This is my favorite place to eat when visiting San Diego from Arizona. Best crab legs ever. I especially enjoy eating at the bar where we can watch all of the amazing chefs. Especially enjoyed Austin on our last couple of visits.

We have spent a week in San Diego eating 2 to 3 meals a day at the highest rated restaurants and Top of the Market is one of our two favorite dinner choices.

View was lovely. Parking, tour buses, and crawling through the crowds at the Fish Market downstairs was not lovely. The Restaraunt itself was dated and ridiculously overpriced. My husband and I had a cocktail, Cesar salad, and fish and chips with a beer. Drinks and salad were well done, good. The fish and chips were flat, greasy, and not light and crispy at all. Fries were very average along with the tartar. The highlight of the day was our server Amanda; pleasant, attentive and very professional. The pricing for this meal was excessively overrated. Too much of a tourist destination.

Don't go if you are strapped for time. Our reservation was for 8PM and we were seated at 8:30. Slow delivery of food kept us there until 10:30. My charge card receipt included a charge for a crab cake that the waiter said was complementary. It also did not reflect his 20% tip. They did try to make it up to us with two free campaigns for our 40th anniversary. That said, the food was magnificent.

Went to the restaurant for our 35th anniversary. Came from Las Vegas area to enjoy some time in San Diego, including eating at the Top of the Market. Menu printed especially for us had "Happy Anniversary" printed at the top. A nice gesture. Food was outstanding, matched by the service. A little noisy. Prices were expected but still some shock when the total bill is presented for you to pay. Yes, I would go back and yes, I would recommend it to others, with a caveat about the cost.

Went there on Easter Sunday and also to celebrate our daughter's 18th Birthday. Our server Benjamin was very personable and had great suggestions for our two children who have never been here before. We started with the grilled octopus, crab cake, and prawn cocktail as appetizers. All was so cooked well, my favorite was the crab cake, all crab meat, yummy! For entrees, we ordered two surf n turf, one with lobster tail and one with king crab legs $92, but the portion was very generous. My daughter had the halibut which was amazing and I opted for the scallops, I felt it could have been cooked on the outsides just a little more, but it was still delicious. We had a window seat as requested and they also added a special touch on the menu with read "Happy 18th Birthday" which was very sweet, my daughter felt so special.

We've been celebrating our anniversaries at this special restaurant for the past 8 yrs. Absolutely love the setting and view, and the food is exceptional. However, the restaurant has recently increased prices to the point where it's very difficult to justify spending $50 for one entree. Would love to recommend the restaurant and food, but the price is difficult to justify. I will miss this place.

We have been visiting the Top of the Market for 30+ years. The food, service and ambiance is great. This one has a great view of the ocean. They had made a couple of changes to the menu removing an item I typically have. But it was still a great meal and overall experience. There are so many seafood options in San Diego it is hard to choose. You won't go wrong picking Top of the Market.
