Canoe Ratings and Reviews

Our waiter, Alvin, was very attentive and highly educated on his food/wine. With his service, great outdoor view, and wonderful wine & food -- we had a great night celebrating a great year! We especially enjoyed the Astra Chardonay and Pinot Noir, the heirloom tomato salad! and the monk fish over fava bean risotto.....cannot wait to visit again when back in town!

The atmosphere was excellent as we ate outside and the weather was wonderful! The food was excellent although I would not pair the halibut with the bean accompaniment which over powered the delicacy of the fish which was delicious and cooked just right, not over done.

First time to Canoe, and it was everything it is cracked up to be. Terrific food, superb service, and terrific ambiance (not stuffy or snooty). The salmon appetizer is amazing - if you are going there for the first time, you simply have to get it. Our entrees, steak for me and duck breast for my wife, were sublime. And the prices are quite reasonable for a high-end city restaurant - we've paid twice this much in NYC for a meal that wasn't any better (and maybe not as good). Will definitely head back here next time we're in Atlanta.

My experience was a great one. The staff are out of this world professional, attentive, dedicated, and great at what they do. The food was great. This was a top notch experience for me. The fois gras ravioli is so good it needs to be its own entree or appetizer. I will definitely be returning for a patio date.

My wife and I decided on Canoe for our anniversary dinner since we try different, high end, restaurants each year. This was not our first visit but it has been some time since we last ate here. Overall, the experience was good but not as special as it has been in the past.
The server seemed rushed and it was very hard to hear her but she did do a good job of keeping up with our needs. The food was good but nothing outstanding. My wife had the halibut and it was very thin and did not have much flavor, even with the toppings. I had the steak and although the mole' sauce was very good, the steak itself did not have the rich, flame cooked flavor I am used to for NY strip. That said, our bill at Canoe was one of our lower bills for our anniversary dinner, so no complaints but I will think twice before going back. In summary, the service was very good, food was good but nothing memorable.

I always order a fish dish when dining at Canoe. This time, I ordered the halibut which was think and perfectly cooked. My wife ordered the salmon which was the best we've ever had. It has a smokey taste from the grill and was cooked a nice medium rare. Others at the table had the lamb chops (don't forget to eat the ribs, they are amazing), and the pork chop. All dishes were fantastic.

Canoe is consistently wonderful from culinary delights to service to ambiance. It is on my top 5 in Atlanta. I was sad to learn that Jessica W. is no longer with Canoe. She was my favorite and she always ensured an awesome experience from beginning to end. Best wishes to you JW you are missed!

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant and loved all the elements of it. From the island outdoor bar right next to the river, to the romantic garden and great scenic view its precious. Also the back yard of the restaurant is dining seating where you have a direct opening of the Chattahoochee river. If you need a wedding venue they have two plots of paved areas in the backyard of the restaurant to dance and enjoy the view for your guest. Also they have a small wooden bench about a 12' long table (I design furniture) for large groups for your dinner guest. It reminds me of the awesome venues on pinterest. Loved this place.

Found this place looking for a unique, treat-yourself dining experience on a first-time trip to Atlanta. Decided on lunch because I'm a college kid on a budget. The simple grilled chicken salad I ordered was seasoned well and delicious, dessert was beautifully plated and tasty, and the service was excellent. The view of the river was lovely and even though it was a little loud (lunch bunch, what do you expect?) the overall experience was one worth repeating.

The restaurant is beautiful. The service was dynamic. Will was my server and he was exceptional. He was able to convince me to try an off menu entrée which rarely happens when I dine out. It was a great recommendation. The halibut was divine. I would definitely be returning and would recommend this restaurant to others.

I always enjoy going to Canoe. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food and kind. The food is sure to never disappoint and the drinks are excellent. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great experience.

It was a family brunch with six adults, a toddler, and small baby. However, we were made to feel very welcome, and staff did everything to accommodate our needs. Our waiter was Justin and he was great---attentive, helpful, and responsive. My guests commented on the food; my brother particularly like the halibut special he ate. Great time. Thanks!

I have eaten at Canoe on many occassions. However, i will probably never return (especially on a weekend). The food was teriffic, however, there were far too many tables (at a 5:45pm reservation) that were loud, disrespectful of other diners, and outright rude. The table behind us had about 8 guests who filtered in over a period of over an hour, were sharing food, and talking loudly with no regard for other patrons. Apparently the ghetto found Canoe!

Canoe certainly lived up to the reviews it has received this far. Jessica, our waitress/server, was EXECELLENT! She was able to suggest some great food choices as well as drinks. The ambiance was very nice and although we were outside and close to other diners, I did not really hear their conversations and little to no bugs which is a plus.

The setting is fantastic. We sat on the outdoor patio with a view of the river at sunset. Relaxing and romantic atmosphere. The service was also excellent -- very attentive to all of our needs, friendly, elegantly fast, and helpful. The food itself was underwhelming, especially after hearing and reading about how great this place is. Presentation was nice -- clean and elegant, but there was a wow factor missing in the flavor department. A restaurant with this reputation and price point should deliver exquisite flavor with every bite. I was looking for something interesting and exciting on my plate and just couldn't find it. It didn't have the depth that I was expecting, but even so, the food was still tasty. Just not five star quality. The best part of the meal was the dessert -- that delivered on expectations. Presentations were eye-catching, colorful, and had lots of texture (we ordered the lemon meringue pie and the vanilla pound cake). The flavor combinations were fun and unique, and blended perfectly together. The pound cake came with roasted apricots and pistachio ice cream. The lemon meringue pie was presented as more of an individual tart, which was different and charming. The meringue was perfectly toasted in a nice textured pattern and everything was on point taste-wise. It allowed us to end our otherwise middle-of-the-road meal on a very high note.

We went to Canoe for my husbands birthday and had an enjoyable experience. The food was very good and the manager was very involved and made it a point to come over to everyone's table and ask if there was anything else we needed, how was our meal ect.. Very good experience and we will definitely go back again.

Canoe has been our favorite restaurant for years, and food and service always outstanding until this visit. Service was spotty and food was good but not great. Dish did not match description and preparation was only ok. Fish had no side with it and scallops side didn't mesh well. Overall, disappointing, especially at this price point. Dessert excellent as always as it was a Canoe standard - the popcorn sundae. Hoping this was just a rare aberration from the perfection Canoe usually is. Ambiance outstanding as always

My daughter and I had a 5:30 reservation and I was disappointed that we were not seated on the patio. There were many empty tables and we sat in the dark dining room. I thought the fish was over cooked, but the service was wonderful.
