I have been to both Fish Markets now and they were complete polar opposites in experience. The downtown one was great, friendly and warm personable service, great food, and a great night. This one we arrived and first of all the hostess was uncaring, unsmiling, had the personality of a rock, and altogether not at all someone who should be... More

This place has been very reliable for dinner for years. Takeout is less reliable; often have found errors when opened at home.

The food was great but it was very expensive! The menu was all seafood except for just a couple of things. Luckily there was a kid menu.

We usually love this place. This visit not as good. First off the waitress seemed new and a bit unsure of herself. Maybe that is why she forgot to bring the appetizer we ordered. My wife ordered a salad that we said we would split, but of course, no second plate was brought. She also ordered the "Ducket's Bucket" which... More

Love the nautical decor as it is a fine accompaniment to the food. We started with the Wok Charred Edamame, which is a nice twist on the steamed version. The calamari was good but nothing special. One of us had the Sushi Sampler as her meal and liked it. The pan fried tilapia was a nice portion and quite tasty.... More

We ate here a couple of times for dinner during oue stay at the Winners Circle Resort (Next door). Fabulous selection of seafood prepared pefectly (Great Swordfish) and since my wife and I have allergies they cooked the food to meet our needs. A friendly staff and location right across from the Del Mar Racetrack make this an ideal stop... More

This is the best place to go before or after the races...the food is wonderful. I've had clams with linguini were great (lunch) and the lobster was huge at dinner...since we are from Tx and NM we try and eat fish while on the coast ***** a good bet ; )
