Table not ready for 1 pm revs, but very busy!.
It was our first, but not our last time at Spinnaker's. We normally go to Scoma's for family gatherings, but decided to try something different. The menu on line looked great and the food turned out to me memorable and excellent. The waitstaff and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. The views were spectacular. Our only concern is that the entire restaurant is in dire need of refurbishing. We hope that will happen in the near future to make our next stop even nicer.
Wonderful view of the bay that enhances the dinning experience. The meals were excellent the service was great. The waiter had a wonderful sense of humor.
Visited the Spinnaker 28 years ago and came back for a reunion dinner with 5 friends. View was spectacular, complete with long-lasting rainbow. Waiter with 42 years of service was attentive, helpful, and superb. Ambiance was lovely for a 3-hour visit, uninterrupted and unhurried. Food was delicious and well presented with all 6 enjoying different appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Hope to come back sooner this time! Thanks!
The Spinnaker never, ever disappoints, but delivers a consistently top-notch dining experience, each and every time. And servers like ours -- Sue for this meal --are never outdone by anyone, anywhere. My friends had never been to Spinnaker, so there were thoroughly awed by the combination of the view, the service, the food, and the overall ambiance of the Spinnaker experience.
A restaurant in desperate need of a facelift. The view was the only great thing about it. For dining go elsewhere
What a wonderful place. I have been going there for years.
It stands the test if time. If you like great food, good value
even though it is Marin County, great service and wonderful ambience
then go here.
Enjoyed the service, food and view. The only surprise was that the chairs and other fabric covered items were frankly thread bare. Some of the dinning chairs actually had holes in the fabric. Very disappointing. Really needs an update.
The view is simply amazing and the food delicious!!
I was really surprised. The food was great and the prices were reasonable. Beautiful view!!
Lunch was yummy. I had the Cioppino and it was delish. Bathrooms could use some serious cleaning/bleach. View was spectacular as usual.
We have been customers of the Spinnaker restaurant since they opened in 1960. The view is always stunning of San Francisco and Oakland and the sail boats going by on the amazing
San Francisco Bay. The food is always excellent, and priced reasonably. We all love being there!
However, right now the Spinnaker desperately needs new carpet, all new upholstery and new window treatments, tables, chairs and surfaces. If necessary, maybe all those of us who have been customers for 50 years could organize a "crowd funding" website to aid this aging beauty, whom we love. The restaurant is always crowded so business is excellent, so what do we need to do to encourage the owners (original family owners) to take out a loan to fix up our favorite
waterfront meeting place for four generations of families! We love you, Ms. Spinnaker, and
will help with a fund raiser or whatever needs to happen to give you a makeover!
Always one of our favs! Incredible sea food, not a bad seat in the house - a view all around you. This is a must go in Sausalito!!! Very romantic 🌟
Drove from Sacramento for Mother's Day dinner. The restaurant was very lovely and the food delicious. Loved the view. I enjoy restaurants for the selection of food, the service, and ambiance/view. The Spinnaker-Sausalito has it all. Fancy dress/casual dress, groups/table for two, romantic/family - it just has it all. I've been to Sausalito so many times but never knew about this restaurant. I used to go to Horizons (which is now called something else), but I'm so glad that we went to The Spinnaker. I love ceiling to floor windows - especially since the view is spectacular. We will definitely return.
What a great view. The service was good and the food as well. We were here for mother's day as it is a favorite of my mom.
Views that are second to none. Ambience in need of big time upgrade. Food above average
It was very crowded this time. Their prices have gone up, making this only suitable for a special occasion. Due to the crowds, service was slower than normal. Food was still very good though.
Per server, frozen crab due to volume. They use sauces to cover the fish.
Dinner at the Spinnaker is always a treat for any special occaision. We keep coming back for a the tasty food and wonderful view and ambience.
Amazingly perfect. The best views in the entire city.
Our whole party enjoyed every aspect of our visit to the Spinnaker. The place is ideally located with views of San Francisco and Marin surrounded by water.
The menu choices each of us selected were superb; the comments following the first bites told that!
The server was friendly and attentive. His good humor was appreciated by all.
Our seafood meal was delicious. Our server Steve was the best! He made our dining experience even more enjoyable.
View is spectacular. Food was good but pricy for what was served.
Gorgeous day! Splendid view! Good food.
Literally one of our best dining experiences ever. Friendliest staff, the best service, jaw dropping views and truly delicious food in more than ample quantity. Could not have been happier. Beyond highly recommended.
The service was impeccable and the view terrific. We will go again.
A seafood restaurant with a beautiful view over San Francisco across the bay. Try and get window seats, but you’ll won’t be disappointed with the back benchers. The clam chowder , always good. Paella, was good but could have been a bit more “soupy” (was just a bit too dry).
I always enjoy the Spinnaker, the food is good and the view is awesome. I would have given it more stars but the restaurant is showing its age, it needs updating: the carpet is old and the restrooms need a total remodel. What a shame!
The spinnaker never disappoints. Love this place. Not a bad seat in the house
We visited The Spinnaker recently to celebrate a milestone birthday. We were visiting Sausalito and saw it was on the waterfront and has an incredible view of San Francisco so we decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately at a table with a picture-postcard view. The service was good, the food was excellent, and the prices were reasonable. We both enjoyed our dinners and would not hesitate to return. I recommend The Spinnaker for lunch or dinner if you are in Sausalito and want really good food at a reasonable price with an excellent ambiance.
Nelson was absolutely wonderful in giving us the perfect table for a BD celebration. Our service was fantastic, food delicious.....we’ll be back ASSP!
Soup was cold, appetizers were sub par! Donot recommend for dinner!!!
Brought friends from out of town. Lovely view, of course. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the Cobb Salad with shrimp and baby scallops. The salad was excellent, very generous serving and a large dish of blue cheese dressing on the side..... definitely recommend.
View magnificent; food so so. Service pretty good.
Ristorante molto elegante e situato in un punto strategico per una vista mozzafiato sulla baia e sullo skyline di San Francisco. Vivamente raccomandato specialmente per una cena romantica al tramonto.
Raccomandata la giacca per lui ed una eleganza sobria per lei.
Took two hours for lunch?
Great views- knowledgeable & efficient servers-
Very good food
Spectacular view of the city and bay. Broad seafood menu. The food was very good but not as inspiring as the setting.
We came here for a Birthday Dinner and we were not disappointed! Everything was excellent from the table, to the food, to the service. I would definitely recommend this spot for any occasion.
We made a reservation during our vacation in San Francisco. The entire experience was fantastic. The food was exceptional and there wasn’t a bad seat in the house (although we made our reservation right when they opened at 11, & got the best seat). Can’t say enough amazing things about this restaurant.
