The view of the river was beautiful. The drinks were good. The kangaroo appetizer was really good. It was large enough to share. The rabbit and ravioli was really good. The steak and risotto looked very good. The free desert for celebrating with them was a nice touch. It was very quiet probably due to recent closings. It was nice to walk outside by the river after dinner. It was a beautiful night. The service was very good.

The Dining experience was excellent . The food was superb and presentation outstanding. Our waitress, JP, was thorough efficient funny and very informed on every course if she didn’t know she found out force she helped the dining experience to be even better!
Canoe never disappoints. I Took a friend who is very difficult to satisfy. She’s got allergies and gluten-free but yet she found everything she selected to be excellent! Thank you Canoe!

Wonderful meal and service. Staff was attentive and space was very clean. Had the octopus and crabcake to start, then the halibut and trout. Best trout I've ever eaten! Highly recommend this awesome restaurant.

The ambiance was outstanding - one of metro Atlanta’s finest. The food was beyond average. The menu seems unique and quality on paper; however, the food is average.

A very loud table crowd of 8 developed next to our table. Upon notifying staff that we couldn't hear one another we were offered another table. Very good response to our problem.

Monthly Lunch with A Friend

We had an excellent time. I was especially impressed with the Hostess who greeted us and accommodated us when we requested a booth. We both had Cod with lemon caper sauce served on a bed of spinach and mashed potatoes. On my last visit I had crab cakes and was disappointed. Everything about this visit was excellent!

We came to Canoe to celebrate my Birthday. We arrived 30 minutes early so we sat at the bar and had a drink. The bartender offered to transfer our tab to our table which was thoughtful. The hostess named Day was very gracious and gave us a table with a wonderful view of the river. We had a server who was training a new server named Grace. We loved Grace! She was very personable and sincere. The bread was amazing. The crab cake appetizer was good although the breading could have used some seasoning or maybe it should be made without breading.

For dinner my friend ordered the rabbit which I was adventurous enough to try. It was good, tasted like bbq chicken in my opinion. Definitely not something you’d order if you’re really hungry. I ordered the Bolognese. It was a great size portion for the price but it reminded me of something from childhood. It took a minute for it to click, then I remembered Hamburger Helper. All in all the experience was nice but the food doesn’t make me want to come back. I will say the Red Velvet Forest Cake is a hit! This should stay on the menu.

Our outstanding experience started with our very professional and friendly waitress, Leah. She answered all our questions and was prompt, courteous, and professional throughout our dining experience. Our meals were delicious and the atmosphere fantastic. Top notch staff, food, and experience all the way around. If Leah worked for me, I would make sure she was commended for her outstanding customer service. Thanks, we will be back.

The food was very limited and they didn’t have very basic options like lactose free milk or non dairy milk.

The burger tasted quite bad. Very disappointing for a place like Canoe.

Although service is amazing and so is the view. However they fail on delivering a 360 experience.

Canoe was highly recommended to us by many people. The food was decent, but the wait for our 8:30 p.m. reservation was ridiculously long! There is definitely not enough seating for people waiting around the hostess stand, and the bar was packed as well. I felt like we were waiting to be seated at a Red Lobster. When we were finally seated (30 minutes after our reservation time), the decibel level was unbearable! So loud, so noisy, drunk people everywhere, and the gentleman and his wife sitting next to us must have been some VIP because our server was practically on his lap most of the time. We tried several times to get his attention, but he was too busy kissing a**. With so many other restaurants in the area, would definitely NOT recommend this to friends and family from out of town!

An overall wonderful experience at a restaurant we somewhat frequent but that means 2-3 times per year. Food is solid 4 star though I would say it’s never been 5 star. Service and wine service is always excellent. Love the ambiance.

Very nice place. Delicious food, EXCELLENT service! ... the only negative I personally can share is, for my personal comfort level, it was a little on the noisy side, yet the place has a great vibe about it.

We had the best server, Justin, who was never pushy to move us along to turn the table, yet was incredibly attentive. He knew the menu well and responded to my wife's celiac disease concerns. He was also very knowledgeable about the wine choices. The food was great, but Justin made it a special experience...especially for the 'foodies' from San Francisco who we were entertaining.

Canoe has been in business for a long time. The food is always good and the service is attentive. On Tuesday, everything fit the normal pattern. The recommended special appetizer, Duck Croquets, was the best dish we sampled. Entrees were prepared to our request. It was a nice evening.

The restaurant was a little loud where we first sat down. It’s because all the tables were full in the corner downstairs. The air was also blowing quite hard to the point our menus were flying off the table. Once we were moved tables, the ambiance improved. The food, wine, and service was fantastic.

The waiter we had didn't represent the great service I usually get at Canoe. We were there for my cousins birthday and I had asked the host to tell our server to put a candle in her dessert. When he brought out the dessert he lit the candle right in front of her instead of before he got to the table. He also interrupted our conversation several times. He was tall with brown hair and a beard.
