Has anyone actually seen the Google+ Page Manager Dashboard? I manage a few pages and couldn't figure it out at first, you have to click the "Pages" icon in the left column, or click "More" if you don't see "Pages".

What a little gem! Came here for my husband's birthday on a Tuesday night, it wasn't busy at all, and the service was stellar. Lots of fresh seafood. We ordered the Steamed Mussels which were steamed right before our eyes! The drinks were delicious. We also split a crab cake which was super yummy. Reasonably priced and I think you get much larger portions than say, Bastille down the street (and I do love Bastille!) We will DEFINITELY be back!

Below is my old review. This is from the OLD Salty's. This used to be my favorite restaurant. Everything has completely changed over the last year. Tonight I met the GM, who has been there for 7 months. Now I can see why all of a sudden things have been changing. It's clear whatever he has been doing has not been a move in the right direction. Their prices have gone up, their menu has completely changed, Happy Hour is totally different and the food tastes BAD. We have gone at least a dozen times in the last year, if not more, hoping that maybe we just ordered the wrong thing, but no. I could deal with price and menu changes but I can't deal with the lowered quality. The food does not taste good. Here's the kicker - I wrote a poor review on Salty's Facebook wall. I was truly speaking from the heart as this was once my favorite place to go. I was so surprised to find their PR Director Nems reach out to me and invite me to Happy Hour. I thought it was a great gesture. I drove 45 minutes in rush hour traffic to meet this person and what do you know, they got sick AND their email was down. Sounds totally plausible. I sat there for 15 minutes while people tried to make it better, they didn't know why I was there and I didn't know why I was there either. Nems scheduled the meeting and didn't show. As I sat I watched the kitchen and was astonished to see they use butter or some type of butter in an aerosol can to spray the steak and fish. Really? Seriously? Finally they gave me some food and a glass of wine and the GM came to talk to me and went on and on about his personal resume and where he was prior, etc. Never once asked me why I was there, what feedback I had, etc. Then he left. Then I drove home 45 minutes in rush hour traffic. WHAT A JOKE. What happened to customer service? It certainly doesn't exist at Salty's, and that statement makes me sad. ----------------------------------OLD REVIEW, for the OLD SALTY'S--------------------------------- The service is stupendous. The type of service you'd want to receive. The food is AMAZING. Hands down, 100%, amazing. Their Happy Hour is a STEAL! Amazing food for super cheap in the bar, and great drinks. They also have late night happy hour! We spent one Friday night entertaining out of town guests first in the bar, for Happy Hour, then moved to dinner, then at 8pm headed back to the bar for late night happy hour! Talk about a FANTASTIC evening. This is hands down my FAVORITE restaurant in all of Seattle! We were blessed to get a gift certificate here for a wedding gift, otherwise we probably would not have found it (seeing as we don't live in West Seattle.) It is worth the drive and we make it there very frequently! Best view in Seattle; go here, you will not regret it.

I have tried lots of Hot Yoga studios in the Ballard/Fremont/U District area and I think this one is the best. Shakti in Ballard is also great but I think it's for the "more serious" yogini - I guess by more serious I mean, slightly more pretentious. I felt that Sweat Hot Yoga was very welcoming, no matter who you are. If you are nervous or a beginner, this is a great place to be. I took the Intro Series at Shakti and the male instructor we had (can't remember his name) really talked down to you. He actually made fun of my husband on his first class because it was his first time! The classes were GREAT, and challenging. I did Hot Hatha a few times (slower, more relaxed) and Power Vinyasa kicked my BUTT! The studio is small, but not too small. I felt Shakti was WAY more crowded than this studio. I like being able to reserve a spot online too.

Why keep your money somewhere that only wants to profit off of you? I prefer people over profits. We recently moved our money to BECU after US Bank subjected us to some really shady and unfair business practices. They called and asked me if I "wanted to get a better interest rate on some overdraft protection" and made it seem like it was something really special they were doing because they cared, which sounded reasonable, but it was actually a credit card. We were sent credit cards, both to myself and my husband, without our permission. This hurt our credit score and we never intended to open a credit card, they were just very deceptive and "careful with their words." When my husband went in to complain, he was told by their head of Customer Service that they are "a for-profit business" and that "lots of other banks do it" and "good like finding anything better anywhere else." Well we did, it's called a Credit Union, and they actually care about their members. Yay for BECU!

Very calming, nice atmosphere. These classes are taught by TRUE professionals, don't be fooled by other locations and their claims.I took the Intro Series, which I highly recommend. The personal attention is unparalleled, whether you are in the intro series or not. They truly want to make sure that you are doing things correctly (so you can get the full benefits AND so you don't hurt yourself!) My only complaints are that sometimes it feels a bit pretentious and as if people are taking it a bit too seriously. My husband was made fun of on his first class...I know the instructor was joking, but it has made him not want to try Hot Yoga again. The other complaint is that you can really be packed in tight into these classes. Sometimes I thought they were too full.

Myself and my friend went here for a cooking class and it was DELIGHTFUL! We made a 4 course meal, one was pasta with cantaloupe in it...you would think that is a weird combination, but it was delicious! Everything was great, and good wine too. What a little gem...Luigi was a fantastic host, I loved his stories and could listen to him talk for hours. I wanted to stay and speak with him more because I am so interested in his story! I will certainly be back with my husband, and with visitors from out of town. Thank you!
