I've worked in Santa Monica for the past 6 years, so I've had the opportunity to try many local bars and restaurants. Misfit happens to be one of my favorite. The food is good & it's a great place to take friends and/or meet new people. Now, the place can get crowded, so I wouldn't recommend going there for a... More

I visited southern CA in July with a party of 8 women to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday. The night we had dinner at this restaurant we had spent the entire day riding bikes along the beach. By the time we turned in our bikes and got back to our cars, we were starving and desperate to find a place... More

My wife and I had an unexpected extra night in SoCal so we decided to explore downtown Santa Monica. We checked a couple of restaurants out but one was close, a couple weren't what we were looking for and we stumbled upon The Misfit. I'm not one that likes to wait on queue but it was a beautiful evening and... More

Came here for dinner with a group of 12 people. The service here was amazing for such a big party we had. Our drinks were always on time and the food was amazing. I recommend the mac and cheese and the french fries!

We stopped by for cocktails and appetizers. I don't usually go gluten free but the Mac and cheese was fantastic as well as the tuna. Good cocktail variety and a nice atmosphere in the place. Feels almost pub like.

The chicken breast sandwich was also very good. The come round after your meal with cookies with chocolate chip and sea salt. definitely worth a visit. A bit on the noisy... More

Loved this place. Great location. Very cool menu. Our group ranged from teens to grandparents . . . First time visit for late lunch - From killer brussels sprout salad, & scrumptious kale salad, to Burger & fries, chicken sandwich, garbanzo bean wrap, huevos rancheros . . . all delightful. The surprise basket of salted chocolate chip cookies was the... More

This is easily our favorite restaurant in Santa Monica. I live in the area and have tried quite a bit but we are ALWAYS trying to get in here. They don't take reservations and you can always bank on waiting at least 45 minutes on a Friday or Saturday night. Still go early during the week. It is ALWAYS busy.... More
