Had to drive around several times for parking spot. Good fresh food . Go early as it gets crowded around sunset.

We were on our way back from the harbor cruise and stopped for dinner without a reservation. They were able to accommodate us with no wait. We had a great view of the harbor. The food was delicious, however the service was a little slow.

I went to The Fish Market with a group hosted by my company. We went on a Saturday evening. It was crowded but we had our own room. While our choices were from a limited menu, it was enjoyable. I had the clam chowder as an appetizer, followed by a large portion of shrimp scampi style on a bed of... More

Most importantly, the food was delicious. Ahi Poke was one of the best things I have ever tasted. The crab cakes, something I normally don't enjoy were great. Everyone in the party enjoyed their entrees, but I will warn you, the Dungness Crab Cioppino is not for the faint of heart or for business dinners. The taste was prefect sweet... More

When we visit San Diego, our mainstay for fresh seafood has been The Fish Market. If you're into great food (and unbelievably well-priced for the location!), then this is the place for you. My personal favorite is the Cioppino after we share an appetizer of salt and pepper calamari. My wife likes the swordfish. Not much else to say about... More

Great! We had 7 total for dinner. They said about 15 minute wait. Went to the bar, got a drink, & no sooner we were told our table was ready. Great table looking out on the bay. Food was excellent, as well as the service. Definitely recommend!

After touring the Midway we stopped by the Fish Market for some lunch. The view from the patio was 5 stars! The menu was large and gave a great selection to choose from. The service was great and all around this was a very good choice. It was also very convenient since it is located next door to our previous... More

We turned up without a reservation after visiting the USS Midway. Its really close just a short walk and you pass the "save a kiss" statue. Great for a photo opportunity The restaurant is clean and was busy but we got a great table outside on the balcony overlooking the harbour. There's loads of outside seating to watch the harbour....

We were entertained by two fun and knowledgeable chefs. The fish was super fresh and you could get items off the menu really easy.

Restaurant is on the water and offers bar and bayside outdoor dining. Casual venue with delicious food and homemade French bread that complements your meal. All time local favorite for dates and families alike. I skip the side of veggies and double up on the potatoes for my sides because they are delicious 😂 !
