Jump Cafe & Bar ★★★

Price: $30+

I decided to go to this restaurant on one of my birthdays because it is also owned by Oliver & Bonacini, who owns Canoe. I am a huge fan of Canoe and thought to try out Jump as something new. However, despite the great staff and service at Jump, I sadly found the food to be a bit lacking in taste. Perhaps it was an off day but I was somewhat disappointed when comparing them to Canoe. I found my main to be okay and I did like the desserts sample platter and champagne the server recommended. Just wasn’t “great”

The restaurant is nice enough, good for a nice dinner with family and friends or co-workers.

Canoe Restaurant & Bar ★★★★★

Price: Over $50+

I have to say the best restaurant I have been to so far is Canoe and it continually has been so for the past few years. Canoe has great service, friendly staff and “foodie goodness” food. Haha. It is a place where you can pick anything off the menu, no matter what foreign names they use and still know the food will be good. With an exception to the watermelon soup, I am not a fan of that at all.

I highly recommend it because the restaurant itself is very nice and provides a scenic view of the C.N. Tower and lake. It is a good place for dates, lunches/dinners with your boss or coworkers. To get the maximum experience, I suggest when making reservations to ask for a table next to the window, preferably facing either the C.N. Tower or lake. Optimum times to eat should be in the afternoon/evening, during the sunset.
