You can't bet it for the ambiance, the view and the service. However, the food was average and very overpriced. Good to try once if you've never been

It is certainly one of the nicest restaurant environments my wife and I had the chance to enjoy; approach, location, reception, bar, dinning rooms and view are superb!!! Service is excellent, even though we were disappointed with the wine recommendations... menu is short and very suggestive, but the food was only good... we expected more, literally: taste and portion sizes...It...

If you want to be treated like a princess for a night with your knight ..this is the place. You will be served by many people. One to open the door, one to take your coat away and I felt like there was one server for every dish! My eyes were as satisfied and delighted as my palate as I... More

We dined at Canlis in June and had a fabulous dinner at the restaurant. The service we received is second to none. The view is beautiful and the meal we had was outstanding. They send you home with a chocolate bar (ours was cherry almond coffee) just to remind you of your excellent evening.

I had been looking forward to eating at the restaurant for some time. Perhaps my expectations were too high, or I am a little jaded from all the fantastic places I have eaten over the years... but this was not the amazing place I had hoped. We had a late reservation, so we opted out of the tasting menu. Still... More

First of all, the view is stunning. You drive up, and there is proper service from start to finish. I mean, no flubbed up sentences, no dropped napkins, nothing. The restrooms are expectedly stylish and immaculate. There is a custom cocktail menu, as well as a vast and interesting wine list... some items will even be a revelation for oenophiles.... More

The food (both taste and preparation) was excellent. The service was even better. Beautiful views of the city as well. Extensive wine list. Would return for a special occasion.

Go for the exceptional service, views and ceasar salad. All food was excellent, actually. Costly but worth it!

I was in a group of 10 diners and while the waitstaff did everything possible to provide the best service, the way the menu is designed really lends itself to smaller parties no more than four. A few of us wanted to try the Chef's Tasting Menu (7 set courses) but the entire table had to order the same (which... More
