What a pleasant and relatively
What a pleasant and relatively inexpensive meal. The food was surprisingly wonderful. The chicken with pecans was tender and perfectly prepared with ample sides. The restaurant has a huge patio area which is the summer, I imagine will be packed. Dessert options were hard to pick from but we loved our chocolate chip cookie sundae. Service was swift, not overbearing and the entire evening was very reasonably priced and parking is free behind the restaurant. We will be back.

This has to be the best kept
This has to be the best kept secret in all of LA because the food is amazing, the service professional and the crowds absent. LA does not know what it is missing. I have dined here now several times in the evening and the place is nearly empty. Starters recommend the wedge or artichoke dip. Chicken dishes are amazing, love the pecan crusted chicken and the marsala chicken over pasta is enough for 2. Had their campfireless somemore for dessert. Except that I love to roast marshmallows these were downright awesome. Perfect for the table to share. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent service & Lots of extras
I was pleasantly surprised by the service, the food and the ambiance. We were rushed for time. The waiter (or owner) was very accommodating, checking in with us a couple of times to make sure we didn't miss our next appointment. There was an ease, attentiveness and way we felt cared for. A bread with artichoke dip on the house for starters & house wine was very pleasant too. I had a half chicken with broccoli and caesar Salad, I tasted the crab cakes. All yummy. Not a real 'view' but the ambiance outside was charming and our UK business associate as very pleased with the WW2 and american history she found on the walls inside before we arrived. ALl in all I would recommend and definitely go back. Glad I found this place.

Pre Theater Dining
I have read about this restaurant and have never taken the time to dine there. We had tickets to see El Grande de Coca Cola at he Burton theater just down the road, so it was a very convenient location. We sat outside, and surprisingly no noise to speak of from the adjacent Santa Monica Airport. The menu was perfect for a light meal and wine before the show, there was something for everyone in our party of four. I would definitely go back.

Spitfire Grill is great place!
We've been going here for years and have always found their food and service to be really outstanding. The wine list continues to improve and the draft beer selection is also very good.

Good food with nice folks. The 'birthday dessert' for my mom was over-the-top wonderful: fresh baked huge cookie with ice cream and whipped cream. Way beyond the typical scoop of ice cream birthday sundae. Would definitely return.

We had more people attend our lunch than expected. Spitfire were more than accommodating. Our waitress was very sweet. I would definitely recommend Spitfire to all my friends!

First time dining at Spitfire and will definitely go back. My friends and I ordered the Salmon Pesto. The plates arrived heaping full of mashed potatoes and generous serving of salmon. I asked for a take away box before I dug in and removed half of the food to have another day. Servings very generous, delicious. One friend ordered the Apple Cobbler dish for dessert. I took a bite and it was delicious! The other friend had the cheesecake, offered me a piece which I was slow to take and before I knew it she had devoured it all. Server was attentive, restaurant is casual, and a definite return date will be planned.
