Canoe Restaurant and Bar

CAN$51 and over
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.

    Canoe was very disappointing. The service and ambiance was excellent but the food was dismal although the presentation was beautiful. I had the bean salad which was not much more than raw green beens with sparse celeric dressing and sprouts, and Halibut for my main course. The fish was good but the accompaniments were lukewarm mashed potatoes. My partner had the tuna tartar which was very good and the fillet for main course which was also lukewarm, not particularly tender or tasty and the portion was ridiculously small. Both our cappuccinos were brought to the table immediately when we ordered and were cold. The menu is very small so I suspect all the food is prepared and plated in advance and only slightly heated before serving. The coffees had to have been sitting for a good amount of time to be that temperature. For all this we got a ludicrously expensive bill!

    Tasting menu is pretty good. Onion soup is served in an onion and has a seasoning that is green. This was dubbed shrek soup. Good food, not a fan of all the dishes, but each was tasty. Cocktails were decent as well. Will re attend.

    I Was celebrating my Birthday with my boyfriend. We enjoy dine in nice restaurants regularly. It was our first time to dine in this establishment after seeing positive reviews from others. But the experience was very poor. To start, we simply requested a table by the window weeks ago but it didn’t happen. We got a table with a long booth against the wall. We saw a female server was too lazy to walk down two steps to grab tray, and glasses. She walked by our table and show her backside beside our table to reach over the railing three times during our dinner. Shockingly enough she was the only server did that. She seems upset and definitely needs to be trained for fine dining etiquette. The tasting menus food was strange. The combination of flavors were seems to be done in fusion style but didn’t work. Like amateur chefs are cooking dishes and wanna to be fancy. It’s definitely not worth for $185+ per person for the taste and portion of the food. Overall, we left with a big disappointment and will not return to this restaurant.

    I guess maybe Valentines was a bad night to go.. the food was pretty average to be honest - the last 3 courses were almost arriving on top of each other.. so it was all a bit rushed in the end.. the food generally was just a bit hit and miss .. it felt a bit mass produced for a restaurant like this - the beef was great for one of us and overcooked for the other- the menu read great but the reality was a bit underwhelming- the setting is ok - nice view of course, but the room itself lacks intimacy and is a bit soulless. Service % choices started at 22%, which on a thousand dollar meal felt pretty steep - but maybe thats standard in Ca..? we're from UK - I expected 15-20 at a range? service was ok - about 7 different servers for us, which seemed odd?

    Food was excellent! They did even better accommodating my dairy allergy with a separate tasting menu for Valentine’s Day! The food was hot to taste and uniquely delicious! We will be back!! It would have been nice to have a window table for 2 with city views but hopefully next time :)

    All round a very good experience (again x 2). Great views from anywhere in the restaurant. Foods was delicious. Food presentation was on point for the most part (The kale wrapped lobster might need a re-think). The staff (especially our waiter George) were nothing short of exceptional.

    The 8 course tasting menu for Valentine's Day was absolutely wonderful. This was our first time at Canoe, and it won't be our last. Service was excellent, and each course had a delightful surprise (whether it was presentation, flavours, or texture). We we left, we each given a rose and a box of petits fours to share. Marvelous!

    Overall the food all tasted great and had some unique presentations. Some ingredient menu highlights were overshadowed by other ingredients where I would expect it to be the prominent taste such as the caviar soup. Unfortunately, we felt like our patronage was less important than the tables around us as we were told something was coming but never did. I suspect its due to us not being extravagent drinkers, and we werent worth the effort. Unfortunately It spoiled the mood for us.

    The service wasn’t really good in fact is my first time only give out 10% for the tips. I feel like the white lady is not in a moon to service us. Once we finish the meal she keep checking on us rushing us for the bill. Does feel like she have enough training for her to work in this place. by the way the place is super nice for a date.

    The window seats at the west end of the restaurant give the best views in my opinion. The tuna and food gras appetizer is not to be missed, fantastic flavours and textures. We then had the duck with port braised beets which was beautifully presented, although not a big portion was perfect in every way. I finished with the rice pudding and crispy white chocolate crumb, best ever. This restaurant is consistently good, staff are friendly and professional. Thank you

    From the moment we walked in, we were treated like royalty. We asked when setting the reservation for a window table and though they didn’t have one right away, we waited for a few minutes by the bar, had delicious cocktails, and one opened up very quickly. We had a view of the CN Tower. The service was fantastic. Everyone was friendly. Our server, Sara, was wonderful. She recommended perfect dishes to suit our tastes. The food was delectable. To start, my wife had the onion soup (to die for) and I had the scallop (delicious and very creatively prepared and presented). For mains, my wife had the salmon (which was great) and I had the fillet & cheek (magnificent). The portions were a bit on the small side, but it comes with the territory in a place like Canoe. All in all, a nearly perfect night. It’s pricey, but worth it. One criticism (though it was more about two particular members of the clientele) we sat next to two young men who had absolutely no respect for the restaurant or the other diners. They were dressed down and in sneakers, as if they were at a hot dog stand. One actually tried to vape in the restaurant (staff stopped them, of course). Personally, if I ran this amazing establishment, I would ask people who act like this to leave immediately and take their entitlement and disrespect elsewhere. It was the one tiny blemish on an otherwise perfect night. Keep up the amazing work, Canoe.
