Duck burger was lackluster. The silver dollar sized crab cake appetizer was mediocre. The rainbow trout was great but the crab ravioli was undercooked. I have dined at Canoe several times and this has been the most disappointing visit. Hopefully they can get back to the quality I am accustomed to when dining there.

Have been there several times, a cornerstone each time of our restaurant experience in Atlanta. Attentative and professional service (This time it was Debra), and fabulous food. To add a wonderful location at the Chattahoochee with outdoor space and bar. If not done yet, worth to explore!

We went for brunch now that they are open again. We always get the basket of fresh baked pastries. The Georgia Pecan Sticky Buns melt in your mouth. You want to make sure you try these if you've never been. My husband and I both had salmon which was seared to perfection. Looking forward to our next visit.

We have been several time for dinner and love Canoe. This was our first time going for brunch, and we were not disappointed. It was a beautiful day, the food was amazing, and the service was incredible. I took family from out of town and everyone loved it. I definitely recommend Canoe to anyone looking for an amazing experience!

We have dined here many times over many years and even understanding the conditions with the recent reopening due to the pandemic, the restaurant team was no where near their typical high standards.

Out experience at Canoe was one of the best! It an anniversary and birthday celebration and they exceeded our expectations. Because I work in health care I have to take social distancing very seriously and they were able to accommodate us far away from other parties and I felt completely comfortable. It was our first experience dining out of quarantine and it was amazing. Food wonderful, great wine, awesome service and views were stunning. I appreciate everything and will be back again for another special occasion.

Conducted a lunch meeting at Canoe on a Thursday..... not overly crowded but moderate activity..... was able to hold conversations at normal levels and appreciated the scenery and setting for conducting business. Food was excellent and service was excellent as usual.

Great choice for our 40th anniversary dinner. The food was all amazing but the Kangaroo appetizer barely nudged out the Halibut and Filet for top spot.

Food is always good here as well as service... Menu is currently a bit limited due to situation in the country and world. Food is a bit pricy depending on what you order.

We, also, had a slight issue with the bill and a gift card that was slightly troublesome, but luckily the situation was resolved by the manager.

My boyfriend and I celebrated his graduation from law school, and we had a phenomenal time! Even though we were reluctant to try some of the more “interesting” options on the menu, our exceptional server, Julia, reassured us that we wouldn’t be disappointed and provided great recommendations. Thanks to Julia and the other members of the Canoe family, we will cherish this dining experience forever! We are anxiously anticipating our next visit here!

Our waitress and the service we received was out of this world. Absolute perfection. The food overall was very good. Food was 4 due to salmon appetizer flavor profile was overpowering with the cheese edge you could barely taste the salmon. Duck was great, cooked to perfection. Kangaroo was good, I don't typically enjoy rare, but this was savory.

The food was great, the service was awesome, but the table nearest me had some very loud talkers who were annoying. I know way too much about their business. Had there been more tables of folks talking they might have blended into the background a bit, but since the place was so empty I was really distracted from the peaceful setting.

I'll go back, though.
