Service was friendly and fantastic, as was the scenery - only restaurant I've ever visited where a whale swam by. Literally. Food was very good - best coconut shrimp, steak was pretty good. Would recommend.

We have visited Duke’s in other locations which was very nice. But this location in Malibu was/is not recommendable. The traffic getting there was awful from the valley, especially down the 405 fwy, and took 1 HOUR to go 7 miles on the 1 hwy before arriving at Duke’s with no accidents reported. I could not recommend this location and will not be visiting it again. I know there’s nothing Duke’s can do about this problem but beware!

Sunday brunch
Pretty standard buffet brunch with a terrific omelette station. Go for the sensational view, spot on the pacific with a decent chance of sighting a pod of dolphins. The inspiration for the original "Gidget" series is there too.

Great food, and good service from our waiter. We requested and got a window seat for my sons birthday so watched the dolphins and pelicans while we ate. They gave us a free serving of hula pie for my sons birthday. Recommended.

It was a nice, relaxing date night by the water. Our server was top-notch, friendly (I wish I got his name). Even though we weren't next to the window as requested, we still had a view of the ocean and it was lovely and relaxed. We will definitely return, next time with our kids, who we think will really enjoy it.

This was our first visit to Duke's Malibu. The occasion was a reunion of cousins, and this was the absolutely perfect location. Our table for 5 overlooked the ocean, and was in a quiet location in the restaurant. The service was perfect - timely, but not intrusive.

Our Calamari starter was excellent, as were my fish tacos, made with mahi-mahi. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their fish and chips.

Considering the location, the excellent service, and the quality of the food, I'd consider Duke's to be a wonderful value. The only downside was the $6 mandatory valet parking fee!

Nice food and wonderful view! Really wanted a table right by the window and one became free shortly after we had been seated and only had drinks so we asked if we could move but they refused. Shame as we came for the setting. I know you can’t guarantee a window seat but it would have been nice to have been able to move when we asked so very politely!

We were there to celebrate our cousin's birthday. The service could not have been better, and the food is always fantastic. We had a great table by the window. We come here about 6 times a year but our cousin's have never been before. Now you have 2 more customers for life.

We first ate at several Duke's restaurants in Hawaii and loved the food, the decor and the attentive service and the beach front locations. When we heard that several Duke's had opened up in California, we were anxious to try them The Malibu location is water front and a window seat is perfect. The food and service are excellent. This past trip was to try the Sunday Brunch which is a great value. The Macadamia nut pancakes were my favorite. Using the online reservation maker was painless and easy. For a celebration or special night out this is a perfect dining spot!

Not thrilled this time and we usually love this place. Went to celebrate my birthday and everyone was disappointed that they took our favorite waffles off of the brunch display. We left wishing we had went to Cheesecake Factory instead....

Susan was excellent as well as the gentlemen that quickly overhead us asking for more iced tea and quickly refilled our glasses immediately! That was awesome. I don’t remember the name of the gentleman that brought our boys their vodka, but he, along with Susan, was excellent! Thank you for a nice experience last night!

We showed up early for our reservation, they mentioned it would just be 10 more minutes. Gave us a pager, we told them we would be outside and they totally forgot about us. Seated at 8:15, we had to walk in for them to remember they forgot about us. The hostess said “oh crap” under her breath.
The food was cold.
Our waiter wAs the best part of the entire night.
We also received an email from open table saying we missed our reservation, so I had to approach the hostess once again to remind them we showed up.
Not the best experience all the way around.
