Extremely popular for good reason. Excellent fish, even better bread coupled with good service. Count on waiting for a table.

The Fish Market always has excellent food and excellent service. We go early to beat the crowd. Their Bloody Mary's are really good!

Had the cioppino. Wow was it good. Also had the scallop ceviche as appetizer. Very flavorful. The service was prompt. Our food came out as ordered. I thought their prices were fair.

We walked to the restaurant from our hotel. Waited in the bar for a short wait. Dinner was good - always love the chance to have good seafood.

I have been here a number of times and have seen the service go down pretty consistently. I visited on a Sunday night for dinner. I went to the bar area to get seated right away but nobody waited on me. I went back to reception to get a table but the only staff there was explaining the history of... More

I enjoy the Fish and Chips and that you can switch the chips for another side. We always get great service and our food is delicious. The Fish selections are good and the augratin potatoes are so yummy. Delicious selections.

I was excited to go here, but left underwhelmed. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't good either. The oysters were on the 'fishy' side, which inevitably means they've been out of water for awhile. The soup and Crab Louie salad were both also just ok.

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.
