I first went to Canoe in 2000. I went with someone who is now an ex. He introduced me to Canoe and it's something I continue to thank him for. Our children were little back then, but over the years it has become a tradition in our family to visit Canoe for special occasions, or just because, and here's why: \n\n The service is real; not just staff who don't care pretending that they do. No, at Canoe, you will be treated like you're the most important guest that night and if you're not, the management will do things like bring you the entire dessert menu as an apology for a late seating or disliked entree. \nI grew up with a dad who ran restaurants for a living, so i know a little about food and service and I can tell you, Canoe is a shining star in a constellation of Atlanta eateries. First of all, the food is just magnificent. Though the menu changes, you never have to fear that your favorite is no longer on the menu, you'll be sure to find a new favorite right away. The service is outstanding: They call you by your name, the staff is trained in how to serve, so they attend to your every need, they know how to suggest food, they pay attention to your table and they make an expensive meal feel like it should: special, delicious, memorable and worth the money you're about to lay down for it.\nI have been to other restaurants that boast a similar price tag, but I have never found one in this town that is actually worth the money except for Canoe. It has become our go-to restaurant for special occasions because we're never disappointed. In fact, if we all had to list our favorite meals of all time, our family would recount a list that's about 90% Canoe entrees or desserts. \nMy kids are older now, they're bona fide teenagers with palates of their own and time and again, they request Canoe for our special occasions. In fact, we're going there tonight to celebrate their recent successes in school. How lucky are we that we know already that tonight is going to be one of those warm, happy memories that brings smiles to our faces for years to come because our chosen restaurant is so consistently excellent? (pretty darned lucky, I'd say.)

I've been to Canoe several times and I've always had pleasant experiences. So when I needed to hold an event there I thought it would be perfect. There were about 16 people at this event and the server was amazing. She was helpful and attentive and I cannot say enough good things about her. The food was also great. HOWEVER, planning the event was not pleasant. Every time I called, the head of event planning told me she had to many calls to remember who I was. And she was never very pleasant to talk to. Her assistant was very nice I must say. After the event, I never heard a word...no 'thank you'...or 'how was it'...nothing. I don't think I would go back for an event at this point. My closest friends are sales managers at some of the nicest restaurants in Atlanta and they all concur that the customer service in the planning area was not stellar.

Love everything about Canoe-the way they remodeled the space after it was flooded-the wine list is great and the food never fails to impress. Love the coconut ice cream here and the fact that the chef was able to get it for me even when it wasn't on the menu. Brunch here is one of the best in town!!!

I've been here once with my friend and we had a wonderful experience. It has a really cool atmosphere that set the right vibes. We were served with wonderful good tasting food and the wait staff was so nice. We were really satisfied during that first visit and are already planning to go back next week.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 3rd Anniversary at Canoe. It was one of the most wonderful dining experiences we had. The wait staff were so friendly and accomodating. The food we ordered were truly exceptional. We certainly love the setting and the environment. This place is truly incomparable and we will definitely go back.

My wife and I finally visited Canoe after meaning to for months. The view of the Chattahoochee was not disappointing. While not as personal as Ray's on the River, the seating nearly right above the river is very nice. \n\nThe service was pretty good. Our hostess was polite and the waitress was more than happy to offer suggestions. We particularly enjoyed the arugula salad, but the barbecued pheasant was burned as though it had been cooked by a boy scout on a bonfire. The parts that were not burned were good, but unfortunately, that was only about 40% of the bird.\n\nI ordered the rabbit, which was decent. The preparation left it tender, although it lacked fresh flavor and tasted well over-spiced.. This, however, was far superior to my wife's dish. She ordered the steak and fries. The aroma of the dish was a bit repulsive (truffle oil was liberally applied to the fries), but we have eaten such dishes before. But as she ate, the aroma became too strong. Even I was not hungry after eating half my dish - not because I was full, but because the unappetizing smell of her french fries. We were unable to stomach dessert.\n\nOverall, the dining experience was decent, but certainly not worth the cost. We have eaten at several nearby restaurants offering similar fare, and have found them to be a far better value.

The view and atmoshpere are good. great date night.\nFor the price, food should be better\n\nThe service has an attitude and if it were not for the wines, it would be 3 star.\n\nOverall the food was fresh, well presented, but lacked that special kick to make me want to go back again for that money.There are better places for less money around

My family and I have dined at this restaurant many times. Our latest outing was on Easter. We sat outside on their patio which was just beautiful. Their menu has changed somewhat so my sister and I didn;t care for what we ordered. Our waitress wasn't all that great. not as friendly as we usually get. food is pricey. but sometimes its workth it. for us, we think they changed chefs because the last couple of times that we've been there it hasn't been all that great. I will say that most of the staff there are very friendly and the atmosphere is just beautiful inside and out.

