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.
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.
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!
Whether you’re in Northern or Southern California, there’s a Fish Market nearby. Our focus on quality and service has helped us grow from a single restaurant in Palo Alto to six locations, including our waterfront flagship in Downtown San Diego.
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.
