My wife and I went to Salty's for an early Memorial Day Dinner. The sun was shinning and there were sail boats of the Columbia River. We shared a bottle of German Riesling. My wife started with a cup of chowder and I started with a Caesar salad. For the main course, my wife had salmon from Oregon while I chose the salmon from Alaska. The view is one of the best in Portland. The food was good but the prices were high.

Salty's is in an enviable location overlooking the Columbia River. The scenery is unbeatable, the service is outstanding, and the food is expertly prepared, well-presented, and tasteful. What is the drawback? It is the prices. We were shocked at what was being charged for the menu items. Everything was a la carte, and even so, the entree prices reached the $60 range. If you can afford it, this is a great place. But it's not for the every day meal.

Four of us went to dinner here yesterday. Love the atmosphere. It's a lively place on the river with outdoor seating which we enjoyed. The menu is extensive BUT the prices are pretty high. All items seemed priced higher than I found comfortable but the food was good perhaps not at the level that justified the prices. We didn't complain or let the prices impact our nice meal. The halibut I had was fixed nicely and the sides were excellent. The wine was very good and seemed fairly priced and there was a good pour. I believe we all enjoyed the place but as i said this place is expensive.

Luxurious restaurant on the south bank of the Columbia, just west of Portland airport. Outstanding food with ingredients of the highest quality. Pretty waitresses. Very expensive, but worth it for a big occasion
