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.

    This restaurant came highly recommended. It appeared, if you did not order the tasting menus they appeared disinterested. My Halibut was served on a mound a white mashed potatoes. The fish was over cooked. Very little vegetable of color on the plate. The salmon was just average. All in all a high expectation experience that did not deliver

    This is third time of visiting wonderful Canoe. Past has been their signature tasting menu at dinner and this was first time visiting on lunch time. I was mostly surprised that food quality and presentation were so far from what I have experienced before to the level I doubt if it is indeed same Restaurant. Service of the staff was also dry and rushed. Even if they still have a great view and lunch could be an option for a quick business meal, I would not come again for lunch at least.

    Of course Canoe was a great experience! Famous, trendy, big Toronto caché, great view. All of those. Terrific service. Haute cuisine of course. I had the crab porridge for an appetizer, which was a unique food experience, with crunchy grains on the bottom, foie gras froth on top, and delicious crab/chicken in the middle. Just what you expect. But....the fact is, that there are comparable outstanding dining experiences at restaurants from Quebec City to Vancouver, where you are paying 50-75% of the bill at Canoe! Our bill (with a total of three glasses of wine) came to $130 per person (group of 3) before taxes and tip. Really? So that is why it gets a 4 and not a 5 in my book.

    Menu was pricey but I expected that, given the location. I ordered the halibut and it was way overcooked, dry and chewy. I didn’t send it back because it was a business lunch. Waiter did not check back to see that the food was OK.

    My friends and I had an amazing time at Canoe restaurant. Easy to find and has parking, altho the parking is quite confusing, but its good considering how hard it is to find parking in Toronto. Food was great! Small portions of starters but still shareable and taste really good! We ordered that steak and it was so delicious, cooked according to our liking! Food was pricey but worth it. The view was very nice, we went for dinner, we are planning to come back again! Staff were friendly and Fred"s service was awesome and welcoming! Definitely recommend this place!

    The food was great except the main court, the surf and turf just ok, nothing special. And the steak from tournedo rossini was great, but the mushrooms and the potatoes was extremely salty.

    Went for an Anniversary dinner with my partner. Requested for halal options but there were not any. Menu was super small with just okay dishes. Requested for a nice table with a view and they didn’t even give that since that is only for VIP’s l. Server was very not pleasant at all and looked like he wasn’t happy to be there. I don’t think I will go again

    We had a vegetarian tasting menu. Overall the food was very filling, portions were too big and we felt bloated after we ate. All the dishes had some type of vinegar in it, which we found odd. The server was a big aggressive with how they placed items on the table/picked things up.

    To summarize, Canoe is a pseudo-Fine dinning establishment on the strive. Its air of arrogance within its management and service staffs has no place in the now new and dynamic progressive Toronto dining scene. Visit was less than impressive and food was average at best. The pricing of their menu is the only fine-dining aspect that Canoe got right. It will be a tall order( no pun intended) for my return voluntarily.
