We visited Canoe for lunch whilst on honeymoon - partly because of the excellent reviews of the food but also for the views - which unfortunately due to bad weather the day we came were non existant! - they had very kindly given us a window seat so we could see out.
The food was devine - we loved everything that we picked. The waiters were also helpful without being intrusive. It was in the main full of folk performing business deals but that didn't bother us! Would highly recommend both for food and ambiance!
Favorite Dish: Everything we ate was really good but i really enjoyed my main which was a pasta dish with chicken broth - made a change from all the red meat we had eaten elsewhere!
On the 54th Floor in the City of Toronto and not a bloody Hamburger insight! What a fantastic change from the normal
Favorite Dish: My wife had Gnocchi with Truffels and I had Scollops & Lobster to start with.
Wife Had Foiegis
I had Bisen
For Desert as we we're full we told the Waiter we would love to try but we're full, so with not charging any more the waiter brought out a plate with a selection from the whole desert menu! We found some space to eat it!
We've eaten at some of the best resturants in the world and to be honest this was the best.
With a bottle of Sancerre the bill came to $210.00 for both of us!
Superb, but very expensive, restaurant on the 54th floor of the Toronto Dominion Bank Tower.
Very nice stylish decor, and fantastic views south and west from the financial district (even the kitchen staff get a view!). Very professional service, and excellent food. You will probably have to book in advance for a Friday night (we tried booking on the Friday morning, but could only get a table for 9pm).
We spent Can$140 each (inc. service), but that did include cocktails, three courses, two half bottles of wine, coffee and digestifs. Andrew had the most expensive main course on the menu:- the caribou, at Can$42.00; Dave's main was the pheasant, at Can$36.00.
The menu is imaginatively arranged, with starters and maains grouped by themes ("classic", fish, seasonal, etc.). There is also a tasting menu available for Can$85 (six courses plus coffee).
The food was totally delicious, and well worth the price - what more can we say!
Favorite Dish: Dave had Fundy scallops with Kobe beef rib, pumpkin and kumquats; Roast Pheasant; and Biscotti with Muscat de Beaumes de Venise (for dipping!).
Andrew had Salmon tartar with Caperberries, Champagne Raisins, and Yukon chips; Nunavut Barren Caribou, with Butternut Squash, Pearl Onions, Pickled Walnuts & Wild Rice; and Apple Pie.
Canoe - it rather pricey, but if you are paying in US Dollars or English Pounds, you might consider it rather reasonable. The restaurant is set on the top floor of one of Toronto's highest office towers, the TD Centre, with a wonderful view on a clear day of the city, harbour, and beyond. Everything on the menu is great, but be forewarned, you will find lots of business people here after work, its that type of place with exceptional food.
We sat at the Chef's table and had a great time chatting with our server and the kitchen staff. They let us taste several things in addition to our order which was a real treat.
