I love Shutters on the Beach. In fact if I did not have wonderful friends to stay with in LA I would stay here, it is the perfect hotel for visitors to LA who do not know anyone there and who do not want to drive, as Shutters is located on the beach in Santa Monica and within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and bars of Santa Monica and Venice. The hotel manages to combine the glamour of LA with echoes of a rustic cottage vibe and the sun deck is gorgeous. One Pico is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the beach. I had the set brunch on Easter Sunday and whilst it was not cheap, the food was excellent and in my opinion worth the price a wonderfully memorable brunch - we even saw dolphins! It was idyllic! It is the perfect spot for families, couples or friends and I can't wait to go back soon - and to stay in the hotel!

A little of a wait - had pre-booked and the drinks in the lobby are very expensive. Saying that the food was great the service awesome and the choice of wines really great. To be honest eating at One Pico is cheaper than having a cocktail in the lounge?

Awesome bistro fare and a great atmosphere. Great place to getaway from the crazy of Santa Monica. Steak frites was fantastic.

Myself and friends stopped at Shutter for something to eat and a couple of drinks after seeing it while walking along the ocean front walk.

It can take a little time to get seated as this place gets very busy however it is worth the wait.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the views of the beach front were excellent.

Most of had the fish and chips which were pretty good, portion size for the fish could be a little bigger but otherwise it was very good.

You must try the deserts though as these were excellent and worth saving a little room for.

Great, amazing and also accommodating! I'm on the carb free diet and the chef couldn't have been more helpful in replacing my fries with his wonderful version of broccolito. Excellent waiter service, and the sommelier was also very knowledgable, although my dinner partner chose the most marvellous red wine, which they decanted no question. Great evening and no hesitation in recommending for couples, families special occasions and dinner with friends.
