Tucked Away, Not Far Away
Tucked away along the peaceful banks of the Chattahoochee River, yet conveniently located in the Atlanta community of Vinings lies one of the country’s most acclaimed restaurants. Balanced by both culinary expertise and natural aesthetics, Canoe offers a rich, flavorful experience for all your senses. One that has garnered numerous accolades, like being inducted into Nation’s Restaurant News 2005 Fine Dining Hall of Fame.Here, the river rolls past a tranquil waterfront that is enhanced by a natural, yet manicured landscape – offering colorful gardens, crisp white special-event tents and meandering walkways that are the perfect spot for a before or after-dinner stroll.
