Great place for dinner! Easy to make a reservation and a spacious place for friends and family. The cocktails are delicious as is the food! I suggest the Hawaiian poke!

I went on the recommendation from a colleague for the fish tacos. They come unassembled. It is a great piece of fresh fish with pico, quac, and tortillas with a side of rice and beans. They were great. I will be back next time I am in town. I sat at the bar for a busy lunch crowd and had... More

A second trip because I knew I wanted fish tacos and their guacamole. And it didn't disappoint again! Great sport with stellar food and amazing staff.

M St. kitchen is located on Main Street in Santa Monica. The food is mediocre. They do have a parking lot and they validate meaning parking in Santa Monica only cost you a dollar or two which is a miracle. They have burgers, fried chicken, barbecued ribs. The food is OK but nothing really stands out.

We dined here for brunch on a Saturday while we were in town for my husbands work trip. We were quoted 30 min wait time and after waiting close to 45 min. I went and asked where we were in the line. The host then brought us right in. It was worth the wait though. My food did come out... More

We were in Santa Monica for a get-away weekend, and tried M Street Kitchen for breakfast. Sat outside on the patio which was lovely on the sunny morning. Had the spicy breakfast sandwich with sausage (plus asked for jalapenos cooked in with eggs), based on reco from our server, and it was delicious. More of an omelet vs. scrambled egg,... More

This is one of Richard Melman's signature restaurant. Melman is a legend in the restaurant business and M Street is one of the examples why. I have only eaten breakfast here, but I have been here many times. Always excellent food and service with a great variety of menu. If you are ever in Santa Monica for business or pleasure... More

We are here for both dinner and breakfast while on holiday in Santa Monica. The food was great and they had a decent kids menu. Service was good and there was an easy going atmosphere which meant we could relax with our two kids. A good spot to find!

We only tried the cookies here. They are amazing. There are several kinds. The s'more and chocolate chip were my favorites. They are large enough to share, but you will not want to. There are several bakery items to choose from, but they do run out. You can also grab a hot or cold drink here. There is not much... 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.