I took my fiance to Canoe last night for his birthday dinner. The staff was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We loved the atmosphere- elegant, but with a rustic, upscale lodge feel. The wine was excellent and the food exceptional- the best I've had in years. Will definitely be back soon!

Great food and wine in a fantastic location. The service was excellent as well. Prices are a bit steep but the value is there. Recommended for special occasions.

I had dinner at Canoe with 4 friends last night and it was a divine experience! We were greeted by a charmant hostess who led us to the table they had set for us outiside overlooking the chattahoochie river. Istart...absolument delishious! Our waitress was very knowledge about the food and wine and had the perfect temprament (not overzealous yet confident and likeable). I had the lamb ribs with apricot sauce to start...absolument delicious! I had the veal as my main course and it is the best veal I have had to date: utterly oozing with flavour and cooked to perfection! I finsihed off the evening with a tangerine icecream atop a slice of blueberry cake and that did not dissapoint either. I'm quite hard to please but Canoe lived up to the hype! I cannot wait to return to Canoe for brunch!

This summer I tried Canoe for my boyfriends birthday and it was amazing!!! We sat outside right near the river. The entire staff was fabulous from the hostess to our waiter. Our waiter was exceptionally knowledgable of the menu and very helpful he greeted us by name and had already been informed it was my boyfriend's birthday and wished him happy birthday. It was GREAT food and GREAT service. On top of everything else it was one of the most romantic places we have ever been! I HIGHLY recommend Canoe to anyone and I will absolulety be back in the future.

Canoe is a fantastic spot in the heart of Vinings and right on the Chattahoochee River. This is the place for date night on the North side of Atlanta. The meals are wonderfully prepared and the ambiance might even be better. Don't go if you're prone to sticker shock as this will not be the cheapest meal you have ever had. It might be one of the best and you're going to pay for it!

We went here a few weekends ago for my best friend's 30th birthday dinner & were all impressed. When we initially looked over the menu, we were surprised that the main dishes were so unusual (rabbit, pheasant, etc.), but everything ended up being really tasty! The waiters were all fabulous, too! Unlike many of the other nice restaurants around town, they were not only attentive,helpful & knowledgeable--they had tons of personality & were each very humorous! They made our night special by paying attention to details--for instance, since my best friend had been drinking martiniis while we were waiting on the rest of our party to arrive, they brought her a chocholate martinni at the end of the night (on top of a plate that had ""Happy 30th"" written in chocolate). While this seems like a small detail, it made the experience more individualized than if the staff had simplty brought the traditional piece of cake!

Overall, it was a good dining experience. My husband and I brought his visiting father here as a farewell dinner. We had 7:15 reservations but didn't get seated until about twenty minutes later. The food had some hits and misses. For starters, they bring by this massive basket with delicious bread, but give you one slice each and never offered anymore in the twenty minutes waiting for our food. For appetizers, the mussels were very good; however, the smoked salmon which was highly recommended by our waiter was a little salty and hard to swallow. Our main courses were very good. We tried the scallops, rabbit, and skate wing which was their special that night and would say was probably my favorite of the three. The rabbit was extremely tender and tasted very much like chicken. Definitely worth a visit especially for the ambience.

We dined with Canoe on Sunday, November 8, 2008, while in Atlanta for a business convention. We picked Canoe based on strong reviews at this site and on Zagat. The cab ride from downtown was $25 each way, but the time and expense were well worth it. Canoe is a gem. We started with the squash soup. I had the Grilled Berkshire Pork Tenderloin entree which was as moist and as tender as any pork tenderloin I have ate. My wife had the pheasant. Both were excellent. Our server was a star, knowledgeable [she could explain the ingredients, seasoning level, and preparation method of every disk we considered], attentive, and personable. Some waiters and waitresses with this degree of knowledge can be snooty or elitist with a ""Miami"" attitude, but not at Canoe... where the service was top-notch without ego or stuffiness. \r\n\r\nIn my opinion Canoe is a solid value. Most entrees are in the $22 to $27 range for a full sized portion with side dishes. Canoe's wine list is deep, and offers numerous by the galss choices including two Rieslings and a Gewurztraminer. When making the reservation, Canoe asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and I advised it was our fifth anniversary. When our desert arrived (warm apple cake with buttermilk sorbet) ""Happy Anniversary"" was written on the plate. Canoe even called us a Marietta cab for the ride back to downtown Atlanta. From decor to desert Canoe is well worth the trip.\r\n

