The view of the city is spectacular. The food is average (not bad, not great). Heavy on the sauces. Very nice selection of wines from the region.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having dinner at Salty's on a recent trip to Seattle. They picked us up in a limo from the Westin where we were staying. The restaurant was outstanding. The view was really nice across the water to downtown Seattle. The service and the food was some of the best I have had... More

The waiters at Salty's are the best. One waiter named Ryan remembered our names from the first time we were there and what drinks we liked.If he was our waiter, as soon as we were seated he would see us and order our drinks. Unfortunately he left , but the other waiters and waitresses are also very good. We still... More

I wanted to enjoy seafood and unfortunately, there were three seafood dishes on the menu that had added meat, including bacon and sausage. Which left me with very little to choose from. My husband could only find the jidori chicken. Not what we expected.

They had everything from seafood of every type prime rib, hams, asian food, omelets, actually anything you can or would want in a high end buffet. The presentation of food was incredible. This is...

My husband went to Salty's on the recommendation of a friend that used to live in Seattle and we were not disappointed. We rode the water taxi from Pier 50 over. A word of caution this water taxi service's last trip back to the Pier 50 leaves at 7:30p so if you have a evening dinner reservation you will have... More

This is perhaps the best view you get in Seattle (including Space Needle). Skyline view after dark is priceless! This is also the main reason to visit Salty's. The food is ok, nothing more. Service is great though.

My niece's wedding reception was held in the down stairs area and we flowed in side and out onto the outside balconies. I'd only dined upstairs previously but if you want to hold an event I really recommend the dining space and outdoor decks on the water level. We were right across the bay from downtown Seattle so the views... More

This was at least my 2nd visit here for the brunch. Definitely worth a visit. Location super awesome with great view overlooking the water and city view (including space needle). Everything super tasty from breakfast items, prime rib, fresh oysters, crabs, etc. I never get a chance to try everything. I have yet to get try the omelette and pasta... More
