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.

This is quite a busy place so you need to book a table in advance, though if you are ok to sit in a bar and wait for 20-30 minutes for a table then it is ok just to show up without reservation. As beer lovers we were glad to have some selections of craft beers unlike many other places... More

I love Misfit, I especially love Misfit for their HH which is every day until 7. Bomb and unique drinks. I love drinking kombucha and this place actually has kombucha cocktails, something that's rare and different and I applaud them for it. Their menu is the perfect size, a seasonal side and their normal menu on the bottom. I didn't... More

Misfit is always busy, for lunch or dinner, so expect a little bit of a wait for prime brunch or dinner hours. (They only take reservations for large groups.) And while the servers are always friendly, service can be a bit slow during these times as well. I've eaten there many times and prefer lunch/brunch as it tends to be... More

We had high hopes for Misfit based on other yelp reviews, perhaps it is because we come from Houston and are spoiled for choice. We ordered : one beer, one cocktail, two soft drinks, the asparagus with chervil and avocado toast as starters. Two misfit burgers and one filet mignon with fries. The avocado toast was very good, the asparagus... More

This place was a packed and happening place, food and drinks were outstanding. Try the bacon wrapped dates and the brussel sprout salad.

Atmosphere: excellent with many people all talking and having a good time on a wednesday night! Food: Very good salmon and burger! Drinks: Absolutely phenomenal. The bartenders have real talent here. If you tell them your main alcohol preference they will make a drink that caters to you. Do yourself a favor and COME HERE!!

Younger crowd, food was very good and healthy worth the wait to get in, very crowded, they gave us free cookies when we were done, drinks small but tasty. Service was great, definitely would return

The restaurant is beautifully decorated. High ceilings and a great bar and fixtures. It's right in the heart of Santa Monica, just by Third Street Promenade so location is great. We ordered a few plates to split. Avocado Toast - made with locally sourced ingredients crunchy and tasty burrata on top. The kale quinoa salad was really good and simple.Bacon... More
