Birthday celebration while on vacation in Seattle. Dinner was wonderful and the service was exemplary.

The setting on Puget sound with the skyline in view as well as sunset is priceless.

This is a place to take your out of town guests!!!!! Tell them this is the view the sports program show on TV when there is a major league game being televised. I was amazed at the friendliness of the hostess to the wait staff. Our server was Cameron and he was prompt and well informed, he was nice about having a friendly exchange with our of of town guests. Everyone was very pleased with their meals especially our friends from the Midwest who are not really fond of seafood. They liked what they had I think it was because it was so fresh (good job Salty's). We will be repeats whether there are out of town guests with us.

We had a nice relaxing dinner with wonderful views on the outdoor patio. The food was good but not the best on our trip to Seattle. Our waiter was a bit causal for my liking but the views of the city couldn’t have been better.

Overall was good, but the service is a little slow, the coffer came just a little before the meal, and the soup came behind the meal was served, I was hoping soup comes before hand. but understand, it was very busy on Monday afternoon and the waiter was still very nice.

What a grand celebration we could hold with an outside table, view, the most amazingly efficient and welcoming Wait Staff and Server. The food is a feast of freshness, the best in seafood, dessert delicacies, fruits, salads, plentiful and quickly refilled.

We had cousins visiting from the east coast who had just gotten off an Alaskan cruise who had never been to Seattle before. We only had a few hours with them and we wanted to be sure to top off their experience with brunch at Salty’s. The earliest reservation we could make on open table was 12:30, but that would not work with their flight out. I made a phone call to see if we could get an earlier reservation and Audrey was able to make it happen. To top it off, we were able to get a table with a great view for them. They really enjoyed their experience. And, the food was AWESOME! The woman at the waffle table was SO friendly. Thank you for such a great experience.

I regret the Chef's special only because I felt the extra seasoning was too strong for copper river salmon. I would recommend, particularly with such an expensive and limited Salmon, having it cooked with a very minimalist approach so the full flavor of the fish can be appreciated.
The level of service was professional and very good; however, it was slow. So I wonder if they were understaffed for the night but it was surprisingly slow.

Salty's was highly recommended to my daughter and I. Coming from Florida's West Coast Gulf of Mexico, we are accustomed to excellent seafood. The views from Salty's was outstanding and a beautiful day in Seattle. We had some excellent oysters and a delicious Baby Romaine Ceasar Salad. My daughter ordered the Halibut Dinner and I ordered the Copper River Salmon Dinner. Unfortunately, the Halibut had to be sent back because it was cold. My Copper Salmon was dry and overcooked - very disappointed. Probably would not return or recommend.

We have been here a few times both for brunch and for dinner. The food is always quite good. The seafood in brunch is extremely fresh and delicious. There are variety of other food to choose from as well. However this time the server seemed to ignore us. He was very slow in changing our plates. We even had to call him to refill water and to bring us the check. This was a bit unexpected considering the restaurant is more of a upper scale one.

It was a great atmosphere. Gets a little busy on Saturdays. It really enjoyed the food and our server John was amazing! John was very informative and took time out, even when very busy, to chit chat with our silly questions.
Definitely will be back.

I’m humbled by the kindness of the general manager & staff at Salty’s on Alki this morning. My 12 year old son was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is not allowed to eat from buffets, being immune suppressed from chemo. I did not realize that on the weekends for brunch they only serve a buffet at Salty’s. After I tearfully explained my mistake to our sweet waiter, he got the general manager, Chris. Chris & the rest of the staff could not have been more amazing, treating my son like a KING - making whatever he wanted, moving us closer to the window (because, ferry boats:) and taking such good care of us. #cancersucks but there are beautiful people out in the world, helping to make these dark days a little bit brighter ❤️ I am a Salty’s fan for life. (Oh & if excellent service isn’t enough to make you want to try Salty’s, the food is absolutely delicious!!)

For special events or occasions, this place is great. I have been twice, and both times my only complaint would be that the risotto just isn’t that good. It’s mushy and crunchy at the same time. I’d swap for the potatoes. The mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops and lobster are fantastic. Chase is a great waiter too!

You’re paying a premium for the view, period. The actual restaurant itself is dated and dumpy. The Sushi was probably the tastiest I’ve ever had. My nearly $50 Steelhead Salmon was over cooked and frankly didn’t taste fresh. Our hostess and server were wonderful.
