    We dined at Salty’s yesterday as a 90th birthday celebration and it was absolutely fantastic! The table was decorated with birthday confetti, the view was spectacular and the service was truly phenomenal. Jorge explained the menu in a knowledgeable way and was incredibly patient with our group of nonagenarians. The good was outstanding and just renewed our love of this restaurant! So excited about the Sunday crab feasts!

    One of our favorite restaurants. Wanted to try out the Sunday night crab boil and it did not disappoint. Dane ,our server , was professional, and friendly. Table was not directly on a window, but it didn’t matter because the view is outstanding! We were delighted to find baked Alaska on the menu. Served table side,It was a spectacular and truly delicious way to end our meal.

    We were a party of 3, celebrating my son's 38th birthday. We were seated as per our reservation. The table was a lovely location, with a clear view of the Seattle skyline. The table was decorated with confetti and a thoughtful birthday card from the Saltys staff. My son and his girlfriend ordered surf and turf and I ordered the salmon dinner. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the salmon was impeccable, with a smooth and moist texture. at the conclusion of the meal, our waiter brought the birthday man a white raspberry cake with candles, compliments of the house. We so very much enjoyed the ambiance, food and service. Our waiter, Dane, catered to our every need and was a most gracious and attentive/appreciated server. We had a memorable and wonderful evening and will definitely return. Thank you Saltys!

    We visited Salty’s to celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday. The restaurant decorated the table with a sprinkling of Happy Birthday confetti, and staff signed a birthday card for him. Our food was delicious, service excellent, and the view spectacular. We’ll definitely return!

    We reserved through open table and noted that we were coming for a birthday. No calls to the restaurant beforehand and when we got to the table, there was a birthday card and small "happy birthday" sprinkles, if you will, on the table ... It was such a nice surprise and it made the evening so special. We've been to Salty's several times, most of the time to impress our out of town guests and it definitely did not disappoint during this most recent visit!

    My fiancé and I were celebrating our anniversary, Valentine's day and him moving to Seattle from Spokane yesterday, the 18th of February 2024. Our waiter was awful! He served two tables who were seated after us, way before he waited on us. Then we saw him laughing and talking with each of the three tables around us. It was so weird! By the time he had finally introduced himself, we already had our drinks picked out, as well as our food. But sadly, when he did finally come to us all he did was quickly say his name and that drinks were on the back of the menu. He then immediately went away- leaving without giving us the opportunity to talk. We had never been treated this poorly and we didn't understand it. He even brought the bowl for shells and "hot" hand towel 20 minutes before we received our food and placed it on the wrong side of the table not acknowledging us or saying anything about it. The "hot towel" was super cold by the time we needed to use it. We watched each table get treated so well, joked with as well as conversations with, and all out the door well before we had even received our check. We were seated at 5:30 and didn't get the check until 6:55. I have no desire to go back. It was such an upsetting evening. The worst part is, that we could not figure out why we were being treated so badly. Both my fiancé and I have been in customer service for a long time. This was a sad excuse for that. Especially on such a special evening! It was supposed to be a celebration! He didn't even once smile at us or attempt to treat us kindly. To top it all off my fiancé's cioppino had absolutely no seasoning. :( It was just a really sad experience all the way around! I used to LOVE Saltys! But wow, was this an expensive waste of a night.

    Had Sunday lunch with my son, we shared oysters and coconut shrimp for appetizers and my son also had a cup of chowder. For our entrees my son had the salmon with mash and asparagus and I had the fish tacos, for dessert we shared a baked Alaska which was fabulous! All the food was delicious but what truly enhanced the experience was the great view and the fantastic service we received from our server Chrissy, you can tell she loves what she does and is knowledgeable and makes her customers feel special. We will be back!

    I reserved my seat a week in advance and arrived 10 minutes before the scheduled time, but they gave me a table in a bad corner of the restaurant. I ordered a bottle of wine, but the server brought a glass, and I couldn't understand it well and was distracted, which made me feel bad. The soup and oysters I ordered weren't very good either. I used to go there sometimes on special occasions, but this time I had a bad experience.

    Great time as always. Service topnotch and ambiance to boot. Our favorite, however, the roasted chicken now has a saffron risotto and olive tapenade...both missed the mark and didn't work vs previous rice version which was the reason we returned.

    Our table, that was beside the window facing the lake which I requesr, was given some decoration and a card signed by all of the staff that we didn't expect. They also surprised us with a cake at the end. Service was oustanding and food was excellent as always. Our simple celebration became very memorable with the small details the restsurant did.

    We had a totally delightful experience at Salty’s! Our server, Chrissy, made us feel like we were the only table she was waiting on. I have always lived Salty’s ever since I lived in the Pacific NW in the late 1990’s, so when I found out we were going to be in the Seattle area around my 2/17 birthday and my wife asked where she could take me out for my birthday, I immediately thought of Salty’s. I highly recommend Salty’s especially if you are celebrating a special occasion.

    I took a friend from out of town to Salty's in West Seattle. She was amazed by the gorgeous view of downtown Seattle at night (so was I)! The food was excellent. I had the sablefish and it was buttery and was cooked perfectly. Also the mushfoom and slaw topping were excellent. She was not too hungry but she loved her shrimp cocktail, caesar salad, and especially the Columbia City bread, which had some magical toppings on it. The whole meal was excellent! The service, is old school, great! The waiters and waitresses were polite, professional, gave us space when we needed it and were there when we needed them. No many restaurants have this type of service any longer. The prices are high, but we knew that going in and we felt like we got the evening that we paid for. I will definitely go back!
