    We went her for my daughter's bday dinner, I know it is not a place known for cheeseburgers but she ordered one and it was not good. Much too big of a burger and the bun completely fell apart. My cod/prawn dish was just so-so. The only good things were the clam chowder and of course, the white chocolate mousse cake is excellent. Great view, friendly staff but I feel the food has taken a bad turn and the prices an up turn since we were there last. Sadly, I don't think we will return.

    Food was mediocre at best. The fish was overcooked and dried out. Lemon peel in the Caesar salad was bitter and made the salad nearly inedible. Too many spices made the meal a total washout from our perspective. Wouldn't recommend for the price.

    Incredible view of downtown Seattle. Great location with an unusal menu - halibut and fire cracker shrimp well done. Caesar Salad mediocre. Service with Terin - great. The restaurant manager is amazing and exudes customer service. Both warm greeting entering and leaving the restaurant. Baked Alaska - to die for and truly one of the best desserts I've ever had. Job well done...

    My last three meals have been poor to mediocre. The ambience is good, the view terrific, the service good, but the food has been on the decline for several years. A couple years ago I had the dinner special. The scallops didn't taste very good, but much worse, they weren't properly cleaned. The next meal was ok. The last lunch my friend and I both thought our different meals were just passable.

    We celebrated my wife's birthday at Salty's. Nothing could have been better. Four of us all enjoyed an excellent appitizer, each couple split a delicious salad and we all raved about the entrees. Service was superb. And we found a perfect wine to complement the seafood. The celebration was a smashing success.

    My husband an I had an amazing brunch here. The service was exactly how it should be AMAZING! !! They are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, right down to a blanket if your cold. Ive never experienced such fine dinning and impaecable service at the same time. Unfortunatly most the time its fine dinning, the service isnt very good. Or if the service rocks the food sucks. At Salty's its fast, friendly, great food, relaxing environment and your treated like royalty. I highly recommend Salty's and cant wait till the next time we are able to go again. My husband and I dont get out often because we have small children and as everyone knows life revoles around them. :)

    The Salty's Sunday (and Saturday) Brunch truly is legendary! I literally didn't eat for a day after it. So many options and not enough space in my stomach! Will definitely have to go back. Crab legs were succulent, chocolate fountain was great. The only thing they could have improved on was the crepes, would have been much better if they were made with fresh fruit.

    THe staff were very nice and accomodating of my family and our 1 month old baby (with all the gear a baby entails). We had a small seating snafu, which was fixed quickly and then followed up with an on the house appetizer plate (very nice gesture that was appreciated). The food itself was very good, if a little pricey (you pay for the view).

    We had family guests visiting from California who were used to fine dinning and water front views. We were proud to share our local dinning experience with them. It has been many years since we had been to Salty's and it was a gift card from a friend that brought us back. Our family was not only impressed with the view of Seattle but also the food which was absolutely delicious. Hope to come back soon and try dishes other family members ate. The server was not only polite but returned now and then, not enough as to be bothersome. The bus boy was adorable as he tried many ways to get a nice picture of our 7 group sitting. On the way out we were greeted with smiles and thank yous as we complemented the cooks in the kitchen. Thank you

    Had to wait 30 minutes to be seated and were directed to the noisy cramped bar where others like ourselves were waiting for their tables. They obviously overbook. All this is overcome by the incredible panoramic views of downtown Seattle and the harbor. The food and service were exceptional . Salty's is a definite "Go TO" place when in Seattle area.

    I made a reservation a couple of weeks or more before my wedding anniversary. I asked for a window table and noted it was for my anniversary. Did it make a difference no! I received an email a couple of days before our reservation and it stated it was first come first serve for a widow table. So we got there 20 minutes early that didn't help. The food was good over priced but I knew that. Disappointed reservations mean zippo.

    The complimentary valet parking offers a nice start to the dining experience. The food and drinks were very good, and I appreciated our server's help in answering my questions about gluten-free options. The service was in general very good--prompt, friendly, and helpful without being intrusive. We had a long wait for our meal because a large group placed their orders just before we did, but the server was great about keeping us updated, and we didn't mind the wait too much since we were able to enjoy that outstanding view.

