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."

One of the best views in the city. Went there for an event, the up stairs bartender was experienced and helpful, using his skills to introduce us to all sorts of cool unusual drinks. The steak was tender and savory. They had an excellent piano player on the first floor which created a great ambiance. One of the coolest restaurants in Seattle, would definitely recommend for a high end fancy dinner.

The atmosphere overlooking the water is outstanding. Their service is over the top and the attention to detail is unbelievable. This is fine of a restaurant experiences I've had in recent years. from the chefs appetizer taster two salads to the main course the atmosphere and food cannot be beat. The Canlis family is on the 3rd Generation with this restaurant don't miss it if you go to Seattle

Canlis is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. The service is *always* impeccable, and you truly feel kind of like royalty. Seriously! And even if the food were just so so -- which it's not! -- I would want to come here for the view of Lake Washington. It's so tranquil. The windows are huge and tall and if you are lucky enough to get there as it turns into night -- you are in for a memorable evening of bliss!