We went to Canoe to celebrate our anniversary last night. It was a wonderful experience - probably the most relaxing dinner I've had at an ""upscale"" restaurant. We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation & had a short wait at the bar, then were escorted to a table on the patio. The gardens were lovely and our server (June) was just right, not obtrusive, but always available when needed. We started out with the beet salad - delicious and I'm not a beet lover! I ordered the rabbit and my husband got the halibut. I must say that the rabbit was superior, very tender, slow roasted and tasty. I didn't care for the ravioli that came with it, the pasta was okay but ovewhelmed by the applewood smoked bacon in the filling.. My husband's fish was well cooked, if a little underseasoned, but the side of giant couscous with wild mushrooms and sugar snap peas was delicious. We finished with a housemade raspberry/orange sorbet with dark chocolate cookies. Perfect! June even boxed up extra cookies for us to take home to our daughter. The whole experience was delightful and we will definitely be back. One warning - be aware that Lovett School is right across the river and may be having a football game on Friday nights! It was getting started as we finished up, but didn't ruin our mood. If you enjoy dining on the patio, you might want to make reservations for other nights during football season!

I took my mom here for her 60th birthday. The Chattahoochee River as a backdrop is the only thing I found redeeming. The scones are worth a try. Otherwise, food is mediocre. The service is snooty.

This is a nice place to go if you want good (but expensive) food and fancy atmosphere. It's very loud and there are a huge number of business people there on weeknights.

Canoe is a great place for a nice romantic evening out. They have great food, that is on the pricier side. The dress is dressy/casual. It has a very beautiful setting that is right on the river. This is a long time Atlanta favorite that gets overshadowed by Atlanta's newer restaurants but it is always consistent.

The food and service at Canoe is incredible! The restaurant atmosphere is more high class with valet parking (although it seems a little silly with how small the parking lot is), unique menu items, fancy presentation, wonderful service, etc. It's rather expensive (our bill was about $100 for 2 people) but it's a wonderful experience if you're going out to eat for a special occasion. It's also very fun if you want to go somewhere fancy where you can dress up. The food is incredible but keep in mind that portions tend to be smaller at nicer restaurants than at your average American restaurant. We thought the portions were the perfect size but if you enjoy the huge portions of most mid-class restaurants in this area, this may not be the right choice. Also the river view is breathtaking! I highly recommend eating here for an incredible experience!

Canoe is a very elegant restaurant tucked away in the midst of a family community. The mystery behind its location immediately sets the restaurant apart. Once you enter you are greated by friendly and professional hostesses. Once you are seated, the table is set up so that you can put your ettiquette to work. The food is fine cuisine and the wine is aged to perfection! I absolutely love going on dates here and can't to go again.

From the moment I pulled up in the parking lot of Canoe I knew it would be an exceptional experience. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. Some upscale restaurants are stuffy and stiff but that is definitely not the case with Canoe. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. The decor was warm and it was definitely a romantic setting. I told the waiter qualities I enjoyed in wine and he recommended a wine that was exceptional. The food was the best food I have ever eaten in my life and that says a lot coming from a ""foodie"". I have eaten at upscale eateries across the country and they pale in comparison to Canoe. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Canoe for any event or just a night out!

From the moment I pulled up in the parking lot of Canoe I knew it would be an exceptional experience. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. Some upscale restaurants are stuffy and stiff but that is definitely not the case with Canoe. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. The decor was warm and it was definitely a romantic setting.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Little pricey

i am 19 and a constant customer of canoe. i recommend sitting at the bar for the best service, the tenders are always freindly and full of energy, and they will do their best to make your meal enjoyable. great scenery only adds to wonderful and inventive dishes. sitting at a table is just not as enjoyable as the bar and the winelist is always good. i recommend this if you have some time to spare food does sometimes take a little while to appear but it is always worth it i will continue to return often and can only recomment that you make this your stop for food.,

I heard such good things about this place that, when I arrived, I was surprised to see rabbit on the menu. (May have been a special). To be honest, I never had rabbit before, so I said ""What the heck, why not!"" \r\n\r\nWell, Canoe can make even RABBIT taste fantastic! (Not to mention the osterich appetizer)\r\n\r\nI will go back again and again. The food and service is top notch!

Canoe has a very interesting and comfortable atmosphere. They are located on the Chattahoochie River across from The Lovett School. The best time to go is early so you can dine outside (weather permitting) and have the view of the river. Just the house breads are to die for. Appetizers are incredible, and the main entrees are superb. It's definitely worth the trip.

