We chose this place based on the location. The best part are the beautiful water views! However, this restaurant is very dated! It's like I stepped back in time. The carpet and furniture are worn and needs to be replaced. The entire experience was extremely dated and old!! The food was even brought out on a rolling cart, like I... More

Best view of the city with free no hassle parking. Just got together with some friends and was reminded of the beauty of San Francisco. This restaurant has its own free parking for guests. My review is not for the food as we didn't eat there. We just sat at the indoor bar for coffee / desserts and enjoyed the... More

We had my birthday dinner here with a group of 8 people. The dinner was very good and the location at the side of San Francisco bay was charming. They have a full bar with excellent house wine. The wine list had a good balance of less expensive wine and more sophisticated wines. We had oysters from the east coast... More

My 2 best friends brought me to the Spinnaker for my birthday dinner. I could not have been happier ! We had the best seats in the house overlooking the San Francisco skyline and the food was perfect ! I had the Seafood Platter combination that includes broiled scallops, crab, and shrimp along with some champagne. Everything was perfectly done... More

We came to Sausalito not knowing what to expect. We are so lucky we ended up in this charming restaurant. It has a gorgeous view of the bay. The food was so delicious! We had the mixed seafood grill, steak sandwich, shrimp sandwich and shrimp salad.

Most people day trip it from San Francisco (by ferry or car or taxi) to walk around and dine in Sausalito. The Spinnaker has really good seafood and spectacular views. You'll see more at lunch than at dinner. Getting a table along the windows is key!

Great location with views over the Bay, and plentiful parking, with valet attendance. We were a party of 9 , arriving at 7:30, and had a very impressive waiter, Steve. The starters, crab cake ($14.95 ), crab pot sticker ( $11.95 ), were disappointing. The scallops appetizer ($13.50) was good, as was the Caesar salad ($10.95). The main courses were... More

We reserved a table for 4:30 - about 30 minutes before sunset. The views from there forward were fantastic. We found the service to be somewhat above average and the quality of the food to be something around average. We would return, but with expectations to be in the area of average.

I decided to stop here for lunch after visiting the Golden Gate Bridge, as it was the highest rated restaurant in the area -- Clearly for good reason, however, if you're like me and you're just looking for a quick bite to eat on a road trip, this may be a little on the fancy/expensive side. There is no free... More

We ate lunch there and they were crowded. We were lucky to get a table by the window. The view were nice and made for a good experience. The Chowder was good and the Sea Cobb Salad and Sea Bass Saute was very good.
