    Table was ready at reserved time and was seated immediately. Reception staff very polite and gave instructions about the buffet. Menu looked great, food very disappointing. Many items were empty or had been on the steam tables so long that it was dried out. Quality was poor with the desserts tasting like they were made days ahead of time or kept from the previous day's (Saturday) brunch. Over cooked beef, seafood was empty and took a long time to renew items. Only bright spot of the made-to-order table where the food was excellent. Wait staff was too few to serve adequately. Waited an unacceptable length of time to order drinks and to receive them. Would not recommend the brunch to others, especially for the price of $50 a head.

    The view was great the food was ok but over priced our waiter we had to ask him for water more coffee. We ask for more bread which he never did bring. The coffee came in a mug like you would get at Denny's not cool .The view was the best part. It was our 58th wedding anniversary and it didn't feel special there.

    The view is great but the chef needs to pay more attention to food details. I had the Salty's trio which was calamari, crab cake and coconut shrimp. the calamari and shrimp were over cooked, just shy of being burnt. I would not order this dish again.

    Booked for 25,000 Days dinner celebration on Thurs., Aug 21...realizing there are many requests for "ideal window seating," asked anyway and received fabulous placement at the window (with balloons) allowing us to enjoy waterfront... service was exceptional from everyone- beginning and enhanced by Derrick's congeniality-guidance-efforts, escorted by Lizzie, personally attended to by Trace with deliveries from Chase and Erin. If you had opportunity to choose this team- terrific! Glowing dinner recommendations were fulfilled by superb preparation. We had a meaningful, entertaining, and thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thank you so much Salty's! *Had OT gift certificate to activate online but no Salty's /Alki choice was listed- disallowing use.

    I have eaten at both Salty's a number of times and this was the first time I left feeling disappointed. We were promptly greeted and taken right to a table. even though we were 15 minutes early. The table had a great view of the cityscape and the West Seattle shoreline. Our waiter Casey seemed slammed within a few minutes of our sitting down. Our meals took way too much time to be served. Starters get a mixed review-Calamari was oily and overly battered. Main courses were hit and miss. Alder Smoked (planked?) salmon had a disagreeable topping and bland succotash underneath. Scallops were good. Hidden Creek Salmon was good but swam in a pool of risotto that did not look all that appealing. Bread choices were good. Great waiter/ hosts

    We took our family that is visiting from out of town for brunch and had a wonderful time. We were seated right at the window with an amazing view of Elliott Bay on a beautiful day in Seattle. The view was matched by the excellent food on the brunch buffet, with too much to list. Our guests had a great time and it will be a lasting memory of their trip here and I am sure we will be back as more guests come to visit.

    My wife and I came here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. I made reservations and when we got there at 6:00pm (our reserved time) they asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside. It was nice out so we said out side. We were told 10 minutes, but we can sit in the bar. We went to the bar and service was very slow and it took 15 minutes to get greeted. we finally got out table after 25 minutes had passed. They sat us right next to a door where there was a lot of traffic from servers and guest. The server did not acknowledge that we were there for our anniversary. I only mention that because, I over heard another server ask why they came in.

    We often dine at this Salty's location and every visit has been exceptional. The view of course is the initial draw but I have always had great friendly efficient service and the food is awesome. Any of the menu offerings is suggested and I really like the special menu additions that change it up. The waitstaff know the wine list well and if not familiar with one always offer a taste which is something I appreciate. The seafood is always fresh and well prepared. The Redondo beach location is also a favorite but West Seattle much more convenient to locals Seattle residents. A definite must try, you won't be sorry.

    We felt like we were on a wonderful vacation when we ate at Salty's (even though we live in Seattle). Great atmosphere with outdoor seating right next to the water. Great view of Seattle. Loved the visit from the seal who played around right near the shore. We loved the food too- all of us ordered different varieties of fish, the fish soup - and dessert of course. Fabulous! Our waitress was patient and offered suggestions when asked. Loved her too.

    I have visited Saltys on Alki a couple of times and each time the Salmon lacked flavor, just uninspired. The clam chowder was also lacking. This most recent visit was on a Sunday evening at about 7:30 and it was uncomfortably warm. The service was excellent with the waiter really making us feel special so much so I felt I couldn't complain but later I felt My money would have been better spent elsewhere.

    I have been to Saltys many times; I find their food and service to be great. I had heard that the weekend brunch was amazing. I hadn't been, so when a friend had a birthday; I suggested we go. The food was good. It was fresh and there was plenty of it. The look and feel of the buffet was great. We even got sat outside, which was great and what a view! However, that was where it all ended. The server seemed less then enthused to be there. Almost seeming put out off to explain the buffet to us and then having to make a bloody mary. There were only two place settings and I had to get a third. Fresh silverware and drink refills were always late in coming. Nothing was ruined, but it is true that a server makes or breaks the experience.

    One of the members of our group is deathly allergic to crab & prawn SHELLS. Yet our visitors from San Diego love Dungeness crab. To solve this dilemma I asked our waitress if she could have the chef crack the crab in the kitchen and then serve the crab meat to our guests. Without hesitation she did and voila', it was a lovely brunch. Fabulous Service - thank you!

    My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate, the food was amazing as always and the setting was very romantic. We arrived at the restaurant for a 9 pm reservation and we were seated at a table overlooking the breathtaking Seattle downtown core. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable, and she asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion. Our food came in good time and was really good food. We didn’t want to order any dessert but our friendly waiter brought us a dessert on the house for celebrating our anniversary. It tasted great :). The price was a little high but it’s worth the place and food.

    We booked this at the last minute looking for some great food and views and were very happy with both. Our waitress was really nice and most dishes were very good. I would give the restaurant 5 stars but the dessert was pretty bad. It was a banana/ chocolate combo which just didn't work. We were willing to give it a try because chocolate and anything should be OK, right? Well, not this time. And we thought - you can hardly wreck chocolate so even if we didn't like the banana part, we would be fine but even that was dry and boring. So go for everything but the funky dessert. We had another white cake with fruit that was good so there are some alternatives.

    The food here is terrific. I had the whole Dungeness crab. It was great, I also recommend the oysters and a nice Washington Riesling to wash it all down while enjoying the great view of the amazing city of Seattle. After dinner why not take a stroll on Alki beach which is just up the road. This place is worth a trip over on the water taxi or the drive.

    The server did a great job.However we had a reservation over a week in advance with a added note that requested a window seat. When we arrived, we were given a seat higher up. Still a great seat, but not the best, and when you make a reservation the expectation is likely that you will get the best seat. The reason I KNOW this is because the hostess admitted that they do not reserve the best seats, and I thought this was completely ridiculous.

    Seafood at Salty's is always fresh and delicious. This time we took our 12-year old. He loves shrimp and pasta. He did not see a shrimp pasta on the menu so he ordered pasta with shrimp added. The waitress asked how many shrimps would you like. He said four. When we received our check we were charged $6 per shrimp, making his entrée over $60. Personally, I felt this was a rip-off.
