“Relevant and revered, Canlis is an American dining destination”
Maître de Maison
- Kyle Johnson
Three generations of the Canlis family have welcomed guests to Seattle’s most storied and celebrated restaurant. Built by Peter Canlis and architect Roland Terry in 1950, the landmark property is now run by brothers Mark and Brian Canlis. Perched high above the city and adorned in glass, the dining room boasts sweeping views of Lake Union and the Cascade Mountains beyond. It is a perfect backdrop for Chef Jason Franey’s inventive and contemporary yet approachable cuisine. On the menu, reformed classics pair with an enlightened and artfully composed tasting menu. Canlis is a modern restaurant with a sense of history, place and time.
