We requested sitting with a view and was not disappointed at all. Service was impeccable. Degustation menu features local Canadian story as background. Wine pairing is a must try - absolutely a fantastic dining experience.

What a pleasant surprise to eat at a much hyped restaurant that deserves it's reputation. This was our first visit and the view set the tone for the evening. Beautiful and having arrived just before dusk we were able to enjoy the transition to night. My wife and I chose the same courses by coincidence and our thoughts were similar.... More

Canoe was simply the best, no exception, the best. the food was amazing, the views from the floor to ceiling windows absolutely stunning, as far as the eye could see. The staff were superb, simply couldn't do enough for you but without being over attentive. Our waiter from Glasgow was brilliant, really helpful and just a pleasure to meet. The... More

Went in for a quick lunch, the salad is fantastic! The service at the bar was not that of a 5-star restaurant, but still good. Lunch selection limited, hard to eat here if trying to count calories.

I have been to Canoe perhaps 100 times. This week I requested a mixed green salad to start....something not on their lunch menu. I don't usually expect much with a green salad...l mean, it's a salad! But wow....this one was simply amazing...with the best dressing I have ever had. Will request this again....I cannot say enough about it. Ask for... More

Started with some preseco at the bar followed by a delicious appetizer, both mushroom soup and beetroot salad. My oven roasted halibut was wonderful just lacking a little flavour without the sauce, the strip-loin with blue cheese was flavourful. Washed down with a beautiful 2008 Barolo reserva.

Whenever my wife and I are going to Toronto, we immediately book a table for lunch at the bar at Canoe. The views are spectacular, Jeff is special, and the food and wine consistently excellent. We leave ourselves in Jeff's hands and never regret it. Recently, we were fortunate to be there during Winterlicious and benefitted from the return of... More

Valentines day dinner with the Mrs. The tasting menu looked good but the execution was somewhat lacking. The flavors didn't excite as much as you might expect. The lobster salad was tasty and refreshing but the bison tartare was bland. The sirloin main was great, but the venison and rabbit was plain. Dessert was ok at best. The service was... More

We haven't dined at Canoe in 3 years and felt we were overdue for a revisit, to see if one of Toronto's "old guard", the flagship of the Oliver-Bonacini empire, is still shining in this new era of dining. No surprise, they did not disappoint, and are not resting on previous laurels, they have kept up and will be around... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
