We have been to Salty’s for many special occasions & are never disappointed. It is also where we love to bring out of town visitors to show off our beautiful Pacific Northwest!

I didn't think it was possible, but Salty's has become even better since the pandemic! Our meal was absolutely wonderful! One person in our party has an allergy, and our waiter was amazing--he worked with the chef/kitchen and went back and forth several times to ensure the entree chosen would work. I ordered a drink that sounded great but didn't hit my taste buds right, and the waiter offered to have it remade at no charge; I was thrilled! I had the paella, which was chock-full of seafood in a not-too spicy tomato broth, and a generous portion! My husband had 'simply grilled' halibut (he liked that over the special prep, which sounded good, but...it's fresh halibut, so let it shine), which he loved! It was a birthday, so the waiter brought a piece of their signature white cake with cloudlike buttercream and raspberry coulis without even being asked! We swore we couldn't eat another bite after finishing our entrees, but...somehow we managed. Thank you for a delightful evening!! Highly, HIGHLY recommend Salty's!!!!

Carl was a kind and helpful waiter. Attentive and personable!! Food was great! View from our table couldn’t have been better!

Carly at the front reception was warm and helpful both in person and on the phone. She set aside a lovely table for us as our son had just arrived in Seattle to begin chemo.

Surprisingly delightful experience in the outdoor tent, in a rainstorm. Food was extraordinary (xtra tart Key Lime Pie — yay!) The service was very good, but do work on keeping it a bit more unobtrusive and “invisible”.

We had such a great time at Saltys! The food was amazing and the service outstanding. Also, we received a free slice of their homemade cake for my partner's birthday celebration. It is 10/10 recommended.

Victor was a very pleasant and attentive waiter. We were very pleased with the extra steps taken to help us celebrate our anniversaries. We found the meal very tasty and a very good value. The view was also very much enjoyed by our out of town guests (who were also on their honeymoon) and the outdoor seating area protected us very well from the chill and rain that came before we finished our meal.

Beautiful ambiance. Food was delicious, server was knowledgeable and confident. No excessive waits for food, but did not rapidly take/bring our orders so as not to make us feel rushed. Would definitely go back.

Delicious food. The lobster bucatini was delicious and so was the mixed seafood plate. Service was amazing, Tiffany was our waitress and recommended the two dishes we ordered and the bread appetizer. She knew the menu very well. The view was the cherry on top. A must stop for anyone who goes to Seattle. And get the oysters!

Another great experience at Salty’s! My family was visiting Seattle for the first time and I wanted to dazzle them with good seafood and good views. They were very impressed. Our waitress was excellent too and let me order the pasta without clams (since I am not a seafood person).

We sat outside under a clear plastic tent that protected us from a downpour (this is Seattle right?) and later presented a perfect view of the city when the skies cleared. Ta-da! Delicious and well-cooked fish and seafood pasta dishes were well worth the longer drive from the city. The waitstaff were excellent.

Every time I go here I am not disappointed! It doesn't matter what you order but if you so happen to order that 14 oz lobster tail, make sure you order the feast! And try the cream sherry in your clam chowder, you will not be disappointed!

Tracy was our server. She was so great. You guys decorated the table for our 9 year old’s birthday and he was so excited. He said the complimentary cake we took home was the best cake he’s ever had. Now they’re asking for crab legs and shrimp every day. We will be back. Older son says it was the best meal EVER.
