Canoe Ratings and Reviews

When we first arrived we told the hostess it was our 1 year anniversary. After telling just the hostess, the other hostess that walked us to our table, the bread guy, the waitress, etc. all congratulated us on our 1 year anniversary. It was impressive that they thought enough of it to pass it around to everyone who we interacted with. We declined desert because we had our top of our wedding cake to eat at home. However, the waitress still brought us a free desert to celebrate. Wonderful service. Amazing food. Going to go back more and more for years to come.

Went to Canoe for my birthday for the first time and it was wonderful. I was annoyed that they only had an 8:45pm reservation available two weeks prior, but apart from that it was great. Lots of attention from staff, knowledgeable staff, great table, and great food. Only downside was that it was a little loud - even with our corner table we had to speak loudly across the table to hear each other.

Spent some time at the river side bar at sunset before dining. Great view. Drink selection is limited, though. Sat out on the patio (our choice) for dinner. It was a little cool. Not sure why they don't have heaters out. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was very good. Wife loved the salmon. My NY steak was flavorful but slightly tough in sections. Enjoyed a nice after dinner drink in their comfortable lounge.

I enjoyed my dining experience but unfortunately a wedding was taking place, so that quiet dining experience I wanted, I did not get. The music was loud and some of the guests were a bit loud and rowdy as they were hanging around by the patio. For a restaurant that is as pricey as Canoe, I am a bit disappointed that they would cater to weddings at the same time as they have guests that are dining. I found it very distracting. I would not recommend it to friends on a Saturday evening for this reason if they want to ensure that they have a quiet evening. I myself will return, but not on a weekend, maybe sometime during the week.

What an amazing experience! I was asked when making the reservation if it was a special occasion and the moment we stepped foot inside and told them our name we were congratulated immediately!The customer service was spectacular!We felt very welcomed!Thank you for making us feel so special!The food and service was the best I've ever had!WOW WOW WOW! Definitely going back!

There aren't (m)any restaurants in Georgia that can offer as complete a 'package' as Canoe...food, service, ambience and THAT VIEW!!! My wife and I were on a date night and luckily they seated us on the lower deck with direct views of the gardens and the river...simply gorgeous! Hannah was an amazing server (I rank her almost as good as Rebecca at Dolce in Buckhead, which is saying something)...the duck and beefburger is scrumptious, and the desserts are all glorious (especially the popcorn ice cream sundae)...no wonder Canoe is consistently ranked one of the top restaurants in Atlanta! I'd give it six stars but Open Table only allows a maximum of 5! Close call between Canoe and Dolce for 'best in the south' but I'll give the edge to Canoe due to the setting & view!

Have always enjoyed Canoe. However, the parking is an issue. There is valet parking. We gave the attendant the fob but on getting the car back, no one mentioned where the fob was placed in the car. Since we have 2 fobs, no problem until returned to the hotel and could not locate the fob used at Canoe. Because of this we called Canoe and they were no help saying all the valet parking attendants were "busy" and could not take the time to look for an extra fob. This caused further unpleasant events in the evening.

This was our first time at Canoe. We have dined at Ray's before and kept hearing about Canoe. The ambiance is wonderful. Comfortable, sleek, classy. Our family name is German, so we thought it was unique to have a waiter from Germany. Karsten really made the evening. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and had wonderful recommendations. He even let us have a second round of bread with fresh butter! We ordered the kangaroo appetizer and both agreed we could order two of those for our entree. It was an amazing experience. My husband had the duck and I chose to stick with the original dish: rabbit. Neither of us were disappointed. Once again, Karsten made sure we were happy and comfortable. We conversed in German throughout the evening and he was intrigued that my dad also made his own bread. He asked us to bring them next time we come to Canoe so we can have a wonderful conversation and a good meal. Honestly, the food and the setting were out of this world, but Karsten was what brought all the elements together perfectly. He will be our only waiter from now on.

Beautiful space with fun, romantic ambiance. Went for a birthday celebration and wanted to sit outside, which is first come first serve. Sat at the bar while we waited and Tracy & Sean were exceptional. Tracy treated the birthday girl to a complementary drink. I would recommend just doing drinks at the bar and hold off on appetizers. Once our table was ready there was some hesitation with transferring our appetizers to the table, which they were very apologetic for but it was still a bit odd. Hannah, our waitress, was so sweet and energetic; very knowledgeable about the menu and accommodating to all our needs. The food was fantastic and well presented. The higher prices are more so for the experience but well worth it. Would definitely recommend for a date night or special occasion. We didn't get to try out the bar by the water but it looked very nice. The grounds are specious and beautiful. Will be returning!

I enjoyed everything, the food was great, the area was comfortable, my fiancé and I enjoyed it, the waiter was a skilled restaurant man, very pleasant, cared about us made sure we get what we wanted. Again I will refer people to this fabulous restaurant. The approach was professional started with the young lady that made us seated.

Dining experience was absolutely wonderful! The food was incredible and highly worth the price. We had the crab cakes, which were exceptional, as well as the Rabbit and the Duck. Everything was spectacular. Our waiter, Karsten, was superb.

Canoe is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. For a restaurant to be so consistently incredible is really remarkable. From the Valet to the host(ess) table to the outdoor seating to the incredible outside bar to the service to the valet to Kevin Cornish, who is the best restaurant manager in Atlanta as far as we are concerned. The food is consistently great(oysters are a must) and the only thing that could improve the experience is to have light rail service right to the front door as sometimes the traffic can be horrendous. But apart from that this is a consistently perfect place for any occasion. No trip to Atlanta is complete without eating at Canoe.

Good charcutere plate selection. Striped Bass Entree was great. Waiter very professional and made good recommendations throughout the evening. Fresh local ingredients and the waterfront bar after dinner was a nice option to close the evening.

We had a FABULOUS experience for our anniversary also our first time at Canoe! Our server, Jessica was great and the food was amazing. The staff paid attention to every little detail. We never get out for date night and this was exactly what we needed. It was completely romantic on the patio and very laid back. We can't wait to come back!

My son and I went to Canoe to celebrate his 40th birthday. Since it was an exceptionally special evening, we chose what we considered a "fine dining" restaurant with superb food, service, and ambiance. Canoe was all of those things and more. I would recommend Canoe highly to anyone wanting a restaurant specializing in marvelous food with an elegant touch and personalized table service. We will certainly return.

I have been here several times for business/client dinners and the food and service is always amazing. However, I am always sad that you basically have to yell to be heard for table conversation. We have sat different places in the restaurant and each time it has really been loud.

We'd heard about the restaurant on television as they covered the wine list, garden, wonderful menu and romantic ambiance.
We went on 10/10 to celebrate our 1 yr Anniversary.
I must say it was a perfect evening from the knowledgeable and friendly server to the OML(Oh My Lord) food.
