A good restaurant for special occasions with super service and ambiance including an ocean view. However, do not go there if cost is an issue.

1 Pico at Shutters is such a gem. The view is quite lovely with Santa Monica Beach right outside. The interior is breezy and classy. The service is impeccable from the valet to the front desk reception to our lovely waiter. Perfect spot for Sunday brunch if you want some intimate quality time with friends/family.

Cecil the manager, made our night, but sadly our waiter Jonathan, was quite short tempered from the very beginning. Probably because it was the day after Valentine's Day, but it was my birthday and I felt like I was a bother. We have had Jonathan before, and he was great, but not tonight. Also, my daughter ordered the Lobster Fettuccini and it was really fishy smelling. I thought she was being picking, but then I smelled it and it really was powerful. She had an upset stomach from it when we got home. I didn't complain, but was honest with Cecil when he asked how our meal was, I told him that it was fishy smelling and he compped the dish. If it wasn't for Cecil, our night would have been a disaster. Thanks so him, we had a nice even. Always a beautiful setting, but I do miss their old bread. Now it's toasted and I actually thought it was burnt, but Jonathan told me it wasn't burnt, that was the way it came. I do hope they change their menu again so. We have been going to 1 Pico for years and years, and I do hope to continue going.

We try to get to 1 Pico whenever we are in LA for lunch. The food is great, the views of the ocean, the walkers on the promenade, and the lovely people in the hotel are very pleasant. One of the best places on the coast.

The Valentine's Day meal was better than I expected, I expected quite a bit. We had Kumamoto Oysters, Avocado Crab Grapefruit Salad, Rack of Lamb, Filet Mignon and Mashed Potatoes. We ate everything on our plates - wiped them clean. The sauces & flavor accents were wonderful. And they even have a Sangiovese by the glass which was delicious. I never write reviews but this meal was really top shelf.

The food was amazing, we especially enjoyed the roasted cauliflower and tahini sauce appetizer. We enjoyed an articulate and helpful waiter. He bought my uncle a glass of wine for his 92 birthday celebration that night. A very relaxing unhurried dining experience on Tuesday, 2/11/2020. Thank you

Went with my boyfriend to celebrate our one year! It was wonderful! Great server! Great food. We got the special and the ravioli. The ravioli was like 6 pieces for $23 which was a bit much but it taste wonderful so it was worth it. I would definitely do there again

We have been here a number of times and always enjoy it. Our only issue is that the prices have gone up a good amount since last year and it is pushing the edge.of value. The food and service remain excellent

Thanks to Dine LA this was my second visit but this time, it was dinner and what a delicious treat.

My bestie had the pork chop and I chose the lobster pasta and both were so good as well as the customer service. By the way, the bread basket was some of the best I have had, low carb diet be gone !!!!

It was a Friday evening, the weather was nice and the sunset was even better. I so enjoy this place and look forward to returning soon.

My friends and I loved this place which has the perfect setting by the ocean. It was a lovely day with a lovely view. The service was outstanding--friendly and efficient. The value was excellent as we went for DineLA Week and ordered off the DineLA lunch menu. A great bargain for three courses. We all agreed that we would like to return for another great meal with a great view.

2nd time dining at 1 Pico. Great spot & location, especially for a sunset dinner. Great menu selections, smart portion sizes and a nice wine selection to go along with the meal. Service during both occasions was outstanding.

I was pleasantly surprised. Andrea, our waiter, was fantastic. My Curried Cauliflower Soup, Grilled Branzino and Raspberry Tart were very, very good. My husband enjoyed his Salad of Bitter Lettuces with Lemon Yogurt (to start) and Steak Cobb Salad (entree) as well. We will definitely return to this charming, cozy place.

Went for a date night on Thursday. Always have enjoyed the view and food, but not then. The sea bass had an overwhelming tomato sauce that was not spicy, but masked the fish entirely. The kurobuta pork was dry with no flavor. Very disappointed!

Always consistent -- xlnt -- but disappointed that the signature caramelized popcorn dessert was
omitted from the dinela menu.

Please reinstate it to the future dinela lunch menu. It is a MAJOR TREAT!!!

From the hostess to the server everything was ‘spot on’. We truly enjoy lunching here occasionally primarily for the ambiance and delectable food choices. For whatever reason even my Manhattan seemed to taste better this time. One of my most favorite restaurants on either coast or in between! I highly recommend 1Pico to anyone wishing to enjoy an overall dining experience.

I was not impressed at all by the food. appetizersI expect little more tastier if I’m paying $28 for 3 prawns. Food was blend, over cooked and nothing special. Nice location, service was ok. Won’t be returning nor recommend to anyone.

As a regular at this restaurant, I don't understand why more people haven't discovered it. It is the perfect place for a lovely evening with good food and service minus the clamor of some places in LA.
After dinner there is usually a musician playing in the lobby making for a perfect place to have an after dinner drink.
