Perfect day to have a gorgeous view with a few baby seals swimming nearby as a bonus! A SF/Sausalito treat of a Louie Combo Salad & glass of wine. Service was great and we had THE best table for our views! Why they had the a/c on, we have no idea, Sun was out, but too chilly for a/c....and it was quiet when we arrived, but then more folks came in and it got terribly noisy! All in all, a great, tasty treat.

Great view! Very nice server. Food was just OK. The bay shrimp in the bay shrimp salad were a little mushy. The scallops brochette scallops were small and a little overpriced.

I hadn't been to the Spinnaker in years. I went for Valentine's Day with my "significant other" and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the waiter outstanding. Not an everyday restaurant, but a great place for special occasions, with an amazing view.

Went here for Valentines Day with my husband and had a great meal! Seafood was not fishy tasting, unlike other restaurants in the area. We’ll be back!

No mistaking the view from Spinnaker is spectacular. The food, not so much. It wasn't bad, but given the price, it wasn't that good either. The waitress clearly didn't want to be there that day. She did her job, but with no enthusiasm. As we were having dessert, I overheard the waitress next to us telling her customers about a special dessert they had that day. Our waitress didn't tell us about it. The service was quick--a little too quick for our liking. I have enjoyed good meals there in the past, so hopefully, this was just an off day.

Steak wasn’t great, but that’s what you get for ordering steak in a seafood restaurant. Prawns and veggies were delicious. View was spectacular.

Great view, excellent service, delicious, fresh seafood. It was a crystal clear night, San Francisco sparkled in the distance.

Server was great, he was attentive, hands off, kept out wine glasses full.

We will be back.

This is one of our go-to places when we have out of town guests. The view is gorgeous. We’ve taken weekend sailors to watch America’s Cup, and yesterday brought a friend escaping the frozen East Coast to enjoy our 70 degree February. Food is always excellent, service good, and valet parking helpful. We will continue to eat there. Great experiences!

Great view, mediocre food.

Flavorless sauces on our fish and scallops. Bacon not properly rendered. Prawns in the appetizer were rubbery.

You’re there for the view and it delivers in a huge way. However, was not worth the $50/person price tag - would not return.

Another wonderful visit to the Spinnaker. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the Bay Area and we are never disappointed. We started with cocktails and relaxed for a little while before ordering our lunch. We both had chowder to start which is always good and I had the filet of sole dore which was cooked perfectly. My husband also had filet of sole and he asked that it was prepared dry without any sauce and he said that it was great as usual. The view is always amazing but yesterday was a spectacularly clear day making the City look gorgeous. We watched seals playing in the Bay all during our lunch. Valet parking is so nice and the valet is always especially nice. Service was excellent and we are looking forward to our next visit!

The only good thing about this restaurant was the view. The food was horrible. For the price they were charging we expected so much more. There were only 3 tables in the entire restaurant and our food took forever to come out. My appetizer came to the table at least 15 minutes before my husband’s did. We were very disappointed that our first evening get away to Sausalito was such a negative experience in terms of our dinner choice.

I’ve been coming to the Spinnaker ever since childhood-many long years ago! It is still a lovely place to dine. There’s a wonderful menu, a gorgeous view and great service. I always bring out-of-town visitors to The Spinnaker because I know they’ll have a fantastic meal and a beautiful Sausalito experience. If you love fish, try the Sandabs or the Petrale Dore. You won’t be disappointed!

Great views and we were very excited for a special birthday celebration in a place we hadn’t experienced before. 30 minutes after we ordered, our waiter had to ask us again what my husband had ordered as the order was clearly lost so we waited a long time for our food. And when it arrived I was served the wrong item (there are two scallop dishes and I got the second one which wasn’t what I had asked for.) My kids liked their meals and the mousse cake for dessert was very good, but overall we were disappointed with both the service and the food for the price. We did enjoy the beautiful view and appreciated getting a very nice table since they knew it was a birthday!
