The swordfish grilled with cilantro rice and grilled artichoke is very hard to beat. This is one yummy meal. I've tried to make this rice at home but haven't been able to duplicate it yet, it is just great. The piece of swordfish is good sized and grilled just perfect. The restaurant is a little noisy but that's okay because... More

I can't wait to get back to Fresno and eat at Pismo's Costal Grill.. Hands down it is the best place in Fresno. Food, service and atmosphere are great here. They also have a nice Happy Hour. Either make reservations or be prepared to wait a bit. You get a beeper and can wait at the bar. Drinks came quickly... More

I was able to reserve a table for 4 for the same day. Didn't have to wait, seated immediately and promptly waited on by very polite and attentive staff. Ordered an extra large beer and a salmon dish. Everything was spot on and delicious. My company polished their plates as well. I think the only downside is that the price... More

This locally owned restaurant took Fresno by storm. It's located in a busy shopping area of north Fresno so gets plenty of walk in business both lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is casual valley hip and the service impeccably trained. The food is perfection, no matter what you order, but I always fall for the seafood salad: gobs of lobster,... More

The sourdough round bread appetizer was really good. I just wish it had more cheese on it. My wife and mother-in-law ordered the classic fish and chips which were pretty good. I had the chicken BLT and my brother had the California burger. All were good but a little pricey. However, I am not a fan of the shoestring fries... More

I can honestly say I've enjoyed everything I've had. Good Variety of options. I really like the Santa maria Steak appetizer, the sauces on it are tastey. The crab cakes are also another favorite.
