Went here for husband's birthday, fantastic overall - crab cake, lobster and risotto, and halibut were all amazing.
I've only been to Salty's a couple of times because I have to take a ferry to get there - it is plenty worth it. I enjoy the atmosphere but am trying to figure out how early a person needs to arrive in order to get a window seat! I guess when it opens at 4:30 would be a good guess. I had reservations at 6 and wasn't able to get a scenic view. Even so, it is great food and great service.
Salty's at Alki commands a wonderful view of Seattle for out-of-town guests. The food and wine choices were excellent. We found the restaurant to be a bit noisy with conversations and laughter. However, that is a GOOD sign that people are enjoying themselves.
Quite a long wait , a little noisy.
I made my reservation 2 weeks ahead for a window seat but I didn’t get it , kind of disappointed!
The acknowledgement of my friend's birthday was outstanding - the signed card, the balloons and the dessert with the candle. She was thrilled. Our waitress was exceptionally good. The view is perfect, even on a cloudy day.
The only negative thing was that the crab sandwich was disappointing.
We had a family dinner during Seattle restaurant week and it was lots of fun. The view was great. The staff was upbeat and professional. The options were varied so everyone had something they liked.
Great atmosphere as it is on the water looking across the lake looking towards the Seattle waterfront. Great view at night when all the city lights are on. Great tasting food. Price is on the spendy side. We went as an anniversary event. Two hits that made it a not-quite-perfect event: 1). Kids were allowed in and they were screaming... (PEOPLE - do NOT take your little kids here because it disturbs the atmosphere) and 2) The Cesar salad was uncut romaine lettuce leafs... trying to cut those made a mess or if you tried to shove a whole leaf in your mouth, it just looked awkward....so advice to the chef: Please cut or shred the romaine like normal. Otherwise..we had a great time.
Been several times, and this is such a nice place to go for a leisurely Sunday brunch with a knockout view.
They had a very wide variety of food for the Sunday Brunch. However, the food was only mediocre. It really isn't up to the price they charge. The variety is the only saving grace. So, if you want to try a lot of different choices and don't mind paying too much for only decent food, give them a try.
Always a great place for a comfortable and excellent meal, with outstanding service
Very nice friendly staff upon arrival. Was seated in a horseshoe shape table, 6 grown men, and the waiter came looked at us and promptly moved us to a larger table. Service was amazing could not have asked for a better waiter, food was good, not great as I had expected and would have expected for the price. I would go back but only on a very special occasion.
First visit to Salty’s and the view was spectacular! Food and service was very good. My friend’s fish came out under cooked but they were able to re-fire it. Only bummer is she ate a little bit after the rest of the group. A bit pricey for everyday dining but I’d go again.
We were there for Saturday brunch with my wife and two kids. The service was great and good ambiance overall. But the food was an average to below average for the price. Would not recommend for family brunch. I would rather spend $200 for better steak or sushi restaurant.
We visited Salty’s and Received outstanding service all around! Everyone was very kind and attentive, while still giving us time to enjoy the phenomenal views that surrounded us! Overall a must when visiting Seattle!
At Salty's you're really paying for atmosphere. The food is good but not spectacular. It's a great place for taking out of town visitors but it's not a great value so I wouldn't go there on a regular basis
Wonderful service and good food! Would definitely recommend!
The ambiance lovely; the view amazing; the device excellent, personable, and thoughtful; the food delicious. Plus the very ellegant seagull that kept vigil outside the window was very entertaining! A WIN in every category.
Seattle restaurant week menu, excellent prepared steelhead and wolffish, poke was a delight. Mussels and clams in spicy broth was delicious. Excellent view of downtown. Have eaten here for Happy Hour with the bar menu also being delicious and a value for quality of meal.
This was a get together of long-time girlfriends. We feel we had the best table in the house with an unobstructed view of the sound and a glorious view of the city. The food was very good and pleasing to the eye. I would highly recommend Salty's.
