Steamed or Chilled Dungeness Crab by the Cluster
Drawn butter. Wine Pairing: L'ecole Chenin Blanc, $34: Chenin blanc with its light body but fresh citrus flavors compliment crab
Colossal Bering Sea Red King Crab Leg
At over one pound per leg, these beauties are the penultimate treat! Sourced directly from Alaska there is no better king crab experience. Included with our leg is a bowl of chowder, caesar salad, and to put a bow on the experience, a slice of our signature white chocolate mousse cake. Wine Pairing: Pomum Cellars Riesling, $38: We like riesling or albarino for their refreshing light bodied zip
Nash was an outstanding waiter. Beautiful scenery. Delicious food (fish and chips, sushi roll, salad).
Beautiful view of downtown! Great service. Comfortable outdoor tented seating. Food was fresh and delicious.
Went for my girlfriends birthday, and they really made her night!
Going to be a new birthday tradition
We were very happy ! Ilya and family. Food was fantastic !
We ate Dinner and was great.... great service and the food was very very good.
Great food and beautiful atmosphere. Good for special occasion. We'll be back!
It was a great place to gout on a date, server was friendly, food came fast, food was awesome and view was amazing!
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
Fantastic birthday meal! Would recommend! We had a graet meal, the service was impeccable, and the view was unbeatable!
The mango habanero margarita is amazing and especially good if Mori the bartender makes it!
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.
Beautiful views and delicious food. You can’t go wrong with the halibut! Two buck shucks were a great deal and we loved the desserts!
Made reservations weeks in advance for outdoor seating. Arrived early for reservation at 5:30pm. Restaurant did not honor outdoor seating. Left unhappy with service.
Keen was our server and he was excellent! The views of the Seattle skyline along with our delicious 3 course meal was superb! I will definitely be coming back for the white chocolate mousse cake!
Foid and view were amazing!! Will definitely be back soon!!!
Our server Brian was was so AWESOME! Seating and seeing the city views was everything . Most importantly the food was perfect , drinks were definitely amazing! Best experience first time dining!
I celebrated my wedsing anniversary there. Adam amazing , attentive and thoughtful
Our server was wonderful and took great care of our table. We will continue to go back to Saltys!
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.
Everything was fabulous except our halibut was Luke warm.
Hi Jeannie! Thank you so much for joining us. We are sorry to hear the temperature of your entree wasn't up to standard. We do appreciate you coming in and hope to see you again for another visit!
Loved the outdoor HEATED dining. So warm! Great customer service
Corrine, thank you so much for dining with us! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed our heated tent dining experience. We appreciate you coming in and hope to see you again soon.
Good food, good service, great location and view. Love the calamari and prawn and lobster meat biantini!
Sabbath, thank you so much for dining with us. We are so happy to hear the calamari lived up to expectations! We appreciate this review and hope to see you again soon.
Thank you so much for this kind review! We look forward to your next visit!
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.
Thank you so much for choosing to give us a try! We appreciate you joining us and are so thrilled to hear your early mothers' day experience met expectations- and we agree, Tiffany is is such a great asset to our team! Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.
Nice to be out again! Great service and great food! Beautiful day to eat outdoors!
Thank you so much, Ronald. We appreciate you joining us and hope to see you again soon!
Great time. Everyone was kind and they even found out I was there for my birthday and brought a piece of cake with candle. And with restaurant week the 3 course meal for $35 is a great value.
Thank you so much for joining us for your special day! It was wonderful celebrating with you. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon!
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.
Thank you so much for dining with us and leaving this detailed review. We are so happy to hear your service and entrees helped make for an enjoyable weekend. We appreciate having you as our guest and look forward to your next visit.
Great food and excellent service!!! We went there for my daughter’s birthday and they had the table ready for us, decorated with happy birthday confetti, with a view as we requested. I would recommend this place for great views, good food, and awesome service!
Angela, thank you so much for joining us for your daughter's special day! We are so happy to hear your dining experience met expectations! We look forward to your next visit.
Very clean, wearing masks, felt safe, beautiful sunset. The food was great, as usual.
Donna, thank you so much for sharing such a kind review! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to your next visit.
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.
Marv, thank you for dining with us! We appreciate seeing your review and hope to see you again soon.
Great view and great service. We had some difficulty getting someone to seat us, waited 15 minutes pass our reservation and told to report to 2nd station and had to wait 15 minutes more.
Food was amazing and reasonably prices
Danette, thank you so much for joining us and leaving this feedback! We hope to see you again soon!
Amazing! We sat on the patio with a city view, great service and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend!
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.
Brody our server was amazing. Food was great and the ambience is wonderful.
Excellent seafood, beautiful views & great wine selection! I had such a great time at Saltys. Def go with a reservation & ask for a nice view of the Seattle skyline ✨
Stephany, we are so thrilled to see this review! We appreciate you joining us and hope to see you again soon!
I miss the Brunch! Service and Ambience was great but the Food and Drinks were soso compared to what we normally experience. Everyone deserves a little leniency in this covid environment though.
Food was absolutely phenomenal. Sat outside and celebrated a birthday and the whole staff made it feel special
Always top notch at Alki’s. Every bite is amazing and the views can’t be matched. Table 93, you’re welcome.
Food was so fresh and delicious! The view outside was amazing plus we were gifted with summer weather in April. Will definitely go again very soon!
