At the end of a small Peninsula in the middle of beautiful Sausalito, sits this handsome restaurant. There are plenty of tables that are by the windows and I suggest you make a reservation for one of them. However, even if you are first tier back, the views are great. Being on the little Peninsula, not only have unobstructed views... More

On a Friday, a rainy Friday we walk across the Golden Gate bridge, and needed a warm up spot and food to eat. My friend suggested The Spinnaker for its spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline and the Bay area. It was a grey day... but the views and ambience was perfect! Rounded of with the best clam chowder... More

I was looking forward to eating at the Spinnaker, its in a great spot and has a good reputation. I went on a Thursday night which was quiet affording me a great table by the window with a view of San Francisco across the bay. I chose the bake Brie which unfortunately was at best warm in places and cold... More

The Spinnaker's is a old school restaurant with a billion dollar view. We all enjoyed our meal, drinks and service I had a Seafood Boullibase that had a tasty sauce and was served with delicious Remoulade and San Francisco Sourdough. My husband had Sole Dore and our friend enjoyed Some Almondine. The servings were plentiful and served in a timely... More

We dropped in for a late lunch after walking in nearby Muir Woods. My husband often orders clam chowder, and I often get a taste...but after this taste, I wanted to eat the whole bowl! I have never tasted such delicious clam chowder, and when I told our waiter how delicious it was, he admitted that they had been awarded... More

Very scenic drive from San Francisco, stopped off for pics of Golden Gate. Real easy to self park as their lot is big. Service was very professional, appetizer (Calamari) was awesome, meal was delicious (Halibut). The view is incredible, you can see downtown San Fran, the top of Golden Gate. A sea lion came up right near the window seat... More

Beautiful view. We were warned by our tour driver that this place was pricey. I didn't find it to bad although we were just there for cocktails and snacks. Great view of Sausalito and San Fran. The décor looks like it hasn't been updated since the 70s, with water stained carpeting and seats that the upholstery is torn or pulled.... More

We ate at The Spinnaker Restaurant in Sausalito. We had a late lunch and early dinner. Of course, we had seafood. We asked for quick service since we had a ferry to catch. There were not many places open. It was a little more expensive but it was very good. The staff was very professional.

We were in San Francisco area for four days. The meal we had here was the best by far. I had the petrale filet with croutons and macadamia nuts and the clam chowder. Both were excellent. The view is amazing!
