You must go here. Great food, service and views. Crab cakes are the best. You won't be sorry you went.

We had three couples all total and decided to eat lunch here after our long bike ride. Most of us had the chef's special which was butternut squash risotto, halibut with candied onions and avocado slices. It was so amazing! It was plenty of food and despite our best efforts, we ended leaving some food behind. Others had the corned... More

A sea food restaurant, with easy parking, sticking out on a jut of land into SF bay . Inside, ask for a window table facing the city. Daytime or night, always a great view. Food is good, price reasonable, service is excellent and the wine list extensive and reasonable priced.

The food was solid, I had halibut that was perfect and I heard consistent compliments on the entrees from our guests. Of course the view of the city back across the bay is spectacular. We took the ferry to and from dinner which added to... More

There was an open table so my husband requested if we could be seated across the room with the view, he mentioned that is a... More

A wonderful restaurant and bar overlooking San Francisco bay with the city across the water. JUST the place for cocktails! We chose pomegranate cocktails, one a margarita then other gin based and were they nice? You bet. So there we sat, sipping our cocktails, overlooking the bay.

We came here for lunch while on a tour so our time was limited. We shared appetizers which were all wonderful! Our waitress worked with us when we told her we had to meet our tour in 45 minutes. A few days later we went back to Sausalito by ferry mid-afternoon do we could tour the town and see SF... More
