    As always, all who greet you plus the servers make you feel special. Unfortunately, our meals were not up to par this time around. The special was a salmon burger, but you couldn't really taste salmon--only the panko. Will this deter us from going back--not in a million years!! We love Canoe.

    A friend and I had a wonderful birthday lunch at Canoe yesterday. As always, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. A word of warning, though, if you order the truffle fries, appetizer, you won’t be hungry when your main course arrives! What a huge portion! Our server, Bo, was also terrific.

    My wife & have dined at Canoe for special events previously & the food & service were consistently very good. For this visit the Host's & the Bartender service was very good. Our server provided exceptional service and the ambiance dining outside and enjoying the gardens & the river was also exceptional. This was a special occasion as my wife & I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary later this month. We were surprised that only a breakfast/brunch menu was available at 2PM on a Saturday - there was no indication of this limitation on the Canoe's website. We ordered the House Smoked Salmon Appetizer which was covered in scallions - there was no indication on the menu of scallions being part of this appetizer. I ordered the Riverside - the scrambled eggs had no taste & were scattered with scallions (again no indication on the menu), the potato's had minimal taste were covered in scallions (again no indication on the menu). The bacon & the french taste were prepared well. My wife enjoyed the Grilled Atlantic Salmon. The cost & travel time for us to dine at the Canoe are higher but in the past have been well worth the visit. We had planned to come back for our anniversary on 4/24 but after this most recent experience with a breakfast/brunch only menu & subpar food we've changed our decision & will celebrate closer to home. We will likely visit in the future but will limit our dining to dinner with more menu options and when the bar on the river is open.

    Didn’t live up to the hype. Beautiful place, but the food was not anything special. The French toast was gummy, and the bread tasted stale. My steak and eggs special was ok. We usually stick with wine and mimosas, but tried a take on a Moscow mule mimosa. Way too strong, not that cold. Got more juice and ice for it, but couldn’t finish it. And the famous sticky buns were bad. Flat and hard like hockey pucks. Our server, Frank, was excellent though. Garden area was beautiful. Was expecting more from what I had read about.

    Menu is for the more adventurous and sophisticated palate. Had a booth by open kitchen….loud. But many better seating options to maximize the experience and enjoy the ambiance. If you’re looking for a break from the typical 4star steakhouse….Canoe is a great choice

    We have been celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, friends and family visiting at Canoe for close to 15 years. It is a special place. The setting is the best in town. Service is attentive, friendly and polished. Chris, our server this time was top notch. Food is good but nothing I would make a trip just for the food. But the overall experience is hard to beat and that is what brings us back.

    Our meal was exquisite! We had a truly memorable meal at dusk on Easter in the tranquil outdoor setting. Our server Jacob was attentive and professional, and also friendly. Excellent cocktails and delightfully interesting appetizers. Our entrees were outstanding as well, the steak was delectable. The perfect end to this evening was the J Martinez and Company espresso and coffee. Canoe was the perfect setting for our holiday celebration.

    As always, the Canoe experience was exceptional from the service to the ambience and the food. We were celebrating a birthday and it could not have been any more special. Tracy, our lead server was outstanding, as was her support team. I highly recommend Canoe for a special occasion or a night out.

    We love Canoe. Beautiful restaurant. We came 8 years ago and loved it so when we were back in town it was our first stop for dinner… and 8 years later can I say it’s even better. My husband loves the Rabbit and this time around we tried the kangaroo Appetizer that our waiter, Suggested and it was delicious. Hoping to be back soon and not wait 8 years

    A fabulous evening to celebrate a birthday and friendship. Canoe delivered. Our waitress Stella was kind and courteous- very professional yet friendly. The water glasses were always full and she made our evening lovely. From the minute we sat down until we left it was an amazing dinner. Food was spectacular! Wine list excellent and fair. Will come again next visit to Atlanta.

    My fish was not well done as asked- pretty rare. Asked for a regular salad and asked for tomatoes and wasn’t told I’d be charged $3 for tomatoes. That’s a rip-off. I don’t like surprises on my bill.

    Took my wife here for our Anniversary. Checked in and went to the bar. Sat there for a short period and was taken to our table. The view was excellent and the beginning started off good. We sat and talked enjoyed drinks and ordered our food. The food came out wrong, the waiter apologized and said it would not take long to get it corrected. About another 30 minutes went by and we finally got our food. Had waited over an hour at this point to eat after ordering. The food was great and so were the drinks. My biggest issue was after such a huge mistake for a high end restaurant I was not approached by the manager or offered anything as a "sorry for the mix up". I am not one to expect this, but it does show how much management is involved and how much their customers are appreciated. We paid the $210 bill and tipped the waiter $40 on top of the balance. Just not sure I would return given the other options such as Nicolai's on the roof and the Sun Dial. Those restaurants are on top of everything and make sure your experience is no less than amazing!
