Maybe it's because I am used to great fish restaurants in San Francisco like Scoma's, but this restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. We sat outside, which was lovely. We ordered a shrimp louis and a crab louis, and we were told by our wai ... more

Just had dinner with friends and ordered a bowl of New England Clam Chowder and the Mesquite Charbroiled Hawaiian Opakapaka or pink snapper with vegetables and rice. The chowder was nice though I thought it lacked a little edge in bacon or salt f ... more

I love this restaurant. The top of the Market upstairs has a fantastic crab melt sandwich. I recommend sitting at the counter and watching the cooks as they prepare the most mouth-watering assortment of sea food imaginable. Also during the spring ... more

While very good (and commanding a variety of fresh fish) the Fish Market can occasionally disappoint. Inconsistency and small portions are common problems, as are long waits. The oyster bar specialties are quite good and creative ... better than ... more

The top of the market is one of the ten best resturants in northern californa. Mike's jumbo is a must for sea food lovers. If you are alone sit at the counter it's always friendly. The food and the service are consistant.

There are two distinct restaurants here, the Fish Market and the Top of the Market. Both offer some great seafood dishes. Rarely ever a disapointment. Upstairs, at the Top of the Market, sit at the counter and watch em' hustle around. Other seati ... more

I am a huge fan of the Fish Market. I've also been to the Palo Alto and Del Mar locations and they have consistantly pleased me. (I'm a demanding SOB) I know people who eat here weekly, and would myself if I was local. The menu is a long utilitari ... more

The fish is consistently fresh and delicious. So are the raw oyster combo, which we always get. The only negatives I can say are that everything's about the same -- all the fish is prepared in the same style, except for the very few blackened choic ... more
