“Terrific spot!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went for lunch here after spending the morning at the wonderful Farmer's market nearby. What a great little restaurant. The prime rib nik niks (sliders) were excellent as was the fried chicken sandwich. The shredded kale and quinoa salad was wonderful as well. The locals recommended this place and they were right! Another plus--if you like vegan or vegetarian they will make it that way. Gluten free as well.

“Hurry up and enjoy the outstanding food”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Bustling, noisy, great energy. Most plates come minutes after you order. Waitresses have two objectives: keep you drinking then get you out. Not quiet unfriendly but far from welcoming. Still, I'd go back.

“Dining Inside a TARDIS”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The Misfit is aptly named. It doesn't fit into regimented descriptions of dining venues. It is part bar, part tapas dive, part restaurant, part bank. The food is very tasty and the service fun without being familiar. It is well worth a visit.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Wonderful place. We had lunch there and both the food and the service were great. Lots of different items to choose from. We can highly recommend the turkish muhammara on the dip plate!

“Amazing place to eat!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

I asked my phone to find me a restaurant close by. Boy I was not disappointed ! The atmosphere was buzzing, the food is amazing and the choice so extensive I could not make up my mind. We were given great service by Britney who recommended menu choices. Loads of choice under 20 dollars. Beware of the fries the portion is enormous. I would definitely recommend you pay them a visit when you next visit Santa Monica .
