Sausalito

Last weekend, Matt and I went to Sausalito. We spend some time before dinner checking out a few shops and doing a great little wine tasting at Real Napa. For $5 we got to sample 3 boutique wines (that are way out of our price range) and we learned a lot about Fotsch Vineyards from the woman working.

For dinner we had reservations at a restaurant called The Spinnaker. It's 50+ years old and probably hasn't been updated in over 20 years. I have a very mixed review for this place. It had incredible panoramic views. Another plus was that it had free valet parking. Some negatives:  even though we had a reservation and were promised a table next to the window, the host was very rude to us and told us we would have to wait another half hour to get a window table. The food, while fresh, was very over-priced and BORING! Matt and I both got different seafood pastas. The pasta was cooked well and the seafood was fresh, but we were both wondering where the flavor was. Lots of salt and pepper were added to make it edible and they cost $20!
On the plus side we both had some great cocktails, our waiter was very nice, and the sourdough bread was great. We also met a Dayton Alumni and had a great conversation with her. It wasn't all bad. My recommendation would be to go for a drink and maybe an appetizer. The views are incredible, but the food is not.
