Stopped by the Fish Market for lunch and sat on the patio over the water. They have excellent food and a relaxing atmosphere.

We ate at the Fish Market for lunch. The service was excellent as was the food. I don't think you would be disappointed.

I ordered the yellow tail fish dinner and my wife ordered the sea bass dinner. Both dinners were over cooked. I felt like I was eating fish jerky it was so dry and over cooked. There was a beautiful view of the bay and I enjoyed watching the navy ships pass by. The bottled beer was good and service was... More

We went while vacationing in Cali - based on our hotels recommendation. We ate in the upstairs dining area. Our food was incredible as was the service. We were very pleased! Great views of the bay too.

We were recommended this restaurant for lunch by our taxi driver as the best spot in town. While it is the best spot, the experience felt as though the restaurant was trading on the location and forgetting about the rest of the service necessary to make dining a great experience. The wait staff seemed disinterested and the food was just... More

A committee I'm on decided to contact The Fish Market for a business dinner. The service was extraordinary, the food outstanding. I would very much recommend the Fish Market for a dinner meeting (we had about 30 people).

This apparently long standing hero of seafood fans in San Diego has no Achilles heal. It was a pleasure for our large group of 14...and seemed to be equally enjoyed by smaller groups and families. The food was well worth prices which some may consider a little high, and the only weakness may have been the coordination of the two... More

My son and I have been here twice now. Mostly excellent food, and the location overlooking the harbor is nice. Get the oysters or the chowder for sure. Skip the calamari steak.

Between all of us (9 including 2 children) we pretty much sampled the entire menu. Soo good. Do try the cioppino, it was delicious (strange that you can get pasta with it). Great views of the water and fast, friendly service.

It's hard to impress this South Louisiana girl who grew up surf fishing in the Gulf of Mexico; however, this restaurant did. We started with crab cakes and chowder. My New England chowder was a little too thick dor my liking but very good. Crabcakes were awesome! My swordfish was mild but flavorful. My husband ordered the Pacific halibut, and... More
