Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful place to stay, calm and relaxing. Staff were outstanding, great service and great food. A genuinely relaxing place to stay."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "This place has all of the right elements, but they have to get the food right. The service was great - the food was sadly overpriced and underwhelming. They made some changes to the menu and it seemed very heavy for lunch. I have had great experiences in the past, but this one left me wanting more in terms of the selection and execution."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "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 at this beautiful spot six months ago when our reservation was made, on the same day, by a friend of the management. We got a table on the deck, had fantastic service and the food was outstanding. This time we booked two months in advance through Open Table and requested an outdoor table. We called to reconfirm shortly before our reservation and were told that no outdoor tables were available. Imagine our surprise when we arrived and only one table on the deck was taken. After a conversation explaining our friend's connection to the restaurant a table became available. During our entire meal outdoor tables were available. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and professional. The food was fresh, not as good as at our last visit."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "How rare to have a perfect ocean view and great food in the same place."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "You can't beat the location & view! Unfortunately that maybe why the service is lacking... As for the menu a bit surprised being in California where fresh products are everywhere the menu had very limited choices... I will try again. Better second time around :)"

  • "The best ocean view along PCH! The food selection, presentation and quality are tops! Service is attentive. Beautiful dining room with tons of light and perfect views. Great outdoor deck for dining on the water. Easy valet parking for both arrival and departure."

  • "A rare combination of great food and a spectacular view."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "It's a beautiful restaurant. The food is okay, but not up to the prices charged. The service could also improve along with losing just a touch of theatrical snobbery. The valet said to make sure that his ticket was stamped. Turns out I paid 7$ instead of $9. Should be free considering the high meal prices."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Want to enjoy a good meal and beautiful view...would definitely recommend dining here. Have only dined here for lunch..and would highly recommend it. We loved the quinoa salad with shrimp...and it was a little cool this day so they had blankets on the chairs if you needed it. Look forward to going back!"

  • "What a gem, you could be anywhere in the world with such a scenic ocean view. Excellent food, great ambiance, small and romantic, excellent service, a must to sit on the Patio, with waves crashing a few feet away. Magnificent spot for lunch."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Had pre-dinner drinks here at sunset. Great view, perfect location, ok cocktail s. We took a look at the menu and decided to leave because frankly we couldn't find anything to order off this very odd menu that mixed targines with sushi with steaks. Also no fresh fish? Go figure? You could hang a line off the balcony into the pacific! I suppose this place is not about the food, more about the scene."

  • "Had breakfast reservations...table was ready when we arrived...service was right on for champagne and we enjoyed a great meal overlooking the Pacific Ocean...."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Such a nice spot to dine at sunset on the patio if you can make it there by then. We didn't get to the restaurant until 6:30pm but fortunately it was a full moon that night. We had a perfect view of the moon from a table outside. They have a nice patio and on a warm night, the outside patio is the way to go. The food was delicious and a couple bottles of wine that were reasonably priced. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli in a balsamic sauce. It was so good! I thought it would be just ravioli's but was pleasantly surprised! The ravioli was served over squash, brussel sprouts and little pearl onions. What a delicious dish! I highly recommend this place for great food, wine and a beautiful view."

  • "What a find and terrific experience. My cousin had gone there 2 months ago and we have been meaning to try this spot, but it beat all my expectations. It was a little slow the night we went, but all the better for us as we were bathed in service and had a very quiet dinner with our friends. The view is killer, and the porch was where most people choose, but it was slightly chilly so we dined inside. All the choices were excellent. Salad and soups were very tasty, I had short ribs which were tender and tasty, my wife had a great burger served with a glass of wine, our friends enjoyed swordfish and shrimp pasta. Portions were plentiful. My only negative was there seemed to be over salting and seasonings."

  • "A lovely setting overlooking the beach at Malibu. Small, intimate, romantic. Excellent food although a limited menu. Not touristy at all. The lobster club sandwich was fantastic."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Crab Benedict was delicious, but without English Muffin. Mango chicken sausage tasty.....steel cut oatmeal very good when cooked correctly.....The view is spectacular on the ocean and romantic at night with candles on ocean..by day, fire pit and warmers when necessary and even blankets are provided. The Manager is very efficient."

  • "We dined here for New Year's Eve and had the prix fixe menu. Food was delicious and service was good."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have been here many times and everything was great, however they changed the normal menus to a horrible one on New Year's Eve lunch. They were not accomadating in any way. We left without eating"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The four of us sat on the outdoor patio and we could hear the waves crashing up over the rocks. The heaters were on and it was very comfortable and beautiful. An ideal setting! But neither the food nor the service matched up. I don't mind overpaying if the food is good. It was not. There are plenty of better restaurants nearby."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "We were running late with a guest list changing from two to four which became three at the last moment. On Christmas Day yet. No one at the restaurant batted an eye, they even seemed surprised I called a second time to tell them we were running even later than I'd said on my first call. When we got there the showed us right to a seat on the deck at the rail overlooking Malibu Lagoon. One guest was reminded of a restaurant on the coast of Peru. An excellent and extensive wine list, reasonable portions of artfully presented gourmet food . . . "best Christmas ever," our guests volunteered."

  • "We spent a lovely Xmas Eve sipping champagne and enjoying spectacular view from patio beach side dining room. Dinner was a set prix fixe menu ... My guests would have liked more options . . . But my venison was outstanding. Made for a unique and memorable holiday."

  • "This is the ideal place for lunch to enjoy one of the most beautiful scenic view in Malibu. The food is a great combination of Californian and European. I could eat there everyday!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "I stayed at the Malibu Beach Inn for 6 days, and one would never have to leave the premises to eat. The breakfast menu is quite substantial and tasty, with plenty of healthy choices available. Lunch and dinner choices are scrumptious. The service was great, as was the ambience. Basically the kitchen provides food from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. A very small bar/lounge area. The hotel service overall is fantastic."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "Located at the Malibu Beach Inn, this is a beautiful spot for sunset cocktails and a snack. The dinner menu is nothing original and smacks of being a hotel restaurant. The spinach salad was fresh and crisp but the blue cheese dressing was a snooze. The duck was way overcooked, again, figuring we were tourists the waiter never bothered to ask whether I'd prefer it rare or medium vs the very well done. Cream of chicken soup was fine, as was the NY steak, nothing outstanding. Food prices are fairly average, high for some things, cocktails are way overpriced. Still an enjoyable evening on the water with a view that can't be beat."

  • "Literally perched above the beach, listening to waves breaking on the rocks below, and with the famed Malibu Pier a stones throw away, it doesn't get any better than this setting. And the food and service matched the elegance of the location. We were exceptionally pleased."

  • "The CBC (The Dining Room) has a very nice Terrace above the Carbon Beach, especially for dinner the ambience is breath-taking! The service is professional and consults the guests by their choice of their meal. A signature dish of the restaurants chef are the Asian inspired short ribs. Finally I can recommend another signature dish, the CBC deep dish chocolate cookie topped with fresh vanilla ice, that melts on the fresh baked cookie! We went to the CBC for a birthday dinner and the birthday girl was totally stoked from the view and the awesome food. If I'm sooner or later again in this area, I will definitely visit the CBC again. It was a great pleasure to dine there!"
