I have been going to The Fish Market for over 30 years. The quality for price factor is still amazing. The bread and butter alone is enough to bring me back.

I have been here twice in the last 6 months, and on both visits found the staff friendly and attentive. Dined once at a table and once at the oyster bar. The oysters were fresh, and tasty. On both visits the meals were fair sized portions, great taste, freshly made. If you like seafood, I would definitely recommend this place.

I am not keen on fish but we were taking a friend for a meal, and it was her choice. There was a great selection of food (not necessarily fish), the service was excellent and attentive. One on the table had sole which she said it was delicious. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I arrived on Saturday at 5:15pm, and were surprised there was a 25 minute wait already! The good news is we waited less than 10 minutes. This was our first visit here, and honestly everything was correct. The menu was extensive, the hostess and server were both polite, friendly and professional, and our food arrived quickly, but...

I love The Fish Market Restaurant in San Jose at Blossom Hill. I've been here a couple of times and they never underperform, not in food or service. I usually get seafood from the fresh catch of the day menu, which hangs in the middle of restaurant. Always yummy. One time, I asked for a suggestion more based on what... More

We like to eat at the Fish Market every few months because it has good food for a reasonable price. We have learned to go before 6:00pm on the weekends to avoid the crowds - they don't take reservations. They have a decent variety of standard dishes, plus some specials based on seasonal catches. We like to share a cup... More

Terrific seafood mini-chain restaurant. Outstanding variety of daily-updated food with excellent fish and many other dishes. Had wonderful Sushi sampler for appetizer along with great sourdough bread. Had an incredibly tasty chipotle fish dish and a very tasty key lime pie for dessert. Service was excellent and prices were reasonable. A great overall experience.

I have no idea what these 4 stars and more reviewers are about. The family ordered several varieties of fish and chips, oysters, chowder and kids' chicken. Only oysters were ok or better. I swear, there was no difference between types of fish - it was fried to full eradication of any kind of taste. Scallops were entirely tasteless. Shrimp/crab... More

Wife and I dined here on a Sunday early evening. Place wasn't crowded but had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. Service was good and attentive. Food was average at best. I ordered petrale sole which arrived barely warm. Wife ordered skewered shrimp and bacon. Hardly any bacon and no bacon flavor. Seemed my sole sat waiting for the... More

The ambient is nice; the place is not too small yet you do not see too many tables as they are separated in different rooms. All paintings and pictures are about fishing and sea life. Service is just as good too. But most importantly, food is excellent! All seafood is really really fresh. They change menus every day (or so... More
