Best Patio in Victoria

You can't beat an afternoon on Canoe's waterfront patio. It is big enough that you don't have to wait to hours for a table. Thursday nights are good here with live music and a twenties crowd.

I was really taken aback that I was charged an extra $30 by the restaurant because I made the reservation for 22 and only 18 individuals showed up. We were not stingy - we purchased a LOT of alcohol and a fair bit of food. I was told that hosts had to turn people away due to our large party; if they had asked me if more people were planning on coming by, they could have absolutely taken one of the tables to seat some additional guests if it was that much of a problem. Service was great, food and drinks were great - I just really did not appreciate the additional charge when settling things at the end of the night; some concessions could have absolutely been made earlier in the evening.

Canoe is a funky eatery on the north end of the Inner Harbour in Victoria. The place has a very cool vibe, a great, modern menu (although a little stripped down) and everything I've ever tried is deee-lish! And our server was absolutely fantastic! After dinner, the place starts to fill up for the live band and it becomes even more electric! We will definitely be back!

We set up a party with about 30 people at the Canoe Club to celebrate a friend moving on and the Canoe Club made us all feel at home and treated us very well. All the Food was exceptional and came quickly to the table. We appreciated that for the first part of the party, even though we didn’t fill the upper floor the club seemed to direct people to other areas allowing us to spend come quality time toasting out comrade and close friend without interruption of others and distraction. The next time you have a get together I would / will recommend the Canoe Club for anyone wishing to have a get together that you wish to remember! A big thank you to the staff, servers and management, in making the night one to remember.

Was fantastic, even though the table wasn’t exactly ready yet, the staff were quick and helpful and got us seated as soon as possible. It wasnt their fault the table before us stayed so late, but they were super! Canoe is always a fantastic place and can’t wait for patio season.

We had a wonderful time and were very well-treated by everyone at Canoe! We were a large party and everyone went above and beyond for us. I would definitely recommend renting this space for a large party.

I have visited the Canoe Club on three or four separate occasions and each one has been worse than the one before. This time around for my Thirtieth, I was completely sober and ate a few things off the menu including the crispy kalamari and the canoe burger. Both were awful. The Kalamari was not crispy at all but soggy and really inedible and the burger, well for $24.00 (once you add the mushrooms and bacon) was such a let down. I have vowed never to return to this establishment again. It gets it's high reviews from Tourist visiting Victoria in the summer, off the cruise ships or whatever. They come sit on the patio and boom are satisfied. However if you are a local be prepared for a nice atmosphere, mediocre service and beer and absolutely horrible food.

Although there was no record of our reservation (except my confirmation on my phone) they set up a table for us quickly. Service was good, very knowledgeable about the menu items and the beer. Food was good, nothing spectacular. Was a birthday, so complimentary desert was offered, but we were too full, so, instead, server offered tea or coffee, which was gratefully accepted.

We arrived at 5:15pm, with a large group of approximately 15-16 people. Shortly after the whole restaurant was dimmed so much that we could barely see our food. Our server was not very friendly when told this was a birthday party and was very curt, impatient, and not personable, she kind of ruined the mood of the party. The food was okay my friend found the poutine very soggy with white sauce added, my other friend ordered a falafel dish and it was only three small falafels for a expensive price, my veggie burger tasted okay but wasn't anything special. I did not appreciate that our server didn't tell us that our tip was automatically added to the cheque and I tipped ontop of that because I didn't know.

We went upstairs for my brother's bachelor party. 4 stars for atmosphere because we would have rather been downstairs with everyone else, but they got us in as a group of 15 so cheers to them.

Vegetarians: Find marvelous meatless burgers in Victoria

Good veggie burgers on Victoria’s picturesque waterfront were hard to come by before Canoe Pub introduced their own House Veggie Burger. Combining a Sicilian eggplant relish, goat cheese, fresh aioli and Bibb lettuce, it’s a modern update of the classic burger. Now, on top of the beautiful views and hand-crafted beer, you can get a veggie burger that’s made with the same care and creativity as the rest of Canoe’s menu.
