You honestly can't have a bad meal at The Fish Market, or poor service. If you tell me you have, I simply won't believe you. My boyfriend and I have eaten at this restaurant probably 25+ times, in several locations, and it has been a consistent positive experience each and every time. Nice atmosphere too, although we especially like the... More

We had dinner there one night when we visited Santa Clara. The place was lively and the restaurant operation ran like a clock-work. The waitress was friendly. Food-wise, the oysters were fresh. Salmon was a bit average.

Simply the best place for a good meal in a good environment. I know the place since 2000 and since then it's my must go restaurant in the area.

The seafood is excellent, fresh, tasty, and well prepared. I have never had a bad meal there. I especially like their panko-breaded calamari steak. Calamari can be tasteless and rubbery if not prepared properly. This was outstanding, tasty and melt-in-your-mouth tender. The wine list is adequate. The only drawback is that it might be a little noisy in the main... More

I've been going here (and the one in Sunnyvale/Santa Clara), for decades. The quality of service comes and goes, but the menu has grown and the food has been consistently very, very good. Some of the best fresh seafood around, if you aren't at the ocean.

I have been to this restaurant several times when ever I am in Calif. I am from Boston so fresh fish is important; the food is very nice; fresh. The selection is vast. The staff is nice. I would suggest any of the grilled fish. The other items look and taste good but the sign of a good restaurant is... More

A pleasant restaurant with a fairly extensive and changing menu (depending upon the catch). Had two meals there (lunch and dinner) which were both fine. Fried calamari for lunch along with clam chowder were well done. Good portions. Dinner was excellent artichoke dip and then prawns over a very rich, creamy well done linguine. Good selection of beers and wine.... More

My son and I have dined at this location of the Fish Market quite a few times, (also the Palo Alto one) and the food is always delicious and fresh, the service good. Recently I went to the market part of this location, and Carlos and Kyle went above and beyond expectations to provide exactly what I wanted. I will... More

Many of colleagues suggest this restaurant to me. Their seafood is very good and fresh. My favorite dish is "King Crabs" although it's slightly expensive. I would like to go to Fish Market again when I visit north CA next time.
