    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!

    Always a pleasure to have brunch at Salty's on Alki. The service is outstanding from the map of the brunch to the attentive waiters. Much appreciated is the pre-brunch waiting area with fresh scones and beverages. There is something for everyone in your family from cold, hot, made-to-order, seafood, non-seafood, ...you name it! Your stomach doesn't have room for everything. Great small touches abound, like the tray of freshly made donuts when you arrive. Wonderful.

    We brought my Mother-In-Law here for her 80th birthday and as usual Salty's did not disappoint. She loves oysters and having an unlimited amount available on a brunch was sheer heaven for her. I'm not sure that anyone is capable of trying everything available on their brunch and if one were brave enough to attempt it then they better be wearing something with an expandable waistband. We spent 2 blissful hours grazing our way through the vast array of seafood, egg dishes, and desserts without having room to sample the pasta station or many other scrumptious delicacies. If you want to ever spoil someone and have a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline as a bonus there's no better place to come than Salty's.

    I love Saltys, we had family here from out of state. They had never been to Seattle before and this was the highlight of the trip. There is no better place to go for brunch and show off the beautiful view of the City. The food was wonderful, as always. The service was excellent, the wait staff is so attentive. We had planned this outing for them for a month in advance and it we were all excited to go to Saltys. It did not disappoint, their faces were priceless as they walked around the restaurant to check out all the choices before eating. Saltys uses top-notch ingredients and it shows in the quality and selection of the food. There is no better brunch location any where in the region better than Saltys.

He had lobster and I had chicken, I can honestly say it is one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. We are sure to be back soon. Oh! And I can't forget to mention our waiter Sean. He was AWESOME. So fun and very accommodating.

    This is our "go to" place for special occasions but I must admit that I feel the quality of the food goes down with each visit. The homemade omelet was WONDERFUL (enjoyed talking with the gentlemen making them, too), the crab was fresh, and the fondue was fun to dip things in. The hot entrees either did not look appetizing or were not very good, the fruit was so-so (admittedly, this is not the best time for fresh fruit), and we cannot eat gluten which greatly reduces our options. The beef and ham are great, I am sure the crepes and waffles (fresh made) are awesome. Overall, a favorite place has gone down the list in our opinion.

    The beef looked great and was TOUGH AS CARDBOARD, sharp knife barely able to cut it. Oysters were very cute (little bitty)and nice. Bacon super. Not enough cold poached salmon. Ham excellent. Eggs Benedict great. Oysters Rockefeller would have been nice. Pasta good. Self serve orange juice, tomato juice, etc. would be a good idea. Omelets nice and chef very friendly/inviting.

    Our dinner party experience overall was excellent. We were a mixed adult/small child group which the wait staff accommodated expertly. We appreciated our prime window-seat location at the northeast corner of the room. The view of early-evening Seattle/Elliot Bay was gorgeous. The restaurant was busy as usual, but service delays were not noticeable. The appetizers and entrees arrived hot and nicely presented. Noise level was rather high at times, but did not detract from the enjoyment of the evening. I am not a regular at the restaurant, but every meal I've had at Salty's over the years has been exceptional. I'll be back.

    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.
