The menu also includes fish dishes, shellfish preparations and a selection of meat to round out the offerings. The range of the menu offers you the opportunity to choose your dining experience.
Oyster Loft never disappoints us! The meal is excellent. The servers are personable and alert. The dessert server is amazing. I wish I had recorded her. I never heard food described so beautifully! And it was delicious too !
Oysters are amazing and worth going for. Entrees and sauces are out of this world.
Excellent service, sumptuous food (price is up there but well worth it), and cozy ambiance.
The Oyster Loft is one my business travel group's favorites. We love the broad variety at the Loft. Their other seafood is outstanding, too, for example the Halibut. The Caesar salad is huge but not as tasty as more "authentic" Caesars I've experienced.
My husband took me here for my Birthday and it was fantastic. Food, drinks and dessert could have been better!! It's a little pricey but well worth it if you are looking for great food & drinks with a great ambiance!!!
I have been here several times since it has opened. It has become more of a casual nice restaurant. It has lost some of its allure as an upscale dining experience. From the ambiance to the clientele that wear tank tops and ball caps.
Everything was great as always. The only negative thing was the children making all the noise. It ruined date night with my wife.
Had lukewarm soup, crab cakes were just ok, expected a better meal for the price.
The food was great and the presentation was amazing. The service was top notch. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks were great and the dessert was LIGHTS OUT! I will definitely go back.
Fantastic experience every time we visit.
Where do I start? Not our first visit and definitely not our last. We LOVE this place! Super fresh seafood with incredibly creative preparation and presentation. Started at Happy Hour and the Mission Oysters. Plump, juicy and briney. Moved on to our personal favorites, the Malpeque Oysters from Prince Edward Island.... a bit smaller but crunchy and super briney. Both served with a trio of fresh horseradish, Marionette sauce and cocktail sauce. From there we ordered another favorite.... the Orange Glazed Octopus- OMG! AMAZING! Then it was on to the Crudo Sampler-an assortment of fresh Sashimi. All this accompanied with a cold crisp bottle of Tattinger Champagne..... we never made it to an dinner choice! Instead our evening ended with a fabulous fig butter cake that melted in our mouths! Can’t wait to go back!!
This was our second visit to the Oyster Loft. we were there in September and absolutely loved it. It is an amazing value for the quality. We sat at the bar and the bartender, Dane, took great care of us. don't skip the oysters because they are the star of the show, so many delicious varieties it can be hard to choose, but Dane was spot on in his recommendations! We also shared the seafood crudo platter which was huge! Creme Brulee was our dessert choice and an it was fantastic!. So pretty, it came decorated with berries and a macaron. One of our favorite spots anywhere in the world.
Service was good but server had to reemphasize crudo was a raw dish, not cooked. As diner i knew this and felt the server felt i may not have known my knowledge was there. Too young and not understanding his own menu. The view however was amazing!!! Great spot on the 'patio'. Perfect for special occasion. Tasty food!
Love this restaurant! Excellent cocktails, food, service and ambiance. What more could you want?
Outstanding service, view, food and atmosphere. The absolute best gluten free dessert I have ever had with the coconut cake! I'm going to come back, and it's a 3 hour drive for me!
Our server Todd was awesome. We were there on Thanksgiving with a reservation outside so we had no wait and got seated promptly. We had Oysters, Octopus, and the poppers for appetizers. Outstanding! Our cocktail was a cranberry margarita. Outstanding! Our Entrees were the Dogfish, Salmon, Scallops, and the Shashimi sampler. Outstanding again! I felt as if I was on a Culinary Roadtrip! View was awesome too!
Delicious oysters and amazing staff! Will come back here again the next time we’re in Pismo.
Both the food and cocktails are amazing!
I had the braised beef and polenta. I highly recommend it. Hearty but not heavy. Great balance of mushrooms, beef, polenta and Madeira sauce. We also had the Halibut. The mixture of mashed potatoes, fennel, peas and peas tendrils (I cannot remember what else was in there!) was sooo good. I could have had that alone for an entree. Very happy however that the chef Perfectly seasoned and cooked the added Halibut.
