Visited Fish Enterprise many times. Excellent food and drinks. Highly recommend the lobster bisque with the puff pastry top!

The restaurant is near the Amtrak Station. The seafood entrees are fresh and exceptionally well prepared. The fish and chips are very well done, with no excess breading. The calms are excellent, especially on Wednesday night at $1.00 each.

Skewer is perfect, fresh vegetables as sides very good. The temperature was a little bit cold, we have to wait 5 minutes to be seated but there was not too much people

The restaurant offers a rich offer of delicious fish dishes and wines. The staff are very nice and welcoming - and the restaurant location is perfectly situated near the Pacific ocean in State Str. We recommend highly.

We spent a few days in Santa Barbara after a 5 year hiatus and as usual walked State Street looking to dine. We were somewhat turned off by the state of State Street - lots of closed shops and a definite distressed look. Fortunately our...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.
