A group of four friends who had been birdwatching in the area had dinner here. We did not have reservations on a Friday evening and were told the wait time would be 20 minutes.

This is my 2nd time going to Blue Canoe. The 1st time was with the whole family and 2nd time with my daughter only. The food was good as well as the server. The atmosphere in the restaurant was good as well.

This is a busy restaurant - there was a line up on the Friday night we went. The raw oyster and the calamari starters were good without being great.

This is a very popular restaurant with an amazing patio. Prices are on the higher side but you get what you pay for. The new chef Daryle Nagata has worked all over the world and has won Top Chef Canada. Great food and drink with an amazing view from the patio.

I enjoyed a perfectly cooked Halibut, with fresh and well seasoned vegetables.

Excellent food, if you expect a coffee you will ve dissapointed.

Great spot on the river especially when the sun is out. Even better watching the sun go down from the deck. Good selection of beers, wines and seafood. I'm not the best when it comes to oysters but my wife liked the selection. Staff helpful and very, very friendly
