The Fish Market-San Jose
We were a group of 13 and had a large private room (room for others) service was good but had ran out if crab? One order was forgotten but finally arrived. We had a good time. We found prices high, we had 2 kids/1 baby/ 1 adult didn't eat and our bill was over 420.00 with only 3 drinks. Averaged at 40.00 per person.
Always a good evening the The Fish Market.
Superior service, good food.
Our lunch was great. Nine of us had a wonderful meal.
Took the server a bit to start waiting on us but once he did he was good. Food came in a timely manner and was quite tasty. Prices were reasonable for the dishes.
Very crowded on Saturday night for dinner although we came early and had a reservation
Food is mediocre at best
Fried calamari appetizer is a small portion “boosted” by fried peppers
Skewered scallops were undercooked
Skewered prawns had no flavor
Linguine with clams was ok but some clams were sandy
Will not return
All the dishes were just mediocre. - fish, salads, soups, sushi, pasta. Nothing especially tasty or remarkable. I guess that's why the place was practically empty at 7 PM.
We enjoy the extensive menu and fresh fish offered at the Fish Market. A reliable restaurant for good food.
Ordered: New England clam chowder; Shrimp Tacos; scallops wrapped with prosciitto; fish and chips; shrimp and chips. Shrimp tacos were great. Fish and chips mediocre; Shrimp and chips was vey disappointing because they were over cooked. Coleslaw that accompanied the shrimp and fish dishes were dry and tasteless, almost none edible. Scallops wrapped with prosciutto looked over cooked and was over cooked. Tried to give them away, but no takers. This is my fourth visit to this establishment but yet one of the visit was fulfilling.
Horrible service. Waiter did not know menu or how to serve. I had to show him on the menu that they did indeed have bottled water. Checked in on us every 5 minutes because I’m sure he messed up with the table next to us. We could hear complaints to a manager. We barely finished dinner and he brought us the bill! Didn’t offer us coffee or dessert!!!! Food was delicious! But service can make or break an evening!
We had reservations but still had a long wait to be seated. We were seated in a corner away from the main crowd. Our service was not responsive and the soup took 30 minutes and was warm. Dinner took a long time and was cold when it was dropped off. When I couldn’t find our waitress I complained and the manager came to the table. We waited a long time but they finally brought another dinner. It wasn’t hot off the grill, but was warm enough. They didn’t charge us for the dinner. We won’t eat here again, it was New Years Eve and the experience was exhausting.
Thoroughly enjoy our time at The Fish Market-San Jose. Reservations were honored and service was excellent (even though it was New Year's Eve). Food delicious as well. Will surely re-visit soon. Thank you.
Even with reservations at 6:30pm and arriving 10 mins early, we were asked to wait for a table until 7pm. Once seated we waited again for someone to come by to take our order. Finally flagged a busboy to give our order. The waiter came 10 mins later to ask if we were ready to order. Food arrived 15-30 mins later. The crab dip was not good with hardly any crabmeat. The clam fettuccine was watery and no flavor. We ordered the cioppino without pasta and of course it came with pasta. We hardly found any whole pieces of seafood except for one prawn. Again taste was not good and disappointing. Will not return to this restaurant
We celebrated New Year’s Eve at the Fish Market. We got seated where I had requested. We didn’t have any appetizers as we opted to have dessert instead. The crab was amazing and the steak was cooked to perfection. The only disappointment was that it took a very long time to get our dessert about 30 minutes. I love the fresh fish here and the variety!
One of us got hot food delivered about 10 minutes before the other two of us in the party - 10 minutes later the fried food arrived cold - both meals - cold. How did we wait 10 mins extra for cold food and no apology?
Thinking twice about fish market next time.
Great service and food. Allah our server was perfect
Please changes the tomatoes back to the way they were. The new recipe has no taste, too oily. Also, our rush was not cooked all the way.
Love the local Dungeness crab!
Very Disappointed. Reservation made for 3:00pm to take my disabled Father to Christmas Eve Dinner at the Fish Market. Showed up at 3:00pm and they rushed us to a table-asked for booth. They sat us in booth and we remained there for 20 minutes without anybody coming to us. I saw a waiter and asked if we could order a drink. About 10 minutes later the waiter approached the table and said I need you to order your food right now because we are closed. I was floored! Why would you take my reservation made 3 days ago when you were closed. I asked for a Manager, he unable to do anything but say sorry we are closed. I then walked across parking lot to Black Angus and asked them if they could accommodate my Dad and I for Dinner. They said absolutely and were surprised at what I just told them. I walked back to Fish Market to get my Dad and the door was locked and did not want to let me back in to get my Dad. At this point I am very angry at what is happening. I am so disappointed and furious at what the Fish Market put us through. My dad is 84 years old and on oxygen and I am moving him from Restaurant to Restaurant so we can have a Christmas Eve Dinner. Very Sad they offered us nothing or to even help me with my Dad, they just waved to us as we left. I do have to say that Black Angus went above and beyond to help us. Special thanks to Kristian Maldia, our waiter at Black Angus-Blossom Hill for the Best Service we could have asked for. Again, this is not the way Fish Market-Blossom Hill should have handled this. Very Disappointed in Management. Don't take a Reservation if you are closed!!!
bread and butter are the best part of the meal. My crab salad was just ok and my daughter's crab sandwich was mushy and tasteless and she only had a bite. Calamari was delicious
I won’t be coming back. The fish was OK but nothing great, and the sides were old tasting. For the price we paid there are much better places to eat.
We had a nice private table. We were able to visit & “catch up”.
Everyone in the party enjoyed the selection and the service/food. Was a good experience.
Fish and chips combo was delicious. Noise level is high and if you were hearing aids could be annoying. Service was good. All servers and staff were very courteous.
Minimum wait. Slow service, they were very busy. Server was pleasant and very nice. A bit pricey for just an entree
Hiking group end of year
Always great food, good wine selection, fresh fish, and good wait staff!!
This place has gone down hill. A group of three had a 7:45 reservation on a Sunday and I don’t know if it was cause it was close to closing. But the food was overcooked and looked like it was just thrown on the plate- like the cook was in a hurry to go home.
Service was ok. But I’ve had better food and experience in the past. Not sure if I’ll be back.
Excellent food but I must be honest my wife's serving of rice was comical like 2 tablespoons who does that?
I got violently ill after eating here. My other dining companions did not. My guess was the scallops, which tasted off.
Went here as a break from turkey on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and it was excellent. Great fish, and our waiter was truly outstanding. We'll be back!
Very Poor Customer Host and not seated for 30 minutes in-spite if having reservations for 7 pm. Not seated until 7:30 pm. What good Open Table Reservation for if they cannot seat us on tome
The Fish Market just does a nice job with seafood ! Our server did an excellent job as well .
I had a great dining experience at the Fish Market. The service was exceptional, and the food was absolutely delicious.
I highly recommend The Fish Market to anyone looking great food at a value price.
Never a disappointment
loved the chiopino. lots of fish, good balance of flavors. perfect for low carb diet!
As usual, the service and food were excellent. My wife and I are frequent visitors, and each time is a solid dining experience. Even when busy, our wait staff was on top of refills and attentiveness without being overbearing. I highly recommend this place for date nights, family reservations, and other situations where you would want to go for good seafood and excellent service.
Food was fresh, I had food allergies so they were very attentive. Excellent experience.
The fish market is one of my favorite places to go, however, it's not consistent in either the food or the service. The service was excellent this time, but I ordered the crab legs and they were slightly warm I think they should have been steaming. They still tasted good but would have been better had they been steaming.
The food was good but some times we had to ask for things that should have been automatically done
