    Awesome spot to celebrate a birthday. Made advanced reservations on Open Table, and Salty’s did a phenomenal job celebrating a family member’s birthday with some light decorations and cake at the end. The food was delicious and the views were spectacular. Service was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend this spot for your special occasion. However I did notice they have reasonable specials for dining during weekdays earlier in the week, so those are great options to come back for during more casual outings.

    The seafood chowder was great. Almost as good as their Portland location. The clams were better than in Portland, and the sourdough bread was well worth getting.

    I am going to chock this one up as a bad day for Salty’s. We were early birds at 5 and really nothing went smoothly. I had guests in from NYC and they enjoyed their Bucatini. I had scallops and shrimp, my wife had the salmon special. Both so so…. I have eaten at all of their restaurants multiple times and this was my first disappointment.

    What an amazing view! We were visiting Seattle and love seafood. This was a great choice. The restaurant has a great vibe from the hostess, to the bartenders to the servers and the food was very good and fresh. They even cleared a space for us to sit next to the outdoor fire pit and we had drinks and dessert there. Highly recommend.

    It always helps to have a beautiful evening when you go to Salty's. We were seated outside which I was a bit skeptical at first due to the typical evening breeze but our table right AT the waterside was very protected. The halibut with risotto was amazing, my friend had the King Salmon which was equally as luscious. We both noted our green beans were cold, not sure it that was meant to be that way or not--but they were still crispy good. Getting there from North Seattle was challenging but when the bridge opens back up--it will be way too easy to get there! (more people!) We were not rushed, our Waiter (Dave, I think?) was awesome; we thoroughly enjoyed our evening, truly a wonderful dinner and night out.

    We went for a birthday celebration and appreciated the restaurant recognizing the event without us having made any special arrangement beyond the reservation. It had been many years for us, but we all really enjoyed our meal and the service was also attentive and excellent. Definately worth it and will return.

    Great evening at Salty’s in the dining room with an awesome view of the Seattle waterfront and Elliott Bay. Our halibut dinner was so perfect: the delicate halibut flavor shined and the risotto was rich and creamy. I wish they made a traditional Mai Tai (Vic’s). The prosciutto-wrapped asparagus appetizer was also great.

    RYAN AND THE MANAGER WERE GREAT. MY WIFES BD. We had to Replace the lobster, it was cold and tough. But the next one was fine. We have been going to Salty’s for 40 years and it’s always great. The clam broth eas outstanding and the clams, would like a few more clams if possible. Asianna moved us to a widow. She did a great job and Patrick came over and apologized for the lobster and talked With us. Great friendy man and the extra dessert was super!! Overall great and the view was wonderful. Thanks.

    We recently enjoyed our Anniversary at Salty's on Alki....it had been over 25 years since our last dining experience there. (Mostly due to being out of state and traveling) I had mentioned we were celebrating our Anniversary casually during the reservation process....and had not requested any special accommodations. We were very surprised (once seated) to find rose petals sprinkled on your table....and having our table with an beautiful view of Seattle. The service was exceptional. The food was fantastic and creative. Our Anniversary was truly memorable for my wife and I...and will always stand out in our memories until next year at Salty's. Thank You for making our night truly special.

    For our first time there we had expected better from all the reviews we had read but it wasn’t. We got there and had to wait 10 mins cuz of a shift change which was fine. Then when we got our text that our table was ready the hostess had me wait a little longer cuz she “had something to do real quick” but all she did was go greet and hug people that were behind me. The view from our table was wonderful. I mean a view of the city and near the water who could complain about that? We got our drinks and food, but that was it for our server. I mean we didn’t need him to linger around but my wife had finished her drink/food and talked about ordering another drink and dessert, but we hadn’t seen him for a good half hour or so after his “is your food ok”. I saw the other server for the tables nearby more than our server. For the amount you spend I expected better.

    Salty's, without a doubt, has the best view of the Seattle skyline in the entire city. You will certainly pay for the pristine view because the food and drinks are overpriced for the most part. The service was unfortunately severely underwhelming since my party had a server that was new to the restaurant. It took well over 15 minutes before we had our drinks and another 15 minutes before we had our appetizer. The service improved over the course of the meal, but the server was very slow and inattentive at the outset.

    We wanted the restaurant with a view of the Seattle skyline on our first day. I made reservations at Salty’s and they did not disappoint. The views were spectacular and the food was just as good. The service was prompt and caring. We enjoyed halibut and our teenagers dug into the lobster and prawns bucatini. The oysters were fresh and tasty. We couldn’t get enough of the coconut shrimp - the pineapple salsa was amazing. There were no misses. We enjoyed a fruity Sauvignon Blanc - the wine list included many reasonably priced white wines. The halibut was pricier than we would have expected but the overall experience easily made up for that.
