A week in advance, we placed reservations at the Spinnaker for 7pm on Sunday, 9/10/17. We were seated immediately at a table with an excellent view of San Francisco as we had requested. Our waitress was great and helped us decide on what might be...More

OK, so you are really paying for the view, but it is well worth it. The restaurant is surrounded on three sides by water so even the inside tables have great views. The food is spendy, but tasty. We tasted the fish and chips, turkey...More

While it took a while to get seated, it was certainly worth the wait. The service and the food were excellent. The view of the bay was fantastic. It was like we were still sailing.

Eight here on our recent Monday night during a visit to the area. Difficult menu to look at because there are so many interesting, innovative dishes. Definitely a seafood based restaurant and lots to choose from. Most dishes are between 22 and $30 but you...More

Stopped in Sausalito with my wife before heading back to NY from SFO. Food was excellent, as was the service. The view of San Francisco and the bay was awesome. Unfortunately, the interior of the restaurant desperately needs to updated (i.e. old carpet, ripped chairs).Would...More
