Canoe Restaurant and Bar

CAN$51 and over
Contemporary Canadian
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 Solid Design Creative, 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 Ron McKinlay’s inspired regional Canadian cuisine.

    The service was amazing! Beautiful space and we really enjoyed the food but the drinks and presentation were the two things that stood out to us. I recommend trying the pork chops and their lychee martini.

    Tremendous all around. From the amazingly delicious tasting menu, to the impeccable service, to the stunning views, this was an experience to remember for our 20th anniversary. And I even got a bottle of their bespoke Canoe Rye Whiskey to remember the whole thing. An experience not to be missed for any visit to Toronto. Thank you, Canoe!

    Everything was delicious! But what takes this place to the next level is the service. Appetizers arrived all at once and cleared all at once. The main meal also arrived all at once anyway and each server took the time to explain each dish to each person. The servers were knowledgeable about the dishes as well as recommendations were given for drinks. The evening was absolutely exquisite!

    The food, drink, service and ambiance were all wonderful. Our server, Jesus, was very helpful and gave us good advice on food combinations and wine pairings along with impeccable service at every turn. We both enjoyed our appetizers, scallop en croute for my wife and a surprising truffled Perigord wing for me. Both dishes were beautifully presented explosions of flavour. We both had the Haida Gwai Albacore Tuna as a main and we were impressed with the great match up of tastes within the dish. Certainly among the best tuna dishes I have ever had. Starting the meal we also enjoyed their in-house cocktails. For those who like a little bite in their drink I recommend the yellow dogwood. For something aromatic and soothing, try the hummingbird. Both cocktails were a delight, as were the wines we tried with the meal. This was a 50th wedding anniversary dinner and Canoe certainly did its best to make this a special evening. We left with a happy glow.

    It took 3 hours to have the full “taste canoe” menu to be served. Too much of goat elements were used in the recipe and I’m not a big fan of goat milk flavor so that was a minus. Favorite course was the pig’s trotter and the crispy oyster. Overall I would rate 3-4/5 for the food.

    I must mention that I'm not giving the venue a 5-star rating primarily due to the reception I received upon arrival. Initially, the hostess informed me that I was too early for my reservation. I was taken aback since I was merely 10 minutes early, which did not make me feel welcomed. She then insisted that I had just made the reservation, which was incorrect; I had actually booked the table two weeks prior for a business meeting with a client. Following this initial encounter, my waiter was consistently welcoming and attentive. He treated both me and my clients with exceptional hospitality and courtesy. The food was also excellent. However, the initial impression was not positive and remains the most memorable aspect of my visit. The hostess made me feel unwelcome. Therefore, I am uncertain about returning. I visited May 16, at 12pm.

    Lovely dining above the smoky skies of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands. Busy Canoe offers fresh takes on classic dishes from chef @rwmckinlay. Don’t miss the stunning Onion Soup starter, velvety, Parmesan-laced and finished with bay laurel oil. Friendly service at every level.

    Ordered the oysters. I usually love oysters but these were the absolute worst I’ve ever eaten. It tastes spoiled and rancid. Had to send it back. The mains were very small. I ordered the short rib for $82, had minimal flavour. The side potatoes were decent. My friend ordered the salmon. It had next to no seasoning on it, just seemed like salt. The desserts weren’t good at all. The brown sugar tart was recommended but wasn’t sweet and had a weird flavour. Also tried the devils food cake and it was just ok. I left feeling sick from the oysters and everyone at the table was still hungry. However, our server was generally nice. Drinks were not very good. Mine just tasted like a flavoured water. I definitely won’t be returning here. Food is not good at all and definitely not worth the price. If you really want a view of the city, there are many other better restaurants than Canoe.

    1- We booked the table for Mother’s Day but the note on the table said “ happy birthday “. 2- Before confirming the reservation I spoke with the restaurant and I was told a kids menu is being prepared, however upon arrival we realized there is no particular menu and it’s just very limited choices for our two daughters. 3- The napkin on the table was stained with food 4- from the reputation of the restaurant I would expect much better hospitality and engagement, which we felt the lack of. Overall experience was an OK. But It wasn’t defiantly the quality I was expected from this restaurant.

    The view was incredible and the service was outstanding. My table did the testing menu and it did not feel rushed. The pacing was great and allowed for conversation. The chefs were very good about accommodating several people with dietary restrictions. While some of the dishes were different then the rest of the table, they were still put together well and flowed with all the other dishes. .

    The view incredeble, the food is ok. ( few dishes were actually amazing but the barley and the pasta dish arr not worth it.)The service sucks- the waitress forgot to get us drinks menu was always looking around for whatever reason, constantly forgot to refill our drinks. The other servers that were supposed to explain the food to us were mumbling plus the noise therefor I still don't know what I ate. But the thing that frustrated me the most are the washrooms- dirty smelly nasty. If you ready to spend that kind of money for food ho to Don Alfonso or Alo or Victoria, there you will get your money worth.
