A little noisy but great food

If you're looking for a quiet romantic place this isn't it. However if you're looking for a fun lively bar and restaurant thus pls w is pretty busy almost every night. The menu is interesting and the food very tasty.

Really cool place! The name is pretty apt as it doesn't quite fit into any particular category. The ambiance is kind of like a trendy cocktail bar but it also does proper food (with a USP of being locally sourced etc) like a genuine restaurant. Really enjoyed the food and cocktails. We shared the chicken burger, mac & cheese and... More

Meet up here for drinks on occasion, always a great time--good music, happy crowd, cute bartenders! Brunch for the first time last week-lightest crepes with the freshest berries...and they called them pancakes! So yummy though, and since they were so light, no guilt for eating every bite! Delish.

Were there for dinner and decided to sit outside because inside was very noisy. Food was good and tasty and the service friendly and very attentive. Tables for two outside could be a bit bigger. It seems to be a real trendy place and we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. Nice gesture to get a sea... More

I've been here a few times and it's one of the few places that I enjoying going back to in LA county. :) Their cocktails are phenomenal and the wine selection is pretty decent. :) I love their happy hour, the food is good and not ridiculously expensive, and the service has always been very consistent. The interior is well... More

Outstanding food and service. Needed a table for 6 and they held one for us when our friends were a little late as they don't take reservations. Great happy hour. Top quality beverages and food. Good for sharing plates or eating without sharing. Reasonable prices.

Sat outside on a week night. Nice spot. Food a little bit pricey for what is served but it was tasty. Service was reallly poor and was also poor on a previous visit. Bar inside is very cool, as is the main room but there is a little bit of attitude on the door and it is alway impossible to... More

A great place with the usual long American bar. Atmosphere was brilliant and the food also. Would recommend the fried chicken and the Misfit Burger - and don't forget the corn and the spicy broccoli - out of this world

A great place for HH. Everyday from opening until 7pm. Have a drink downstairs or some bar food. The employees here are really friendly and the drinks are great.

I bring everyone here. The food is always great and it's small plate dining so it's easy to share or perfect if you don't want a huge meal. The cocktail menu is lovely. My favorite is the kale and quinoa salad and the champagne cocktail... Can't remember the name at the moment!

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.
