The best homemade English muffins in town!!
Great stop before the beach. Excellent food and service. Just right ambience. Really enjoyed.
Great food but hold on to your plate! While mid chew and holding toast, the waiters kept coming by to take our plates as if we were finished, even though it was obvious we were not finished. It was quite irritating.
The service was horrible and the food was equally as bad. The restaurant wasn't even busy and it took them 20 minutes to get us our drinks. When we asked for water, they brought one bottle of tap water for a party of 7 - just enough to fill 4 cups. Bad all the way around.
Everything was amazing!
Brought my 1 year old daughter to meet family for lunch. Staff was helpful and friendly and food was delicious. The child's plate for my daughter was healthy and delicious. And there was changing table in the ladies' room which is always a plus for us! We'll return.
Enjoyed it very much and loved the menu. Service was excellent and will be back!
The outside tables were so dirty and disgusting. Food had fallen in the cracks of the table and was dried up ... nearly every outside table was just like that. We had to ask to move inside. The menus has dried up food stuck to them as well. Also, my white wine was served to me warm
Breakfast....Great value - great food - great service - great atmosphere
We enjoy the food here, that it’s pet friendly & just a few doors down
The food is not as good as it has been in the past. I had the huevos rancheros and my husband had the egg white omelet, and the food was fine, but nothing to rave about. Also, the service was scattered--it took awhile to bring a first cup of coffee, they forgot the toast, and my food was tepid and I had to send it back. As a positive, I was glad that the server was able to bring a replacement dish quite quickly. Overall though, unfortunately, M Street is not the reliable, solid local place for breakfast that it used to be. :o(
Early breakfast on Sunday morning. It was delicious. Their Italian place next door is also amazing.
After passing this local hot spot without venturing in, I finally did for a brunch date. You want pancakes? I gotcha pancakes right here! When I ordered the full stack I didn't know a 3 layered cake would arrive -- figuratively. They are fluffy and so wide each one takes up the entire plate. Then you have a choice of fruit -- banana, strawberry, blueberry -- or you can go plain. Easily enough to split for two. The service was exceptional. I had made a reservation via Open Table and the hostess had a nice booth set up for me 10 minutes before the reservation time, and took the time to give me a tour of the outside patio seating just in case I wanted al fresco. If you sign up to the website they offer a $15 discount on your next visit. Check out the lunch and dinner menu at the website ... which will be my next visit.
The music was hard rock and not relaxing or energizing. Rather, it was loud and irritating and I couldn’t get relaxed even on my birthday. The service was especially slow. Food was not delivered at the same time.
We felt disappointed as we’ve dined here many times before.
Food is great, staff is friendly.
Love the interior.
I suggested your restaurant because
I had a good experience in the past. I came for breakfast with son and we had amazing blueberry pancakes, eggs, etc.
I brought my 83 year old mother and my 2 sisters and there were noticeable things that weren't up to par. .
My sister ordered a caesar salad and there was no dressing. We got an order of fries and they were cold. When we asked to have hot ones, we were given back ones with the same temperature. I shared the broccoli salad with my sister with chicken and the chicken was dry.
I think my mom's Ahi burger was ok. I was happy to remember this as a choice for lunch, but afterwards I felt apologetic for suggesting it. My son lives in Venice and he has had only good experiences so perhaps it was an off day. I hope this is beneficial.
Great spot for our Mother's Day breakfast! Our food was delicious, noise level was good (we could actually hear one another), and the service was attentive and timely. Would love to go for dinner next time!
Excellent experience at M street cafe for our second year in a row Mother’s day celebration brunch. Food, service and ambiance were all great. Excellent value. May go there again next year !
I love the outdoor, dog friendly dining! So few places can accommodate big dogs and have great food and atmosphere! And I love my points card.
Food was excellent. Drinks quenched our thirst and kids meal was good too. Awesome server too, really accommodated us!
I've been going to M Street Kitchen for a few years and the staff have always been super friendly and attentive. It's my favorite place to get brunch on the weekends since the food and drinks are consistently excellent and I always stop by their bakery for their amazing fresh baked goodies! All this AND I can bring my dog when I get a table on the outside patio...which is every time I go:)
Been coming here for years and I have to say they’ve been slipping quality-wise for some time. The menu keeps changing and not for the better. Ground beef replaces steak, Mahi-Mahi replaces sushi grade Ahi. Yet the price isn’t less. $22.95 for tacos? Um, no. On our last visit I ordered the Ahi tuna burger and fries. Both were delivered after a long wait time, and both were cold. Cold fries are not good. What’s the problem? My wife had the simple grilled Salmon, which was good but the waiter recommended side of cauliflower mac’n’cheese was runny and also luke warm. Not good. Maybe the M stands for mediocre.
M Street Kitchen in Santa Monica has been my go-to eatery for the last decade. It's always comfortable, like a 2nd home. My meal choices have been consistent & tasty. Thank you very much for your service ;)
I love M street because it's close and usually easy to walk in on the weekdays. I think it's a little overpriced for what you get (I paid $18 for cauliflower haha) but as long as you know that going in it's fine. Drinks are great as long as it's the right bartender working! All in all I wouldn't go here for a special occasion or anything like that but it is good if you live close by and want to grab some food and drinks.
Great service and vibe in the restaurant. I would definitely return.
Our waitress Cici was excellent the food was amazing . I am so glad it’s near where I live now !
I was truly disappointed with my experience at M Street kitchen. I've been several times and have always found it pretty good. I have mostly gone for the location and ambiance.
This time we got a great table outside and the ambiance was perfect. The food on the other hand was not. I ordered the avocado toast - a pretty standard item. When the food arrived I was surprised to find that the bread wasn't toasted and when I asked the waitress she said it was the type of bread they use that made it seem soft and untoasted. I was very disappointed as I was expecting a standard dish that was pretty subpar.
I would return to M Street Kitchen, but definitely would not recommend the avocado toast and would tell future diners to not expect the food to be amazing.
20 minute wait to give our order, 20 minutes more to be served, 20 minutes more to get the order right.
M Street never disappoints. We love it here.
Absolutely phenomenal food and beverages. Probably one of the best eggs benedict I’ve ever eaten. Love the ambiance and crisp air outdoor seating. Zero proof drinks are fun and refreshing. Can not wait to come back and try other menu items!
Staff attentive, food was hot
Really enjoyed my breakfast meeting at this charming establishment in Santa Monica just blocks from the Pacific Ocean. It has great customer-friendly features such as convenient street and garage parking; excellent, attentive yet unobtrusive service; attractive food selections; and affordable prices. Highly recommended for any type of gathering, casual or formal. So glad my friend recommended M Street Kitchen! Looking forward to a return trip next time I visit the west coast.
Avocado toast was delicious. Great ambiance for brunch.
Very tasty breakfast - got the avocado toast. Staff was friendly and personable. I would go back again. Thank you!
Great lunch, with less than attentive service during this visit. Very good avocado toast and a lovely patio seating area.
Always delivers! Nice vibe. Great service. Clean tasty food, well presented.
Superb brunch. Homemade English muffins put the delicious eggs Benedict over the top. Whether you like it or not, mule home some of those homemade cookies for later. Ridiculous!!!
Good place. Been several times. That's how you tell a good restaurant: Will you go back? YES!
Drinks weren’t very good
Great Ahi Tuna sandwich! I would highly recommend this entree!
