Description: The Trident, formerly 'Horizons", is now open!! We recently completed our remodel and upstairs Skydeck addition showcasing the most amazing views! In January 1981, this beautiful space was revived into Horizons restaurant. Inside is an incredible recipe of art and architecture, complemented with a resemblance of an old yacht. The ceiling mural was original to the Trident and painted by Dave Richards, creator of Janis Joplin’s infamous 1965 Porsche Cabriolet. On the outside deck, discover one of the most stunning restaurant waterfront views on the west coast, which boasts the skyline of San Francisco, Angel Island and Alcatraz. Join us for brunch, lunch or dinner

Had dinner tonight at the Trident to celebrate a birthday. The place was empty! It's the holidays, and everywhere you look it's packed with people eating and drinking and having fun. There was one other table of 5 or 6 and another table of 1. Is there something we should know????

We ate outside on the patio right on the bay. Beautiful view, delicious food and outstanding wait staff. The staff made the dinner fun for my 10 and 7 year old too!!!

Have been a couple of times with colleagues and friends, tried hard to give it a second chance in terms of food quality and customer service but I'm afraid it never really got there for my standards. The view is incredible, really. Ou feel you could almost touch the city from the outside terrace. But service is discontinuous, food is... More

We sailed across to Sausalito from San Fransisco on a very hot day. Sausalito is a lovely little town to visit with a main street which is full of shops, cafes and restaurants. We chose the Trident because you can sit outside looking over the water to San Fransisco but all the tables were full so we were shown to... More

I was really surprised by this restaurant, upon looking at it i thought it would be very posh and expensive. The meals were decent pricing with decent portion sizes, the service was amazing with different types of people being waiters and bartenders. We were welcomed in with a friendly face and given an amazing booth looking over the bay. The... More

We heard this restaurant was taken over by the owners of the Buena Vista, another favorite, so we gave it a try at dinner. The food was exceptional and service was good. The view is really the star of the show here. I really loved the interior. The owners were smart to capitalize on the restaurant's famous past. It's like... More

Took the ferry over from San Francisco pier 41 for lunch. Trident is a short walk from the ferry dock in Sausalito. We considered eating at Janis Joplin's favorite table at the Trident but the weather was so nice we opted to eat on their deck. Good food and nice wines. Great views of the Golden Gate bride and the... More

I don't usually write negative reviews, I just assume the establishment is having an off day. This time, however, the staff at Trident really went above and beyond to ruin our dining experience. We arrived late morning on a Monday, the restaurant was not at all busy and we were about the 2nd table seated out on the patio, which... More
