Doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is excellent. Fish tacos were delicious! Highly recommend this place. Parking is extremely difficult on the street but there is a public parking garage just across the street that's metered and only like $1 for 1.5 hours.

Clam Chowder was to die for! The Crispy Chipotle Calamari tasted delicious as well. Was in LA for 2 nights and ate at Fishbar twice. It felt like a nice neighborhood hangout with a great happy hour. I was perfectly comfortable at the bar as a solo female. Morgan took good care of me. Casual atmosphere.

A cute spot for lunch. I bet an even better spot for happy hour and appetizers with friends. The restaurant is small with a lot of tables in compact surroundings. We shared ceviche and coconut shrimp for appetizers. Both were good. We had the soup, salad and fish lunch special. The chowder was sweet and good. The wedge doesn't need... More

I have been here twice. Outstanding little place. Very crowded and popular with the yuppie and surfer crowd. Great food and very friendly and professional service. This time I had the Buffalo Shrimp appetizer and Mahi Mahi with a side. Both plates were outstanding. Very good drinks. This is a great place to grab something to eat and a few... More

Had really enjoyable dinner with family at Fishbar. Menu is extensive. Great cerviche. Excellent fish tacos. Lobster mac n' cheese was yummy and decadent. Service was friendly. There are quite a few flat screens which made it feel a little bit like sports bar which felt like it takes a way from the ambiance just a bit. All in all... More

On a Monday night at 7pm the place was packed. The tables are close together, which didn't bother us, but if you want private or romantic this is not the place. We had very good service. Food was very good ... pasta marinara with shrimp, grilled salmon, mahi mahi. Meals were generally around $15 with $22 being near the top.... More

A fairly new seafood restaurant that is a favorite of our son in Manhattan Beach. Good food in constrained quarters, so it is culturally appropriate.

What a way to end our 7 week trip of a lifetime. We caught the ocean express bus from our hotel to Manhattan Beach and walked to this restaurant for an early lunch. We were greated warmly and shown to our booth. We started with Washington State oysters with chilli sauce and fresh horseradish accompaniment. Yummo. Superb. Next followed the... More
