    We had an outstanding dining experience last evening! Every person that we dealt with from the hostess to the manager was helpful, attentive and caring. Chris the manager came around and made sure that everything was as expected. He was awesome and sets a great example for his staff to emulate. We ordered off the Seattle Restaurant Week menu and all three courses were fabulous! Chef Paolo and his staff prepared an outstanding meal with great presentation. Our wait staff were attentive and very personable. It is the best dining view in Seattle. Can't wait to go back again soon!

    Overall a good experience. The food was good, but the lines were not replenished enough so when I went to get something is was out, or slim pickings. A little disappointed with the lack of seafood at a legendary seafood buffet. I do not care for a time limit in that setting, and it was quite obvious when we were getting close to the time because the server quit coming to the table, and we sat there with empty drink cups for the last portion of our meal, which left a bad last impression on our first visit to the restaurant.

    I requested an outside seating upon arrival, and while most of the heaters outside around the tables have been turned off, the hostess was so willing to find us a nice corner with a gorgeous view of Downtown Seattle. She even brought us blankets! The food is always amazing here. I had the seafood brochette... the salmon was cooked perfectly. Loved it!

    I have taken guests and family to this Salty's location for dinner and Sunday brunch many times. However, after this last visit, I doubt that there will be a next. I was very disappointed and Salty's truly let me down on a very important occasion. I made reservations in a very timely way and made a special seating and service request to befit the momentous occasion. However, the hostess and wait staff could appeared to care less. The seating that was provided, even after expressing my displeasure with the initial seating location offered, was not to my expectation or as requested, and all I received from the staff were pale excuses and an arrogant "I don't care" attitude. The service was non attentive/sporadic.

    We showed up early for our reservations but they had a mini breakfast buffet for waiting guests with coffee and pastries, which I thought was really nice. The food laid out at the brunch buffet was brilliantly displayed like art. They looked too good to eat. The oysters and crab legs were fresh and memorable. I loved the build-your-own stations for Pasta, Omelet, Crepe, and Bloody Mary. The view was the excellent.

    We were visiting Seattle and looked up places for dining. I selected Salty's for their brunch and was NOT disappointed. It is quite busy so reservations are very helpful. We had to wait about 25 minutes even with a reservation, but the wait was worth it. We were provided a window table and the view of Seattle from there is fabulous...even on a cloudy day. The array of food items was stunning and tasty. I did not have to eat the rest of the day!

    Booked this local gem for our wedding anniversary. Have always wanted to go but wanted to wait for special occasion since it's on the pricey end. Complimentary valet was nice. We checked in early but they waited a little bit for the HH crowd to leave as we reserved dinner. Everyone greeted us with out special day. We got one if their best views of the city. Our server Suzanne was amazing. Food was delicious & visually enticing. They surprised us with a slice of raspberry vanilla cake. It was so good and light! The whole experience was wonderful and we felt special even though the place was packed.

    Called to notify hostess I was on my way 10 minutes away; she gave such attitude as to when I would be there. Upon arrival, dining room was nearly empty. This was the beginning of not so good service. Great view but food was lacking in quality. Server was over the top. Had to ask for drinks then told we never ordered them, he said he didn't write any drink orders. He realized he did, after challenging us. Told we would receive free desserts per "VIP" phone call. We were charged. The view can't be beat, but the quality of food and service needs to step up its game.

    Stunning view. Great food but a bit over priced. Waitress was trying hard but was overwhelmed and had to be asked multiple times for several things and any time we needed anything we had to flag her down and not her coming to ask if we needed anything. Still a wonderful dinner with out of town family but better service would have made it a more enjoyable throughout the whole dinner.

    The hostess was kind and gave us a quiet table by the window. We were there until after dark and the view alone is worth going for!! The food was very good, although the Kobe burger was actually too big. I had to take it apart in order to eat it - there was no way I could get it in my mouth. The fries were excellent. My husband had the Caesar salad with anchovies and he was delighted to see so many of those little fish. He said they were delicious. We skipped dessert because we were all too full.

    We have had some fair experiences with Saltys in the past, but this time the food left us underwhelmed. Not poor, but nothing to write home about. We had a reservation for 6:15. We were sat at 6:45. We were first greeted after being sat about 8 minutes later, so we put in our food and drink orders immediately. Our entrees came about 35 minutes later. Granted, it was fairly busy. Views of downtown and water here are always nice.

  • Brunch is not good for large groups
    Seattlelocal
    Dined on 10/5/2014
    We went to Salty's for the Sunday brunch with a group of 11 people. We received a phone call from Salty's about an hour before we arrived informing us that large groups are required to sit downstairs in the Alki room, rather than in the dining room where the buffet is located. This means everyone in our party had to climb up and down a flight of stairs to reach the buffet. One of the kids in our group dropped a plate full of food on the stairs and my 78 year old father was not able to go up and down. The Alki room feels like a basement and is not nearly as pleasant as the dining room upstairs. Not worth $49/person.; we did not have the same experience as those in the dining room. Food was fine but notable only due to sheer volume.

    As usual, the food was very good and lines were not as long. I love the display of food and beverages in the waiting room (what a great addition!) Although my friend who had allergies did not make it, I love that Salty's received the update and was mindful of it. Our waiter was very chipper and detailed ALL the information about Salty's specials and dining experience for the newbies, but he did say a bit more than we liked and it really cut a little into our dining time. We would recommend waiters/waitresses to say the minimum since customers are requested to keep within the 1.5 hr dining time. Otherwise, the dining experience was fantastic and food was delicious.

    We went to Salty's for brunch when my mother-in-law was in town and it was fantastic! We were seated at a table right by the window overlooking the water (which were the best seats in the house - unless you are outside :) ). They had something for everyone's taste - delicious seafood with all the accoutrements, awesome prime rib, made-to-order omelets, crepes, and pasta, and even a chocolate fondue fountain! There were many things in addition to this that were wonderful as well. It's a little pricey for brunch, which is the only thing keeping me from coming back every weekend. But, it is well worth the visit!
