Saltys on Alki
Salty's is a wonderful place to have your wedding. They were incredibly supportive, especially on the day-of - the servers were professional and competent, and the food was amazing. The only slight issues were responsiveness at times due to some staffing changes at the time that we were planning; however, I felt that overall they went above and beyond the call of duty to help us have the perfect wedding. Another reason to choose Salty's is that it provides both an indoor and outdoor space so if the weather is good, you can go on the deck, and if not, you can enjoy the great view from the floor to ceiling windows.
Salty's was wonderful! We were planning our wedding remotely and they made everything easy for us. Our guests really enjoyed the food and the view. Their staff was absolutely wonderful.
Excellent food. Our rehearsal dinner was fabulous!
such a wonderful place! stellar view (of course) and great food. very, very professional staff, from the catering manager to the servers. they were always helpful and flexible with us, working with us on a few non-traditional things we wanted incorporated into our wedding reception. can it be pricey? of course - but if you are willing to have your wedding in an off-month (ours was in April) or a night other than Friday or Saturday, the room minimums are WAY lower. also there are no room fees to rent the place - you just have to hit the food and beverage minimum. so much better than all the other places we looked that would have nickel-and-dimed us: "Oh well to use our microphone is an extra $50..." they include all that stuff at Salty's - dance floor, microphone, etc. it's a really perfect place for a wedding!
My parents held our engagement party in the Admiral room and it was great. They had flower arrangements out for us and arranged the tables as we specified. It was a nice experience for the entire family and we enjoyed the food! With appetizers, a sit down dinner, dessert and a champagne toast they spent about $1800 for a party of about 40 people. I would hold another event there with no worries.
I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Salty's on Alki. While they usually discourage having the ceremony there, they were very flexible in helping me make that work, and even working with me to get a rehearsal in on-site. Every staff person we encountered was incredibly friendly and willing to go out of their way to take care of us. The manager for my event always made sure that my husband and I got any food or drinks that we wanted, and made sure that everything was to our liking. I've heard nothing but praise for Salty's from my family and other guests as well. The food was incredible - my only regret is that I ate too much earlier in the day and couldn't eat as much as I wanted to at the reception. The venue itself looked wonderful too. Of course you can't beat the view for a Seattle wedding, but the ballroom - while a little rustic - looked amazing and refined with all the linens on the tables and the chair covers on the chairs. We had a minimum food and drink cost to reach, but as long as we met the minimum everything else was included - tax and tip were still additional. We had no problem meeting the minimum, but prices for food and drink were still very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Salty's to anyone. They were absolutely wonderful to work with, and for the price - I don't think the food, service, and view can possibly be beat.
I had my wedding ceremony and reception in the Duamish room at Salty's and could not have been happier! It was extremely turn-key which I was looking for. The staff was all really friendly and accommodating to any needs that came up. The food was great and the view was amazing. Everyone had a great time, thank you for helping to make our wedding day perfect!
This is where my husband proposed. The staff was so friendly and flexible. He made the reservation the day of but told them it was a special occasion so they were able to get us a great table. They even let him back into the kitchen so he could see them make up the plate that said "will you marry me on it".
This was the only choice I ever would consider for our reception. They were wonderful, the food was impeccable, the view of Seattle - breathtaking. What can I say? Salty's has charm, sophistication, and a laid back atmosphere that I would recommend to everyone!
Salty's on Alki is a great venue for both wedding receptions and intimate weddings on the patio. I've attended both receptions and a wedding there, in the different banquet rooms, and it's been a wonderful experience. The staff consists of "regulars" who are courteous, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to see that you are comfortable and taken care of. The also offer valet parking, which is great considering its location and how difficult parking can be if you don't use this service. Their food is very tasty from their appetizers to main entrees. I look forward to the next chance I get to attend a wedding here!
This is a very pricey venue (especially in August) but we chose to go simple on every aspect of our wedding except the venue, and it paid off! The guests were in awe of the view, and the food was suprisingly good! I have eaten at Salty's and always felt the food was good, not great, but that they got away with it because of the view.
The staff was very flexible and helpful. We were able to pare down the buffet so that it was exactly what we wanted and the open bar drink prices were really reasonable.
The best thing about Salty's (besides the view) is the fact that it is the whole package. Dance floor, waiters, bartenders, linens, centerpieces (we just used their votive holders and mirrors and didn't need to spend money on centerpieces from a florist), parking... It was nice not to have to book all of those things separately.
Salty's on Alki is a beautiful place to have a reception. The view is amazing and the food is exceptional.
Colin, Jimmy, Jeffrey from the sales department and the wait staff were amazing! They made my day extra special. My only complaint was the awful treatment by the valet staff when we arrived and wanted to park near the back enterance to unload our stuff. They were insistent that we come back and let them repark our cars. We had been told specifically that this would not be necessary. It got the day off to a bad start and made me very cranky. The valet guy was a huge jerk to me and to my mother and to my friend (we were in separate cars with other people riding with us and we all arrived together). However, it was all uphill from there and the day turned out to be amazing for the most part. The only other annoying thing was a couple with a little girl came breezing past the windows of the room WHILE WE WERE GETTING MARRIED to go stand on the deck that was supposed to private for us during our ceremony. It might behoove Salty's to either gate the deck off at that side of the restaurant or put up signage that the area is private for those using their banquet rooms. Again, these were small things in what was otherwise an amazing and fantastic day. The wait staff in particular was helpful, efficient, professional and amiable. We didn't get our apple cider toast but I didn't really want it anyway so I didn't miss it. I especially appreciated Colin's willingness to work with me on what was best for my wedding.
They had the best service, the best food, the best value for money and AMAZING views. They were wonderful and all my guests loved and enjoyed the food!
Quality of Service: Above average. The staffs during the reception were very professional. It was very obvious that they deal with a lot of receptions. The reason I can't give exceptional because there were a couple little details on the contract that they almost did not executed. My friend had to pointed out the details they missed and they fixed them at the last minutes.
Responsiveness: Exceptional... Jeff Young, the manager is very responsive in replying my calls/emails
Value for Budget: Average... They provided 4 type of menus of buffet. They are ranging from $27 ++ to $80 ++ (++ means extra 20% service charge and 9.3% tax). The minimum is $10,000 May - October, and $7,000 for November - April
