Job well done.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food & serviceAmbiance is wonderful, staff is friendly and helpful and the view is relaxing. Service is excellent. All needs are anticipated. The Blackened Salmon Caesar Salad is delicious. The Salmon Cobb salmon is also excellent. Our expectations were exceeded, when a birthday cake appeared without bringing up the subject other than in passing conversation, as well as a second cake, just because Mothers' Day was also not far away. This made for a very special occasion for both Mother and Daughter.

The Sunday brunch was fantastic. They had a wide range of menu items and lots of seafood such as shrimp, salted fish, and crab legs. We had the option for mimosa's, which were very yummy. They have a chocolate fountain for the dessert bar. I even noticed a small kid friendly buffet table. Our server was polite and made herself easily available even though they were busy. Making reservations is a smart idea, we had not wait!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWarn spring sunset on the patioGreat food and a wonderful sunset illuminating the sails plying the river.

Right on the Columbia River, giving it a romantic, peaceful, charming setting. Dinner was awesome. Everything was very fresh and made to order. Super flavorful! There were large groups and small groups of people dining. The only thing is that it's very pricy. But worth it for a special occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrive with empty stomachWe arrive with empty stomach and order appetizer right after be seated. Food choice are plentiful and taste good. The appetizers came quickly as we request with very good quality or seafood. We then order a salmon fish and Seafood Paella, and both taste good. However the resorto came with the salmon is too rich for our taste. First few bite are great but too much after. The Paella is near perfect and reasonable size for one person. Overall this restaurant is great for seafood lovers. Definitely recommend it and will go back again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMChowder with Sherry is toChowder with Sherry is to die for!

Our server was wonderful, friendly, accommodating, and even at the end of dinner when we were already about to get in our van, she came all the way out in the parking lot to hand me my earrings that I left on the table. The food was spectacular, we had the 2 lb. Maine lobster, Ocean Trio and Clam Chowder soup. The view on the water was beautiful, and I even got a delicious white chocolate piece of cake for dessert for my birthday. We will definitely return, hopefully soon!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's always a treat to goIt's always a treat to go to Salty's.

Julia called to review the online reservation for any special requests or needs and was our welcomer when we arrived for our birthday celebration. Cocktails, multiple h'ors doeuvres, fine bottle of pinot noir, clam chowder, steelhead, filet mignon, lobster tails, desert all around and after dinner wine - all prepared and served perfectly. Jake, our server, was truly ideal - attentive, accomodating, warm, yet unobtrusive. The expansive river view at sunset simply enhanced a lovely dinner for all. I have my favorites in New York, D.C., San Francisco and Chicago; Salty's is among the finest in the Pacific Northwest.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter experience this timeBetter experience this time than my last trip. Was still disappointed that my request for a window seat was not granted. It was my wifes birthday and I would have like for the family to set by the window with a great view. Instead we were sat by the fireplace. Yes we did have a view of the river but it would have been nice for my request to have been honored. Not sure why both times I booked on Open Table and I had written request and they were not honored. Just a little disappointing. Food was very good and the waitress was very nice.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was the best we'veBrunch was the best we've had in all of Portland and I doubt there is anyplace better.
