    This was just ok this time around. I ordered the pork chop and it came cold (well room temperature). It was not hot or warm. I feel like the menu needs to be re vamped.

    This was a disappointing outing. We were seated next to the entrance to the kitchen so had high traffic passing our table all evening. The waiter kept leaning right over the table, knocking my hand several times. Plates were whisked away before we were finished with a dish. The food was disappointing too - my fish was slightly undercooked and the risotto was mushy and bland.

    Table too close to booth and there was high volume traffic through a narrow opening. Waiter used the “we” term as in are we through with our salad? He was not at our table. Food was quite good. Gaggle of young women at reception desk doing nothing.

    The only good parts about brunch were the scones and service. The rest of the food was reminiscent of a Denny's breakfast. I'm not sure why this restaurant is so popular with such a high rating.

    I had asked twice at the check in to have my check separate from the couple I had dinner with so they wouldn’t offer to pay. It was not done and my friends paid for me. Very very disappointed considering I asked twice and was assured it would be done.

    I am so sad to say that the service really detracted from a lovely evening. While the staff was very kind and I’m sure we’re trying their best to be most helpful , we were interrupted way too many times. It is very disappointing that such a wonderful restaurant does not have staff train properly to read the moment of when to interject at the table.

    Such a great spot for a celebratory birthday meal! As always, the service was wonderful, and the food was delicious. Our server offered great recommendations, and ensured that my salmon was cooked perfectly. And we devoured the bread pudding dessert! Looking forward to coming back soon!

    First disappointing meal I have had at Canoe. Our waitress & manager were very receptive & welcoming. Disappointed in the quality of the food. Our soup was cold & special monk fish did not taste good. Our other 2 fish dishes were also cold & bland. Not what I expected from Canoe

    Had lunch with a work colleague. Ordered the salmon with spaghetti squash. The spaghetti squash was almost undetectable. Overall was a good but unimpressive meal, given the cost. The bread and crackers were the best part. The service, as usual, was solid and professional.

    The food, service, and view of the river was great. Unfortunately, the adjacent table had eight loud-mouth men who were oblivious to the fact that there were other diners. Several took calls on their phone, and in order not to disturb their party, they came over and stood by our table. I suspect all eight were graduates of Neanderthal High School. It was impossible for our party of four to converse.

    The weather had gotten cold just this week which was disappointing because I was looking forward to drinks on the river at the outdoor bar before dinner. It was a wonderful birthday celebration for my friend of 50 years.

    What a fantastic experience! The service was stellar from the start and very personable and inviting. The food was divine! Drinks were exciting. I went with friends and my husband for my birthday dinner and I felt celebrated and had fun. The setting was comfortable, beautiful, and energetic but still intimate. I tried the kangaroo and the rabbit because I was curious to try something different and they were just incredible. They even brought a lovely bowl of berries out for my small son. Canoe was a highlight of our Atlanta experience!

    One of my favorite venues in Atlanta - this is the first time I had brunch and was with out of town company. One of the specials was shrimp and grits and I must say that the grits were not cooked well - they were crunchy. Did not say anything but will probably stick with lunches in the future.

    Nice place to go on someone else's dollar. Good, energetic vibe, cozy, comfortable, attentive. Real drawback is in the menu value. The food was not bad, but you pay way more than what you get on the plate in terms of execution and flavor. Bar was good, but also over priced.

    I hosted friends for lunch at Canoe and we had a perfect time. The hostess graciously accommodated two early arrivals. Our server was personable and efficient, able to handle special requests and knowledgeable about the menu and specials as well as specialty cocktails. The food was, as always, beautifully presented and flavorful, served at the perfect temperature. I indulged in my favorite Canoe signature dishes: the salmon appetizer and the popcorn sundae. Others chose the squash soup, shrimp salad, and Cobb salads. Everyone loved their meal! We all enjoyed an unhurried lunch and I plan to return soon.

    We have been coming to Canoe since 1995. People treated us in a very personal way. We travel To come to canoe twice a year. The last couple of years things have changed. The food is less than it ever has been. Service is rehearsed and less than it should be. Our server never told us of the specials. Then we heard him tell other tables after we had already ordered. He said they were out of swordfish but then got some back in. This seemed like a maze Up answer thst the kitchen suddenly got more in? He took the bottle of wine we order off our table to give us more room. Which was great but he never came back to pour us wine. The quality the food was very good but lacked the usual seasoning and was tasting flat. It never used to be that way. Our desert order was also not what and how we ordered it. Your wonderful flat bread cracker is something we look forward to each visit. It was good but not as peppery and fresh as in all The years past. It was disappointing experience on so many levels considering we travel specially for Canoe. The question below says would we recommend to a friend. We have set many people up to dine at Canoe over the years but now not sure we would or not.
