We stopped in on the way to the airport, it happened to be happy hour so we decided to try a number different starters. They were all good but nothing memorable or outstanding. It was very busy and all the staff appeared to be very attentive,

I was visiting on New Year's Eve and the restaurant had good service at the bar and in the restaurant. Plenty of options on where to sit. The bar service was solid with local brews as well as a menu that included steak, seafood and other items. The service was outstanding and was a real team effort. The price was... More

A great spot near the ocean to enjoy a large selection of fresh seafood! Try the Parmesan encrusted sole!

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.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
