Nice atmosphere, excellent view over Sausalito'w marina. Cioppinolitto tastes very good but it must have more sea food than potatoes and carrots. I was expecting something more.

Came in after fishing in the AM looking to have a nice cold beer at an outdoor bar in Sausalito. We happened upon Salito's, went to the back porch bar, and the bar tender refused to serve us, accusing us of being on drugs, and being drunk (admittedly we had just finished fishing so we looked scrubby). We then approached... More

This a great place, great service and beautiful views. The crab chowder Rocks!!! The hot iron shrimps, mussels and crab is tasty!!! The beer is very good, not very cheap but it's worth it.

Sausalito is an expensive area hence the prices I guess. But the ambience and the service are worth it. We had lobster and crabs and seated by the water. We couldn't be happier!

We visited Salito's after hiking the Marin Headlands. We started with the bread. It was amazing. We than had delicious crab cakes. We than had a sizzling platter with shrimp, mussels and Dungeness crab. It was great too. For dessert we had fresh Beignets that tasted like little pillows of heaven. Service was great and they even turned the heater... More

The best part of our meal was the crab chowder - delicious; it went downhill from there. The crab fondue is not fondue at all (I was thinking dipped bread in a cheese sauce), but lumpy crab, cheese and spinach to spread on hard bread, which would have been ok, but it was very watery and not very flavorful. We... More

The three stars are for the nice bartender who greeted us when we sat up at the bar. We stopped at Salito's for lunch because they specialize in this native San Franciscan's favorite food = CRAB and my Hubby's = Prime Rib. I wanted something light so I ordered the Crab Chowder/ house salad combination, the hubby had the Philly... More

Had a perfect new years day lunch here sat outside overlooking the harbour. Service very friendly and the prime rib dipwich was amazing. Not cheap but a great place for a celebration and the drive over from SF makes it worth a visit alone.

Description
Salito's has been a long standing part of the Sausalito landscape--Zack's in the eighties, then Margaritaville and most recently Paradise Bay. The new look is fresh, bright and full of casual ambience. Large decks overlook the water and the beauty of the area is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy one of several refreshing Nick & Nora Cocktail Specials available from the full bar or just have a Cafe du Monde chicory coffee with freshly-made beignets A casual bite or a full-on feast--either one or something in between is the perfect Salito's experience. Signature dishes include: * House-made kettle bread served with Straus butter * Whole roasted Dungeness crab * Sizzling iron-skillets of mussels, shrimp and crab * USDA Prime, prime rib * Seafood specialties * Crab chowder, interesting salads and creative sandwiches Sitting on beautiful Richardson Bay in Sausalito, the blue sky and sparkling water are the perfect setting for an afternoon or evening of dining al fresco at Salito's.
