Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I ate here early on a Friday night. Once we got through the traffic (we were 20 minutes late) we were seated in the outdoor patio, which I had requested. For the rest of the meal we could hardly take our eyes off the scenery as we watched the sun set. The service was excellent and the food quite acceptable. We stuck to sea food but had trouble finding a white wine dry enough for our tastes. To their credit we were asked if we wanted to taste wines before ordering them and finally settled for a full body Pinot. There was a nice choice of desserts and the coffee was quite good. Overall the view made the dinner a bit less important and we certainly plan to return"

  • "CBC has it all: good food, cozy atmosphere, breathtaking beach view and excellent service. I had been a number of times with friends for lunch, but had yet to try the dinner scene. My husband and I went most recently for our wedding anniversary. It was great: just what we wanted for a nice, romantic low-key celebration. The staff was very accommodating and attentive and our waitress, Grace, was excellent. We will go back soon!"

  • "We dined here twice during a Malibu stay. During both dining experiences, we were seated on the outdoor patio, which provides the most amazing view of Millionaire's Beach. Waves are crashing right below the patio and if you're as lucky as we were, you might even see some marine life. The owners have considered every aspect of the restaurant - oversized umbrellas for shade, heat lamps for warmth and they even provide embroidered blankets for chilly ocean breezes. The food was spectacular and wonderfully presented. We very much enjoyed the Flatbread and Brew promotion that was offered during our visit. They have a lounge menu in the afternoon and the fried calamari was the best I have ever eaten. The staff was friendly and pleasant."

  • "My wife and I tried this restaurant for her birthday on Thursday night. Up one arriving, we were excited because of the location and layout. We had a table on the patio overlooking the beach. The menu was nice, good variety. I ordered water with lemon wedges for my drink. The lemons didn't come until the third reminder. They messed up the order three times, brought an extra appetizer, forgot my wife's side for her entree and didn't do the birthday candle in the dessert after I had specified in the reservation and they greeted us with happy birthday wishes at the desk. Not what I would expect for a 180.00 dinner. Food was great."

Our server was friendly and never made us feel rushed, always came to the table with a smile and friendly words, He made our experience to enjoyable. I was there with my 85 and 86 years young parents and they loved the whole day. Thank you"

  • "I love coming here. The view on the deck is amazing and the food is consistently excellent. In the evenings they provide blankets for those who are cold. - Make sure you ask for the deck. It is a unforgettable view. I have not been unimpressed with any meal they have brought out. I usually do their special for the day."

  • "One of our party had scallops with heritage tomatoes, two of us had crab cakes. We also had roasted corn and sweet potato fries sides. Dessert was Tres Leche cake. All the food was excellent. Service was great. On a patio right above the breakers. Great view of the pier. Kind of pricey, but everything done so nicely!"

  • "The food was delicious. Served hot and the portions were very generous. I've eaten dinner here a few years ago and was truly impressed with the menu, choices and presentation. Such a beautiful setting especially in summer. Prices are similar to other high end restaurants."

  • "I'm a local and hate giving such a great review because it may make it tougher to get a table, but this is the perfect adult eating and drinking experience in Malibu. Great views, great food, and great service and intimate and romantic yet fun with friends."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I have been going to this restaurant for a few years and it's one of my favorites. Great service and can't beat the view. I do have to say that they changed the menu since last time I was there and the food isn't as good. They have similar menu items as before but seems like they tweaked them a bit and not for the better. The other people I was with felt the same way..."

  • "Not only is the view one of the best in Los Angeles, the food is to die for. My clam chowder was top notch. It was served in a fresh and tasty bread bowl with clams still in their shells. Our main course was pasta with ribs. A+ as well."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The restaurant was beautiful, peaceful and romantic. We could not find a better ocean ambiance with an intimate setting. The menu, drinks, food and service was exceptional. We have already told our friends who live in Malibu, Westlake, Topanga and Calabasas about our dining experience. We will be going back soon for a birthday celebration! The lamb tagine and bone-in-filet were excellent."

  • "Always an amazing experience from the service, to the food, and the view….The Bloody Marys are so tasty, with just the right amount of spicy. Every dish is delicious. Even the french fries are done perfectly. The Lobster club is packed with perfectly done, tender lobster. I just ate at the Ivy and had over done, dry Lobster…yuck. I could sit here for an entire day and sip bloody marts, if not for the fact that I need to drive back to Santa Monica at some point. Beautiful."

