Beautiful venue for a Sunday brunch--even on a gloomy and cloudy day. Food was delicious and
served very hot. Very attentive service. All in all a perfect place to celebrate an early holiday
get-together w/ friends from Newport. We all enjoyed the beautiful setting, the delicious food
and the good service. Will def go back again and again.

The hostess was welcoming, friendly and courteous.
Our waiter was attentive without being a nuisance. He was helpful with the meal selection based on our questions.
The food was great.
The seating was very nice. We were fortunate to get a window table.

Did not honor reservation. We were offered our table 2 hours and 15 minutes late. No apology from the restaurant management. Lots of other angry guests (due to same issue) meant a tense and unpleasant experience. Food was average to below average.

We usually have such a great time at Thanksgiving, but there were so many "misses" this year, we're unsure that we'll return next year. Our table wasn't't available at our reserved time for over an hour, and were told by the hostess that "it would be okay if we just left"....what? The manager, who was super nice, tried his best, but when dessert came around, there were no nut-free options...again, what?? (we have an allergy, and were unprepared to have no option available for a fixed-price dinner). Just so disappointing on what is usually such a great tradition for our family.

Always love this place. Fabulous views and ambience. We were placed in a crowded corner, and
would have preferred not being so squished in...but, we did love the view from our table. All in
all would def recommend for a special LA vista and meal.

Lobster BLT was amazing! The wine list was worth the stop alone. Great by the glass selections that are not typically available. Service was spot on anticipating everything we needed along the way including a beautiful split of the lobster BLT for me and my hubby to share.

How do you improve a place like this? You're sitting down staring at Santa Monica beach, incredible, tight service. Delicious yet simple menu. I had the best spaghetti carbonara i ever had. The extremely professional waiter explained to me very tactfully how should i manouver the central egg display. To finish, they have an outstanding selection of ports and aperitifs. I'll never forget this meal.

Arrived early. Listened to the very nice jazz piano/Vocalist duo while waiting. Friends joined about 15 minutes later. Got an amazing table right by the beach deck door as the sun was setting over the ocean. Ordered some drinks. Nice conversation for about 30 minutes. Got notified of our table awaiting. Seated. Great food, served beautifully and quickly. A little wine, more conversation, some business. A grand evening.

We had a wonderful evening here celebrating our anniversary. It's a beautiful room with lovely views of Santa Monica Pier. The service was wonderful - we had a lovely Italian waiter - and the food was spectacular. I liked the fact that we weren't rushed through each course. We would not hesitate to eat here again.

1 Pico was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The sunset views were spectacular. The service was spot on. The atmosphere was California nautical and nice. And the food was very good. I had the Hamachi Crudo (excellent) and the Pork Chop which also was excellent. I highly recommend this place.

What an beautiful experience! This restaurant is set on the beach separated by the boardwalk. Every seat has a view of the ocean and the best seats are window. The Branzino fish, salmon, pasta, and salads were amazing. Service was fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect for making memories with friends, family or a daytime date at the beach. Enjoy!
