A definite No

Started off the dinner ( which is hoped would be relaxing) with a dirty coffee cup. Waiter (nice) replaced right away but things went downhill from there. Caesar okay, burger brought out without toppings I ordered then when they took it back to the kitchen I got the same burger back (now cold) with... read more

We were sat within 10 miles minutes which was the best part of the experience. Then took 10 minutes & give an order. Wait some more. Friend is diabetic so we finally had to get up to get him a coke. No apologies. Food eventually came after 30 minutes (we're talking burgers). Then had to go inside to get iced... More

awesome outdoor seating and a fairly extensive menu, with regular modest "happy hour" deals offered. we had a great sunset and enjoyed the unique space near the airport. unfortunately, the service could only be desribed, chairtably, as quite average, with delays in getting food ordered, slow from the kitchen, and indifferent staff

This eatery reminded me of the good old days when you could rent a Cessna or Piper for $16/hr and fly to little airports across this great country and enjoy a meal and feel right at home while doing so. From the Spitfire, a short walk to the observation deck at General Aviation brought back a flood of flying memories.... More

I am about to go to lunch at Spitfire Grill, something I do at least once a month. It is close to the 10 Freeway and an oasis in the bustle of south Santa Monica. Never pretentious, and therefore also never outstanding food. Good and reliable.

I ordered the ribs. They were a great size for the price. They were dry rubbed and heavy with the rub. Tried to add sauce but it just didn't work. I will say this... Manager came out I explained my issue. He was very nice and apologized. The rest of my family loved the fish so maybe that's the selection... More

We had never been to the Spitfire Resturant but very happy we stopped in. We were fortunate to get a outside table. We placed our orders for Burgers and fries. Within 10 minutes the waitress brought our food. The burgers were cooked to perfection and huge! Neither one of us could eat the whole burger. The Resturant sits directly across... More

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.
