Restaurant Review: Canoe - Toronto

So, another thing I love to do while traveling is fine dining. I love to dress up and go to fancy restaurants and try new things.

I figured I would review an awesome restaurant that I went to on my last trip to Toronto for New Years.

The  restaurant is: Canoe

This restaurant is located on the one of the top levels of the TD building in downtown Toronto. The view is absolutely breathtaking. We were placed right by the window, overlooking the water. Our coats were taken and our seats were pulled out for us. After going to the bathroom, our waiter even folded my napkin back up, and placed it on the table. They really treat you like a king.

The food was fantastic and the portions were just right. Our desert, a Canadian favorite: Buttertart, was mouthwatering. The whole ambiance was amazing. If you are looking for great, decently priced food with an amazing view, this is the place to go. I have also been to 360, the restaurant atop the CN tower. 360 was great, but this place was even better.


Food: 10/10

Ambiance: 10/10

Service: 9/10

Cost: $$$

($=cheap, $$= intermediate, $$$= expensive, $$$$ = very expensive)


Overall: 9.5/10
