Apparently woefully understaffed...Took forever to get drinks, etc. Manager finally stepped in and did a fine job of waiting on us.
I know you pay a lot for the view here, but it is still overpriced for the quality of the food. My 27.00 lobster tail was very small and overcooked. My petite filet (46.00)was also very small (5oz) at best and drowned in Bernaise sauce.

Also, 18.00 for a martini is a bit much. New York prices in Seattle

Food quality was mixed. My wife had the salmon and I had the Alaskan halibut - both were excellent. But our daughter found her fish & chips very average. Our waiter was courteous and polite enough but failed to completely clear the used entree dishes before dessert, despite requesting him twice. It was also hard to get his attention, generally.

No pun, the squid was salty so much so it was not eatable. $50 for a steak with no seasoning. The service was good and the view was wonderful. $200 for two next time I'll drive downtown and have food that I'll enjoy.

This was my first time here, I chose this place for the great reviews. We decided to take our mother to dinner for an early Mother’s Day celebration on a Thursday and we did not regret our decision! They sat us outside where there is an incredible view. Tiffany was very kind, personable, and she provided us with a overall wonderful experience. Thank you Tiffany! The food was great and had great options for your budget! You can spend as little or as much as you’d like. If I ever decide to return to Seattle, I will definitely return.

It was a beautiful even to enjoy dinner on the deck at Salty’s. We made our reservation in advance and arrived on time. Took a few minutes to get seated and the view of the Seattle skyline was exceptional. My wife had a salad and the cod & chips, which she loved. I had a cup of seafood chowder and the cod and chips which were well prepared and flavorful. Service was friendly and attentive, in spite of the fact that our waitress, Shonda, had several big tables.

Not a bad place to go for a date or anniversary, I was wondering how to book a open table and able to choose where you want to sit, cause the view is so amazing there, you see the whole city of seattle.

Great outdoor seating, efficient wait staff, and ample menu offerings. We chose Salty's to celebrate a special event, so these three qualities made it the right decision. The downside of sitting outdoors was that our food selections that should have been hot were not even warm when they arrived to our table, and the king crab was a bit dry, over-cooked.

Our bill included a 4% surcharge and the notation "100% will be retained by the house." When we asked what the surcharge was for, we were told that the restaurant started adding the surcharge when the State of Washington passed legislation that restaurants must pay their employees minimum wage. I've not seen this practice at other restaurants, but I'll be on the lookout for businesses that pass on the cost of good business practices -- compensating their employees fairly -- to their customers.
