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 Anacleto Design, 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 John Horne's inspired regional Canadian cuisine. The menu showcases the freshest and finest Canadian fish, game and produce, as well as an outstanding selection of Canadian vintages. "All that is Canadian defines Canoe." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

Was a wonderful night for a celebration and the view was spectacular on a clear night seeing right across the lake. Food, drink, and service were all excellent. A little loud but not to the point where it really got in the way of conversation.

Food was fantastic.

However, just as I thought they “ran out” of the wine I picked out of the entire menu. Of course, they recommended something similar but more expensive.

Noise level was horrendous. I had to yell across to talk to my friend as we were unable to hear each other at all.

Not sure if I would recommend to others.

I think this was one of the best meals I have ever had. Everything was stellar, I can only give compliments!

The ambience was great and the view was beyond belief; definitely try and ask for a window seat if you can. (the view is great from any point in the restaurant, but it is absolutely next level at the window’s edge) (And sorry for the terrible pun)

I think Canoe is a good restaurant for the vibe; unfortunately, the food wasn’t that spectacular. We had the Elk loin and the duck breast.

The view from the restaurant is extraordinary. Floors around perimeter were quite dusty and needed a good wash, otherwise nice restaurant. Have been here several times previously in evening and greatly enjoyed the food. Husband really enjoyed the tomato and burrata appetizer. Mushroom soup was good, but had a strange sour note to it that I could not place. We both ordered the lobster clubhouse sandwich. Was more toast than filling - did not feel it was worth $27 by any means. While eating, the table next to us received what we believed to be the short rib entree and it smelled and looked wonderful. Felt sad that we had not gotten that instead as we had considered it. Service was fantastic however and did not feel rushed at all - server encouraged us to relax and enjoy the drinks and view.

It is a very nice restaurant. It has a great view. If the weather is good, you will see very far from there.

Food was phenomenal, service was amazing. My boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and the server kindly brought us a small dessert (on the house) at the end of our meal with “Happy Anniversary” written on the plate. Would definitely recommend!

Food was great, but the server wasn't.
I was asked to add some flavour on the dish which costs me extra $25, without explaining the extra cost.
I just answered when I double checked it.

My husband and I made reservations for a Friday night and we are so glad we did. The view was amazing, the food was impressive and tasty and the service was perfect, our server was so friendly and knowledgeable and made some recommendations on the menu that we ended up loving. Its pricey but worth it and we cant wait to go back for our next special occasion.

The view, service and food at Canoe was spectacular.
Definitely recommend trying this gem. We were lucky that it was a relatively clear day to be able to truly enjoy the amazing view of the city.

Beautiful room, fantastic view, warm professional service and very good food. I'd go for a drink anytime but while I loved the food it was perhaps a little too fancy for its own good, but that is a small complaint. When in the mood for a grand meal with commensurate prices, Canoe is pretty great.

A spectacular meal in a great setting. The food is at the top in Toronto. Such innovative interesting fresh local ingredients. Wonderful flavours and textures. So creative without being fussy. Excellent service from Godwin. We had a super time and can't wait to return.

Everyone seems to be there on business even though it’s Remembrance Day. Duck was delicious but the mushroom soup that’s been there for decades was a tad disappointing.

The 'childhood memories' tasting menu was very creative and fun. I was left a little hungry however. I would have liked slightly larger portions of the tater tots and grilled cheese or a larger portion of the the main dish (halibut). The 'ants on a log' was our favourite but the 'fun dip' was barely edible. Our server could have been more attentive, we had to get up and find a water jug placed away from the table and pour our own. We felt this was important since my companion had not ordered any other beverage.
