    Loved the laid back vibe while the food was still top notch. I would return and eat the exact same dish I ordered, it was delicious. Service was also fantastic.

    This was a wonderful dining experience with a view of the ocean. Our server's name was Jewels and she was excellent. The food was of high quality and cooked to perfection. This was a fun and exciting anniversary dinner and we will definitely go back when we are in the Pismo Beach area.

    Our "Go To" for special occasions because it's fancy and beautiful but not pretentious. Food is always spectacular. If you can get a seat outside on the patio it's nice for sunset. We got seated by the fish tank which is generally where we get sat, and we enjoy watching the fish. They let you go to the bar to wait until your table is ready if you are early so we did that. My husband loves oysters, will only order them here because they have the freshest ones and the best presentation. He got the kumiai oysters and they were delicious as always. He got the Whisky Six and I got the Strawberry Samurai and we were both pleased with our drinks. The bartenders are gracious and the bar is a nice area to just hang out, it would be great to pop in for a cocktail and some oysters. Our food was exceptional. My husband got the risotto and it was the best either of us have ever had. He said he felt bad eating it all because it was so good he didn't want the bowl of it to end. The Crudo Sampler was the other item he ordered and he loved it as well. I got the Prime Filet and it's delicious, the sauce is to die for, and the proportions of everything are perfect. They always cook it perfectly. Everything is balanced flavor wise and has complex layers to it without being overbearing. They also do have a kids menu so don't be scared to bring your kids here! They are very kind even though it's a fancy place. The table next to us had children and everyone was so sweet to them. Our waiter Tristan was wonderful. He was friendly and knowledgeable and had the perfect balance of being attentive while also letting us talk and enjoy our food. We got an ice cream dessert for it being our anniversary which unexpected. The salted caramel ice cream is amazing and then I got the creme brulee which is again, something we pretty much only order here, and my husband got the Ramos Pinto Tawny Port which is the only non Paso Port we have tried and liked so far. Go here, it's worth every penny.

    Birthday celebration. Dinner was lovely. A tad pricey for the quantity served, but it was delicious.

    Been looking forward to going to the Oyster Loft for so long - reservation was early and the restaurant was not busy. Hostess sat us at the worst table ever…even though lots of other tables were available. It was freezing outside and every time the door to the patio was opened - it was like a freezing wind tunnel. Food was good - mushroom risotto was lacking risotto, pork chop was excellent as was the caramel desert. Waiter was professional and charming. Be careful with your table choice.

    We have loved Oyster Loft over the years. Last night's dinner left us hungry. Food was delicious as usual but portion sizes have shrunk significantly. There were four of us in our dinner party and for $500 (with tip) there are better options.

    From the cocktails at the bar, to the wine list, to the beautifully presented crudo, to the entrees, to the wait staff, Oyster Loft does not disappoint. Everything was delicious, service was meticulous (thanks for all the humor, Natalie), and the pace and ambience just added to our party’s relaxed evening. Always a treat to dine here.
