions taken at Canoe make you feel totally safe and secure. All the guests and staff were observing the provincial health guidelines and the distancing was perfect. Thank you for such a great evening and for making us feel so safe and special.
