I am looking for some seafood restaurants recommendations In Santa Monica.

I know Santa Monica in general isn't a cheap place but any suggestions where prices are "reasonably priced" appreciated.

Blue Plate Oysterette, Water Grill. Herringbone, Catch at Casa del Mar Hotel. All have great happy hours. Also, The Lobster. All restaurants in SM have a large seafood menu, even Chez Jay, Galley, and others.

Enterprise Fish, Seasalt Fish Grill, The Albright. If you like Hawaiian Poke (raw tuna, delish!), I prefer Poke Poke at Venice Beach, it is the most authentic of the many, many poke shops that appeared recently (tip: don't get poke on rice. It's better alone or with vegetables).

Everything Elle shared is great, too. And I agree with her, you can get fish at most restaurants, and darn good! I almost always get the fresh catch of the day at my favorite Italian place, Il Forno on Ocean Park Blvd.

We were just at the Water Grill on Thursday evening. Always a great meal, and less expensive than The Lobster, which is my favorite.

Funny, I didn't recommend the Water Grill, I thought it was too pricy. I'm almost unable to go anywhere but Water Grill, the restaurant is lovely and the fish is cooked so beautifully there. It has been a couple of years since I've been to the Lobster. Good to know, CAnative!
