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

Menu was all Canadian. Great selection of courses, and impeccably presented. Menu on line was two weeks behind actual menu. So, though they had no sturgeon( the reason I chose to come) everything else was tasty- sounding. That which I ordered was delicious. Pan seared woodland mushrooms were the best.

Server who helped us was amazing. I was with my family who came from oversea don't understand English well, but he still entertain them a lot.
Even 5 year old kid seems having fun chatting with him.
We had special course $100 per person and these dishes were so unique. We all enjoyed the course, but if you want standards, you should pick from regular menu.
View from the window was also amazing as is always.
Amazing view of the islands and the lake ...
Amazing view of the islands and the lake as well as the city looking South. You couldn't be more up close and personal with the CN Tower at about the same level as the main usable section of that structure.
The theme of the tasting menu was great and every dish was better than the next. The only thing I would say is that while this is a special, expensive experience and well worth it, it is way to crowded and loud to be a romantic spot. Much better for a group or if you want to see and be seen.

The view is amazing from almost every table. The food was very high quality and the menu was unique in that it very much represents what Canada has to offer. For what I ordered I'd expect to pay more. That being said, its not exactly cheap either, you are paying for the view.

Dining at Canoe was one of the top
Ten culinary experiences of my life...Enhanced by the stunning view of the harbor, and the knowledge and engagement of our waiter and the sommelier. The food was prepared perfectly... The mushroom soup and okroshka were revelatory, the daily special beef entree perfection, the deconstructed goat cheesecake with lavender glass astounding!

Canoe offers one of those memorable dining experience where everything is simply perfect. The food melts in your mouth, the service is impeccable and the view from the top floor is spectacular. It is pricey but worth every penny!

Wished the tasting menu was available at lunch since we weren't able to schedule a dinner during our time in Toronto, but everything we tried was wonderful. For the quality of food we were served, our bill was extremely reasonable. Portions were on the smaller side as is typical for lunch, but it was perfect since we also ordered some appetizers. A wonderfully Canadian take on French cooking and a great way for us to end our long weekend in Toronto.

Canoe is always one of our favorites here in Toronto. Canoe should, however, automatically split shared salads in the kitchen. They did not do this on Thursday July 28th when my husband and I took out-of-town visitors there for dinner. Splitting our salad at the table was awkward for us. In fact, restaurants charging the prices of Canoe should never expect their dining patrons to do this kind of messy work themselves at the table. Rather, the kitchen is where this should happen each and every time.
This is a spectacular restaurant on the ...
This is a spectacular restaurant on the 54th floor of a high rise in Toronto. Specializing in 'Canadian' food, we chose the prix fixe meal which was composed of dishes meant to honor the European immigrants to the plains. Sounds pretentious but was tasty and intriguing, down to the mustard ice cream on the dessert. I would return next time I am in Toronto.

Summer Cocktails as we sat down. A Dandelion Smash and Stubborn Mule. We then started off with the Raw Bar and it was absolutely delicious! The Shrimp cocktail was a surprisingly amazing dish!
We had the B.C. Skate & Octopus and Ontario Beef Tenderloin with Pan Roasted Northern Woods Mushrooms as a side. We loved both plates.
A Red Beringer Quantum 2013 to drink....
Classic Canoe Butter Tart and Milk Chocolate + Kernal peanut for dessert... Tart was very good the Kernal peanut was equally as good.
It was a wonderful evening. We will definitely be returning.

I don't usually write reviews but I wanted to take the time for this one. I planned an important lunch with a colleague and this dos not disappoint. The food was great, the service was superb, and the views are amazing. Thank you for providing a great work lunch experience! P.S. Tip: when you make RSVP ask for a table next to a window!
