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.

“One of Our Favorites”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've been eating at the Fish Market for 35 years. The food choices still attract a range of ages. It can be noisy and crowded for dinner on the weekend. Go early if you can to avoid a long wait. Or go on a week night when it is not so busy. The sourdough bread and butter is a winning combination. Seafood availability and price fluctuate with the market. The seasoned waiters and waitresses are friendly and tend to know the local crowd. We are almost always pleased with the service and food. Once in awhile something can be a little off, but the popularity of the restaurant has stood the test of time.

“Garlic Prawns, Garlic Prawns”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Get the Garlic prawns and linguini and you won't be disappointed! It dies have a heavy amount if garlic so don't plan on having a date or business meeting later. It's almost the season for perfect chocolate covered strawberries from them too!

“Don't waste your money. ”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Service was bad. Waited at least 5 min for our drink order to be taken. Bread that was brought was hard as a rock. My husband got a pasta dish that was gritty and was as if it was all the leftovers in the kitchen. I got blackened catfish that was too black. "Garlic" bread that came as a side with my husbands was also hard as a rock. Server had to be asked for drink refills. Save your money and go elsewhere.

“Could be better”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

I have eaten at the fish market many times. Fish is fresh and side dish comes cold each time.
Average service with a price tag that is much to high for the meal. I am always looking for something better.
