Looking for a restaurant in Santa Monica

Someone a while back recommended a restaurant in Santa Monica that had a very laid back atmosphere with good food. I think the name was the Loft but not certain. I know they have a lot of comfy couches on the patio. Not too much info but I would really like to know if a place like this exists and if so, is it worth a trip from the San Gabriel Valley food wise and where is it located exactly. Thanks for any help.

  1. The only place I can think of with couches on the patio is the old Cache which no longer exists. It's now 3110 and the food isn't what it was, not at all- although the couches are still there.

      They can still be found on the patio at the Viceroy at Pico and Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica in their "cabanas" as far as I know.

    2. Actually I goofed. I was no where close to the name. It's called the Bungalow. Anyone know of this place? Is it a dining destination or strictly a young party place?

        No food at the Bungalow, except on Sundays, as far as I know, and the Sunday menu is VERY limited (something along the lines of either a burger or a quesadilla). Of course you can always eat at their restaurant, Fig (which gets a lot of love on the L.A. board).

      2. Bungalow is a bar. They do have a menu, although it is extremely limited. It was just named on of the top 10 bars by LA Weekly:
