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 tasting menu at Canoe is extraordinary. Featuring delicious preparations of mostly Canadian ingredients, each course was exceptional. If we lived in Toronto we would go often.

    Did not enjoy my experience here with my wife. We went on her birthday and wanted to celebrate but they didn't allow anything inside the restaurant not even basic stuff due to their No fire policy. I wish they let us know sooner that we would have planned accordingly. Do not recommend at all for Birthday events.

    La nourriture est incroyable ! Rien à dire là-dessus. Dommage que le service ne soit pas à la hauteur de la cuisine. Le serveur était froid et peu sympathique. Les busseurs qui nous ont apporté les plats semblaient ne pas connaître les ingrédients et étaient difficiles à comprendre. En revanche, les hôtes et hôtesses étaient très gentils et souriants. Même la fille qui a débarrassé notre table était très sympathique. Donc un peu dommage de ce côté la

    It was great overall. View was amazing, so were food. Atmosphere is more energetic than I had expected; quiet date night thing still works, but more lively social gatherings are probably better suited. Serving speed was glacial tho; whole tasting menu took almost 3 hours.

    I had heard of this restaurant many times, and I am so pleased I chose to go there. The food was absolutely delicious! I had just had a meal over the weekend at the Ritz Carlton Boston that was nothing at all in comparison to the one at Canoe. The food at Canoe was FAR better than in Boston! I was extremely impressed. Our service was also FAR better with a friendly and knowledgeable (and not pushy) server and nice staff. I will return with tourists (for the view) and for another special occasion. I will highly recommend this restaurant. Keep up the amazing work. Thank you.

    View was great and the service was good. Unfortunately the food was lukewarm and no one wants to pay $60 for a lukewarm steak or fish. It was probably better hot but we’ll never know. It’s just disappointing. Unless you are paying for the views there are plenty of better options.

    Canoe is an excellent choice for dinner for a special occasion whether it is personal or business. It is expensive, but the service, food and ambiance are worth the expense. Our lead waiter explained all the dishes we asked about and the servers explained the dishes in detail after presenting them. The food was stunning. I won’t bother to provide the detail. Next time I get to Canoe we’ll get the tasting menu with the wine flight.

    While the view was amazing, the service we received was subpar, especially considering that the server asked if my allergies were “merely a preference” or if they were “real” after having practically tossed the menus onto our table.

    Great place for a romantic or business dinner. Even during a snow storm at night, the view was stunning. Food is excellent, and staff respond well to special requests (e.g., table, birthday surprise). Special kudos to waiter Fred, who did an excellent job waiting our table and who is also very funny person.

    During our visit to Canoe on March 15th for a special birthday celebration, our evening was negatively compromised by significant service delays and a disconcerting interaction with a member of the management team. Despite the restaurant not being at full capacity, our attempts to engage with the staff were met with apparent avoidance. The situation escalated when we were informed that the service delay was deliberate, attributed to staff discomfort in addressing an adjustment we had made to our seating to better enjoy the view, one of the merits of this restaurant. This unexpected lack of communication and courtesy shockingly contrasted with the exceptional cuisine and ambiance of the restaurant, falling short of the high standards we anticipated from Canoe's esteemed reputation.
