We had been to this restaurant several times for lunch and always loved the food and view. But we had never been there for dinner until this weekend, when we happened to be in the area. And we again loved it. Obviously, the view is one of the best places to view the entire bay area. The dinner menu was... More

This is a fantastic spot to have lunch and admire the amazing view over the bay. Definately ask for a spot outside (although it can be a little cramped). The local beer tasting board was a great choice. Really firendly and speedy service as well.

We stopped by here to grab a drink and relax with a view of the water. Service was decent. Definitely worth the stop.

Wonderful water views on this waterside restaurant in Sausalito. Try to get an outdoor seat to enjoy the view if the weather is cooperating. Very touristy, but a nice place to visit. Food was very average and service was good. I would recommend the bakery directly across the street which has a great selections of lunch foods.

We crossed the Golden Gate then headed for this charming town. It's well worth a few hours to soak up the view from this restaurant whilst enjoying fabulous food and a good service. Lots of sea food or an extensive American menu to choose from. The Russian Stout is one of the West dark beers on the West coast! Highly... More

Beautiful, amazing view, especially at sunset. Angel Island is so close you could swim over. The food, however, gets a C/C-. You cannot really eat here for the food, because it's slow, expensive, and barely adequate.

I was really looking forward to eating here, and the views, regardless were superb. I sat on the bar facing out towards the water and watched the sailboats go by. But holy crap, was the food terrible. So much so it made me sick. I ordered the Muir Woods Mushroom burger with side salad, and it tasted like the whole... More

We were biking over Golden Gate Bridge, and arrived in Sausalito for lunch. Sunny weather, so we were looking for a place to sit outside. Not many available! The Trident has a beautiful terrace. Nice staff but service was a bit slow. Good food, both fish and meat.

Our visit was fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny day which made the view on the patio deck phenomenal! The food and service were great. Highly recommend dining here!

The server was helpful and attentive. Great at answering questions! The food was very yummy! The clam chowder was okay, needed a little more flavor! The warm Dungenous Crab was super tasty! The Garlic bread was great!
