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.

“Let the Vacation Begin!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This was the first place we found after getting our rental car and crossing the bridge. We were starving and ready for our California adventure to begin. Truthfully, we sort of grabbed the nearest thing we could find, and...what a find! Sweeping expanse of glass in the cheerful, bustling dining room let in the gorgeous sunshine and the blue water of the bay...the prosecco was cold and delicious...and our lunch of crab, mussels, and shrimp was just superb. Loved the decor---antique children's toys hung from the ceiling added a whimsical touch.

“The portion size for the Dungeness crab was very small for the price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I ordered the Dungeness crab, and the flavor was excellent. But for $24.00, there was very little crab meat.
The service was good, and it was nice to sit on the patio.

“Always one of the first places we go to when we return to Sausalito!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hands down one of our favorite restaurants around! We love everything about it.............from the location, the service, the setting and most of all the food! We have gone to Salitos just for a bowl of their crab soup and bread just to enjoy the atmosphere and sitting out by the water. We also enjoy the dungenous crab. This most recent visit, my daughter, her fiancee, my husband, and myself came to enjoy a beautiful Sunday afternoon.. We all had a salad and shared the large order of dungenous crab. We were not able to finish all of the crab. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed! They also have Rumbar wine........one of our favorites! Oh........and did I mention their bread?!?!?!?!

“excellent cheese platter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We stopped in for a late afternoon snack and found ourselves enjoying a delightful cheese platter. The variety of cheeses offered was fantastic, I like all but one...the service was friendly, and although it was coming up on the dinner hour we never felt rushed. We had a great view of the bay. I enjoyed my time here and the food.
