My family and I enjoyed a wonderful meal inside near the window. We witnessed a lovely sunset during dinner. Food was great with a good value. The kids menu is perfect- great mac and cheese. It seemed that all tables have a pretty good view. I would absolutely go back again.

I had a few hours before my flight out of San Diego. This restaurant is on the Harbor within minutes of the airport. I arrived just ahead of the dinner hour crowd so was able to be seated on the covered deck on the water. It was a beautiful warm day. The menu has so many great choices of fish... More

My daughter and I ate here after a whale boat tour. We were famished. The food was good, the service nice. We sat outside right along the water, so the view was great. Portions were small, but overall we enjoyed our meal.

We were invited here for dinner one night, and honestly at first I was a little bit iffy because I generally don't go for restaurants strictly serving seafood. However, the place was clean, did not smell fishy, and they had a good menu with a variety of items to choose from. We ordered the ahi poke for appetizer, and it... More

We always like this restaurant when visiting San Diego. The appetizer was great--grilled shrimp and scallops. Our entrees were great also Halibut and Sea Bass. Love the view by the window of the bay. Waiter was more than cordial!! Adequate parking.

My daughter moved to San Diego a year ago and loves Sushi. So far she had not found a place with good Sushi. We ate at the fish market two years ago on a visit from Houston and suggested we try it. She said it was the best in San Diego and our fried shrimp and fish and chips were... More

I was skeptical. I wanted fresh fish. The reality is you cannot possibly decide on what you want from more choices of fresh fish than you have ever had. Amazing food. This is not an intimate setting, nor is it ideal for a serious business negotiation. But eat there! Somehow get there if you are in San Diego.

Watched a great sunset here, and the food was pretty good, too. Especially enjoyed the Dungeness Crab Cioppino--I had the "small" portion with pasta and couldn't finish it, and the seafood and sauce were really tasty.

We went searching for fresh fish to cook at home, and were very disappointed by this "fish market". It does sell fish, but more of a small selection than a market. After seeing that much of the fish was from other areas (Atlantic, gulf) or was farmed or previously frozen, and way over-priced, we left to contiue our search elsewhere.
