Katie, the events person was such a joy to work with! She made me feel at ease about everything related to our wedding. Canlis is known for their service and they did not disappoint the night of our wedding. It honestly felt like I was hosting an event at home. The drinks were delicious and the food was incredible. We were so glad that we chose to have such an important event at Canlis :)Sent on 08/19/2014

Having our ceremony and reception at Canlis was one of the best decisions we made about the wedding! We spent over a year looking at venues and couldn't ever find the perfect one until we came across Canlis. It's a smaller venue (the penthouse above the restaurant) and fits about 60 people, but has amazing views of Gasworks Park and UW as well as the bay. The real reason we picked Canlis, though, was the food and service. I can't speak highly enough about both but was truly impressed by the service. Impeccable. During the dinner service I snuck back to where I had stored my purse which was just outside the kitchen and couldn't believe how seriously they took their job: no joking or laughing, just serious discussions about who was delivering food where. The catering coordinator (Katie) was also great to work with beforehand. Flexible doesn't begin to describe her: she was so easygoing and approachable we were laughing because she said "yes" to almost everything we asked. She had great vendor recommendations for the cake (New Renaissance Cakes) and pianist (Lennon Aldort) and we were very happy with both. It meant the world to us that we could trust her. The whole team at Canlis worked together to make our wedding absolutely perfect!Sent on 11/09/2013
