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.
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.
Awesome. Best fish and chips.
The food was great. The wait staff was friendly and timely.
The waiter was very attentive. He brought samples of the chardonnay options.
The restaurant was a bit loud, but the food was outstanding.
It was great!
Service was excellent . We had a party of 6 and they had something for everyone.
We had Lobster, Ciopianno, clams , kids meals, clam chowder. Everyone was happy !!
Amazing seafood! Great service!
Recommended to us as “best seafood in SB”, but we found it mediocre — not bad, food was acceptable, but nothing special. Chowder was dense, not with clams but with flour. Oysters OK. One fish dish over-cooked. Not the worst, but generally unremarkable. High local ratings a mystery to us.
Good as always but very busy and noisy on a Sat nite. Still our SB fave, we’ll be back
Usually LOVE this place. This night, it was meh. The food was sub par and then they brought my soup at the END of the meal. That really was out of sync. And the soup was awful, too.
We always wonder how the Enterprise can find such warm and friendly wait staff!
