What a view!

I would recommend getting there early to either sit outside or get a seat along the windows. The view is spectacular. We went during the week and got there about 5pm. We took a taxi, but it looked like the parking was all meter parking. Everything was fresh! The food was very good, the... read more

WOW. You can sit at the oyster bar, sushi section, bar with TV or restaurant. Service is spot on (ask for Robbi, she was great!). Clam chowder was perfect; sushi fresh; crab salad...all excellent. But do try the crab and artichoke baked appetizer. YUM YUM YUM.

The location is going to attract a lot of tourists (like us) so the restaurant is constantly busy due to its great location and access to fresh seafood. We tried it out for lunch on the recommendation from an employee at the Grand Hyatt and were not disappointed. Service is great! Views are pretty darn good too. Food is what... More

This is the second time we've eaten here. This time we got there at 5pm and got a window seat. What a beautiful, interesting view of the harbour. Lots to see-boats, planes, birds etc. We started off sharing the ginger lime prawns ($10.50). Two skewers of prawns with the best coleslaw I've ever tasted! My partner had the clam bake... More

Not only a lot of great family memories but gorgeous views and excellent seafood. Definitely a little pricey but the food is fresh and delicious and service is always good.

Parking outside the restaurant is metered-- bring quarters. We went on a Tuesday night at 6:30pm. We waited in line to get to the hostess stand for about 15 minutes but we were then seated immediately. Food was not good not great. However, we do recommend the crab and artichoke dip. Food took an hour to come out -- we... More

This restaurant really knows how to prepare fish! Our family of 4 had two dinners here on our family vacation. The fish is grilled over hot coals (you can see them as you walk by the kitchen) and is delicious. We had swordfish, mahi-mahi, and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The sides are delicious and you have a choice of... More

We were touring downtown San Diego and wanted to have a lighter lunch. The Fish Market was located near the USS Midway Museum. The menu featured fish tacos, crab cakes, clam chowder soup, and even burgers and chicken for the non-seafood diner. They do have sushi available but for an extensive selection, you would need to sit by the sushi... More
