Nothing to write home about but it was a fun place and we were able to get a table (albeit a sharing table) easily at 8:30pm and we didnt have to share in the end so that worked out! Good selection on the menu. Decent quality. Decent pricing.

Nothing special. Food just ok. Inside a little bit like in a food court. No outside eating. Wouldn't go again.

We came here with our 2 children aged 10 and 7. My husband and I had the Mahi Mahi which was the best I have ever had. It isn't the cheapest but the service is great and the food is fabulous. It does get very busy so reserve a table in advance - it's worth it!

We both had the mixed seafood grill for lunch. The food was very good, and the service was prompt, professional, and friendly. We were afraid this would be a "tourist-y" place, but we were very happy with the quality and service at pretty reasonable prices.

A friend and I decided to troll around Santa Barbara for an afternoon. That evening we ended up at Enterprise for dinner. We had no reservation and it was Saturday night. We had about an hour wait for a table but we were able to wait in the bar area so the hour went quickly. Service in the bar was... More

Based on the size of the restaurant and it's location, we suspected it was one of those places catering to tourists that featured atmosphere and quantity rather than quality. Friends convinced us to go there for drinks and a small plates at happy hour. The food was quite tasty, and the wine and beer very reasonably priced. So we returned... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Barbara. Every time we are in town, we have dinner here. The food is incredible, but the staff is what makes Enterprise Fish so special. Best ever!

We had a reservation for a big group and had zero wait for our table. Our server was excellent and the food was fantastic! I ordered the seafood caesar salad with shrimp and lump crab. I enjoyed every bite! Everyone at the table had happy smiles. They have a nice wine selection and we totally enjoyed our dinner!

Description
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.