I went to a wedding there this weekend. It was perfect. \r\n\r\nService was outstanding, food was good and hot (hard to do at a large function), bartenders were terrific.\r\n\r\nThe weather could not have been more beautiful! The ambience, tent, and setting made you feel like you were at a 5 star restaurant....\r\n\r\nThe experiance was Top Notch...felt warm and friendly, but classy too!

Great location, great outdoor dining, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, delicious food, well priced. What more can I say? Went last night and was totally surprised. The appetizers, a red and yellow beet over goat cheese dish and the pea ravioli were fabulous. Main course was braised shortrib. Masterful. Lamb ditto on the masterful. It's just the kind of cooking we've been looking for. This is a chef who has mastered it all. And then there was the service.....ask for Victoria although there was not one person in the place who wasn't very amiable and helpful. Now let's talk price. Without the fabulous bottle of ""Turley"" Zin and the before dinner drinks one could have the meal I described for a little over $100. People, that's a steal considering the quality and taste. Portion size also excellent. This is the place to take the out of town friends or to just give yourself a nice treat. Loved it....we'll be back!

We went there for our anniversary dinner. Food was tastety and a portion was just right. They had a special soup it could be called clubshell soup and it was so good. Their servers were a little too young for this restaurant.

I really enjoyed this restaurant from the moment I walked in. The hostesses were friendly, and our waiter especially so. The daily additions to the menu were well described, and our other questions were well handled and humorously when appropriate. My wife had an excellent tuna dish that was lightly cooked (Sushi Grade Level One) and I had a wonderful pheasant entree on top of sweet potatoe puree and a side of spinach, also with special croquets that had the darker meat inside. Many types of bread available that were delicious and offered often! Portions were just right. A fine dining experience with valet parking that was quick and smiling, too!

We visited Canoe this week for our second anniversary celebration and it was a great experience! We were able to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our reservations were for 8:30, but I would suggest an 8:00 reservation in order to enjoy the view a little longer. The service was great and the food exceeded our expectations. I will agree with previous reviews in saying the wine list was a little pricey. My husband made the initial reservation and was asked if we were celebrating anything in particular, upon arriving nothing was mentioned of our anniversary, but when our entrees were finished our waiter brought us a beautiful dessert ""on the house"" with ""Happy Anniversary"" written in chocolate on the plate. That was just the icing on the cake for this restaurant. Definitely a repeat dinner spot if you're looking for a romantic evening!

This place is great! The food is wonderful, our service was wonderful, and the setting is so romantic. I was concerned when we pulled up and the restaurant is in what looks almost like a strip mall. Well, once inside you would never know it. Also you should definitely walk around outside with a cocktail after dinner, the landscaping and lighting are such that couples can sit and enjoy a quiet conversation. \r\nI think that most of the negative comments are from people that do not frequent restaurants of this ilk. This is known as one of those ""special occasion"" places, where you get people whose normal idea of eating out is some chain. My husband and I found the wine list and food prices to be very reasonable. And we didn't need a ""French dictionary"" to understand the menu. \r\nWe will definitely add this place into our rotation. It is perfect for a romantic evening out.

Thanks Canoe for a great family dining experience in a special and warm setting. I recommend this restaurant for anyone who desires well-prepared food, professional and attentive service, and an atmosphere that offers ""something different."" While our reservations were for 9:30 p.m. on a Monday evening, we were early. To our relief, the staff welcomed us enthusiastically and they were ready for us. My wife, son, daughter, and I each ordered a different appetizer. The African Squash Soup is my favorite, as I knew to order it from an earlier lunch I ate here with friends a few months ago. My wife and son ordered New York Strip Steaks, my daughter ordered the Lamb Shank, and I chose the Carolina Rabbit. Each entree was well-prepared, delicious, and appealing in its presentation. We ordered drinks from the bar and also enjoyed our desserts. The Dining Room Manager visited our table, greeted us, and made us feel welcome. Our waiter was pleasant, attentive, and polite. We were probably the last patrons to leave that night, but no one rushed us and the valet parking attendant did not complain when we realized he was waiting for us before he could leave. Having read a couple of the negative reviews before booking this reservation, I still chose to do so because as I shared earlier, I have eaten one other meal here and knew Canoe to be a restaurant of high calibre and its staff to be concerned and helpful. Before writing this, I just booked another reservation for my whole family for a combined family celebration of Mother's Day and my birthday. I look forward to another great experience. Atlanta has many fine restaurants, and while I commend each of them, this is the one restaurant I want to reserve for that ""special occasion"" with my family that goes above and beyond what one would expect. The staff's attitude is not one of condescension, but concern for professional and courteous service. Thank you Canoe for a great meal and dining experience!

