Description: Our first restaurant has been a Palo Alto institution since its doors opened in 1976. With the brand new addition of an oyster bar, cocktail bar and lounge area, there are now even more ways to experience this unique restaurant. The expansive retail market remains a popular stop for local residents seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish.

went in for lunch last week , poor quality , so / so service , this is a seafood restaurant so the fish and chips would be an expected to be fresh and good , not so , these were as hard as a well used scouring pad and every bit as abrasive , spent $50 for 2 people , left most of the uneaten food on the plates , this used to be a O K place where you could pretty well figure on a decent value .

THE BEST I’ve ever had. I’ve been coming to this place for quite some time and they definitely make the best lobster with a garlicky, red pepper flake butter sauce. I don’t know if it was originally done like that. It’s possible my mother asked for it to be cooked that way. She’s very particular about her food and could open up her own restaurant if she wanted Nevertheless, deliciousness all around. I gave it a 4 star only because the side dishes get cold quite easily. Once in a while, they run out of whole lobsters and the parking lot is generally full (a good sign). We miss the old Chef Israel, but get great service from Aaron.
Enjoy!!!

The Fish Market has been a popular spot for all of the 20 years I have lived in Palo Alto. Good quality fresh fish, and over the years they have added more variety to the menu. Now they have kababs, tacos and not just grilled fish. As always you can order the fish of your choice grilled, blackened, etc. Usually possible to get a table since it's a good size place. I believe they still have early bird specials but I have never eaten early enough to use this deal.