This restaurant was suggested to us for a business meal. It has amazing views of the sound and Seattle. The food & service were very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
We have mixed emotions about Salty's. The part that we like the most is the spectacular view of Seattle's skyline. The service is amazing. Every staff member is friendly, polite, and attentive. What we didn't like is that we were not very impressed with the food. One of our orders is the prawn special. There were three pieces of prawns on top of the polenta. THREE pieces for that kind of price! The other items that we ordered were crab melt, calamari, poke bowl, fish & chips, and chowder. The presentation is enticing. The quality is average. We were expecting superior taste from this kind of restaurant. We'll try it again with our out of town visitors to impress them with the view, and hopefully, our high expectations with their menu will be rewarded.
Our server Brian was outstanding, the meals were fantastic, the only flaw is they seated us with a post blocking part of our view with many tables unfilled during the evening. Small bit important detail, Salty’s you need to do better here.
Always a great place to relax with friends. Went for the Sunday Brunch. Unfortunately, some of the food was fairly picked over or dry. But our server, Joseph, was fantastic!
Quite a bit of the food was lukewarm. We had to ask for plates to be removed from our table. I was also disappointed that we had to pay for iced tea. It was a once of a lifetime for my family for those prices
Usually the visits are very nice. I came 2 weekends in a row for brunch. Once in a Saturday and once in a Sunday. There’s no difference in the food selection but the prices are higher on Sunday. Also... the “warm” crab was not warm even though it had a heated warmer under it.
Not a gross buffet experience
Good quality seafood, fresh
Halibut and crab legs were amazing
Staff was courteous and quick
Recommend earlier arrival when it is more chill if coming for brunch
Great food and great selection. Service was quite good. Noise level was a bit too loud though. Also lots of ragged looking and uncouth people. A dress code might help.
Food was amazing (halibut and scallops with prawns), baked Alaska for dessert), excellent service
Weekend brunch - an unbelievable amount of food. Only worth it if you are hungry and like seafood and meat. Otherwise I would go somewhere you can just order what you want. What I had was good but not worth the price charged for brunch. Omelette and hash browns and antipasto cost $57.99 plus tax and tip.
The service and food were the best I've had in a long time. Everyone was friendly and the food was SO fresh! My boyfriend had a great birthday! Thanks guys!
So much food to choose from. Beautiful view. The staff was awesome, fantastic service. Will go again!
our server was fantastic! he was really dialed in with us and made the dining experience that much better.
Selected Salty's for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. It was an easy choice for us. We knew we would be treated right and the cuisine would not disappoint. No disappointments here, we enjoyed the evening.
Thanks for a job well done.

We had a great dinner on Thursday at Salty's. We both had smoked steelhead and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. Our sides were very tasty as well. Service was excellent and ambiance was the best.
Love saltys. Their happy hour is the BEST!!! Pretty reasonably priced for a fancy menu. Their dinner is super pricey for the amount of food you get, but the food is really yummy. Would definitely only go for dinner on a special occasion. But will go for happy hour all the time! 🖤
Great view and food. Always visit when we are in Seattle. This time we taught them how to make Affogatos to add to their menu. Felix did a great job!
Food was good but not as good as I expected for the price. Lobster tail was over cooked, charred in places and tough. One of our meals was a $40 meal where the main course was 3 prawns... 3 prawns and some rice for $40! We had a reservation and were seated 25 minutes after our reservation time. We were at our table for 90 minutes before we even got our meal and were finished for 15 minutes and hadn’t seen a waiter so I had to go track down our check. Appetizer and dinner took over 2 hours and we missed the last water taxi downtown so we had 4 tickets that we couldn’t use and had to Uber back to our hotel. We had a great table with a beautiful view but be sure you’re ok with paying for the setting because the food and service certainly aren’t worth the price. We’re in town several times a year and we’ll check Salty’s off our list as a one and done.
We enjoyed our meal and our waiter Keen was excellent.
All and All, we felt it was 7 out of a 10. With a 1:30 res, it seemed to take 15 mins to a half hour before you get seated. So much food, you can't possibly try everything. Although I wanted too. Hard to get to everything they offer. Guess I'll have to go back and spend another $60, + whatever it cost for a strong and delicious Bloody Mary, that I was delighted to make my self at the Bloody Mary bar. Again.. Value nah, but who goes to that place for the value?! LOL 💵💲💰💲💸
Must go to the Sunday brunch much more worth it than the dinner and lunch
