This place is wonderful--great for the whole family. We sat outside and enjoyed the ocean and sunset. They had a good kids menu, great fresh seafood and my husband even got his fresh oysters. Great place.

I love everything about this place. Oysters were perfect. While that's all I ordered everyone in my group loved their food. The decor is simple but stylish giving the place old beach charm feel with seagrass barstools, hex tile floor, hicks pendants and great old...More

I don't think there's another informal restaurant with sensational seafood with an ocean view, in the sweet spot of Santa Monica. Everything close by has people showing up (and showing each other up) in BMWs and Bentleys. Here you just show up. Professional, hospitable staff,...More

I had already had oysters just across the street so couldn't do this place justice, but what I managed of the Crab/Shrimp Louie salad was great. Really nice service, and the view across Ocean to the water was lovely.

I stumbled upon this place while walking along the oceans edge and found it perfect for eating alone while in town for business. As an east coaster I was a bit skeptical--I'm always hesitant about places that site fresh fish on their menu...and it's from...More

Stopped in for a quick bite at the bar. Oysters were delicious! Enjoyed with a glass of wine. Nice atmosphere. Great location on Ocean. Staff was friendly and unobtrusive. Felt comfortable solo on a Tuesday night. Will definitely return on another trip.

From reading the menu, this restaurant promised so much, so we booked a table. When we arrived we had to wait to be seated, even though we had booked, and then were given a seat/table outside, which looked promising, but turned out to be a...More

Good location, ok atmosphere. The food is good, maybe a little interior makeover will help to upscale the visitors experience.

Great ambiance, a great location. It was difficult getting reservations, but if you can sit at the bar - not wait. The food was excellent and the wait staff was great. Will definitely return

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

If you go to the Blueplate web site, they have a "parking" URL that will give a lot of local info in detail. Or use google earth and you can see all the parking lots that are around the place. Looks like a parking lot... More
