Foursquare Tips

  • Finally a place in Santa Monica that delivers a nice/modern space, good drinks, and a contemporary menu at a fair price. I'll be a regular here
  • Lovely food lovely staff. Tortellini duo, arrancini and aged rib eye steak just yummy :)
  • Waiters are very knowledgeable and accommodating. Happy hour prices are also worth a look ($5 for select cocktails, beers and wines).
  • Fries, gnocchi, meatballs, and my bowl of grains was delicious. So glad to have that option!
  • Nothing here tastes bad, but there's nothing I'd want to eat again. Everything was fine but unremarkable.
  • This is a GREAT people watching place. Small food menu. More of a "snack" place & good for drinks. Their chicken wings are the best I've ever had! U can tell their food is house made. Loved it! B back
  • If you want a quite, chill place to drink near DTSM during the weekend, this is the spot.
  • Mood lighting got me in the mood (see pic for proof)
  • The steak salad was great!
  • The brunch and mimosas were just great. This is one of my new go to places in Santa Monica!
  • Joshua Van Dyk thinks the Burger is fantastic. I wish fries came with it but I ordered the truffle fries on the side....delicious! Great spot to eat while in Santa Monica.
  • Nice cocktails but they close early.
  • Kale salad and brussel sprouts are amazing!! A Must!
  • The grilled octopus and spaghetti di mare, just awesome!
  • Happy hour: 3PM-7PM daily. $5-$6 cocktails, $5 wine/beer of the day, $3-$8 appetizers.
  • So so happy hour. Limited selection of drinks and food.
  • The fried chicken sandwich is extremely delicious. And the fries are seasoned to perfection. Plenty of craft beers on tap as well. Great place!
  • The veal ragu is amazing. I've had it four times so far and I keep craving it every time I go back!
  • Good burger. Great alternative if misfit is too busy
  • Four words. Five dollar happy hour.
