Great place to get fresh fish, although pricey - worth it for the freshness. And their sourdough is to die for!

Good food - service was OK for our party of 15. Still trying to understand why a fish from New Zealand would be "fresh" but nonetheless everyone enjoyed their meal.

Great for dinner with the family, a date sitting at oyster bar or watching a game over drinks at the bar. I've never had a bad experience here in the past 10 years of going. Price point matches fois/service quality well.

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!

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.
