Had dinner with a friend for her birthday. (Free birthday cake!) Food was great. Service was awesome. Servers even tell you where to take a good photo with the view of the city and they will take it for you. Very friendly staff. Had outdoor seating. The view was fantastic.. both daytime and night time.

The food was amazing, service excellent, view breathtaking, but the noise level was so high at our table we couldn't converse except wtih difficulty. But I highly recommend it if you don't have a group that wants to talk!

Always Great food and service every time we bring guests to Salty's. One of our dinner guest is an owner of 2 highly successful Italian restaurants in Central Coast California. He was very much pleased with the freshness of all the seafood on the Grand Seafood Platter, the clam chowder and the Halibut dinner special. We had a fabulous time and our waiter was so helpful in our food selections. The view is awesome! You cannot go wrong with Salty's.

We Stayed at the Camlin Hotel in Seattle and Salty's provided Transportation to and from the Restaurant at no charge.
We had a beautiful harborview table with spectacular views.
Our Server was great as was the Food. Not cheap but I think you get what you pay for.
Overall - Most impressed and will return next time I am in Seattle

My husband and I went to Salty’s to celebrate our anniversary. Dane, our waiter was very kind, courteous, and prompt. He explained everything in detail, worked around my husband’s allergies, and had a great attitude overall.
He brought us a celebratory cake slice, a gift from Salty’s for our anniversary! It was so lovely and such a kind gesture that we’ll never forget!
It was a lovely experience, I’m so glad we chose Salty’s for our anniversary dinner.

Thank you

We had a lovely window table and guests from Alberta. We went for their "Crabby Monday". It was our sixth Crabby Monday dinner : ) Our Dungeness crab had small legs and overcooked dry meat. It tasted good but certainly was substandard compared to any fresh cooked crab dinner we have ever had at Salty's. Usually the crab has nice large legs and is perfectly cooked. Our waitperson was super sweet, adorable, well meaning and scattered. She forgot multiple things and had to be reminded for items we asked for including one beverage. We had to do a bit of self serve clearing of our crab shells as well. Overall I was really disappointed in my visit. We did not send our crab back because we did not want to wait for a re-do.

Grilled King Salmon, Chilled Prawn Cocktail, cups of Seafood Chowder and a Copper River Salmon entree. Each was very fresh & cooked perfectly. Chowder was wonderful with a drizzle of Sherry.
Manhattan and Old Fashioned were excellent.
Best city view of Seattle anywhere. Service was attentive and professional. Highly recommend Salty’s at Alki.

The place was nice. But, their prices are like a 5-star or better but their food is 4-stars at best.

The wait and bus staff were excellent. The seating layout could have been better. They did a good job of giving most tables a view.

There are a lot of stairs everywhere. Most did not have markings on extra lights. It could be difficult for a person who is walking challenged to get a nice table.

When you are shown to your table, you are walked right past the kitchen. There were several dishes of food sitting at waist level in very easy reach.

Just a few observations

We had a nice window seat and our food and service was great. The price is a bit steep but, my wife and I had a great dinner that was not rushed and we couldn't complain about a thing if we wanted too. So a little high on the price and very high on quality of both the service and food. We were lucky enough to experience a great lightening storm from our seats. Will defiantly will book this the next time we are in Seattle, This is a must do every trip.

My husband and I had a dinner special for the night. It was a coho salmon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My daughter had a steelhead lavender salad. Their dishes are always consistent. Also we appreciated for music and noise levels that didn’t interrupt our conversations.

We had the great luck to have Ignacio as our server; he made our dinner so much more special! Great recommendations, great sense of humor, and amazing tableside flambé. Food was amazing, we had the grilled lobster and it was tender, perfectly cooked. Thanks chefs and thanks Ignacio! :) We will be back soon!

We came here for a birthday dinner and this place was definitely the right choice for this occasion! The Steelhead, Prawns ans Scallops were excellent and the staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive - also food allergies were kindly taken in consideration. The table with a great view of the skyline of Seattle was lovingly set with birthday decoration and after the main course we even got a birthay cake with a small candle - a really awesome surprise!
