    Canoe remains the prettiest place in town to have a daylight meal. The lunch options are tried and true. It remains my go to restaurant for almost any occasion.

    Our table was ready exactly on time. Our server was knowledgeable, personable, and prompt. Our food was delightful. We thought it was busy for a Tuesday evening. If we could adjust anything, it would be to turn the noise level down a notch.

    We came here to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary with a nice dinner. It did not disappoint. From the friendly greeting by the valets and hostesses to the custom printed menu declaring a “Happy Anniversary” at the top. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, and sold my husband on the rabbit for dinner. We should have taken her recommendations on the dessert options, but we were too full! Everything was delicious. We had the Canoe smoked salmon appetizer, braised rabbit, and oven roasted red snapper. The attention to detail every step of the way was great. Thank you for a wonderful dinner out. One star deducted for ambience only because it was a little loud and we had to speak up to hear each other across the table at our booth.

    We sat down for 15 minutes before even being acknowledged and receiving a glass of water. The valet drove the car in reverse but did not do the other cars the same. We do plan on coming back to give them another chance only because of the beautiful scenery. Not sure if I’d recommend to others.

    First they sat us next to the kitchen with ultra bright lights and extensive traffic. At one point there were eight, EIGHT servers next to our table. So we moved. Then our server was maybe 22 years old and didn’t actually know anything about the food or wine he was serving, just memorized lines and spoke them very politely. The dessert special was a disaster - tasted like I liked an ashtray. Also, probably my biggest pet peeve of any dining experience: when you can just feel them trying to get you out. Wasn’t the last table nor was I the last available seating, but the music was off, the servers were at the door, and the silence was deafening. So uncomfortable! The place was absolutely gorgeous, but when I’m spending $500 for dinner for two, I expect world class service.

    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.

    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.

    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.
