Reasonably broad menus for both food and drink. Well executed items, but not stellar. A specialty side of lobster mac & cheese was fine, but nowhere near the best I've had.

Great food, with a good variety on the menu. we were recently here with our 2 and 4 year old. They did a great job with the kids, and allowed us to all enjoy the meal. Prices are reasonable too.

Those of us who live around the South Bay take our fish tacos very seriously. Fishbar has a great fish menu, and top notch Tacos. Great bloody Mary's also....parking can be a bit of a hassle depending on when you go, but the visit there will be worth it ....great food!.

The food was good, and the menu was large. Had a hard time deciding what I wanted! Good atmosphere and location, but there service was not very good when I was there.

We happened on this restaurant based on reviews. So glad we did. The mahi mahi mediterranean was delicious, the green beans with garlic and bacon were the best. The wait staff was friendly and fun. Great food!!!

Our group stopped into FishBar after biking 10 miles down the oceanfront bike path from Venice to Manhattan Beach. Only two (uphill) blocks from the beach, it was easy to find and we were so glad we went. We started with a round of drinks - two bloody marys (my friends) and one white sangria (me). As soon as the... More

We used to love this place--it was one of our favorites--but the last couple of times we ate there the food has been terrible. Tonight was the worst. All of our food was served cold. Grilled salmon--cold. Mashed potatoes--cold. Two orders of the main reason we would come here--salmon chowder--both cold--like it came straight out of the refrigerator. We both... More

The food is amazing. Fresh, delicious, and affordable. The servers seem to get pretty easily overwhelmed though, so you have to be a little proactive to get your orders in.
