Best Seafood Restaurant in San Diego
I am new to this board and would like to hear some suggestions for people's favorite seafood
restaurants in San Diego and what you like about them. Thanks so much.
I judge seafood places by how fresh is the seafood and do they have some creative dishes.
Ones that I like that are highend are Oceanaire, Top of the Market, McCormick & Schmick's, King's Fish House, Roy's and Donovan's Prime Seafood.
I know most of these are chains, but I find them to have really fresh fish and some creative preparations.
There are places that are not "seafood" restaurants like Blanca and Pamplemousse Grill, to name two, that have amazing seafood dishes that blow away most of the restaurants I have mentioned (Roy's being the exception).

I haven't found any that I love, but I enjoy eating fish at smaller restaurants. I recall having a decent meal at Solana Beach Fish House, and also a fish sandwich at El Pescador in La Jolla.
There are also similar ones in Bay Park but I forget the names.

Second "The Fishery". My favorite seafood restaurant in SD. Although I no longer eat swordfish, when I did, their swordfish tacos were my number one pick. I also enjoy their halibut, salads, and tuna sandwich. Great spot for both lunch and dinner. Now if only they had the view that JRDN enjoys.....
Very minimalist preparation, and not really a restaurant, but great variety and all sorts of good stuff. Point Loma Seafood. The oysters are a steal and delicious; they have lots of very tasty smoked fish, and they're right where the sportfishers come in, so they've got all kinds of good fresh stuff that they'll prepare simply and deliciously for you.

Not sure when you were last at Pt Loma Seafood, but last time I went they didn't have their usual line-up of smoked fish, the major reason I go there, because of limited space in the temp trailer for the remodel. I haven't been in a month now probably, but I am hoping they are back in their regular facility soon.
For American style seafood, Fishery or Point Loma are good basic places. For Mexican style, Marisco's Godoy in CV has excellent flavorful grilled Pulpos, Grilled marinated Pescado Zarandeado and Cheviche. They also have different HH daily specials.
