The Fishery Ratings and Reviews
We visited as 2couples.
The service was excellent, but not pushy
Calamari was great, as was the seafood soup for appetizers.
The braised swordfish was outstanding
We also enjoyed the swordfish Bologna’s and the crusted halibut.
Not your run of the mill fish dishes.
Crime brûlée was also top notch
Great evening eclectic fish dishes reasonably priced with some excellent reasonably priced Austrian wine.
We came to The Fishery on the last night of our vacation for fresh seafood . We had a group of 10 and they were very accommodating, the service was excellent and the food and wine were amazing. Good portion sizes and very good value. We will definitely be back the next time we are in townn!
Nice ambiance. Food was presented very nicely and was good enough tasting but did not possess a distinctive quality that would warrant noting. But the mist disappointing part of the dining experience was the service or rather lack of interest all together. After ordering our appetizers and entree’s, the next time our waiter appeared was to bring a dessert menu after our plates and glasses had been cleared. That would be acceptable if I had ordered a $3 taco and been given a numbered receipt to pick up at the counter when called, but not in a restaurant where the modest dinner for 2 was just over $100. Needless to say, i don’t think I’d return even if I was a Cass St. regular.
Easy parking for this darling smallish place. They also sell fish. There are two sides to the restaurant. The right in the corner is the quietest, as we had a "hard of hearing" person with us.
The staff was super and the food delicious. A nice place to go where the tables are not so squished together that you can talk.
Found this restaurant by looking at local places within walking of our air bnb; it was spectacular! Our waitress recommended a tasty wine in my price range and the seafood selections made it difficult to choose. Went with the macadamia crusted halibut with broccolini and yams; fabulous. I had a lemon parfait and my daughter had lemon sorbet, both refreshing palate cleansers after the meal.
The clam chowder tasted like something I could've bought at the grocery store. It was full of potato and not enough clams and not enough flavor. I ordered the Seabass which is my favorite fish and I've had it many many times while dining at other restaurants in San Diego. This came with a ginger lemongrass broth that was not only bland but completely took away the taste of the fish. The entire dish swim in the sauce and was horrible! The service was nice; they tried to make it up to me by giving me a free dessert, which in my opinion they should've taken the meal completely off the bill. I paid $62 for a lousy meal that I didn't eat !
