The quality of food is what big fish use to be. Had dinner there twice in two weeks and enjoyed the meal

These people know nothing about running a restaurant. Many people waited and left after not being seated or greeted. We waited forever to place our order. Disorganization was the special of the day. We were going to order desert but after it took 45 minutes to get our waiter's attention we decided to ask for our check instead. The food... More

Have a number of really good meals in the very up-scale location. Canoa is on a dock the is over Oyster Bay and is walking distance from Oyster Bay Resort.

This is a great spot to go and the food is excellent! We came here a couple of times in Feb of 2014 when we were staying at Oyster Bay Beach Resort, so it was very convenient. I would suggest to those staying elsewhere, to make the trip it to Canoa and try this great restaurant.

Yummy- it's a must get. The lovely little place was a bit slow with service, but the food was fantastic and the view was lovely at sunset.

We were on foot and decided to try Canoa based on reviews we read on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! We tried the plantain appetizer and thought it was very yummy, almost like eggplant parm but a little sweeter. I had the stuffed snapper, and my husband had the Mahi el Greco. We shared a slice of cheesecake, and it... More

Food: great Portions: large - well worth the money Quality: As fresh as it gets Make sure to stop in ask for their signature appetizer. Its a sweet... More

One of the best meals we ate. Food was very good and had a decent selection on the menu. Tables sit out on the dock. I would recommend to others and we already did. .

Great presentation but the seasoning and taste along with the ambiance on the marina, makes it the best spot in Oyster Bay hands down!

We had just one dinner at Conoa during our week at a vila on Dawn Beach. We had certainly planned on returning but we just ran out of time. Definitely try the chef's signature appetizer of plantain with meat, cheese and tomato sauce. It is absolutely delicious. We were dining with 2 girls age 11 and 16 and everyone really... More
