We arrived one lunchtime without a reservation, but we were quickly seated on the terrace overlooking the Richardson Bay. After hiring bicycles in downtown San Francisco, and a long cycle over the bridge, it was the perfect spot to refuel with a cocktail or two! We saw seals and a dolphin (whom we decided to name Patrick!) pop up in... More

We rode our bikes over from San Francisco, and we stopped at the Trident for lunch. Our waiter, Jeremy, was very attentive and gave wonderful recommendations from the menu. We chose to sit outside as it was a beautiful day and the atmosphere was so relaxing being right on the water. We enjoyed our meal so much, that when we... More

My wife and I found this spot on a quick stop in Sausalito and loved it. We sat on their outdoor deck and had drinks and appetizers during their happy hour. They have heaters out there as well so you can enjoy sitting on the water even when the weather gets chilly. The service was great and the bartender and... More

We walked across the bridge and then to Sausalito. We looked for and found a restaurant with great views of San Francisco across the bay that also had a vegetarian dish and The Trident met both. We had the Tomato Bisque soup first and then one chicken dinner and one vegetarian dish. Beer was good but house made lemonade was... More

We were happy to land at The Trident after biking over the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a beautiful night on the water and everything we had was delicious. I loved the history of this place - some of the old pictures and menus were in the lobby.

The Trident is exceptionally located on the waterfront overlooking Angel island, the bay with San Francisco in the distance. Lunch here was not exceptional, but good. Salmon sandwich was nice, but huge (I'm British); seafood pasta and quinoa salad were both fabulous; bowl of chowder was small and had to be sent back as it was not hot when it... More

We had lunch there be cause we wanted to visit Sausalito on our way to SF. We were on the terrace to tale advantage of the view, and this was very pleasant. Food is good and there is a good choice, but the main interest is to be outside with the view. Nice service.

The food was about average. There are however views from every table. The restaurant is on three levels with only one row of tables per level, affording each a nice view of the water, Tiburon and Angel Island

I was going to have a Mai Tai...but then I saw it...the Bloody Mary. For $20 you get a delicious drink plus two huge prawns, about five slices of bacon and assorted veggies as garnish. It's like an appetizer and a cocktail all in one. This place is absolutely perfect on a nice day. Lovely deck dining overlooking the bay... More
