After reading some reviews I wasn’t sure what to expect. The food was very good- seafood options were by far the best. The service on the other hand was ok. She did the bare minimum- got us drinks and cleared plates. She asked if this was our first time for brunch and we said yes. I was expecting a quick run down and maybe some recommendations. Neither of that happened. We were told where to go and that we would “figure it out.” That left me wondering, what was the point in asking us if it was our first time?

As brunch was winding down, we overheard another server go around to their tables and inform them that the buffet was ending soon and the last fresh food was being put out. Our server- nowhere to be found and never relayed this message.

At the end of our brunch we were brought a plate of dessert with a candle and our server said, “Happy Birthday.” It was neither of our birthdays- rather an anniversary. Not a big deal on the surface by any means, but it just showed to me how much the server cared. The host that greeted us at arrival was wonderful and said Happy Anniversary to us. So it is clear the information was available, our server just didn’t care to look. She was robotic and that type of service takes away from it feeling like a special occasion.

I’m not sure if the service was poor because we were younger, not 100% white, or if we just had a server that was tired of her job or that shift. We talked for about 20 minutes at brunch trying to decide what the cause of the poor service might be. Hopefully this is not the usual, but no plans of coming back to find out for myself. So many other options in the city.

We go every 2 years or so for the brunch buffet. Absolutely worth the price. This is the first time we went during the holidays. Loved the decorations. The buffet had everything from eggs & bacon, to a pasta bar, oysters and crab legs.

We met friends after years apart, divided by a continent and an ocean, for dinner. The restaurant was quiet to begin with, around 25% of tables occupied, and we were give a table with a fabulous view across the bay to the city. The waiter was very attentive and answered all our questions regarding items on the menu.
Having made our choices and ordered drinks, we began catching up with everything since last we met; the low level of ambient noise allowed this without raised voices.
Our starters were well presented and delicious and went down quickly with no complaints. The main course, where 3 of 5 of us had ordered the chef's special which was sold very well by the waiter, was a slight let down. The swordfish, while cooked to perfection, was let down a little by the slaw and rice which was a little sticky. That said, it was not enough of a disappointment to raise it with the waiter and all plates were clean with none of the fish left over.
The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all present and complement by an excellent white wine.

I have donned at Salty’s for over 10 years. The quality of the food has continued to decline over the last year. The Sunday brunch is obviously cutting corners and every dish was cold . The drinks were poorly made although the price for my mimosa has increased. Dought that I will return unless the quality returns.

Love Salty's on Alki Beach.

I visit Salty's at least twice a year as I am from out of town. My most recent visit was one of the best. We were picked up by their driver, Thomas. He was very friendly and knowledgeable when it came to Seattle history and definitely provided an enjoyable ride. Our server was Mary. She was phenomenal in every aspect of our dining experience. This was an engagement dinner and everything went flawless. A special thank you to Mara the manager, our server Mary, and Thomas our driver.

Many more dinners at Salty's to come!

This is a large and iconic establishment in West Seattle with a great view. We had a good view but it was super drafty/cold near the windows and we all had to keep our jackets on. The food and service were quite good but I felt it was overpriced. We had a reservation but still had to wait about 10 minutes for our table that was set for 5, even though reservation was for 6. Sort of minor, but a bit irritating as we had out of town, older (my Mom) company. So many great places to go that I probably wouldn't recommend it over a smaller, more intimate eating establishment.

What a wonderful experience we had. We decided to so Sunday hoping it would be quieter, because we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. A perfect night, the food was great, the service was top notch! Seated us in the corner in front of the windows, we had an amazing view!! Bella was our server and she made our night extra special.
