On business trip and went looking for fresh seafood. Did comparisons around the area and this was the closest location. Sat at the bar and had great servers and food. Happy hour oysters were great, bread service was sourdough, and went with garlic prawn recommendation from the server. It was great!! Highly recommend if you are looking for good food,... More

We have been going to The Fish Market for decades! Absolutely love the food. They serve both New England style Clam Chowder (white/cream soup) AND Manhattan style Clam Chowder (tomato based), the latter of which is my personal favorite. Trout is outstanding, as are their Louie salads. As with any seafood (other than shrimp) I'd stay away from the Oysters... More

This location has been here from a very long time, I love the food and so does all the family. We always come here for some kind of celebration. Depending the time and day it does get busy but I have yet to complain about the service and food. I definitely like the chiopino and pasta plus the steamed clams... More

I ate here with my Aunt early on a Sunday evening at the beginning of June. I had visited the restaurant previously, though not for several years, and had found the food to be good if not memorable. Unfortunately on this visit it was memorable for the wrong reasons. The starters were edible, though the bread that was served with... More

I've eaten here twice with coworkers. We always order a variety of plates with different sides and then share it all. I love their Alaskan Salmon, but I especially have to call out their sides. I think I've had them all and they are all fantastic. Just great food if you like fish.

Went with a business friend for dinner and had the best seafood dinner. We had reservations at 6:45 in a weekday and it was still busy; thank goodness for the reservation. We got seated right away by the friendly staff. I started with the peach sangria and it was very good. A little overpriced at almost $10 glass. I ordered... More

The cioppino is packed with flavour, taste and freshness. I suggest one large size of cioppino with pasta for 3 people. For Cioppino lovers - this is one of the best places for Cioppino. The only reason I gave them 4/5 is because we didn't enjoy the fish taco.

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.
