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

We celebrated my wife’s birthday at the Canoe restaurant, it was a wonderful lunch experience. The ambience was superb and the service was wonderful. Noise level was at minimum and that what we were looking for in a restaurant for special occasions. My wife preferred the lamb shoulder and I did the heritage chicken. We both enjoyed these dishes very much and would love to come again for dinner this time. We highly recommend it.

We had an outstanding experience. The food and attention to customer service was excellent. The staff recognized our special occasion. One minor suggestion for improvement would be faster delivery of the tasting menu items - the meal experience was three hours which was a bit long.

I booked a table by the window a week before. When I showed up they stuck me and company in a corner. When I asked them to honour my request the manager said they keep the window seats for regular customers! Was outrageous and was an embarrassment for me in front of my out of town guests! They handled that very badly I have to say!

We went for lunch. View is amazing from the 54th floor. Decor is nice. Noise level was low. I had the braised lamb shoulder. Delicious! Presentation: fantastic! My friends had the Arctic char. Also delicious. Deserts were chocolate forest stout cake and pumpkin cake. I haven’t seen and tasted anything like that. Super!

Never have I been more sure that the Michelin guide is missing out on Canada rather than Canada missing out on the Michelin guide. Easily equal to tasting menus at 2 Michelin star restaurants in New York. If I'm being really nitpicky I'd say that I might have preferred both a fish and a meat course instead of 2 desserts with a semi-savoury/semi-sweet dish to close the meal, and courses 4 and 5 were fairly similar. But! That being said, everything was absolutely delicious. Staff was great- wasn't feeling wine and they were happy to go through the cocktail and beer menu with me to find some pairings that would work (Highly recommend the Dill Pickle with oyster). Wonderful experience.

Our dinner selections were a joy to the eyes as well as the tastebuds! The presentation was unique and visually appealing, like the onion soup. Our serers were incredibly aware and able to serve silently unless required. Each time we have been to Canoe we have left very satisfied and felt that the price is worth the experience. We will certainly be back.

I came here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. It was a smooth and delightful experience from beginning to end. The view was amazing, overlooking the CN Tower and surrounding area. The menu was quite interesting and our server ‘Claude’ recommended the red stag and halibut for us as main and it was delicious. Do pair your plate with some wine and drinks, it definitely completes the taste. Claude was attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed our experience and will definitely come here again.
