The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version: 
Winner.
Love this place for the appetizers! Always consistent and always delicious!The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

I’ve been coming to Fish Company (that’s what I call it, who has time for such a long name) since before I could talk. Honestly, this has been the go to spot for years. Back when they had all-you-can-eat crab Tuesdays and before they ditched their blender (I’m still very angry about that because they served the best pina coladas) I was here. More often than not my family and I drop in for beer, appetizers and a good time. I love that this place is consistent and the wait is never too crazy. I’m going to just come out and say that if you do anything besides family style I truly don’t know what you’re doing. Being Persian and Mexican, the only way we know how to eat is family style and even if you order your own dish expect at least 4 other forks to be eating from that plate as well. I love eating this way and if you haven’t tried it you’re really missing out. My crazy family aside, family style is the way to go here because their appetizers are the real star and it’s perfectly okay to get full off of them, so order a lot and share!

As you can see there’s always a lot of food and some beer too. This time we happened to arrive for happy hour, which is actually really good here. A significant portion of their appetizers are on their happy hour menu as well as exclusive happy hour items. By the way, don’t pass up the bread and butter, the butter is amazing, this is a restaurant where it’s worth the extra calories.

I love these! The shishito peppers are served with a lemon-soy vinaigrette with bonito flakes. I love them because they are different than the usual salted shishito peppers and they are a great start to your meal.

Their spicy calamari is hands down one of my favorite! How could you go wrong with roasted jalapeños and crispy calamari?!? Forget the sauce, a little lemon is all these bad boys need.

This was a new one for me, they sounded good and I can’t say no to a good pot sticker. I have to be honest, it took me about 2 of these before I decided I liked them. The sauce really made a difference and by the end my pot stickers were bathing in it.

There isn’t much to say about oysters… you either love them or you hate them and I happen to be obsessed. They are amazing, tasty, fresh and all you need is a little Tapatio sauce and a squeeze of lemon. Oh, and at $1.50 a pop feel free to order 50 – it might even help you later on (<– remember it’s an aphrodisiac haha).

I love the mussels; when you have one they may not change your life, but take them out of the shell, put them in the sauce and add pieces of bread and a few drops of lemon and you’ll literally be in heaven (don’t you get excited when things accidentally rhyme)!

Fish Company, Enterprise Fish Co, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, seafood, eat and escape, restaurant reviews, risotto, scallops

This is my mom’s go-to and for good reason. This dish is definitely among their best! The risotto has so much flavor, the scallops are pillow-y and the arugula adds a light, fresh taste. The balance of flavors is great and the result is a delicious dish that is very filling.

I love crab legs and Fish Co. never disappoints. I have nothing but good things to say about this dish.

The fish and chips are battered to perfection, crispy and served with some very tasty sweet potato fries.

Dessert was great, the molten cake is rich and very tasty and the crisp is equally as tasty, but much easier to share. You always have to end your meal on a sweet note and these are two great options.
