I've been a fan of the Bluewater Grill for a couple of years. Despite the fact that they are a (small) chain, the seafood and fish are consistently fresh. Try their cioppino, it's got verve and the serving is generous. I have yet to enjoy a great bouillabaisse in LA but looks like I need to get over to La Cachette!

    whatever you do, be sure to avoid the cioppino at C&O,

    1. Where have you tried bouillabaisse in L.A.?

        had bouillabaisse many moons ago at jiraffe and several times (much more recently) at la cachette bistro.

        whenever i go to la cachette bistro, it is always a struggle to choose between their bouillabaisse or their ahi tartar (which, imho, is the best in town)

          I meant that for the OP, but neverthless. I'd think it would be pretty good at Jiraffe.

          I've enjoyed it at Sam's too. But I think he puts conch in it - and I don't like conch. around the conch.

      2. The Original Fish Company in Los Alamitos does a nice bouillabaisse and I like their cioppino as well.

        1. I like the cioppino at Santa Monica Seafood. And the grilled sourdough that comes with it. Nice.
