We were staying at the Westin close to LAX and were looking for a reasonably priced seafood restaurant nearby. We decided on this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. We didn't have a reservation, but our party of six was seated immediately around 5:30pmish on a Wednesday. We loved the location because it was a 5 minute walk to the water... More

I really don't get the high grades for this spot, but honestly, we we're totally disappointed with our recent experience. As a serious foodie, a lot of these reviews strike me as plants or friends of the owners. At any rate, all of our meals left a lot to be desired. We started with their "famous" New England Clam Chowder... More

We rode our bikes from Santa Monica and stopped here to dine. The salmon bites, chipotle shrimp quesadilla and the ahi tuna poke are strongly recommended. Wash that down with a great glass of Sancerre. The waitress was outstanding (Liane).

Food was great. Quick service and seating. Very fresh seafood and great specials. Only negative was tables are close and our neighboring table was loud.

Understand this was the surf punk bar of choice back in the day and they've recently remodeled (again) but haven't been back to see. A few months back did go for second time; ambience (high energy, SoCal casual) was selling point for me. Both my hubby & I disappointed in our entrees. Parking is not easy unless come in off...

Shrimp cocktail was very good and fish tacos too. Their sticky bun sundae is probably one of the best I've had, so, nicely done. Service is a little slow, especially if the place is crowded.

We were recommended to Fishbar by our hotel - turned out to be a really good recommendation. Very busy / buzzy bar - it was a Wednesday night and the place was packed. We both had fish - salmon and mahi mahi which were great but menu was varied and plenty of options. Good wine list and good value.

Great lunch! My husband had the shrimp ceviche, which he found to be fresh and delicious and I had a 1/2 pound of King Crab legs for $11.99 each. The crab legs were fabulous for the price and served with the appropriate crab retrieving tools. We both had the soup and salad lunch special which includes a bowl of clam... More
