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. Join us for brunch, lunch or dinner

OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)

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

Love this place! We finally tried it a few months ago and had to come back. Spent New Years Eve and it was perfect. The Salmon was great. We will be back.

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.
