  • ckayler reviewCanlis is by far the best dining experience Seattle has to offer. The food is always superb. The service is excellent. We have never had anything less than a great experience there is 15 years. We only wish they would bring back the dress code. We prefer not to dine with people who aren't dressed for a night out.

    55555 by ckayler


  • daniellem reviewCertainly the best dining experience in Seattle, hands down.

    55555 by daniellem


  • David N.Do the chef tasting menu and, make sure to say hi to the owners. The brothers that now run @Canlis are awesome and always walking the floor. It's the best dining experience in Seattle.

  • Jenn W.This place is totally worth the price tag. Food is fantastic and service is unparalleled.

  • Nicholas J.Absolutely all it's cracked up to be. The epitome of postwar architecture, and the kitchen and wine is to match. It was a lifetime ambition to do dinner here.

  • Alexander S.For the vegans: Canlis graciously prepared a seven course vegan tasting menu and everything was executed perfectly. Happy birthday to me!

    55555 by Alexander S.


  • Mike P.The Canlis salad is a delicious course not to be passed up. The glazed duck for two is beautifully prepated.

    55555 by Mike P.


  • Mel DogThe duck is quite honestly out-of-this-world. Service is impeccable and the view is gorgeous. A special place!

    55555 by Mel Dog


  • Nigel R.Go for the three course and pair some wine. You will be too full for desert but the food is so amazing... That won't matter.

    55555 by Nigel R.


  • Mike P.The bar smells funny.

  • Brad G."A stunningly beautiful example of non-ironic retro glamour. A kitchen with 60-some years of tradition that not only knows how to do a proper hunk of bleeding meat, but has taken on chef Jeff Franey."

    55555 by Brad G.


  • Randy B.Hands down the greatest service I've ever got. The good was very excellent. Had the roast duck and it was one of the best things I've ever had. A little on the high end $$ wise, but not by much

  • Marc E.Tom Douglas choice for Best Cocktail Bar: For classy, the elegant Canlis.

    55555 by Marc E.


  • Yatharth G.You can never be over-dressed for this place. Wear a jacket, enjoy the view with cocktails and do order the steak tartare.

    55555 by Yatharth G.


  • Mike N.The Holy Fucking Grail of Seattle fine dinning. Get a window seat, bring a ton of cash and have your mind blown.

  • Thomas B.Thank you Boeing

  • Sarah P.Beef for two + truffle fries = amazing. Service was impeccable (Matthew & the team). A must-go!

    55555 by Sarah P.


  • Scott A.Get the tasting menu. Wagyu and Uni Panna Cotta dishes are outstanding. Beautiful views of Seattle and service that was not at all stuffy. Definitely a Seattle highlight.

    55555 by Scott A.


  • Vinny L.Get the lamb chop (if it's in season). Best thing on the menu. Seriously.

    55555 by Vinny L.


  • Vinny L.Get the Wagner Remix cocktail (scotch, vermouth and orange).

    33333 by Vinny L.


  • Christy P.Ask for Matthew for the best service in the world!

    55555 by Christy P.


  • Chef B.The piano music is epic! Nirvana & STP!

    55555 by Chef B.


  • MariaAmazing piano player! Even more amazing is the food. Have the crab cake, foie gras, duck for two, twice baked potato. You'll thank me.

    55555 by Maria


  • Virginia R.If you want the chocolate soufflé for dessert, order it at the same time as your main meal to avoid the 30-min prep time.

    33333 by Virginia R.


  • Matt M.I proposed here (she said yes) and the Canlis staff was so wonderful to work with! I could not have asked for a more perfect night in the Cache room, this one of the best nights of my life!

    55555 by Matt M.


  • Matt O.ask for a tour of the wine cellar. History of the restaurant is quite amazing and the staff are all skilled storytellers! Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

    55555 by Matt O.


  • GourmetLiveFood blogger Anandi of House of Peanut recommends Canlis. "The wine list is unreal and includes countless local wines as well as vintages from around the world."

  • Seattle MetDid we expect less, of the Canlis lounge, than to excel as a cocktail bar? Extra points for selecting James MacWilliams, a barman known for esoteric experimentation and attention to detail.

    55555 by Seattle Met


  • Seattle MetThe brilliance of Canlis is that it isn’t content to let mythic be enough. Jason Franey is an extraordinary chef: nudging the old girl into the new century without back-burnering classics.

    55555 by Seattle Met


  • Terri N.Whatever you order as an entree, the Canlis salad and truffled fried potatoes are great additions.

  • Seattle MetA cocktail bar may be measured by the quality of its drinks and service, and by a third less-easy-to-pinpoint criterion loosely defined as ambience.

    33333 by Seattle Met


  • Joni M.Honestly, I don't understand the hype. While the service was GREAT, the food was quite average and not worth the high price tag (except the twice baked potato and truffle fries)

    33333 by Joni M.


  • Seattle MetAnd over at Canlis —hardly the land of culinary gimmickry—Jason Franey um… spherificates, a technique he picked up during his time at Manhattan’s 11 Madison Park.

  • BravoYou gotta respect the skill and dedication it has taken to keep a fine-dining restaurant going for so long. The food is the best it’s ever been with Chef Jason Franey in the kitchen.-Maria Hines, Top

  • Nathaniel S.Amazing. Find an excuse to go.

  • Richard F.Wonderful place and a great dining experience. Thank you.

  • Paul F.The food is very good, but what makes Canlis is the attention to detail and the personal touches provided by the staff. Amazing.
