The Trident Restaurant is located "on the water" in historic Sausalito, CA
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.

Birthday. Everything excellent except the calamari in the Ciopino was tough/rubbery and lacked flavor

Our waiter knew his stuff about the food and was very pleasant. The whole staff was friendly and upbeat.

I can’t say how delicious the Cioppino is. All I can say is that I’ve had a numerous seafood dishes in my time and that was the best I’ve had. It was chock full of mussels, clams, salmon and a half a crab and the broth and vegetables were outstanding. The vegetables were just right which can be tough with a disk like this. The crab was much better than I had at a close by crab house the night before. I can’t say enough, that dish is OUTSTANDING.

The seafood tacos were also very good. Can’t beat the view either.

Just a nice experience. Sat by window as requested. Food was served not too fast or slow. Our server was so pleasant. The view was extraordinary.

Date night with my GF. Food was great but for the price, I expected a little bit more from it. I ordered the special for that night which is their halibut. Perfectly cooked but lacking on the sauce and portion. GF ordered the salmon and lacks a little bit of sauce. View from the balcony is perfect for date night and pretty warm as well considering how cold it was that night.
Great service as well.

The food was good; better than I expected. The waiter hovered a little too much around my son's girlfriend, probably due to somewhat low cut blouse. Too obvious to me. On the sorta negative side, the coffee was tepid and the bread seemed like it was a day old. The cocktails were ok, as was the wine. I had only the cocktail and water, others had wine, with no complaints

Our waiter ran outside to catch us to tell us we “overtipped” him! We hadn’t seen the automatic 20% tip since there were 6 of us. Super honest, love that he did that.

Expensive for what you get. Ingredients not fresh. Reminds me of food you would get at a restaurant at a U.S. national park. Drinks expensive $15/cocktail - hefty in size, but not innovative or tasty. Went on a Saturday when they had an entertainer sitting at a keyboard singing. It was very loud, so difficult to have a conversation. The Trident heavily relys on their location and history for business. They appear not interested in providing better food or drinks then when it was called Horizons. I wouldn't have known that it was under a new name/ownership?

The hostess and waiter really went out of the way to assure a special evening for our mother’s 88th birthday dinner. She had a view of the City, great jazz music, and delicious sea scallop dinner. We were all so happy with everything!
Thanks,

I think this was the 7th visit to the restaurant so we do like it. For a little disappointing this time. All those who had French Fries they were all cold. Still we had a great afternoon. Loved the Espresso Martini's !

We came for the local dungeness crab and it did not disappoint. However, when we booked a 3:45pm reservation on Open Table and when we arrived at the restaurant, we were told we would have to wait for 45 min. Another woman at the restaurant said she had a 2pm reservation and did wait for 45 min to be seated. So we went for a walk but then 10 min later, were called back to be seated. We had a nice table by the window with a great view. Despite being not so crowded, the service was rather slow and the waiter not very attentive. Thankfully, the dungeness crab was so delicious that it made everything worth it. Don't think we would come back on a crowded day though.

The hostess went out of her way to make sure we got a great table, even though we were really early for our reservation. She checked in throughout the night and made sure we were completely taken care of. The dinner was great and the lava cake was fantastic!!

The Trident is incredibly charming. An homage to the Marin of the 60s and 70s without being kitschy. The view of San Francisco is, unless it’s foggy, sublime. Our server Mike was congenial, unobtrusive, always exactly on time with food, drinks, and refills, and added to the experience. The food is probably second tier for a city like San Francisco. The trident is unlikely to win a Michelin Star but only because seafood and American classics aren’t cutting edge, not because the execution is in any way off. The char on the items in my ciopinno was flawless. The calimari fried with jalapeño appetizer might be the best execution of that ubiquitous dish I’ve had in years.

Enjoyed all of our seafood and pasta dishes. Service was excellent, and they treated our birthday girl well. Valet parking was expensive. We will come in warmer weather next time and enjoy eating on the outside deck. Definitely recommend

Trident is our family choice for a dinner during Christmas Holiday. Seafood across the board is excellent, but the Crab, my grandchildren's favorite and their special treat, are better than excellent. We sit at a round table, look out over the bay, talk, laugh, and have a wonderful time. Service is friendly.
