    Today’s service was off its mark which is so unusual. But the whole day could not have been more sunny and gorgeous on the edge of the ocean. So it all balanced out.

    Slow service on a Saturday night, but top-notch food and view! Would be nice if they had a plant-based entree, but their existing plant based options (grilled avocado, squash side, and pear “carpaccio”) were imaginatively presented and delicious

    One star for the view. Another star for the quality of the food. Everything else was not good. Place was recommended as a great restaurant to take my wife for her birthday but the night was a disaster. Hostess was not pleasant. When we finally sat, we waited :30 minutes before anyone even said hello to us. We actually had to order drinks from the hostess. When a nearby table complained that they hadn't received any service it helped us finally get some attention as well. Food was good but came out in odd fashion. Side of fries that was supposed to be with the meal, came out with the salad. Entree didn't come out for an hour. The other couple cancelled their entree and left. We finally got ours but lost our appetite so we had them box it to take it home. Even without the entree, the waiter came by and asked if we were ready for dessert. It was bizarre. On the way home I planned to stop at another restaurant to get my wife her birthday desert but everyone was closed at this point. If they can get their service in order, this would be a good place to eat. Until then, I won't be back.

    Management and our server Anthony were amazing. They went out of their way. However the food was not good apart from Branzino. My daughter's date ordered the chicken which was dry, my hisband ordered paella which was minjy in quantity and quality of the seafood. My daughter ordered the salmon which she said was ok. I also ordered oysters. These were tiny tasteless and one of them wad off. The only reason we didnt complain about the food is that we didnt want to embarras my daughters and her date. Desert was good. My husband ans i shared a bakwd in skillet choc chop cookie but not 2 inches thick at described in the menu. However the manager was amazing and went out of his way to make us comfortable. Our server Anthony was also very attentive. The mocktails were excellent. We ordered No-booze Cruz. Yummy and no alcohol wow!

    This place has gone waaaaaaay down hills since there's been some sort of change in management. They are now downright hostile to locals. They wanted $2000 for a reservation for a table for 7. This did not include food. This was only to hold the table. And they would only offer a fixed menu because our party was to them so large. Needless to say, we went to another restaurant that valued our patronage. Food has always been just okay. One of the perks was the chocolate chip cookies that used to be on the bar. My spouse would always get one after a meal. Now they're in the check in area with a sticker that says, "Hotel Guests Only." This after a several hundred dollar meal that was "just okay." Once I was leaving after I believed I signed the check. But the waiter came running after me saying he hadn't run the card. Honest mistake. While he was running the card he said quite judge-y, "Are you from around here," as if we were trying to dine and dash! WTF has happened to this place!??? We've spent thousands of dollars here over the years. Oh, and... One more story. We got a gift card from a friend who knew we went here a lot. When we tried to use the gift card they said no $ amount was on it. We insisted that it was valid. They went off to their computer system and found it actually had $200 on it. Again, nothing like a great end to a meal than being accused of trying to pull a fast one on a restaurant we've been regulars at. We'd go for the view. We'd go because it's close. We'd go because the staff used to be nice. Never again. And we're telling all our local friends how we've been treated.

    We sadly didn’t have a great experience. Hostess did not inform wait staff that we had been seated so we waited a good 15 minutes before someone came over. The rest of the evening was followed by different wait staff serving us and no one checking in on us. We ended up doing dessert in our room because we didn’t want to deal.

    The place is very relaxing and quite , maybe quite overpriced but I think that’s because we went on Christmas Day as it worked out to 200+ per person which is same price we would of paid if we went to Nobu , the staff are extremely nice and polite

    Had a nice Christmas dinner at Carbon Beach Club. Food was delicious all around. We had the wine pairing as well. The wines were great, though the dessert wine could have been a bit sweeter. Nice to sit outside and see the sunset. Got a bit cold after the sun went down, but the patio heaters kept us toasty. It was quite expensive but we knew that going in and had a great Christmas experience.

    One of our favorite dining locations in So. Cal especially, Malibu! Dining literally on the water. The views are truly epic! The food is incredible, and the service is impeccable! The overall hospitality from start to finish is next level. Have had several birthdays, Valentine's Day, and now Thanskgiving dinners here. It's so peaceful. The food is 5 star dining. This is not a place just to eat, but a location to experience. Yesterday for Thanksgiving, we ran almost an hour behind, yet the manager was able to accommodate us outside eventhough the restaurant was completely booked. Truly impressed! Everything was just so perfect! Thanks for beautiful memories! ❤️🙏🏽🙋🏽‍♂️
