I was invited on lunch by a friend who lives in San Diego. We started our meal with crab cakes which were yummy. The mustard dip was really a great. I had grilled sea bass with rice and coleslaw. The fish was grilled perfectly. Finally, the apple crisp was tasty. The view was marvelous. I will go there soon.

Choose outside dining to have a wonderful view of the bay. Ask for a table under a heater. I did not have a jacket and got a little cool before dinner was over. Food was amazing! I had the sea scallops which were a great choice. My husband said the Mahi was good as well.

There are two restaurants on this site. The Top of the Market is more expensive and offers the best selection of entrees. It is a favorite of ours when we want a really nice meal. Though there is not a dress code that I know of, I would always dress nicer to eat upstairs...no shorts, t-shirts or tank tops! Reservations... More

This sits next to the USS Midway and we stopped here after touring the ship for an appetizer & cocktails for sunset. We were able to get a table on the deck for the best view of the sunset, ocean & the ship. Service was very good. We had the artichoke crab dip which was very good. The cocktails we... More

We went late on a Sunday night and pretty much had the place to ourselves. We loved the scenery from our seating in the outdoor (enclosed) area by the bay. We dined on the first floor, for a finer dining experience you can go upstairs. The food was excellent, fresh and flavorful. My husband had the fresh catch moon fish... More

Stopped here for a drink after a Harbour cruise - and found they did ceviche. Ended up having lunch and dinner here...great ceviche lunch and an excellent fish dinner - both with excellent service, couldn't be faulted. Reasonable selection of good wines as well. Reasonably priced to boot. Would recommend to anyone....

I have been here many times and I have never been dissatisfied with the food or the service. I also love the fact that they have a fresh fish market in the front of the restaurant that offers a variety of seafood and smoked fish. They have an upstairs fine dinning that is separate from below. Along with the inside... More

We had the calamari and scallop ceviche for appys filled by the king crab salad and 2 prawn pasta dishes. The price was reasonable and the seafood was excellent. Coming from a commercial fisherman that lives on seafood that's quite a compliment.

This is a fish market restaurant combination. We ordered what was advertised to be fresh fish. It tasted fresh enough to us. However the local our relative got up from the table, and said this fish is not fresh. My father is a commercial fisherman and I will not accept this. It was somewhat embarrassing. Raised with fresh caught one... More

We were a big group of 25, and we ordered 6 kinds of fish. Each and everyone of them was overcooked, except for the monkfish. We just ended up ordering more of the delicious calamari appetizer. Visit this place for its nice location, and ocean view, but stick to the drinks/appetizers. We had a pleasant walk back to our hotel... More
