Had a great meal at The Misfit in Santa Monica. On our way up the 405 from LAX. Great beer and coffee to start. Grilled Brussel sprouts, with roasted apples, pomegranate seeds, Lebni yougart,and thyme. Delicious!! Avocado toast was also amazing with grapes and tomatoes!!...More

A little pricier than we are used to. Could definitely split meals here to save on cost. Neat atmosphere with good service. Recommend the crispy chicken sandwich for sure.

The Dark woods, large long bar and a young professional crowd made me think that the Misfit belongs in the middle of Manhattan. There bartenders will custom craft any cocktail that you want as well as some of the house specialties. My team did not...More

A bustling hipster bar serving up those oldies like a rob Roy! Once was a bank so has a well appointed bar! A must for the Misfits is their prime rib sliders

This is a straight ahead very popular place in downtown Santa Monica. No dishes with unpronounceable names. Food well prepared and promptly served. Good place for lunch...

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

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We had dinner with you on Monday Nov 16th. The food was excellent as was the attention our waitress paid to me having a meat allergy as she ensured that the broccoli we ordered was not cooked on the same grill where meat was cooked. We had your kale salad, fired chicken, and broccoli. One suggestion concerning the kale. My wife comes from a country where greens of some kind are served with every meal. They are particularly careful in washing greens to ensure that there is no dirt or grit remaining. The kale in our salad had some grit remaining - would have benefited from another wash or 2. Thanks
