Great dinner, staff and food. We were welcomed by Don with Sylvia providing fantastic service, both with great personality. The ribeye steak was so good the first night we returned tonight with everyone in tow. 3 steaks, 1 lamb chop and 1 pork chop order later, all was right with the world. The Exotic Salad was very good. Now you... More

There wasn't one available but the maitre D was very accommodating and asked us if we could spare a few minutes. It was well worth the wait!! I had the madras chicken and my wife... More

They're open 5:30p-10:30p. I would suggest making a reservation at least the morning of (the latest) to get dockside seating. Otherwise, they have a lovely bar to sit at and wait for your table. Overall, this place is a great,energetic atmosphere for friends and family. An airy space with plenty of seating. The food left something to be desired, as... More

My daughter won a "dinner for two" voucher from a local bingo fundraising and it so happen that July 11th my wife and I is celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. I sent an email to Canoa to ask for a reservation and I promptly received a very warm reply from Mirella. When we arrived at Canoa we were gladly seated... More

While staying in the area, we quickly learned that Canoa was one of the better dining options. The staff was very friendly. We were seated at a 2-seater on the deck, over-looking the water/pond, which wasn't particularly picturesque. It smelled a little like a pond would be expected to smell, I suppose. It was quite dark.
