We brought a group of 16 people to this location for dinner on a weeknight - it was a wonderful event! From the moment the car pulls up in the driveway, every detail was cared for - the valets, the hostess, and each of the staff was warm, friendly, and able to answer any question. Stepping inside the building, you... More

The staff was impeccable. Before leaving, the hostess actually was warming the inside my coat by holding the inside of my coat in front of the large fireplace!!! Attention to detail by the staff is unbelievable and well worth paying a bit more for dinner. The waiter we had was soooo wonderful as he helped us through selecting what we... More

I took my girlfriend to Canlis for her birthday and they made it a memorable experience. As soon as we arrived, someone came out to valet our car. We were a bit early for our reservation at 8:15pm, so we were escorted to the bar and ordered a drink until our table was ready. I believe that pretty much every... More

Great service and an excellent view. Food was delicious. Had the pre fixed menu and it was satisfying. I wouldn't say its a huge portion but good for a classy tasting style meal.

We were here for a late dinner and had truly spectacular meals. The four-course prix fixe menu is plenty of food, prepared with imagination and the freshes ingredients. The presentation is beautiful and the service is truly unsurpassed. My wife said at the end of the meal: "I now have a new favorite restaurant." I had been here several times... More

Just happened to find Canlis while in Seattle for a few days. The best restaurant I've ever been to bar none! I've eaten in loads of restaurants all over the world and have to say Canlis does it better, the setting the food, service and wine is all fantastic. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

I have been here a few times over the years and the food and service has always impressed me. Don't go as often due to the escalating prices.

Four of us went to dinner at Canlis 12-21-2016 . Two of us ordered the Shrimp as it was supposed to be very fresh. We could not believe the serving when it was brought to the table. Eight to ten shrimp on a huge plate with four pieces of Broccoli! Then to top that off the shrimp were marinated in... More
