The Spinnaker, located in Sausalito, CA, sits on stilts out over the Bay. It has an unparalleled view of San Francisco, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge, the harbor area of Sausalito, Tiburon, and the Bay in general. While sipping a glass of wine and perusing the fabulous menu you can glance out over the Bay watching paddleboarders and kayakers coast on... More

Views were fantastic during sunset and the food was pretty good but so overpriced. I felt underdressed in a t shirt. Probably would go elsewhere next time for better value.

Eat here for the view if nothing else. Food just happens to be good, too. Spectacular view of San Francisco.

We went a little after 11 am and glad we did. Got to park in the lot with no problem. Seated immediately by one of the MANY floor to ceiling windows. Amazing Amzing Amazing views of the Bay, Alcatraz. Didn't see the Golden Gate Bridge, but I didn't care, it was a little hazy. The Pros: The location, the views,... More

Beautifully situated restaurant by Sausalito Marina, just a few minutes walk from the ferry landing. The lady maître d' couldn't have been more welcoming and she found us a table with the most fantastic view of San Francisco across the Bay - she told us this table had become available due to a no-show. Probably best to book if you... More

If you are going to The Spinnaker for a dinner, I definitely recommend that you make a reservation and then use the free Valet service to park your car. We had a 7:00 p.m. reservation and they seated our party of 3 right at 7:00, next to the window with a beautiful evening view of San Francisco. It couldn't be... More

This is right on the water, so you'll be able to see the boats sailing by, and it also has a fantastic view of the city! The sunset is gorgeous from here, and you can watch the lights of the city twinkling in the distance. The food was pretty good as well, and I had the best clam chowder here.
