“If you’re looking for an escape from the urban grind, this long-running spot on the banks of the Chattahoochee provides a beautiful view and amazing atmosphere. It’s not all about aesthetics, though the creatively elegant presentations of fabulous Southern seasonal fare is as good looking as the surroundings.”
-Zagat, (May 2015)

“The location, right on the Chattahoochee River, immediately sets the scene for an intimate evening, and you are welcome to walk along the river before or after dinner. You will feel as though you have had an escape from your daily lives, and the wine choices are guaranteed to provide just the right accent to your meal. The menu has a pleasing array of choices, truly something for everyone.”
-Keely Herrick, CBS Atlanta (February 2015)

“Situated right on the bank of the Chattahoochee River, this restaurant is, in one word, stunning.”
-Krista Miller, Atlanta Eats (November 2014)

-John Kessler, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (October 2014)

-JEZEBEL (July 2014)

“Canoe is one of the city’s most bucolic settings for lunch or dinner. Nestled along the Chattahoochee River, this destination dishes up the perfect setting along with award-winning cuisine and intelligent drink offerings.”
-Katie Kelly Bell, USA Today (March 2014)

“My wife and I, our favorite nice night out is at Canoe.”

“Word comes from Buckhead’s Canoe that Matt Basford has taken over as its executive chef. Basford, a native of Australia, began his tenure at Canoe in 2005 as a sous chef. Expect him to keep Canoe on the same course, offering the accessible New American cooking that makes it a popular neighborhood haunt.”
-Bill Addison, Covered Dish (October 2013)

“It’s always a pleasure to enjoy its [Canoe] charms, again and again, which is the mark of a truly great restaurant.”
– Jennifer Bradley Franklin, Southern Seasons (June-July 2013)

“For those more interested in relaxing by the waters of the Chattahoochee River, you simply can’t beat the setting at Canoe restaurant. The idealic spot on the banks of the river includes outdoor seating in the colorful, lush garden, and in late spring the restaurant hosts its Songs of the South live music series outside on Wednesday nights.”
– Sarah Gleim, Startle (May 2013)

“Metro Atlanta restaurants receiving four diamonds: Aria, Atlanta Grill, Bacchanalia, BLT Steak, Canoe.”
– Leon Stafford, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (February 2013)

“Iron, exposed brick, and wood come together to form Canoe’s “casually elegant” decor. The riverside restaurant in Vinings isn’t just known for its interior, however— the outdoor seating and river bar provide a scenic view of the Chattahoochee.”
– Sonia Chopra, Eater (September 2012)

“Canoe is a restaurant that matters. The color scheme is richer, the lighting dimmer, the wood partitions darker. It feels more elegant — more like a special night out, less like a scene.”
– John Kessler, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
