    We decided to try the three-course dinner for Seattle Restaurant Week, but even after 15 years, the food didn't improve. Apart from the location and view, everything else, including the service and food quality, was subpar—more like a two-star experience or less. Hate to admit it, but even the kids' meals (fish & chips and grilled salmon) tasted better than ours! Disappointing to say the least.

    View- truly to die for! Server- (Dane) could bring back the expression, “cool cat”! The server was unbelievable and beyond stupendous; very attentive! Food- kiss your fingers and throw them to the air good! It was a little hard to hear the server and even my husband who was across from me, and there was an overpowering smell of flowers and I have the worst allergies in the world. Essentially, I am allergic to the planet, so it did bother me to have so many fresh flowers around, but I could have said, Dane, may these couple flowers (by me) move?” But I did not so that, as the kids say, is “My bad.”

    My husband remembered eating at Salty’s years ago when on business in Seattle and thought we might like to host our friend celebrating a birthday who we were meeting Seattle for the extended weekend. Being that all of us are visitors to the city we thought just taking the water taxi to the restaurant was a different experience than what we have at home. The restaurant is outstanding, the room, the view, the service and the food, all exceeded my expectations, wonderful, they treated the birthday boy to birthday cake and decorated the table, made us feel so welcome. Top Notch, Thank you!

So much flavor. The best clam chowder ever. Son, had the Salmon dinner, amazing flavor he said. Ended with an expresso martini for dessert. The Seattle skyline was Beautiful!!! A big shout out to Chef, hostess, bar staff/ waitress, dinner staff and people bussing the tables. Amazed on how the systems in place are when clearing a used dinner table. So, efficient. A+++

    Our reservation was for 7:00 and we got seated at 7:35. It was Seattle Restaurant Week and they allowed too many reservations; they were swamped. Our table was nice with a good view, but there were many better tables. It was very noisy. The waitress was very friendly, managing to overcome our annoyance with the wait. Her service was excellent. The food was fair to good.

    Excellent Food with Great Views. We had not been back to Salty's since before the pandemic and were thrilled that it is still great. Service was good, We happened to be there on a Thursday during Seattle's "Restaurant Week" with fixed prices for certain meals. I had the beef and prawns that was great. Due to allergies I could not eat any of the desserts that were pre-chosen so the server suggested I have two salad/soup entrees and that is exactly what I did. Chowder is fabulous as always. And the garlic sourdough bread is too good to be true!
