    I'm a huge fan of the whole baked catfish at Favori if you're in the mood for something ethnic.

      Or the orange roughy with mango salad at Xanh (upscale Vietnamese), or the cha ca thanh long (dill and turmeric grilled fish) at Vien Dong... mmmmmmmmm...

      Still love the Crab Cooker by the Newport Pier.

        Don't overlook Kings Fish House in Laguna Hills. (Guess what? They own Water Grill downtown.) Not as fancy nor as expensive but the fish is awfully good, fresh, done to perfection. Their oysters are as good as you could ask for. The other place, Salt Creek Grill, right off PCH in the center with Gelsons, has some of the best fish, too, that they grill over real wood fire, very hot, yummy with excellent sides, good drinks, good desserts, and a nice romantic date spot.
