Thank you for a great meal. The food was superb. Overall, our group had a very nice experience. It was a delayed holiday / thank you celebration for work staff. The only rating that was not 5 star was service, our wait staff was hurried and did not seem to have time for our table. Thank you again, looking forward to returning.

We were able to sit outside, the heaters provided us with just the right amount of heat. It was cloudy, so the brilliant sunset I had hoped to see wasn't there.... The staff made accommodation s for my daughter with her meal.

Really nice food and spectacular, the view is also spectacular, prices are good for the kind of food they have, been there like three times and this last one service was a little bit slow, probably because it was crowded and it was first day of the year, but definitely is a must if you go to San Diego downtown for diner

The wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and they got us a table on the patio overlooking the bay. Everything was amazing from my beautiful wife to the great food and the wonderful view.

We have been going to the Fish Market for years and always enjoy the dinner, service and atmosphere. However, this time we were very disappointed. I realize it was New Year's Eve, but I don't think that was an excuse for the poor quality food and service. I usually order the halibut, which is usually a nice thick steak size cut and I have to share as it's too much just for me. However, this time is was so flat and tiny that I ate the whole thing and was still hungry after dinner, and on top of that the vegetables were cold. Our waiter paid little attention to us and we noticed several tables being served before us. The only good thing about the dinner was our table location - at least we had a water view. It will be a long while before we go back!

Special occasion celebrating a birthday. Reservation was great. Asked for a view table but inside and that is exactly what we received. Excellent table with a super view. Food was good but the portion size seemed smaller than our last visit a couple of months ago. Service started strong but then faded. As this was a very special birthday celebration and I was VERY disappointed that there was no mention of our birthday celebration. Food delivery was slow and we had to ask for a drink refill. So for the price paid for everything the best part was the view.

Amazing views of the bay. The food was great. Highly recommend the fish and chips that were just lightly breaded with Pando and was just delicious. Took our family from out of town to see the Midway and then a short walk to the Fish Market. Definitely make reservations.

Fabulous fish restaurant right on the harbor! Loved by tourists and locals. Excellent food and service. More casual on the first floor and upscale on the second. Highly recommend!
