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.

PLEASE NOTE: After careful consideration, our team has decided not to participate in this year’s Summerlicious program. Since reopening after a series of devastating lockdowns, we have continued to navigate industry challenges that would hinder our ability in delivering the best Summerlicious experience possible for our guests. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your continued support.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Canoe. The food and drinks were all exceptional. The most memorable dish was the Onion Soup. Amazing presentation and absolutely delicious. Our waiter, Jesus, was also wonderful and very professional. He made our experience that evening even better. Will definitely be back!

    Great food and an awesome wine pairing. Our main waiter was very good explaining about the wines, and he gave an outstanding service. All waiters serving us were good and professional. When we were about to leave my husband saw the house whisky on a display and we asked if we could by a bottle. Unfortunately they have just opened the last one for drinks. They offered to deliver a bottle from one of the other location at our hotel reception. So during the night I received an email confirming delivery and the next morning I picked it up at the reception. That is beyond excellent service - thanks so much for giving us a good vacation memory.

    We ordered the surf and turf, when the food came the server didn't known what cut was who's and it went back to the kitchen, when the meat came back, it was at best room temperature. We asked a simple question when the food came, "which one is the medium rare cut" and they didn't know, as a result paid the price.

    Fantastic cocktails and creative food selections, and the stunning view to top it off. I started with the bison tartare, then crispy pork jowl, Gouda, and rhubarb terrine for dessert. Server recommended wine accompaniments. Loved watching the planes land at Billy Bishop Airport on Toronto Island.

    Pretty disappointing, had the tasting menu a couple of highlights, beef fish tartare was good but the main fish halibut was overcooked and dry and the veal sausage dish was so overly salted barely edible. All a bit clumsy really.

    I saw some review who commented you paid for the view at Canoe. I agree but not totally, cos the food was good, presented nicely with thoughts, complimented with the innovative combination of ingredients and sauce, in the tasting menu, not 8 out of 8 dishes made a "wow" response, it was pleasant and refreshing overall. Service was excellent from our server and the sommelier. The view was beautiful throughout the dinner. The value was good, we will likely return on our next trip to Toronto.
