Carbon Beach Treat
Great place for a Sunday Brunch with an Ocean view. Food is OK to moderate the service is not polished enough but OK. Fit, for mostly tourists but some locals later in the day.

This dining experience was
This dining experience was wonderful; even though it rained on the patio during our Easter brunch. We found a nice cozy place by the fireplace & finished our dessert. For the prix fixe menu I had the anything but traditional deviled eggs, eggs benedict and the spicy chocolate cake. Everything was delicious but the beauty of the ocean & the service are the standouts.

The outside view was great.
The outside view was great. Breakfast was good but not anything special other than the eggs Benedict over crab cakes. Real potatoes and authentic cooking was expected. The mimosas were good but $16 a mimosa is alot to charge.
It was all about the view for me.

My favorite restaurant in Malibu
I do my best to dine here at least every quarter............. the view is unaparalled, as it sits on the water. The service is GREAT, the valet parking is QUICK and the food is well proportioned and doesn't cost a fortune. Where you can get pricey is on the alcohol.... the drinks are not inexpensive. I think I paid $15 for a mimosa... really, half orange juice and half chamagne? A little overpriced for me..... but it won't keep me from going back next quarer. I have been going here for 5 years............ it's the best.

We very much enjoyed the scenic
We very much enjoyed the scenic view with dinner. Traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway coming up from the Venice Beach area on a Saturday night was a challenge (an hour for the 13 mile drive).Parking options include valets, but the beach parking lot adjacent to the restaurant had ample vacancies for $10. The bonus was the sighting of several dolphins and a whale not far from shore. The food was delicious w/conservative portions and the tab for two (appetizers,1 drink each, entrees, and desserts) was $155. The chill of the ocean breeze on the deck in mid-April deterred us from lingering, despite the heaters provided. Some local patrons at a nearby table proclaimed this the best restaurant of its kind in the area.

Quality of steaks could be improved, but food mostly good, if a little pricey. Location is A+

A friend recommended the Carbon
A friend recommended the Carbon Beach club for a post-graduation brunch and we were very pleased with our decision. We were seated outside and the views were amazing. The environment was very relaxing and we had a wonderful brunch. We will definitely come back.

Lunch with a view....
Always good, can not beat the view. Always someone famous eating next to you... Malibu needs this place to stay. Will go back from time to time...

This is a gem among gems! Panoramic views from both the outdoor patio. Service is excellent, ambience peaceful. After all this is Malibu, with the gorgeous pacific in front of you.
I took 3 people who all had driven by but never stopped to go in. They were all surprised and delighted to be introduced to this special experience.

Locals should LOVE it
We've eaten at just about every place in Malibu, and we just weren't expecting that the most obvious place - a HOTEL restaurant - would have the best food - but it did! Great dinner - the best salmon and lobster - great staff - We definitely recommend it. I don't know much about the rooms, but try a romantic dinner here - you'll be glad.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I fell in love with this place. Having dinner outside is absolutely very romantic, I think I loved this place more for the view than for the food. The food was pretty good and the service was great but one of things I will always remember is being outside having dinner with the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks. Great place for a special ocassion

Amazing ocean view, good food
I've been here twice - after my first time, I knew I would return on my next visit to Malibu. I did, and wasn't disappointed! The view is great and the food and staff are very nice as well. My favorite place for lunch in the area.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely relaxing lunch
Nothing better then sitting over the ocean enjoying the view while eating a yummy lunch and getting excellent service. The location cannot be beat. The menu is limited but everything I have eaten so far has been excellent. My husband and I love this place. Just beautiful and romantic.

Casual but Chic
A great place to enjoy ocean view and casual meal. Sophisticated but not stuffy. Feels like a well kept secret.

Carbon Beach Club Miscues
The food is outstanding. Service - attentive, friendly. But when you pay a lot of money to dine out, you expect optimal service. It wasn't.
The waitress served us bottled water in a plastic Fiji bottle. A glass carafe maybe? The busboy asked to take my plate before my date was through eating. What's the rush! And when she asked him to box her steak, he did it without the sides or sauce left on the plate. A slab of meat sitting in a plastic container. Lastly, I brought a cake to celebrate my date's bday. The server did a wonderful job presenting it. In gratitude, I told her to take a slice for herself. We opened the cake later. Half the cake was gone; she had more than we did. We were more amused than annoyed. But come on!

We loved this restaurant.
We loved this restaurant. It happened to be perfect weather for our lunch, and we had the table right on the w ater with glass around so to block the little wind. We loved it, and its a gem!!

Carbon Beach Club is Amazing!
Carbon Beach Club Restaurant is a gem. If you are looking for a great restaurant with incredible views and equally incredible food, come here. But, don't just wait for a special occasion. I've been here for both a romantic dinner with my husband and a business dinner with out-of-town colleagues. it's great for both. Their fish dishes are amazing, but so are their veggies dishes made with locally grown vegetables. The pace of dinner was perfect. No rush. The staff makes you feel special and they do not try to rush you. It gives you time to enjoy the ocean as the waves crash below you.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are locals. This is my favorite local gem. I hate for too many people to find out about it, because it's so special. The view is amazing, the food is worth the money, the service is good, can't say enough.

Sea. Food. Love.
Carbon Beach Club at the Malibu Beach Inn. Just this side of Malibu Pier... and just this side of heaven. Enjoy lunch or brunch on the oceanfront deck. Then walk off the calories along the platinum sands of Carbon Beach. See how the other 0.000001% lives. If you're on either side of high tide, the beach gets impassable. The alternate route on the Pier is the next best thing. And offers excellent views of the hills and canyons above the coastline, all the way to Santa Monica and Palos Verde on a clear day. P.S. Feeling spendy? Stay the night in David Geffen's uber-fab sand castle.

