No better dining with a view in LA. Just a superb atmosphere. Food and service great. Try the Crunchy Squash appetizer. You will want more for sure. Pricey, so I wouldn't go every day, but for a special time, it can't be beat.

The server was completely rude to us. Never got our dinner. We got our apps then an hour later we asked where our dinners were and he said we never asked for him to bring it??? Ummmm we didn’t ask you to bring our apps…u just brought them as that’s what’s supposed to happen. Then he put our food in a bag and our wine in to go cups and gave us oir $400 bill. We didn’t even get our dessert! He had an attitude and was sooooo rude

My girlfriend was ecstatic about the ambiance of this restaurant for our anniversary. Staff was friendly and the vibes were immaculate. Our portions were very filling, and we got to walk off our food at the pier since it was so close. Would recommend to check it out. :)

Dined at One Pico during our first Shutters trip since fall of 2019. My girlfriends and I have been coming to Shutters for a long weekend since 2011 and one of the things we look forward to is dining at One Pico. Staff is terrific, food is good and ambiance is great.

Food here is so good and innovative. My salad of beets, citrus slices, arugula and burrata cheese was just perfect: the salad dressing was very light but so tasty.
My friend had chicken and waffles and it looked greasy to me but she loved the combination. We will return in one month and I am already looking forward to it.

The more I thought about it, the more I think my experience was not a good one. The outdoor dining is in the former driveway for the valet and we decided we wanted a view of the ocean. The hostess seemed perturbed we wanted to sit by the window even though the restaurant had low occupancy. The food was good, but not exceptional despite the fact the prices were quite high. My $40+ grouper was sautéed with some pea shoots sprinkled on top and had no accompaniment. For two people, splitting an appetizer and a dessert with one cocktail for each of us, the bill with a 20% tip (I was generous in light of the situation) was close to $250. I believe in value – not cheapness, but value for what is received. I know that the pandemic has changed things and it will take a while to rebound, but the value proposition is currently way out of balance at 1 Pico. Finally, our waiter wasn't very diligent with the way he was wearing his mask. Half the time he came to the table his mask wasn't covering his nose.

We had dinner here for our anniversary and had a fabulous table by open doors overlooking the beach and the Santa Monica Pier. The sunset was spectacular and after dinner there was a weekly bicycle light parade that was amazing. We will definitely go again. The dining room by the open doors felt very safe. Also not at all crowded before sunset.

The pictures on their site show the dinning room with a stunning beach view however this room is not open for brunch so you are seated in the front courtyard with no beach view in close quarters. It felt very misleading. They were able to seat us inside by the bar which has windows looking out on the beach but it was just not was is sold on the website.

Had requested table beach facing cause I was going to propose to my gf, nothing was planned when we got there. Changed tables when someone left. The food was mediocre and the service just as much (forgetting to ask how we want the steak, etc). Oysters had no juice and shell pieces were inside. The steak was over cooked and the price was higher on the bill. Etc.

The Beyond Burger was delicious (as were the the accompanying fries!) My friend had the Wagyu Burger which she thoroughly enjoyed (as well as the accompanying fries!) It's quite impressive the ambience that is created by transforming the front parking/valet area into a tranquil outdoor setting for weekend brunches here at 1 Pico.
