Not sure if it was because the venue was busy but we were not impressed at all with the food. There was only a limited three course mother's day menu to choose from. I'm not sure if this is standard or just for Mother's day. My son had the steak which was not bad - a little overcooked but flavorful.... More

I 've been to 1 Pico a number of times and the room is spectacular with it's ocean view. The service is excellent and the food looks wonderful. My friend loved her halibut but I found my short ribs tasteless. For $34 I would expect delicious. The desert was very good and we had a nice evening.

Good atmosphere, seaside decor and the ocean just across! The menu offers fish, meat and pasta and vegs. The service is good and plates tasted delicious, prices not really friendly;)

The restaurant was basically almost empty at brunchtime. There were a few tables, maybe 3-4, but the rest of the space was sadly devoid of patronage. Brunch menu was limited to egg dishes and there were also several lobster offerings, but none interesting enough: lobster blt or pasta. The food we ordered was ok. It was not particularly tasty, just... More

Delicious food. Had the fish special and it was perfection. The ceasar salad was tasty too. All of this with a view of the ocean on the beach. My server was terrific too.

The prices looked high at first until you got the food. The portions were generous and the favors and tastes were excellent. I had a fritta with mushrooms and she had the catch of the day which was grilled to perfection. We split a lobster and crab cake appetizer. We finished with a custard and sorbet desert and special Tea.

The restaurant and attached hotel are beautiful. The waitstaff was polite and helpful. The meals are a la carte and a bit pricey - but you get what you pay for...I had a calimari appetizer, ribeye steak and side of asparagus. All were done perfectly. The beer and wine list are extensive. The menu is manageable - they have a... More

The setting for this restaurant is great... lovely view of the beach. Service was good and wine list is terrific. The food however was a major disappointment. My husband's steak was very overlooked, and the pasta with lobster was completely uninspired. We loved our stay at this hotel, and hope to return. But, we will skip this restaurant.

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.
