This restaurant is located close to the water but off the main drag at Sausalito, so appeared to be very quiet at lunchtime compared to the other more obvious places the best of which had waiting lines for tables. It is a quite formal setting and service, but the service was very efficient and the food was well presented and... More

Amazing view. Great staff. Friendly and chatty bar man. Beautiful food. Highly recommend. Especially going for a earlier dinner to watch the sunset over San Fran. It was a perfect night to finish our trip.

After returning from Muir Woods via bus, walked over for an early dinner (around 5:00) at this waterfront restaurant and had a very relaxing and tasty meal prior to boarding the Sausalito ferry for SF. Food was prepared perfectly. Service was a tad slow, but that was okay as we wanted some relaxation and never felt rushed. The view is... More

At the end of the bike ride from pier 39, we had lunch at The Spinnaker. Could have had some more bike parking area, however, after that, they were very accommodating for cyclists. A slightly dated location, but the views are world class. Staff are friendly but very traditional & the food was good without being great. Don't get me... More

Ended up in here as they had free valet parking so a good start. Restaurant was clean and well run. We ate in the bar not the restaurant side. Floor to ceiling windows overlooking San Fran bay amazing view. Food was ok and service was excellent with a nice atmosphere.

Went to this restaurant on the word of one of my best friends. The food and the view were truly amazing. Had crab, and it was wonderful, along with the clam chowder. The view was breath taking to see. Highly recommend this as a very good restaurant.

Went there for cocktails as I was staying nearby in downtown, and the menu looked very good, so I went back for dinner. Courteous and attentive service, along with superb food almost always make for a wonderful meal
