Found this year the food was mediocre. The ham overcooked,lamb dry. The crab legs didn't have meat, salads not much the lettuce was swimming in mayonaise. Desserts, bad. Outrageously priced for what we get.

It was my first visit to Salty’s and I was excited about. Food was really delicious with a great service. And they obviously have a great view of Seattle skyline.

The appetizer was Salty’s trio, which was very expensive, the calamari part of it was mostly tentacles and ice cold. Very disappointed. The lobster tail was good but the bed of risotto it was sitting on was cold and 2 burned asparagus stems. I didn’t really like our seats either. Once again just because there was only two of us, they stuck us in a corner by the waitress station... not nice for a restaurant known for its view. I was a birthday dinner, and I had to ask if they did anything special to the waitress, she knew full on they did, but didn’t offer until I asked... for the the very expensive price of this place, I was very disappointed and would not recommend or go back again!

I would like juice to be included in the price, even if that means the price is more. One of my guests asked what kind of juice was available and when the server said that would be an extra charge, my guest said he would stick with water. Your weekend brunches are a wonderful treat and I enjoy bringing guests but I don't want them to think about the cost. Juice is included in the price at other brunches.

I've already recommended Salty's Brunch Buffet to many people. It's a little too spendy to regularly visit for most, but EVERYONE should experience it at least once.

I was married at Salty's two years ago and have been returning each Anniversary. I let them know the occasion when making my reservation on Open Table and Salty's had reserved us a corner table with windows on each side for a wonderful view. They even had rose petals on the table for us and a card.

Everything about this place is great, with the exception of the Brunch prices. If you want to go there and eat crab and oysters, it's a good value. But if people in your party are not seafood fans and only eat a waffle and some fruit.......you'd be better off going somewhere that allows you to order off the menu.

Server service was good. Hostess service was poor. Food was good, but nothing special (good cook, but not a chef quality). Food quantity was small relative to the price.

Extremely expensive, I knew it was going in, but the tab still shocked me, 3 adults and one child came to $260 after tax and tip, it’s great for a buffet but still issues with over crowded line areas, a lot of the food was luke warm, by the time I sat down most of my “hot” food was cold. Best part was definitely the Habanero Bloody Mary and the scones, great service, ok food, not worth the money.

Took my niece to celebrate her acceptance into many prestigious colleges. We have been eating Salty’s brunch for years. We were seated down at the bottom with a view but it was noisy enough that we could barely talk and it was very cold (temperature wise). Breakfast started out nice with fresh donuts. The mini waffles were amazing and the women serving them was delightful. The blueberry ones were so good. The bacon was a little soggy but the hash browns were very good. A lot of food options but I found the salads and the pastas to tasteless and really just not good. The actual pasta bar is much better. The desserts were such a let down. Nothing seemed fresh, almost store bought. The strawberries on the dessert bar were big but never full. I went up three times and the bowl was empty. The strawberries are our favorite part. When we finally got a few strawberries the chocolate was awful. It’s usually such a treat, but this was way to thin. So thin very little flavor. We talked about those strawberries days before our brunch so it was a letdown. Our server was nice and we had what we needed. For $200 for two people I would have expected a much more dazzling experience and certainly expected to be wowed. I don’t know that I would return at this point. It has always been a favorite of ours and I’m sad to think of how great it used to be.

$63 for brunch. Either the price when up or the quality went down or both.
I remember that I used to really like coming here. But now it was close to $300 for a family of 4 and the food just wasn't worth it.

Maybe the best views in Seattle, as you get a 180 degree gaze at the Seattle skyline, along with all the maritime traffic that goes by. Food is delectable, although the salmon steak wasn't quite as hot as my wife would have preferred. My crab-filled steelhead was perfect. We both enjoyed sharing an excellent caesar salad. The Fog Prince Pinot Noir was enjoyable and reasonably priced. Since we noted the celebration of a birthday when making reservations, we were greeted by rose petals at our window table and a generous and yummy slice of birthday cake for dessert. The coffee liqueur we ordered after dinner was a great way to extend our evening as we enjoyed our view of the downtown lights after dark. It was a special night out, albeit at "special" prices. But worth it.

The food was as good as advertised, not to mention the variety. It isn't for most of us on a regular basis, but it is absolutely worth it for special occasions. Bonus Tip, skip the carbs & go with the prime rib & Crab options to maximize the deal you get!

Cocktails in the bar were outstanding and service was excellent! Wish I could say the same for the dining room . The food was very very good . Our server seemed to have some sort of chip on his shoulder, especially towards one of our diners in particular, unfortunately he was the host paying the bill . There was quite a lag from when we were greeted at the table to when we were asked if we would like to order appetizers. The host joked he thought our server forgot about us and that was it , our server from there on out didn’t seem to thrilled with our table. I would have expected less attitude from such a small comment. His salad came out a mess , somehow the pepper got all over the table and not as much on the salad and the server seemed to give him a hard time about what he was ordering. Honestly I was a little embarrassed since I suggested the restaurant. I have always had great service at Salty’s so I hope this was an off night.

Salty's is an event - a place for a celebration, with it's great view an outstanding service. Ours was a birthday and Salty's didn't disappoint. The fish dishes were good, but for those prices, lacked imagination. And we'll probably find ourselves back there again the next time a birthday needs to be recognized in a special way.