    Took a very good friend of mine to dinner on Sept. 7th. Weather was absolutely perfect. Utilized valet parking and we arrived about 45 minutes prior to our reservation. Hostess asked us if we wanted to be seated early and said yes. Seated by a window out to the Sound although almost any seat has a good view. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. Food was very good as well. There wasn't a bad part to the entire evening.

    The view is outstanding! the food was mediocre at best. the risotto with my salmon was so cold that I believe they got it out of the fridge and then put my nicely cooked salmon on top of it. Not good. Appetizers were basically bar food quality. I would go there again for the view, but would choose the inexpensive items and expect Red Robin-ish quality and then would not be disappointed.

    Avoided the "cooked" foods. Made a feast of oysters on the half shell (plump and wonderful), Dungeness crab leg/claws, mussels and clams. Really excellent, even if it does cost $19 for two to get there and back by water taxi. I guess with dinner you get a free dessert with your receipt, but with brunch buffet, nothing.

    My family went to Salty's for the weekend buffet brunch. For a buffet, it was quite extensive from seafood to breakfast items and desserts. But at $50 a person, it was very expensive. At this price, we could have had really great food somewhere else. This was a special occasion for my daughter who wanted to go. Check it off the list!

    We were celebrating getting our marriage license. Even though their website states that window seats are given on a first-come basis, they still gave us the best seat in the house, right in the corner with a full glass view out to the water. They also surprised us with a free dessert to celebrate with us. I could see us going back to Salty's every year for our anniversary now, since they've made our little afternoon date following the court house, such a special day.

    It is "just" our neighborhood spot but always a great choice to take out of town friends as the view is spectacular. The service is always terrific and I have yet to have a meal that wasn't stupendous. Our waiter was especially charming and we had the Flaming Baked Alaska for a theatrical dessert finale.

    We weren't expecting avant garde food here - we were expecting a great spot with a great view to celebrate a birthday AND be able to drag little kids along. Success on all fronts. Truth is, the food is quite good, in a traditional way. That's not a knock - it's reassuring to know you can get well-seared tuna or perfectly decadent calamari and not have to worry about fighting with the Capitol Hill crowd at the newest ampersand-separated restaurant. It's pricey, but the service is efficient (they knew the Open Table notes) and friendly, the vibe is celebratory, and the food doesn't disappoint, if you know what you're in for. Crab-stuffed salmon topped with lobster for $60? Yes. Cosmopolitans on special? Sure.

They took photos all through dinner. My friends also had diet requests and Salty's had no problem making any changes to the dishes. They were very accommodating.

    My husband and I, along with our son and his wife were celebrating our wedding anniversaries. My husband and I were from out of town and had not dined at Salty's for several years. We enjoyed the beautiful view and excellent seafood dinners. The wine list was a little disappointing and we had to return some glasses and a plate that were dirty - perhaps the dishwasher was having a bad day. The wait staff were friendly and engaging. Thank you for a nice evening!

    Nothing compares to Salt's brunch! My husband and I love a good brunch and there is just nothing that compares in the variety and quality of foods offered at Salty's weekend brunch! We have been to more expensive brunches, expecting the overall experience to stand up to the price you're paying, but no such luck. I should just stop looking for anything that can top Salty's. I'm convinced there is not anything else out there that will exceed the bar set by Salty's. By the way, our server was awesome! Bummed, I didn't catch his name. Personable, funny and enjoyable.

    My wife had King crab legs and they were way to salty. The server brought lemons to cut the salt, but it wasn't enough. Its like they left them in a brine tank. I had the salmon special which was decent but the accompanying potatoes and tomatoes were cooked in ash. If I wanted to taste an ash tray I would have brought my own. The best part of the meal were the pricey oysters. Expensive but delicious. The server did well, but overall way too much money for the quality of the food.
