Description: Salito's has been a long standing part of the Sausalito landscape--Zack's in the eighties, then Margaritaville and most recently Paradise Bay. The new look is fresh, bright and full of casual ambience. Large decks overlook the water and the beauty of the area is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy one of several refreshing Nick & Nora Cocktail Specials available from the full bar or just have a Cafe du Monde chicory coffee with freshly-made beignets A casual bite or a full-on feast--either one or something in between is the perfect Salito's experience. Signature dishes include: * House-made kettle bread served with Straus butter * Whole roasted Dungeness crab * Sizzling iron-skillets of mussels, shrimp and crab * USDA Prime, prime rib * Seafood specialties * Crab chowder, interesting salads and creative sandwiches Sitting on beautiful Richardson Bay in Sausalito, the blue sky and sparkling water are the perfect setting for an afternoon or evening of dining al fresco at Salito's.

“Go for the view and the crab dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Can't beat casual dining right by the water. We saw a seal and lots of birds. Apparently, a local sea otter hangs out there as well. As for the meal, the crab salad and crab enchiladas were both prepared perfectly. Friendly service and a great atmosphere make this an excellent place for drinks and dinner in Sausalito.

“No local, fresh fish. Bad service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Besides frozen crab dishes and no local fresh fish (just California oysters), the service was bad. 35 minutes to cook an enchilada?! Great view if that's all you want. I will say the frozen crab enchilada was good...but not enough to mae up for the poor service and lack of effort by the management to correct the sever's shortcomings

“Great seafood with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch at Salito's recently after cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. The atmosphere is relaxed so we didn't feel out of place in our cycling gear. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the water. As the restaurant specialises in crab dishes (but there are plenty of other dishes to chose from) we had the crab cakes followed by a skillet of hot dungeness crab to share. Everything was delicious! The only thing i could fault was that the crab cake stater was smaller than we had expected for the price, but was virtually pure crab rather than padded out with potato etc so this probably explains the price. Service was attentive and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Good food for the adults and lots of choices for the children. We thoroughly enjoyed it as a family of four adults and three children.
