Fresh from the sea
to your table.

Fresh and Local

The Fish Market serves only the freshest catches from waters near, far and everywhere in between. Seafood is our passion, freshness is our mission, and quality is our commitment.


Our simple, smoky, mesquite grilled fish made us famous, and that’s just a fraction of our menu. Find a familiar favorite, or let one of our “menu masters” offer recommendations based on your preferences for flavor, preparation and pairing.

Oyster Bar

We brought Santa Clara its first true oyster bar in 1979, and have been creating the classic oyster bar experience at our restaurants ever since. Feast on oysters, feed off the energy. Happy hour not offered in every Oyster Bar

Sashimi & Sushi

Bask in the richness of sashimi and sushi made with the finest, freshest fish delivered to our kitchen directly from esteemed seafood purveyors abroad.

Retail Market

Every one of our restaurants has a retail market showcasing the seafood we serve on our menu. Order almost any menu item to go, shop for live and frozen fish, or grab a box of ready-to-eat smoked salmon – and don’t be shy about asking our experts for cooking tips!

Our Story

In 1976, a sport fisherman, business partner, boat captain and gourmet chef joined forces to open The Fish Market. With a pure love of seafood and a single goal in mind, they went on to build one of California’s most beloved seafood institutions.

Our Fishery & Retail Market

Because freshness is so important to us, we own and operate our own seafood processing and distribution facility, Farallon Fisheries, thus fulfilling our commitment to being seafood people in the restaurant business. Our retail market lets guests take home live, fresh and frozen seafood straight from our boats and fisheries.
