The waiter explained the salmon was flash frozen since the season just ended, so we chose the macadamia nut encrusted halibut and the yellowtail. Both were... More

This place is top notch. Our server was the best of all the places we dined during our stay in San Diego. He was on the ball, and made sure we were taken care of. Swordfish meatballs? With spaghetti, a new one for me. They were extremely good. Mexican spicy shrimp was tasty also. Wife had the Fish and Chips... More

This is a classic! I think I can say that it is best all-round fish restaurant I have ever dined at. The quality and choice of its menu; the friendly and knowledgeable serving staff; and the ambiance and “feel” of the place when we walked in, all went it made our party of four feel good. I don’t think you... More

We enjoyed mussels. grilled swordfish and scallops. The white Austrian wine was cold, crisp, and a perfect complement to a memorable meal. Service is very prompt, helpful and professional. Save...

My wife and I decided to do take-out to eat on our patio overlooking the ocean. We decided to order one appetizer and one entree to share. We ordered the calamari ($10.00), the Macadamia crusted halibut with sautéed broccolini, Yukon gold mashed potatoes and grilled pineapple salsa ($34.00) and the Brussels sprouts hash ($7.00). We were told the order would... More

As the name implies, The Fishery specializes in sea food and it shows in the freshness and preparation. One of us had the Opa, which you could tell just be looking at it was cooked by someone who knows how to cook seafood properly, and tasting confirmed this. Fish and chips, when done right, is great, and this Cod was... More

Food was good ... a bit on the pricey side but very tasty! Service was great! A bit of a wait for a table even though we had a reservation ... they were busy!
