Nice find for sitting across from the Pacific Ocean and having fine seafood options in a casual café. The food was delicious, great menu with many selections, hot , cold, salad , sandwich or entrée. Of course fresh seafood was abundant. Service was very good. We found many creative dishes and so something for everyone. I would definitely visit again.

For great seafood with a great view, BP Oysterette is a great choice. I had perfectly cooked salmon, fresh oysters, and an excellent house salad (in order of memorableness) and everyone else was pleased with their food. But be forewarned, this excellent meal comes at a price! $$$

Incredible seafood. Phenomenal ambiance. No pretense. We loved the dinner together. The wait staff could not have been more attentive, and the food was first class. Great place!

Thankfully I was on an expense account, but the food was very fresh and the recommendations were spot on. Enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly staff. Ate there twice in the week as I saw food items I had to try.

We are from Canada, visiting in Santa Monica for the first time , we were staying at Loews Hotel down the street, and noticed this seafood restaurant. We decided to check reviews on-line prior to making a reservation, and noticed that it had received very good reviews, so we checked it out. We were not disappointed! In fact, it was... More

We had dinner here last night and sat outside watching the last of the sunset as we sipped wine. We were all very happy with our meals: lobster roll, ahi sandwich, pesto shrimp, and linguini with clams. Portion sizes were generous without being silly. Each of us finished our meal with the exception of a few crispy Old Bay spiced... More

The grilled octopus with fresh pesto on a bed of arugula was very tasty. The octopus was perfectly cooked and the greens were very fresh. Craft beers are on tap and a good variety of beers are offered. The service is friendly and prompt. The customers seemed to be locals fro the most part and they all enjoyed themselves. There...

The fish tacos taste wonderful. Individuals with me enjoyed their food too. Appetizers were disappointing. And the portion sizes compared to prices are also disappointing. The staff is very nice, friendly and do a good job. But if the only reason to return is the staff then that missed the point.

The service at this restaurant is excellent. We went here on a recommendation of a friend and advice from the conceirge at our hotel. We found the oysters and the food in general average. It definitely wasn't bad and maybe we had very high expectations but we found the food average in flavour. It could be a difference in how... More
