Adam and I went to Canoe for Valentine’s Day. It’s located on the 54th floor of the TD Bank Tower, and the views are absolutely gorgeous. When you book a reservation, be sure to ask for a window seat!

The lighting wasn’t very good so I didn’t manage to get any good photos of the food. There was tartare, and it was full of jalapeños and spiciness and it was too much for me. The lobster gnocchi was my absolute favourite – it literally melted in our mouthes. Although we asked for medium rare, the wagyu steak was a little overcooked.
The mulled apple cider was delicious. I bit on the (extremely hard) bark because I thought it was a cinnamon stick and Adam thought we were supposed to throw the little nuts into our ciders (they were glued to the plate)… We’re noobs when it comes to fine dining.
Based on how expensive Canoe is and how slightly above average the food tastes, it’s really just worth coming here for the view. Perhaps I’ll try it on a different day where they have their regular menu!
