Open-spaced restaurant with indoor/outdoor dining, all with an incomparable garden setting and river view. All-valet parking, top-notch service, excellent food. Perfect for a special occasion or just because you're special.

Very nice experience. Beautiful setting. Banquette cushions need replacing. Very saggy. Service started out very well but notably slowed. I think the server was over seated. Our reservation was at 11:00 am and we were seated promptly. The main disappointment was that the special-shrimp and grits- which was highly recommended by our server was sold out AFTER we ordered. Think your special should last a lot longer than that.

From start to finish it was amazing. Drinks at the bar next to the river was beautiful. Every course was delicious; the kangaroo and calamari appetizers especially! Their rabbit entree was also to die for. Absolutely the perfect date night or special occasion spot.

We came here for a business lunch and our waitress was incredible! Accommodated our timeframe and paced our lunch accordingly. We were sat in the outside patio area and it felt like we had a private room. Will definitely plan more lunches here!

Our first trip back from the Pandemic, where we have enjoyed Date Night in the old days. There are a few changes in the Charcuterie with more meat and less cheese, but all good. The service was impeccable with the waitress getting help on any questions she didn't know immediately. (Just what is "Salumi?")
We will be back.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. We arrived a little early so that we could have a drink and walk around the gardens in the back. The grounds were absolutely beautiful, and the atmosphere was perfect. We enjoyed the kangaroo appetizer, then I ordered the arugula salad and my husband had the rabbit. The flatbread was amazing as well. To end the night we celebrated with the Chocolate Grotto dessert which was spectacular. Overall, an amazing dining experience!

Our server, Faith, was exceptional. Certainly one of the best we've ever had. The appetizers and desserts were very good, but the entrees were under-seasoned. My rabbit was so bland that I kind of just ate around it. My partner's monkfish was also bland which is disappointing because fish is the easiest thing to salt. Would come back to try their brunch but I'll pass on any future dinner entrees. Also, I don't get the point of their having a valet station. The parking lot is right in front of the entrance. We just parked ourselves.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Canoe made the night very special, with personalized menu and "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate sauce on our dessert plate! The view out the window onto the garden and river was lovely and the food delicious. Highly recommend.

Our server, "Steven" was knowledgeable and delivered excellent suggestions and pairings. All of the staff went out of their way to be hospitable. The food was delicious. we enjoyed the salmon app, oysters, the rabbit entrée, and the fish special of the day, along with dessert. Everything was on point. The view from the patio was lovely, and we walked grounds and had a cocktail by the water afterwards. We look forward to dining at Canoe again!

We were celebrating Hugh school graduation. Our appointments was one hour before they close to set up for dinner service., so the restaurant was fairly quiet with a nice ambience. The lunch menu was not extensive but everyone a

It had been a while since I last ate at Canoe but recently joined some business contacts there for lunch. It was a perfect blend of upscale but relaxed atmosphere for an easy conversation. We sat on the back porch overlooking the river, the food was top notch as usual, and the weather cooperated for an overall great experience.

Another great "event" meal at our local go-to for celebrations. This time a retirement dinner. Wonderful evening, great food, and when we mentioned that the cold air was blowing on us, they quickly moved us to a table with a view! That's quality and respect.
