Food was great. Service was good. Sat outside. Notably too many ill mannered dogs. Not the dogs fault. Owners put dogs in a situation where they were scared because of the traffic and people in an unfamiliar setting.

As usual, having a frequent Sunday breakfast/brunch was awesome! No complaints ever... except it would be great if the condo building owners would allow Lettuce Entertain You restuarant M Street Kitchen to install some more permanent patio sunshades.

The bartender didn’t know how to make a specifc from that was requested. Instead of asking he made it, we tried I‎t, thought I‎t was gross, sent I‎t back for a new one. They dumped the original drink in half into another cup and added more beer and brought it back to the table.

Terrible.

Tortilla chips were stale.

Seriously bad. Will never go back.

Food was average nothing really wrong just not standout but the lighting was very poor, we had to get our phones out to read the menu and see the food, even the wait staff had to do the same to show someone on the next table what was what on the menu.

Was meeting a friend from out of town so needed to find a place not to far from LAX that took reservation for breakfast. 10Am was right before the rush but some how our server was slow and took ordered fro m 2 tables that sat down after us, and we had to finally ask for a manager to get service. Wasn't until it was time to pay and leave a tip that he started to be friendly. I order the single banana pancake , which didn't have much banana flavor, probably because they doint use ripe bananas. Candied Bacoin was good as well as the rest of the food.

The food was good, but we waited an hour for it from the time we ordered. We did see other diners come, order, eat, and leave while we waited, so not everyone had this experience. We alerted the management and they did try to help by bringing us some fruit and granola while we waited, but it didn't make up for the hour wait.

I ordered a coffee with almond milk. They brought out the coffee minus the milk. Waited 10 minutes before I could get the servers attention which at that point requested the milk again. 6 minutes later I feel finally received it and my coffee was cold

Really loved our meal. The bloody Mary and honey margarita were delicious accompaniments. I loved the option to buy 1 perfect pancake so I could have that with my eggs and bacon. Our waiter - Ezekiel Elliot - look alike was attentive and friendly. Definitely worth checking this spot out

Babou & I have been eating here ~ 5 years. M Street Kitchen has been our favorite go-to eatery whenever we come to Santa Monica or the Palisades. The food preparation has been consistent and almost always been very tasty :). Though I am not much of an imbiber, an IPA on a hot sunny day does hit the spot!

Went for a business lunch, and the food was outstanding. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked and my co-worker had the breakfast and was blown away by the English muffin, the best he has ever had! The best part was ordering cookies to go and on the way back to the office, we were astonished how extremely moist and so good they were. The service was profound and very welcoming, we will surely come back to dine!

Dinner with party of 4 plus infant. Gracious and friendly service, although slightly inattentive towards the end of the meal. Food was delicious and great cocktail (Honey Margarita). Only complaint is that we asked for a non-spicy dish selection for a breastfeeding mom and the wood grilled mahi still came out with considerable heat. Overall great experience. Definitely recommend if you are in the area. Also has a great but busy brunch.
