    I’ve eaten at Canoe several times in the past few years and it’s always wonderful but last night something was off. My NY strip came out so rare it was borderline seared. Had to send it back to get it to medium rare as I ordered. Took 15 minute to do that. Room was extremely noisy.

    Hartman is my favorite server!!— and has been since meeting him a year ago! But, for the first time in my life, my salmon entree was not seasoned at all— like forgetting your pants!! No light tangy sauce, nada 👎 Because Hartman is a professional, he took the meal off my bill and gave me and my guest complimentary coffee. He will be the reason I will come back to Canoe 🛶 It is the best restaurant in Atlanta 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Great ambience, all staff personnel super friendly and ready to assist. Our waiter was awesome. Service is impeccable. Food was great as usual..presentations are excellent and food is expertly prepared for the most part. I had braised rabbit entree...the rabbit was a bit dry and chewy. Other than that, everything else was perfect. We will be back to dine again.

    It was way too noisy for me AND I would have expected a much better piece of meat then the $62 steak that I was served, extremely tough & hard to cut.

    Excellent! Easily one of the best meals I have had in Atlanta. The kangaroo "Wellington," Canoe's take on a beef Wellington, was utterly delightful. My duck breast and leg married a fusion of southern and East Asian flavors. My husband's rabbit, perfectly cooked and paired with seasonal vegetables, took him back to his family's roots. A hidden gem. Highly recommend.

    Canoe is, by far, the very best place for a celebration or just a good night out. (We were celebrating our galentine's brunch.) • Brunch cocktails: The bellini was perfect! • Love the basket of breakfast breads! • The she-crab soup was perfect, as always. • Just okay on the shrimp salad; we didn't expect the shrimp to be fried. But still good! Frank was our server, and he was GREAT.

     Amazing Experience. Our reservation was at 9:00 PM. We were sad as soon as we arrived. Our server was fabulous. We had a party of eight and we were all cater to individually. The food was amazing. For appetizers, we had a charcuterie board, fried calamari and two dozen of oysters !! everything was great ! The entrées came after shortly, and everyone loved their food. We will definitely be coming back again for a special occasion.
