    The food was fabulous! We loved the Truffle fries, Shrimp burrito, fish taco and the Mustard glazed salmon. The Lobster bisque was bland and we liked the ceviche, the chips seemed over done, though. The service was wonderful.

    Staff and service were great! Food was just too inconsistent to give a higher rating. My son and I both ordered filet Mignon and his was beautiful and delicious and cooked perfectly. Mine was tough and thin and looked like round steak. It was as if it was the last piece left. It wasn’t even an inch thick! For $42? Just very surprised a kitchen would send out two filets to the same table that looked nothing alike. My husband’s swordfish was delicious! My daughter’s rock fish was chewy and not good tasting. The mussels we had were amazing and the curry sauce was delicious.

    We arrived early for our reservation and they seated us immediately. Service was quick, the staff were kind and attentive, and the food was excellent. We picked this restaurant randomly during a search for seafood and it did not disappoint. We will be back…especially for the salmon!

    Christmas Eve dinner from hell. Lobster was cold. Broccoli looked disgusting. Steak was so tough I had to spit it out and it as cold as well. WAY over priced for a truly awful experience.

    The best part was the service. The food was ok, but nothing stood out. My husband had the halibut and I had scallops. The food tasted fine, but not outstanding. We also had dessert. I had the chocolate banana bread pudding and my husband had churros with ice cream. The bread pudding was ok, slightly warm. Would have been better if they had chocolate sauce instead of a few dollops of whipped cream and chopped strawberries. The service was fantastic. Our server was great with recommendations and very attentive.

    The food and service was excellent. The prices were high and the tables had no table cloth and were just wood tables. So, it was priced based on a high end restaurant but was quite casual.

    Food was superb. Crispy Brussel sprouts were some of the best we've ever had. Rock fish and the Daily catch of swordfish were also extremely good. $2.50 for bread...not a fan. Would go back on another visit to San Diego.

    Swordfish special was frozen fish. Tasted fishy. Had eaten there when it first opened and it was great. Returned and the wine was the same price but the servings were half the size. Probably not return.

    Having read several positive reviews, I decided to try the fare at Gaslamp Fish House. As I dined early, the happy hour selections were available. Anticipating small portions, I ordered several dishes. The server, Max, was very helpful. I was surprised by the fresh fare. Shrimp quesadilla, steamed mussels and a refreshing green salad arrived with little wait. While I should have ordered less, Max obligingly provided take out boxes for the leftovers. The restaurant was a great discovery. I look forward to sampling more of their competently prepared fare. In the midst of an area saturated with expensive restaurants with optimistic claims about their menus, I was delighted to discover this gem.

    Used to be our Go To place to eat before a play because they had a great Happy Hour Menu. Unfortunately now we are paying double the price for the same amount of food and appetizers we used to order. Food normally comes out pretty quick and is delicious every time. Service can be slow due to not enough employees on the floor and at the bar, but because of the proximity to the civic, it’s convenient.

    We went to two different shows downtown in one week. Had not been downtown for several years. We saw this place and went in, got a table immediately on a week night. Food and drinks were great! We didn’t even order big dinners, we ordered off the appetizer menu. The fish & chips was outstanding and way more than an appetizer. Chowder and salads also very good. We had another show on a Saturday and made a reservation for 4, at 6 pm, no problem, got right in and had another fantastic dinner. Would definitely go here again, anytime we plan to be downtown.

    All the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the room was well-appointed with a warm, welcoming ambiance. I especially enjoyed the variety of tasty sauces on each of the seafood dishes. They served a generous portion of fresh rockfish. My only critique is that I would have preferred it not so well done. They were also very conscious of their theater going clientele and our food arrived quickly leaving us plenty of time to enjoy our meal and get to our show on time.

    Overall, average. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, food was okay, ambience for a Monday was as expected. Happy hour pricing and options were well worth it. Some of our apps, as well as portions of our entree came out Luke warm if not cold. Staff were very apologetic and quickly remedied the issues. Dessert list is solid!!

    Appetizers were excellent: Brussels sprouts, crab cake, and calamari was phenomenal! Truffle fries, mac and cheese and mashed potatoes were excellent. My only complaint was that my ribeye was a bit grisly and the herb butter was over salted. They fishes also came out at different tempts, some felt like they had been sitting others were piping hot. They were busy. Definitely will be back. Great pre-show venue.

    The food is mediocre at best. We had clam chowder that was on the spicy side and swordfish that was a bit fishy. The crab cake appetizer was the best thing that we had. They did make a good cocktail and the service was outstanding. I would consider giving it another try.

    We had dinner at this charming restaurant Gaslamp Fish house because it was recommended in several sites. It is a casual place with excellent table service. Our server Max was pleasant, knowledgeable of menu items, charming and an overall great server! Food we ordered- calamari appetizer- though highly recommended, it seemed to have too much Mae Ploy sauce and not much else. Texture was good though. We had two Rockfish entrees, one cioppino and one garlic prawns. All dishes were very good. The rockfish was slightly bland for our palates but someone else might love it. Max was excellent and we are glad we tried this restaurant!

    We had a larger group of 8 people and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was really really good. Everyone cleared their plates! I was surprised because the restaurant was decently empty but that’s not a bad thing. I just was worried that because it wasn’t a packed out, that the food wouldn’t be good. Also, our waiter was so nice and attentive. He really made our dinner enjoyable. Would definitely go back!
