This restaurant was packed when we arrived on a Thursday evening. You were fortunate to find a table in the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Sushi was served in the bar but not in the restaurant so I felt very fortunate as I love sushi. The service was impeccable and the ambience was very nice.

The location is great, but parking is rough. Service is good. My favorite part was the sourdough bread , amazing! The quality of fish is average for the the high price u pay. The crab Louie salad was good, pasta blah, fresh seafood plate was ok. Go for the Old Fish market experience.

Visiting from NYC, we didn't really expect anything too high end in the area, but we read some excellent reviews and decided to try it on a Friday night... we were impressed from the very beginning! The cars parked in front give you a good idea of the clientele, and the staff was immediately welcoming and unpretentious, despite the fact... More

Came for dinner with friends, started in the bar as our table wasn't ready (we arrived early) and tried the "Spicy Don" which was like a jalapeno margarita. I couldn't really taste the jalapeno, I was expecting a bit more spicy, but they were great anyway. Shared a beet salad ($16.25) for starter, came with fennel and goats cheese, I... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. The menu has something for everyone, and they were very accommodating to a gluten-free diner.

Thoroughly enjoyed yet another dinner at Market. It is a dining experience that cannot be matched in the area. Truly amazing food, deliciously fresh ingredients, beautiful presentation, knowledgeable staff. I go there every time I make it to San Diego area.

We had wonderful food and service last night at Market. My Salmon was terrific. My wife had short ribs that were tender and juicy. The restaurant was busy but not too noisy.

We started with the grapefruit salad which was a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. We had the yellow tail and salmon for entrees and both were exceptional. The atmosphere is more formal as compared to other places in the area but we brought a 6 year old and it was fine. Our entire meal was outstanding and the service... More
