The best view of the Seattle skyline last night was from Jay’s and my table at Salty’s Restaurant on Alki. Period.
If you think Alki Beach in West Seattle is hard to get to, don’t. It’s a breezy drive over the West Seattle bridge. Then you just take the exit furthest to the right (Harbor Avenue) that leads to the beach, and Salty’s is the first and only restaurant on the right.
The food is good and the atmosphere is fun. Open, bright, an outside deck, whimsical sculpture throughout the restaurant. It’s a great gathering place and it requires reservations.
I had the halibut cheeks over sticky rice with a delicious pear and fennel compote of sorts on top—the special of the day, which is always the freshest and best on the menu. Jay had the mixed seafood cocktail of breaded salmon, cod, shrimp, etc. It was okay, but mine was better! I recommend the non-breaded seafood here to get the best taste and preparation. Salty’s purchases from fishermen who use sustainable practices, and the produce is locally sourced. The desserts look amazing—we were too full to eat one, but you can see what they offer as you walk past the open kitchen and dessert bar on your way to your table.
Alki is one of the best spots to be on a sunny evening, or during the day! And Salty’s is a great place to grab a bite to eat or linger over dinner with a special someone.Add a comment
