    It is always an extraordinary time at Salty's! It is a favorite of my family and me. The food is spectacular, the wine recommended was delicious, and the staff is always amazing. The view is devastatingly beautiful in the summertime.

    Great experience considering they had lost power early in the day. I would say they recovered beautifully. Had no affect on the great service and food we enjoyed. Would definitely go back if in town again.

    We made a reservation on that morning to celebrate my birthday with my fiancé. Glad we made an early reservation because we got a table right by the window overlooking the river. Plus it was quiet (noise wise). Oysters were excellent, so was chowder. My fiancé got Mac n cheese with bacon, which was very cheesy, creamy goodness! My sablefish was very soft and buttery! We were treated with a complementary dessert too! But the best thing of our experience was our server (sorry I totally missed her name, but she has orange hair :)) She was very attentive, friendly and had a very nice smile :) Thank you so much again! Definitely recommend to everyone!

    Well, power went out, so we didn't get the full buffet experience. However, what we did get to enjoy was phenomenal. I really was looking for crepe and the chocolate fountain. Our server was amazing, and the whole staff did their best with the power situation. All in all, when we come back, we will make reservations for earlier in the AM. Tip If you have any impairments, request downstairs. Again, the staff was absolutely awesome. We shall return and stay tuned for an update

    Power went out about half way through our meal so we weren’t able to enjoy some of the food items such as the chocolate fountain we were looking forward to but our server Jessica was very nice and attentive. Food was good and views were very nice.

    It was freezing upstairs. Enough so that I wanted to leave but friend had a sweater in the car. There is no way the buffet was worth $90.00. A few mimosas would have at least been nice. Then $25.00 per bottle of champagne. I had an omelette that was really good. Otherwise it was seriously nothing special and we won’t be back. We were a party of 9. All felt like it was a rip off.

    Luckily we had finished our brunch when the power went out. Salty’s brunch is about the best around no matter which of their locations you go to: Portland on the Columbia River, Alki/West Seattle, or Redondo.
