Great service great food will definitely be back!
Our favorite special occasion place to go. From the staff to the food all 5 star.
We absolutely love Oyster Loft! Food & service is exceptional. Each dish we had was unique, delicious & we ate every single bite!
It is always a pleasure to dine at the Oyster Loft. Every time we are in town we make one visit out of one of our stays. The food is Amazing. Great fresh Oysters. Appetizers are great and a variety to choose from. The salads are delicious . The main course is great, Fish, Steaks and Poultry. The dessert is wonderful and the drinks are phenomenal.
The atmosphere is beautiful, Staff is great to work with and the bar tenders are exceptional.
Fabulous drinks! Delicious food! And our waiter was one of the best!
Food was great and so was the service. Never had anything but great meals
Great view, great service, and great food!
The staff and food was amazing. A little expensive it still worth the price. We were absolutely happy with everything.
Enjoyed our evening, but the parking was terrible with all the construction outside.
The location is ideal, by the beach, overlooking the pier! Restaurant was accommodating as I have to increase my reservation count. The hostess are very nice and respectful to our requests. The service was superb. Now talking about food, it’s fine dining! The quality of food is amazing, but to people who are big eater, don’t expect quantity. Food is very appetizing, presentation is superb, and very tasty! Uno!
The food was amazing, but the best part of the experience was Michelle our server - she made our evening. Really unbelievable young lady.
I travel from North Dakota once a year to go here. Amazing food and atmosphere. Just don’t expect a cheap meal. You can guarantee that it will be the best meal you’ve ever had though
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Oyster Loft last Friday. We had a wonderful dinner! The food was fantastic! Philip, our server, was fantastic. He gave us some great recommendations, and was super attentive and helpful. Thank you to the Oyster Loft team for making our celebration so nice!
What an experience ! Not only was every dish explained IT was excellent . The best of pismo !
Delicious beyond compare. Had the Halibut with fennel and am going to try to replicate it. Husband had the risotto and loved it.
Poke, salmon, and scallops were all fantastic. Service was incredible. Will be back soon.
Great place for a romantic meal during the off season, not sure if it is that way during the summer. Ambiance, food, music, and service were top notch (Jeff was extremely attentive and knowledgeable). Make sure you get the oysters, best around...
Food was fantastic and the drinks are top quality!
This is one of my favorite local places to dine and bring out of town guests-this time, the service was unexpectedly poor. Our drink orders were not taken quickly nor delivered in a timely fashion, however the appetizers were brought on time. Our main course took over an hour to be delivered to our table with many of our guests frustrated and wanting to cancel their orders by this time. In addition, when ordering a Old Fashioned (cocktail), another waiter brought a drink made with Jim Beam and not a higher quality bourbon ( no one asked what bourbon we wanted). The drink was sent back immediately. There was not offer of accomodation for the slow service, mis-made drink or sub par response to our questions on poor service. As a local, this was frustrating and embarrassing. When I asked our waiter ( who has waited on me several time before) what happened, he offered excuses and seemed perplexed at my questions. He simply stated the kitchen was "backed up" and the wait staff was "short handed". This was a Sunday evening at 730pm with much of the dining room empty and the pace relaxed and slow. We were seated at a long family style table near the door, and the waiter commented "that table gets overlooked a lot". This was an unfortunate experience I hope is not repeated, especially with out of town guests.
The scallops were good. However, there were only three medium sized scallops in this order which was more than $30. That is $10 for one scallop. The halibut arrived dry. The sauce and vegtable were quite good, but the mashed potatoes were unremarkable. We selected this place for the ocean view. Due to the screens on the windows which could not be opened when cool or raining, there was no view. Wait staff was quick to replace the dry fish with a slightly moister version. Waiter should have informed us that the scallop dinner only had 3 scallops. The brussel sprouts with goatcheese were decent but overpriced.
Food and service was outstanding. Manager was not customer oriented. He declined to allow us to open our own wine and was inflexible regarding a future reservation.
Good food, good service, good view...what more can you ask. Did not have to wait with a reservation
We all had fabulous meals. It was a wonderful experience.
My only complaint was the Bar Service. I don't think they had enough help. It took a long time just to get a menu. Then we had to close out or tab before we could go to our table. They should allow adding the tab to our dinner menu.
We make dinner reservations at the Oyster Loft every time we visit our son at Cal Poly SLO. The seafood tower and sunset is what brings us back every time! We've also had the oyster Rockefeller, octopus salad and many varieties of sashimi which were all excellent. We highly recommend.
excellent food, both presentation and taste is at a top level
By far the best oysters I have ever had in my life! We came for our anniversary and were not disappointed. From the food to the decor to the music, it was amazing. We did wait quite a while for appetizers and some other customers who had a bit too much to drink were pretty obnoxious, but regardless we will be back for more fantastic drinks and those famous oysters!!
Great food, and excellent service.
Overall a great place; I was however disappointed that the staff failed to recognize our 30th Wedding Anniversary as requested. The cocktails were good but small for the price.
I know I know should have gone sooner after all the rave reviews😀
Loved it, had the tuna poppers/tuna Tataki/and scallops, all excellent. I saw the beet salad presentation on a table next to us, that will be part of my order next time.
Easily my new go to place to bring visiting friends/family.
My wife and I had an amazing dinner. Jeff , our server, was super attentive and friendly, and made awesome recommendations. We started with the Black Pepper Hamachi and the Orange Glazed Octopus, both were exquisite. My wife had the Cioppino (best she has ever had) and I had the pan seared Halibut, delicious! Topped it off with the Creme Brûlée and Lemon Cheesecake! Amazing dinner! Thanks Jeff!
We ordered Grilled Oysters iIncredible), (Octopus Salad (delicious), Crab Cakes (yummy), and Scallop Crudo- but our waiter mistakenly brought a cooked Scallop dinner. He took it away and soon brought it back apologizing for his mistake. He soon brought the corrected Scallop dish (amazing). Suddenly, a woman who said she was Sarah, the manager, came and removed the cooked scallops, saying she would leave them AND charge us for them, or take them back. We wondered if she was going to serve them to another guest?!
Good customer stems from good Managers, but this manager should take a lesson from her waiter!
Great food. Great service. Beautiful sunset on the patio
Amazing location with great service and quality seafood and steaks
Great meal with friends. Great food and service. We have never been disappointed with our dining experience at The Oyster Lodt.
Our server was great, the food and cocktails were excellent. Overall exceptional, we could've been dining out in any major city! It is that good.
Oysters cannot be mixed. The manager said only one employee shucks oysters and said he doesn't have time to mix oysters on one order. I suggested an additional employee be hired to help the one shucking oysters. This is our only complaint. Everything else was great.
We had an amazing dinner at ouster loft. Our server, Cameron, was awesome!!! Super knowledgeable and a lot of fun. If you’re lucky enough to get him as your server, you’ll have a great time! Highly recommend the local oysters from morrow bay, they’re delicious. Cheers!
We had a great time! Second time for us, first time for our friends. Will definitely go back!
Good overall. Service was good, very prompt and friendly.. Would go back. Crab cakes were good also.
Lovely waterfront restaurant in Pismo Beach. Wish the view was not obstructed by the shades however.
Good choices of seafood, I especially like that they serve grilled octopus and scallop carpaccio. Our server Brie was excellent. We shared small plates but everything we saw looked very good.
