Canlis! That's my vote!
My husband took me there for my birthday last year. It was amazing! I wore a beautiful, touch the floor, red, shiny, ball gown and he wore his shnazzy suit.
I've never been treated so good in my life. We had at least 5 waiters so there was CONSTANTLY someone there to help us. We felt like the only couple in the restraunt. In fact, I'm clumsy and spilled a glass of water. In a matter of two seconds (I didn't even have time to get over the sock of the spill or stand up) there were three people around us cleaning it up and we didn't even notice they were there. One guy scraped the ice off the table (with a fancy tool and ice place), one guy dried it, another guy recovered the spot so as to make sure I didn't get wet. In a matter of seconds the mess was cleaned and I was still sitting there in shock. They also have little touches like, if you let them know you are taking someone special they will give him/her a menu without pricing (you will get the one with pricing). It's SO amazing! I can't wait to go back. All in all, we spent around $250 I think - but we don't drink alcohol.

That matches my experience almost exactly. It was terrific! What a place.

It's actually between Redmond and Woodinville off NE 145th St / SR-202. I drive by it every so often.

There's a lot of wineries in that area, and you can even go to the Redhook Brewery.

Do read their policies though before thinking about going there. They are frequently booked-out for long stretches of the year (well, maybe not now with the economy in the dumper, but you should check).

Just check the menu, because while good, it's not your typical red sauce Italian.
