Where can I find the best Fresh Fish in RWC?

Any recommendations for where to find the freshest raw fish in the Redwood City Area?
Whole foods has been dissapointing me lately and I wondered if anyone has any suggestions.

Thank you.

  1. I have also been disappointed with Whole Foods in RWC. Next time I'm looking for quality seafood I'm going to go to Cook's in Menlo Park (on El Camino). It's a bit of a drive but always worth it.

      if you go to Menlo Park, you might find better fish at Draegers.

        Yeah, Draeger's has an excellent meat department. And a great wine department. Those are the two reasons to shop there, IMHO. I like Whole Foods better for everything else.

        Im very close to Cooks (southern redwood city) and I totally forgot about their fresh fish counter! I will give that a go next time.
        I will also check out Dreagers, where in Menlo park?

          They're in downtown Menlo Park, near the Trader Joes.

      3. Drager's in Menlo Park, or Piazza's in Palo Alto (on Middlefield, just north of San Antonio road. Not too far of a trip down 101).

          There is no better place for both fresh and cooked fish in the RWC area...

          1. If San Mateo isn't too far, I'd go to Marina Super, just off the Hillsdale exit of 101, for live fish. Also, we've been getting some excellent Petrale sole there.

            1. I've been having very good luck at the Stanford Shopping Center's Andronicos. They've had some freakishly good salmon the last few times I've been in the mood, and claim to get deliveries every day except sunday. Not the widest selection, however. I've been alternating between Dragers and Andronicos for special occasion meat and fish, and am starting to prefer Andronicos.
