We were a bit leery as this restaurant is around the corner from the obnoxious third street promenade, which is filled w/chain stores and bad food, but were really pleasantly surprised by both the food and ambience at The Misfit. They don't take reservations, but we didn't wait long on a sunday night for an early dinner. The service was... More

Drinks were good, but small for the money. Some of the small plate food we had was very good. I was very disappointed with the burger. Best I can say about it was it had a nice char.

"Appropriate Dress Required" There's a big, formidable sign at the front desk warning patrons to dress spiffy. But I think, given the proximity to the pier and the local homeless population, that's more of a deterrent to stop any nonsense from entering the place, which is a good thing. I took a friend of mine to The Misfit on a... More

We came here after dinner and got a seat at the bar which was extremely lucky. I have to say the best part of being here was people watching. Drinks were expensive but delicious. Apparently, the are some amazing cookies you can get complimentary that are amazing!

I went there on my own and had a great dinner. My server was outstanding and her name was Chaunda. The mini burgers surf and turf were nice but not outstanding.

The Misfit is a very popular, 'trendy', handsome restaurant in one of Santa Monica's oldest buildings. Food is delicious (loved the salmon and arugula, especially) and there's a great selection of wines and micro-brews. The staff is incredibly warm and gracious, and the service is surprisingly swift for a place as densely packed. The din is deafening to someone from... More

Nothing but the best food and cocktails in the Santa Monica area, with a great gastro-pub feel. The hamburger here is one of the best in the US.

What a treat! The avo toast and rice bowl were delicious. I also tried a Virgin Bloody Mary - perfect level of kick!! You won't regret it

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
