Food is amazing. Never a let down where the food is concerned. Wait staff is below average.

Leave Room for Dessert
Tasty on all levels - and leave room for their in-house baked desserts and pastry

Great food but extreme noisy. Tables are very close together and it is a young and boisterous crowd
Will go back for food and try sitting outside!

Enjoyed lunch with my son at M Street Kitchen this week. I look forward to trying more items from the menu. We shared the Bibb lettuce salad, a lovely combination of Bibb lettuce, golden and red beets, goat cheese all tossed in an excellent vinaigrette. I then had the pulled chicken, purple kale, and bean soup, which was overall delicious, though a bit salty. My son had one of the burgers (green chile) and fries....both of which were delicious.... We finished with one of M Street's notable chocolate chip cookies.

Great neighborhood spot
We love M Street, and have been there for happy hour on a number of occasions (kids eat free!). This trip, however, was a bit below par. After some confusion about our rezzie (another, larger, party of the same name at the same time), we were seated in the noisier, busier bar-and-high-tables area, despite requesting a booth on the rezzie. Less than ideal. The kitchen was slammed at that intersection of happy hour and regular evening crowd, so the meal was not as good as usual. Normally, M Street does a well-above-average job with the food, at reasonable prices. This night, it was just average. I think they need to step it up more during happy hour. But we will go back, since it's really a wonderful neighborhood spot and we do enjoy it.

food orders got mixed up but overall always yummy. went especially for easter brunch, last year seemed nicer ambiance, maybe because it was overcast people didn't come? hostesses were both really nice

Definitely not a quiet romantic
Definitely not a quiet romantic spot, but to people who appreciate a creative, well planned menu, executed to perfection with a great knowledgable staff this place is terrific. Source local foods. I've had the seared ahi on curry coconut rice as well as their take on an enchilada which is more like a large layer of manchago cheese pulled white meat and a curtido (Salvadorean slaw) over a tangy charred tomatillo salsa. Both are AMAZING!
Grab a cookie on the way out. They're ridiculous!

So outstanding we went back twice and each of us got the exact same thing! the Apple French Toast was RIDICULOUSLY good, as was the maple bacon and the hash browns with cheese and pico. Great great spot. A bit noisy inside but lovely aside from that. Good service.

This was my first time at M Street and am already looking forward to my next trip. The food and service was great. We had a group of 6 and were seated promptly.

Trendy and tasty
M Street was packed all night with a young to moderate crowd.
Service was great and food was delicious .
Definitely get an appetizer , I recommend the nachos.. And don't skip dessert!
The warm cookie is delicious. I already have my eye on what I want to order next time.
The burgers looked amazing.

Overall great experience. Excellent service and food. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. I'll be back.

Great Burgers and slightly overpriced, but what Lettuce Entertain you restaurant isn't?

Service is always friendly, never officious. Food is always good to great. Prices are reasonable.

Food and service was excellent! Was a bit noisy,but most restaurants are in Santa Monica.Needed more tv's for the guys. I only saw one,but this a great place!

Went with our 2.5yr old for dinner. (Previously we have been for brunch which was good so we thought we'd try dinner too)
We enjoyed happy hour drinks and had food from the main menu. Kids eat for free at that time! Which was good because the quesadilla we ordered for him was actually horrible. He ate some of our food instead. He can be a bit fussy but I tried it myself and it was not good! It was presented well tho with rice and veggies, I'm sure the rest of the kids menu was better, we will just order something else next time.
Service was friendly and efficient.
Our food was good (except the kids meal). We had a burger and a salad - fresh, tasty.
Fun vibe to the place.
Lots of famlies there at 6pm.

This place was close to our hotel and it was fantastic! When I am back in Santa Monica I will be back to M Street Kitchen!

good food - great prices!
For the amount of food and the level of deliciousness at M Street, the pricing of the menu and wine list can't be beat! Also, $5 sangria is a true steal!

Lovin' M Street
Just wanted to say keep up the good work. We've been here so many times and its always good, sometimes great. An awesome neighborhood restaurant. Wish we could keep the kids somewhere out of the main dining area though. But alas, thats the crowd in SM. No discipline. But I digress, great tacos, burgers and fried chicken. And get a choc-chip fleur de sel cookie to go - you'll be a happy camper in the car on the ride home.

