San Diego - fish - Sat night

I have no idea about any restaurants in San Diego, but i'll need one for saturday night. I did a little Yelp search and was wondering how these restaurants are or if you have any suggestions for better ones.

Sushi Ota
Blue Water seafood market
South beach bar and grill
oceanaire seafood

I'm looking for a really good place where we can get great fish, not necessarily a fish restaurant. Sushi is definitely an option, the fresher the better.

any guidance would be appreciated, i would need to make a reservation sooner than later once i decide.

  1. Where will you be located?

    Sushi Ota is in Pacific Beach and you should probably get there early if you want a seat.

    South Beach is in Ocean Beach and their claim to fame are fish tacos. It's a pretty informal group and it tracks young

    Blue Water is very informal, think cut offs and flip flops. Its a restaurant/fish arket combo

    Oecanaire is downtown and is the most upscale of the lot you listed.

    All 4 of these places will provide good fish in some form or another. Where you end up is probably going to be determined more by where you're located, whether or not you've got transportation and what kind of ambiance you want and in what price ranges.

    To your list you might think about adding The Little Fish Market or King's Fish House, especially if you're going to be in the Mission Valley area.

      thanks- we will have a car so we can get around fine. a friend recommended Georges at the Cove and Cafe Chloe, i think either of those could work out nicely. yeah, cut-offs and flip flops is not the ambiance i want for this dinner :)

        George's is now George's California Modern and it's nice, food is good. Cafe Chloe is also an excellent choice.

        South Beach is also kind of a cut offs and flip flops type of place too.

          Cafe Chloe is very good but it's not a fish place, if that's what you're specifically looking for.

          If you do Sushi Ota, you may want to make reservations. Cuts down on the wait time.
