Top of the Market was was excellent. The crab cake was perfect and the portion was large enough to share. The view of the ocean and sunset was incredible. A lovely place to celebrate any occasion.

Two of our locations feature Top of the Market, a separate upstairs restaurant where guests can enjoy an expanded wine list, distinctive desserts and exceptional seafood offerings. Overlooking a quiet lagoon from its perch above The Fish Market is our Top of the Market in San Mateo. Opened in 1982, the intimate, elegant setting of this restaurant is enhanced by exhibition-style cooking and superior service. In San Diego, the feature, in addition to white linens, warm teak paneling, large windows and deck, is the spectacular San Diego Bay. Launched in 1989, Top of the Market in San Diego has continued to provide each guest with a memorable dining experience, starting with the best and freshest seafood available.
