M Street Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

This used to be a favorite breakfast spot for years. My latest visit the food was very mediocre to bad. The avocado toast had so much onion mixed in the avocado that it overpowered any other flavor. It didn't taste fresh. My friend said it was very disappointing and wondered why I had raved over the place and insisted we dine there. The candied bacon used to be divine. It has lost its magic.
Both the salmon bowl and the seared tuna ...
Both the salmon bowl and the seared tuna bowl were outstanding. Sat outside (on a date and inside was loud with many families) on a cold night. Only half the seats had heaters but hostess offered a blanket for my date, and then had to be reminded twice to get it. Server seemed new and a bit lost, was hard to find when needed. This is a good family restaurant with burgers that reminded me of some fun LEYE restaurants from my days in Chicago, but seems to want to be more upscale for couples and just needs a bit more attentive service to get there. Also there needs to be at least one appetizer without cilantro. Great restaurant but wrong occasion.

WELL.....go to M Street pretty consistently for their veggie burger (TO DIE FOR) and I order it protein style and a side salad and this waiter was the first EVER to offer things like cucumber, tomato, onion, etc., for my side salad. I was so happy (didn't know such options were even possible) that I spoke to the manager to acknowledge him. NICE! THANK YOU!

Wow! This place was hopping, even for a Saturday night. We asked our server if this was a usual Saturday night, and she said she'd never seen the place so busy. So clearly the service staff and kitchen were stressed, but I'm pleased to report we still had a wonderful meal. Things took a little longer to come out, but that was fine given how delicious everything was. M Street Kitchen remains a solid, reliable place to have a great, fun meal in Santa Monica!

Hamburger greasy and very tough. Fries good but also greasy. Chicken breast in sandwich dry and not tender. buns soft and fall apart. Cole slaw decent. Big decline in food quality since we were here last a few months ago. The restaurant looks dirty and unkempt. The men's room is tacky. The wait staff is excellent and deserving of a much better environment and kitchen. I won't be back.

The menu is uninspiring and does not include seasonal items and limited specials. The menu is boring and I wish there was something fresh about it. A fresh, new soup, new seafood dish or even a tasting platter of vegetables. It is a struggle to find something healthy since even the vegetables are covered in nuts, cheeses or heavy oils. The salads used to be plate sized but now are tiny and look unfulfilling. They keep the doors open which makes a nasty draft. M Street is not recommended.

Great brunch, very friendly and attentive service, we had a table for 2 - we were with a group of 10 but got hungry early and went out on our own.
After breakfast, we told them about it and then booked them a table for 8 (4 is the limit on OT I think)
Anyway, we were gone by the time they arrived but they reported back that everyone loved it.

Really went down hill. Used to be better than generic pub food. Sandwich buns could have been from McDonalds. Service was harried and not friendly. Seems like they want to be more of a sports bar with sports bar food than the semi-cool Santa Monica neighborhood placebit used to be. Problem is that the prices are way tool high for what they offer now. Very disappointing!

We've been eating here for years and the service has sadly gone downhill. It took 45 minutes to get our food & half of our breakfast was cold. The manager was very helpful, but it's been a bummer that we keep having experiences like this here. We keep coming back hoping that things will go back to how great it used to be. Here's hoping!

We had a great experience at M Street Kitchen. We were a few minutes late for our reservation due to heavy Santa Monica traffic but they were very accommodating and seated us right away. My son ate his huevos rancheros as if he hadn't eaten in days. My avocado toast was perfect - eggs poached to perfection and the housemade English muffin was good size. Others had a breakfast burrito and made them disappear! Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. A delicious brunch all around! I will definitely go back!

unfortunately our last experience at M St. kitchen was not a good one. This place has gone down. The food prices have gone up and the quality of the food has gone down. The waiter took forever to get to our table. He was rushing the whole time. it was my birthday and my husband told them there and no one did a thing about it or need anything special for me. Big bummer not planning on going back

As a member of the Lettuce Entertain You Frequent Diner Club, I received a text for $20 off any order over $30. I'd been to this restaurant 3-4 times before and went this past Monday at 7:45 having made reservations on Open Table. It didn't bother me that I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, but was then told by my gracious server, Joey, that they'd already run out of their fried chicken AND pork chop entrees. I then asked to speak to Richard Solis, the manager, to complain that they'd already run out of TWO entrees so early in the evening and asked him to extend the discount offer (since there was nothing else on the menu which appealed to me or my companion) which he refused to do.
Richard Solis has no business being a manager of any restaurant and had a very rude and unaccommodating attitude.

Our server was very slow, not attentive (and the restaurant was not busy). Part of the food came out soggy and when I addressed it to the waiter he was quick to bring out the same soggy dish, I then approached a manager who was just as bad and had an attitude. After they somewhat fixed the food the server didn't even come to check on us until we flagged him down for the check. Will not visit again.

Several friends from different towns decided to meet here for lunch to catch up during the holiday shopping. We were delighted with the place, able to talk, we all had the Bangkok Thai salad which we loved, if everything is that good, the menu is terrific. it was a bargain and
we will be back.
