This place is great! I could hardly choose the seafood meal that I wanted to order since there were so many awesome selections available. I highly recommend this place!!!!

With such few places to select from in Foster City, I highly recommend the Top of the Market. It overlooks a little river & perfect for lunch meetings. The food focus is California cuisine and fish/seafood.

If you are in staying near the San Francisco airport, we can highly recommend Top of the Market restaurant in San Mateo. My husband and I had a great dinner tonight. He had the Canadian Petrale Sole and I had the Northeast Haddock fish & chips - both were excellent. The fish is fresh as well as the side dishes.... More

Excellent food and definitely a few steps up from downstairs. Completely worth the extra $$. Sitting at the bar is fun because you can watch as your food is being prepared.

Literally a step up from the fish market because it is upstairs. It offers a quieter and more intimate atmosphere. You can sit at the counter by the grill and watch the chiefs cook if you like. Top of the Market has a great variety of fish to choose from.

I wouldn't call this a destination restaurant. Or even a 4 out of 5 star restaurant. The food was good, lobster tail for me. It was quite large and a very reasonable price. The oysters were small and nothing outrageous, but considering where this place is, not restaurant row, it was enjoyable. If you find yourself nearby, this upstairs restaurant... More

Located on the second floor of the Fish Market is the latest stab at a good, upscale seafood restaurant. For those of you who have "experienced" the Fish Market, this is definitely a step up (literally and figuratively). One enters the Fish Market restaurant and waltzes past the lines and noise to travel up one flight of stairs to another... More
