Great Happy Hour

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

I love coming here because it's sure to please everyone. It's perfect for all kinds of occasions. There's an Outdoor, and Indoor, a table clothed area, and a bar area. I can get busy, but It's busy for a reason! The value of what you're paying for can not be beat, the quality of food, the drinks, the atmosphere is... More

Our visit tonight is a sad reminder of how one bad element in an evening can compromise the entire experience. Out of fairness, I'll preface the negatives with the positives: the food here is very good. Our server was very helpful. However, upon deciding that the 'Specialty Margarita' didn't appeal, the three of us requested three classic margaritas, straight up.... More

Went to EFC for dinner with a friend I've known since high school - and that's a long time ago. This was my first time at this wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere was welcoming and not pretentious - my kind of place. There was a tremendous selection of fresh fish and my Blackened Salmon was outstanding. I asked for a extra... More

We received a high recommendation from our hotel that this fish restaurant would deliver. I can report that although I cannot pick one thing that is poor about the restaurant our experience left us wanting on a few fronts, we couldn't exactly pin point what our reservations were with pin point accuracy, however have these points to make.

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!

Mike, I'm so disappointed to hear your food didn't live up to expectations! That's the last impression we wanted you to leave with, and I'm truly sorry your ahi tuna wasn't up to par. I will follow up on this to ensure it doesn't happen again! I hope you'll give us another shot to impress you in the future. All... More

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.

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.

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.
