“Be on time... they are busy!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We loved our experience at Canoe. We were delayed and were late for our reservation so we had to wait a very long time to be seated but it was worth the wait. The food was excellent the atmosphere is divine and the staff bent over backwards to make the long wait up to us. They brought out five different deserts on the house for us to sample. The kids were thrilled when we got home. We will return and will be on time next time!

“One of the top restaurants in Atlanta”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

A favorite for a romantic dinner on the Chattahoochee River. Wonderful choices all around, including dessert. Try to get a seat outside if the weather is warm. A wonderful experience.

“Some of the best food in Atlanta.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Co-owned by the chef of Aria, another great place. Very good staff, professional but relaxed. Do great job getting you to make up tour mind in choice of food, excellent wine list and wine knowledge. Our waiter Mitch, made it a special occasion. Excellent fish, lamp shank was very tender, wild rice sisotto. Made sure to get a reservation.

“Top in everything”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We love Canoe. The staff is friendly. They greet us name when we arrive and welcome us back. The view of the Chattahoochee River is beautiful and soothing. But the real reason we go is the food. It is fabulous! My favorites are the squash soup, any way they serve tuna, and the popcorn ice cream sundae.

“Hardly a surprise”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

#1 rated (jan 13) out of 1200+ restaurants gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect, but it still exceeded my expectations. The waitress had extensive knowledge of the menu, was very helpful with recommendations and attentive at all times. The food was great, consistent and interesting. We had the specials (scallops in satay) and it was amongst the best appetizers i've ever tasted.

Price was reasonable, less that I was expecting given the level of service and quality of food. It's a big place and it was busy, but that wasn't an issue at any point.

Highly recommended.
