Are you ready to pay for unforgettable experience? Do you prefer to have free space and not to touch your neighbors' elbows with yours? Do you enjoy wearing suits? Canlis is the restaurant to visit for an exclusive dining experience. It has a dress code for guests to follow and you may be not allowed to enter if something is wrong with your look. When you enter the restaurant you clearly understand what is it all for. This restaurant has a family feel in everything. The atmosphere is breathtaking. The place has a corner to suit any taste and mood: cozy little tables near the bar, the ones for big companies, others with a beautiful scenery of evening Seattle, etc. Canlis is famous for a special attention to the service provided and the owners are proud of it. A side note: the place has late working hours (starting with 5:30 PM), so it is perfect for sunset dinners and proposals.

The average bill is about $62, but it is totally worth it! Come here and be impressed by flavors and the scenery.
