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

We have visited this restaurant several times over the years. We went on a recent afternoon to sit on the deck and watch the Blue Angels. A friend was visiting from New York. since it's reincarnation to it's current name, which is the name it had originally, the food has gone down hill. and the service is lacking. our friend... More

The waterfront location enticed us to Trident, and although the view was beautiful the restaurant left much to be desired. I guess I was expecting a more upscale experience - the menu was average (no creative dishes - very standard fare) and the food was only passable. My husband's seafood pasta dish was equivalent to what I'd expect in a... More

Nice place! Amazong view on deck. Terrible service. I had to call a server after 20 minutes of no service. It took more 10 minutes to someone take my order. Even my check was wrong. Try another one and dont waste your time.

We took a short walk from our hotel to The Trident for dinner after checking in around 9pm on a Saturday night in Sausalito. The restaurant looks great outside and inside, and we were able to get outdoor seating overlooking the Bay with a spectacular view of San Francisco and the ferries coming and going in the twilight. Just gorgeous.... More

On the way to what we expected to be a late dinner on the Napa Wine Train, we stopped for a quick bite, some chowder, a few oysters but mostly a view of the water, at Trident, an old favorite of our friends. A table near the water would be 30+ minutes away but we were quickly seated at a... More

This was a wonderful surprise. I'd eaten at Trident about 12 years ago and recall not being impressed. Today I had one of the best meals that I can remember. I had the heirloom salad with grilled salmon. I will savor the memory of it until I soon return. The service was impeccable. I sat on the rail and had... More

Our daughter takes us to the Trident when we're in town. We like the great view of the bay and the City. The food here today was very good; however, the service was very slow and we waited for a long time for our order. We had to ask if we'd been forgotten. We still will be back since this... More

Too often, restaurants that have great view, therefore are tourist attractions, don't have great food. The Trident had delicious fish tacos. Grilled, and very nicely grilled. The fish and chips were fine if one likes beer battered fish. I tend not to so my opinion of them being only okay probably isn't fair. Our waitress was great - fun to... More

After visiting Muir Woods my wife and I decided to check out Sausalito. At one end of what might be called tourist row was the Trident. We stopped in for lunch. We were seated quickly near a window with a great view of the San Francisco skyline and Alcatraz. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and the bay was full... More
