Nice comfortable setting with grill and kitchen in the glass walled center of the restaurant. Very friendly, creative fish dishes and a happy hour though one had to sit in the bar to receive happy hour pricing.

Though not in a scenic spot, near the rail station on the State Street main drag the atmosphere was good and the service friendly. The seafood was very good, a little seasoning short of great. The roasted artichoke was delicious, but messy to eat. Cerviche...More

We ordered the salmon, ginger halibut, parmesan halibut, swordfish and crab melt. The fish were cooked appropriately and were not over done. The ginger halibut had a nice combination of flavors among the fish, rice, bok choy and carrots. The salads were nothing special but...More

We had Enterprise Fish as second option for lunch, since our prime target was full. But it was really good food and pleasant service. Fish in Enterprice is a delicious experience. Highly recommendable place for eating.

I have been to this restaurant in early 1980s and last time in 2003 when I traveled up the coast. I remembered it as a much better restaruant. You can get better seafood at Denny's. The salmon was pretty tasteless and over-cooked. The bread was...More

I have no idea, but the food is middling to bland, very boring, the service is not good. I will never go back there anyway! (and if what you say is true, that is despicable!)

Just a few blocks from the waterfront, our 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. 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.
