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.

Our niece suggested we try this restaurant since we were always frequenting the same ones. You could say we were in a restaurant "rut" and this little gem was just what we needed. We have brought several guest here and gone back many times. We love the mussels and fresh bread which is a meal in itself. Order a Savignon blanc and we were set. They have seating indoors and out and it looks over the marina. Occasionally you see a sea lion or two. Also, the crab enchilada was divine! Order two and take one home for lunch the next day. They have so many choices that it would take many visits to go through the entire menu!

We had a great time. We asked for a couple of beers and a Crab chouder which was delicious. The service was really good. A place to chill out.

We went here to have a good meal by the waterfront and got just what we were looking for! Not the most reasonably priced place, but it is a great location.

This was my first time here. We used to lived in Sausalito but moved to the peninsula. Found the restaurant via friends who have gone a lot. The wine is priced just right and nice selection, mussels are to die for, chopped salad great and sand dabs outstanding. Finished with beignets., perfect. But all night the waiter kept turning on our outdoor heater. Only to have the waitress and head guy ( in a green shirt talking into his tie all night) come over and turn it off saying it was not our heater. Then we'd get cold and turn in on, they'd come by and shut it off. We even explained how it really worked contrary to the green shirt manager who said it didn't. The waiter kept laughing all night. But it was very disturbing how mr green shirt denied the obvious and why did he do this to us who spent over $250? Very frustrating to the customer.

I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed what you ordered and loved the mussels so much, Mike. However, I do apologize for the confusion with the heater. We want you to be comfortable while enjoying our delicious food, and it sounds like we might have made that more difficult than it should have been. There must have been a miscommunication among our staff, and I'll make sure to bring your comments to everyone's attention. As always, thank you for the feedback -- we can't wait to have you back again soon.

Sincerely,
Peter Demarest

A friend introduced us to this establishment whilst we were visiting San Francisco. The Crab Chowder was excellent and the service was first class.
