Our heated outdoor decks provide a sensational dining experience with spectacular San Francisco bay views. Our outdoor deck is also dog friendly.
Inside is an incredible recipe of art and architecture, complemented with a resemblance of an old yacht. The ceiling mural was original to the Trident and painted by Dave Richards, creator of Janis Joplin’s infamous 1965 Porsche Cabriolet. On the outside deck, discover one of the most stunning restaurant waterfront views on the west coast, which boasts the skyline of San Francisco, Angel Island and Alcatraz.

Terrible food, made me sick
Good food. Wonderful waiter. Awesome music!
We were a table of 4 and seated immediately. I had clam chowder and crab cakes. The chowder was nice & creamy with more clams than potatoes, I could not eat the crab cakes. I ate one but it was like a hush puppy with spicy spread. I gave the remaining to my cousin. My friend had the chowder and an iceberg lettuce salad with bacon blue cheese dressing. She really enjoyed it My cousin had ceviche and a cesar salad and steamed mussels. His wife had the grilled salmon. The bread was delicious and plentiful. The bread bowl and butter were kept full without having to ask as were our water glasses. I will go back to try the halibut. I will limit my bread intake. They also had striped sea bass on the menu which sounded good. I just did not care for the crab cakes.
Risotto sehr lecker. Wein gut gekühlt
Loved it. Haven’t been in many years. Food is good, portions are generous, view is killer. Attentive service. Will be back.
The chef is marvelous ! The atmosphere is tranquil early in the evening. As the sun set, the views of SF Bay made a nice backdrop for a nice evening with friends at dinner. The service and standard of food, which is high, is good enough on its own without the historical value of The Trident.
Cousins from out of town. I brought them for the view and because on the you said you had wild salmon. Unfortunately, it did not say Wild on the menu but my cousin ordered it anyway. I hope I didn’t mislead him.
Our server: Stephanie was friendly & kept checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our meal. There was live piano & flute music. Great view & food was delicious(chicken, salmon tartare, cioppino & clam chowder).
We sat outdoors near the heat lamps. We had a great view across the bay. We both had the halibut. DELISH! Service by Israel was fantastic.
Great music, great atmosphere, great service and great food!! A fun evening!
Great, fantastic service, best views ever. What more could you want. Oh and good music in the background too.
The Trident is a favorite stop of mine, which is why we use them on our food tour in Sausalito.
It was lovely to unwind Friday with my adult kids in a historic building on the water.
The Trident has a rich and colorful past, but the best part about it is the food. The wine list is equally
impressive. I ordered the fish special and it was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. I had never dined with them for dinner before and will definitely return.
Gorgeous view, accommodating staff and delicious food...we will definitely return!
We love this place! Patio on the water allows beautiful views of the Bay and the San Francisco skyline when it isn't foggy! We have had Stephanie wait on us a couple of times since we've been here and she is fantastic! My husband is a big fan of Tuna Melts and the one they have on their menu on the weekend is the best he's ever had!
Hello. Overall, it was very good. We ordered a glass of wine to enjoy while choosing an entree, and it took almost 15 minutes until it came to the table. The entrees were excellent and the atmosphere and view of SF were awesome. We had the calamari appetizer which was fair. The rings were good, but the tendrils were chewy and undercooked. We grew up coming to Sausalito and haven't been to The Trident Restaurant in almost 30 years. It brought back very good memories for us and will definitely come again. Sorry for the constructive criticism, but I hope you are looking for honesty.
Seafood was excellent and prepared well. Awesome view of the bay and city from the outdoor seating. Price was a little high but expected for Sausalito.
Gorgeous setting gorgeous view!! Wait staff was warm and accommodating and the food was delicious- order the Caesar salad and the scallops.
Fantastic food, beautiful setting and gorgeous food. We loved it!
