    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.

    Table of 7 meals were all brought out at different times. Yes we ordered a med well tomahawk, but did take a long time to cook- as wait staff informed us . Probably would be fine just don’t have a large party and don’t order med well done

    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!

    Good food a little understaffed. We both had the rock fish as main dish could have split between the 2 of us (Dinner was with my sister). Split a ceaser salad which was also good. Sister liked the Churros with vanilla icecream a lot.

    I am hesitant to share this gem because the next time I want to go I’m afraid I won’t be able to get a table if the word gets out !;) I had my second visit there last night when I took my son & goddaughter to celebrate her birthday. The craft cocktails were so delicious and unique. I enjoyed the filet mignon, my son had the fresh catch -& my goddaughter had the zucchini pasta which was amazingly delicious! Every bite on each plate was fantastic. The bartender was great - Helped served our dinner as well and brought out a special delicious dessert with a candle for the birthday girl that topped the whole evening off perfectly. Really good food! This place knows what it’s doing& is a taste treat. I’ll be back soon!

    Service was outstanding. Food was pretty good but a few items were a bit overpriced. It was too loud though. Table next to us was a shouting and talked nonstop. It was miserable to sit through. Not necessarily the fault of the restaurant, but they could put in some acoustic panels to help deaden them noise.

    The rock fish was good with nice lemon butter sauce (ask for extra on the side), grilled veggies and very good Cole slaw with raisins. Wife had a nice 10$ glass of Chardonnay and I had a good 8$ Mug of hazy IPA. Service was fast (35 minutes) on a Sunday morning at 11am for lunch before a show. Interior is nice with some TV’s on with sports (football the day we were there). Decent prices for the food and drinks. (Lunch prices every day of the week)

    Everything was entirely mediocre from service to VERY LOUD 5:30 bar crowd and sadly, food. Happy hour Oysters we’re the smallest I’ve ever seen. Bread was hot and yummy but didn’t come until after the entrees and was served with cold, unwhipped butter. Entrees: Surf and Turf and Halibut were all OVERCOOKED. Fish: overcooked to the point you could pick it up and knock it on the table. Surf: overcooked lobster. Turf: overcooked filet. “Medium” should be pink! What should have been a nice night out was a disappointment all the way around. And seriously drunks at the bar? Quiet TF down or go somewhere else! This should at least try to be a nice restaurant in the gaslamp district!

    Menu was well rounded and the specialty cocktails were different , good and were a good value. The recommended calamari appetizer did not disappoint. The fish special ( swordfish) and the salmon were good quality and tasted well. But the dissatisfaction came from the food coming out tepid which really detracts from good the main dishes could have been .

    The food was not good. We ordered surf and turf. The lobster tail was over cooked the steak was supposed to be a filet. The steak was terrible. Tough and hard to chew. It was not a good meal. Choose another restaurant. You will thank me later.

    The food was great as always but this ended up being during the heat wave and we didn’t realize there was no air conditioning in this restaurant. So although the food was delicious and the waitstaff (who i felt soooo sorry for) was friendly and professional considering the extreme heat, maybe the owners should have considered spending the extra money for some air conditioning for their staff and guests because the sweat pouring into my food and the miserable atmosphere was all i could focus on.

    Great prices and selection for happy hour. The only unfortunate issue is that we didn’t get to enjoy all of our food. The heatwave, plus no AC and zero airflow made for an unpleasant dinning experience. The chopped salad literally wilted before our eyes. Other than that oysters were fresh, clams were tasty and calamari was delicious.
