Went with the wife to happy hour. Wife ordered the Mussels, when delivered she told the waitress she only ordered the happy hour item, waitress said that was the happy hour portion. Huge and yummy. Drink were great with wait staff giving out "samples" of Tequila. Love the place.

I love seafood and it is not easy to find quality seafood at "reasonable" prices. Enterprise Fish is one of the few seafood restaurants in Los Angeles that I frequent for my lobster and Dover sole needs. I love that they have lobster nights, for less expensive and quality lobsters. I also favor their Manhattan clam chowder (not easily found... More

They have fresh sea food. We had a very tasty lobster tail, not too expensive, cosy typical American restaurant. Parking is easy.

The best fish and chip dishes...fresh, tender and just delicious! The seafood platter's scallop, shrimp, squid, cod were each delicious. Also the crab salad has good amount of tasty crab meat to make a real dish. Good dining experience!

We were planning on going to another restaurant but changed our mind and we are so glad that we did! The service was excellent and the food delicious! I had the Salmon Greek salad and it was perfect. My son had the Jambalaya and said it was the best. Then for the birthday boy the waiter brought out a delicious... More

I've always liked this restaurant but I've found that their service changes depending when you go in. It seems like a second shift of waiters and waitress's get off peak hours and it shows in the service. The service and attentiveness is slower and although they have good intentions, they seem to over promise and then they end up getting... More

About two years ago, I went to Enterprise and had a not so great meal. The fish I had tasted, well, fishy. When I was done with my meal, the waiter looked at my plate and asked if I had enjoyed my fish. I'm not usually one to complain, but I said I hadn't really cared for the taste of... More

I took my mother here for her birthday. The waiter, Joel, was excellent and did everything in his power to make our experience enjoyable. However, my cadillac margarita was like a thick lemonade.

Excellent late afternoon oysters and drinks. We also had spicy calamari, grilled artichokes, and margaritas made from scratch. We sat outside in the patio. Highly recommended.
