Seafood without shelling out!

Well, make your reservations early. This place is very busy and when you have a meal here you will see why. There are two levels at this eatery, the upstairs (The Top of the Market) is more formal with a diverse menu and wine list, ($$$$) while downstairs($$/$$$) is a more casual atmosphere with a... read more

Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. A must do when in San Diego. Spectacular views but not too fancy for well-behaved kids. Wait staff are excellent. Food is wonderful. Can't wait for grand re-opening

A very nice restaurant with the coolness and excitement of San Diego immediately upon it. The staff was great and the food tasted wonderful. I recommend lunch or dinner - you cannot go wrong. Love the swordfish

We had some great meals in San Diego but this was probably the best! Fresh tasting, perfectly cooked and well presented. It was delicious!

Never had a bad time always worth it. Unfortunately the place burned this summer so no go right now. Hopefully they will open again in 2016

This is now my favorite restaurant in San Diego. Unfortunately, they had a fire recently and it's not currently open but once they re-open their door, we'll be back. The bread is really good and the fish was cooked beautifully. It's in Seaport Village which is a great area to walk around if you're not from San Diego. If you... More

A long time fixture right on the bay that never lets you down. Two levels of service with always the best seafood in town to suit your budget. Never take a trip to SD without a visit here. Location, parking, views are the best you will find!

As San Diego is a coastal city, seafood restaurants abound. While the Fish Market affords a nice view of the water, there are many seafood restaurants in San Diego (They can be found at Seaport Village, the Embarcadero, Harbor Island, Shelter Island, the Chula Vista Marina and Ferry Landing in Coronado, to name a few) that also provide beautiful views...

Eat upstairs. The view is spectacular. The room is open and airy. Every seat is like a patio seat, but there's a big long shaded patio too. It's a great place for a business lunch. The service is prompt. The salads are terrific. Everything with seafood is terrific. You can order just about every sort of ocean fish that swims... More

The Fish Market is in one of the prime locations in San Diego, on the water next to the USS Midway Museum. I am a volunteer at the USS Midway Museum and a group of us docents go to the Fish Market after work each Wednesday. They take excellent care of us and the food and drink are good and... More
