Canoe Ratings and Reviews

This being our first time to Canoe, our expectations were high and they were all met with 5 stars!! We can't wait to go back. (This is not a restaurant we would frequent because of the cost but it is worth saving up and treating ourselves)!

While vacationing with my college bound daughter, we enjoyed dinner at Canoe. It was my 3rd or 4th time dining here since 1997. It has never disappointed! A really fun dining experience. The menu was amazing as was the service! We tried kangaroo for the first time- it was delicious.
The desserts were also memorable- perfect in every way.

Was very cold in the restaurant so we had to move from our nice table in the corner to another table with no view. Service was great at the first table but the second waiter was not very friendly. Calamari was soggy and pretty spicy. Ordered the duck breast and it was seared on the outside and pretty rare on the inside. Chocolate dessert was the best part of the meal. Not sure I'd go back. Was expecting better food/service for the price.

Canoe has to top the list of best restaurants in Atlanta. The elegant appointments of the dining room are complemented by immaculate service by highly trained waiters, who explain fully the details of the very creative menu. The quality of the food is superb. An evening to remember.

I took my girlfriend here for our 5 year anniversary, and we were blown away. I had read the reviews about this place but with a little doubt. All the reviews were right. This place was amazing. When I tasted my dinner, I was speechless. My lady enjoyed her meal immensely. The view of the gardens and river was amazing. I keep telling friends and couples we know about it, and we will definitely be going back again. It is incredibly amazing and you need to go.

Canoe was the perfect cap to our trip to Atlanta. The beautiful view of the river and trees make it a perfect spot for a romantic date night. Our server, Will E., could not have been nicer and was extremely knowledgeable about every item on the menu. He guided us through decision making and it paid off. We took an adventurous risk by having the kangaroo (yes, real kangaroo) appetizer and it was cooked to perfection and a pleasant surprise. Our main courses (lamb special and pasta dish) were also delicious. A must-have is the popcorn ice cream sundae - a wonderfully unique dessert that will make you smile.

We went for a business celebration lunch. Brian was our server and he made on point recommendations. Brian took pictures of our group. His service was outstanding. We sat outside, it was over 90 degrees at lunch time, and yet we were very comfortable on the river's edge. The appetizers were delivered on separate plates (salmon) amazing. I had the turkey special, that I ate over two days and enjoyed every bite. Some of my colleagues had the salmon burger and salads, they all said delicious. We all shared also for appetizers the truffle fries... delectable.
I almost forgot the champagne toast, wonderful.
We thank Canoe and Brian for a memorable celebration.

The service was amazing! He was one of the best waiters I have ever had. They also had assistant waiters my glass was never less than half full and never had to wait for the table to be cleared. The food was great! The ambiance and view was wonderful also!

Everything was absolutely fantastic. Our server Sara was amazing, professional, prompt, and had amazing recommendations. My experience at Canoe was easily the best dining experience I've had in years. It was the absolute perfect spot for a date. I WILL be back again. Thank you!!!!

This was our first time at Canoe, and I regret waiting so long to try it! We were celebrating our anniversary, and will certainly be back. The views of the river are outstanding, the service was impeccable, and the food...beyond words. We had the arugula salad, which was light and fresh; the calimari, which sweet and smoky in a wonderful way; the NY Strip melted in my mouth, the swordfish which was a miss for my wife (a little too fatty); and 2 desserts! The caramel popcorn sundae was sweet and salty goodness, and the chocolate grotto...SAVE ROOM FOR THE CHOCOLATE GROTTO! The bitterness of flourless chocolate cake at the bottom is balanced perfectly by the chocolate mousse, caramel, and milk chocolate ganache that lovingly surrounds this beautiful piece of heaven. We'll be back!

Everything here is mediocre. From the oysters to the wine list to the service. Our server was wishy washy which made asking for recommendations difficult. Nothing special about the menu or the food. The restaurant is dark and dated. Other than a pretty river view, nothing here is memorable.

I loved everything about this place. The setting is lovely, right on the river. We had a drink at the outside bar before dinner and the bartenders were very friendly and informative. We talked about the history and the chef and the menu. We shared the kangaroo appetizer and I had the rabbit for my main course (both of these were a first for me) and they were both fantastic. I don't typically have dessert but I couldn't resist the Chocolate Grotto. They brought it on a plate that had "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate and a candle! Delicious dessert and wonderful presentation. The service was excellent! We will definitely be going back.

We've been here several times over the last 5 -6 years. This time was not as good as in the past. The food was just good, not outstanding as in the past. My husbands appetizer was not hot when it came out and my fish was "a little fishy". I'm not sure I'd go back there as opposed to some other "special occasion" restaurant in Atlanta.

Was least enjoyable meal I've experienced at canoe... Ordered duck beef burger requested temp certain way and egg hard fried because pregnant. They brought out runny egg so sent back and yolk still not cooked solid and burger way too rare ... Server should have noticed burger not eaten and egg layed out on plate bc inedible....

Canoe's brunch was marvelous. The view was so pretty and everyone treated us like old friends even though it was our first time there. I wish we lived closer because we would visit often. The food was delicious. We visited the area for a quick weekend get away and our experience at Canoe was the perfect ending to the trip! Thanks!
