King's Fish House - Mission Valley
To create the ultimate seafood experience, we traveled down the highways and byways. We pulled up a seat, put on bibs, and soaked up the seafood experience: The no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards, and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable. The pleasure of preparing and sharing seafood was simple and genuine, and it brought out the best in everyone. Often we felt as if we’d been welcomed into somebody’s home.
That’s what King’s Fish House is all about- and we’ve tried to bring all of these ideas together into one single, spectacular place, filled with camaraderie and celebration, and the things we love best. Welcome to the House that Seafood Built!

We had a large group of 9. Our server (Chrysilla?) was very able, very friendly. Service and food were great.
Everything was tasty! Surprised us! We will be back. A little on the pricey side but all of our dishes were delish!
The food is a little bit pricey as it should be because of the value. It’s an above average seafood place. I definitely will be going back there and my grown children loved it! I will be going back too. Drinks appetizers and everything is just wonderful! Yum.
We had a very nice Easter lunch at King's Fish House Mission Valley. The food was good, not stellar. Sushi roll acceptable, crab cakes same, trout, also acceptable. Nothing extraordinary. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and accommodated a disabled person in our party beautifully. The kitchen was a bit slow, especially since there was only 1 other table seated in when we arrived. Not sure if they had to catch the fish first or ???
Fantastic as always!
My friend had a great salad although it was $20! I ordered the Sandabs at $18 and I don't even think I received one whole fish on the portion I was given. At the Brigantine in La Mesa, the portion is so large, I can never finish it. VERY DISAPPOINTING.
This place exceeded my expectations. Thank you for not playing loud music or using gang service for food.
Great service. We had a little hiccup on the order, one of our fish orders was overcooked. We sent it back and was more than happy with the replacement. I never expect to be comped in a situation like this, but they did, and were more than generous in comping other items we ordered.
Our server kept apologizing for a situation not in her control, which we did appreciate. We were not in any hurry that night and although we did have to wait, we had a very good time and meal.
We will definitely return.
Great food and service
Porciones muy pequeñas
Great food. Enjoyed everything I had. Sushi and oysters were great!
We ordered appetizers as soon as we sat down. 45 mins later no appetizer, several times the seever said "your appitizer wil be right out" just before the meal came out came the appetizer. It almot seemed as thoughg the server forgot to,put the order in.
The rice part of my lobster roll tasted very ood.
Food is always very good but pricey. love the crab legs. My husband had the oyster sampler and enjoyed them a lot, but again a bit overpriced.
We have mixed feelings about this restaurant. Some of their fish wasn't fresh and their prices tend to be on the higher side. But, their service was excellent and the staff were friendly with a "can do" attitude.
Food was great as usual and Carlos provided outstanding service. We're a fan!
Their food is so good! And service was great too! One person in our party has food allergies and the waiter was knowledgeable and helped figure out what could safely be eaten. Ambience is ok. (It’s in a shopping center so there’s that.) Overall a really good experience!
Even we reserved a table with the app the table was not ready and we had a additional 30 min for our table! The food took forever to come!
Was good we had 6 in our party, but someone in my party didn’t get served until we where done eating and another person in our party asked for medium rare, was served well done. They asked someone there to send back and get what they ordered. Come to find out it was the manager, they got upgraded and was not charged for both meals. They did right!
We've been going to King's for years, especially for special occasions, and the food and service are always good. My only suggestion would be that the round tables are too close together, to the point where you can feel like you're dining with the adjacent party.
Excellent food and great service!
The food was really good and the service was the best .
Excellent service and food
Wonderful all around - great service, nice varied menu, great food, wonderful sitting outside on the patio.
Fantastic waiter. Gave great recommendations
Definitely on pricey side but food is delicious and lots to choose from. I love all different seating options
I go to Kings all the time and usually I can count on the restaurant to have good food. I usually get the Ono. Unfortunately this time it was below par. Very fishy flavor. Which is not how Ono is. Disappointed.
This restaurant is not yet updated as is the one in Carlsbad. Food is consistent however our server did not get one order correct and had to redo it. Also, our server seemed to disappear and we had to put her down to get our check. The food taste and quality is always good and I will return again
Awesome experience all the way around. Everything was great. Thanks
I reserved a table in advance and put notes it was my moms birthday. I was hoping to get a better service since I let them know what event was going on
Visiting San Diego and selected King's based on location and favorable reviews. Food was OK, nothing special, but the service was where we had an issue. We ordered drinks and appetizer to start with before we ordered any entree. It took quite a while to get the drinks, but the appetizer came out pretty quickly. The waiter indicated that he didn't like the way the fried calamari looked so he had them prepare another order which didn't really add much time. Appetizer was good. We then ordered our entrees and another drink and it took forever for the drinks to show up and when they eventually did, they had the wrong order for my wife. They said they would correct and that they would not charge for the wrong drink, but again, it took far too long for the correct drink to arrive. We continued to wait for our entrees which showed up about 15 minutes after our waiter indicated that the kitchen was just plating the last item. We then noticed that my wife's drink glass had a big crack in it, but we didn't dare mention it because of the previous lengthy waits. When we asked for the check, we did get that promptly, but no apologies from the waiter or manager for all of the delays and mistaken orders. Very disappointing experience
Food was incredible and server was very attentive and friendly would definitely revisit this restaurant
Had no idea about this place but the menu was awesome! Enjoyed crab and lobster and don’t forget the oyster platter! Drinks were well made and service was outstanding. Thanks Edith! Going back soon!
Good food and service. A tad on the noisy side acoustically. Not bad for a smaller business lunch.
No matter how many times we've dined at King's, it never disappoints. And, we've been at all times of the day and night! I love seafood, and have eaten in restaurants that specialize in it all over the world...I can say without equivocation that there is no finer seafood restaurant anywhere. Nowhere have I seen a finer selection of fish and shellfish, not to mention that the preparation, which in my estimation is the litmus test, is always excellent. Oh, did I mention that they have sushi and sashimi? The staff is all very knowledgeable and pleasant, and the cocktails are yummy. For special occasions or just a quick lunch you can't go wrong at King's Fish House.
The service, food and dining environment were wonderful. My sweetheart prefers low-low moderate noise levels and was a fisherman at one time... so a bit particular. Dining here on a Saturday afternoon was wonderful. Able to make an "on-the-fly- reservation via Open Table; the noise level "just-right", server attentive to needs (split a beverage for us because new to us) and familiar with menu; food fresh and in satisfying portions!
We had a party of 12. Enjoyed the food. Our service was excellent. I have been to others in the chain and this was by far my best experience.
The noise level was very loud and the tables seemed too close together which further interrupted our nice dinner. I had to listen to the conversation at the table next to us.
Love the N' Orliwns BBQ Shrinp and the Fish and Chips was some of the best I have had in a LOOONG time. server was delightful ( and we kept her busy) Christian was great with taking the change ( increase) to my Open Table reservation. overall great dining experience !!!!!!!!
Muy rico siempre todo. Ciopino delicioso.
Our first time and we Love it . I love the food and ambiance
