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

The portion sizes are very small. We also called to say we would be 15 minutes late because we were looking for parking and the hostess did not tell us that they had complimentary parking for the building so we ended up parking and paying at another garage...

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Out server remembered us from our last visit and was very accommodating.
The grass fed beef had a gamey taste which I didn’t care for.
Wine was good value. Lots of VQA wines available. View and ambiance unbeatable. Good value.

Amazing food, everything was delicious. However, service was terrible. He was rude and slapped everything on the table and never once paid attention to us even though we ordered 4 drinks for 2 people.

Went for Summerlicious, best appetizer: the smoked salmon, really good, potato soup refreshing but cold so if you like hot then don’t order it; best main: none, definitely do not get the lamb if you are not into that strong lamb smell, and if you don’t like fatty meat; best dessert: definitely the tart with gelato on the side thing that I forgot the name of, strawberry shortcake too sweet and tastes below average, Panna Cotta is just too average. Service and ambiance was great, but food... I would expect more of Canoe.

I went there for summerlicious dinner with two friends. The food is mediocre. The only good thing is the beautiful view of the lake. I've never been to Canoe before so I don't know how their normal dinner dishes are. But the summerlicious food is barely average.

We found the wait staff to be a bit persnickety. The views are spectacular, the food is creative but the portions are small and not extremely tasty. The burrata appetizer was delicious and the drinks are well-made.

The food and sangria that we got were both great but the waiter we had was not so great. He served us with bare minimum care and when we asked for recommendations/what most people got on the Summerlicious menu he replied with, "there's only 4 options it's not that difficult" - this was definitely not the response we were looking for.

View was spectacular. App & entree were amazing. Dessert (the panacotta) was just okay. Service was great from most but not from one server. Definitely worth it for the view.

Food was delicious, every bite is full of flavour. Presentation was beautiful. Had lunch with a friend who was running really late and the waiter was so nice, not pushy at all even though the kitchen was closing soon. Amazing view of the lake!

For me canoe excelled in both ambiance and service. The restaraunt has some of the best views of the City, the decor is stunning, and the open concept kitchen is a treat to behold. The quality of the service is what really blew me away. The staff were incredibly professional while simultaneously making everyone at my table feel comfortable and welcome. No one was ever wanting for anything. The staff just always seemed to be there when you needed them without being overbearing.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented but nothing overly memorable. The plate looks amazingly elaborate but the flavours were very basic (tasty but basic). For example, I had the rye ice cream for desert and it just tasted like really good vanilla. I was expecting something I've never tried before.

Overall had a great time and had a delicious meal. Will definitely try to come back in the future.

The service is ok. Food is average. We picked sumerlicious special menu, main course beef steak is very tough, side rib tastes like over boiled then oven roasted, not good. We asked for a window table when booking but did not get it. Very disappointing.

We went to Canoe for their Summerlicious lunch and had an amazing time! The service was amazing and the food was so delicious. Our experience started with the friendly hostess, I believe her name is Lindsay when we arrived. Thanks for a great date day Summerlicious experience!

Always intending to dine at Canoe, we took advantage of summerlicious to see if the food was worth all the hype. While it was tasty is was not awesome.
Some say it’s because some restaurants don’t try at summerlicious, if true - what a wasted opportunity to gain new patrons. Suggest it as a great place to enjoy a drink with a spectacular view.

We had Summerlicious menu, from all appetizers I would recommend salmon, and For the main I would recommend lamb it was amazing. But the rest main courses were not as good, beef dish was Dry and Chewy and tasteless and fish dish was too Salty. The service was excellent, friendly staffs and amazing Views.

The waiter and servers were all efficient and very attentive. Our water was always refilled without asking, and each course was described when they were brought out. Each dish was not only delicious but was plated beautifully and looked like a piece of art. I only wish the portions were slightly larger. The view was amazing and added to the special ambiance.
