Nestled away in the downtown Santa Monica madness, is this old bank redone as savvy bar/restaurant, reviving the classic cocktails aka rob roys etc ... Happy hour is a must. Drinks & apps are well worth it

When a bunch of us were trying to get a table for brunch, without having to wait much, Misfit came to our rescue. Not necessarily the best brunch I have had, but great service, excellent ambience and lovely location. I tried one of their toss up salads under local market menu, couple of vegetables seemed to be burnt. Shakshuka was... More

I stopped in here and sat outside under heat lamps. It was cozy and great people watching. We shared the Brussels and they were awesome. Two burgers, cooked perfectly. And finished up with complimentary, amazing cookies. Drinks were great too. We both got a bourbon cocktail. Happy hour drinks are a steal!

It was very very noisy - including loud music, difficult to hear partner just sitting across at a two top table. Aside from the noise though, it is a very trendy place, very nice decor, friendly staff and good food. We ordered the gluten free mac n cheese with green chili - this was yum! But quite filling for an... More

We started off with the grilled Brussel Sprouts that were out of this world! We liked them so much we ordered another. We found out later on in our trip that is one of their signature dishes and they are known for it! The prime rib sliders 🍔 are fantastic too! Service was excellent. Great menu! Hard to decide because... More

A great break from the typical artsy chic Santa Monica feeling places that seem to be on every corner. Warm, dark wood, long bar-- almost a NY feel. Drinks are great, one of the best burgers I've ever had, interesting menu options made it a great lunch stop. Staff was great, vibe was young and fun but with just enough... More

This place has got a very good vibe. Packed with young professionals and dinner dates. They get extremely busy and the waiting times at dinner can be between 45min-1hr but they do move fast with the orders considering the number of customers. Feels more like a bar with food than a restaurant. Food menu is basic and a tad on... More

We loved the interesting menu in this place. Loved the cauliflower fried rice. The burgers were very good. Great beer and cocktails. The service could have been better but it was not terrible. Definitely worth checking out.

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.
