Great fresh food, I eat here several times a year because it's so fresh. The Downtown one has the great views...Del Mar doesn't but that's where I go unless I'm picking someone up at the airport,mill hit the Fish Market downtown, always great!!!

I was in the Fish Market for an annual dinner we have in the company I work for all the attendees to IPC Apex 2015. We were a very large group: 25 people. I made the reservation a couple of hours before arriving and they were able to acommodate us. The service was really good and kind. They were able... More

The location is wonderful and we enjoyed the view. However we went with a party of 10 on a Saturday night with a reservation. We went outside to get a drink before dinner and never got served. The waitress kept walking by but never took our order. When we finally were sat the waiter was slow to say the least.... More

After experiencing terrible service at Anthony's Fish Grotto (and walking out on them), my hotel concierge recommended The Fish Market. I am glad I took her advice! From the moment I was seated, I had bread delivered to my table within 30 seconds! My server was at my table less than a minute after that taking my drink order. She... More

Came around 7:30 on a Friday evening and the place was packed. We had about a 30 min wait - which was fine for us to sit on the bench outside and watch the ships/people near the USS Midway. Waiter was extremely helpful - the sourdough bread was to die for! We both had fish for dinner (amberjack and swordfish)... More

We stopped her for dinner after touring all day at the Midway Museum. We parked in the lot at the Midway and walked the short distance to the restaurant and this is advisable if you are doing both because parking is very limited at the restaurant because the lot also serves the park. The wait was quick and we sat... More

My husband and I ate dinner at The Fish Market in February 2015. Although we decided to sit inside since the weather was a little chilly, the restaurant has a very nice outside dining area with an amazing view of the water and the USS Midway. The food and service were really good – the waiter was happy to accommodate... More
