We found this place on TA and went there for late dinner. Great experience with descent prices. I ate tuna burger and trust me, with my "picky" appetite I literally ate in two bits. My boyfriend took some part of beef (not sure about name) and if he said with his meet expertise that is really good, I must trust... More

Happy Hour and special of the day for lunch are a super value. Cocktails were creative and very good. Burger and fries were fine. Friendly, well trained staff.

This place is great top to bottom. Menu choice is outstanding. Service was top notch very attentive staff, knowledgeable about the menu, and food was great. The mushroom soup was excellent, I could have had a second bowl. The butternut squash soup was of equal taste. The ability to meet dietary issues was done without skipping a beat. I can't... More

Walking along 3rd Street promenade in Santa Monica, got hungry and looked for a place to eat. Opened up Trip Advisor and saw this place just 60 meters away and highly ranked. I must say that all the rave reviews you see here are highly justified! Place looks amazing and has this cool 1930's era fee to it. We were... More

We are a family of 5 with 2 boys 16 & 13 and a girl of 11. We were staying in Santa Monica for a couple of nights and needed somewhere to eat quickly around 6pm, we checked Trip Advisor to see what came up nearby and were delighted when The Misfit came up as a recommended/top rated restaurant ....

It was a beautiful day in Santa Monica and we scored outdoor seating at this fine restaurant. The service and food were great, and I strongly suggest following the server's suggestions as they were all excellent during our visit. The crispy chicken sandwich is definitely special.

Visited here for Sunday dinner after attending a sporting event. As usual, we asked the server for recommendations based on her favorites. At first we thought she was a genius, but after tasting everything we figured the entire menu was just awesome! First we had the Tuna Tataki which was incredible. Fresh, flavorful, generous, fantastic! We also shared the Cauliflower... More

This is a very nice place close between 3rd Street and Ocean Avenue. It was fully booked when we went by, but we could get a table after a 45 min wait (we were warned with a text message, very accurate and convenient). Busy atmosphere, friendly staff, good winelist, we had a delicious grilled salmon.

Came here for dinner with my man, based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. We were only one night in Santa Monica and we wanted to make sure we had a great meal and we did!! We shared three dishes - roasted root vegetables that were so good with a goat cheese reduction that made me want... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
