seasonal, contemporary, canadian

Please note: In compliance with provincial legislation, we will be temporarily closed for indoor dining as of Oct 10.

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.

 

Large parties: Please note that for parties of 10 or more, we offer a slightly reduced à la carte menu. Our tasting menu is also available with the participation of the entire table.
