Went on Monday night given table quickly inside but very loud and slow to serve. Dark and hard to read menu would not recommend with children. Avocado toast lovely but beware as main courses don't come with much and any veg etc all charged extra. Run out of draught beer!! Had variety of mains and all well cooked and tasty.

The food is great! Drinks are artisanally handcrafted by skilled bartenders dressed to impress. Nice atmosphere reminds me of an old New York style bar.

Took our friend out for a birthday dinner, and The Misfit did not disappoint! Even on a Wednesday the place was hopping but our waitress was a dream and got us drinks and starters pronto. Very good selection of beer. Just beware that here a "side" of fries is enough for three!

Busy summer Saturday night in Santa Monica. We'd been traveling all day and were too cranky to endure a bad meal. Spotted Misfit reviews on trusty TripAdvisor and headed over there, scoring a table immediately thanks to someone else dropping off the wait list. Sat outside with a view of the water at the end of the street and plenty... More

We visited during happy hour so we got half price drinks. I had the sangria and Goodnight Emilie, both very good. The food was tasty but also on the pricy side. Our service was quick and friendly and the cookies at the end didn't hurt either!

Family of 5 looking for a good place to eat near the Santa Monica Pier. We walked into Misfit and got a table straight away despite it being very busy (and very loud). Overall we liked the food but erratic seasoning took away from the meal (for example the oven-roasted chicken was spoiled by the market greens being massively over-salted... More

We were greeted and welcomed into the Misfit for a family dinner. The children were offered a children's menu. We were served by Abby who was the perfect host. The portions are enormous opt for sharing! Wonderful experience, great menu, fabulous staff and delicious food – well worth a visit.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
