    Great space with excellent food and superior service. I look forward to going back soon to sample other items on the menu. Ate in the first floor dining room which was quiet enough to talk in and a stylish atmosphere. I hear the rooftop deck is fantastic on a summer evening!

    The best mussels I've had in a long time. The sauce was amazing! We sat at a table under a light that needed to be replaced as it flickered during our entire stay, annoying. The table we sat at was between the bar and the back room, the divider has small horizontal wood boards at eye level that were very dusty. Our server brought freshly fried potato chips and everyone we bit into was not thoroughly cooked and they were flavorless. We had 5:00 reservations and the bathroom had no paper towels and one of the stalls had no toilet paper. Bathroom should've been stocked seeing how the restaurant had only been open for an hour. Overall, food was very very good, except the homemade chips. Our server was very nice and made us feel welcome.

    KANU's interior conversion from a mercantile building to a 3 story multifunction restaurant continues to be a delight. My second time here and still love the experience. The food itself was pricey. I've had their salmon and also pizza, pizza was decent the salmon was a bit conservative on the flavor, probably needed more flavor.

    Food was cold. I was called about putting a card on the table for my mom for Mother’s Day and confirmed, there was no card. My mom didn’t get her drink until the check was already paid. Service was slow- not attentive.
