The Trident has "it all". Sitting on the water, it has 180 degrees of San Francisco Bay views. We chose to sit on the patio, under the bank of infrared heaters. It was a bit breezy when we arrived but the wind went down with the sun and I was comfortable with a shirt and sweater. This was on July 8th, 2013. We enjoyed freshly shucked Washington State oysters as our appetizers. They were set upon trays of ice and Jicama (the Jicama helped stabilize them as they were brought to our table but the shreds of it weren't worth eating).
The cocktails were good. The wine was good (not an extensive list from which to choose) and the main dishes pleased each of our party of four.

Great view of the bay from all tables; great outside if warm enough; boats pulling up; people bustling; menu has good choices for everyone; fun drinks (Mic Jaggers favorite); friendly all around; will go back every time I am in the area. Only negative for me was they were out of Anchor Steam beer, a local favorite but quickly replace by a fine alternative. Go and have fun.

We have lived here all our lives in Marin and never came to The Trident before. Always seemed out of our league. Our friend wanted to dine here for the view and close to the water so that is what brought us here. We were delighted with everything about it.
It is out of our normal price range for regular dining but for a special occasion it is worth it. The waiter was very good and attentive and the food was excellent. Nice presentation and just the right amount of food. An enjoyable experience. Thank you.

The best of both worlds.
We celebrated my wife’s birthday and we had an excellent time. We were seated outside on a gorgeous sunny day and the view of the city was wonderful. When seated my wife noticed that they had printed her name on the menu in celebration of her birthday. The food was delicious and was perfectly cooked. We order appetizers and the crab cakes and calamari were well cooked. The catch of the day swordfish was nice and fluffy. The lobster was sweet and tender. The customer service was excellent and we recommend calling ahead because it gets full after 2:00pm.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Best Anniversary Dinner
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 4 year anniversary with dinner at the Trident. I let them know in advance it was for a special occasion and they reserved a really romantic table for us overlooking the water ( we were even running late and they still kept the table for us)! They had live music, great food, great service, great drinks! Overall it was a great experience. My wife and I are thinking of going there every year for our anniversary and making it a tradition!

Outstanding view of the city & bay
Make a lunch reservation and sit outside, the views of the bay and the city are spectacular. The service is top notch and the food is extremely good. Very nice spot to entertain out of town visitors.

Not just for tourists! Wonderful!
I've lived in the Bay Area for years and knew Horizons before the Trident was reborn under it's historic name, The Trident. I took my mother and 18 year old son for dinner and we had a wonderful evening. The food--seafood is a speciality--was impressive. Truly delicious. Wonderful clams & mussels, fresh crab and shrimp, both as appetizers, followed by delicately sauteed prawns, for an entree. The salad, with local heirloom tomatoes, was especially delicious. We hardly had room for dessert, but are glad we indulged! The citrus and lavender creme brulee(s) were amazing. A wonderful evening!

Nice view, great server, food OK
We brought some out of town visitors for an early lunch on a Sunday. We had a reservation and were seated at a window table. The view to the bay and the city was fantastic and was one of the highlights for our visitors. Our server was great - very personable and efficient. Our water glasses and coffee cups were never empty and he made sure we were satisfied but he was never intrusive. The food was just OK. The fish and chips were heavily breaded. The salmon sandwich was tasty and the salmon was not overcooked (a common problem at other establishments), although the piece of salmon was small. The crab cake sandwich was OK but not remarkable. So, I'd recommend this place for the view and the service, and the food is OK.

Easy to brag about
We had guests from New York and wanted to have brunch in Sausalito -- OF COURSE I chose the Trident -- the day was beautiful -- fog lifted as we dined -- America's cup boats were visible as they practiced -- food was wonderful -- service very nice -- we were able to visit and linger and it was no problem.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun restaurant with good food and excellent service.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great table for 2 outside and one of the best meals ever! My scallops were incredible and my husband cioppino was fantastic. And let's not forget the coconut covered bananas for dessert. We'll be repeat customers for sure!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service for the table
Great service for the table and the valet parking. Great food, even my dad was happy. Loved the Salad Crab Louie and the crab cake wrap. Excellent spot for lunch. Thank you Trident!

Great View and ambiance.
Great View and ambiance.
Good food but caters to tourists due to high menu pricing
Wine list is minimum and selections are overpriced.

Good time at Trident
Stopped by on Saturday around 7:00. Had reservations and were immediately seated outside with a killer Bay View. Service arrived quickly and was friendly and efficient. For a tourist spot, the food was quite good. Maybe the best fish and chips I've bad, and the heirloom and watermelon salad was great. Live music was just right. I live in Sausalito and am happy to see the Trident doing this well.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sausalito has quite a few restaurants with good food. I think the Trident's food is as good as any other but they have a wider selection of types of food which makes it a good choice if someone wants seafood and someone else steak or a salad.
Our server was phenomenal - which to me makes all the difference between a good meal and a great one!
This restaurant seems to have more "view tables" than many others on the water.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service and ambience was wonderful at a reasonable price.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great meal with wonderful service and a million dollar view! We would absolutely go back.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place with great character
And a great view and good food. A nice romantic place

Back to the past
Great location, lots of memorabilia, good to takes visitors wanting to have a taste of the 60's and 70's.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Trident is an old favorite of this Marin native. The food was excellent - fish and chips, day boat scallops, calamari - and our server was attentive. It was the perfect outdoor ending to our America's Cup day. The City twinkled, the heaters kept us warm and we dined under actual, real starts!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very special and personal evening
I booked the reservation and asked for a personal touch to help a good friend enjoy the evening. The staff accommodated my request and followed through all evening because my friend's son had worked in the restaurant and he had been well liked. Everyone was very thoughtful and even the manager came by to say a few words that were much appreciated.
We will return because of the good memories and to make some more.

