Since I work and live in Toronto, Canoe tends to end up being an easy choice for a business lunch or a dinner for a special occasion. Over the years, I don't think I've ever been wow'ed by the food. However, with the view and its service, the whole package makes the prices somewhat justifiable.

This was my second experience at Canoe, and it certainly didn't disappoint. I say experience, because that's exactly what it is - it's more than just a dinner when the view is one of the best of the city and museum-worthy 'art' (the dishes) make their way out of the kitchen almost parade-style, serving the entire table all at once....

The view doesn't change, quite a spectacular vantage point over the city,especially for international guests, more so with a window table. On this sample of one evening after a two year hiatus, the food was OK, but not special as it has been in the past. Was Chef having a night off? Nothing was bad, but it was bland compared... More

The restaurant is very upscale. Belongs to the same group that owns Auberge du Pommier (on of torontos finest). It is more continental than French but does have foia gras! The menu variety is not Great but the view is VERY NICE (it is located on the 60+ floor). The bar looked very alive and the cava is fantastic. Great... More

We went to Canoe last night and had a fantastic round table in a corner of the restaurant. Since the walls were glass, we had a 270 degree view of the city and Lake Ontario. The service was impeccable and the food exceptional. The Canoe Raw Bar (seafood ) is fantastic and at $72 a good value for a group... More

Finally made it to Canoe, to celebrate my birthday. What an experience! From the minute we walked in, we had 5 star service from reception through our dinner and up until we left. Dinner was spectacular: mushroom soup with creme fresh and truffle oil, lamb ribs and tenderloin and a most wonderful blue Char. Presentation was outstanding. Terrance, our server,... More

Food and wine pairings were spot on. You must be willing to stretch your palate to include non-traditional offerings to enjoy this hot spot. Our Thursday evening dinner at 6:45 was to a packed restaurant. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful without being annoying. We had several courses and asked for half wine glasses as part of our pairings and... More

We had a small informal gathering of family and friends after our ceremony at city hall, and Canoe has more than surpassed our expectations. The moment our guests walked it they were captivated by the view, and the exquisite service by our server Roger was nothing less than perfection. Wine was always flowing, orders were taken at the right moment,... More
