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.
My only disappointment was I thought we would have an ocean view. With this said, the courtyard was lovely.
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.
Great service, beautiful decor, cozy ambiance, fantastic food! Can’t wait for next time!!!
They set up a lovely garden outdoors with lights in the trees. We had a fabulous dinner and tables were spaced apart. We enjoyed the evening out and the fine dining.
I love the new outside area and hope you keep it like that forever!
We went for a birthday celebration . The food was delicious and the outdoor dining ambience was fabulous
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.
Food was a little disappointing. Ambience was good, although I would rather be seeing the ocean.
It was ok +, but not extra special
We love One Pico and were happy to hear the restaurant had opened . We came for DineLA. The ambience creates outside the hotel and food were excellent! The wait staff - all the staff- were welcoming and the service impeccable
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.
What an oasis this courtyard restaurant is! Food, service and wine recommendations on point. Halibut with summer corn was delicious and desserts were to die for. A true culinary experience.
Exceptional food and service. Perfect outdoor dining.
Amazing food. Amazing service. Highly recommend
Amazing food and spectacular service! Absolutely recommend
Excellence all around. Def will be a date night place for us. We’ve gone twice in 3 weeks same excellence both experiences
It was absolutely lovely! The ambiance was fabulous and the food and cocktails were amazing. The service was top notch and as a local, I will be going back soon. Do try it out.
The filet was delicious. The sashimi appetizer and crab salad was wonderful.
Try the signature cocktails!
Food was excellent. Service from management was horrible.
Although they ran behind, they offered us a nice drink while we were waiting. Food tasted exceptional. Their wine selection is great as well.
What a truly beautiful spot. The best al fresco dining spot in Santa Monica. Grilled avocado and sea bass were perfectly grilled and full of flavor. Kir Royale cart is a nice touch. Please do Sunday Brunch 🙏🏻.
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.
Lovely setting. Our waiter was pretty inattentive and slow in every way.
Great view with great food
Amazing food. Loved the biodynamic wines on Wednesdays especially the Cazes. Swordfish also really good.
Wonderfull ambiance and atmosphere and outstanding service. But we would have appreciated more when food would have been on same level: chief probably not in the kitchen - creative recipes need professional dedication ! Sorry
Lovely location for an early Sunset dinner date. One of our favorite places along the coast.
As always, One Pico is a favorite because it is close by and one of the few places where dining is a pleasure--good service, good atmosphere and good food. What a gem!
Average food that is overpriced
Food was excellent. server was very personable and enthusiastic. Always enjoy the bright and open atmosphere, even though it was somewhat loud
Lovely , sunny restaurant with amazing views on the beach . Best Lobster BLTA in town !
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!!
I Pico was an absolutely wonderful experience. Our waiter was the best we’ve ever had.
Wonderful view and food. Will definitely go again!
For sophisticated atmosphere and ambience coupled with fine cuisine and service, highly recommended.
