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

Canoe Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
J'adore ce restaurant. La vue est magnifique, l'ambiance est conviviale, le service est impeccable et la nourriture est incroyable! La seule chose qui cloche, et c'est un détail anodin et futile, c'est que la robe des hôtesses n'est vraiment pas seyante.
I was incredibly disappointed. We got there early to enjoy a drink at the bar. We felt like we were sitting at the airport lounge. We then moved to our dinner table which was nice. Great view! The mushroom soup tasted like mud. My partner' duck was Ok but cold. The waiter was very good. We will never go there again.
Great spot to bring someone out of town for a great meal and a nice view. The menu is not too interesting, but everything is tasty. Service is also attentive.
Food was amazing!! The service however was very disappointing - we felt rushed throughout the meal despite the fact that waiter took a long time to take our orders. We waited 15 minutes before placing a drink order. Probably won’t go back.
Nice ambience. Great service, from the greeter to the server. There's someone always fixing the napkin at my table if I happen to put it back on the table unfolded...that was quite an extra service. My wife didn't like the dessert that much, and was taken out of the bill...overall, great food. Will come back here again. Really liked the hot plate foie gras app and the steak for main was on point!! We got a table with a nice view as well...though hallways are a bit tight.
Was visiting Toronto for the day with 2 girlfriends. Each of us had a different dish, was very tasty. Our server was so friendly and helpful. Thank you, was a great time for us
Great Food and service as always! Went for a business lunch and my clients were thrilled with the entire experience.
Great experience, always impeccable service, different dishes, great wine. The view amazing.
Great view of the city and lake. Food was even better then the view. Fresh fish was out of the park. Great flavor on tuna tartare that was truly like butter. Extra sweet at the end was a nice touch.
An excellent experience overall. Everything was perfect. The seafood platter and meat dishes were exquisitely prepared and very tasty. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about both food and wines and only needed a few words to come up with potential suggestions. This was impressive, both very professional while remaining very friendly. I would struggle to find anything to improve. Keep it up!
Had the tasting menu. The only disappointment was dessert-otherwise it was outstanding!
Great food great location
The view from here is outstanding. Made much more appealing in that the food and service is fab too!!
The night view was very nice. The food was awesome, and we could spend a pleasant time in our last night of Toronto sightseeing.
One of my favourite restaurants in the city. Never disappoints. Great service and incredible and inventive food. Will be back to enjoy the cuisine and view
The service was out of this world, our server Jesus made a unique experience. Food was refined and delicious
This was our second time at the restaurant. We took our visitors from Europe to enjoy the food and the view of Toronto. It was a special treat for all of us: the food was excellent (in my husband's and my case, the Tea Smoked Duck Breast). The absolute highlight was the Mint dessert which both my friend and I had ordered. Apparently, we both like mint, and the different textures on the plate wowed us both. We had a great time and will come again if we want to show off Toronto's dining scene and view to guests.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. The service and food were incredible! The view is beautiful, we had a window table. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
My breath was taken away the moment I entered the restaurant. The view is STUNNING. The Gentlemen who was serving us was given free reign over ordering for my date. His choices were off the charts. He was very well versed in the menu and set a wonderful and welcoming ambiance to an unforgettable evening. Thank you!!
I had booked the restaurant a month in advance stating it was for my anniversary. I had indicated that I wanted a romantic seating area with a great view. When we arrived, we were originally being seated by the kitchen near the wine ice bin. Then when I complained, we were given a seat between 2 large groups of people. I had to ask again to be moved. Then the server's pace was quite slow, that we chose to have our dessert somewhere else.
Your view brought us to your restaurant, but your lack of effort in making our special occasion most memorable, has made us not want to come back.
We had the worst table in the house. At the waiters cashier booth. Very noisy.
The main course halibut was lukewarm and had no flavour.
The service was good. Two courses were too little to be called a course.
Other than that was the food good.
Great atmosphere. The waiter was attentive. Best food ever ! We enjoyed the halibut and the ribeye steak. The side of northern mushrooms were to die for. It was a relaxing , romantic evening with a beautiful view.
Très belle vue de Toronto, service impeccable, déco classique et sobre, pas très bruyant le midi, belle vue sur la cuisine qui est ouverte et ses nombreux chefs qui s’y affairent...
Another wonderful lunch! Low key yet attentive service and exquisite food.
Got a last minute reservation and were so glad! Setting awesome, food and service outstanding! Wait staff was like a well oiled machine. Oh yes, and the view was stunning. Definitely recommend!
My friend & I had a special occasion reunion tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was perfect, innovative & delicious. The spectacular view was wonderful!
We highly recommend Canoe for special occasion dining, but found the final tab very expensive! Our waiter Gian-Luca was attentive, gracious and deserves a rating of 10+!
If there were a correlation from price to service than it was worth every penny! Food to price value we found all items overpriced!
The food and drink were fantastic and well worth the hefty price tag. The view was great and really contributed to a wonderful ambiance.
A very pleasant environment, with few distractions. Good size tables with adaquate space between tables. Menu offered a variety of selections. The food was first class. Our server (Faisal?) was excellent.
We had the tasting menu with matched wines and every course was both unique and delicious with perfectly matched wines! An absolute joy of an evening with excellent service and superb views and ambience. If you are a proper foodie you will love this.
The food was excellent in taste and cooked very well. The desert, classic canoe butter tart, in particular was the best!
Our server was great and we were pleased with the service.
Highlight of our visit was when my son told the receptionist that he loved to cook, he was given a chef's hat signed by all the chefs of the restaurant and the kitchen tour made his day and of course made us feel happy too! An experience he will always remember fondly :-)
Went out of their way to accommodate my reservation request to add a candle to our dessert and they even decorated it by writing Happy Birthday on the plate.
The server was not aware of my request and took longer than expected to have it delivered but he apologized and told us the dessert was on the house.
Food was exquisite and service was exceptional. I would come back in a heartbeat.
We made a reservation for my wife's birthday and the restaurant gave us a great table, with wonderful service and special dessert for her. Additionally, when a few bar patrons stood near our table admiring the view - Canoe took some items off of our bill to apologize for the disturbance.
Fantastic experience, would recommend and will definitely go back.
Very sweet place and enjoy the time. The review is very beautiful.
Nice upper scale restaurant, with delicious mails but too expensive.
Not my cup of tea. Menu was too weird. Portions were rediculously small and super expensive. Drinks were a fortune. What we ate was good but not exquisite. I would never go back. 4 people came to 550.00 dollars and we were starving.
Food was alright, but the view was amazing and the service was really great.
Great food. Wonderful view. Excellent service. Interesting menu and lots of Niagara wine.
Canoe is an amazing restaurant. Our waiter was wonderful and all staff could not have done more for us. The food was fantastic and the cocktails awesome. Our waiter suggested our wines and he was spot on! You have to go to Canoe...it would be a crime not to.
-service is very prompt
-waiters are polite
-didn't get a window seat but from what we saw, the view is very nice
-restaurant is clean
-food item variety is limited
Excellent choice for adventurous eaters. Vegetarian meal choice was not as enjoyable. Service was Excellent, view spectacular, beautiful ambiance.
