Contemporary Canadian
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.

PLEASE NOTE: After careful consideration, our team has decided not to participate in this year’s Summerlicious program. Since reopening after a series of devastating lockdowns, we have continued to navigate industry challenges that would hinder our ability in delivering the best Summerlicious experience possible for our guests. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your continued support.

    Overall it was enjoyable and would definitely come back but what’s disappointing was the seating. They decided to place me and my partner at a chefs rail when I requested to be sit at windows table.

    We ordered the surf and turf, when the food came the server didn't known what cut was who's and it went back to the kitchen, when the meat came back, it was at best room temperature. We asked a simple question when the food came, "which one is the medium rare cut" and they didn't know, as a result paid the price.

    Fantastic cocktails and creative food selections, and the stunning view to top it off. I started with the bison tartare, then crispy pork jowl, Gouda, and rhubarb terrine for dessert. Server recommended wine accompaniments. Loved watching the planes land at Billy Bishop Airport on Toronto Island.

    Pretty disappointing, had the tasting menu a couple of highlights, beef fish tartare was good but the main fish halibut was overcooked and dry and the veal sausage dish was so overly salted barely edible. All a bit clumsy really.

    I saw some review who commented you paid for the view at Canoe. I agree but not totally, cos the food was good, presented nicely with thoughts, complimented with the innovative combination of ingredients and sauce, in the tasting menu, not 8 out of 8 dishes made a "wow" response, it was pleasant and refreshing overall. Service was excellent from our server and the sommelier. The view was beautiful throughout the dinner. The value was good, we will likely return on our next trip to Toronto.

    food seems a bit salty. one of my dishes was really hard to intake due to salty taste and waiter is really kind to have chef prepare another dish to replace. I don't recommend to pick tasting menu anymore due to the taste and cost for each, very pricy. Service and atmosphere are good though, but rather choose a la carte next time if revisit

    This was just an incredible experience. While it is an expensive meal, the value is actually excellent in comparison to other tasting menus we have done. The experience of being able to watch the kitchen was fascinating. The chefs spoke with us throughout the meal and were interesting, informative and really engaging. The food was absolutely first grade. The dishes are quite intricate in at that they use a lot of ingredients and often in unconventional combinations, but the way they blend them together is simply fantastic. I can’t say enough about how good of meal it was. We would gladly do this again the next time we are in Toronto.

    What a brilliant evening with exciting food, excellent service and great atmosphere and view. The wagyu & swordfish alone is worth the visit as is the scallop app. The menu is so interesting and creative. Then there is the fab staff who really help make the evening entertaining including servers like Fred and Godwin, sommeliers like Billy and James (a new arrival). The whole team work together to make you feel valued and appreciated. Makes for such a fun experience.
