Went there many times in 1980s and they were expensive but had very good seafood. Just went to it last night and my wife and I were terribly disappointed. Food extremely expensive, unimpressively tasteless, and very small portions. Pretty sure we will not be going there anymore when we visit Stanford in the future. during
The Fish Market made me love seafood! I've never been a big fish person, but their dijon tilapia with mango salsa was the first thing I ever tried, and it's amazing! I've since branched out to teriyaki mahi mahi, dover sole with an AMAZING buerre blanc sauce... my husband could live on the cioppino, and my son loves getting fish and chips.
I usually skip dessert; it's not their strong suit, but the entrees (and their wedge salad!) make up for it!
