Great views, food, and service. We had a 10AM reservation for their weekend brunch and were seated almost immediately. It was crowded, but we never had to wait long for anything.

Great anniversary dinner for my parents, a perfect corner window table and amazing food. The card from the staff and the rose petals were just icing on the cake. Thank you for a great night!

This will definitely become a yearly tradition. A variety of well prepared and tasty choices for all different food requirements that my family have. Well worth the price, and no clean up after everyone is done.

Excellent Thanksgiving Buffet! Turkey, gravy, yams with marshmallows were great! The green beans, Brussels sprouts, and squash were all perfect! Favorite things from the buffet were the deviled eggs with crab and caviar, the Mac and cheese which had a nice spicy sausage in it, and the dark chocolate cups with the mint creme for dessert. Lots of other main course dishes there and sides. There were plenty of other desserts there too - apple cake, white chocolate raspberry cupcakes - both were great, I could eat half of each of them (I had hardly any room for dessert). We had an Argentine Malbec with dinner which went well with just about everything. My only complaints would be that the roast lamb was a little dry, and that the place was crowded.

I've had lunch / dinner at Salty's in the past and have enjoyed the food. I decided to try the Thanksgiving buffet. The food was plentiful and varied (but some needed a bit more flavor (salt)). The shrimp scampi was very flavorful, the lamb a little bland. I enjoyed the mignonettes. The desserts were tiny (but a good thing so that I could sample pretty much all of them)

The waitperson was attentive and responsive to our needs.

The time was limited so no time to be leisurely in eating but I managed to feel pretty stuffed when leaving.

We've had Saltys regular buffet but this was our first holiday. The best part were fresh oysters & crab legs but those are available at a normal buffet. Everything else was just ok. There really wasn't anything festive or out of the ordinary. Turkey & stuffing aren't special & certainly wouldn't be worth the high price. It was a regular Saltys buffet without the much anticipated bloody Mary bar. Joseph, our server was outstanding even though we had to request an iced tea refill. Unlimited mimosas would be nice & would help take the sting out of the price. The only big negative was watching a male employee working the area with the olives, salami, cheese, rolls etc. I watched him unknowingly drag the towel in his left hand all over the salami & cheese while tidying up. Overall it was ok but won't return. Just not worth the price. Oh, one last thing. The music selection was horrible. Who wants to listen to loud rock n roll? It wasn't relaxing listening to American Woman by the Guess Who.

Thanksgiving Brunch. We arrived at 11 am so maybe experience is different late in the day. We seated promptly after getting a cup of coffee and snack in waiting room. Salty's was totally on top of the brunch. Not too crowded. Food constantly replenished and fresh. Attentive service.

It's a great place for out of towners as well as though of us who live in the great Northwest! Always very fresh fish, wonderful choices of everything at the brunch and the view is just spectacular. The one thing that I did notice this time around was that the noise level was very high. A little bit distracting for truly intimate conversation. Our server, Adam, was magnificent! Very attentive, not overbearing and very polite, courteous and professional! Love the complimentary valet parking! Wonderful for people with physical disabilities.

Mary, our server, was very professional. She knew the menu and made some outstanding recommendations. I also talked to Maria about moving our reservation up when our plans changed at 4pm that day. She was able to get us in 45 minutes later At 4:30 we were in the bar having drinks when we noticed the restaurant and bar sections filling up and were glad Salty’s had the flexibility to move our reservation. We all were very happy with our visit to Salty’s.

Food was OK this time (have visited several times before and food was better then). Service was rushed it seemed to me. Waiter was quick to take order, quick to put it in, and quick to bang out first dish before I could even get settled good. Immediately just as I was finishing first dish, the second dish was placed in front of me. After that, the waiter disappeared, and he didn't come back to my table until he dropped the check on the table. Place was busy but not overly so. The rushed service made for a disappointimg experience. I did not feel like a valued customer.

Salty's is a Classic Seattle Restaurant. The views are Great, the food is good, although a bit Salty for my taste:). It was my Birthday and I was treated to the "standard" fanfare like all the Birthdays around me as well. It was routine and what made it special was my company.

As we stated it was a birthday everything was wonderful . From the wait staff to the food. Outstanding as always. We started by the fire where it was still chilly and one of the wait persons she over heard and got me a blanket. How thoughtful and unexpected. The manger on duty was extremely personable as well as our wait person he was excellent.Our first official date was at Salty's 27 years ago. If we could of been made to feel any more special we would have moved in ;) Thanks for keeping Salty's a place We will Always visit!

We went to Salty's with our son and his wife on their first trip to Seattle together and we were able to get a window seat with a beautiful evening skyline view. The service was AWESOME! friendly, professional and very very informative and helpful with information about food, Seattle and the surrounding area of Alki Beach. Truly a fantastic experience.
