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.

Great place to just grab drinks and admire the view. The food was rather mediocre and the service was not well-timed.

I dont leave reviews but this was just the worst....service fell short of 5star. Hostess rude, food mediocre. Only option was tasting menu 7 or 9 courses - 2 amuse and 3 dessert. What a joke. Also timing was 30min between courses - had to leave after 2.5hrs without finishing last 2 courses.

Nice setting for a date. Amazing view of the city. Good ambience. Perfect noise level where you can hear each other talk.

My special request was not met. I also booked this for my mother’s birthday but none of the staff even mentioned about it or even asked if we were celebrating any special occasion. Some of the dishes were too salty and the server never asked us how the food was. Was very disappointed overall for the price we paid.

The setting is beautiful, overlooking the lake. The service was great. The food was a mixed bag - some of it very good, some OK and several dishes were so "interesting" that the overall taste was sacrificed in the process. The 9 dish tasting menu is massive with two large main courses towards the end.
Overall, really wanted to like it more due to the service, location and ambiance, however there were several significant "hit and miss" dishes. Very marginal on the value front...

It was our second visit in a very long time. The chef’s rail was not available but our table was the closest to the kitchen which was amazing. The food was amazing but I did not enjoy the last 3 services ( deserts) which all had a very acidic component or fish/sea related. It could have been « fun » but for me it was too much and killed the dish. Hopefully next time it will be different ;-)

The 9 course dinner menu was absolutely fantastic! The harmony of tastes is indescribable. Wine pairing was a great addition to the whole experience as well. I can't emphasize how much we enjoyed the service enough.

Over the last few years Canoe just continues to get better and better. There isn’t another restaurant in the city they offers what they offer. The views, the service, and the food…. Oh my, the food! Chef Ron and his team are churning out some of the most unique and tasty dishes that make up one of the best tasting menus in the city. Please keep up the exceptional work, and thank you for being there to provide an escape for us all. Simply amazing!

We were a party of four and everyone loved all the courses, even the picky eater in our group. If people hadn’t have been watching I would have licked the last of the foie gras off my plate! Our friends had the steak frites and thought it was better than they’ve had at upscale restaurant Cafe de Paris in Geneva (who only do steak frites!). The kitchen kindly took food restrictions into account and omitted and substituted where necessary. My Husband never eats sweets but he helped devour the screech tart. Unfortunately I don’t remember our server’s name (I apologize for that) but he was very attentive and informative. We will definitely be back!!!

Toronto's BEST as far as we are concerned. Brilliant cuisine (chefs Ron, Dez and team exceptional) wonderful service (thanks Steven), great cellar with sommelier Billy and an amazing view. From the moment you arrive it's a perfect experience. Excellent teamwork in every area with a super vibe. Thank you for a fabulous birthday evening.

An outstanding tasting-menu, wow! Doesn’t get more Canadiana than this. The seafood and the nose to tail courses of the tasting menu were outstanding, finished off the evening with creative & divine desserts. The menu was well-designed, thoughtful with a perfect balance of land & ocean. I couldn’t think of a more welcoming way at the most opulent restaurant in town to celebrate the end of these ‘crazy prolonged restrictions’ imposed by our government. Hats off to the executive chef and his entire culinary team!

Note: all my previous dining experiences at Canoe were equally memorable. This tasting-menu was ultra special.
