Best outdoor dining in Atlanta period! Incredibe views and food, oh and an awesome riverside bar!
Great place to take a stroll after dinner along the river and through the gardens.
Great meal – I went last night with a group of 10 and I walked away very impressed. Service, food, everything was great. My tuna was excellent and the salad before it was enough to share wtih my girlfriend. The prices are reasonable for this kind of quality. I would go again and recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful Patio Dining – Our evening started and ended well. Service was good and attentiveness was just right. Canoe has four selections of bread, very enjoyable. The crab fritter appetizer was the size of a tennis ball and very loaded with crab. The mussel appetizer simmering in a flavorful coconut sauce was awesome with sour dough bread. My husband liked his scallop entree as much as any fine dining restaurant, but did not care for the sides. I, on the other hand, really liked the sautéed mushroom and squash ravioli sides, more so than the lemon sole entree. Hubby thought the ice cream selection was okay, but I really liked my poached pear with gingerbread and pumpkin ice cream. The dim lighting in the patio made for a very romantic evening, and their courtyard is made for an after dinner stroll with several benches for you to relax and talk after a good meal.
Awful Service – I went to Canoe with my restaurant club which consists of 9 women. We informed the server that we were a restaurant club and we were happy to be there. Our service was horrible. It took us over 45 minutes to get our food. The food was okay. Even someone in our group who had been there before indicated her food had been better the last time. We were not impressed, I was very disappointed, and I would probably not go back for dinner.
ROMANTIC and on the Water – The River Room, in a booth, facing the water, at dusk is the most romantic spot in Atlanta. The food always amazing and the service undisturbing and attentive. An Atlanta classic.
I've had better for le$$ – Food was ok, but a nice setting. Bitchy service staff, over a tip that another customer left. I don't care FEED ME! They make the food to pretty and no taste. Very fatty and heavy food.
Still One of the Best – Canoe still has to be one of the best places to dine in Atlanta. The desserts and homemade ice creams are some of the most creative and daring. Yet, some of my less adventurous friends find foods they love here as well.
Seafood and appetizers are Canoe's strength. But the mandatory "turf" dishes are expertly prepared.
Pricey, but always a favorite of mine for a special occasion.
i've been meaning to write a note about conoe for some time now (it's been several months since my visit). canoe is just spectacular. nice ambience (bit loud at times), gracious service (jennifer--a german gal-ist wunderbar!), and excellent food (gary is terrific...carolina rabbit...mmmm...and of course the ostrich is fantastic; my risotto could have used a little bit of a kick, but otherwise well done all around. extensive wine list is also a plus.
If you feel like having a good evening.. – This place is awsome. They cater to large crowds very well. Very beautiful interrior but if you go you must check out the beautiful gardens and the Hooch flowing not too far away.
Fantastic Dining Experience – I have been a frequent Diner of Canoe since its inception in 1995. I have seen its ups and downs, but overall it is my favorite place still in Atlanta to dine out. In 1998 or so, the restaurant took a turn downhill when some of the key management staff left. I could alsways be greated by name by Rob, Cullen, or Kevin. They were all very professional, the service was impeccable, and the food top notch. I cant believe all the negative reviews here. I have had a bad dish at Canoe as well (few and far between), but the Chefs always made things right if that were the case. Impressive wine list, and a great by the glass selection. Overall, it is one of my favorite places to dine in the country....just wish some of the management that made the place so special for us would return!
Could eat here everyday – The food is fresh, light and delicious... This is the kind of place I could eat at every day and not find rich or over bearing... The staff was great, helpful but not imposing.
