I dined at Canlis on a recent trip to Seattle
I described it as excellent fine dining, but a little too "Foo Foo"(formal) for me. I had the Muscovy Duck($96 for two)
. Probably the best duck I ever had. Between the dry aging and slow cooking all the fat was rendered out, the skin was crispy and the meat succulent. But, when you add in a salad and an appetizer, you are easily around $100 per person without drinks.
Their wine list
is huge and in my opinion, severely overpriced. Mark-ups tend to be around 4-5 times the retail price.
, five people with wine and maybe a cocktail at the bar, easily 800 bucks at this place.
Canlis is also one of the toughest reservations in town.
