This was absolutely one of our top top dining experiences, and we have been to some outstanding restaurants. We went with the seven course tasting menu with the classic wine pairings option. Our server was going to show us the tasting menu before commencing, but we declined, as to allow the chef to work his magic, well, to us, that's... More

This was not our first time at Canlis but it was an exceptional experience. They seem to have improved on what was already a great experience. The service was terrific with a consistent attention to detail demonstrated by all of the staff that served us (hostess, servers and support staff). They even ironed our tablecloth when clearing the entree in... More

The Service is outstanding and and every thing we ate was exquisitely delightful. We had a starter and two Wagyu Filet Mignon and let me tell you this...The... More

This is the top restaurant in Seattle and if you dine here you will understand why. From the phenomenal service to the menu that changes everyday. You are not just having dinner at Canlis you are having an experience. I highly recommend you enjoy Canlis at least once.

Canlis is a sophisticated blend of old and new Seattle. Make reservations and be prepared for a unique dining experience. The menu is fixed-priced and the staff attend to every detail. Service, service, service with food that is not only artistically presented but delicious. They make sure every guest has a wonderful evening.

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.
