Track your seafood with Fish Tale

Water is precious along our Central Coast — we offer filtered water on request. Straws available on request.

All of our seafood selections are Seafood Watch Best Choices, caught or farmed in ways that don’t harm the ocean. We source ingredients from local farmers, ranchers and fishermen who use environmentally responsible practices.

The Department of Public Health advises that eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs or seafood may pose a health risk to everyone, but especially to the elderly, young children under age four, pregnant women and other highly susceptible individuals and compromised immune systems. Cooking foods reduces the risk of illness.

We add an 18 percent gratuity for parties of seven or more.
