Blue Plate Oysterette

Seafood
Blue Plate Oysterette was inspired by East Hampton summer lobster bakes and mouthwatering lunches at Montauk’s favorite roadside eateries. With influences like Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary’s Fish Camp in New York, Oysterette serves lunch and dinner seven days a week with a menu straight out of the seafood shacks you find on the East Coast. Chunky, overflowing lobster rolls, buckets of steamed clams in broth so flavorful that bread demands to be dunked, clam chowder, mussels in broth, ceviche, and raw shellfish so fresh you can smell the ocean. Filling the void in the Westside restaurant scene for a casual, beachy, seafood restaurant and buzzing neighborhood vibe appealing to both surfers and studio heads.

    Good food (though, not surprisingly, absurd prices - $22 for 4 shrimp), exceedingly long wait time for both rounds of drinks (nearly 20 mins).

    My sister and I have eaten here twice before, and this experience was as exceptional as the previous visits. Food...so good! Service, attentive and accurate...all of this in Santa Monica on Ocean Blvd. right across from the Pacific Ocean! We like going on the weekdays as traffic is less intense, and reservations easy to secure, but if you are up for the adventure book a reservation on the weekend and enjoy! What a find!

    We walked in first without a reservation and were told the wait is 45 minutes. We didn't wait, but I opened the OpenTable app and saw availability in 15 minutes. So we made the reservation on OpenTable and then walked in and got the table!! Amazing!!!! The Food is really good and the service is relaxed but friendly. We will be back!

    Food was fine but portions were modest for the price. Service was good but not much value here. A bit disappointing. Playa Provisions is a better choice if you want seafood.

    It had been 5 years since we had been to Blue Plate Oysterette and we came away wondering what had taken us so long to return. It was wonderful. We shared a plate of east coast oysters, prawns that positively popped when you bit them, and delicious raw Peruvian Scallops. The watermelon mignonette with the oysters added a brightness to their lovely mild flavor. We also shared a plate of 3 fish tacos (Baja style) which were excellent. We had a couple of glasses of a delicious Sauvignon Blanc which was the perfect compliment to our meal. Our server, Betty, was an absolute delight with great suggestions and a deep well of patience. We most certainly be returning very soon. No more 5 year hiatus.

    I always love going to the Oysterette. The food never disappoints and the service is always with a smile. The reason I said the noise level was at the highest was because of the great band that was playing. Not a place to go to have a quiet conversation obviously but that's not why we went. It was really fun :)))

    I was meeting an out-of-town friend in Santa Monica for dinner. Blue Plate Oysterette was the perfect choice! All 3 of us loved our food and drinks! The Farmer's Market berry margarita was so refreshing. The crab claws were great. The grilled shrimp with rice and salad was yummy! Plus the server was knowledgeable and attentive. All that AND an ocean view from the patio! You just can't beat that! I'd highly recommend Blue Plate Oysterette and will be going back soon.

    I appreciated our server’s help with which oysters to chose, and the Dj playing 80’s music out of a Volkswagen bus made it feel like we were at a pool party. All around great time had at Blue Plate! Will return soon.

    Blue Plate is consistently good - both food and service. And they are doggy friendly which is a bonus. The music adds energy as well as helping you forget that you are actually eating on the street. The wait staff always is up for recommendations.

    The food was pretty good, maybe not worth the price though. Great location, cute place, but there were little bugs flying around that we constantly had to swipe away, and it was very humid inside.

    They do not have parking!!! Adjacent parking for another place is $17. Fresh oysters were delicious, broiled oysters, not so good. Sashimi was served at room temperture, should have a little chill to maintain freshness, and it was served on a small plate not presented as food you should be proud to present to a customer. Scallops were excellent, a must try for everyone. Artichoke was good, the sause with it tasted like mayo from the jar, not acceptable. Mussels in a curry broth were very tasty. Service was good except waitress could see we were sharing dishes so why would she give us 1 fork and 1 spoon with the curry broth. She did have a tough job, so I excuse it. Very busy on a Thursday nite but food came out fast and spaced as requested.
