We had a great meal and superb service. The view of the harbor was great with nice views of the city. The fresh cut flowers were lovely and the restaurant was nicely decorated.
Great food, good view, good service. Will go there's again soon!
The food was delicious. The service was kind. The ambience was warm and classy. This restaurant was everything that my friends described. I’m glad to have finally had the chance to dine here. We will dine here again.
It's the small things that keep me from giving Salute E Vita 5 stars.
We really like this restaurant and have dined there numerous times. It is always very, very good - but there is always "something". Yesterday we met friends for lunch at Salute. Our friends ordered the risotto with smoked chicken special and the ahi salad special, and seemed to enjoy both. My husband ordered his usual lasagne. I ordered the poached eggs, spinach, English muffins and fruit special. All of the dishes arrived from the kitchen together. The risotto was steaming hot as was the lasagne. My egg dish was barely luke-warm. My guess is that it was plated before the risotto was quite finished, and just sat there. I didn't complain at the time (it isn't my style), but it definitely took the "deliciousness" of the dish down several notches.
Also, we had to ask for bread after our lunches were served. This hasn't previously happened.
Also, just beyond the row of booths is a door to a "special events" room. When the door was open, there was a nasty draft at our table, and quite a bit of extra noise. And the door opened and stayed stuck open constantly, either by people going in and out, or just by itself. I got up many times to close the door! Salute, please adjust the door. And future diners, try to be seated as far as possible from the party room.
As usual food was great and service was awesome. It was little busy and took more than few mins for the waitress to acknowledge us but no big deal. Food was fairly fast to come out. Drinks were really good. Ginger martini hit the spot!!
Our meal was delicious and service was attentive. The only drawback was a cold draught of air from the front door.
The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. The food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious.
Very good food, wonderful waterfront view, very comfortable and pleasing decor, great parking, good bar and lounge area.
Great place for a great meal, friendly service and an awesome waterfront view of San Francisco. Where everyone is family !!!!
Very nice. Beautiful view.
Incredible atmosphere, food and service. A hidden gem we will definitely be returning multiple times
Service was fantastic. Food was good. Great atmosphere. Friendly and fun.
One of the best places I have been in a decade! #Loveit
Lovely setting and beautifully furnished restaurant. Service is excellent.
A neighborhood treasure. Great food, service and ambience.
Menbe, the owner, is a treasure as well. She is a humanitarian serving white table cloth Thanksgiving dinners to the homeless every year on Thanksgiving.
Outstanding experience from service to food to view ❣️❣️
The ambiance, food and service are all great. The owner gives so much back to the community and those in need, which is another good reason to support this restaurant.
This as our first meal at the restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, service and atmosphere. We had short ribs and our friend had risotto with lamb chops. all the food was excellent.
We will come back!
Have been here several times and always enjoy it. A destination for special occasion dinners or brunches. Never disappointed.
salute E Vita Ristorante is an elegant, scenic restaurant. The food is delicious. The service is outstanding. Highly recommended for fine dining in a cozy environment.
This place is great. The service and food are top-notch. The view of the marina is so lovely. It is not noisy so you can talk, but it is at the same time lively. Great place.
Good food+good prices= a good time had by all. There was bread and there was water and some other things so I have to keep typing til I am past the 50 character mark.
Took my wife out for Valentines day. First time here, but will definitely come back. Great ambience, great service , great views and great food!
It was okay, but not outstanding. We were there on Valentine's, an extremely busy night for this restaurant. The staff worked very hard and we were waited on promptly; our food came faster than expected. We did feel rushed, so it was not as relaxed an occasion as it could have been.
The food itself was adequate, but nothing special. Ravioli was tasteless, lamb chops were quite chewy. Maybe the kitchen staff was not up to such a busy night.
The food is very hit and miss. Great view, service was solid.
Food was great, as always. Two of us had a salmon salad and it was just perfectly grilled.
Service was terrific, too!
And the view, WOW!
I have dined at Salute very often over the years having known previous ownership as well as the current one well. I'm a big supporter of the restaurant normally but was enormously disappointed on this occasion. We had an 8PM reservatioin and admittedly arrived 10-15 minutes late. The reception station was unoccupied but diners remained from earlier seatings. I walked into the bar to find a receptionist and then into the dining rooms. I was not able to locate (her). Finally I took two menus and seated the two of us in one of the dining rooms. Finally a server appeared and asked if we could be helped. I explained to him all of the above. He excused himself and shortly a woman approached and asked if she could be of help. I again explained. She became belligerent and said that because we were late we could not sit in the dinning room but she would seat us in the bar. I explained that we were late due to a late arriving flight at the Oakland airport. I also reminded her that she was not at her station when we arrived. "you were late" was her reply. Finally, Carlos, a long time employee and server intervened and asked where we would like to be seated and seated us at our chosen location. Meanwhile the receptionist sat at a nearby table eating her dinner. I reminded her on the way out of her less than appropriate (lack of) greeting. Her standard response was once again "you were late" and I had to be at another station (eating?). This individual is not doing Salute's reputation well. (the meal was, as always, very good and the ambiance is extraordinary on the bay in the city of Richmond.
We live close to Salute and have been 4 times now and it never seems to get any better.
Food is OK but not up to the price point. View and ambience are great, decor is great,
but when the service and food are mediocre it brings everything down.
We have gone to Salute many times, mostly for special occasions.The homemade pasta and fresh seafood is always delicious. The waterfront view is spectacular for sunsets, and is very romantic. Happy Hour at the bar is a great value. Membe, the owner, is a wonderful person who truly cares about giving back to the community.
Very pleasant spot for lunch. Simple but good Italian dishes. Excellent cocktails. Very good service. Desserts were mediocre.
We haven't been here for years, when our niece came to town and it was especially warm, we wanted a place on the water. This restaurant is at the Marina and it was lovely - although they needed to wash some of the windows. We ordered a pizza, caesar salad, fish and shrimp - we all turned to each other and said "that was good". The dessert cart is a great feature and the Creme Brulee was good. There aren't that many good Italian restaurants near us and this one is worth another visit.
Good but expensive lunch.
We were marking our friends’ 50th wedding anniversary and we all enjoyed the dinner very much. The food, staff, service, and the room were very pleasing.
Food was great. Great bruschetta. Pastas were homemade and delicious. We had seafood pasta, prawn pasta and lasagna.
My two sons, Daughter in law, my Wife and I went to celebrate my birthday. The food was outstanding, everyone cleaned their plate. Our Waiter was there when we needed him, very efficient, helpful, explained menu items and specials.
I get down to Point Richmond every now and then, but every time I do I'm sure to visit Salute E Vita. The food is amazing and the service is perfect. Very attentive without hovering. Timing on service is spot on, we never felt rushed.
Even if we don't get a window table the view is still very nice. The window tables are reserved for tables of 3 or 4, unless you show up late in the evening.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that like Italian food.
I would not recommend eating here. We waited an hour to receive our food. The mussels had sand in them, the tails of the shrimp were in my soup, and my husband's lasagna was cold.
Salute offers a beautiful setting and a staff that is always welcoming and attentive. The food is good but not outstanding. But the overall experience is most pleasing.
Wonderful venue, spectacular view, extremely efficient and friendly staff. Husbands dish, shrimp with pasta with argula and garlic was exquisite. My special of the day was very good, if maybe a little bland. However, I did request the gluten free pasta which was cooked to perfection. I would most definitely go again. I also loved the added touch of fresh flowers everywhere.
Lovely room with a water view. My only complaint was that apparently no one advised our server when we were seated and so we waited quite a long time before he came to our table. He did apologize and the service after that was fine. We all enjoyed the food very much.