My husband and I were looking for somewhere new for a celebration date-night. The food was wonderful. We started with the mussels, which was well worth every penny. There was more than plenty and they were very flavorful. I had the Scallops and my husband has the Halibut special We both enjoyed them very much. The only thing we had issue with was the wine list. It was very pricey, and the cheapest glass of wine available was around $15. There were not many wines that offered a glass at all. We opted not to have wine with our meal. It would be nice if there was a house wine offered that was less than $10 a glass.

My first experience with Canoe was in the spring of 2002 when taking a then-new girlfriend to dinner. The service was outstanding even though it was a busy Saturday night. Somehow the chef even gave us a sample of some dessert on the house. We were exremely impressed. That girlfriend is now my wife and we've been going to Canoe every few months for a romantic dinner for two since. The menu always changes, and we have never had a disappointing plate. We have had some service that was less than pristine, but when you go as often as we do, it's bound to happen. Whoever wrote the negative review from January is either a disgruntled former employee or had a very bad day overall.

Well I've read a few of the negative reviews about Canoe, and I'm shocked because I had a terrific experience! I loved my food, had great service, and the atmosphere there is awesome! I would highly recommend this restaurant! It's very upscale and has a plesantly relaxing atmosphere. I think this place is also great for a romatic dinner night out.

I recently visited this restaurant with a group of seven close friends while at a medical Convention in the city. Although the negative comments regarding the staff as well as the actual cuisine at this restaurant-if you can call it that-greatly outweigh its positive attributes, I was hopeful that maybe the scenery would be enough to make this a memorable evening. The wait staff members seemed flustered all evening (our table was presented with the wrong dinner twice!-after the second correction, we agreed to try what was presented to us since requesting to speak with the manager never produced a manager!). Four of the dishes were cold and none tasted anywhere near what would be considered mediocre. After becoming frustrated with the lack of service and AWFUL food, we requested the check so that we could dine elsewhere. At the top of the stairs leading out, the valet seemed extremely bothered that we asked to retreive our vehicles-we discovered why when one of our members discovered a huge dent in the front passenger bumper of her new S-class M! The valet admitted to hearing a bump but denied any wrong doing as did the restaurant-luckily my friend is covered under a wonderful inurance agency who actually commented that (friend's name) happened to be the second phone call that evening from this location at Canoe! Who comes to a self-proclaimed ""fine dining"" establishment and experiences such! At the end of the evening, we left with empty tummies, a $8000 vehicle repair, and eventually a tab from another resturant (which was a short drive away into Bhead and was well worth it-Check out FORBES list on citysearch!) Nothing could drag me back to this restaurant. Horribly mannered valet and wait staff, untouchable and unconcerend management, worst dining experience in any city! Find another restaurant witht a great view-there are many in Georgia!

My reveiw is coming from someone who has eaten at Canoe with friends, had countless business dinners in the wine room, and had a bat-mitzvah for 75 people out in a tent in Canoe's lovely garden. In all the times that I've visited Canoe each and every employee has showed nothing but the utmost professionalism. From the hosts at the front door to the gentlemen that deliver bread to the table everyone makes you feel so welcomed and cared for. When it came time to hold an event, Canoe was the only place that came to mind because of the wonderful past experiences that I have had. The special events manager, Laurie is probably one of the best planners that I have ever had the pleasure of working with in the country. Granted like most other professionals, to meet with her I had to make appointments (which she was extremely flexible at doing). During the events, Laurie and her staff did everything under the sun to make sure that my guests and I had the best time and showed us that my group and my event was the most important thing to them. Even with the hustle and bustle of a busy night in the dining room the Canoe staff did not miss a beat!! I can and will only sing Canoe's praises and encourage people, when given the opportunity, to go to Canoe whether for a business dinner, a special event, or just a wonderful dinner for two. This is a place in Atlanta that does it right from start to finish.

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my wifes birthday. When we first arrived the lady at the counter asked for our names and immediately wished her a happy birthday. We had reservations and we were seated right away. Another gentleman we came across wished her a happy birthday as well, and so did the waitress. A small detail but it was impressive none the less. It was romantic and you also have the option to eat outside. The service was first class and so was the food and wine. I am a big seafood fan and the salmon that I had was probably the best that I have ever tasted. It also includes valet service. I highly recommend this place for any special occasions.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Canoe. It was our first visit, and we were pleasantly surprised. We knew that we wanted a romantic setting and usually places with pricey food are not always the best. Canoe surpassed our expectations. We made reservations, were promptly seated, service was excellent, wine was great, entrees had so much flavor. The decor was exactly what we were looking for - romantic and dark. I highly recommend Canoe for anyone celebrating a special occasion!

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.
