If you are not a guest at the hotel, then remember you are dining at ‘Shutters on the Beach’. That’s the restaurant within the 1 Pico.
Absolutely beautiful out door dining area. Lots of character. Dinner is rarely this delicious. The Chef has a rare ability to deliver a dinner that is both filling and satisfying, but also leaves room for dessert. This is the first time in years I’ve had room for dessert and yet the dinner was filling. 5 Stars

It was ok. My guests enjoyed it so that was a win. The food was pedestrian and that was a disappointment.

Dine LA. Always nice double cut lamb chops. We always come for the event. They converted the valet parking area into the Covid friendly outdoor dining area.

Came here tonight for Dine LA Week. We were sat under the tree which was so beautiful and the ambiance was perfect! It may be because of the socially distant dining but it definitely made it feel like we were far enough from other people and we cannot hear other people’s conversation, so it’s really conducive for conversation. The servers wore face masks, face shields and food handlers are wearing gloves. I had blue prawns for appetizer, that was delicious and juicy!!! I had Mediterranean sea bass for main entree with ratatouille, the fish was perfectly cooked. I had the strawberry rhubarb tart, though I wish I ordered the caramel popcorn sundae instead, as that looked yummy!!!

One thing I hate when I’m out to dinner is being rushed, and the servers here definitely did not rush us at all, to the point that I actually wished they came sooner in some times we needed them, but we were not in a hurry so it was nice to left alone and have wonderful conversation.

Will definitely recommend this place to people.

Perhaps one of the best meals we've had at One Pico which has always been "solid". This last meal was creative, artistically presented with excellent flavors. Service in their "parking circle" was excellent. Caramel Popcorn Sundae the best dessert I've had at a restaurant in years.

We dined during Dine LA week. The ambience was wonderful as they reconfigured
the valet parking entrance and tables surrounded the beautiful corral tree with
lanterns and twinkling lights.

The LA dine menu was $55 per person + and offered choices for appetizer/entree/dessert.
We started with the blue prawns which were delicious. We had one each of the lamb chops and Mediterranean Sea Bass , which was excellent, as was the popcorn ice cream sundae dessert. They made a wonderful cosmopolitan.

Tables were all spaced out appropriately during these Covid times but gave a sense of a beautiful night of normalcy!

This is my third time at this amazing restaurant but a first dining on the patio, it was very comfortable and intimate. The Dine LA menu was wonderful; the lamb chops and sea bass were simply divine, and the service was exceptional, another beautiful night in the city.

Food delicious, if pricey. Table service was very good. Asked hostess for an extra chair
so I didn't have to put my purse on the ground, since this was the former motor court
we were eating at. She told me that was impossible--they had shortage of chairs! Even
though the restaurant was more than 1/2 empty. A few minutes later, I asked one of the
busboys about an extra chair, and he was happy to accommodate me. p.s. The restaurant never filled up while we were there, and there were lots of empty chairs all evening. Too bad she had such a sour, non-helpful attitude. Started the evening off on
a bad footing. Otherwise, lovely re-configured space.

Service and food were excellent! Great wine list as well. Very good ambiance - the only issue is our table was set near the alley so there was quite a bit of noise from people on Bird scooters or driving by in loud cars but overall great experience and valet parking is only $10 with validation.

We came to celebrate our engagement and I’m so glad we chose Shutters and 1 Pico. A 10/10 meal, service, ambience, and locale. I had the burrata and swordfish and my fiancée had the octopus and the fettuccini for dinner. For dessert, I had the apple tart and he had the salted brownie sundae. Everything was outstanding. He still is gushing over the pasta and the sundae even now! Will definitely come back.

The service, food and ambience were all excellent at this beautiful restaurant! My friend and I both ordered from the the prix fixe lunch menu, which was very reasonably priced and included a glass of wine! I am not a fan of kale, but I trusted our server and ordered the kale salad. It was every bit as delicious as she promised it would be! We both ordered the branzino, which was also delicious, and a generous portion. I forgot to mention we were sat at a lovely table by windows which opened, so we were able to enjoy a fabulous ocean view and ocean breezes as we dined. I can’t wait to return to this little gem!!
