Quiet is good! We will be coming back, definitely.
One small thing: On the reservation page, there was no option for inside dining, although in the event we did dine inside. I realize that this is because of the covid lockdown, but you might revise that choice with "inside dining preferred". And point out that if it's really crowded, folks might need to wait a bit. Yeah, I know, it's tricky. So do what you have to do.

We enjoyed our wedding anniversary there. We mentioned it in general conversation with our waiter and he immediately brought us a treat at the end of our meal. It was a very nice gesture.

Our server Brody was fantastic. Very friendly even though she had several tables all at once in the outside dining area.
She got us everything we wanted in a short period of time.
Food was fantastic and worth the higher price tag.

It was great, I mean the only thing I would be picky about would be that the portion sizes are a lil on the small side, but I’m a big guy so I’m into big portions. Then the waitresses perfume was SO strong, we kept hoping she wouldn’t come back to the table, she was very nice though and the food did taste AMAZING.

The view was unreal, so beautiful to see the sunset reflection off of downtown’s skyline. Go at 5pm, and you won’t be disappointed, if the sun gets through the clouds.

The outdoor heated tents are amazing with a wonderful view. Chrissy was a wonderful server and took my birthday lunch over the top. Absolutely exceeded my expectations. $2 oysters were fresh and delicious and so was the steamed clams. The poke was also a good dish. We loved the oysters so much we had 2 dozen! They even gave us a complimentary cake. So wonderful! 100% recommend making a reservation and going there. Next time we go we need to try their brunch menu, it seems like everyone was ordering from there.

They are doing the best job during Covid with comfortable, pretty, and inviting patio dining. Thank you and kudos on the experience!

Our server Dane was exceptional! I was not in awe of my food which was grilled salmon with fingerling potatoes. My son enjoyed his which was the surf surf and turf. For the price I expected my dish to be amazing and honestly it was average. Other than that the view was great and the outdoor tent was comfortable.

Great experience as always! Our server Dane was absolutely amazing and made our experience better than we could have imagined! The bartender Scott made the best espresso martini I’ve ever had! He was kind enough to deliver a round of drinks to our table so that we could personally thank him for some amazing cocktails!

Three of us went to celebrate a special occasion. The outdoor seating in the tent was nice for COVID times, but the tent blocked the view which defeats the purpose of the elevated prices. Food was good, server was nice and only came by as necessary. The price was outrageous for the quality of the food and they even added on a service charge (not a tip) that the restaurant advertises on their menu does not go to staff. Adding a service fee on top of already high prices was disappointing.

Good food, been coming here for a whole. Covid 19 has messed up quite a bit of the restaurant biz. However Saltys has done a stand up job of making the best that they can out of the situation. The food is still excellent and the service is still great. I recommend this restaurant if you want a great meal.

Wow, we had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere Saltys created -difficult to achieve during the pandemic. Not the normal ‘tent’-We were very comfortable outside, enjoyed the Seattle skyline view with their clear tents, warm with their sophisticated heating system, delicious food and meticulous service!
