    Overpriced for the quantity of food served. Looks like they cut the portion in half but kept the same prices. $40 for lobster sandwich? $38 for a baby branzino or branzino cut in half with little bit of salad and 4 tomatoes. I’m surprised in was not packed for Father’s Day. The view is nice, but it’s overpriced.

    Nice place. Good ocean side vibe. The short rib pasta was like shredded pot roast over a heavy tomato pasta. My wife had the salmon which was great. We tried the brownie fudge for desert. Here’s the weird part; there’s no freaking brownie. Sent it back. Got the warm chocolate cake which was great. New manager Sean is a great guy and bought our deserts for us and a glass of champagne for our anniversary.

    May 27, 2022 1 Pico had been our very favorite restaurant. We were loyal patrons during Covid, previously introducing people during Dine LA and hosting guests with high standards over the years. This evening our food was mediocre at best. The Hamachi Crudo was not prepared with the Jalapeño on top, the fish sliced and fishy tasting and served plain with a salty sauce. Used to be a favorite. The branzino was to be a whole fish which was not and served butterfly with a thin meat and with skin and odd herb seasoning. It did not compare favorably to the whole branzino at fine restaurants. The halibut was unremarkable. The salmon satisfactory. What a disappointment for a meal that just was off and not up to par in taste, presentation nor preparation for a $300+ dinner. We stopped at the piano bar and self served champagne for another $100 at $30 a small glass. The final insult was a $25 valet charge.

    The staff and service at One Pico were very attentive, friendly, efficient and professional. Dino the new GM introduced himself and checked with us to ensure we were happy and enjoying our meal. The delicious food was well prepared. Filet cooked to perfection all the way through. We’d go back in a heartbeat for the grilled blue prawns starter. Spent 3 hours talking and never felt rushed to leave. One Pico is one of the best restaurants in Santa Monica and definitely ought to be on your list to dine there at least once. You’ll love this truly enjoyable experience.

    It's unfortunate to have be dining right next to guests arriving from the valet service. We had numerous guests dragging their suitcases and paying for their valet tickets. Really took away from what used to be a more elegant hotel.

    We waited 30 minutes for our table. So much for a reservation. Service was slow and my salad wasn't that great. I was disappointed. While the decor is lovely, it's weird that we are basically where cars used to pull up to drop off guests.

    I had taken my mother and 6 year old niece to 1 Pico for a Mother’s Day celebration. I had previously been to 1 Pico on numerous occasions with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and excellent service. The same could be said on this Mother’s Day. I only wish that we were situated closer to a window with an ocean view as I had made the reservations in advance two weeks prior. I was pleased that they had a kids’ menu and provided crayons and coloring page for my niece to draw with. That kept her occupied. My mother and I shared an omelette, pasta, and salad while my niece had a burger. All were pretty satisfactory, but pretty bland. My mother felt the child’s burger was high quality beef which was good. The server was highly attentive and kind as were all the waitstaff. The server and the chef even generously provided us with a salad on the house. I think 1 Pico is a wonderful place to meet friends and family, but my only recommendation would be to have a more interesting and varied while also tasty menu. The menu items do not look very changed from pre-pandemic so can be boring. Otherwise, I would still venture happily to Shutters with the knowledge that I can easily park with affordable valet service while having a quiet and tranquil meal with friends and family.

    Courtyard seating on a chilly night, required some heating units, which made it pleasant. Service was slow, but professional and courteous. Hamachi sashimi appetizer was a little strong, disappointing. Scallop entree was a tad rare to my liking and also cooled quickly, due to outside temp. Companions steak was cooked perfectly, but 8 ounces just too much food. Constant traffic of people arriving and departing hotel, all walk through outside patio, so it’s a busy as people walk through the area.

    Maybe I caught them on a bad night but the service was very slow. Probably the problem was in the kitchen because the wait staff was trying very hard. My dish, short rib pappardelle was terrible and my wife's lamb chops came ice cold and overcooked [they replaced it in about 15 minutes]. The parking situation has always been troublesome but now its worse with traffic backed up all the way to Ocean Ave. With people checking in and out of the hotel and probably some major event going on, we had to wait about 15 minutes before the valet service could take out car. Its all just too bad because this used to be one of our favorite dining spots.

    Really really lovely time. Went for a girls dinner to celebrate my birthday. Service was great (thank you Jonathan) and all the food was outstanding. The yellowtail crudo and citrus salad were so so fresh. The lamb chops and Scallops were cooked perfectly and so yummy. The sauces were excellent —not overpowering. The desserts were 100 worth it! Highly recommend both the salted Carmel sundae (with Carmel corn!!!) and the chocolate cake. I really loved every bite of this meal.

    Returning to SoCal and Santa Monica. We totally enjoy how Shutters has continued to use the old arrival car park as outdoor dining for 1 Pico. Much better use! Have dined many times on this new outdoor space. Only wish they could better control groups of folks standing right by one’s table in the dining area waiting for events to begin inside or the rest of their family to come out form the hotel. Makes in noisy and congested. Ask to be seated on the opposite side of the space from the walkway to the lobby. Great food and wine. Lovely service.

    Our Easter Sunday brunch was one of our nicest experiences ever. Everything was indeed outstanding. The fish order arrived overcooked but it was recified pretty quickly. The fact that we'd ordered an appetizer made it easier to wait along with the fact that we were offered a free round of beverages. We will visit again.

    We had high expectations and they just missed the mark here. Very bumpy start to the meal, with my girlfriend receiving a glass of Prosecco a good five minutes before mine was poured. Our server was flustered and appeared she had the responsibility of the entire courtyard section, which was too much for just one server to provide the service expected at this hotel and price point. Management appeared to set her up to fail with such a large section by herself. My steak and eggs main course was cooked to extra well done after I had ordered it medium rare. No one checked on us for food satisfaction. There was a lengthy delay between clearing of main courses and receiving desserts, even with the 3 course meal items being ordered all at the outset of the experience. I was charged $45 corkage after being quoted $30 by a hotel operator earlier that day. I told a restaurant manager about this and he gave me a 1 drink coupon with his business card. Overall, the Easter brunch experience was a bit disappointing.
