Diner Reviews
  • "we went to the Spinnaker for a special occasion. the place has become very dated and it feels like they unload tour busses of tourists out front. we had to wait 30 minutes for our table and there was an odd smell. the food was OK. the view was incredible but there are other places in Sausalito with much better food and service in my opinion. not going back."

  • "My wife had a meeting in Sausalito, so we scheduled an early dinner here last week. I don't really understand the criticisms of this place. It is not priced any higher than most restaurants in the area and the food (especially the fish dishes) are tasty and of high quality. Along with a million dollar view and attentive wait staff, the Spinnaker has always been a fine experience. C'mon...people won't go here because the place has outdated decor? I come here to eat and enjoy the view. We probably visit two to four times a year and while no place is perfect, we always have a wonderful experience. Valet parking is a bonus."

  • "Always a wonderful dining experience at The Spinnaker! The service is impeccable, the food delicious and the view is breath-taking. Enjoying a delicious meal while watching San Francisco transition from day to night makes any occasion that much more special. The Caesar salad is the best in the world and the tiaramisu cannot be matched."

  • "This restaurant has an amazing view of San Francisco and the food is reasonably priced."

  • "We were lucky and got the best seat in the house on the corner. We could see the top of the Golden Gate and all of the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, etc. There were a lot of boats, kayaking and the scenery was very coastal and enjoyable. The food was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "It's a good place to take out of town guests to - as long as they are not expecting first rate food to match the stunning scenery. Probably better as a brunch or lunch place. The view is the reason to go, not the food. In fact, it might be a better place to go for pre-dinner drinks and then go to a better restaurant for the meal. Service was good, considering the crowd. Food was so-so and definitely overpriced, though again, it's the view I was paying for... The bathroom was unspeakably nasty. Smelled like urine and was shabby and unattended."

  • "Spinnaker is a solid restaurant with a consistant level of quality. The view is really what make the restaurant but the offering and good service makes it work. The only issue I had is with the floor manager, it is not comfortable to have him standing crossing his arms watching people work, any good manager works to help the customer experience, not as an overseer."

  • "We went for lunch for my fathers 85th birthday. The food was amazing. I had the special of the day....ahi tuna over cheese tortalini with a very very good heirloom tomato sauce. It was very good. My dad had a wonderful seafood salad and my husband had the petrale sole. We love this place. Six years ago we hosted our daughters wedding reception here and the food was amazingly delicious. I thought perhaps the quality would suffer with 160 guests...but NO...it was awesome. I highly recommend the Spinnaker and will most certainly be back!"

  • "I have been quite a few times recently and this time was a bit disappointing. Waited 15 mins at the table before the server came over. Then ordered wine and appetizers the wine came after about 5 mins and another 10 for the appetizers. About 20 mins after we had finished our appetizers the waiter finally came back to take our dinner order so we had to wait for the food to be prepared while we sat there with nothing. Food is normally great, this time it was all overcooked."

  • "I have dined at The Spinnaker many times for both lunch and dinner. The food is consistently good and the service beyond professional. I've seen groups from about 10-15 there. Well behaved kids are welcome.. .no toddlers running around. The location is fabulous--ferries, sail boats, seabirds and seals."

  • "I booked this restaurant for lunch asking for a window table with a view. We were seated immediately. Food was delicious. Our waiter was patient in answering her questions about the crab. She had a Crab Louie and I had the Halibut Saute with havarti cheese. Halibut was cooked to perfection and served with perfectly hot steamed vegetables and rice. Both meals were beautifully presented with the ever outstanding San Fransico sour dough bread. The Spinnaker did not disappoint for this very special reunion. It was busy but we were never made to feel rushed. My East Coast cousin was very impressed. Using "OPEN TABLE" was most helpful and made this an easy choice for me to meet my cousin in Sausalito."

  • "This is a classic, no frills, very good seafood restaurant. There is nothing particularly creative about the dishes, but everything is extremely competent and fresh. Never had anything bad...always delicious! And the scenery is outstanding! Very sizable lobster tail served to perfection! Love it!"

  • "A visit to the Spinnaker is worth it for the views alone, but it's great in other ways as well. Had lunch (swordfish special; chicken with champagne, lemon, and capers), which were well prepared and nicely presented. Service was excellent. DO make a reservation, though; every table was taken and there were people waiting."

  • "The Spinnaker is by far one of if not the best restaurants in Marin and I'm not just saying that because I got married there three years ago. The food is absolutely delicious, the views breathtaking from any table and service is always outstanding!! Cannot recommend the Spinnaker more for a special occasion or just a romantic dinner."

  • "We recently hosted a welcome dinner at Spinnaker for a visiting Catholic bishop and we thought we had a "heavenly dining experience" -- from the sweeping panoramic view to the superb food and friendly service Spinnaker provided. We would definitely return and would highly recommend it to our local and visiting friends."

  • "One of our favorite places to bring out-of-town guests and for special occasions with friends and family. This is the first time we were a little disappointed.......specifically with the service staff. It seems that there's a new crew on board, and our server in particular was very difficult to understand; he seemed nervous and we had to repeat ourselves or had him repeat himself So we were somewhat disappointed at the quality of service; but the food was definitely up to par."

  • "This was a lovely place to have lunch. The scenic view was to die for. The host went out of his way to make sure that we had a scenic view. We had a reservation, but he insisted that we wait a while for a table with a view to open up. We had drinks at the bar during our wait. We were so glad that we were given such great service here. We were celebrating our 6th Wedding Anniversary."

We arrived at The Spinnaker during a very busy Saturday lunch period and the Maitre d' had our reservation and it only took a few moments before our table was ready.
