We really enjoyed Supper here as we both like seafood. The restaurant is a bit on the large size - but the menu on offer has a wide selection of choices and the food when it arrived is really well cooked and presented. My wife...More

The Fish Market is a San Francisco type restaurant with booths and efficient servers. The fish is fresh. I had sole, and it was very good. My clam chowder was average. It didn't come from New England, put it that way. The prices are up...More

Coming from the east coast of Florida I thought I had seem extensive fish menus . They don't compare to the offerings at the Fish Market . We shared a very fresh scallop ceviche with crisp corn chips . Just enough finely chopped peppers, onions,...More

Freeway close and the sourdough bread is served fresh and warm with butter for starters. Huge seafood menu and everything on it is pretty good. Great area close to the race track and beautiful areas of Del Mar and Ranho Santa Fe.

We were in a large room that was on the noisy side, but the food was great, our waitress, outstanding. Their sourdough bread is to die for. We both got fish, which was very good. Turnover was fast, we were in and out probably within...More

This place is always busy and the parking is tight, but it's worth a visit. I love the fish tacos you can get at lunch. At dinner I like the fried seafood combo when scallops are available. Perfectly fried cod-shrimp-scallops, not greasy and just the...More

This place is a little noisy so not recommended for a quiet dinner, but the food was great - many options to choose from. And the service was great too.

Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.
