The "next generation of Canlis sons" makes sure that "everything's perfect" at this circa-1950 "Seattle institution" that reinterprets Pacific NW classics and turns out "perfectly executed" meals that are "outstanding from beginning to end" ; in the midcentury-modern room framing a "gorgeous Lake Union view" , service that's "like choreography" anticipates your every need, and while it's all "brutally pricey" , you "definitely get what you pay for."

A very good representation of what Pacific Northwest cuisine can be. Excellent service and cocktails. Probably the most expensive meal you can get in town. It's a very nice place and the view is impossible to match. I wouldn't say it's the best meal in town but worth a visit or two. I had the lamb, canlis salad, rabbit pasta (best dish of the evening) and the chocolate desert.

I took my fiancee for her birthday here with some close friends. I knew this place had phenomenal review and an overflowing list of recommendations from friends. But Canlis actually met the expectations. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere classy, and the view just stops you forcing you to appreciate it. Parking and pulling in can be a bit crowded as it is a small property but their valet was top notch. Great $115 tasting menu to choose for four plates from a variety of dishes. Can't wait to visit here again

We have gone here with my parents every year for their anniversary. I love how they have your car ready right when you leave! And their food is superb and interesting. The view at night by the windows is gorgeous -- especially seeing all the lights on the boats and the city. Great service all around!
