All is great, but prices are now over the top, higher than most comparable San Francisco restaurants

First and foremost, the service here and recognition of our occasion was exceptional, and the bay view is beautiful. I would return for those reasons alone. The food was certainly not bad, but the halibut was overcooked, and I think they try to do too much with the sauces - they were a little on the heavy side.

It still feels like the fish market. Food was good but nothing out of the ordinary for San Diego cuisine. Service was amazing, but I felt like the quality of food and beverage was no where near the price nor was it on par with comparable restaurants (in terms of price) in San Diego.

Not a bad meal, but you won’t remember it a week later.

The gentleman host was excellent Friday evening (9/27/19) as were the waitress and her assistant.
We sat outside. The food was superb.

We came here because the reviews of this place were incredible. And they were absolutely right. The salads and fish we had were incredible. Our waiter Benjamin gave us excellent recommendations. It’s always great when your server knows the food when asking about them. We are here from NY on business and it was a perfect spot! Very beautiful views too. Highly recommend.

I went with my family with high expectations, given the elegance of the place and the great views, but very few times have I been dissapointed so much by the quality of the food. My salmon was overcooked and didn't look or taste good at all. Similarly one of the other fish dishes. I didn't complain to the waiter who seemed to believe everyhing was perfect and was not open to any criticism.

Reservation is recommended. If you book on OpenTable, make sure you have confirmed email since it may not show up in restaurant's system for some reason.

The waiter was a bit overbearing. The wait staff kept pushing the menu into my gut to make room for everything. The room was very cold, actually too cold. The food was acceptable, by not fantastic. In all, the price was a bit steep for what we received.

We had a quiet table with a view of the bay and the Midway Museum. Our server pointed out several interesting sights we might have missed. The scallops were fresh and perfectly cooked, and the wine he suggested blended beautifully. It was pricey, but worth it.

It was a bit noisy with the ladies that sat near us, however, hubby and I enjoyed our date night. Food was great, although salmon seemed to be a little dry. Hubby have the prime strip and he loved it.

We enjoyed an early dinner in a very private quiet room overlooking the harbor and Coronado. My oysters were excellent. My wife’s prawn cocktail was good but overpriced for the serving. Same was true for our swordfish mains. Excellent preparation but about $10 over area prices. Paying for the view and ambiance. Our servers, Sergio and Giovanni, were excellent, amiable, and very attentive. A special occasion restaurant.

The food was very good, but the fish selection on the lunch menu was somewhat limited, particularly given the variety of fish that was on display in the market case downstairs. The service was the best that we have had in years. Attentive without being intrusive; helpful and informative; friendly without being cloying.

The service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect as my girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary. The oysters were amazingly delicious. Best oysters I’ve ever had. For dinner we had the lobster tail and the swordfish. The lobster tail was over cooked which was a bummer because it was so expensive. Why didn’t I send it back? Because going to a nice establishment like Top of the Market I expect my lobster tail to be cooked perfect the first time. I mean it’s only the most expensive thing on the menu. It should be your ace in the hole. The swordfish was great though, no complaints there. The cocktails were very good as well! I will be back for oysters! Skip the lobster tail.

We had salmon, crab cakes, octopus as entrees. Not to disappoint....delicious. The salad with the beets and Humboldt fog was delicious. Topped it off with their special dessert. Probably our favorite seafood restaurant in San Diego.
