second visit to this eatery. Excellent all around. Looking forward to stopping in again when passing through or for overnight stay.
Food is great, cool atmosphere and kid friendly.
Good provisions for people on gluten free diets.
Food exceeded our expectations! Ordered the seafood skewers blackened. Amazingly fresh fish, grilled to perfection! Placed on Delicious corn relish! Loved watching the kitchen work their magic! Excellent service!
$1 oyster Wednesday, fabulous cocktails, excellent entrees. Glad I made a Rez with Open Table - no wait and a window table over looking State St. One of our favorite Santa Barbara restaurants. over the last 20 years it has remained a staple for us and never fails to deliver a wonderful dining experience.
Casual nautical restaurant in great location. Salmon was delicious.
This restaurant is excellent. The food is always fresh and arrives quickly after ordering. The employees are all friendly and professional. Highly recommend this favorite of ours that we have been going to since they opened.
Excellent service Matt was on top of his game. We had a reservation and seated us right away.
I have been going to this restaurant every time I visited Santa Barbara (once or twice a year) for the past twenty years; but this is the first time I wasn't crazy about it. Maybe it wasn't them; maybe it was I who was in a bad mood or something.
The food was excellent for our four person group. Service was very, very good.
Awesome food, atmosphere, and service. Just what we came for!
The food was great, as always. Our waitperson was especially attentive despite having a very large party to serve.
The service was fine, but the actual servings were rather thin and the
fish was not that well handled/cooked. Simply not a value for the price.
The sea bass was excellent.
Restaurant is very loud and very much like a factory. Not much attention to presentation or to food. Very very average.
We were told this was a great place for good fish. It seems they live using mesquite in preparing all their fish. The swordfish was overpowered by the mesquite. And the fish was in a pool of oil. I probably won’t go back. And the cheeses potatoe side was gummy. I really wanted to like this place. Our server was great.
food is always good at the location...we eat there alot and never seem to have a bad meal.
great meal at Fish Enterprise. Jordan, our waiter, was very attentive and had good recommendations
Food was oversauced and way over cooked. At that price point, which is not crazy expensive but for the same price point in another restaurant you will get much higher quality. I would not return.
excellent seafood selection. food was prepared to out specifications. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly at 7:30 even though there were other people waiting to be seated. We asked the waitress for her preference when we gave her a choice between a couple meal options and were not disappointed with her suggestions.
Waiter was absent and absent minded. Two items were brought to the table in error, but corrected. Otherwise we had to hunt down the waiter to get service.
Tried hard but was lacking. Fish over cooked. Another example of Santa Barbara lacking restaurant s
Somewhat disappointing. Went for our anniversary. Nothing mentioned. Only fair overall.
Great time, great food, exceptional service. Paid 10/11 bucks for grilled artichoke with a couple of bites of choke, out of season? It tasted good but tiny and not worth it. Rest of meal was perfect!
Very good food, ok service, way to loud.
Food was excellent and our server was awesome!
Fun place, yummy food, service was great. Definitely lively and comfortable.
Food was amazingly good. Cocktails even more so. Service, not so much. We didn't see our waiter once after he dropped off the food, and it took some time to find him to get our check.
Although we had a reservation, the computers weren't working. However, the hostess honored our reservation and took us right to our table. The food was delicious--especially the fish.
Great food and friendly staff! We had reservations but arrived early and they sat us right away. Great experience!
Best experience with my 10 month old. Service around every corner and fresh food at your table.
Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful food. Wonderful service.
Great for date night, great for meeting friends. Great meals for children.
Totally recommend this restaurant.
One of, if not the best restaurant in Santa Barbara.
Fantastic! Thank you!
I was underwhelmed with the quality of the food particularly as the restaurant was very busy - typically a good sign. I had seared Ahi which was a very unusual cut - quite thin and moderate gristle. Typically Ahi is a deep red color in the uncooked part, mine was brownish. The taste was ok but not great. The other entree was Dover Sole. Again, ok but nothing to write home about.
Not a bad experience, just not a place I would go back to. I tend to be pretty easy to please so it is a little unusual for me to write this type of review. Perhaps they just had an off night.
I asked what fish is in the seafood skewers and our server said mahi mahi but salmon is what was delivered... I don’t eat salmon so I was really disappointed... I could have easily ordered something had I known... disappointed!
I set reservations for our 12 year anniversary for 9:15pm with confirmation number on my phone showed up at the time and I was greeted immediately by were closed !! I told them I'm sorry I have reservations right here on my phone confirming I had dinner reservations , again well what time did you make them at? again well what time did you make them at! I'm sorry I made reservations at this restaurant not to be treated in this kind of manner! We were told that we could close early by our manager and won't be serving dinner pass this time I was told
and was handed a few free appitizer cards and out the door we went!
Not kind at all to do to anyone!
Jeff was a pleasure, he made our visit! I don’t eat seafood but Enterprise has many other great options. Thank you!
Went here for a casual seafood dinner. We ordered a special of scallops risotto and swordfish. Scallops were tasteless and risotto was a pile of rice covered in “Parmesan”. Swordfish was fine, but lacked anything memorable.
Received a side salad - excellent (you can judge the quality of the rest of the food when the best dish is a side salad!) and clam chowder (think glue used for papier-mâché.....!).
As for service, it was friendly but inept. Despite our request the papier-mâché soup was received after main course, and only received water at th third time of asking.
Judge for yourself based on the above, but I am amazed this is one of the top restaurants in SB on trippy. Avoid if you have taste buds.
WELL RUN WITH VERY EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE. ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO GOING THERE WHEN IN SANTA BARBARA. BEAUTIFUL LARGE EXOTIC AQUARIUM TO ADMIRE WHILE DINING.
