I have no idea what these 4 stars and more reviewers are about. The family ordered several varieties of fish and chips, oysters, chowder and kids' chicken. Only oysters were ok or better. I swear, there was no difference between types of fish - it was fried to full eradication of any kind of taste. Scallops were entirely tasteless. Shrimp/crab... More

Wife and I dined here on a Sunday early evening. Place wasn't crowded but had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. Service was good and attentive. Food was average at best. I ordered petrale sole which arrived barely warm. Wife ordered skewered shrimp and bacon. Hardly any bacon and no bacon flavor. Seemed my sole sat waiting for the... More

The ambient is nice; the place is not too small yet you do not see too many tables as they are separated in different rooms. All paintings and pictures are about fishing and sea life. Service is just as good too. But most importantly, food is excellent! All seafood is really really fresh. They change menus every day (or so... More

A wonderful place for lunch with my sister-in-law. Every bite a ten. Shrimp wrapped in bacon, scallops with prosciutto, roasted vegetables, scalloped potatoes, salad. YUM. And the service was great. Love this place.

The service was lousy, let me say that, right off the bat. We had reservations, but still had to wait, even though there were lots of empty tables. I think we had a newly-hired waiter. Regardless, the food was terrific! I had the Lobster Tail with scalloped potatoes and coleslaw. ( I originally was brought French fries instead of the... More

Whenever my bf and I are in the whereabouts of San Jose, we dine at The Fish Market and order oyster shots. The oysters are served in a shot glass in cocktail sauce and topped with fresh horseradish. It is absolutely delicious and savory. Our favorites are also the Panko style calamari steak, the fresh Californian sable fish (butterfish) and... More

Came here for a business lunch. Service was perfect. Our server had recommendations and comments about anything we wanted to know. I went with the smoked albacore. This isn't an entree, but was perfect for a lighter lunch. Locally smoked tuna, cheese, crostini. What else do you need? The people I was with eat here regularly and praise everything on... More

Love The Fish Market. Try the chowder, sashimi, cioppino or any of the fresh fish (trout, swordfish & blacked catfish a few favorites). Table service is great, but if you want to watch the game, sit at the bar. Wine list is good - they have Rombauer Chardonnay!
