    Our server and bus person were phenomenal. I don’t usually like fish but the rest of the party does. I decided to go for it and skip the red meat and have fish. I had the halibut special and my mouth is watering just thinking of it. Everyone from the hostess on were all about service!! We will definitely be back!!!

    The Copper river salmon was $80 for a small piece of salmon. That is way too expensive for what it was but we treated our guest who ordered it as she was not from Seattle. Also it was so cold by our window, I had to ask to turn down the air conditioning which they did after the second request which was much more comfortable.

    Excellent professional service who steered us just right. Food was beautifully prepared from salads to copper river salmon. View of course stunning. BUT the room really needs a makeover. It’s stuck in the 80s and is borderline tacky.

    Salty’s used to be an experience, a good one. It is so overpriced and overrated, I would not be going back. Wish I didn’t go and spent that much money. They charged $120 a person, the food was half of what it used to be, mostly desserts. They had one kind of crab- Dungeness. No snow crab, no king crab, one kind of oysters.

    Always loving going to Salty’s for brunch. It has been a tradition in our family for over 35 years. Chad and Chrissy are always warm and welcoming - it feels like a reunion when we arrive. Food is delicious, staff are professional and kind. So glad they made it thru the pandemic.

    We had an incredible meal with an unmatched view of the Seattle skyline. We asked our server Dane, if he would recommend a wine for us. Instead of picking out a $200 bottle, he shared a $60 bottle that he really liked from a Washington winery that he had visited and tasted at. The wine was excellent, and not being upsold left us with a very favorable impression. If you love a great meal, and attentive service, Salty's is totally on point.

    Both halibut specials were truly outstanding. Bucatini sauce was a little heavy for the prawns and scallops. Coconut prawn appetizers were great. Key lime tart was a bit too sweet; three of us shared and could not finish it. The views were spectacular, as was the service.

    We ordered the Trio appetizer plate!! No where on description did it say sesame seeds were sprinkled all over it. I have a food allergy and if I didn’t see it, I would have ended up in the ER. You need to be better and list that, sesame is like peanuts, a lot of people are allergic to it.

    Salty’s on Alki is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. The views are breathtaking, service top notch, and the food is always amazing. The only thing I don’t understand is the extra 4 percent added to the bill that goes to the restaurant on top of the tip.

    First, I had reservation and my friends were already seated. When I reached to the front, host told me I don't have reservation on 12:30. She kept saying it's okay, but she couldn't find the reservation. When my friends told someone, she or he found it and let them sit. But, I always like the Salt so overall I enjoyed. Calamari was excellent.
