Super Tasty Brunch

I was there on a Sunday morning for brunch and it was so good! We called ahead and made reservations. I'm not sure if they take walk-ins, but I wouldn't risk it. The place was packed when we arrived and when we left. There are many food options for all kinds of cravings. The crab legs were really... read more

Went with a business group of 8 on a Tuesday evening. The view is spectacular. I loved watching the freighters come into the harbor and watching the fog descend over the city and then lift. You are paying for a view here. It was restaurant week in Seattle so they offered a 3 course meal for $30. Had reservations and... More

We had lunch there one afternoon on a day that the weather was cooperative. The view of the Seattle skyline is truly outstanding and worth making the effort to visit the restaurant. The service was exceptional. The food was very good, maybe a little pricey for lunch but given the ambiance, probably not unexpected. We were satisfied with the whole... More

We had dinner at Salty's at Alki Beach this evening and had the restaurant week menu. The seafood bisque was rich and delicate at the same time and delicious. Our entrée was seafood brochette, which had shrimp, scallop and salmon. The scallop was delicious, the shrimp was fine and the salmon was dried out. Dessert was the white cake and... More

We ate here for lunch on our last lunch in Seattle which was a Monday. The first thing that took us by surprise was the brilliant view we had from our table which over looked downtown Seattle and the lake. Our food was brilliant and came quickly and was hot. I had the tuna melt with truffle fries. Although it... More

The food was pretty good, the atmosphere is perfect. The ferry over from downtown was a good take and sitting outside was fun. It's a solid place to eat.
