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.

“Great fish, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

We dine here on the first night in town during a recent business trip. I had wild salmon while two other co-worker also has fish (mahi mahi and sword fish). They were great. I had house salad which wasn't that exciting, should of went for ceasaer like my them.
All and all, it was great dine. We are planning on going back there again.

“Very nice selection of fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2011

Big place, suitable for groups.
Lunch menu, which is a little cheaper but the portion size seems to be smaller.
The menu offers a good selection of fish with a lot of side dishes to choose from.
They even offer sweet potatoe fries, which were very good.
As starter, we shared platters of oysters which were prepared in different ways.
The waitress was very knowledgeable and explained the differences in flavor to us.
There is also a sales counter if you wish to prepare 'the catch of the day' yourself.
Very attentive service. Have been there with 8 people and our waitress did frequently show up to check on us.
Don't miss the White Chocolate Cheesecake, which was a perfect finish of our meal.

“Very Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

I've driven past the Fish Market Restaurant dozens of times and finally ate there. We had a reservation and were seated immediately while others waited. Great menu with lots of choices. Our food was delivered in good time and cooked to perfection. The place can get loud but the experience is still enjoyable. They also sell fresh fish from their counter but I noticed the prices were really high. Go there for the restaurant, not the fish market. If you want fresh fish from a market there are dozens of Asian markets with extremely good prices for fresh fish (Lion to name one).
Overall, we were quite pleased and would definitely eat here again.
