Built in 1917, the historic building now home to our Santa Monica restaurant was once a transfer station for the narrow-gauge Red Car line, Los Angeles' first mass transit system. It was later the repair house for the world-famous Pacific Ocean Park, home to the oldest wooden roller coaster west of the Mississippi. These days, we're still a stone's throw from Venice Beach, heart of where L.A. goes to play -- and eat. Also just a few blocks from the waterfront, our sister restaurant in Santa Barbara operates in a century-old brick building originally home to an industrial linen service for seaside hotels. While the Douglas fir floors, soaring ceilings, and glassed cupola have always been features of this historic structure, the sweeping arches facing State Street were added after much of the building crumbled during the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake.

This used to be a go to place for us but the quality has gone way downhill - in fact, the last couple of times we have been there, it has not been very good. We are scratching it off our list.

Best freshest seafood that you are going to find. prepared beautifully.Great waiter,friendly from hostess to waiter. outrageously delicious seafood,great service, nice atmosphere. You couldn’t find a better seafood restaurant,reasonably priced. Lobster s are better than the palm restaurants and much cheaper. You want the freshest seafood in town ,look no further, it’s right here @ Enterprise.

We always enjoy this restaurant but were disappointed this time because we came for lobster and were told they sold out at lunchtime. Tables all around us were complaining about the same thing, some who had come for special occasions were especially disappointed m. Next time we will call first to be sure we can get lobster.

For happy hour specials you need to sit at the bar or outside. Dining inside is a different menu and setting.

The food was good with the exception of my husband's crab grilled cheese. The calamari were soft not rubbery, my branzino was pretty nicely spiced.

I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the Enterprise Fish Company as I sat down to celebrate my birthday in this exquisite restaurant of seafood! I chose the mahi-mahi fish with sweet potatoes fries and a lobster bisque with puff pastry. The mahi-mahi fish was very tender and moist while being quite tasty in the mouth. The lobster bisque was very delicious and creamy with chunks of lobster in the bisque itself. The puff pastry was krispy on the outside and tender on the inside of it. Delicious. For dessert, I had the Enterprise Fish Company’s very own chocolate mud pie with whipped cream and a cherry. My server was impeccable. Katerina could read my body language and know what I needed without me having to verbally ask fo it. Katerina did such a spectacular job while I was enjoying my birthday celebration lunch at the Enterprise Fish Company, I ended up tipping her at 45% of my entire bill. I highly recommend everyone going to the Enterprise Fish Company!

I’ve been eating at Fish Enterprise since it opened in 1979. Lots of good times, good memories and good food! Right now my favorite is their excellent cioppino.
A bunch of years ago , I was at UCLA Hospital Pharmacy waiting to pick up meds. Some out-of-town people asked if I knew of a good seafood restaurant on the water. This threw me for a moment, because Los Angeles is sadly lacking in that category, but recommended Fish Enterprise and apologized for the lack of view. I knew that food would not disappoint.

went on a Groupon: After a bumpy start- wound up with a good dinner, and surprise - Monday night 'special' dinner deal.
Fantastic server, Brian, really took care of us. Anything we needed he was right there.
More napkins, water, lemon, butter, extra tarter. And always with a smile.
Thanks Brian!!
