Order a bottle of wine and let let the multi-course fun begin. We stared with a dozen raw oysters. Always nice to try new ones. All fresh and tasty. Next we had the most delicious ceviche we'd ever tasted, They have one on the menu and this was a special for the day. Loved it. Next - half dozen Oysters... More

I was there last week as I was craving some fresh seafood. Super happy with the service and the food itself, really tasty. Bear in mind that it is a really touristic area, hence the prices. Ask the chef for a mix platter of oysters and enjoy.

We ate brunch outside under heaters. Loved the food and loved the place. $200 for two adults and a child without desert and one glass of wine felt pricey to me, maybe that's unfair.

Blue Plate Oysterette is only a short walk from our hotel so cool no driving. The raw bar seemed like a good Idea. Here we are looking at the Pacific, we live on in Maryland and they have Oysters from the our neck of the woods, wacky. What was also odd, no FRESH Local Fish! Everything seemed to be flown... More

Call ahead for reservations! This place is small and busy, but worth the wait! Service was personal and friendly. I had the lobster mac & cheese. Huge chunks of lobster settled into tasty mac & cheese. Very delicious. My husband had the Blue Plate hamburger. Seriously the yummiest hamburger! It was thick, juicy with a char-broiled taste. The best burger... More

We opted for Oysters for appetizer and the lobster roll and were not disappointed. Service was good and atmosphere was laid back. I would like to go back when visiting Santa Monica again.

There is no parking, so also figure another $10 to park. The food and service were very good. It was listed as two dollar signs and it should be 3. No less than $100 for 2 with wine for lunch. In front of Palisades beach.

We just drop in in to the Blue Plate when we past by and look for the dinner. Lobster was the best ever I had in my life. Oysters of different quality was also after recommendations excellent. The restaurant was full when we arrive and we got a place at the bar. This was even better choice then the table.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
