“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

I loved the fish tacos, the musssels, the artichoke and the service were all excellent.This is the sort of restaurant you might bypass by mistake. It is a small insignificant hole in the wall. However, it should not be underestimated as wonderfully cheap and cheerful by the beach - awesome.

“Blue Plate Oysterette - Crazy Name, Crazy Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

We never miss Blue Plate when we visit LA! It's small and there is often a wait to get seated - but any wait would be worth it. The food is wonderful and it's great fun to share their "small plates" (expecially the lobster mac & cheese, the lobster roll, the oysters Rockefeller, the ceviche). If you have room, their sundae and their unique version of key lime pie are delicious dessert options! Combine the excellent food and the attentive, cheerful service and you have a food destination in Santa Monica that you should not miss. Valet parking available and needed!

“Great service, excellent seafood. Nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

Had dinner here tonight and really enjoyed the seafood. Crab dip was delicious and the salmon was fresh. Nice and small and had local feel to it instead of tourist food. Overall excellent.

“Delicious fish & chips, fries and bouillabaisse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

Great seafood and great value. Small restaurant but good atmosphere. We ate in the outdoor patio and with the heaters and vinyl walls it was very comfortable. We will be back!

“Good for adults and kids.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2011

Tasty, flavorful food. We had the calamari and our kids devoured most of it, then oysters, and then mussels. Great food and service was friendly and staff was pretty cool. We will be back.
