I was visiting Seattle from California and we ate here last time I was in town. It was a MUST do for a special dinner out. Once again, Salty’s exceeded our expectations. THe food was outstanding, our table view was magic and Brian our server was incredible. Thank you again for our favorite place for a special dinner. We will be back!

I walked in and immediately greeted. They asked who’s birthday it was, I let them know that it was my mother’s. They brought me to the table. The server was attentive. She stated on top of it.

It was our first time there, and we were expecting the 'brunch buffet' and did not realize it was not happening.

The server was great. The main meal was excellent, the breakfast was not what I expected, but was okay.

Will definitely go back, and order different things, as it was great in every regard, and my one minimal issue with my food (probably my taste) will not keep us away.

Service was good. They ran out of the special an hour before close. I ordered blackened caesar salmon salad. The salmon was raw in the center. The waiter said that the chef cooks salmon medium rare. Is this a real thing with blackened fish?

I needed a place to get some natural light and water views on a rainy Sunday. Scenery that differed from my living room (AKA office and my son’s classroom) was desperately needed. I dined blissfully solo with impeccable service and a very generous invitation to stay awhile. So following my perfect salmon salad lunch and Treasure Cove oysters, I did. The tea was constantly refreshed and I felt very welcome. I left feeling rejuvenated and touched by the kindness of my server. It was a perfect experience.

Tarp tent that we sat in outside took away from the view and the people we were seated next to all were getting off of their shift or meeting up with the cooks there and were pretty rambunctious drinking and talking loudly. They were celebrating someone's birthday but the atmosphere felt more like a bar than fine dining. Our waiter Dane was fantastic though.

My wife’s fish was slightly over cooked it it was nice that I was able to customize my meal to make it dairy free and gluten free. The steak I ordered, was a special black pepper corn crusted, I do not have the pleasure to have some of the black pepper. Overload of Gorgonzola cheese yes, the chef did a cut in the middle of the steak to ensure it was cook medium. Chef without experience maybe training? One side it was perfectly seared and the bottom part it was like boiled meat. I’ll give 3 stars to the food overall.
