I live very close to this restaraunt and go fairly often. I have gone alone, with my sweetheart, a foursome and with six. I have always been satisfied with the food, price and service.

This was the first time in
This was the first time in more than 20 years that I did not enjoy my meal. The seafood risotto was an atrocity. The other folks in my party enjoyed The Fish Co's. normally exceptional cuisine. This gem has been a personal favorite for more tha 20 years, and will continue to be one of my regular spots. However, I will never order what should have been a simple Italian specialty here, ever again. Stick to the fish! Service, as usual, was excellent. Kate is personable, afficient and friendly. The ambiance is fine. The food quality is superb. Drinks are generous. One note - the soups, both clam chowder and lobster bisque are not to be missed. In fact, the biggest problem you would usually encounter is in choosing between the two!.

Thank you for such great service !

Much better than I anticipated
I have not been to this restaurant and many years. The fish was excellent. Presented beautifully, cooked perfectly and very tasty. The seasonal Halibut was really good and the portion was almost more than you could eat. You get what you pay for.

Great place to celebrate any event. The seafood is always delicious. I ordered the miso glazed sea bass with long garlic tossed green beans and risotto cake but the lobster bisque is a must have. Every spoon full was so yummy. Ended the meal with the macadamia nut cheese cake with raspberry sauce. Can hardly wait to go again..:)

Looking for Clams
On Fourth of July, my wife had a craving for clams but her favorite place was closed. So I hunted for an open place on the Westside and came upon Enterprise Fish Co. We had never been there before. Got a reservation through OpenTable and we were there. Parking was across the street in a metered lot. Very easy. We walked in and were immediately seated in a booth. Very active bar and dinner scene. We ordered artichokes, New England style clam chowder, clams in a delicious broth, and a sea bass in a miso sauce over asparagus. Everything was very tasty. Service was friendly and fun too.

We had a better experience
We had a better experience than the last time we were there. The server (sorry that I don't remember his name) was very attentive and helpful. He especially was patient with my 91 year old father which was very appreciated. Had the lobster bisque this time - VERY GOOD. everyone at the table wanted to taste it. The presentation with a puff pastry on top is exceptionally inviting, and the flavor was exceptional. Everything else that I tasted (including my own food) was good, but the lobster bisque was outstanding. I'd go back just for that!

The patio is where it's at!
Enterprise Fish Co is pretty well known in LA. The food is always reliably good with some great service to boot. The interior decor is in desperate need of a facelift. But the outdoor patio is absolutely stunning. I particularly appreciate that the music is always perfect for being both easy and sensual, yet energetic.
I always love coming here. Wish there were more healthy options on the menu, but it is what it is. Happy Hour can't be beat.

Good service, even better food!
Went with my two teenager sons and wife for lunch. The waiter was polite and nice. The service level is good. We ordered different dishes. My dover sole was ok, a little overcooked. My younger son ordered the scallop risotto. The potion was more than gernerous and the scallop was one of the best we have tasted. My wife ordered crab which was above average. My elder boy's shrimp and steak was above average. All in all, the experience has been pleasant, the food is good, bit expensive.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enterprise Fish Co. has it all! made a reservation one week in advance. Got an E-mail confirmation and an E-mail reminder. Was seated right at reservation time! Wait staff was pleasant, attentive and helpful and funny. Food was high quality, delicious, well prepared and presented and affordable. Atmosphere was lively and other patrons were friendly and enjoyable to dine around. Did not feel like an "L.A." nightspot. Felt like a great local restaurant. Great Job and Thank You!

Lunch at Enterprise Fish Co.
I have been going to restaurant for many years.
Not regularly, as it is quite a long drive from where I live.
It is consistantly good, never pretentious, and the food is always perfect.
I think that it is possibly the best seafood restaurant in greater LA.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I really loved the dinner. The service was great and my Enterprise Punch was so very good.

Fish Fit for a King or Queen
Everything on the menu is delicious. Swordfish is the best. I prefer blackened with their great sauce that has a little kick. But the lobster butter is to die for too on the regular seasoned swordfish. Scallops are huge and tasty and so are the shrimp. . Clam chowder authentic with lots of clams, not just potato chowder with a bit of clams. Potatoes romano a family favorite but rice pilaf nothing to pass over either and if you have room great desserts.

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years. It is always a pleasure to dine there and the staff are so attentive and helpful. My family went there for the lobster special and it was amazing! In April we had my son's Rehearsal Dinner in the back area and we could not have been happier!

