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

Great service. Great food. My husband and I split a bowl of chowder and a skewered dinner, and when they brought the first plate, I thought that was our dinner to split, but they had split it in the kitchen already and brought another identical plate. The food was very good and generous and the service was outstanding.

I made it to this place twice while I was visiting the San Jose area. I could tell right when I walked into the place on a Tuesday evening that this was going to be a good choice. The place was packed and there was a 25 minute wait. I decided to sit at the bar and dine since I... More

We went here really hungry. We started with an order of 12 oysters, and i loved these oysters. Then we had fish tacos because the server suggested we should get them. He was right. They were some of the best fish tacos I've ever had! The best part about this place was the service, and our server was fantastic. Definitely... More

The Fish market has a long list of fresh seafood choices (so long it is difficult to choose!). I chose the au gratin potatoes and roast vegetables as sides. Both were very good. I had the sea bass which was perfectly cooked. Service was attentive and accommodating. Entrees seemed somewhat expensive, but may be the norm for the area. I... More

Tuna was fresh and tasty, but a little pricey for portion. Entrees come with two sides, however some entrees don't qualify--a little confusing. Service was excellent. Dining area was noisy.
