I took my girlfriend here for her birthday after researching the fanciest restaurant in Seattle (I'm from out of town). Canlis definitely did not disappoint. The setting was very nice, the service was excellent and the food was exquisite. The servers were chattier than I'm used to (seems to be an American thing) but they were very professional and accommodating of my girlfriend's multiple food allergies. Her dessert plate even had a small, thin candle with "happy birthday" written in chocolate sauce. Very classy. It's a very pricy place - I think was at least 3x more than I've ever spent on a single meal - but truly worth every penny. Not somewhere I'd go for other than a very special occasion, but when you want to impress it definitely does the job. Thanks for helping me plan a great evening.
