Description: Two of our locations feature Top of the Market, a separate upstairs restaurant where guests can enjoy an expanded wine list, distinctive desserts and exceptional seafood offerings. Overlooking a quiet lagoon from its perch above The Fish Market is our Top of the Market in San Mateo. Opened in 1982, the intimate, elegant setting of this restaurant is enhanced by exhibition-style cooking and superior service. In San Diego, the feature, in addition to white linens, warm teak paneling, large windows and deck, is the spectacular San Diego Bay. Launched in 1989, Top of the Market in San Diego has continued to provide each guest with a memorable dining experience, starting with the best and freshest seafood available.

We initially popped in for Sunday lunch and enjoyed our meal so much that we booked for dinner the next evening.

The seafood was so so fresh and beautifully presented and the service was superb. The staff even went to the trouble of personalising our menu for our second visit.

The variety of seafood was wonderful and views from the outside terrace were stunning particularly for the sunset.

We traveled to San Diego for our second U2 Joshua Tree concert and combined it with my husband's 65th birthday celebration at Top of the Market. We started our day with a tour of the USS Midway and ended it here at this restaurant. This was one of the best restaurants we've been to in a while. We consider ourselves real "foodies" and travel quite a bit therefore good food, great cocktails and atmosphere are always key to a memorable experience. Top of the Market did not disappoint from beginning to end! Looking forward to our next good excuse to travel to San Diego just so we can go here again!
