seasonal, contemporary, canadian

Paying tribute to the people, land, and culture of Canada’s distinct provinces, Canoe highlights our nation’s flavours and ingredients through seasonal tasting menus and à la carte dishes.

The wine list is extensive yet well-curated, featuring both Canadian winemakers and international vineyards. Our hand-crafted cocktails are rooted in classic flavours with a uniquely Canadian twist.

Note: During Summerlicious (July 7-23), we will be offering a slightly reduced à la carte menu and our tasting menu will not be available.
