I’ve been dining at Canoe since 1995 when the restaurant first opened. Canoe is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta.
The ambiance is incredibly warm. The food is always amazing. Feels like home.

This is our go to restaurant for any celebration. We would make it our regular choice if it wasn’t a 2 Hour drive away, but it is worth the drive. Food, service, and the gorgeous grounds make it as much of an experience as a meal.

Amazing meal, service, and atmosphere. We were particularly impressed by the wine and dessert options. It was also so nice sitting by the river for a few minutes after dinner. Will definitely be going back!

We really enjoyed our dinner and service was quick, however, we did feel our waiter was in a rush (which made us feel a bit rushed). A different waiter that brought our charcuterie tray left without telling us what was what (the charcuterie was just ok). Overall, though, we enjoyed the food and the fact that our waiter checked in a lot, but not too much. We'll be back!

Everything at Canoe was wonderful, as it always has been. After not eating at a restaurant for all of 2020, we chose Canoe as the first place we'd go. The special of the night, the short ribs, was exceptional. Our server, Patricia, was a hoot and we had a great time.

Everything was amazing, but I decided not to use the car valet (because COVID) and when I left there was a giant loogie someone spit on my car. driver window. I mean like a big ol' nasty one. I don't have any proof, but I believe it was the kid at the valet who didn't get my $3.

Canoe is consistently outstanding and this meal was no different. For apps, we ordered the smoked salmon over goat cheese and crispy potato pancakes (a long-running menu item) and a newer item, pork belly with mushrooms, kale and chicharron. Both were perfect.

For dinner, we ordered the rabbit with kale and raviolis (another long-running menu item) and a pork shank. Both were perfectly prepared and very flavorful.

For dessert, we had the chocolate grotto (tempered chocolate shell filled with mousse, salted caramel and pretzel dust) and an éclair with passion fruit and blackberry. Again, absolutely perfect.

Service from Destiny was excellent and the price was very fair. Canoe is a go-to for special occasions and is a must-eat if you have guests coming in from out of town.

Food wasn’t very good this go around, meat and cheese board is kind of boring, it needs more jams. I got the chicken and the sauce was not good. Lasted very andouille sausage like and it was very overpowering. The cheesecake was very good. Service was amazing

The birds, the river, the ambiance are superb. We ordered a Cobb salad and an Rugula salad with walnuts and it was delicious. The waiter was new and friendly and brought us three signatures desserts, which I highly recommend: chocolate creme brûlée, peanut butter cheese cake and a caramel ice cream Sundae with popcorn. Totally delicious. Canoe has been on the river for years, but our visit was particularly fabulous!

The service started out strong and fell off dramatically after we received our food that has lost some imagination. Nothing has changed much on the brunch menu since the last time I was there in August 2014.

When a new party arrived next to our booth, the server went to their table multiple times without checking on us. Our drinks were not replenished. Flagging her down became a game to see how fast I could talk. I began counting the repeated trips to the other table without even a glance at ours.

It just wasn’t the Canoe that I had bragged about to my date. The only saving grace was sitting by the river afterward. Otherwise, so disappointing.

My first time at Canoe and I was pleasantly surprised at the level of customer service at every point of interaction. All staff were polite and went over and beyond to make our dinning experience memorable. We celebrated my sister's birthday and the food was delicious! Staff wore masks and the booths had clear partitions to increase barriers between patrons. Definitely going back to sample more of the menu options (duck and beef burger with truffle fries are awesome).

Incredible experience from start to finish. Food was outstanding, the grounds next to the river always calming and quiet. Can’t wait for spring and summer when the grounds are at their best along with the outside bar. Whether a special occasion are just going out it truly will not disappoint!

As always , food and service are excellent. Today we came for brunch to celebrate my wife’s birthday and she absolutely loves the scones. When I made the appointment over a month ago, I requested to be seated on any table or booth facing to the river, unfortunately, we were seated all the way in the back. We ordered a large basket of scones and sticky buns and we took some of them home for later as desert, but when we opened our box, none of the delicious preserves were in the box so we had to eat them plain. Overall good experience, we will definitely come back for brunch or dinner, but not for any special occasion, we will go elsewhere to celebraste them.

We dined here for a Valentine's Day Brunch. The hostesses were very friendly and inviting. The atmosphere was perfect and had so many thoughtful touches. Our server, Destiny was great. Best service we have had in a while. The she-crab soup and smoked salmon benedict were delicious. Would definitely recommend and will certainly return. Best dining experience I have had in quite some time. Everything was perfect.

The food was INCREDIBLE. Not the same old same old you get everywhere else either. The salmon app was so good and you have to make sure you get a dessert while you’re there...We shared a chocolate grotto and practically scraped the plate clean.

Service may have been the best I’ve ever experienced at a restaurant. We don’t get out without our kids often and that made it feel extra special.

10/10 would recommend
