Very easy to find - suggest reservations in advance during busy dinner hours. We started with appetizers warm crab & artichoke dip, bay scallop ceviche, and ginger lime prawns; all three very good. The mesquite grilled fresh fish were all prepared nicely and very tasty. Their sauteed Sea of Cortez garlic prawns were a special winner - large prawns sauteed... More

Went here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor which has this as the number one restaurant in Santa Clara. I think the food was OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. In my opinion it seems a little overrated. I agree that the selection of freshly caught fish is huuuge and really great. I opted for a locally caught fish with... More

All the seafood is excellent. However, if you enjoy oysters or cherrystone clams on the half shell then I highly recommend that you try them here. Enjoy them with a nice glass of Albarino or Dr. Loosen riesling. Delicious!

My business friend and I had dinner her this week. We had the tuna and the swordfish. Both were outstanding. Service was great and even though they were very busy we always had what we needed. I felt that our server really wanted us to be there and have a great time. I love the United States for their high... More

Had the most delicious tuna. We arrived earlier than our booking but they were very accommodating for our party of 8 and set the table 30 mins early. Food was excellent and very flavoursome and fresh. Sashimi, calamari, everything was excellent including service.

Do not miss the happy hr bar menu appetizers unless dinner is on your mind then do not miss the early bird menu... Good food for sure, excellent for small or large groups and a fine place to simply hang and enjoy...

We got to the fish market early, having been warned in one of your reviews that it gets back logged and very busy later. We were rewarded by a $15.75 early diner dinner. It was delicious but much more food than we usually eat. The service was friendly and very quick. The place is noisy but friendly.

I live near the Fish Market and eat there at least once a month. It is very crowded during peak dining hours so show up early if you can. Eating in the bar during Happy Hour is a great deal; cheap well drinks and some of their best small plate food discounted. I tend to not order the regular fish... More

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.
