Recommended by hotel, went twice. First for just a snack after landing and last night for dinner. Restaurant packed and went back as liked look of fish on display and what we had first evening although expensive. Good complimentary bread. Fish and chips good, Alaskan cod really good. I had tilapia but salsa with it lacked depth. Side dishes underwhelming.... More

I really loved this restaurant. It's huge. There is a raw bar and a fish market before you hit the bar and dining room. Walls have fishing theme decorations. Ate at the bar and the bartender couldn't have been nicer. I ordered the large cioppino and she said for $2 more, you can get the lazy man version where they... More

It was OK. Prices weren't too high and they accepted reservations, which is somewhat hard to find in the area for a middle price range place. The portions were not outrageous. They were out of a number of dishes, so that was disappointing. Service was average. My plate was somewhat cold, but we had 10 in our party and no... More

I have to say I am impressed at this place. I had the scallop ceviche and the crab cioppino. The seafood tastes fresh, and the scallop and salmon were cooked perfectly! And the portion is very generous for that price! There is plenty of room, including two bar areas, enough table seating and outdoor seating. Staff is friendly. Grill top... More

I go here often while in the area. Big menu. I like the fresh fish and healthy options for sides like roasted vegetables and cherry tomatoes. The bay scallop ceviche is also very good. Parking is a little insufficient. Happy hour goes late on Mondays.

Description
Our second restaurant, opened in 1979 in the heart of the Silicon Valley, has been as popular with local residents as it has with the business crowd. A comfortable and spacious cocktail bar adds to the energetic atmosphere of this casual dining restaurant. Be sure to arrive early for the counter seats at the oyster bar, as they fill up quickly.
