    Lovely setting if you are able to sit outside. It was raining the night we were there so we were seated at a nice window table in the dining room. However, the dining room lights were way too bright; it felt like we were eating in a cafeteria rather than a quaint restaurant. Dimming the lights and adding a candle to each table would greatly enhance the dining experience. Food was good. Service was excellent.

    Service was great. Setting was beautiful but the food was very average and aside from the crab legs and truffle fries which we had as appetizers and were delicious — the entrees were mediocre at best— the salmon was fishy and the paella lacked depth. The chicken was described as “boring”— unfortunate as we were expecting a top notch experience for the price— this place was a real let down in terms of the food experience.

    The ultimate in relaxed high-end quality beachside dining experiences. The food is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The location is surreal as the waves crash just beyond the glass and under the outdoor dining area. Highly recommend this to people looking for a place to experience what Malibu has to offer away from the crowds.

    We booked a reservation for my husband’s birthday but they didn’t even remember where we asked to sit or read my note about bringing out a surprise dessert. The food was ok, but nothing special. The check took 45 minutes to arrive… Definitely go somewhere else if you can…

    The team at Carbon Beach Club and Malibu Beach in in general is one of kind. Starting from valet parking, to hosts to waiting staff, this is one dream team of world class professionals, who make every visit a memorable one. They take pride in what they do, and their attitude of gratitude always adds value to every experience there. Have I mentioned their stellar chef and their palate bending creations? Definitely worth your money and time. You will be back for sure, I’ve been going here for 13 years or so. Thank you Angela and team! You are amazing!

    Beautiful location but service was terrible. We went there to celebrate my husbands birthday. I noted it on my reservation and also reminded the server. They didn’t bring out anything special nor recognized the celebration. Food was mediocre at best. I don’t think I’ll be going back.

    The salad was delivered with dry salami when my friend requested “no dry salami”. A new salad should of been delivered immediately. The waitress did not write anything down therefore the order was not correct. Waitress did not refill water or ice tea and kept giving the wrong drink orders to the wrong people. There were only two drink orders an Arnold Palmer and an ice tea. Check took too long to come. Waitress was not aware of our table or our needs.

    The view is amazing here! You’re right on the water and the ambiance especially at sunset is spectacular. The food and service is just ok. Don’t expect to be wowed by either but you can get a decent meal. It might be better to stick to a few appetizers and drinks.

    I don't want to give the waiter a bad review. He was fine, but the kitchen was very slow with our order. It took way too long to get most everything. Also, when the bill was presented, my husband checked it out, gave a credit card, but the bill that was returned to him was for $80+ more. He happened to notice it, but it made us wonder if this practice went on more frequently and purposely, when nobody might notice. Not good!! Food was very good, but the entire package wasn't there.
