How Can We Help You?
Where does your seafood come from?
We strive to provide a wide variety of fresh, sustainable seafood from all over the world, including many local favorites. Our menus change regularly based on commercial fishing season calendars and taking into account current fishery management so as to ensure no species of fish with populations under stress are ever on our menus.
Do you sell fresh seafood to take home?
Yes! Our retail market is an experience of its own not to be missed. There is a retail market in every Fish Market – be sure to stop by after your meal. To learn more, click here.
What is the Top of the Market?
Top of the Market is a fine dining experience located literally on “top of the market” at our San Diego location and featuring a chef-driven menu in a white tablecloth setting. If you’re looking for a more intimate ambiance at our San Diego restaurant, this is where you want to be. Learn more about the Top of the Market here.
Can I purchase gift cards?
Yes, you can share the gift of delicious seafood by purchasing Fish Market gift cards, available online and at all of our restaurants. These cards are good at all Fish Market locations and at Top of the Market in San Diego. To purchase gift cards online, click here.
When are you open?
We’re open for lunch and dinner daily. The exact hours vary by the restaurant, so please check with the Fish Market you wish to visit: see locations
Do you take reservations?
Absolutely! Reservations are encouraged, but we take walk-ins at all locations as well. You can select your Fish Market location and then make a reservation online here.
What is the dress code?
California Casual. If you plan to dine outdoors, we recommend layers, sunscreen and sunglasses depending on the time of day.
Is there parking available?
Yes. To see details for your specific location, click here.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all major credit and debit card payments. We are CASHLESS. We ask that you please plan to use a credit card for your payment with us.
Can dietary restrictions and allergies be accomodated?
Yes, we make every attempt to accommodate all dietary requests and allergies. Since our focus is fresh fish, much of our menu is naturally gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free. Please ask your server for assistance identifying allergen-free / modifications and so that they can share your allergy with our culinary team. All possible variations may not be listed on the menu.
Is there a kid's menu?
Yes, of course! Children’s entrees are available to guests 10 and under and are served with a soft drink and scoop of ice cream.
May we bring a cake for a special occasion?
Yes of course! Our cake service is $15. In compliance with the Health Department the cake must be store bought; it cannot be homemade.
What are your corkage and retail wine purchase policies?
Corkage is not permitted for wines currently on our list. For wines not on our list, we offer $15 per bottle corkage on the first three (3) 750ml bottles. Corkage for any subsequent bottles is $50 per 750.
We do also permit the sale of wine for takeout. No more than a 1 case or 12 bottle retail wine purchase will be permitted per group/reservation/order per day in order to ensure availability to other diners.
Do you offer large group or private dining?
We love to be a part of your celebrations and business events. To learn more, select your location and submit an inquiry, by clicking here.
Are your restaurants wheelchair accessible?
Yes, all Fish Markets have disabled persons access.
Do you have outdoor dining?
All of our restaurants have outdoor dining areas.
Are your restaurants pet friendly?
Our San Mateo and Palo Alto locations do permit well behaved doggos in the outdoor dining areas. Unfortunately, due to limited space / high volume, San Diego and Del Mar do not permit pets on our patios at this time. No pets are permitted inside any restaurant location, but service animals are of course always welcomed.
What should I know about my reservation in light of COVID-19?
We will continue to follow the CDC, county and state guidance provided to support a safe, clean environment for employees and guests.
