Whew. I’d go for the views alone! Such an breathtaking view and serene escape from the chaos of Atlanta. The food was impeccable, meat cooked to perfection, cocktails and dessert wonderful as well. The kangaroo appetizer was truly remarkable. Don’t skip it! Can’t wait to come back here.

When I say this is the best dining experience we’ve ever had I seriously mean it. If you are considering this restaurant at all I would for sure go for it. Vanessa, our server was absolutely phenomenal and the food just kept getting better with every dish. I give this place 5 stars proudly! What an amazing experience! We’re only in Atlanta for a few days but we’re strongly considering canceling our reservations for dinner Wednesday and just coming here instead again. It’s just that good!

Wow. Perfect from start to finish. Truly exceptional service from Erdem, and Kevin made sure we were spoiled. We were there for an anniversary and two birthdays all landing within a few weeks and we were there to celebrate! We sat outside on the patio and it was gorgeous. Everyone did a great job with Covid sanitation and we felt very safe. We had far too much food to mention but genuinely everything was exceptional. This is a place that has been special to our family for years and it remains so today. We will be back and thank you for making it such a memorable and meaningful day for us.

Great service, great views, great food! I took my girlfriend for her birthday, and she absolutely loved it. Their outside patio by the river was also great for pictures. We went early, and had a private table, but as we were leaving it started to fill up, so I recommend going earlier. Overall terrific experience!

The service was great. Attention and proper timing for food and service. Our steaks did not meet our standard, under spiced and under cooked.
Lamb and kangaroo were fantastic. Kangaroo was a little tougher than it has been in the past but overall pretty good.

Canoe , from the moment you pull up you know your experience will be a good one. The valet person was kind and friendly and patient. Once inside I was greeted with a smile and helped to my reserved table. The restaurant was beautiful but the view was an experience all to itself. The absolutely beautiful garden and lake was lit up and completely visible from your carefully positioned, comfortable table. The food from appetizers to entrees to drinks were all simple , clean, cooked and presented wonderfully and the taste was amazing. The service from the waitress, Miranda who said she was new, was top notch!!! So attentive and graceful and entertaining but not overbearing. She definitely made us feel very comfortable. All in all one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.

Canoe continues to provide a great location for fine food/fine wine/and for friends to reconnect

We loved the outside setting by the bar fir drinks. The Azaleas were blooming - and - the vibe was great in addition to the cocktails. A great bar staff to also note

Outside seating for Dinner was worth the wait.The crab cake and salmon were shared starters. All but one chose seafood - and their pork/curry was outstanding. The blueberry/muffin/ice creme desert - a nice closing to a great night!


Thanks again!

The setting is the star at Canoe. The food is very good, the drinks very good, the service exceptional, but the thing that sets Canoe apart from other fine dining experiences is the beautiful setting. Always eat outside so you can enjoy the garden.

Always a beautiful setting and meal. Had a strange experience with the server. We asked for his recommendations on the menu because it had been years since any of us had eaten there, and he proceeded to talk us out of almost every item! He said he did not recommend the crab cakes, the chicken dish, the curry tenderloin, or the cod. With our party of three that effectively eliminated one pick from each of us! He then told us he was in training and so had tasted everything recently and would therefore know what to recommend. Anyway, we enjoyed what we each picked but it was one of the odder “fine service” experiences we’ve had! Otherwise Canoe is usually a favorite and we always recommend!

Canoe, sitting upon the well-gardened west bank of the Chattahoochee, provided us with a warm return to life after the long frightful year of Covid. The convivial staff and the always excellent cuisine added to the hopefully soon arriving "after-times".

Never disappoints. Outstanding as always. No wonder it is always hard to find a table. Their wine prices, are some of the most reasonable in the city, and makes it worth while to uncork one of the better bottles.
