This seafood restaurant was really good. The drinks were strong and tasty which matched the the food. Service was excellent and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

We were there on MLK day, and ordered Tasteless mahi mahi, and tasteless crab louie- we think they were frozen instead of fresh.

The ambiance is wonderful - classic; the servers are knowledgeable and friendly; and the food is delicious! My favorite place to go when people ask "where do you want to go to eat."

We Italians usually have the presumption to be the only ones good at cooking pasta and most of the times, we are right. But this place has to be tried, never eaten pasta abroad as good as the one I had here (fettuccine with scallops and shrimps). The main lobster is another must, together with the crabcakes. The nice atmosphere... More

We were a party of 10 and were seated promptly for an early dinner reservation. The service was very good and there were few times when anyone lacked anything. Two cocktails, a Manhattan and a dry Belvedere martini were very good. Our Caesar salad, however, was a big disappointment. No garlic at all. I don't understand how anyone with a... More

The happy hour here cannot be beat. A great choice of cocktails, draft beers and California wines, and fabulous small plates that are excellent for sharing. Oyster shooters, satay, sliders, calamari and the must have Hawaiian Poke - seared is best. I am a part-time resident of Palisades, and I make it a point to go to the Enterprise every... More

From their website, Enterprise Fish Co. looks like it's going to be a modern, upscale restaurant with beautifully presented dishes. Based on my actual experience, I felt like I had just stepped into a slightly upmarket Red Lobster. I will admit here that I like to eat at nice restaurants when I'm on vacation. Unless I'm going for "local flavor",... More

The space is very casual. My clam chowder was very good as was the Jambalaya. In our group someone had the 2lb lobster and said it was great. Someone had the swordfish and said it tasted frozen and was prepared in a rather bland manner.

I'm so glad your clam chowder and jambalaya hit the spot, Ira! Those are two of our house favorites -- especially our homemade chowder. I'm sorry to hear your friend didn't enjoy the swordfish as much, though. We're only serving up the freshest, highest quality ingredients, but of course, you should be able to taste that fresh difference. If there's... More

Really great place for happy hour. It can get really crowded though, so get there early. Lots of appetizer and drink specials, the calamari and oysters on the half shell are the best!
