The building looks like it's out of the 50's---but it holds up stunningly with it's natural redwood and panoramic glass directly on the water in Saulsalito. Good menu and the food is excellent, as is the service.
Wonderful spot for family gatherings and romantic dinners.

Went here because of the reviews in Trip Advisor. Would give an A-plus for location. Wanted to sit in an area where the view was better and less cramped. I only get to enjoy such a view every few years. Told that the tables were all "taken", even though they were empty and no one ever came the hour we were there. So we sat in our packed-in table.
The server gave us menus that had food particles stuck on them. The entire time he waited on us, he had a white towel over his shoulder that had food stains. Maybe this is a new normal.
The whole restaurant looked "tired" and dated. The cushions on the chairs were worn and stained. The bathrooms were so 80's.
The food was very good. My dining companions said theirs was as well, too. One of my companions said the service was pretty stuffy and less friendly than usual.
So, we decided to spend less time (and money) there for after dinner.

This is the fourth time that we have visited The Spinnaker Restaurant over the [past four years. Not easy when you live some 5000 miles away. This time we took our youngest son with his wife and they were delighted, the view which is just magnificent along with a great menu led to a wonderful experience. The service was impeccable, the food absolutely delicious and at a very reasonable price. Go try it, it's great and I look forward to our next visit to the aarea.

I actually emailed ahead to get a good table here and it was worth it. We had a table at the far end of the restaurant which gives a view both ways across to San Francisco and to Tiberon and back to the other end of Sausalito and beyond. Wherever you sit you have magnificent views due to the huge plate glass windows. We had a window table so were doubly blessed food was wonderful. It was VERY busy even in April.

Had a late lunch in this fantastic location. We had a wonderful view of the city of San Francisco.
The food was very good and nicely served.
The service was professional.
The place was no noisy so we could talk and enjoy the view and food.
Definitly a place to return to.
