Tips from the Net @ Canlis

Pricey, but staff are unbelievably attentive (without being intrusive) and the food is great. Extensive wine and whiskey lists (I don't really care about the former, care deeply about the latter). Views of Gasworks and Lake Union are fantastic on a nice day. And Mark Canlis is former Air Force, but I don't hold that against him. 😅 GooglePlace - May 2017

I rarely give 5 stars. Canlis is deserving of this in all areas: service, quality, ambiance and food. For first timers, don't come here expecting a one hour, fast paced meal. This is a dining experience, our last visit was four hours long and worth every second. Average cost is about $200 per person. Also, dress the part, slacks, jacket and tie. Don't be the grown man I saw last night in jeans and a sweater with race cars on it. Food allergies? No problem, they happily accommodate! One of our party was gluten/dairy/corn free. Save up some money, skip that other "nice" restaurant you were planning on going to and try Canlis, you won't be disappointed! GooglePlace - April 2017

The service is what you would expect for the price you pay, but that doesn't make it feel any less special. They will go out of their way to make you feel special to them. We made a reservation and asked for a table with a view. We were seated next to a window that overlooked the whole city lights. It was stunning. The food was amazing and they make gluten free very easy if you need accommodations. The drinks from the bartender are amazing, he will really listen to what you want to drink. People complaining about the portion size are crazy. When you are eating 4 or more courses, you don't want large portions! Perfect for celebrations or special occasions:) GooglePlace - April 2017

What can you say...A Seattle institution. The service is impeccable and the food is very good. It is pricey but is worth a splurge for a special occasion every now and then. You always feel special when you dine here. I would recommend the tasting menu and a wine flight if you can swing it. GooglePlace - April 2017

The food is, without a doubt, some of the best food I've eaten in my entire life. And if I was only rating them on food, Canlis would still get 5 stars. But the entire experience was top-notch. From the second we got out of our car, we were in the best hands in the culinary business. We don't often do expensive dinners out, but a night at Canlis is worth every penny. I highly recommend it for a special occasion or celebration. GooglePlace - March 2017
