Great seafood nice ambiance

We were staying nearby & met up with friends here for dinner. It's a cozy place bustling with people. Reminded me more of a bistro in Côte d'Azur than anything else. We had steamed mussel, oyster in the half shell, calamari, fish & chips, and lobster mac & cheese. All were excellent. It was... read more

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

Neighborhood 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.
