This place got outstanding reviews on Yelp, so we had to try it - needless to say, it exceeded our expectations. We went on a Sunday around 12noon expecting a long wait, but instead got seated right away. The service was unrivaled- every server was friendly and smiling. The drinks were good - even better because it was happy hour... More

Located right outside of the Santa Monica Promenade, you can grab some cocktails and snacks at the bar, or enjoy casual comfort food at a table. They offer a bunch of dishes meant for sharing, so, to start we I shared the Life’s A Choke Charred Broccoli (sweet sambal, crispy garlic, soy). Loved this. The broccoli was wonderfully cooked with... More

We've only eaten here once on Jan. 6, 2015, but here's what I learned. Tips: * Their "To Be Shared" meal on the Prime Rib French Dip Nik NIks" was not enough for two as thought. Why do they call it to be shared? You only get three on the small rolls w/ the prime rib meat on them, but... More

The name "Misfit" is perfect because there are variety of items on the menu to share. Not necessarily paired for one another but it's all tasty -- Together or as individuals. Mmmm so tasty! Try the Pumpkin Polenta, although I'd say it's not so pumpkiny -- but the pomegranate seeds add a delightful taste to each bite. Then there's the... More

Excellent food, worth the wait to get in. Many choices on the menu and we shared small plates and all were delicious. I think the service could have been a little better, but they were busy and maybe a bit overwhelmed. I would go back that is for sure!

Misfits, a burlesque bar/restaurant has a romantic yet fun atmosphere. Our waitress was always very avid in making sure we were content and the food was great. Get the string cut fries with blue cheese and the house salad with the chicken. The chicken was marinated to the T and could not have been better and the fresh squeezed lemonade... More

The Pumpkin Polenta, Prime Rib French Dip Nik Niks, and Olive Oil Sea Salt Gelato were my favorites but the whole menu was amazing. My friends are vegetarians and there were plenty of options available for everyone. I highly recommend The Problem Child cocktail also.
