As someone who has been to this restaurant dozens and dozens of times over the last few years, it PAINS me to say that under the recent management change, Blue Plate Oysterette's quality has suffered tremendously. What was once an outstanding menu with fantastic quality...More

Every food item ordered here is served fresh and perfectly prepared. The oyster selection is robust and the lobster mac 'n cheese is creamy-savory heaven - so good we came back twice for it!

It wasn’t our first time at BP Oyster as we seem to make it a point of going there for oysters every time we’re in Santa Monica. Easy walking distance from many hotels close to 3rd Street Promenade, good selection of oysters from both coasts...More

Santa Monica
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
