About Canoe Restaurant and Bar
Critically acclaimed to be among Canada’s best restaurants, Canoe's unique location high atop the TD Bank Tower affords a breathtaking view of the city and Lake Ontario. The design, originally conceptualized by noted designers Yabu Pushelberg and most recently refreshed by Anacleto Design, is clean and simple, yet absolutely stylish - a brilliant reflection of Canada's rich raw environment. That same brilliance is captured through the flavours and textures of Chef John Horne's inspired regional Canadian cuisine. The menu showcases the freshest and finest Canadian fish, game and produce, as well as an outstanding selection of Canadian vintages. "All that is Canadian defines Canoe." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

Canoe Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was our favorite restaurant on our trip to Toronto. We were a party of 6 and everyone thought it was the best. The oysters were delicious. We were guided with our wine selection that was excellent. Our waiter was fabulous. Between the 6 of us we had an assortment of entrees from fish to red stag, all delicious. Definitely will return.
Best place in town for lunch or dinner... service is unbeliveable incredible! Too expensive for daily business meal, but perfect for any special occasion or celebration. Portions of food are just enough, not too much, not too little; but full of flavor and delicious and beef was perfectly on point as I order it (never happen before in restaurants, usually is overcook or not well done, here they just made it perfect). Ideal for business lunch, will give you best impresion with partners. Make sure to do a reservation so they can serve you best; but eventhough I belive service and food is the perfect no matter what!
Everything was great! The only challenge we encountered was upon leaving ... the complimentary parking voucher did NOT work. Their was no attendant working that we could find in the underground parking garage on this particular Saturday night (June 11). So we had to pay with a credit card to leave (out the Wellington St exit). That was our only disappointment for an otherwise lovely and tasty evening.
From the reception to the waiter every one was great. Our reservation was for 1:30 they tried to check if there was room when i asked if we could go in even though it was just 1:00. It was our first time to Canoe.
The food was deliciou. The waiter asked us what the occassion was told him it was my nephew's graduation coming up and he also got accepted to med school. So when the waiter brought the dessert there was "congratulations" on the place. Nice personal touch. We asked to be be moved closer to the window while having the dessert. No problem.
Warm and inviting atmosphere. Bubbly and eclectic serving staff. All the food was very tasty and expertly crafted and displayed.
Had the rib eye beef was a decent portion.
I recommend pairing with the mushrooms and asparagus. Observed the tasting menu. I will try this one day. Looks fantastic.
May be a little exotic and gamey if you are vegan don't show!
Thank you Canoe. It was a wonderful and memorable experience! Oh yes let's not forget the outstanding views!!!
The food was exceptional, creative and memorable. The service was professional, warm, and knowledgeable. The decor and overall style was spot on in its tribute to Canadian heritage and culture. I would recommend this place to anyone, and would surely return myself!
The service was okay. You could tell that our waiter was just doing his job and nothing more. The food was good but what made our evening was the view and relaxing ambience. I would come back or recommend friends to go to Canoe if the service was better.
We ordered the tasting menu with pairing and every piece of the meal was delicious. The flavours were complex and vibrant and each wine selection enhanced the course from exceptional to spectacular.
The wait staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing and never once did we feel rushed even though we were at the restaurant for 4 hours.
I would recommend the experience to anyone looking for a celebratory meal.
Service was slow and I really didn't feel the food was worth the cost. It was very loud and hard to have a conversation. When we quietly complained about the service they did bring us a couple dessert cheese platters. Over all it just seemed overrated.
Our meal was excellent. We both had the char appetizer, amazing mushroom soup, and the halibut main course. Although the food was exceptional, the night was marred by the poor, inattentive service. We dine at Canoe several times a year, whenever we are in Toronto. We are always impressed by the food and the spectacular view. This was our first bad experience. Hope the restaurant can improve.
