The Fish Market
opened in 1979 in the heart of the Silicon Valley, has been as popular with local residents as it has with the business crowd. A comfortable and spacious cocktail bar adds to the energetic atmosphere of this casual dining restaurant. Be sure to arrive early for the counter seats at the oyster bar, as they fill up quickly.
Best bay area fish eatery, other than that little place in Princeton (I forgot the name of it... Lisa's? maybe). Daily menu, fresh clams and oysters. Quick, knowledgable staff, impressive shucker even. The Fish Market has been our family's fave for decades, and always will be. Much better quality, assortment of fresh menu items and staff here than at the Orange County or Peninsula locations.
A chain with 8 outlets from San Diego to San Jose. I've eaten at 5 of them. Probably 15 times at this Santa Clara outlet. (My ex-wife liked this place). The Food? Think Red Lobster at 2X the price. For the price hike the fish can be fresher it's not always frozen, but usually. The oysters are always fresh. The sides are boring. I order the rice pilaf as it looks better than the baked potato. Broccoli/vege medley is steamed a la Marie Callendar's, ho-hum. Decor is cookie cutter barn like, wood interior warehouse with lots of big trophy fish hanging about. Full liquor bar. Always busy, always crowded. Reports on other websites say that this outlet has gotten particularly bad recently due to poor food prep, dirty tables, listless service, wrong orders delivered, etc... Sounds like they need to fire the manager. I ate at the Irvine outlet last January. It was pretty good. So quality hinges on the location. Be wary.
Best place to eat fish in the Bay Area. Service is also great. I have been eating at the Santa Clara Fish market for 25 years, and I have yet to have a bad experience with the service or the food. I recommend it very highly.
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the Fish Market in San Diego, but, it definately doesn't come close in comparison. Not that it's bad, it's just not as good.
The Fish Market in Santa Clara is a casual restaurant with fresh seafood at moderate prices (more expensive than say, a Red Lobster, but, cheaper than Sea Blue).
They have a chalkboard with the daily specials listed, and generally have a good selection. They shuck oysters and clams to order, and offer a variety of sauces and cooking methods for their fish.
I opted for the sesame crusted seared ahi on my last visit. This came with a wasabi sauce and was nice, but, nothing to write home about. But, still not bad for $23.
The restaraunt is basically a large room with a bunch of tables. Kind of like a cafeteria. It's noisy and bustling, so, not the right place for a romantic getaway.
Over all, if you're craving sea food and in the area, it's not a bad choice, and won't break the bank. Try if for lunch!
Until I got my appetizer, I had high hopes for this restaurant. The decor was a lot like many New England fish houses that I ate at when I was a kid. At the front of the restaurant was an oyster bar, and next to that was a fairly nice selection of fresh fish available (like at a grociery store) for purchase.
My date and I decided on the garlic/cheese bread and two cups of clam chowder (New England style of course). What we got was a hard, oily, loaf of bread with terrible mozzarella cheese, and thin, barely any clams, clam chowder. Needless to say, I was hesitant to stay for the entree we just ordered.
My date ordered Fish and Chips (but with shrimp instead of white fish), and I ordered the Scottish Salmon. The quality of the meal was a bit better than expected, but still not worth the price (about $16 for my plate, and $12 for hers). The fish was well cooked, as were the steamed vegitables that I ordered on the side. Her fries were crispy and the deep-fried shrimp was acceptable... though it did seem that her meal was right from a store bought frozen food box.
The only thing I can say about this restaurant, in the positive, is the service. Hands down some of the nicest people I've met at a restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly, despite her large number of tables. More than once food runners, or other staff would check our drinks. It was great. Unfortunately, we came to eat.
The Fish Market is so exciting. They not only have restrauant seating, and bar seating, but an oyster bar as well. The Oyster Bar is my favorite. You can enjoy anything on the menu and at the same time you can watch the chef's prepare the items that are served at the Oyster Bar. The pictures on the wall, the various displays in the restrauant and seafood market makes the ambiance fantastic. Most all the seafood is fresh and flown in Daily, very few items are previously frozen. You can watch the fish preparers cut the fish for the restrauant and Market. What a treat to eat either lunch or dinner. They also suggest various wines to go with certian entries. What ever and however you would like to be served is available for the asking. The Happy Hour is great also with various items at a reduced price along with your favorite beverage. Treat yourself to a wonderful experience and dine at the Fish Market with several locations through out California.
