This has a beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay,. The food is a bit expensive but the service and food was ok . The restaurant has got a bit of history to it and has memorabilia on the walls as you walk it which as of interest.

Brought family around San Francisco. We ended up having late lunch in Sausalito on New Year's Day. It's packed but we didn't have to wait long. We didn't realize it's the same restaurant we've been to last time we visited Sausalito. Restaurant had big windows and a patio where people can sit. Servers were attentive inspire of being busy.

So, I had found an original Trident menu reportedly drawn by one of Janice Joplin's roadies in the 60's. The detail and psychedelics of the piece intrigued my inner hippie. I did the research to make sure the restaurant was still in existence and it is! While the restaurant doesn't really offer the granola/earthy foods of the period-nor the prices... More

The view here is great . The restaurant is very busy but the staff seem to be able to cope. I ordered An aussie burger and chips , husband got Fish and chips. Daughter got Fish tacos. All the food came in a timely manner for how busy they were. But I wouldn't rave about anything we got. And it... More

It was not our best moment In Sausalito. After a 30-minute waiting list, they found an outside table that was almost outside the restaurant. No heating, no service, windy... until I went to the front desk to complain. Then they remembered we were there. Tasteful meal, but the service was not so good, at least on a crowded day.

The view is the best feature of what one may call a tourist trap. The food is less of a experience than one would expect at Kentucky Fried. Service was lacking and prices are reflective of what may be termed as a kind of narcissism on the part of management. Much better food, service, value, and view can be found... More

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.

Thank Jeffrey S
