Description & Atmosphere
The Fish Market is one of our favorite seafood restaurants on the
San Francisco Peninsula. It is located on the waterfront in San Mateo, on South Norfolk, across
from the Office Depot.
The casual-style restaurant has been very busy since it first opened in 1982. It features a full-service cocktail bar and lounge area,
a popular oyster bar, a spacious dining room and an outdoor patio. The dining area has high ceilings
with open beams and dramatic nautical displays.
There's also a more upscale restaurant, Top of the Market, located upstairs.
Enjoy fresh salads, delicious seafood and other fish specialties. We love their Seafood Marinara, Fried Calamari, Dungeness Crab Salad, Red Snapper, Garlic Shrimp... just about everything on the menu!
is also outstanding and you have to remember NOT to eat too much of it
while waiting for your main course.
Come with an appetite because
their portions are ample.
Top of the Market - 2nd Floor
This was the first Fish Market restaurant to feature "Top of the
Market," an upscale dining area — it's ideal if you're looking for something a little more formal than the Fish Market.
Top of the Market's menu is different from the
main Fishmarket menu... and it's a little more pricey. But it's definitely worth it, especially if you're celebrating a special occasion or entertaining clients or out-of-town guests. The food, ambience and service are excellent.
Enjoy lunch or dinner on the waterfront, dining
on fresh seafood and sipping a wine or beer. We like dining in the enclosed room out back, overlooking the deck and water.
Note: Outdoor patio dining
is only available in the summer months.
The Fishmarket is a great place for client lunches and dinners.
And it's an excellent choice for large group meetings and parties.
