Massilia is a Marseille-inspired brasserie with culinary influences from the South of France, Italy, Spain and Morocco.

WE ARE OPEN FOR DINING ON OUR BEAUTIFUL PATIO AND WE ARE FOLLOWING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND CDC GUIDELINES.

With a beautiful recessed patio, the all-day restaurant and bar conveys the atmosphere of those lively French eateries;
a buoyant neighborhood hub by day (offering coffee drinks, croissants, and egg dishes in the morning, pita sandwiches and classic bistro items such as steak-frites for lunch) to a festive ambiance at night around dishes such as homemade pasta, gambas au pastis, eight-hour braised lamb, and Moroccan tajine.

The unique crafted cocktail program is based around spirits from the South of France and Italy, with a dedicated Negroni menu, as well as an extensive selection of Amari and French brandies.

Massilia is open every day at 7:00am.

One of my favorite go to places in Santa Monica: great food and cocktails, very friendly staff, nice music in the background. 24 hour parking structure is right across the street. I highly recommend for lunch or dinner with friends. And yes, make a. reservation.

So disappointing. This restaurant used to be good. The wine and atmosphere were great but honestly the food was not good. Go somewhere else.

It’s really noisy because of the traffic on second street. Food is good. I would prefer table service rather than ordering at the counter. Maybe that will change some day. Otherwise, I’ve been twice and would go back again.

Very nice and I will go again but probably not order the same entrée. It lacked a little flavor; it was the butternut squash and kale rigatoni. But the rest of the meal, drinks and the overall experience were great.

The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was very good. We had Branzino, lamb shanks and tagliatelle with morilles. Meatballs app was spicy and good. The wine list was really good. Choices you don’t often see. The only downside is the ambiance and noise level. Feels like you eating in the middle of the street but I guess that is true for most restaurants in the area.

Yummy food, nicely presented, and generous portions. Our group had the Bolognese, the
brioche french toast with crispy bacon, the buckwheat pancakes, and the Socca breakfast pizza. All enjoyable....we were a happy and well-fed group!
Our waiter was exceptional, very attentive, great attitude, and caring in his approach.

We'll definitely be back!

We came expecting fine dining and we sat through dinner with music so loud that we had to practically yell at one another in order to carry on a conversation. The food and service were very good, but the ear-crashing sound ambience interfered with what might have been an enjoyable dining experience. A restaurant's reputation should be based on its food and service and not how hip they are trying or be.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed upon my second visit to this restaurant. First off, they did not want to honor our reservation for outside. I told them that I had put the request in the reservation and that our party did not feel comfortable sitting inside due to Covid. The hostess stated that sitting outside is only a request and cannot be guaranteed. They did finally seat us outside about 35-40 minutes after our reservation time. The food was also not as good as I remember it. The lamb was dry. However, the burrata with dried fruit and prosciutto was delicious. With all the great restaurants in LA, I will not be returning.

Casual late afternoon/early evening small plates & drinks. Everything was absolutely delicious, and we had quite a few items - ratatouille, burrata, calamari, salmon flat bread, & grilled broccolini... oh, and a side of french fries!! Service was timely, friendly and attentive... we really appreciated the excellent service!!
