Met five friends for lunch at 11 am when they open because this place gets crowded. The fish and seafood is good and very fresh. The service was good but they were not too busy yet. It can be pricey but not terrible and the portions are good.

We received a continued... More

Had a chance to visit the fish market for a business dinner last night. It was great, the food was fresh, linguine with clams, but the service both at the table and bar was like being in your local hangout If you get a chance while you are in the area would definitely make a stop here

All I can say is that I eat a lot of seafood, and I have never been unhappy eating their food. Happy hour is a great time to sample some of their food at a non-seafood price. ie. cheap!

Recommended by hotel, went twice. First for just a snack after landing and last night for dinner. Restaurant packed and went back as liked look of fish on display and what we had first evening although expensive. Good complimentary bread. Fish and chips good, Alaskan cod really good. I had tilapia but salsa with it lacked depth. Side dishes underwhelming.... More

I really loved this restaurant. It's huge. There is a raw bar and a fish market before you hit the bar and dining room. Walls have fishing theme decorations. Ate at the bar and the bartender couldn't have been nicer. I ordered the large cioppino and she said for $2 more, you can get the lazy man version where they... More

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.
