First let me say the location of this restaurant is IDEAL. Perched on the water's edge looking straight across from downtown Seattle - the Space Needle, Ferris Wheel, etc - it is a sight to behold as dusk sets in and the night lights up from downtown.
Since this is the sight as you pull in to Salty's, your expectations run sky high - and unfortunately, the interior simply doesn't live up to the location. We were a group of about 12, so had a private dining room on the lower floor. While it was nice to have the privacy, the room was dated, carpet was faded and in rough shape, wall art was needing an update, etc., etc. It certainly left you with the impression that the restaurant had seen better days.
The food as well was average at best - the halibut special was served uniformly over-cooked and dry, while others suggested their meals were "fine" but not special. The cream that was on the table from our arrival was in fact spoiled, and showed its true colours when spilled into the coffee later that night. No one partook of dessert.
It's too bad - the location certainly holds promise for a spectacular dining experience- but fails to deliver.
