My prime rib was a bit ropy, but If you stick to the seafood you shouldn’t be disappointed.

Our overall experience there was horrible. Your host was horrible, better training should be implemented.

One of our favorite places to dine. The food is always amazing, and you can't beat the gorgeous views. Even on a chilly day sitting on the patio is so comfortable with all of the heaters they offer. We love taking out of town guests to this location, as it gives a true feel of dining on the coastal waters, and offering delicious seafood.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Great view and there is ample outdoor and indoor seating. We had the sizzling crab/shrimp, salmon, seabass, caesar salad, cheesecake and the crunch cake. We ordered the bread also. All were very good. My only complaint is there were 4 of us and they seated us at a round table which was too small and couldn't hold all of the platters and dishes. We had to have food delivered in shifts; they had to take some dishes away before they could put anything else on the table. This table was really for 2 people.
Other than the 'table' issue this was a lovely experience and we will be back.

The sea bass was very dry and had no butter sauce. I wanted to ask for some garlic butter sauce that it was supposed to have but the waiter was no where in sight. I think he had too many tables and they were very apart. Anyways after a while I was able to flag down my another waiter to get me some sauce.

Crab was dry and salty, prime rib was dry also- something off this time around.

We thoroughly enjoy having dinner at Salito's - and try to go there very often. You can't beat sitting right on the water in Sausalito, and their food is very good.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Salito’s. We were celebrating a birthday & had a spectacular view. The food was delicious & the service was very good. We will definitely be back when we’re in town again.

It was a fun place. Friendly greeter and waitperson. I ordered Cipollino. It was served in a cast iron pot. It was soooo hot & boiling. I unfortunately tried to eat it too early & burned the roof of my mouth & tongue. Might be better to serve with a bowl for guest to transfer contents to cool off before trying to consume. Sourdough bread loaf was great.

It was Labor Day. First of all the setting by the water is excellent. Food was good but not great. Although we had a reservation we were not seated until 40 minutes later. The person who was supposed to be checking people in was clearly overwhelmed and agitated. He was rude to several customers that asked him questions. Once seated it was approximately another 40 minutes until the entree’s arrived. We had to ask 3 times for water and the shared appetizer came without plates. Staff were so rushed that we never were able to get anyone’s attention. My wife’s order came with an ingredient that she specifically asked be omitted. Not a great experience.

Usually love this place, but our server, who was pleasant, was completely overwhelmed, & therefore, our service was super slow…
Took him a very long time to even initially approach our table!
Was disappointing:(

Great view, great food, go somewhere else for great service. Took 20 mins for the beer/bottle of wine we ordered. 55 mins to get our cheesy kettle break which was ordered twice and forgot once. Two tables who came after us received entrees before we were ever given a chance to order. Took 30 mins to get the check. Had to slip the busboy/host some money to get him to harass our waiter twice until he finally brought the check and tried to rudely have me pay it right away. Seemed most people in our servers section had a similar experience. Tried complaining, but was told by several people I needed to talk to someone else. Not the place I remember. What a shame.

Great for ambiance. Appreciate a place where we can eat outdoors and have a good view. The young woman who was our server did a fine job. Food was all right. Prices are fairly high for the food but help pay for the view.

This is a pleasant place, with one entire wall open to the air and next to the water. I like the ambience of the place. The menu is good, and some of the food is very good. Mostly, I find the food to be OK, not special. However, we usually go there with guests just because of the feel of the place and the many seafood menu choices. Usually, everyone is satisfied with what they get and feel comfortable sitting and chatting for a while without feeling rushed.
