If you're looking for an East Coast like seafood place, go to Blue Plate Oysterette. You can get a legitimate Lobster Roll, and very good steamers. The restaurant is located right on Ocean Ave, so you can't beat the location. And the service is really good.

Situated along Ocean Avenue (just off Pacific Coast Hwy) and facing Palisades Park, the Blue Plate Oysterette is a charming venue for casual dining. We had dinner there with friends, and the bill for the four of us was under $100. They have a wonderful selection of raw oysters and draft and bottled beers. Fresh and varied seafood is on... More

We ordered a total of 4 dishes: clam chowder, clamari, boujjibouise, and truffle lobster mac and cheese. The clam chowder was only rated 5/10. The calamari (7/10) was really good and had interesting toppings and its own special dipping sauces. The boujibouise (6/10) was a good portion and had nice flavor, but there wasnt much in it. The mac and... More

We went to the Blue Plate Oysterette for an early dinner last week due to the good TripAdvisor reviews. Unfortunately we were disappointed by the end. The positives of this restaurant are the very good location and the dessert (the lime tart), which actually was very tasty. The staff was friendly too, although a little forgetful (we had to ask...

The Blue Plate Oysterette serves a wide range of fresh seafood. We particularly like their salmon, calamari, crab cakes, lobster salad and coleslaw. They do have more exotic entrees. It''s small and popular with a full spectrum of patrons: young singles, older adults and families with children. We prefer to avoid peak lunch or dinner times, when it can be... More

Small, older restaurant with outdoor seating with a view of the Pacific Ocean. The Lobster Roll was not overly-dressed and very fresh. New England clam chowder was very tasty as well. Large selection of fresh oysters on the half shell to choose from. If you are unsure, staff is educated and will make suggestions to suit your needs. For a... More

Blue Plate Oysterette is rad. Super fresh seafood is a neat simple setting. Check out the daily specials board for the catch of the day. Totally get oysters here. Everything is good. The service is awesome. If you want to have a nice seafood dinner after a day near the sea, this is the place. Pro tip: Its a smaller... More

Very well situated on the Ocean ave. Try the seafood plate. Fresh seafood and the prices are good. The atmosphere in room and outdoors are both cosy.

Not only has the service deteriorated, the food was just so so. My sister an I were sandwiched in next to a family with two of most ill mannered children I had seen in a long time. Our server Ben acted as though he really did not want to be bothered. We waited I know over 30 minutes for some... More

My husband, two small children, and I had a wonderful evening at the BP Oysterette this week. We sat outside, and the ambiance was very cozy. The food was excellent - and the wine was just as good. Lobster roll was fantastic!! The evening was made very special by the floor manager, Marie-Pierre, who went out of her way to... More
