  • For the price you pay this place is way over rated. Small portions and stuffy service. If your not the Bay Street high roller they don"t want you here. Save your money and time and head over to Scaramouche for a better view and food.

  • Order: bison

  • If you're looking for fine dining with great service and a relaxing atmosphere in Toronto, you'll need to look up to the sky and search for Canoe.

    Food: The menu is simple yet it's high quality and well prepared dishes with great wine and drinks pairing. We decided to go with an app, an entree, and dessert - although the dishes didn't surprise us, they still met our expectations of high quality. The real treats were the Oyster Boy's Finest and Pan Seared Quebec Foie Gras, each being a great start to our meal. Although it was great, it didn't end with a bang. The meal kept its pace right through to dessert.

    Service: The wait staff were very attentive and accomodating. Our server was attentive to our needs, and was engaged without being too involved in our dining experience. I was impressed by the service from everyone this evening!

    Atmosphere: I would definitely recommend trying to reserve a table by the window. The place is beautiful with the simple and modern decor, though the view of the city is an added bonus to your meal.

    It's definitely worth the visit if you're looking to dine in the sky with a great meal, but be prepared to empty out your wallet, because this place isn't cheap.

  • Order: Oyster boy's finest, pan seared foie gras, Alberta lamb, 45 day dry aged rib eye, rolled butter tart, sticky toffee date pudding

  • I really like dining and eating the finest quality of foods. Sometimes the grocery stores don't have the best stuff so you have to really examine your produce. Jburgler has been stoned for days and ate some bad dates. Wrecking crew will be up soon to get their drink on.

  • Order: whiskey

  • This was my second time visiting Canoe, and though my first visit was to die for, this occasion didn't quite measure up. My friend and I both had the salad to start, which was good. I had a nice strawberry lemonade which didnt blow me away in the same way that my lemonade with chili peppers did, but was decent. My friend had a shandy, which she did not like and switched for sangria, which she adored. We both had the chicken, which was wonderful and dessert was good as well. I will maybe try again in the winter, perhaps they just offer a better menu at that time. The view was lovely, but the place where we were seated on my first visit was nicer. I requested a window seat which the staff procured. Overall, a nice visit.

  • Order: salad, chicken, raspberry mouse

  • My girlfriend want to come here for summerlious but told me how hard it was to book reservations. I called in 3 times to finally get to someone on the line.

    But after getting there i know why there was such a hassle to get a reservation. The food was excellent the first time I tried Steak medium rare from Calgary (they actually ship it), i have it on my display picture. scallops were interesting my girlfriend had pouched tuna very good, and her dessert lets just say i eat her tart. Their bread and humus was great as well.

    Service was wonderful they are always making sure you have everything and the chef treat you sooo well. You get a great view of Toronto and Center Island.

    Perfect dinner date

  • Order: Scallops, Calgary Steak, Poached Tuna, Berry Tart, Ice Tea

  • Very hip atmosphere, annoying beating music (couldn'd make it out), loud chatter, excellent view, young business buzz, very happening (whatever that means). Sorry but the food was good but not the main reason to go there. Great presentation but not outstanding flavours.

  • Order: steak, cheeses, wine

  • What an experience! Canoe gets amazing ratings for a reason. I booked a table for two for summerlicious and it was superb. The menu was a little limited but that’s expected with summerlicious.

    The wait staff are simply amazing there, extremely helpful, all meals explained as they’re brought out, tables prepped properly, cleared properly. They come across very friendly and not pretentious at all.

    The food itself was perfect, my girlfriend and I had the beef tenderloin and it was cooked perfectly and was delicious. I had some cheese for dessert, and she had a rhubarb tart, also delicious.

    This is truly a fine dinning experience, it is definitely worth the money!

  • Order: goat cheese salad, beef tenderloin, duo of cheeses

  • Will start with the pros: Beautiful atmosphere and breathtaking view of the city as a backdrop (we were lucky enough to get a window seat). Excellent, knowledgable, non-snooty and attentive service.

    The cons: The food itself was only so-so (for fine dining, that is). It was good, don't get me wrong--but I certainly didn't feel like it was worth the money we paid for it. It just wasn't to die for...

  • Order: gnocchi with sweetbread, suckling pig, warm sticky date pudding, fireweed honey butter tart, coffee, wine

  • My friend and I visited Canoe to try the winterlicious 2010 menu at Canoe. We were really excited and Canoe met and exceeded all our expectations. We rode the elevator up the TD Tower and were greeted warmly by Canoe staff. We were seated right next to the window and the view was unbelievable. Ive eaten at the 360 restaurant and somehow this was even better. The service was prompt but our server's english wasn't very good so there was no opportunity to get chatty. The atmosphere was a little intimidating and I felt underdressed, though it was only lunch. People around us were wearing suits and everyone else looked like they were there only for winterlicious. The food was incredible, the flavours are so innovative and mouth watering. Ive never eaten food like this before. I was a little anxious, not sure if I would like what I ordered, but all the tastes melded perfectly. My companions food was great too. I was served a wonderful beverage which I selected off the menu which was lemonaid with chilli and peppers in it. It didnt sound appetizing but it was fantastic and months later I am still thinking about it. All the hype surrounding Canoe is merited, its amazing and I hope to bring a new friend to experience Canoe for Summerlicious.

  • Order: Warm Nothern Woods Mushroom and Smoked Chicken Tartlette, Goat Cheese Tortellini, Warm Nova Scotia Gingerbread &Sour CreamGelato
