The incredible views of the beach and the Santa Monica Pier make One Pico in Shutters on the Beach a romantic restaurant. It’s not hushed and formal; rather you’ll find that One Pico has a very warm and upbeat atmosphere that we think makes it a great spot for a date. If you want an especially evocative view, the tables along the window — particularly the one on the far left — are good choices, since the person facing south has a direct view of the pier. We also recommend arriving early so you can sit and enjoy a cocktail at the small bar right in One Pico or in the adjoining lobby while listening to the live music that’s often being played.
