Went for a business dinner and the views are what you are paying for. While not bad, it was overpriced. The chowder was amazing. The rest of my meal was good but nothing out of this world. Still, that view.

This is a Seattle icon. The view cannot be beat and the brunch is amazing. If you decide to go make sure you call ahead and make a reservation. You should also request a window seat. It is a little pricy so be prepared for that.

We were a bit reluctant to go here because of the price, but we read what they offered on the menu, and had to go. It's worth the money if you're going to stuff your face with crab, shrimp, and oysters. Make sure you make a reservation. I think the earlier spots are better since the place isn't too crowded...

I went here with family and the food was great. We always enjoy eating here. I prefer to eat here on Saturdays, during the buffet time. It is usually less busy than Sunday. The shrimp, oysters, crab, prime rib, salmon salad, crepes, salads, pastas and desserts are always delicious. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Went for a special occasion and wasn't disappointed. The waitstaff was attentive, knowledgeable and not a bother - just what you want for an intimate dinner. The city lights across the water were dazzling. The menu features information on where each item is sourced which I really appreciated. The clam appetizer was delicious and as silly as it sounds their... More

The views were great!!! The restaurant was nice as well. We had the trio for our appetizer and that was amazing the only complaint I have is on the calamari it was a little over fried. We had the lobster tail and the 12oz New Yorker and both were just ok. But the place is worth the visit if not... More

On my first visit to seattle my husband surprised me with a waterfront table at saltys. The view of the city is beautiful. On a clear summer day you can see the downtown coastline, and watch ferries come & go. This is a favorite spot, even among locals. I've lived here 9yrs now and most holidays it's hard to get...