Found The Trident on our way from SFO to Sonoma. The wait staff were all very attentive and friendly. We asked for recommendations and decided to try the fish tacos. I order fish tacos a lot and these were by far the best I have ever had. The best quality fish (sea bass), fresh corn tortillas, huge chunks of avocado, and a wonderful light and refreshing slaw. A must try if you go to The Trident. We are planning to stop there on our way back this Friday!
We really enjoy our waiter, John. This was the sexy time he has waited on us and he is wonderful. Professional, yet friendly and warm. Thank you. We will be back.
View was awesome, Risotto was underwhelming, cole slaw was gross smelled like yesterday’s trash. Fish was good, hamburger was good. Not worth 5 star prices that’s for sure. Was on par with chili’s.. except cold slaw was gross...
Great view, great table, very good food. Very unusual waiter that must have been new, not the typical excellent service.
Great location. A bit pricey for lunch but it was delicious.
My Sister lives in Denver so whenever she visits me in Benicia, we always drive to Sausalito for dinner at The Trident!
Really loved the food but our service was good but could be better. Our order was not communicated properly and we had to keep asking for our forever dish. But the food was excellent and so was the views! Would visit again!
Perfect day in Sausalito! Outdoor dining a must for the views. Food was excellent! Branzino was prepared to perfection!
It was great to have dinner and listen to the Rowan Brothers play their fantastic selection of tunes. Took us back to the Summer of Love! They play there almost every Friday night. We will be back!!
Always a great place to grab a bite, lunch or dinner. Good value, good taste with an INCREDIBLE view
Excellent service from our waiter.
Yummy chicken sandwich and magnificent views.
Not like it was in the old days. The food was pretty good. Our waiter was fine. The view is great. But, I think there are better choices for about the same price in Sausalito.
Ordered halibut, got scallops. Brought me the halibut finally and it was dry with hardly any seasoning and the kale wasn’t very cooked. Ended up still having to pay for halibut. Not great service.
As second time diners holidaying from NZ, we had some Atlanta newbies with us this time. They were so impressed with everything about The Trident, they returned the next day for a further lunch.
We were all delighted with the food, the service and the setting. Sadly, we don’t get to visit frequently, but whole heartedly recommend The Trident as a place to dine. Using the OpenTable app made it so easy to book a table from the other side of the world. Thanks all-round.
Excellent for lunch. Give it 4.5+ stars. YES, we would go back. LONGER VERSION: We headed up to Wine Country from San Fran and picked Trident for lunch. Glad we did. SERVICE: From Marika was Excellent. Right there when you needed her, and she had great advice and attitude to boot. FOOD: Seafood Pasta, Black and Blue salad with Chicken and Grilled Salmon - all very good to excellent. Yes, we would order them again. Mojitos and a Martini done perfectly. OVERALL: A nice place on the water in Sausalito that will satisfy. Yes, we would go back. Nice job!
Sunset view was outstanding - so based on that alone strong recommendation for dinner. The food was OK. We come from a foodie town so weren't that overwhelmed but the food was fine. Scallops/Risoto were excellent. Halibut was Mediocre. The Calamari was a bit greasy for our taste. The banana dessert was fantastic.
Blast from the past, a wonderful dinner on a unusually warm night in Sausalito. The dozen oysters were delicious and enjoyed by all! The seafood linguine was also a hit. Wine list is small, but did find two bottles that perfectly complimented our meal. Service was excellent!
Perfect view of the bay and the city from the deck. Order the crab Louie salad!
Best cheeseburger I've ever had in my life, and the fries were superb. The bacon & prawn bloody mary is a meal in itself. The food is incredibly fresh, well prepared and served with care. And you certainly can't beat the view!
The food was great tasting, very fresh, perfect portions and the entire restaurant feel was open, airy, professional, relaxing.
Trident was recommended by family and we were very pleased from start to finish. We ate outside which was quieter and we could enjoy a panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay from Sausalito. Spectacular at sunset
Amazing views and food
