Avoid all the tourist chains and other restaurants on Third Street and Santa Monica Place and go to The Misfit. The interior is like an old Fance brasserie with a lot of seating area. If you see the menu you just want to try everything because they make something new out of all kind of classics. If you're in for... More

This old bank building has been transformed into one of the coolest restaurants I've been in in a long time. Lots to look at on the walls, behind the bar and upstairs. Add to that a great staff that included very accommodating and knowledgeable waitress (way to go #31/Sammi) and fantastic food…what's not to like? LOVED the avocado toast and... More

We had dinner here - the menu was interesting with some great choices. We ordered a chicken and beef burger and a side of fries. Everything was delicious - the fries could have been shared between 4 people! And the sauce that accompanies it was amazing! Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable when asking about items on the menu. It... More

We had a delicious lunch at this restaurant. The food was creative, fresh and yummy. I was with my husband and daughter and we all have different picky food requirements (they say right on the menu, "vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, or we'll make it that way", and they really do). The staff was accommodating to our requests and we loved... More

8 friends on a Sunday night , the place was full with a great atmosphere. The food was good, although was presented to the the table a little too quickly for our liking. Service came with a smile and the tequila measures were ample. A good night out.

11:30 on a Friday night and we've yet to have dinner-- an unfortunate yet typical scenario for my life. Since we're out and about, too tired to haul out the pots and pans at home after a grueling evening, the question remains: who besides Taco Bell is open at this hour? Is it possible to find a decent meal in... More

Only been here once but everyone at the table became an instant fan. We sent a family there for a special event and they raved about it. Food and service were not a disappointment!

Great Happy Hour! The bacon wrapped dates are amazing! and the Bijou drink was incredible. Super busy place, but was able to walk right in and get a cozy corner booth.

Very good tapas restaurant & they have an awesome drink selection! I love love love the sliders, the tuna tataki, the mac n cheese, & the brussels sprouts - we get them every time we go. There's ALWAYS a wait, and they DON'T take reservations or call aheads, so I recommend going early or late - but def go!

Came here at about 9.30 last Wednesday and there was no wait for a table a really friendly guy on the door showed us to a table inside but it was to noisy for us so he found us one outside that was much quieter. Our waitress was very friendly and chatty, It said small plates so I was thinking... More
