Good food and view!
I always enjoy Salute. The food is consistently good and the service is friendly. We had a booth along the water which is always nice and is a lovely way to enjoy a meal. I had the sole which was good but very small pieces - not what you would expect with petrale sole. I love the spinach that comes with the fish. My friend had a pasta dish which he said was excellent. Salute is a wonderful spot in a city that only has a handful of really good restaurants.

This is a beautiful restaurant
This is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and ambiance...and a beautiful owner with such an inspirational story. Everyone should take the time to review their website. Excellent Oysters on the half shell, delicious Salmon and the Mushroom Pizza was fantastic!
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

This has become my favorite Bay Area restaurant. I love the food, the staff, the decor and the setting. It's always a good time. It's a great date place as well as my 7-year old grandson's favorite "fancy" restaurant. We go often.

Before a concert at Richmond's Craneway Pavilion, we had dinner at this hidden gem of a restaurant. Food was great as always. I love to sit by the window and watch the bay. The mouth watering dessert tray kept coming around, but we were a little short on time.

Take your book club here for brunch
Our book club met here for brunch on Sunday and we were given a lovely round table, perfect for including everyone in our discussion. The brunch menu (which we concentrated on) was very appealing with good food and service. The views are of course lovely. We plan to have our next meeting there as well. The regular menu is also very nice, but we chose from the brunch menu on this visit. The noise level was also very nice, and conducive to conversation, so I hesitate to tell people about it, just because we liked it as it was...tough balancing act, to like a place well enough to recommend it, but not so it gets so popular, we can't hear ourselves think. Oh, well, we'll take our chances. Try this place, it's lovely!

A lovely lunch
My good friend and I have gotten together for lunch every now and then since high school, fifty years ago! Dining at Salute was grand...it was quiet, we were treated with consideration, the food was terrific and the view of the harbor was very satisfying...what more could a person want?

Food is consistently very good. It took a long time to get dessert, for some reason, this time. It was also very noisy this time. I would still go back.

The Steak Florentine was excellent but the pork medallions on the risotto were tough and tasteless which was a shame 'cause the risotto itself was quite good!

salute on july 4
Hostess very charming, and attentive making the very busy ambiance much more pleasant. We expected a crowd for july 3 fireworks and therefore lousy food and service. The crowd was there, service very busy but acceptable. However the food was very good, shrimp tender and juicy, lamp chops also tender. Both dishes came hot, amazing considering the crowd.
Hope Salute will keep up. Of course the setting in Richmond Marina is beautiful and the price is not too expensive.

Love it here !
A very special place on the water in Richmond. Lovely walking area nearby. Great service and wonderful food.

Great restaurant - good food and service with the feel of a neighborhood "local". Owner and family seem to know
most of the people who come in, and take the time to try to get to know the newcomers. Nice variety on the menu,
good sized portions, and very reasonable prices. We've had numerous family gatherings here, and the service and
attention has always been great.

Hard to find, but worth the effort
Great restaurant - don't let the Richmond address discourage you from the great dining experience available. Views of the SF Bay, great ambiance, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff and wonderful owner. Located near to the Richmond Yacht Harbor. There is even a dock so you probably tie up your boat and dine in the restaurant - haven't tried this (no boat) but you could call and find out.
We always have a great experience and have dined here many times. We have been for brunch and dinner and even hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for 20+ people.

We ALWAYS Love Salute's!
Salute's is our neighborhood Italian restaurant that never fails to please! We always get a warm welcome from the owner, Menembre, whether we are there for a cappuccino in the afternoon at the bar or for dinner or lunch in one of the charming rooms, one being an outside deck,but all having a yacht harbor view! Salute's could be Richmond's best kept secret that shouldn't be kept a secret because the food in general is quite good and the ambiance is delightful!

We continue to go to this

I took my wife there for her birthday. Wonderful food, friendly staff and romantic waterfront location.

Good food; spectacular views
Salute is a hidden gem on the Richmond waterfront. The menu has both traditional Italian and creative dishes. It has a separate and lively bar area.

We hadn't been to this restaurant in quite a while and it was just as good as we remembered. The dinner and setting were delightful sitting by the window overlooking the water. We shared a butter lettuce salad and each had the Salmon which was cooked to perfection with nice vegetables. A very relaxing and enjoyable evening. An out of the way location but well worth going when in the area.

Great experience for a family dinne
Including small kids, Salute E Vita Ristorante was ideal. The menu was broad enough to satisfy everyone and the quality both in taste and presentation was great. Service was just right. Highly recommended.

Little Italy on the Bay
A local gem right on the water. Wonderful pastas, pizzas taps well as antipastas. The chef combines comfort foods with perfectly executed classics such as spaghetti with clams

Get family treatment by the bay!
It is a pleasure to take visitors to this gem along the Bay. Customers are treated like family and your selections are carefully prepared and lovingly served with great attention to detail and to making your experience a delight. Our guests say they have the best time and upon their return, they again and again request to make sure we dine again at Salute!

What a beautiful restaurant
Visited Salute with family and had a wonderful greeting by the owner at the door. She also visited our table to make sure we were all comfortable. She is a charming woman that never seems to age. She runs a very classy restaurant and all our meals were prepared and plated beautifully. Would highly recommend as a place to go! In addition, the owner supports charities and gives back to the community. Exceptional woman with a humility that is charming and inspiring.

My favorite place!
Salute E Vita is terrific. Membere takes a special interest in her customers, and always makes us feel so welcome and so special. And I love the Salute Thanksgiving event.

Good food, good view, nice night
I had never been here before, but knew about it for years. Finally had an occasion to walk over with a friend, and treat ourselves to a relaxing evening. She was impressed with the wine list and the food. And we had a great view of the harbor. The staff was very friendly, and I'm sure we'll be back again. Thanks!

Absolutely awesome Italian restaurant. I moved from NYC last year --- the polenta here was much better than any NYC Italian restaurant I ate at previously.
Amazing, amazing, amazing. Superb!!!!

Excellent lunch, excellent view
We celebrated a birthday with lunch for the two of us. We had been here before, but this time we were seated at a table by the window in the bar, which turned out to be a great spot. The view of the Marina and SF Bay was sparkling, the service by the bartender was warm and competent, and the food was especially good. I had the boneless beef short ribs braised in port wine sauce with saffron risotto: Delicioso!!!! The veal scallopini with lemon and capers was excellent, too. We also had bruschetta with fresh tomato, which was perfectly done the classic Italian way. the wines were a great accompaniment (I had the featured Pinot noir) The room was filled with low-level talk but was not too loud for our conversation. A good place!

everything about this restaurant is a delight. We enjoyed our evening here from the excellent service, comfortable surroundings and delicious food.
