One Pico Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: One Pico is pleasantly decorated in clear tones under a high wooden ceiling and exposed beams, with elegant, widely spaced tables. It remains romantic, with the moon's rays glittering on the Pacific through the palm trees and the massive fireplace.

Food & Drinks: Being so close to the water, you will probably be in the mood for seafood. And it would be a good choice, because the quality and freshness are above reproach. Meat eaters will find grilled lamb chops and Prime steaks. End on a sweet note with chocolate lava cake. You will find the wine list on the back of the menu with selections from Northern California, France, Italy and Spain. The service is professional and courteous.
