Our server was Jasmine. She's amazing and I highly recommend sitting in her section. We had leek and bacon flatbread, the ox tail ragu and the poached halibut. Each dish was fantastic as it is every time we come. This is our favorite place to eat and the only place we want to come for date night. Wine prices are very reasonable and their list is excellent. Good wine, good food, good times More

Greets: We were greeted immediately and sat at our table. Beats: I don't recall the music, but it was loud in the restaurant. A lot of people were celebrating the holidays so there were many conversations. Eats: We enjoyed glassesof wine, the stuffed artichokes and calamari. We had table bread too. Our main courses were delicious. Two people ordered the short rib pasta, one scallop dish, and a pasta dish. Treats: We were too full for dessert. There were several that I wanted to try, but it can be next time. Cheats: Park by Burke Williams. The restaurant is located below. There is outdoor seating, but it was full. The wine shop next door used to not care a corkage fee. I am not sure about now. There is a tasting menu on Thursday nights. More

On this particularly day, our celebration for our 92 year old friend, the lunch service was great. And our friend was given a complimentary birthday cake which was a very nice touch. We went early for lunch which is good because as it becomes crowded the servers become very busy and can't be as attentive even though they work hard to do so. More

I live in Seal Beach, CA and Misto is a very good location for meeting several friends for lunch when I have to be in Torrance for an appointment. Great creative food at a reasonable price. The inside dining area is fairly small and generally great for good conversation. The outside patio is nice when the weather permits - which is most of the time. More

I had read about this place in one of the magazines in one of the offices while waiting for my appointment; decided to try it out last night. It is a bit pricy for the portion sizes and doesn't offer a lot of vegetarian options, which is why I'm holding back one star. Our server Angela was friendly and responsive and offered great suggestions on what we may like. The charred cauliflower is a must try even though the portion size is miniscule. The salsa is pretty good too though I can probably make better guacamole at home. Do leave some space for dessert which should be the bread pudding; that, unlike other menu items, is huge and delicious! I would recommend outdoor seating, preferably a table next to one of the fire heaters. More
