While the restaurant is old and outdated, the view, food, and view are out of this world. Our waitress told us all about the area, her favorite dishes, and even charged our phones for us. While eating dinner, we saw body surfers, sea lions, and...More

Our hotel suggested The Spinnaker when we asked for a recommendation. The restaurant was an easy walk from the hotel. On arrival it reminded me of a 60's vibe with the style of the building and the decor. The furniture is old but it adds...More

I never miss the occasion to visit the spinnaker whenever i come to SF. Sausalito is charming View of downtown SF over the bay can be breathtaking especially at dusk. Fish is fresh and you can enjoy some rich fullbodied californian chardonnay What else ?

We sat at a window looking st San Francisco. The view is fantastic and the sailboats fighting the wind provide extra entertainment. The service was very good as was the food. I was lower priced than I expected from the $$$$ listing but not inexpensive.

Sorry, you would have to call the restaurant directly with that question since my husband, our friends and I were only diners.