Great food & Service, Bad Coffee
This is a great neighborhood place with a good menu and good execution on all dishes we've tried. Just avoid the coffee; they use a very burnt bean in both their espresso drinks and their drip coffee.

Afternoon Drinks -
I had a meeting over drinks, and it was a great time. Thank you!

Delicious for dinner too!
I had a rare ladies night out and a few of us in our party had only been there for breakfast or brunch, which has always been delicious. I have to say, dinner is too! I had the Miso Salmon which was cooked exactly the way I like it. A little crunch on the top and tender on the inside. Served over a bed of veggies in a light broth. I would definitely order it again. When asked, everyone in our party liked their dinner. One had the brussel sprout salad, another had the tacos and a third ordered some sushi and a salad. There was something for everyone!
Then, I had to stop in the bakery on the way out for a couple of oatmeal/apple cookies, simply devine!

It's a great neighborhood
It's a great neighborhood restaurant with good food. My only complaint is that the dinner menu does not have enough vegetarian entrees. The dinner menu should at least have a veggie burger and veggie quesadilla.

Great Happy Hour:
We stopped on the way to the concert on the pier. Enjoyed the wine, food and experience. The Hostess and Waitress were outstanding. Will definitely visit again.

Fun Vibe, Good Food
I've now been to M Street several times. Every time the food has been great. There are a lot of options -- from nachos and tacos to sushi and burgers -- there is something for everyone. The atmosphere is relaxed and the vibe on the patio is great for groups and families (whenever I've dined here, there have been lots of little kids).
I have to say however, that the start to my latest visit was a little disappointing. Even though I made a reservation, it took 15-20 minutes to be seated and parties who were walking up to the hostess without a reservation were seated ahead of my boyfriend and me. While it was a little annoying, we quickly got over it as our waitress, food, and overall experience was enjoyable!

I love this restaurant and take every opportunity to visit. I wish i could eat here everyday!!

One hickup in the order
The food and service were both exceptional, except for one dish...a burger seriously undercooked. But the service was all over it in a heartbeat and we all look forward to going back.

Food and service were excellent. Drinks and prices were a good value for the area. Eating outdoors enhances the experience.

I go to m street kitchen once in a while when I get the $20 off coupon in the mail. They do this a couple times a year. I like the restaurant and food though sometimes the service is slow when it's packed and sometimes loud children.

Food was great for dinner!
Food was great for dinner! The ahi tuna was amazing! The service though can be worked on. When an alcoholic beverage still has something in it, don't come by, pick it up and take it away without asking if I am done with it. If my plate still has food in it, don't just take it away. Ask if I am done with it.

Very good food, good service and nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Prefer outdoor dining, heaters available.

Nate an incredible server
Loved going to M-Street. It's such a good, all round restaurant. The people care and the food is very good. I love the scene.

Great for breakfast, lunch & coffee
Casa del Mar was packed, so walked over a block and half to this friendly California location for coffee& snack meeting. I had a smoothie and the guest had a tea. They had plenty of seats and despite before lunch hours, waitresses were attentative when needed but otherwise left us to our conversation without making move. Casual, professional, and friendly. Brunch on weekends get crowded so be aware.

Brussels Sprout Salad Turns Haters
Yes, brussels sprouts. The vegetable that no one is neutral about. Well, M Street Kitchen's brussels sprout salad will turn everyone who tastes it into an adoring fan. Made up from the leafs of the vegetable, torn off and tossed in with such other tasty additions you can't help but fall for it. Of course you'll also love the setting and the personal way the host and wait staff greet and take care of you. It can be a lunch experience you'll want to revisit again and again.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good lunch experience
Met some friends for lunch. Reservation process was easy and I had to up the number in my party a few days before and they didn't seem to mind. Lunch was quick enough for some of us to get back to work, they were very accommodating with bringing the check out right away.

came here with a group of girls i used to work with- they had never been here before but i think they will all be looking to come back soon. Food was good and service was excellent. really appreciated hostess seating me right away too. parking-even before 10 car be an issue so it would be helpful if valet was out a little earlier since undergraound parking fills up fast.

out for a fun evening
burgers are good, ahi tuna was good, edamamae, nachos were amazing. All the sides were good, especially the brussel sprouts.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food with a downhome spin
Tasty restaurant that is perfect all day. M street is one of my favorite brunch spots and dinner always hits the right spot from wanting fish tacos to fried chicken to burgers to salmon the chef has made a menu that appeals to my need for new tastes!
