Had a selection of West coast oysters. Super fresh and a wide variety to choose from. Tuna starter was also great. Would definitely go again for a great seafood experience. We sat outside.

Friendly, efficient service; had lobster roll on server's recommendation; well worth it. First time I had raw oysters; had to ask how to eat them. Delicious.

Two of us went here a few days ago and it was a real treat to have such a great meal with very friendly service. The place was buzzing and busy but it didn't reflect in the service which was excellent.

I would have preferred that my fried oysters to be cooked a little longer. Otherwise, both the food and the service were good.

We popped into the Blue Plate Oysterette to meet friends who were locals - they promised us the best ceviche in town and they weren't wrong. My kids are quite fussy eaters but there was something to please everyone on the menu. The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere fun.

Stopped for oysters and enjoyed a little seafood feast when walking along ocean avenue in Santa Monica. Everything was excellent but the scallops were one of the best i have ever had. Will definitely visit again if visiting Santa Monica.

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.
