King's Fish House - Carlsbad
I'm so stoked King's remodeled...the food has always been stellar, but now the ambiance makes this restaurant a go-to stand-out. Much needed in South Carlsbad!
Friendly staff, great food as usual, just a little wait after our reservation time.
Our full experience was just excellent. Great waiter, good food and he even tempted us with a very good dessert.
We celebrated a friend's birthday and also toasted to another friend that we just lost and loved to go to King's Fish House for lunch. Great food!
The best chowder, choice of oysters, fish sampler, salmon and sides in Oceanside! The only thing I didn’t care for was the happy hour drinks were only if you sat at the bar. Otherwise, I highly recommend this restaurant. AWESOME EMPLOYEES!
Very good food and service
My husband and I dined here on a Tuesday night, and the food was exquisite. I made reservations and had about a 5 minute wait, but we were able to look over a menu while waiting. The ambiance in the restaurant was beautiful and very dimmed lights, it gave a very nice forest feel. The service was good, my only comment would be our server was very professional and made great recommendations, although by the end of our time spent there, he was more distant and didn’t check up on us. The food was brought out in a timely manner and was absolutely amazing. I got the Atlantic Salmon with potatoes and asparagus. The balsamic glaze with the asparagus was an acquired taste, but overall grilled to perfection. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting a nice seafood dinner date.
As always, we thoroughly enjoy our dinners at Kings. Food is memorable, service is excellent, and we can easily hear ourselves in a conversation.
We had a party of five and sat around the oyster bar. It was a nice experience watching Rasson prepare fresh seafood. Carson was great. There was a lot of action at the bar and he still made time to make sure we had everything we needed. There was a great manager, Marinna who was helpful and really friendly.
Great service and good food. Nice outdoor seating. We stopped for a quick, nice dinner after a long day of travel and our waiter got that and was very efficient.
New Kings for us .. Carlsbad holds up the great reputation of the Laguna Hills location where we usually dine! When we were going to lunch in Carlsbad with a friend vacationing there, we were thrilled to find a Kings because it meant we would have a 5 Star experience .. and we did. Love the consistency that Kings offers! All had Macadamis but crusted halibut. Peefection!
Great fresh seafood. The amount of selections from raw to prepared, east coast to west coast is delicious.
Es bueno y de batalla. Comes bien y a precio justo. En cualquier sucursal es igual. Recomendable para dalir del apuro
We had an ocean view table in the patio. Beautiful day. Our wait person was very attentive. Recommended a special dish- was outstanding.
Good food, better service!
The only negative is that the waitress didn’t come back to refill our wine glasses. She put the bottle on ice but we had to pour it after the initial pour. I believe it was a training issue. Not a big deal to us but in a restaurant as good as this place it should have happened. She was very friendly and efficient.
Food was yummy. Server Carson was funny. Drinks were divine. See you next time.
Good clam chowder! Kids portions were larger than expected and delicious. Lobster sushi roll was not very good for California expectations. Will try another dish next time.
One of my favorite places. The staff is friendly and the food is great!!
Always great. Something for everybody. Great sushi. Nice place for drinks or a family dinner.
Eating out while on vacation
Amazingly diverse menu. Food was fine. The remodel inside is very nice and open feeling.
They were a bit understaffed this time we went, so the service (while cheery) was slower than usual.
We both had sushi (the caterpillar roll) and really liked it. The bread is always good and warm and the service was great.
Great place to meet. Blackened salmon and veggies are perfect after indulging on multiple plates of bread and butter! Carson waited on us and did a great job. His laugh is so contagious. He’s very quick and a fun personality.
Pleasant surroundings and comfortable seating at this fish oriented restaurant. However, when fish is the main attraction special attention has to be given to cooking time in the kitchen and delivery time to the customer. We ordered and were assured by the waiter, our salmon would be prepared medium rare, as it was the restaurant’s customary temperature. One order was delivered medium and the other medium-well. They offered to replace the dish and start over but we were beyond starting over and moved on. There is a reason there are few fish centric restaurants and that is because it is hard to do right.
On the positive side the had a nice selection of fresh oysters that were clean, fresh and delicious.
Excellent seafood, salads delicious and excellent service. A wonderful dining experience!
We ordered oysters and crab cakes to start and scallops and macadamia crusted halibut for our main courses. We shared a slice of key lime pie to finish out a wonderful meal. Everyone on the staff was friendly, professional and competent. It was a perfect lunch.
The food was good, the service was slow. After our server finally came by and took our order, it took 3 “oh your soup isn’t out, I’ll check on it” for it to finally come. I had the clam chowder and my husband got the seafood chowder, both were very good. We got the cold seafood platter, my only complaint would be the peel and eat shrimp were over cooked and difficult to peel. I would suggest wet wipes or a wet rag for people after they have to try to peel your shrimps. Overall the meal was enjoyable, Drinks were delicious, we would return again.
Great server! Great food and lovely decor. Oysters were grand and the steak and lobster was tender and juicy.
Absolutely outstanding. One of the best restaurants in the greater San Diego area.
This was our first trip to this area with our new rescue puppy. We were able to dine in the patio with her. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Our server was very good. We were told about the inseason specials. Outstanding.
We always have a great experience here. Food atmosphere and service exceptional. Particularly enjoy eating on patio.
We sat at the bar and Carson helped us. What a great personality! Food was yummy too.
Still our favorite restaurant in North County San Diego for seafood. The staff is always friendly and helpful, great seafood and cocktails.
King's is always great in every respect. The decor is beautiful, service impeccable, and food always great. We always have the Sand Dabs.They are so delicious you can't get any better. We will be back soon.
The usual excellent food with service to match!
Enjoyed. Food and service were good.
Ottimo ristorante di pesce con ampia scelta di crudi e non.
Although the waiter was nice he barely came by. When our food came out my halibut and side orders of macaroni and cheese and corn were cold. What was worse was my sons baked potato which wasn’t cooked all the way. Completely uneatible!!! The waiter, when he stopped by towards the end of our meal, offered to bring another one we politely declined. Then his manager brings one anyway. We told her we didn’t want it. She acted surprised even though you could see we were all done eating. She did offer desert and we declined. A very disappointed meal. We’ve eaten at the restaurant in Orange County do we assumed this one would be just as great. Very wrong assumption!! Will not go back. Paid $100 for three meals that were quite frankly awful!!!