Spirit of Marin County
I hadn't been to the Trident in many years, but after a very enjoyable dinner with some business associates, I was taken with how wel run it is. The food exceeded expectations, and the service was friendly and attentive. The music was just reminiscent enough of the restaurant's early years to add a touch of naustalgia. All in all, a very nice experience.
9/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
My new favorite restaurant.
In Sausalito for our 31st anniversary. Had read about the Trident, and made a reservation. Great view, food, and vibe. We sat at Janis Joplin's table. Liked it so much we went back the next night for dessert, and the next night for supper. The sole, salmon, filet mignon, and crab salad were all fantastic.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were very good. The view is awesome! You are looking across the bay at San Francisco.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent view! House salad
excellent view! House salad large but delicious. Waiter not very helpful with menu and they were out of oysters.

Indian Summer Al Fresco Dining
What a view from Sausalito and wonderful luncheon menu for a late warm September day!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spectacular Views of SF
Trident is a great place to take anyone visiting the Bay Area, a romantic date, or lunch with friends. The scenery is perfect for a sunny afternoon and sipping on a chilled beer or crisp glass of wine outside. The fish tacos are fresh, delicious, melt in your mouth and some of the best fish tacos I've ever had!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place to go for dining on the Sausalito waterfront with scenic view of San Francisco only a short ferry ride away. calamari appetizer and salmon entree were both very good, and the staff gave excellent wine suggestions. Would definitely recommend to friends and plan to come back on a future visit to the area.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is outstanding, and
The food is outstanding, and the views endless. A wonderful place for a local or a visitor. Better yet, take your guests here for an evening they will talk about for a long time to come.

Great Birthday Dinner!
I made reservations for my boyfriends dinner in October. We had a great dinner outside on the patio. There was a nice-hot heater out there that was perfect. The food was terrific. Definitely enjoy this place every time I have been here.
10/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of the best locations
One of the best locations for outdoor seating over the water, staff was very friendly, good was great, extremely happy we went to Trident.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The seafood dishes and seating on the bay were so lovely. Definitely would recommend a visit.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Location location etc
The food was good not Wow but the location made this restaurant a meal to remember. The kids watched Sea Lions swin only yards from our table while we watched the San Francisco city lights glow in the twilight. I recommend the outdoor seating.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went with a friend from Oregon and we had a great time. The view is spectacular. Our food was very good and fairly priced.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were given a seat by the window with an amazing view of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. The seafood was prepared perfectly and was as fresh as one would expect.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful visit to the Trident. Maybe it's just me but when I spend over $50 per person for dinner....tablecloths seem imperative. Our food was great and the old Trident wood decor brought back memories. The music was a little loud but enjoyable. Worth a visit.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT VIEWS GOOD FOOD AND EXCELLENT
I THINK IF YOU PARK AND EAT THAT THE FIRST 2 HOURS SHOULD BE FREE!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM

Great dining experience. Bartender, Host, Waiter all did a great job. I will return.

We booked a table and mentioned that it was our honeymoon. Not sure if we had the table we had because of that but it was amazing. Great food, service everything.

Awesome brunch on the water!!
What a special place in Suasalito! We had brunch here this past Sunday and absolutely loved everything about it. We had delicious Bloody Mary's out on the deck sitting side-by-side on benches looking straight out to the bay ...then we were shown to our table on a slightly higher deck with the exact same spectacular views. We each ordered the clam chowder, then we split the crab cake eggs Benedict. The Benedict was fabulous...full of crab and one of the best hollandaise sauces I've ever had. Our server was very attentive. You must go if you are looking for a great spot for a delicious brunch with a spectacular view of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge!!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Lunch break for a Day Sail
After a morning sail we pulled up to the dock and had a wonderful lunch break. A table out on the deck with a wonderful view, fantastic food, fellowship, and libation, and then easy access back onto the bay for a wonderful afternoon sail. Highly recommend it.

We rode the ferry from San
We rode the ferry from San Francisco and the only change I would make would be to come to Sausalito earlier in the day while the stores are open and the sun is up. It gets very dark, very quickly. And while the view from the restaurant was great, I would have enjoyed seeing the sun set and more of the quaint stores open. Restaurant, itself is iconic and very, very good. Great service and great food.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first stop after arriving in San Francisco, and it was one of the highlights of our meals in the bay area. We enjoyed the lunch so much that we made sure we had our final lunch there before flying out a week later. Service was some of the friendliest and most accommodating we had. The food was incredibly fresh, down to the salad dressings! Seasonings were the perfect enhancements to the meals - excellent flavors. We would recommend Trident to anyone for a casual atmosphere with picturesque vistas (a real treat to Jerseyites and Marylanders) and delectable food. Can't wait to go back.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been around since the '60's
This is the sort of place where if you ask someone who's lived here through the '60's and '70's, they'll roll their eyes and say, "of course." It has retained much of its charm even though the long haired hippies have been replaced with middle-aged hedgefunders in pink shirts and their trophy wives.
But you don't go here for any other reason than the food is good and the view is remarkable. Sit outside next to the wall on a cold day; their heaters will keep you warm and you'll still be able to take in the panoramic from tiburon to the peaks of the Golden Gate.
Really good food, and mostly worth the high price. Cocktails are a little too sweet.

Cliff House in Nov
The view was wonderful & we were seated by the window for an early dinner. Arrived in time for sunset. The food was excellent as well as the service. I would go back to visit for a daytime meal.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Location and Food - Fabulous
Arrived in the quaint city of Sausalito and easily found the Trident. Service and food was very good - View was outstanding!
It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a wonderful window table with great view.
The food selection was limited - but excellent selections!
We thoroughly enjoyed the morning in Sausalito...
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
