Three of us visited Enterprise Fish last week (late November) for a late lunch. We were treated to the best lobster bisque and some wonderful (and cheap!) oysters. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the outside seating on a nice afternoon was a bonus. We enjoyed both items immensely.

Still have not eaten inside the restaurant which is akin to a pub. Outdoor seating attracts with a menu of generous small dishes.Service is honest heart full and separate themselves from the crowd of other restaurants in Santa Monica.No sophisticated cuisine just good in all its simplicity.

I would highly recommend. The lobster bisque with puff pastry is perfect. We split the twin lobster and saved just enough room for the chocolate lava cake. Reasonably priced and our service was spot on.

I went to lunch and was served quickly. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. It is located close to Santa Monica pier. The menu was a bit limited for me. I ordered the salmon and my guest ordered the lobster which they said the completely enjoyed. My salmon was cooked well. The spinach dip was great. All... More

In 1999, my husband, kids and I spent a month in LA for my husband's job. We stayed in a regular hotel room (no kitchen facilities) so we went out to dinner every night. Our favorite place by far was Enterprise Fish Co in Santa Monica. Last month I had the chance to travel to LA on business and went... More

Reserved a table here for dinner with friends. Parking is usually an issue at this location so if you can Uber it, you are not going to spend 15-20 frustrating minutes circling the block as that's no way to start this enjoyable & relaxing dining experience. Got our table - I had added a comment asking not to be put... More

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.
