I went to the Enterprise Fish Company for Happy Hour on Tuesday night with a friend. The whole patio area was available and it was lovely to sit outside in the warm sunshine. We shared the mussels and clams and an artichoke along with two glasses of red wine. Came to under $17 per person and the... read more

We'd been several times to the location in Santa Barbara but this was our first visit here. We weren't disappointed. Although very expensive, this was one of the best lobster tails I've had in a long time. We also had the steamed clams and they were fantastic. Service was friendly and attentive.

Went for dinner last evening after 2 locals said its to die for.....not at all. I have had better ahi tuna in Pittsburgh. It was tasteless. Waiter was absent pretty much of time. Roses Dover Sole was DRY!! No need to come back. The plus was the drinks were good!

They were out of trout so they served me salmon: and it's a fish place! Disappointing all around: the crab cakes were tasteless.

I'm sincerely sorry you weren't able to experience our trout. That's definitely not the norm for us, and I'm disappointed that you weren't impressed with the other items you ordered. I hope you will give us another shot one day to show you what we're really capable of when it comes to our food! Wishing you the best, Amanda Harris... More

Great calamari (get it spicy with jalapenos!), oysters, and several other tasty appetizer specials at happy hour, along with several wines, beers and cocktails. Do it, you won't regret it.

A lovely restaurant, a block away from the beach that serves a very wide variety of fish dishes. At weekends, it's advisible to book as it does get very busy and you may have to wait a while otherwise. We have not been for some years before our visit last month but it was still as good as ever.

Very good and fresh seafood in a trendy location and fairly priced...but the service was very poor. The restaurant as 20% full, big place, we waited 8 minutes after seating and then had to flag down a server who said " oh, no one told me you were here" no apology and took orders and delivered food. He did not... More

I dined here solo on a Saturday night in February while in town for a business meeting. I wanted fresh fish while in town, did some yelp and tripadvisor research and felt this would fit my needs.

Excellent location and very easy to park, even at Friday lunchtime (parking lots are a dollar an hour right next to the restaurant). Business was booming today - not surprisingly as Santa Monica was at its picturesque best - sunny, warm with a light breeze. The food is perfectly fresh - a menu with loads of choice. I like the...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
