We enjoyed our DineLA experience. The atmosphere was comfortable with spectacular views. It took awhile for bar service as servers were busy with food service as well as bar. Dining was nice, and both servers at bar and dining room were attentive and friendly. Will return again!

We have been going for years. Its even better when there is no traffic and there was none getting there or Going home. Nice renovations. The food is always good. I had the ribs. They were pretty dry. I really should have ordered the fish like I always do. Worth the trip with out of town guests or just family and friends.

The view was fabulous - right on the water. We went for the Sunday brunch which was a great deal at $30/person. The food was very good, but I don't know if it was a fair test of what it might be at a regular meal service. It was a bit noisy, and great for families. Very casual -so as long as you know what you are getting, it's worth a stop.

My husband had been to this place before, and that’s how we ended up there on Saturday. We were celebrating our wedding. Boy, were we in for a surprise. The food was absolutely DISGUSTING!!! We spent over $100 with tip included for a meal that was probably worth less than $50 altogether. Yuck, definitely won’t ever be fking back to Duke’s. Apparently this place has changed a lot.....

Service was slow & somewhat indifferent, food was mediocre with small portions. I'm a fan of other restaurants owned by this group, and have enjoyed Jake's in Tahoe. This visit was a bit of a miss, in terms of service & food quality. Perhaps an off day... Incredible & Beautiful location, though

I took my fiancé to Duke’s for New Years Eve dinner. The staff was great. The food was great. Service was top notch. Not to sound too stuffy, but the one thing that bothered me was that, at 8pm on New Years Eve I literally saw men dressed I sweat pants, jeans, hats and t shirts. I don’t blame Duke’s for this fully, but I do think that for dinner there should be some kind of dress code.

I've been going to Duke's for many years. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is always good and the servers are pleasant. It's a great big restaurant sited beautifully on PCH with amazing ocean views from everyplace except the bathrooms. They have the usual brunch buffet on weekends that you have to order, unless you sit in the bar area. But the bar area is large enough that you can usually find a table, I've seen whales swimming by while sitting at the bar. Also, the bar area is not as overrun with tourists and has a more local vibe. I overhear people grumbling about the $6.00 valet parking but where are they expecting to park on PCH for free? The Valets are the first point of contact at Duke's, they are the friendliest group of valets in Los Angeles. I don't mind the fee, which is about half of what it is at most upscale places around the city.

GOOD but not great. We have been spoiled by tha Duke’s on Waikiki Beach, which is obviously much larger and where the barefoot bar is obvisouly much more “authentic.” The food in Malibu did not WOW us like Hawaii, either.

The service was OUTSTANDING, though! Our waitress was on her game, and she knew her stuff! Her recommendations and pairings were PERFECT. Of course, the Hula Pie is to DIE FOR! We shared two - the original and the Chef’s Special for the week! ABSOLUTE MUSTS! The cocktails were FABULOUS, and her timing with the drinks and the appetizers and main course were RIGHT ON TIME.

Price was not outside what we expected for Malibu and for Duke’s (about $375 for 6 adults with drinks, appetizers, and two desserts). While it is hard to beat the Waikiki Beach Duke’s, this is worth the trip, especially to entertain out-of-towners. If nothing else, go for some Hula Pie! I give this a LET’s GO and HAVE FUN!

This place has gone way downhill in the past year and a half. They used to have the best fish tacos on the face of the Earth, they had an amazing veggie burger. However, many changes were made in the last year. The portions were cut at least by third, they cut drink sizes, they bring out 3 rolls of bread for 4 person table. The food quality has gone way downhill. I'm a local and I used to come here at least once a week most weeks two or three times for taco Tuesday and drinks. Yesterday was last straw, I'm never going back there again. There are many options in Malibu and Dukes has showed me they just don't care.

I had the Calamari and it was delicious. The entrees were all cooked to perfection and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I completely recommend Duke's as a wonderful dining experience.

This was my third or fourth time to visit DUKE'S. I live in Las Vegas, and when my friend and I go down to the Beach, we have to have a meal at DUKE'S. We usually stay in Hermosa Beach, so it's a bit of a drive, but it's so worth it. The restaurant was renovated since my last visit, but it didn't ruin the atmosphere. It's still a most marvelous place. The staff has always been friendly and very helpful. I love being close enough to the ocean that the waves sometimes hit the windows. DUKE'S is my favorite place to relax and have a meal. The food has never failed to be great. If you're in Malibu for whatever reason, make it a point to stop at DUKE'S. You won't be sorry.
