LOVED it! Came here for a couple drinks with a visiting east-coast friend and our bar tab came to $22 for 4 drinks! We flagged down the bartender and found out it was their happy hour prices. Crazy, especially given that each drink took some work to make - we know, because we watched! I am now a huge fan... More

A friend and I decided to meet for dinner at Misfit's. I arrived a little early to have a relaxing beer after work about 5:45. Happy hour and the Avery White Rascal was only $5. My friend arrived as my glass arrived and we agreed to order the Mac 'n Cheese with pancetta to share. OMG! Outrageously delicious. I then... More

Loved this bar - loved the food!!! The atmosphere is amazing and the backdrop of the bar is beautiful! Had wine and appetizers (baby french dip sandwiches on rolls that melted in your mouth)!! It was a lot of fun and a great crowd.

We had two of the large appetizers for dinner - roasted brussell sprouts and a chickpea in lettuce wrap - sounds boring, right? Untrue! Probably the best food we had in Santa Monica - and we had a lot of great food there. And the atmosphere is so fun - like if they put a bar and tables in a... More

Everything I had was phenomenal. Sugar snap peas with mint and burrata - a tuna tartare appetizer situation - lobster nik niks. The atmosphere was great, as was the food. I wish I had discovered this place sooner within my two-week trip, I would have made several return visits!

We found this spot via Tripadvisor with a high rating. We were not disappointed! They had great service, quality of food, taste was wonderful and drinks were tasty. You can't go wrong with this place. This is the best food we had during our weekend in California.

The Misfit is a very hip spot right now. We like it more as a cocktails place than for a full sit down dinner. They do have outdoor seating but not very much of it and frankly not all streets are created equally. This isn't a very pretty street even though its a block from the ocean. They do have... More

Very nice atmospheric spot right in the heart of Santa Monica tourist area......decor like that of a good city center bar, great service, good food, and good pricing. Highly recommended. Need to book ahead though, it's popular!!
