Great experience as always! Our server Dane was absolutely amazing and made our experience better than we could have imagined! The bartender Scott made the best espresso martini I’ve ever had! He was kind enough to deliver a round of drinks to our table so that we could personally thank him for some amazing cocktails!

Three of us went to celebrate a special occasion. The outdoor seating in the tent was nice for COVID times, but the tent blocked the view which defeats the purpose of the elevated prices. Food was good, server was nice and only came by as necessary. The price was outrageous for the quality of the food and they even added on a service charge (not a tip) that the restaurant advertises on their menu does not go to staff. Adding a service fee on top of already high prices was disappointing.

Good food, been coming here for a whole. Covid 19 has messed up quite a bit of the restaurant biz. However Saltys has done a stand up job of making the best that they can out of the situation. The food is still excellent and the service is still great. I recommend this restaurant if you want a great meal.

Wow, we had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere Saltys created -difficult to achieve during the pandemic. Not the normal ‘tent’-We were very comfortable outside, enjoyed the Seattle skyline view with their clear tents, warm with their sophisticated heating system, delicious food and meticulous service! Amazing!

I love going to Salty's so I was happy they had outdoor dining it was very covid safe. It's in a vinyl tent that has heat blowing in it with both doors open so they are circulating beautifully but the best part is we were actually right on the water. I thought I was on a boat! And the food? I'm a pretty good cook but I can't hold a candle to these guys. And I had a beautiful dirty martini even though I was on a keto diet along with the salmon skewers scallops? Yep mighty fine! Can't wait to go back

The food is good, service is great and the ambiance is lovely, but the prices are unnecessarily high. Plus, the tables in the tented areas were a bit too close for my comfort during the pandemic.

Great place with beautiful views. The weather was chilly outside and the heaters worked well to keep us all warm and cozy :) The only disappointment was the incomplete order as we did not get our appetizer but overall a great experience and good food! We were celebrating a birthday and the surprise cake was very much appreciated! Recommend for a special occasion.

The view is super. However, within pandemic, the gazebo and the clear plastic setup blocked the view.

The hostess lead us to a table that was next to a table full of unmasked people, they weren’t eating, they were chatting even standing. And just left us. The two table was very close, not following the 6ft guideline if I must say.
I was not comfortable with that seat, me and my company had to climb all the stairs back to the restaurant to find the hostess, ask for a seat change.

She also didn’t bring menus for us, but mention we can scan QR code on the little stand on the table, that can see the menu.... when I heard that, I think: since when customers had to see menu by scanning a code ourself? Doing more steps than expected, what if we don’t have a QR code scanner in our phone?
That’s not the fun part, when we scan that QR code, it was the survey about dinning in this restaurant.
We didn’t even get served right... how can I leave survey? The restaurant really need to do more hostess training.

The food is good, that’s why I would still give 4stars.

I had brunch at Saltys this past weekend and it was a great experience! Upon arrival they welcomed me and wished me a happy birthday! I’m guessing my open table account showed my birthdate bc I don’t know how else they knew? We were able to sit outside despite the cold and raining day. They had heated tents right on the water decorated with fall decorations. The service was spot on and they even sprinkled some happy birthday confetti on our table along with a card. Such a nice touch! The food and drinks were good as expected from this establishment. They ended our meal with a surprise birthday cake and candle. Thanks Saltys for making my birthday brunch extra special even during these challenging times! :)
