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

I was very excited for their crab sandwich and was disappointed with the taste, quantity which lead to the value of what was served. The rest of the family thought that the food was just OK. Service was good and I wish I could say great view but then again you are staring into fog... not there fault.

I went with a friend for lunch and it was amazing. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful (see photos) but the outside, sitting on the deck over the ocean was absolutely breathtaking. We were almost close enough to touch the sails of the sailboats as they went by! I was really hungry so chose the half pound hamburger and... More

Service was spectacular. View is awesome BUT food was good at "great" prices. My chicken was dry with not much flavor and calamari was good. Cheese plate was very good.
