Great views, great service, but food was decent. Had Dungeness crab, gave small portion. Korean wings and waffle was great. Clam chowder was great.

We live in the neighborhood and have celebrated many life milestones at Salty's and I have to say we are missing the pre-pandemic menu. We can understand no brunch for now (I guess) but even the regular menu was chopped down and I would say it has become less of a family venue based on the current offerings. We hope they will bring back more items and have more variety in the future so we can come back more often. Still the best white cake though to celebrate birthdays with.

The restaurant was very festive with various life-size nutcrackers placed all throughout and around. We were delighted to be seated facing large windows toward the city. Our waiter, "Brian" did a great job helping us feel comfortable and attended to, without bothering us. The seafood was very fresh and delicious. We recommend the Alki Trio appetizer, which has a crab cake that is sweet and buttery. With top notch desserts to complete a lovely experience, we are sure to return again soon. Thank you for a lovely time!

I ordered the fish and chips. Terrible taste for the fish and the fries were oily and cold. My wife ordered the Lobster and Shrimp combo. The taste and texture of the lobster was very poor and the quantity was low.

The team at Salty’s did a lot to make my mom’s birthday celebration with her kids very special. Everyone we interacted knew we were celebrating and wished her a happy birthday and played along with her claim to turning 18 :P

My brother asked to move tables to be closer to the city view and they moved us without hesitation, although I felt bad for the server who lost us from our section.

Food was really good, I only reserve 5 stars for experiences that really amaze and shock me, so a 4 is a very solid rating from me.

I’ve eaten there before the food is consistently good. I had the salmon he asked if medium rare was OK asked him to do medium it was a little on the Ross side for me. And it was a $45 dish so I was a little disappointed. The dessert was amazing everyone else really liked their food. It’s after Christmas and it was still massive loud Christmas carols which was a little much. Of course they have a brilliant view.

Salty's has a great view of Seattle. It's a great place for an intimate dinner on quieter evenings' and a great place to take the family. I had the lamb chops and they were great - I did swap out the risotto for whipped potatoes, but that's just a personal preference. Bottom line good eats, but be ready to spend a bit.

Great ambience by the waterfront. Very courteous service.
Loved the food, especially the prawns and lobster bucatini. Should try the manga habanero margarita.
As we were celebrating our anniversary, they served a white chocolate mousse cake on the house for dessert.
