Will was overworked or overdistracted, I am not sure which one. Nice enough server, but not really paying attention to what we needed. Like taking food and drink orders at the same time, nope. Just drinks first, then a ten minute wait. No refill on hot water for tea. The flavors were good. The world's smallest crab cakes with arugula... More

Ha a 5:30 reservation. Finally seated at 5:55 with plenty of seats in the restaurant. Waiter promptly took the order soup came out in 5 minutes, main courses took another 1/2 hour. Even getting the check was slow. The food was tasty and fresh.

Came here for an early dinner (5:15) before a movie. Restaurant was busy but we got seated right away. Had to flag down wait staff for water, bread and butter but once we got going, dinner came quickly. We usually eat at the fish market in Palo Alto and this restaurant was essentially the same for quality and quantity. Very... More

We ate here two nights out of three. Absolutely wonderful service. Absolutely delicious food. It will be a place we return to when visiting San Jose in the future!

Every Christmas Eve morning, I purchase crab at the retail counter for dinner that night. As I waited for the crab to be cracked and cleaned, I enjoyed a mimosa and a cookie. It's a great way to keep a customer happy. The crab was delicious, but was not cracked though easy to do at home.

THE FRESH FISH PLUS OUTSTANDING SERVICE MAKES THIS A RESTAURANT I'LL RETURN TO OFTEN, THIS restaurant serves fresh fish & their service is outstanding! Being a fish lover I bought clam chowder @ their sales counter & it was rich, creamy & filled with clams. I took my friend there for her birthday & they served her a decadent piece... More

I went into this restaurant because it had the only parking lot with spaces available. Glad I found this restaurant. Their fish has to be the freshest I've had in quite sometime. Had the grilled swordfish and grilled vegetables... cooked to perfection. Odessa was my waitress and she made the meal even better.

The fish market can either be really amazing or not very good, the fish is awesome but the veggies are not so good, but great service.

I have been going to The Fish Market for over 30 years. The quality for price factor is still amazing. The bread and butter alone is enough to bring me back.

I have been here twice in the last 6 months, and on both visits found the staff friendly and attentive. Dined once at a table and once at the oyster bar. The oysters were fresh, and tasty. On both visits the meals were fair sized portions, great taste, freshly made. If you like seafood, I would definitely recommend this place.
