This is a repeat visit to a place that is becoming my top seafood restaurant in Seattle. Again, great service and great views paired with an excellent wine list and great seafood. Oysters were super fresh and delicious! My Halibut with Prawn was tasty, right temperature and paired excellently with the local whit wine. Not cheap, but worth every penny!

I like to go to brunch. I have been to a number of restaurants that advertise brunch. Finally made it to Salty's and I was not disappointed. The food was absolutely wonderful with a fantastic selection and everything was fresh. The view is amazing. The staff were friendly and attentive. When I want to go to brunch, I am heading... More

Had the pleasure of dining here during a weekday. The hostess and wait staff were friendly and efficient. I would recommend making a reservation requesting seating close to the windows for a better view. Our meal was nice, I had oysters as an appetizer and halibut for my entre. The meal was nice, I'm glad I was able to dine... More

Food came over an hour later. The halibut was... More

We had reservations for Salty's based on a recommendation from a friend. Wow! Amazing dining experience from the view of the skyline, outstanding menu and top notch service. Our waiter Brian went above and beyond to make our evening spectacular! Would go back in a heartbeat!

The view is beautiful but the food is over priced and not that good. The wait staff were very friendly and outgoing.

We enjoyed the seafood chowder and the warm seafood salad. Excellent. Restaurant is built on piers over the water and three walls of glass offer spectacular views. Nice staff.

You will need to save up for this special brunch, but once past the cost you will experience the best brunch in town. They have everything you could want in abundance at this feast. Includes coffee and soft drinks, but for some reason juice is an extra charge. With tip, you will drop $80.00 a person but for a special... More

One of the first things that really impressed us about this place was the waitstaff. Our server was not only attentive, but genuinely interesting to talk to. He was funny and knowledgeable not only about the food, but also had neat facts that he sometimes would share during conversation. Plus, when he got busy with a big group, his equally... More
