Landmark fine-dining destination (since 1950s) offering Pacific NW fare in a midcentury-modern home.- Google
"The atmosphere is so relaxed (the live piano was amazing!"
"I know that fine dining tends to be like this but frankly I'm sort of over it."

Waiters rushed over to fold the napkin that my husband left on the table after getting up. Very tedious and attentive staff. I said "excuse me" slightly to my waitress as she passed, a man appeared out of nowhere asking how he can help me. The food is great. Certain flavors are certainly an acquired taste. The service is absolutely amazing. Surely a night to remember. The valet is included, so does the tasty bread, appetizer samples, snack and the chocolate candy bar given with the check. View is okay, a lot of construction and work boats, otherwise nice water and mountains. Very very pricey, so only for the experience or an occasion. (2 waters $12 ...Bill for two : $350)

The entire staff were incredible. They were considerate enough to keep some of our things in the back since we had been out shopping and even wrote a list of other places to check out during my stay in Seattle. After we finished dinner, our waiter shared with us and let us keep a vintage menu since Canlis had also been in San Francisco (where I am from). The food was absolutely delicious and the options were incredible. I highly recommend the restaurant. I actually get beer when I go out and the selection was phenomenal. A must go if ever in Seattle!!

I love this place my B/F and I always celebrate by going here. Super nice place very classy and everything we've ever tried off the menu has been amazing . Not cheap eats but if you want a special dinner to remember you should definitely consider an evening at Canlis.

this place is expensive! I took the wife here and she was happy as can be. Its not everyday we go out to fine dine. This set up the night to remember for sure. So many events happen after lol. The service was good like it should have been but the food was just ok, maybe it was because I knew I wasted a paycheck and I lost my appetite. I think I could cook better at home

My wife is currently on a quest to visit the top 40 restaurants in the nation, and after visiting a fair number of them already, I can't imagine Canlis being lower than number 1. We chose to do the Chef's Tasting, and opted to do one classic wine pairing and one somelier tasting. Starting with a trio of appetizers (including the fanciest tater tot and most delicious mushroom tart I've ever had), we moved into an artichoke salad that I could eat every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of. The fluke ceviche was next (fluke combined with pickled strawberries, who knew how delicious that could be?!? Chef Jason, that's who), then lobster, then sous-vide squab so tender you could probably cut it just by looking at it funny. The strawberries with fromage blanc we're a nice, refreshing bite before we dived in to the chocolate ganache. Now, if that wasn't enough to convince you to pay Canlis a visit, the people might be reason enough just by themselves. Aaron and Brett waited on us for most of the night, but we saw many friendly faces throughout the course of the evening. Every single server we encountered was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about what we were eating, but Brett was the MAN! Super enthusiastic the entire night, well prepared to talk about all aspects of the dishes we were eating, and quick to jump in with a comment on the wines that Kevin had chosen to pour for us. Brett told us about his time working in Napa and his passion for food and wine was readily apparent. Kevin, our somelier, chose some fantastic wines, and by doing both of the different wine tastings, we got to experience something slightly different with each dish. Another incredibly knowledgeable guy, Kevin was quick to answer any questions we had on the wines. At the end of the night, Aaron was kind enough to offer us a behind the scenes tour of the facility, the wine cellar, and the kitchen. Showing us around, he told us all about the history of the restaurant, how Mr. Canlis opened the restaurant and lived above it for awhile and answered the burning question of, "why is that phone in the middle of the dining room?" I'll never tell, so if you want to know, you'll have to go and find out for yourself! Brett took us down to the wine cellar, then gave us backstage passes to the kitchen, where we got a chance to talk to Chef Jason. The restaurant was packed all night long, so for everyone, especially Chef, to take the time to talk with us and show us around restaurant was unbelievably generous. I genuinely wish I could give Canlis more than 5 stars. They are a restaurant that could easily earn 5 stars on service alone, but could add another 5 stars for the quality of food. I honestly don't know why they don't charge more (don't tell them I said that).

Canlis hasn't shared anything with you.
