Food was absolutely outstanding and the service was not far behind. Been here on many occasions and it never disappoints!
The staff was very nice and friendly. They took the time to explain every dish on the taste menu and answered any questions we had. Overall the food was amazing and I would recommend going to this place if you’re looking to celebrate something or just to enjoy a cute date.
Amazing meal and experience. Food was unreal and the service was exceptional! A welcome experience after not being able to dine for so long in the lockdown.
Amazing food, amazing waiter. Great service
Food was excellent, service was exceptional.
Some of the dishes were lukewarm at best and could have been hotter (temperature)
It was so nice to see so many people dining in this partial shutdown. Had a great time w an amazing woman , which made the experience memorable
Exquisite food and overall ambiance from the attentiveness of the staff to the artistry and attention to detail in the meal an experience sine qua non.
Amazing experience everyone should try at least once
Absolutely an amazing place to dine.. Food was amazing and the service was equally gratifying... the view of toronto while we dine made every moment worth it...our server Steven was simply amazing, warm and very friendly.. Surely a place to go when wanting share a dinner with that special one.
It was amazing! Great views, great food, great wine, they only have a tasting menu currently which suits me just fine as tasting menu is the best way to dine! 9 courses , incredible! I love a nice long tasting menu
Amazing restaurant, amazing experience and amazing views! Stephen and the whole wait staff made our experience unforgettable!
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
My fiancee and I were newly engaged and made a reservation. The service and food was impeccable. 100% worth every dollar. It’s an amazing experience to start our lives together.
The tasting menu at Canoe was fabulous. Great (and innovative) food and great service. Restaurant was very clean and wheelchair accessible.
The food was outstanding as was the presentation! The service was attentive and efficient! We will be back!
We had the tasting menu which was delightful and tasty. The service was wonderful and you can’t beat the view!
Great aesthetics and perfect date night restaurant. The food is artwork and tastes great!
Chef Ron McKinlay is world-class culinary artist. His creations are complex and fascinating. Confluence of science, art and craft. Do not miss!
Amazing dinner at Canoe, newly renovated dining room and it looks great
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.
Great food. Tasting menu was excellent. View was amazing.
The view is stunning, as the food! I love that they always manage to amaze me. I ate pork trotter and pork ear, and was nice! The dishes are beautiful too and the device delightful
We came here for a special 15 year wedding anniversary and had the best culinary experience of our lives ! The food experience was unreal .
The service from Jeff and Steven were beyond words . They made everything exceptionally more special .
A truly remarkable experience , worth every penny , and an evening we’ll never forget !!
Brilliant! What a tasting menu should be. Layers of flavours in every bite.
Great as always. Chef Ron outdid himself with a spectacular 9-course tasting menu. Rich, complex, artistic. The view is best in the city.
The tasting menu was amazing! And the view of the city was beautiful. Will definitely come back.
Wonderful experience - fabulous food, attentive service from people who seem interested in their job and full of helpful insights, gorgeous space. Thoroughly enjoyed it. My wallet is a lot lighter but it felt worth it.
Thank you very much for your kind feedback. We have passed along your kind words to our team and look forward to hosting you again in the future! --Canoe Management
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!
Excellent ambiance and service
An absolutely marvelous experience as per usual paired with scrumptious food and wine.
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!
Good afternoon, Logansquared. Thank you very much for your kind feedback. We genuinely appreciate your support and look forward to hosting you again in the future! --Canoe Management
Beautiful restaurant, amazing view of the city and the sunset. I was there with my boyfriend and it was one of the best restaurant experience I have ever had.
Good afternoon, Raysel. Thank you very much for your kind feedback. We genuinely appreciate your support. We look forward to hosting you again in the future! --Canoe Management
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.
We celebrated my son's 25th B'day. They did a great job with making him feel special.
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.
Food was excellent as always.
Service could have been a bit better. Server did not seem happy to be there and was not engaging.
Everything is wonderful, the staff, the food, the place, everything.
The food was not great as before.... disappointed...
My wife and I dined at Canoe to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. It was an amazing experience! From the stunning views to the delicious food, the top-notch service and the sophisticated but unpretentious ambience, this was an experience we will never forget. We look forward to coming back again soon the next time we have something else to celebrate.
Good afternoon, SebastienB. Thank you very much for your kind feedback and for choosing to celebrate your 5th wedding anniversary with us! --Canoe Management
1st dish was onion soup but my wife's onion was broken so most of the soup leaked to the rocks. I was very surprised no one ask us how was our dinner throughout the dinner, I see alot of staff standing around chatting but not alot of them working. The person works at the bar is super friendly and nice, not too sure it was his duty to serve us but he definitely saved the whole dining experience there.
Good afternoon Joshua. Thank you for sharing feedback about your recent visit to Canoe Restaurant & Bar. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the service. Could you please send us a note through our website's contact page, so we may speak with you directly? Thank you. --Canoe Management
