My wife and I made reservations for our 25th anniversary. When we arrived after nearly 60 miles of driving, we were greeted with parking in the street unless you wanted to pay someone to park your car in the restaurants parking lot not 20 yards away. Playing frogger with traffic to get to the restaurant, we made it inside. Expecting to have a quiet, romantic evening dinner, the staff sat us next to a large party who were noisy and were consuming large amounts of alcohol. The food was under cooked, tasteless, and over priced. The waitress who was working hard was seldom seen not helping the large party. From the time we sat down, we waited for water, our order, and our check. The noise was so bad, I couldn't have a conversation with my wife sitting directly across from me. The seat we had was facing the sun and I literally had to wear sun glasses during dinner. It really wasn't worth the hassles. There are much better options in the Seattle area. Long John Silvers would have been an improvement.
WE LOVE SALTY'S! The portions are a nice size and always very tasty. The atmosphere is sophistocated, yet very comfotable. With the impecable view, reserve a table by the window, and this is a great place to bring guests who are visiting seattle. Bri
It was the night from hell. The food is way overpriced for what you get. Service was below expectations for a high quality restaurant. The view is beautiful. They ran out of Alaskan King Crab and shattered a full wine glass. No apologies from any one. They were happy to bring the bill with a smile.
I am partial as I lived down the street and Sunday brunch was where you could find me. View is a views go, spectacular depending on what you are seeking. Service was exceptional, nothing lacking. Seeing I have prior bias I will just say delicious.
Overpriced for an average rate seafood cuisine. Pretty much you
pay for the view. The drinks were good but so are any other
restaurants. To make our dining experience worst we were served
some bad spoiled tasting mussels. I thought it just me but I also
saw my wife spit out the mussel meat on the plate. Of course
from there we lost our appetite for more food.
