    We went to Salito's looking for good seafood and we found it. The outdoor dining was excellent and the food was great. We'd go there again.

    This is a hidden gem. The atmosphere on the water is great, the outdoor heaters are highly effective when the sun goes down, the service is 5 star, and the food is better than good. We had not been there before but will definitely return. We did not know that it is the same restaurant group as The Dead Fish in Crockett which is also highly recommended for good and atmosphere. The prices are expensive but not overly so. The only criticism I have is that the parking situation sucks and you should be prepared to walk a couple of blocks to get there. Overall: Highly recommended.

    We arrived at Salito's at 4 PM and left at 10 PM. We met old and close friends there who we don't see often enough because we live far enough away from each other to make that difficult. Our server was very sweet and accommodating and didn't put any pressure on us to move on. The menu was varied and interesting and the food was very good. The bar provided good drinks and the wine list was decent. The ambience is unique and beautiful. We sat outside and watched the sun set over the yacht harbor which is next to the deck of the restaurant. Although the weather got a little chilly at one point the restaurant has well positioned outdoor heaters and an awning which is retractable. All in all I give this restaurant an A+.

    We had A delightful, lunch, seated looking out over the patio and yacht harbor of Sausalito..sunny, warm and relaxing.....great attentive and friendly service, best bloody "chile' Mary ever, and the seafood pasta with generous portions of crab, cod, prawns, baby calamari mussels and a perfect cioppino sauce, a big wow. the crab cake, all crab and no fillers to distract, very tasty. Huge portion of fried calamari was huge and perfectly done..roasted mussels were yummy as were the crab enchiladas, with generous portions of crab.....all 7 of us were all very happy a perfect parfait of cappuccino, mocha and chocolate mousse. Definitely, we will return to and recommend to our friends....free parking and an easy walk from the ferry plaza.

    It was a delightful evening at Salitos... Everything could not have been better except our waiter wasn't on the ball. Two people at our table didn't get their meal with everyone else and they had to wait because he either didn't take their order or overlooked their order. Other than that everything was great.

    When we first went to Salito's we were disappointed by the disorganized service, it was BAD! However, we tried again and again, and have been very happy with not only the service but the quality of the food. They have a great selection and many gluten free choices.

    I thought a "seafood" place with the Cioppino posted over 1/4 of a page on the menu deserves much to brag about. But not quite. The Cioppino was limited in seafood, just a couple of tiny shrimps, and mussels but lots of potatoes (really??) corn on the cob and carrots. The sauce was too thick with no thyme or herb flavor. I will go to San Francisco's Wharf area for Cioppino's any time.

    Beautiful setting on the water, boats, islands, birds, etc., plus limited parking. BUT food was mediocre to terrible, the worst chowder I've ever had. If they served Progresso's, it would be an improvement. Service slow and they actually brought back a fork from a cleared plate. This could be a stand-out, sell-out restaurant if management cared enough. For the best you're going to get from this place, just go for drinks and an appetizer on a lovely evening.

    Eating at Salito's is a great place to eat. Plenty of options to chose from on the menu and all good. It is the kind of place that fits any occasion you want to have or "you want to make it." Dress up or dress down, Quiet or Fun.

    We went to Salito's for my daughter's 18th birthday. 4 adults and 3 late teens. The view is truly amazing, the bar looked energetic and fun. The food, however, was just underwhelming. Ciopinno was not will stocked with seafood, the calamari was chewy and not fried well, the beet salad was tasty and fresh. The service was also poor. The waiter forgot a side dish for the birthday girl, was not around when we wanted to order more wine and the picking up the check took way too long. I would go back for a cocktail, NOT for dinner

    First of all, the scenery on the waterfront and the service was above average. The real disappointment came with the food. The clam chowder is grossly misnamed, as it was in my opinion potato soup with some crab meat sprinkled on top. The crab enchilada and steamed crabs both failed to wow as well. Overall, not what we were expecting.

    Loved having the ability to choose several different items to sample off of the menu! The portions were more than adequate and everything was delicious - each item with its own unique taste as opposed to everything tasting the same with the same spices and flavors. In addition to the crab, the crab cakes and mussels are a must-have - as is the bread!! Service was very good and attentive.

    First, they tried to seat me in a corner by kitchen (I reserved a water view). Then, when I used restroom, they cleared my table and were already seating someone else when I returned. My Loiue salad with crab came without crab. My waiter went missing and I could not check out. And, worst of all, I received none of sincere apologies.

    food was very good. our waiter rushed us to order our main course when we just wanted to enjoy our drinks and appetizers before ordering our main course. His only concern was to turn his table another few more times. Never had a high end restaurant rush us the manner he did especially with the prices Salito charges.

    Salito's signature dish is dungeness crab prepared every conceivable way. My favorite is the crab burrito. But, they offer other great dishes like sand dabs and pork osso bucco. With ample outdoor dining with a great view of Saussalito's Richardson Bay, this is the place for lunch or an early summer dinner. Service can be slow, but the manager will get someone to your table pronto when you ask. And, don't miss the salted carmel cake; it's the best dessert in the area!!
