Wonderful service, and fun location, with water views. It is incredibly overpriced, even for this very expensive area. Servings are quite small and the food is adequate, but certainly not great. The service was lovely, with a very nice staff.

5 of us had dinner Sunday night. We enjoyed the evening. Unfortunately, the service was a bit slow and perhaps most irritating was that the main plates arrived while we were still eating the salads.

Our lunch was great. The kids portion for pasta, maybe a little small. But everything else was great.

Always enjoy dinner here on the water. Whether a special occasion or just a weekend afternoon, we always appreciate the time at Salito’s. Not too fancy but not casual either, the food is solid and the service is attentive. And, of course, always a fabulous view!

Beautiful views of the bay from our table. Food was good, but on the pricey side. And parking was a bit tough that day - tight, busy parking lot. Overall, we did enjoy our lunch - it's a great location.

This was my third visit to Salito's. On my past visits I would have rated the food very high. On this day, the restaurant was slow as it was a holiday weekend and I am guessing folks were traveling. I love the ambiance and the waterside dining at this restaurant and the service has always been good for us. Unfortunately the food was not up to par this time. We ordered prime rib to split which was $49 and came with a few potatoes. For the price, the serving seemed small, but we are not big eaters and usually split a meal. We also had the crab cocktail which was enjoyable. We ordered the prime rib medium rare, but arrived medium to medium well, not pink at all. We ate it without complaining, but after we left my husband and I discussed it and both felt it was not worthy of the price. I would still go back and recommend to others because of my past experiences, but would not recommend the prime rib. We did enjoy the $50 bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay which was a bargain :-)

I was pleased. I told them we had out of town visitors and they gave us a water view table. The food is a little pricey but I’m sure it’s not cheap to operate in that location and the portions they give you are very good. The rombauer Chardonnay at under 50 a bottle is a bargain. (Not sure if they are still doing that. )

Very pleasant valentine's day dinner. They placed us right at the waters edge and got us in earlier than our reservation. They had some portable heaters to take the chilly edge off.

The shrimp was undercooked and the side dish of potatoes tasted like it had been in a warmer all day. The quality of the food was terrible. I don’t understand why it was busy. I will never eat there again. On a positive note the staff was very nice.

Excellent service! The crab legs were well seasoned but could've added a bit more and ceasar salad was bland. Overall when in Sausalito again we plan to return to Salito's.

We went for the crab and the food was a disappointment. Crab cakes tasted like deep fried soggy breadcrumbs. Crab enchilada was flavorful but little crab and and the spiciness overwhelmed the delicate crab flavor.

Crab bisque was good. Ambience good. Service very good.

Probably would go back but certainly not rushing there. Would try something else for food
