The room and setting are very attractive. The food was good but both dishes we had seemed oddly sweet. Especially the special of the night monk fish wrapped in bacon.

Location and venue just beautiful!! Spicy Bloody Mary was fabulous!!
Our waitress was very friendly but not efficient, 2 mistakes on food ordered , delayed delivery of one entree. Food was delicious! We will be back. The duck/beef burger was a big hit!!

I found out about Canoe by doing a search on-line. I wanted to take my wife out somewhere different to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. The entire staff was very friendly and professional and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed walking along the nature preserve path and enjoyed viewing the Chattahoochee River as well. Scott our server, also helped capture the mood by taking a few snapshots of us enjoying the moment. It made for a very relaxing and enjoyable evening. Thank you for the experience.

What a wonderful dinner! We started out with your smoked salmon appetizer. Excellent! It was the perfect portion for us to share. My husband ordered the scallop special and I had the baked cod. Both were delicious. Who would've thought of basil whipped potatoes?! We happened to mention we were celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary. Our server brought us out a really cute ice cream dessert with the words Happy Anniversary spelled out in chocolate sauce! We need to come back soon so we can go outside afterword for a drink by the river. We've never been disappointed at Canoe.

This was the perfect place to close out a business trip with friends/co-workers which was held in downtown Atlanta. It was SO worth the short drive outside the hustle & bustle crowds to the most peaceful setting. We arrived a bit early, so we enjoyed getting a drink from the outside bar and sitting on the bank of the Chattahoochee River. We chose to dine outdoors under the covered porch (once again with the view of the river). The service was fabulous and the food outstanding. Every course was a delight and a surprise due to its uniqueness and presentation. There's no doubt I'd highly recommend Canoe. Only wish that we lived closer to it so that it could be more frequented by us. (Definitely recommend making reservations.)

Menu changes to add variety and also has specials each night. Good seating though gets very noisy.
Excellent service.

We had an early reservation, which I loved. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and view. Our server was excellent. She was helpful with wine selection and was great at helping me figure out which item to choose for dinner. Our food was spaced out, allowing our bellies to rest, which I appreciated.
Just a heads up when eating outside... there are bees and bugs, and they are not afraid to land on you, your table or your food. This didn't bother us at all, but for those who it would, I suggest that you choose to dine inside.
Food was cooked to perfection. I would recommend anyone to eat here.

Such a beautiful place for a celebratory meal. Highly recommend if you have never been there. The food is excellent and the waitstaff is well trained. Definitely come early to enjoy a drink by the river. Leave the high heels though... the grounds are hard to walk in them and the inside tiling can make it interesting. I’d opt for more comfortable dress.

Canoe is always great for a special occasion. Their appetizers are very shareable and you gets lots of good food with the entrees (I always have to bring some home).

My only frustrating moment with this current visit, was that upon arrival, we were seated in the main dining room. I had made a note that we were coming for a birthday on the reservation and wanted to be seated on the patio. The hosting team was kind enough, but they told us we would have to wait 30 minutes after our reservation to sit on the patio. This was a Wednesday night, btw.

I don't know-- i just thought since it was a birthday, we would have felt a little more 'special'? The host would have clearly seen the disappointed look on my face and the slight irritation (I tried to keep it in check), when we were informed that we should take the dining room table, because guests can't make a reservation online for the patio and there would be a 30min wait if we didn't take the dining room table etc.

On a Wednesday night, the main dining room is filled with corporate/business types-- the ambiance didn't feel right at all for a romantic birthday celebration for two. So I begrudgingly sat down at the 2-top table inside (which was closest to the bar, right by the main walkway that lead to the patio, no privacy, and the booth felt very tight i.e. table too close to me while sitting in the booth. I felt squished). But after a few minutes, my boyfriend could tell this table wasn't going to sit well with me. So we got up and went back to the host stand to let them know we would wait for a patio table.

The wait only ended up taking 10min. But I was a little embarrassed as this was a surprise birthday dinner for the boyfriend and I wanted everything to go more smoothly upon arrival. Other than that snafu, everything was good. Can't complain.

The ambiance is amazing. I love sitting at the bar near the river. I would prefer brunch over dinner, but’s that’s just my personal preference.
