We were looking for a seafood restaurant in San Jose on our way to the airport area of San Francisco. This place did not disappoint. No wait at 5pm and we had full service at the bar from a helpful and attentive bar tender. This is a small chain of quality seafood restaurants that also has a fish market inside... More

I've been going to The Fish Market for years. They have fresh fish every day. If you don't see exactly what you were hungering for on the menu - just ask. If they have the ingredient, they will make it for you. Lately, I'm enjoying their Seafood Salads. Choose the "seafood" (in my case lobster salad) which comes with lettuce,... More

O.K., I admit that I am a Berkeley Foodie, so my opinions are probably biased. I would call this restaurant average - what I expect for a reasonably well run restaurant, but I suspect it's above average for Palo Alto. Very fresh fish, creative menu, on-the ball chef who came out to tell me that unfortunately he didn't have any... More

Our family loves fresh fish and for many of our experiences we have chosen The Fish Market. They have all sorts of fresh fish that is grilled to perfection and served simply with a choice of sides. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed and disillusioned by the serrvice and the quality of food. When our main course was finally served, it... More

The menu may look daunting as there are so many choices but the fish is always super fresh, the portions generous, the service good and the atmosphere lively. Oysters are freshly shucked, sushi rolls made to order and fish cooked to perfection. The calamari, in our opinion, is the most tender we have ever tasted. You can even purchase fish... More

My husband and I ate here. When we walked in the hostess was pretty persistent we should sit at the bar, but we don't drink and wanted a table. It was kind of awkward but a manager told her it was okay. My husband had the sablefish with rice and au gratin potatoes. I had the swordfish with au gratin... More

Last time I ate here was 2005, loved it so much I made sure I came back on this trip. Blackened salmon is the way to go. The blue cheese walnut salad is great too.

I love good fish. And I was looking for a good place in and around San Jose. In this case, I have been a big help by TripAdvisor that ranked this restaurant among the best in the area. I was not disappointed. As for the fish you'll be spoiled for choice. Excellent kitchen. The service is valid, even if the... More
