I chose this Restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday during our visit to Atlanta. As it was rated the #1 Restaurant in Atlanta I had high expectations and they certainly were met. Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River it has a great location and view which complements the outstanding menu. Our family dined on chicken, duck and lamb shanks that evening and every meal was outstanding as was the service. The staff were friendly and attentive and my two young daughters also got to chat to the chef who helped them decide on what might be a good meal for them. I cannot say enough good things about Canoe and I would return in a heartbeat should we ever come back to Atlanta.
