I visited The Fish Market for lunch with a friend in May 2017. We ordered sea pass and halibut fish. We also ordered shrimp. What a tasty dishes. We totally loved it. The staff are friendly and helpful with food choices. I recommend this restaurant for visitors to San Diego.

The Fish Market was recommended at our hotel, and we are so glad we took their advice! We had the fresh lobster and "catch of the day". Both were excellent! Michael the Bartender was fantastic and makes a great homemade white sangria! All the staff was super friendly and all the food was excellent!

We had a nice dinner and view with delicious scallops, red clam chowder, and, when our waitress found out it was our anniversary, she treated us to a dessert to share. Just a lovely evening.

My family and I were in San Diego this past weekend for my husbands masters degree graduation. Being a lover of seafood, I checked reviews here for a nice family dinner.

This place is always slammed when I go but so worth the wait. The food is amazingly fresh and the service is great. There's a ton of seafood spots in San Diego but I always make sure to stop here. If they're busy there's an area to wait outside that goes right up to the water too. Great view from... More

When I first came to San Diego in December, my hotel concierge recommended the Fish Market. But when I first saw it, I assumed it was just a tourist attraction. How wrong I was. Sitting at the downstairs bar for lunch, I was delighted to find that the both the food and the service we're terrific. My chowder was terrific... More

We ate downstairs at the Fish Market. We probably should have tried upstairs. This wasn't the seafood experience we were looking for but the staff was friendly and accommodating.
