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.

That’s weird

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 !
