"My husband brought me to the Santa Monica Pier for my first time visit and birthday. I wanted fresh seafood and a view of the ocean and got both here. Great service, delicious, fresh, and healthy food options all in a casual atmosphere. Definitely a repeat when returning to the pier."See more

"I took my parents for dinner here. I wish the crab cake appetizer came with more than one crab cake because it was absolutely delicious. The fried oysters appetizer were also good (four came in the plate and the presentation was in oyster shells on a bed of seaweed. We had the grilled lobster which was excellently seasoned and sooo tasty. My favourite side was the mashed potatoes. The truffle fries were also good but the sauteed mushrooms were a little more rubbery than I like. The table was near the window across from the Santa Monica pier and we were early enough to see the sunset which was really pretty. The greeters, waiters and servers were all professional and friendly so I was very satisfied with my choice to treat my parents there!"See more

"Went for lunch, what stood out was the service, entrees. The ceviche was excellent along with the shrimp enchalidas, and Spanish Rice. The Garlic Shrimp Dish was also a must have. We also enjoyed a drink entitled Camouflage made with Mezcal. After having two at our table we went to the bar and had a few more. If you are in Santa Monica The Red O is a must. If you are not in Santa Monica it is worth the drive and any traffic you may incure. Directly across from Santa Monica Pier so get a window seat or eat at the bar."See more

"Dinner was truly excellent and it's location right across from the Santa Monica pier made this the perfect restaurant for a Pre Cirque du Soleil meal. We had reservations at 5:45pm and were seated immediately. We ordered appetizers, entrées and had dessert & coffee and were out in plenty of time to get across the street and to the tent. We would recommend the Knife & Fork Ceasar Salad, The Filet Mignon and the Brown Paper fish were also very flavorful. Don't leave without trying the Nutella Bread Pudding."See more

"Blue taco was great! We went there for good mexican food, a setting where we could sit and enjoy the atmosphere, and a location close to The Pier in Santa Monica. Their guacamole, lobster tacos, lobster ceviche, and fish tacos were all fresh and tasty! The prices are not bad considering the area, quality, and environment of the restaurant. Most importantly, their service was excellent. Our server was very busy, and when she was not available, a manager was inquiring if we needed anything else. This is important to me, having been in the food service industry. I was very impressed that I was never looking for a server to help me, and I saw how busy they were. I would go again."See more

"My husband and I went on a search for a great pacific sunset dining experience and found it! The outside seating features an ocean view to watch the sunset over Santa Monica pier. Calamari was okay, would have preferred it to be crispier, but the sushi was delicious and well portioned. Many times there's more rice than fish, but not at Ocean & Vine. Would definitely recommend for a lovely meal and for those chilly evenings, they offered seating for cocktails with glass fire pit."See more

"First time at this establishment. Looking through OPen Table for restaurant suggestions near the Santa Monica Pier as we were sightseeing the Pier that day. Hostess was friendly and gave us a table by the open window area. Soon waiter came to offer sparkling or distilled water. Our Pinot Grigio was perfectly chilled. The waiters suggestions were spot on. The New England Clam Chowder with Clams in the shell was delicious. My husband had the Fish and Chips, nice flaky moist white fish. I had the traditional Lobster Roll. Wow, delicious, tons of lobster meat. Amazing meal. Will be back."See more

"We came across Herringbone through DineLA. What a delightful gem in Santa Monica. The food is creative with a well balanced flavors that is not over powering to the seafood. The ingredients are fresh and you can tell the chefs care for their creations. Every plate is handle with the upmost care and presentation. We highly recommend the smoke trout salad as it was packed with flavor not to mention what a feast on the eye on the presentation! The ceviche tostada was a generous portion with refreshing and fresh ingredients. The lobster flat bread had generous portion of the lobster; though I with the flat bread can be crispier and thiner. The malted banana ice cream with hazelnut pudding/mousse was simply sinful. It was a fantastic lunch and a great value the the DineLA event. We are glad to try it out and would recommend Herringbone anytime!"See more

"As out of towners, we picked Coast as the place to celebrate my husband's birthday with a romantic dinner for two. Coast has an informal setting, and shared the same great ocean view with her fancier upstairs sister, One Pico. WhThaile we were dining, we watched the sun set over Santa Monica Pier. Our server was lovely, accomodating my request for a cup of tortilla soup (usually served in a bowl as a larger appetizer.) My husband and I both chose the fish and chips made with fresh, local halibut and we weren't disappointed. We ended the meal with a piece of the five layer chocolate cake, which our server added a candle to. Coast has a laidback, unassuming feel with delicious fare and thoughtful service. We loved it!"See more

"The view at One Pico is gorgeous. The Santa Monica Pier, the ocean and watching people outside enjoying life lend to a great dining experience. The waitress was pleasant as were all of the staff. I was not thrilled about the food. I ordered the Maine Lobster Club. The french fries were bland and the sandwhich was served on white bread and was also plain in taste (I believe it was supposed to be sourdough; it did not taste like sourdough). Parking was $7.00 for valet, which was great considering the lot behind The Shutters is $12.00 to park. It is about a 15 minute walk to the new outdoor mall, Santa Monica Place and the 3rd Street promenade. I will dine here again, but it will be more for the experience and less for the food."See more

"A gem of a dining room, with remarkable comfortable, cushy chairs allowing you to relax as you gaze out onto the Pacific Ocean. Whether you are looking to the southwest and enjoying the coastline as it tapers towards Palos Verdes, or the the Northwest, where as the sun sets you can enjoy the vibrant light show that is the Santa Monica Pier's new ferris wheel, there are no bad tables. A knowledgable service staff helps to guide you through the menu, so that the distinction between the crudo and sushi is delivered in a friendly manner, and menu questions are anaswered without a hint of pompousness or smugness that can too often invade a fine dining experience."See more