Can hardly wait to return!
Wonderful fresh seafood great service beautiful view of the Bay can't say anymore
Had dinner here while staying in Pismo Beach. Came early to see the beautiful sunset. The halibut and scallops were outstanding, as was the service.
Best dinner I have had in a long time. There Beef Tataki is to die for.
I asked for a view with my reservation for a special birthday and we were seated at an aquarium with NO window in site. Pretty ridiculous considering I had a RESERVATION.
We had an amazing dinner here on Sat 11/17 and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite! We were running late 10 mins late, and were delighted that the hostess called to confirm we'd make it. When we got there we got a warm welcome. Our server was attentive and the food came out in great timing. I am not one that has a big appetite. I usually don't have appetizers, and save myself for the entree, and no room for dessert. However, being named The Oyster Loft, I had to come hungry enough to have oysters before my entree. We were going to order a dozen, but decided to get 6 oysters and then split an appetizer. The oysters were so fresh and clean tasting, that we ordered 6 more. The scallop carpaccio was amazing! Such a unique flavor! Then came our entrees. We felt a little silly ordering steaks from a seafood restaurant, but since we had seafood to start, we felt we'd go for it. The filet mignon was superb! The bleu cheese mousse and port wine reduction were distinct flavors in my mouth that were absolutely divine. My husband had steak too and it was just as good. Sometimes I'll eat a bite of his food, and then get sad I didn't order it, but both were each good in their own right. Since we were pleased with every thing we had ordered, we decided stuffing ourselves with dessert would be worth it, and it was! We had the featured dessert - a fig cake and ice cream. SOOO good! I have never raved about food this much. Such high quality, great service, and beautiful location. Definitely will go out of our way to travel to eat here again!
Great raw and cooked seafood menu! Fantastic views!
We love Oyster Loft! Service has been
Excellent! Everything was perfect. The food, the atmosphere, the service - all excellent! Thank you. ☺
Absolutely delicious, amazing, and creative choices. Some places you go wow you one time, and the next time the exact same dish isn’t so great. Oyster Loft is amazing for being consistently incredible and delicious!
Great food, great service and a spectacular view . A very romantic outdoor setting. Wonderful special occasion dinner!
My husband and I were visiting Pismo Beach for our anniversary. We decided to check out the Oyster Loft based on Google reviews. The food was delicious and presentation was amazing. Our server (I believe his name was Paco) helped us through the menu and made great recommendations for both wine and oyster selections. We will definitely be returning for the oyster bar!
Loved it! Will come back for sure!
Food was GREAT! The pork chop is CRAZY good. Halibut was also great but not quite as good as the pork. Poke tower has never let me down. Service was pretty slow and refills on drinks dragged for a bit. Ended up skipping dessert (even though I LOVE their desserts) because we ran out of time. I’m being a little nit-picky, but make no mistake, I loved my meal. Will come back on our next special occasion!
Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. Great meal, excellent service (Paco), great drinks. We really enjoyed the evening.
We loved this place. The presentation, service and food were amazing. Don’t miss the fall cocktail.
Another fantastic dinner at Oyster Loft. Great fish dinners, our two favorites are halibut and sea bass, and they didn't disappoint. Great wine selection, or bring your own.
Excellent service. My favorite restaurant on the west coast. Drove over 2 hours from home just to eat there.
Excellent service, there when needed but not too often.
Waiter did a great job of explaining the menu options, and specials.
Food was prepared very well, and very appetizing plating.
We have eaten there two times and will definitely be back.
My wife and I celebrated our 38th anniversary at the Oyster Loft. We were seated on the heated patio with a view of the ocean and Pismo Pier. Victor, our server, was attentive and knowledgeable.
The service and food were outstanding. Thank you!!
Great food, great service (Victor was our waiter.), and great atmosphere!!