  • "Tough call: amazing view, comfortable seating, excellent menu options, and the waitstaff was excellent (we had Michelle). That said, the host/hostess situation was a total mess. They lost our reservation then said we couldn't have a nicer table since we didn't have a reservation (though I had an email from OpenTable confirming our reservation). Nothing on Open Table said anything about not getting brunch until 11 and our rez was for 10:45 and we were pressured to order from the breakfast menu since it was not yet 11. But how were we to know before traveling to Malibu?? They turne people away but then had lots of open tables. Keep in mind the food and drinks are expensive for what they are. But, the view makes the prices worth it. "

  • "I almost don't want to tell people about this lovely restaurant in the Malibu Beach Inn, because it will make it harder to get a table. But this restaurant on the water with a lovely view of the ocean is perfect no matter what inside or outside table you sit at. The food is delicious and not your ordinary salads and sandwiches. Parking is validated with lunch (still costs $7), but lunch is as good as Nobu down the road and half the price. Shh, keep it a secret. :-)"

  • "Though the food was quite good the staff, courteous and efficient, and the scenery, waves and whales, made the evening! Only noise we heard was the waves! Was a pleasure to dine at Carbon Beach Club Restaurant!"

  • "Very good burgers, especially the lobster one! Very beautiful view!"

  • "You come here for the view, but the food is actually very good. We had brunch, huevos rancheros, delicious. We ordered the buckwheat waffle, our attempts of being "healthy." It was very good as well. It is over priced as expected but the view is seriously ridiculous. The check and valet were definitely worth it."

  • "Fantastic location. Wife's chicken was dry. My first steak sent back because it was Medium, not Med Rare. Second steak too rare. Had to find a waiter to send the first one back, and nobody asked about the 2nd. Got frustrated and ate around the edges. Hate paying $45 for a steak that I can cook better. No manager inquired, either. But, it is a beautiful spot and will try it again."

  • "The view at Carbon Beach Club Restaurant in the Malibu Beach Inn is the BEST in Malibu. You are literally sitting right over the beach with big gorgeous rocks and the ocean waves crashing underneath you. The outdoor dining here is much more romantic and beautiful than Nobu or Nikita (although both of those are still amazing) because its a much smaller intemdiate venue. Great spot for a romantic sunset dinner or small group. Bring your date or bring your parents here when they are visiting. The food was also really delicious. Great seafood, steaks, veggies. All-around excellent menu and fine dining experience. They have a lot of specials throughout the week with wine/beer pairings. Service was excellent. Wine list was great. WONDERFUL!"

  • "Great spot to soak up the ocean views, the outdoor terrace literally hangs over the sand, couldn't be more idyllic for a special treat. Food was outstanding, highly recommend the eggs benedict with salmon. Servers are attentive and polite. Will definitely be back!"

  • "We selected this restaurant for the location in the property (Malibu Beach Inn) where we were spending the night. The view was incredible. The server was pleasant but not as attentive as one would generally expect from this type of establishment. They did not accommodate my husband's simple dietary restrictions as we would have anticipated for a restaurant of this caliber. The food was good-tasting but steaks a bit tough for a price tag of $38.00. Rolls were burnt and we felt as though they were a bit stingy in removing the basket from the table, requiring that we ask the server to return each time we needed additional."

  • "even if the food wasn't good (and it was), how can you not enjoy sitting outside right on the beach? The juevos ranchero was served in its own cast iron pan that kept it nice and warm. Shared the tuna tartare that was good as well."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Wow! This restaurant is such a treat! Food is delicious and your view is the ocean. This is one of the best views in Malibu. I definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "We booked this outdoor dining spot for Valentine's Day lunch since dinner out usually means, fixed menu, expensive, rushed and/or poor service. I had asked for an outdoor dining table. They had one, but it was unshaded. Actually the only two tables left that were both for parties of two. As a skin cancer survivor, I opted for indoors. Guess I needed to mention shade. Service was slow (which we had no issue with) but when we asked for bread, they said it only comes with dinner so it would take awhile (we had ordered salads). It was a long time coming and they charged us for 3 rolls. This is a very small hotel and restaurant (you mistake the front desk for the restaurant hostess area) so let the diner beware. Best for hotel guests."
