Awesome food and a very popular happy hour - although no food only booze. Perfect for first dates or even a romantic dinner out! The interior is nicely dimmed and the food is fantastic. For being on 3rd streets is one of the best restaurants...More

I love to take people here when they are in Santa Monica; food is great, cocktails are respectable, and the people watching is fun. Great interior too.

I had a few hours to spare, so I headed out to see the sea. Unfortunately the fog had other ideas, so I went for lunch. I stopped off in The Misfit and had a mighty tasty burger and what seemed like a bucket load...More

Stopped in for lunch, the Kale and Quinoa Salad was excellent as well as the hand cut fries. Their pickles were insanely good. Definitely to be savoured slowly. The ambience is that of a speakeasy and it was beautiful, the postprandial cookie was definitely endearing.

Unique atmosphere in downtown Santa Monica. My nephew is still talking about the french dip sliders. Try the french press coffee.

First food stop of the trip. Well worth it! I had the cauliflower fried rice with fried egg. If you didn't know what it was made out of, you'd never know it wasn't actually rice. Very accommodating to food allergies and great housemade sangria!

A unique bar/restaurant with so many good food options! Go for the Mac & cheese, hamburger or Ahi Burger. If you order French fries, beware, you get enough for at least 4 people.

Nestled away in the downtown Santa Monica madness, is this old bank redone as savvy bar/restaurant, reviving the classic cocktails aka rob roys etc ... Happy hour is a must. Drinks & apps are well worth it

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
