    Excellent! Easily one of the best meals I have had in Atlanta. The kangaroo "Wellington," Canoe's take on a beef Wellington, was utterly delightful. My duck breast and leg married a fusion of southern and East Asian flavors. My husband's rabbit, perfectly cooked and paired with seasonal vegetables, took him back to his family's roots. A hidden gem. Highly recommend.

    Canoe is, by far, the very best place for a celebration or just a good night out. (We were celebrating our galentine's brunch.) • Brunch cocktails: The bellini was perfect! • Love the basket of breakfast breads! • The she-crab soup was perfect, as always. • Just okay on the shrimp salad; we didn't expect the shrimp to be fried. But still good! Frank was our server, and he was GREAT.

     Amazing Experience. Our reservation was at 9:00 PM. We were sad as soon as we arrived. Our server was fabulous. We had a party of eight and we were all cater to individually. The food was amazing. For appetizers, we had a charcuterie board, fried calamari and two dozen of oysters !! everything was great ! The entrées came after shortly, and everyone loved their food. We will definitely be coming back again for a special occasion.

    Canoe never disappoints! Celebrating Valentine’s Day there was the right choice. Food and service was outstanding. I had the rabbit and my wife had the red snapper. Both were delicious and the exact portion size where you don't stuffed even after appetizers. Finished off the night with the popcorn sundae. Great night! Would highly recommend Canoe for all occasions.

    Canoe is hands down our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. The beautiful setting and the food never cease to impress. Service has always been wonderful as well. Our favorite dishes include the smoked salmon, kangaroo, pork chop, and the most DELICIOUS desert has been the Chocolate Crunch Bar!! It’s not always on the menu, but it needs to be!! We would come back just for that and the pork chop!

    Interesting menu with many varieties of meat not normally found. Well prepared and very flavorful. Service excellent. Only downside is the lighting is so dark that it makes it difficult to read the menu or be comfortable. Shame this takes away from such a special restaurant.
