Description: Although a Peninsula landmark since 1982, Top of the Market in San Mateo is almost a secret discovery above the bustling Fish Market downstairs. This intimate restaurant overlooking a quiet lagoon evokes the sophisticated charm of the classic, timeless bay area fish house. The seasonal American menu features the finest seafood, meats and local produce complimented by an exceptional wine list.

Excellent food and definitely a few steps up from downstairs. Completely worth the extra $$. Sitting at the bar is fun because you can watch as your food is being prepared.

Literally a step up from the fish market because it is upstairs. It offers a quieter and more intimate atmosphere. You can sit at the counter by the grill and watch the chiefs cook if you like. Top of the Market has a great variety of fish to choose from.

I wouldn't call this a destination restaurant. Or even a 4 out of 5 star restaurant. The food was good, lobster tail for me. It was quite large and a very reasonable price. The oysters were small and nothing outrageous, but considering where this place is, not restaurant row, it was enjoyable. If you find yourself nearby, this upstairs restaurant can please.
