Landmark fine-dining destination (since 1950s) offering Pacific NW fare in a midcentury-modern home.- Google
"Their truffle fries and creme brûlée are to die for."
"Amazing view, delicious food, one in a million experience."

My wife and I have been to Canlis several times now and have been more impressed each time we go. The food is always delicious, the staff is personable and attentive, the atmosphere is second to none in Seattle. I think my favorite dish here has been the Muscovy duck. The creme brulee is my favorite desert (pretty much ever). And I've ordered the Peter Canlis salad every time because it's that good.

A surprising (in a good way) tasting menu with some memorable highs. Be on the lookout for Apples dish (covered with shaved fois gras torchon), boudin noir agnolotti, and aged squab, they are must gets. There's also a halibut dish with a forgettable hunk of fish but an absolutely mind-blowing side of artichoke hearts. Gorgeous panoramic views if you're at the right table. Generally attentive service and knowledgeable wine staff, but there was one glaring miscue: we were not even offered coffee/tea with our dessert/mignardises.

I read the reviews and was a little concerned. We went here for my friends birthday. We had a wonderful experience. The service was impeccable. The food was absolutely delightful, fresh, and the atmosphere was dazzling. Love love loved my experience here.

In 2002 on Valentine's Day my fiancé took me to dinner at Canlis. After dinner we waited for the valet to bring the car.(I was not privy to the fact that you do not actually wait for your car afterward at the time.) I had only been to the restaurant once. I stood waiting when a 1937 Classic Packard car drove up and opened the door for my date and I. Needless to say I was engaged that evening. I had been a little annoyed earlier when my boyfriend that night ordered the Chocolate soufflé which takes 45 minutes and then suddenly he rushed me out before it arrived! The car was arriving. After the proposal he did make good on the soufflé. As crazy busy as they were they seated us again for our desert. I had no idea about my fiance's plan but my Grandparents were married on Valentine's Day hence the cliche. The service and food were exemplary. Such a great memory, I felt like royalty that Feb night in 2002. Stay tuned!

Book in advance for the full experience or try to catch a seat at the bar. Formal dressy attire. Exceptional service. Live piano music. Delicious artisan food; shrimp was perfect. Went for a celebration in a group of 4, seated a table away from the window. We were there for the later seating and stayed until close. The biography of the founder who served famous politicians and brought cultural, sophisticated, fine dining to Seattle is worth reading to truly capture the essence of Canlis.

We went here for my father in-laws birthday. We drove from PDX to celebrate and were told this place was exceptional. The service was excellent. Attentive and very watchful. However the food was REALLY salty! The extremely expensive steak was too tough to cut with the knife they gave us. And the macaroons were more like flavored marshmallows. We were very disappointed.

Although Canlis has been highly rated by others, our experience there was a real disappointment. Having dined at many world-class venues throughout the world, I cannot recommend this restaurant to Seattle's guests based on either the food or service.

I visited for my birthday and loved it. I was worried because I had read the bad reviews, but this place is perfect. The ambiance was amazing and the food was wonderful. I enoyed my experience and will definitely be coming back.
