    Tuesday night. 5:30 reservations. Reservations absolutely necessary. Seated promptly with the hostess trying to find a table instead of a high-top (in a walking cast). Hostess doing double-duty as server. Unfortunately that meant we had to wait an extended time to even order. Like more than 25 minutes after we got our apps. Apps: Guac and chips. Yes please. Very large portion and very fresh. Macadamia crusted calamari. Strips not rings. Meaty and again, large portion. Sweet and spicy. Almost a meal. After about 30 minutes, another server (perhaps manager) checked on us and took our order. Next course. Went with apps. Lobster bisque. Smoothest I’ve ever had. Delicious. Creamy. Crab cakes. Robust, well seasoned, and served with a Wasabi sauce. A small side salad as a garnish. Plenty to share. Overall the food was delicious. While I can’t blame our hostess/server for the lack of attention, we ultimately did not receive 4 or 5 star service. Out and done in a little under 1 hour & 45 minutes. On balance, a “4”.

    The restaurant is definitely understaffed so the service was terrible. It took a long time to receive our drinks. Our waitress was nice, but she was unable to keep up since she had so many tables to serve. The person assisting her was rude and would basically throw the dishes down. He didn't even remove the bowl with the mussel shells or our dishes when it was evident we were done. The mussels were good flavorwise, but there was a little sand in them so they needed to be rinsed off in the broth. My halibut was good for the most part; it was a little well done around the edges. My husband's rockfish was undercooked and the broccolini was definitely undercooked. There was no manager around so there wasn't anyone to even complain to. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant until they get more help and a better chef in the kitchen.

    Had high expectations for the different fish and other dishes, but was greatly disappointed. Service was outstanding, and drinks, beer were excellent. Good ambiance, but for the prices, not a value. Pan seared Halibut at $40 was almost a ripoff. Even the $25 burger was mediocre. Best food was the lobster bisque, clam chowder and panko coated prawns. Those three items were piping hit, and tasted fantastic. Servers were amazing.

    The restaurant was a 15-20 min walk from the downtown convention center. We were seated immediately and the service was excellent, the restaurant was quiet and not crowded for a Fri evening. The calamari appetizer was well cooked and plated nicely, the sauce was a somewhat conventional sweet-and-sour. The garlic bread was good, again somewhat conventional. The seafood entrees (and their sauces) were enjoyable. Overall a good experience.

    Service was terrible. We understand that they were short staffed but we waited an hour for our food with no updates or anything from server until it was about to come out. Food was bland and steaks were not cooked well. Filet mignon tasted like it was marinated in vinegar. Mussels and truffle fries were good. Second mule was not in copper mug and no explanation given. Calamari was overcooked and chewy. Brussel sprouts were good. Definitely did not feel we got what we paid for after spending over $500. We were celebrating a birthday and the entire dinner experience was a let down.

    We were a group of eight who needed to get fed. Earlier in the day some of us had passed the GQFH and thought it looked promising. Open Table allowed us to see if we could be accommodated. Within 15 minutes we made the short walk, been seated and were perusing menus. Staff and server were personable and friendly and the menu easily adequate, although we were surprised that fish and chips were not an entree choice. Food arrived quickly and was very good. No issues and good food. Easy.

    Our waitress was amazing! But when we walked in the whole place seemed to be filled with smoke. We all ordered our entrees and mine was the catch of the day which was swordfish and was great! My friends boyfriend got a porterhouse steak and asked for it medium rare, but it came out super well done he couldn’t even eat it. Our server was awesome she was super accommodating and brought us a free dessert and took the steak off the menu. My boyfriends scallops were super salty. Overall the food was just not good enough for the price we were paying. Unfortunately this was a one and done restaurant.

    Our party did not have a great experience at Gaslamp unfortunately. Most of the food was mediocre. My husband like the Cioppino. I ordered the ribeye and it was inedible. It tasted like old meat and it was cooked far too long. Service was decent, but they definitely were understaffed and we had to find our waiter for our ticket.

    We just moved to downtown San Diego and visited Gaslamp Fish House last night for dinner. The food and drinks were both great! The salmon entree is absolutely delicious. Nice atmosphere, too; active but not overly noisy. And the server Max earned the distinction as our favorite server ever. We will be regular customers and highly recommend the restaurant (and Max!).

    Sat outside and typical homeless and noise problems. We all were going for a casual dinner and ordered salads and sandwiches . Food was very mediocre and for 6 people we ended up with a $400 bill. Too pricey for what we got. Perhaps they’d be better if you ordered a pricey piece of fish.

    Arrived after 8 PM and were completely rushed through our meal. Appetizers and drinks all came out together and when we requested to wait for our main course were told no, the kitchen was closing and we had to order NOW. Glaring lights from the open kitchen gave zero ambience.
