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.

If you are in staying near the San Francisco airport, we can highly recommend Top of the Market restaurant in San Mateo. My husband and I had a great dinner tonight. He had the Canadian Petrale Sole and I had the Northeast Haddock fish & chips - both were excellent. The fish is fresh as well as the side dishes. The restaurant is upstairs in the same building as The Fish Market. Top of the Market is a more upscale and diffidently quieter than The Fish Market. So if you are looking for excellent fish dishes, great service in a quiet relaxed atmosphere, and are in the San Mateo area Top of the Market is your place.

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.
