I have been here a number of times and have seen the service go down pretty consistently. I visited on a Sunday night for dinner. I went to the bar area to get seated right away but nobody waited on me. I went back to reception to get a table but the only staff there was explaining the history of... More

I enjoy the Fish and Chips and that you can switch the chips for another side. We always get great service and our food is delicious. The Fish selections are good and the augratin potatoes are so yummy. Delicious selections.

I was excited to go here, but left underwhelmed. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't good either. The oysters were on the 'fishy' side, which inevitably means they've been out of water for awhile. The soup and Crab Louie salad were both also just ok.

Met five friends for lunch at 11 am when they open because this place gets crowded. The fish and seafood is good and very fresh. The service was good but they were not too busy yet. It can be pricey but not terrible and the portions are good.

Excellent fish restaurant with a large and varied menu that is an absolute must for sea food and fish lovers. I had the crab and shrimp cocktail for starters, followed by the prawn linguine - both plates were superb. My colleague had the chowder and th clams on a skewer - again both looked the shizzle!! We received a continued... More

Had a chance to visit the fish market for a business dinner last night. It was great, the food was fresh, linguine with clams, but the service both at the table and bar was like being in your local hangout If you get a chance while you are in the area would definitely make a stop here

All I can say is that I eat a lot of seafood, and I have never been unhappy eating their food. Happy hour is a great time to sample some of their food at a non-seafood price. ie. cheap!

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.
