As has always been the case, the food, service and relaxing atmosphere at Canoe was wonderful. Our family has Canoe on the short list of places where we have never had a bad meal. The dishes are so flavorful, the service is above board and the atmosphere always perfect. Highly recommended once again.

It was an incredible experience that we had for our first anniversary. They had "happy anniversary" printed at the top of the menu, which they let us keep as a piece of memorabilia. Our waitress, Melinda, was very knowledgeable of all aspects of the food and drink menu for the evening and made excellent suggestions for us. the ambiance was nice and intimate. I would recommend anyone to go and eat at Canoe for great food and a memorable experience. I look forward to our next visit.

Excellent restaurant. We go here for our anniversaries. Very nice and nice to splurge on your spouse on that special day! It's a good feeling to have the full experience of dining in an upscale restaurant with the attentiveness they give. Shy was out waitress and was easy to talk to and went out of her way to describe the dishes to help in our dining decisions. I'm sure we'll go again.

Bar service and Apps were great. Swordfish recommend by server was a little dry. but other than that he did a great job. Had to wait 30 min pass reservation time to be seated. We checked it at 7 pm for 8 pm reservation. Really enjoyed the indoor bar service.

The ambiance is great but loud. The salmon appetizers are great. The crab and shrimp one was bland. The menu must change seasonally. Nothing really jumped out out me for the prices so, I stuck with simple halibut. It was tasty. My server Brittany made the visit wonderful! Very pleasant and engaging. Be prepared to go deep in your pocket (book).

Tell them if it’s a special occasion and Canoe will make it more special for you. Wish we had the time to go out to the gardens. It was beautiful sitting by the window.

We LOVE canoe and it was an easy choice when we had guests from out of town coming in. I was so very disappointed w the experience on this occasion. We should have chosen a different table (but foolishly didnt). We were back in a corner and the server must have been specially chosen for this less-than-desirable area. It was SUPER slow, excuse ladened and on the verge of painful. I know it’s not the norm so we will be back. We need to have the bad taste removed before we can consider returning, however.

The perfect end to a day full of wedding planning! We were welcomed with open arms, and our waiter "Ave" made all of the right suggestions. The kangaroo appetizer was awesome. Also, don't skip on either the duck breast or the rabbit entrees.

The service was excellent. I have a ton of food sensitivities and my daughter is vegan and our waiter made sure our dietary needs were met. The food was absolutely delicious. It is definitely pricey, but for special occasions it was well worth it.

Went here to celebrate my client’s new home purchase in Ansley Park! Was disappointing not to be able to be outside but there was an hour wait. Food and service was absolutely outstanding! The only reason for the four stars for ambiance was the fact that they had the air conditioning on overdrive and despite complaints from ours and surrounding tables they couldn’t seem to get it under control. Yes so that made for a less than pleasant atmosphere.
