Visiting this place was absolutely unplanned, we ended up here on a rainy Thursday evening after the place we wanted to eat at was already closed.
Boy, what a lucky coincidence this was.
This place is an absolute gem, a must visit if you are visiting the Bay area.
Scott, our waiter was super professional, very polite, knowledgeable about wine and menu items and he made great recommendations.

The atmosphere is very relaxed yet elegant, and the views of the bay, San Francisco and the Bay Bridge are unrivalled.

The food was just perfect, portions are very generous and the ingredients are fresh and very high quality.

Prices are reasonable especially comparing to the ridiculous prices and non existent service that you get in San Francisco.

Thank you Spinnaker team for the lovely dinner, it made our last night in area very special!
Scott: you are a star, fab service, thanks a lot!

This centrally located Sausalito restaurant offers a full bar and a quiet and airy setting from which to enjoy sweeping views of Sausalito’s Richardson Bay and the central bay beyond. This somewhat hidden restaurant is well worth the 3 minute walk from the Sausalito ferry dock.

The Spinnaker has a wide variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees to choose from. The food is fresh and tastes wonderful. Crab Louie salad is great and a nice size. The fish and chips (chips are actually small cut French fries) and the petrale are all good choices. The place is beautiful and a nice ambiance.
Some of the wait staff need to be given training!!! They need training on how to serve and even pour water - the ones who served us would reach over the table, even while we were trying to eat or talk. What happened to manners and mannerly service??!
However, the view was spectacular of the bay, and watching the ferry boats come and go, as well as the sail boats!!

Spent a couple of hours in Sausalito and we picked this restaurant for our Lunch. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. Had the light lunch crab cake which comprised of a clam chowder, crab cakes and fries. The tartar sauce was amazing so I saved it for my fries.
