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."

Spectacular service! We went with our three year old son and they were amazing with all of us which is pretty rare for upscale restaurants like this one. They have a spectacular wine selection. While they may not have hundreds of options, the ones they have are some of the best. As for the food, I was a little underwhelmed. Their steak tartare is great if not a bit heavy on the sauce but I wasn't a fan of their crab appetizer. We had steak and ordered a side of wild mushrooms which was a bit on the salty side. They complimented the slightly underseasoned steak well but since it's an optional dish that's not a good thing. It's good food but I expected more for the kind of restaurant this is. The saving grace though was dessert. They have THE BEST soufflé! Best we've ever had (and we've had and made quite a few). Their Japanese cheesecake was also great as well as the macaroons they give you at the end.

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.

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.

Best creme brulee anywhere. Appetizers/food/service not shabby either. Our granddaughter loved her birthday dinner.

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.
