Restaurant Review - Canoe ( Atlanta, GA)

If you are looking for a special place to celebrate with family or have a cozy date or perhaps meet friends for appetizers over drinks, head down to Canoe. This little gem is located right on the Chattahoochee River in a serene and breathtaking landscape. The food here is without doubt, a gastronomical delight. Service is impeccable and the ambiance is worthy of a restaurant that has won numerous prestigious national awards.
Menu is seasonal and the talented chef Carvel creates masterpieces using vegetables and herbs from the restaurant's garden or sources fresh produce from local farmers. Although the menu has more options for the carnivores, there are some good dishes for the vegetarians. Best, when you make reservations, request that the chef makes some thing vegetarian for you. I am sure they will create something phenomenal, just for you.

Word of caution: The amazing selection of flat breads, walnut cranberry bread, or the olive bread is VERY addictive. Pace yourself. You don't want to miss out on the desserts.
(Note to Myself-click pictures for the blog before you dig in. I promise to update this post with some food pictures soon.)

Must Try:
1) Even if you are not a salad kinda person , like me, get the Marinated Golden and Red Beet Salad with Whipped Vermont Goat’s Cheese, Candied Walnuts and Basil Oil. This will take you to cloud nine. One of the best tasting and superbly created salad ever!
2) If you want to impress your date go for the Canoe’s House Smoked Salmon with a Crispy Potato Cake and Vermont Goat’s Cheese. This appetizer makes you go...ahhhhh

3) The entrees keep changing with the seasons but are always very good. You cannot go wrong with anything that you choose at Canoe.

4) For the Winos, they have a superb selection of wines.

5) Being a foodie and dining with fellow foodies, I have tried all their desserts choices. Now, how many times can you say that! Butter pop ice cream -amazing, blueberry semi fredo -amazing, Pana Cotta with raspberries -amazing, Crème Brûlée - amazing.

Price: Splurge worthy
Dress Code: Business Casual
