The food is excellent, albeit a tad pricey. The oysters were delicious and very fresh. We had lobster tacos and swordfish, both of which were very tasty. They have an excellent wine selection too. We sat outside on the patio which was cute with string...More

- Superb location - Valet - Outdoor seating - Blankets at the outdoor tables - Delicious oysters Opportunities: - Limited drink selection, no liquor, limited beer - In the afternoon, it becomes difficult to dodge the sun shining in your face.

We ordered the fish special of the day for 28$ and it came with nothing and we were each given a piece of fish that was smaller than my hand. Way too expensive for what it is. Service was very slow. We left 120$ later...More

Great variety of fresh seafood and the ocean view from the outside patio is breathtaking. Staff was very polite and helpful.

We found this restaurant amid a lot of more expensive and fancier spots on Ocean Drive. The fresh oysters, grilled octopus, clam chowder, and crab cake were all excellent, as well as the attentive service.

Trendy Mexican restaurant on Ocean Avenue. Food is decent but on expensive side. Good lobster tacos but cost of $26 for three. Chicken tacos are $15. Decent margaritas and guacamole. Across the street from ocean so you get sort of a view especially if on...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

If you go to the Blueplate web site, they have a "parking" URL that will give a lot of local info in detail. Or use google earth and you can see all the parking lots that are around the place. Looks like a parking lot... More
