Service was ok. Food was not great. I ended up choosing a vegetable platter for dinner. Waiter was inexperienced and nervous. Decent water views.

Lunch on a wet day in California. .very warm welcome. We had a lovely table overlooking the bay. Generous portions of fish & chips & gorgeous desserts. Special thanks to our server Joji...very attentive without being intrusive..we were not rushed over our meal. Would recommend if you visit Sausalito.

Had lunch at the Trident after cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking your bike requires a 3 USD deposit. Staff was not really clear about waiting time for the table nor were they very friendly. This is a shame as the Trident serves pretty good food and has a fantastic view over the Bay area. Doubt if I would... More

Four of us were looking for a place to have a late lunch and decided to try the Trident. We were all very happy with our choice. To start, the views of the city skyline, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Island were very nice. Service and food were very good. From the salads to burgers we all enjoyed our choices.... More

We stopped here for dinner after taking the ferry back from San Francisco on Saturday evening. We didn't have a reservation but we didn't have to wait for a table. We sat on the deck with amazing views of the city and the lights on the Bay bridge. As an added bonus there were fireworks on the Bay for fleet... More

We love this place purely for the views whilst you eat. We visited 7 years ago and managed to make it back this trip. Views are incredible. Our server quickly found us a high chair for our 15 month old. There wasn't a great kids selection and we didn't feel it was overly child friendly however that aside I ordered... More

This is an older restaurant built out over the water in Sausalito. The location is great, a short walk from the ferry. The building is beautiful with lots of character and an outside dining deck. The views of the water and San Francisco are more than awesome! Amazing! We met for drinks and happy hour. The drinks were fine and... More

Incredible view and good food. Rest after a long bike ride crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. Attention: if you're going to park your bike and eat there, be careful with the bike parking guy and GET the ticket for the bike, otherwise you will have to pay for parking.

A wonderful bar/restaurant where you can park your bicycle and pop in for a bite to eat and a pint. My wife had the chicken burger and I went with the classic beef burger. Both meals were great and the service was fantastic.

We stumbled across this little gem as someone in town suggest we go down here for the day. It's quite a trip from San Francisco but well worth it! It was by far the best food we had while travelling in San Francisco and the service was great. It was an incredible view and very clean! The best fish and... More
