We went to Salty's at Alki to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were treated like royalty from the minute we got there until the minute we picked up our car from the valet and left. The service really was amazing. The food was wonderful, and the water and City views are not to be missed. This is a great dining... More

Perfect place to celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary, the ambiance was perfect, overlooking Seattle at night was just amazing. The food was good, little pricey but the service made it worth.

Hearing how wonderful the brunch was and having been to many before, we expected the best seafood brunch. A great disappointment as the oysters were okay but the other seafood needed a magnifying glass to see the tiny shrimp, clams and mussels. Being a seafood buffet and costing over $200 for 4 of us, we expected more seafood and less... More

The view of the Seattle cityscape from Salty's on Alki was simply stunning. A clear December night sky and warm temperatures really complimented the venue. We had a small function for two dozen folks. The appetizers were perfect. Bacon wrapped scallops, crab cakes and meatballs. Top shelf across the board. Dinner was salmon or steak. Again. Both were excellent. Will... More

They have the best Saturday/Sunday brunch I have been to. So much to choose from. Fabulous food, beachy atmosphere with a great view. The only down fall is that they tell you at time of reservation and at check in, to limit your stay to 1.5 hours. Even with our party of eleven! I find this extremely offending. We do... More

Enjoyed the Salty's Thanksgiving buffet. Amazing food, great staff, free valet parking. It was terrific. Althought it did cost $196 for two adults and two kids.

We've been dining at Salty's for years but, since moving to the 'burbs, the opportunities to dine here have been fewer and farther in between (thank you, Seattle traffic). However, it's still on the short list for special occasions (the view is killer and the staff are generally very helpful). We ventured out on a Monday night for a birthday... More

We just got home from lunch at Salty's, a "treat" courtesy of a long-time West Seattleite. I really wish she had used her money elsewhere, we waited for 20 minutes for our (reserved) table to be prepped, a nonntime reservation and the place was barely 1/4 full. The food, when it finally came, was tepid and uninspiring, at best. The... More