Regal devant le Pacifique
Nous avons fait notre brunch du samedi au Carbon Beach Club. Ambiance chic et classe, et vue formidable sur le Pacifique.
Très bon plats, à des tarifs relativement légers.
Très bonne adresse
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend and I saw this place from the beach once, and ever since enjoy lunch here when we're in Malibu. The outdoor seating for the restaurant is on a small patio extending over the sand, with the ocean below. Service was wonderful - we mainly just wanted to talk and visit and we were never rushed. Were able to just enjoy the setting and each other.
Very diverse menu and some excellent options, from simple soup to pricey (for lunch) fish. Everything we've had here has been very good or exceptional.
Upscale atmosphere so appropriate to dress nicely, but casual. Valet parking, if you like.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the perfect place to go on a romantic, dinner-date. The waiters were very nice and the food was delicious! I loved the view of the ocean and I just love everything about this place!

Best Views in Malibu!
But that's not the reason to eat here---the great food is! We had a simple brunch--an amazing omelette and the always-just right lobster club. Service was spot on, as it always is. A relaxing lunch, with a great view, and truly special food. Carbon Beach Club Restaurant is our favorite in Malibu (sorry, Geoffrey's, you're our second favorite now!!).
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fast becoming one of our favorite dining spots in LA! We are locals yet feel like we're on vacation every time we eat here. Try to sit on the deck if you can. Just wonderful!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I were looking for a "local escape" for the evening, and we found it at the Carbon Beach Club. The setting was spectacular. We sat outside at a table perched right over the beach, with the sound of the waves providing the background music for the evening. The food was delicious - hummus appetizer, fruit heirloom tomato salad, lamb loin, chicken, etc. were all very flavorful and cooked to perfection. The food was accompanied by an excellent Cabernet that was very reasonably priced.
Everything is a la carte and nothing is inexpensive, so you will easily drop $150 per person. But, it was so worth it. Beautiful view, romantic setting, great service, and delicious food. What else could you ask for?
We'l be back.

Wonderful way to enjoy the coast
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch here overlooking the ocean & watching the people enjoying themselves in & out of the water. Our server was very nice & helpful, while the food was great. Each of us enjoyed different dishes & each said ours was among the best we'd had of that entree. We recommend this as a great way to do brunch in a very relaxing & picturesque setting.

LA's best, intimate, ocean-front
LA's best, intimate, ocean-front dining experience. Literally over the sand.

Boyfriend was in town, and my boss suggested Malibu Beach Inn for brunch. We came half an hour early and were promptly accommodated at a lovely table on their deck. The sky was grey, but the ocean was still beautiful. The ambiance was peaceful, everyone just enjoying their Saturday with friends and family. Although there were plenty of people around, it felt like a very private dining experience. My Bloody Mary and Tuna Tartar was excellent, and the service was very attentive.

perfect for a warm summer nite. dine on a deck hanging 8
feet above the ocean. food is good not great but it doesn't matter because
the site is spectacular. had a great time with friends

Dine with the Pacific Ocean.
Sit back with the waves of the Pacific Ocean as you relax with great service & food.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
One can immediately relax after seated with the relaxing view and sound of the waves complemented by the fine service and food.

Location, Location, Location!
Come here for the perfect setting, not for the food. On a beautiful day there is no better spot than the Inn's small outdoor terrace. The setting and friendly service trump the average food.

A day at the beach
This place is a charming on the water location. You can't get any closer to the ocean than this. The food is excellent and the service as well. This is a great getaway restaurant for lunch, brunch or a late night dinner. The hotel is very small but cozy. Good celebrity sightings as well. Definitely a repeat. its Malibu afterall!

KISS THIS RATING 1 out 5
Officially rated 4 Kisses out of 5
Friends or family this place is tops in ocean view restaurants with a lobby thats right out of your imagination when you think charming.
The Malibu Beach in is outstanding in service and food. Fresh fruits o salt water taffy is gifted when arriving or departing. Good looking & knowledgeable staff. ANything on the menu is good but the fresh smoothies are a must.
Great place to get away for the weekend too

Best Malibu Brunch
We're regulars, I guess! Four for brunch--crab eggs benedict was amazing, great crab cakes and just the right amount of hollandaise--not drowning in it like most places offer up. Lobster club was wonderful and bloody marys as good or better than any other--and when you ask for "spicy" you'll get "spicy", really good. A sunny day under umbrellas overlooking the beach, great food, terrific service, and good friends, the perfect Sunday afternoon.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice to sit by the fireplace have dinner and a glass of wine and see the ocean
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary here and it e as the perfect spot. My wife said she truly felt special because we made ut all the way to malibu from Diamond bar on a wednesday and it was well worth it. We'll definitely be back again!

YOU CAN'T BEAT THE VIEW! LOVELY PLACE TO HAVE BRUNCH AND JUST RELAX AND ENJOY THE GREAT FOOD!

A gem in Malibu!
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!

Gem on the beachfront
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.

Perfect for a romantic date
Food was pretty good but the view and the atmosphere was just to die for!! Would def recommend this place for a romantic date or a special celebration. Best time to go is when the sunsets! Just beautiful!

Very personal service and excellent food. I chose this restaurant for my birthday and was not disappointed.
