We enjoyed our dinner, the beautiful view, and excellent/friendly waiter, Gary. Kept expecting to see Don Draper walk in, as the decor is vintage 60s. Valet parking was handy on a busy Sunday.

The food at The Spinnaker is always good but never great. The view and location are unbeatable though as the restaurant offers a stunning view of SF and the entire bay. Worth trying if you're in Sausalito and looking for a nice place for lunch...More

The clam chowder was wonderful as was the view of San Francisco. The shrimp quesadillas were overcooked, but stuffed with shrimp. The salmon salad was very good. The prices are somewhat high. The worst part was the $43.00 parking ticket for parking in a city...More

This was a pleasant venue with plenty of fresh seafood options. Very good soups and salads and not overly crowded. Seating with scenic views of the house boats is available. Relaxing atmosphere.