Used to live in this neighborhood 20 years ago! Went often. Am living nearby again an happy to discover it's as good as always!!!

Best real seafood in town. You can pay much more money at other fancier places but not get the basics which is well grilled good quality fish.

You cannot go wrong here. Delicious healthy seafood, served by friendly staff, and reasonable prices.

STARTED BADLY, ENDED GOOD
My friend and I went to have the whole lobster special for $32.95. The waitress informed us and the manager confirmed that the whole lobster special was good only for Monday through Thursday. We went on a Fridayl. We were disappointed but decided to get two lobster tails for two, split the two side dishes, and split dessert. It was te perfect choice. The lobster tail was huge and took up most of the platter. We split the side salad and the baked potato. The lobster tail came boiled. The other choice was broiled. We were very pleased with our meal. They split the mud pie for us in the kitchen. Coffee topped our lunch. Admittedly, this was not an inexpensive lunch ($50.00 per person!) but we willingly splurged as it was so good.

Loud and tasty
EFC has excellent food, service and decor. However, the accoustics make it hard to hear the person sitting across from you at the table. The new warrehouse style trend of high ceilings and exposed pipes has made this an epidemic. Hard to find a quality dining experience today where you can actually converse comfortably without straining, leaning forward and shouting to be heard.

Seafood at its Freshest
It is always a treat to dine at Enterprise Fish Co. We frequent both the Santa Monica and Santa Barbara locations....the food , service and ambiance is consistant and never a dissapointment.

A great restaurant for great food
Enterprise is a favorite spot when traveling to/from the W. LA area. Without question the food is terrific and service is spot on. The bar provides terrific drinks at very reasonable pricing.

Good seafood with a reasonable price...had the cioppino and was very good. The bloody mary's there are really strong and have a kick to them.

Excellent Food and Service
This was the second time I'd been to Enterprise. And, it was as consistently excellent as the first time. Service was wonderful: informative, friendly, fast, and courteous. The lobster bisque with puff pastry is superb: best of its kind in town. The halibut was perfect: moist but thoroughly cooked, and ample, with fabulous sauces. The vegetables were firm and fresh. Altogether, I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.

an off night?
When food is well prepared, and then left on the counter to cool off, it's not a pleasant dining experience. We eat here often and this will be considered as an "off night." We will try again -- but if it's the same situation, it will be crossed off our list.

Good neighborhood place for seafood
Enterprise Fish Co. has been in Santa Monica for years and is a "neighborhood gem". This is the place is you want good & fresh seafood. Foodies will probably pass on this place. It's been quite a while since we have been to this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at the updated menu. I got the Asian 5-Spiced BasaSwai entree & it was quite good. We brought our own bottle of wine & were told by our waitress that the corkage fee is $20. We went ahead a paid the corkage fee, even though we thought it was quite high considering the restaurant. $10 is a more reasonable rate for just opening a bottle of wine. Finally, I liked that you can now make reservations through Open Table or by telephone. Previously, you had to wait for a table.

I live in the desert
with a housemate allergic to all fish and shellfish. This place made me SO happy! The grilled artichoke appetizer was faboo as well.

What more can you ask fot...
Great food, excellent service by Christian, he was very attentive and friendly. Large portions and great value, and convenient parking. Can't wait to come back. Their fish and chip is excellent. I personally love the miso glazed sea bass not mild flavor but just right.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious. Server was very accomodating and answered our questions about the menu. She even brought us a dessert for my husband's birthday.

We have been coming here for 10-15 years and this restaurant has maintained it's food quality. In fact on this last visit, dinner was one of the best in memory. Service was first class, waiter was very qualified and very responsive. Hope to be coming back for many more years

Good old reliable
Been going there for over 30 years
There are not that many "Fish" restaurants
in West Los Angeles/Santa Monica
This one always provides a delicious
meal and fresh fish

Food and service were excellent
My son had the fish and chips which he said melted in his mouth. My husband's swordfish was delicious and not dry. My daughter had the fish tacos which she really enjoyed. I had the scallop risotto which was also excellent. We would give the server an A for his outstanding service and personality. And the icing on top of he cake was the MUD Pie which was given to my son as a complimentary bday cake - that was so good it got gobbled up so quickly.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM

All I CAN SAY IS THE LOBSTER BISQUE WITH THE PUFF PASTRY IS OFF THE CHAIN! IF YOU ARE INTO SEAFOOD AND CAN AFFORD TO DROP A LITTLE $ - THIS IS YOUR PLACE!!!
