We initially picked this restaurant so we could eat with a view. The food was top notch. If you decide to get dessert definitely try the banana bites.

The food was average at best. It wasn't bad by any means but just not great. The service was great and the view terrific.

We spent an afternoon in Sausalito and had a lovely lunch at the Trident out on their patio. The food was good. The service excellent. The view was beautiful. I would recommend both the Crab Cake Benedict and the Bib and Bleu salad. Their Bloody Mary's were impressive.

We had lunch outside and so pleasant. Beautiful views; good service. There are heaters if needed. The inside looked lovely, as well. There is valet service.

Great view of the Bay excellent food ( try the crab cakes). Prices are a bit high but the view worth the premium

Food was great and the view was breathtaking. We sat out on the deck and were able to watch the sunset. I ordered the scallops with gnocchi and I was very satisfied.

Very good sole - beautiful views of the bay. You will pay an average of 30 dollars per entree, the seafood is great!

Decades on the Trident has remained the same in appearance without the ferns...Back in the 70's the establishment was loaded with ferns and the hip of the day...One of the less than obvious details of the wooden decor is the hand rail on the left as you enter from the hall to the restaurant...it is an extremely long male genital...unknowingly,...

Great place to eat in Sausalito. Food was excellent and view across the bay was heavenly. Only complaint was service was slow. Luckily we were in no hurry to get away from the view.

Tiered seating arrangement in the dining area meant that every table was able to enjoy the classic views from Sausalito across the bay to San Francisco. We shared their signature dish which was full of quality seafood and ended up being just the right quantity of food for us. Highly recommended!
