“Excellent meal at King's”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

King's is another restaurant that my family always has to experience when we get to San Diego. The fish is fresh and the service has always been excellent. Lots of different beers on draft, too. We enjoy the grilled fish; the fried Combo plate was disappointing this time.

“Excellent Fish Selections”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Kings has a great selection for the fish lover and all of their dishes are well prepared. I was there yesterday for lunch, but have also been there several times for dinner. They also offer sandwiches, including burgers, for non-fish lovers or for children.

It is a good lunch spot because it is centrally located in Mission Valley area of San Diego. There is also seldom a wait. Yesterday I had their seared ahi with sesame and it was excellent. Several times for dinner I have also had their wild salmon, which was the best salmon I have ever had. However they only offer this when it is is season. The other thing I really like about Kings is that if you are trying to diet, there are lots of very good low calorie selections. I have a great meal, but I don't have to feel guilty.

The atmosphere is nice, but yet also casual. There is either inside or outside dining. The service has always been excellent. We were there a few weeks ago with 3 other couples and each couple wanted separate checks. They were very accommodating about this.

I first discovered Kings about 6 months ago and since then it has become my favorite place for fish. Definitely recommend it for either lunch or dinner.

“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

This restaurant, part of a small (4 or 5 location) chain will appeal to fans of McCormick & Schmick who boggle at their high prices. That is not to say King's Seafood is cheap--it isn't--but it is more reasonably priced and the menu is almost as extensive. There is plentiful outside seating which, although it overlooks a shopping mall parking lot, still manages a somewhat rural feel. The food is fresh, there is a generous selection of wild-caught items and the service is efficient without being obtrusive. The wine and beverage list is more than adequate.
