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.

    Restaurant is in the hub of Downtown Toronto, which attracted us. CN Tower was visible from every table, which is very much worth to get good pictures. Food quality & presentation were mind blowing. Customer service was excellent especially Sarah's, she is very lovely & was very helpful throughout our dinner. Overall great dining experience!!

    The service was non existent, the food is best described as self-indulgent and we were surrounded by social media “influencers” posing for pictures. It was a very disappointing experience.

    We were a group of 5 adults. We tried the tasting menu. We weren’t super thrilled about the menu and the combination of flavours. It started pretty good and as we got closer to the end, the flow of the meal and the combination of flavours was very strange, especially the last 2 desserts. The last dessert looked like a combination of a bunch of supermarket dry sponge cake pieces and some beet ice cream with marmalade beet candies, very strange and not tasty at all. How hard is it to get the dessert to be good?! Too much effort to combine sweet and savoury with strange beet obsession. There has got to be a better balance. It wasn’t our first tasting menu and we are very adventurous when it comes to food. We just weren’t impressed with the menu and probably would recommend a different place for those who are interested in tasty dishes. Other than that, the service was great and the waiters were great too.

    Canoe has a fantastic view, no matter where you sit! Overall food was delicious, service was impeccable and desserts were cherry on top. Our best part of the experience was the main course and the desserts, appetizers didn’t wow us though the presentation was beautiful. Highly recommended for any occasion and it’s kid friendly.

    Dinner was absolutely brilliant. A welcome change from those pedestrian predictable 'gourmet' menus with chef Ron and team offering such interesting food (amazing lamb). Excellent service (thank you Sarah) and such a fun vibe ....and then there is the gorgeous view. Took an international traveler friend and they were totally impressed with the whole experience.

Every dish was excellent and would recommend trying their tasting menu. Great experience and had a great time.

    The menu is not for every taste, it consists mostly of seafood, and I love seafood, however the taste of the salmon was so bad that one bite of the dish was enough to know how not worthy both the taste and price was. The portions are utterly small and overpriced for what’s being offered. Overall great view and ambiance but not great food.

    The location, setting, and atmosphere in the restaurant were all perfect. Strangely the food was a slight disappointment and didn't give us the 'Wow!' we had hoped for. It could have been the dishes we ordered, however. For example, the Bison Tartare was tasty but most of the taste came from the asparagus and other vegetables. Similarly, although the scallop en croute was cleverly presented the scallop was overwhelmed by the other ingredients. Overall, the restaurant experience was very good but the food was not as good as we had expected.

    Great food with a great view. Our server was well informed and helpful. My only complaint is that our last three courses came very close together (before the plates from the previous course we're cleared because we were still eating them). Probably because it was getting late, but if the restaurant wants to close before early, they shouldn't allow reservations for the tasting menu at 8pm

    An extraordinary dining experience. I chose this restaurant to celebrate my 50th birthday and the pescatarian testing menu ranks amongst the most memorable meals of my entire life. The service is second-to-none as is the considerable wine list. It is no wonder why this remains the jewel in the O&B crown.

    Went for the tasting menu and I found it so salty. Their is flavour and then there is over use of salt. I have been to a Canoe tasting menu before and this one did not rock my boat. Boring, salty and not memorable. Will not be coming for awhile. The place was packed again with the noisy Bay Street crowd and there was a child running through the restaurant. Not going back

    Canoe was one of the first fancy restaurants that I experienced in Toronto over 20 years ago. Today it is a very different restaurant. The service is not as discreet, the up-selling is relentless, the appetizers and mains are rapidly served by an assembly line kitchen. The foie gras and porc were disappointing. The deserts are mostly pre-fab. And the prices are criminally high relative to quality. Most of the patrons appeared to be tourists completing a circuit that evidently includes a forgettable dinner at an overpriced restaurant with spectacular city views. What a shame.

    The salmon came with a gooey sauce that tasted like mashed peas, and was too salty. The salmon was pan seared properly. There was a screech tart that was ruined by the server pouring far too much melted butter sauce on it without asking. We didn’t eat it for fear of an early grave from the cholesterol.
