About Canoe Restaurant and Bar

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

Incredible restaurant. The tasting menu with wine pairing was absolutely amazing, and the service by our server Alex and the entire wait staff was world class. The whole experience was made even more unforgettable by the fact that this restaurant is located on the 54th floor, overlooking a breathtaking view of downtown Toronto. Completely blew us away! Thank you! Would go back in a heartbeat!

Food is decent , service is excellent , view and ambiance - can check those boxes too but the portions are ridiculously small (verging on insulting) for what you pay. You will likely still be hungry when you leave . Would not go back for that reason.

Canoe is as good as it gets in Toronto: the cuisine, presentation, the service, the view, the noise level, the space. Very high prices, particularly wines, but understandable.

Is there an option to leave a review with more than 5 stars? If it was possible, I would give Canoe 10 stars.

Everything about this restaurant was fabulous, the service, the view, the hand-crafted cocktails, the food, the ambience.

Our favorite dishes, everything we ordered!! Best halibut ever and the chocolate cake melted in my mouth.

This is hands down one of my top 5 restaurants.

If you’re in Toronto, this is a must-go restaurant.

The portions were extremely disappointing, not to mention the ridiculously overpriced food. The kale salad tasted absolutely terrible. The Atlantic halibut tasted amazing but it was the size of a golf ball. The desert was great but overall we left slightly disappointed at the portion sizes and prices.

I would say the service at Canoe has not been as good as before since the minimum wage of Ontario was raised. We did not feel welcomed, our server looked impatient while we were waiting for our friend who’s late, nobody had ever explained the dipping for the bread......the food is about average, which reminds me that Canoe used to be one of the top restaurants in Toronto.

Very disappointed indeed(I went there on Valentine’s day and the service was even worse)!

Canoe never disappoints. Fine dining at its best! Great service from Jesus and nice wine presentation from David (Sommelier). Amazing views from high atop this vibrant city. Although, next time we will sit at the kitchen bar and watch the magic unfold behind the scene.
Honourable mention for the parking validation and free electric vehicle charging stations. Thank you for a wonderful date night.

Last day of winterliscious and they were so gracious and classy. Helpful, efficient, even though we were paying so little and weren’t regulars. The food was exquisite in presentation and taste. The portions were modest but I would always prefer to leave satisfied rather than stuffed. I’m coming back!

The food at Canoe is amazing. I had vegetarian lasagna and wow it was so delicious. The service was bad for a place like Canoe. Some of the staff was nice but the person who was assigned to our table was not attentive. I had to ask for my bill from another waitstaff. Also, the hostess was not very nice or warm. I have been to many O&B restaurants but this was the worst service I ever had.

I went during Winterlicious. The food was excellent (my spare ribs was tender and doused with a very tasty sauce). Each dish was described personally by staff as it arrived. The view of Lake Ontario, the Toronto Islands and Billy Bishop Airport is spectacular. The service was attentive and friendly, making my party feel comfortable. When they found out it was my birthday, a candle and a "Happy Birthday" piece of cake arrived.

Overall food and service were good but it’s kind of a cookie-cutter atmosphere and you feel like you’re stuffed in like livestock. Not an intimate setting for a romantic evening if that’s what you’re looking for.

The host and our waiter was extremely friendly. He really took care of my dietary restrictions. There was complimentary whole wheat pumpkin bread with chickpea hummus spread. I had whole wheat allergies so they kindly changed it to corn bread with butter. During the winterlious, we tried all their drinks and our favourite is mago mule non alcoholic. Our starters were good, we had salmon and some paste substance salad. The main course, was really good for the pork dish at least, not a fan of how they cooked the short ribs. When i hear short ribs, i think about a rack but the short ribs that was served didn't look anything like i imagined. It was not bad, but it wasn't excellent. And the dessert was "meh", my pear dish possibly costed the restaurant like $1.50 for ingredients and labour to make. Overall good food and service. Dessert needs improvement big time.

The view from 54the floor of TD Dominion centre is incredible. We were seated on the west end of the restaurant with an unblocked view of CN Tower. The kitchen is open style and looking at the chefs preparing the dishes in an orderly fashion while eating your meal is a very interesting experience.

We visited Canoe during Winterlicious and service was great. I asked about one of the ingredients in a cocktail and 2 minutes later the waiter was back with a sample to have me try it out! The food was delicious however the dessert were a little bit disappointing, as everyone at our table left there plate almost full. Maybe the choice of the desserts was not as interesting for us, as the waiter explained there was much more choice in the normal menu.

And WOW, this pumpkin chick pea bread spread was AMAZING!!!

My boyfriend and I dined here for dinner during the Witerlicious event and it was also our first time. Overall, it was a good experience.

Since I'm still new in Toronto, I was excited to try Canoe 'cos I've been seeing scenic pictures from people who went here like the Toronto landscape at night including CN Tower. Unfortunately, our table wasn't near the windows so I guess you should request that ahead.

The taste of the food wasn't that memorable but well-presented. Maybe, it was just because of the Winterlicious event. Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere had a fine-dining touch during dinner time, which was a nice change for our usual casual dinner dates. However, it wasn't that peaceful since it was packed during the event.
