    Did brunch on Sunday and as one always does, ate too much. But the food was uniformly good. I probably will not return for this event for two reasons. It's tooooo noisy/busy/crowded. Also way way way too expensive. It is a very extensive brunch but really folks...$200 for 3 people? and we didn't even have any alcohol.

    Somewhere to the side of us was rather heavy rock music and on the other side was live, ambient piano music - it not allow for a relaxing start. Our table was also in a thoroughfare which meant getting constantly bumped by people walking by. The staff put in a good effort to be cheerful.

    The waiter seemed to be preoccupied; the wrong appetizers arrived at out table, and the wrong main course for my wife. Service was quite slow. The grand finale was getting our check, which was overbilled by $50 due to the wrong items being on there. We are cured from Salty's for awhile.

    Very disappointing dining experience while trying to showcase the Restaurant to out-of-town visitors. If that was the Chef's showcase menu for Seattle Food Week, can only imagine what the rest of their menu was like. While a great view can typically over-compensate for moderate quality food or service, in this case the food (from the appetizers, to the entrees, to the desert) was so unappealing & tasteless it does not garner a higher rating.

    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.

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.
