The Spinnaker - Sausalito
The views are great but the restaurant is showing signs of age and food was subpar.
We go to Spinnaker when we have guests in town. It is a great view of San Francisco as night falls on the city. The food has always been good and the price of about $30 per entree is not bad. The only problem is that the wait staff seems not very attentive. The wait person would come to the table, forget something and then disappear for a long time. While we do not want the wait staff to be all over us, we do like some service. If this was the first time that this happened to us, we would attribute it to bad luck on having that server. But after we had a problem with getting service attention, we remembered that we had the same issue the last couple of times we were there. It is a balance. The Food was good, the view excellent but attention to the customer was marginal.
My second time there, and I’ll return whenever I go back to Sausalito . The food and the views are unbelievable
We had a wonderful experience at The Spinnaker for my father’s 93rd birthday! Food was excellent and gave us wonderful sitting by the windows.
The view, the service & the food are worth the price. The Spinnaker has remained a great place to enjoy a meal.
I was very happy with our server, Steve, who obviously was experienced and helped us choose our wine and food calmly on a very busy evening.
Waitress needs better communication with kitchen and have better manners with clients
Excellent service ,food was much more than expected, had great views of the bay,waiter was Incredible nice to the both of us,getting back to the food large portions prepared beautifully, exceptional great tasting. Highly recommend this restaurant
Lovely Mother’s Day Lunch. Even though it was super busy, they did a great job. They even gave each Mother a long stem rose. The view can’t be beat!
Took our mom there for Mothers’ Day. Everything was great. The host was friendly and efficient , even while he was bombarded with people trying to get tables without resies on that crazy day! Our waiter was so nice and calm. Our food came out quickly and perfectly cooked. Really nice experience as always!
The food was delicious a great value for Mother’s Day brunch. Despite the fact that it is a large restaurant, it is so well designed that we could comfortably speak and hear one another.
Will definitely be returning.
Have been going her since 1962. The restaurant needs updating.
The view is spectacular. The crab bisque soup is the best. The service impeccable.
Considering the volume of customers on Mother’s Day, the service and quality of the entrees was exceptional! The long-stemmed red rose was much appreciated😊
My 97 yr old mother enjoyed everything!
Excellent place to take a large family for Mother’s Day celebration!! Easy transition from bar to dining area. Clean , good food great service, and of course the view. Only minus- the outdated decor
We celebrated birthday's and Mother's day and it was wonderful!
Excellent service, spectacular views and very convenient parking can’t trump uninspired food offerings. Too many choices on the menu, non of which were memorable in our party of six. Still, we all agreed we would revisit for the “on the water” views.
As usual the Spinnaker delivers an exceptional location and consistent food. All in our party were satisfied, but the Paella left a little to be desired. The Petrale and Fish and Chips were the highlight along with the view.
The seafood and salad dishes couldn't be any better and the view is one of the very best on the globe.
As always, the food is excellent, service is professional and the view is incredible.
Birthday for my son, he had a great time
The view overlooking the San Francisco Bay is stunning. Being surrounded by water 270° around is always very special. The service was perhaps as bad as I've had in many years. Very long delays, and absent follow up all requests we're more than annoying. Having a beautiful surrounding made up much for the absent service. The food was good but clearly not great. It's a restaurant that relies heavily on its view and ambience. The food is adequate at best and the service is absent at most... There's so many other great and better choices.
Love the place... old school atmosphere and great views.
Great views and service. Very nostalgic. Back in time yet modern. Thanks.
Great SF view and good fish
We enjoyed our dinner
Food was good. The view was amazing. The waitress was not the best.....no personality. We had to ask for something twice and suggested an upgrade in a wine that was twice the price of our original request, not informing us ahead of time.
It's a go to place for my special occasions and special people. They also handle large groups exceeding well. Good hood, good service, Great Views of the bay. Beet feet over here and experience it for yourself.
Very average food. Very disappointing for a place like this
Second visit here and great views and fab food. Waiter this time was not as great as last time .
Simply elegant and brunch was super.spectacular views of entire bay,absolutely beautiful.first class service,ambiance was at top of the restaurant charts.
Love the Spinnaker for many reasons! Parking is easy, food is great, service is excellent, view is incredible! My one wish would be that they had more wines by the glass available. Great wine list, but not many available by the glass. Will definitely go back despite that one deficiency!
Celebrated a birthday here which was perfect! The service was great ( thanks Gary) and the good was even better. Definitely recommend this place.
Living on opposite coasts it is always great Catching up with family. Good food, good time, great view
Spinnaker never disappoints. I go there specifically for the lovely service, food and I don't forget the view of the most beautiful vista in the world. I always have (when on the menu) the Dungeness Crab Louie, which is perfection. VERY generous with the crab and just the right amount of salad. (Often restaurants skimp on the crab, which is placed on top of a whole head of lettuce. Not appreciated!!) The service was thoughtful and impeccable. I look forward to my next visit to Sausalito. Tourists to SF: Take Golden Gate Transit bus #30, which will drop you off in Sausalito right near the "driveway" to the Spinnaker. It only takes 20-25 minutes. Why drive? But, first find out where to meet this GGT bus (which is not MUNI).
Very nice restaurant on a sunny location with view to the Bay
Outstanding, the food was great and everyone was happy with their meal.
Beautiful Views and fabulous food!
Exceptional service and the food is delicious. We made a last minute reservation amd they were on time and very accomodaing. The view is majestic!
