Best server I have ever had at a restaurant. Thank you Matthew! Took care of our 87yr old mother-in-law, as well as our birthday guest.

We love coming here over the years since it is located right on the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The food and drinks are always delicious but the service was not good at all. The waitress kept forgetting what we asked her for and then wouldn’t come back very frequently so we got frustrated. It was my birthday and we told her that and she forgot the dessert. She didn’t know what certain things were on the taco Tuesday menu and we found her aloofness irritating. Again, the ambiance and food were great but service can be hit or miss.

GORGEOUS unobstructed ocean views in Malibu, delicious Hawaiian-inspired food and drinks, and lovely service....Duke's Malibu is a guaranteed good meal/beach-view experience. They observe a lot of COVID safety measures, which made my friend and I feel very secure. No complaints.

Our waiter was amazing and we were seated at the outdoor tent area next to the ocean. The sound of the waves were amazing, as was the fresh air. The tables were at least 6 feet apart and i felt like the restaurant really sanitized the tables before seating anyone.

The host staff was extremely accommodating. We had a party of 8 and due to the Covid restrictions there is a 6 person max for a party. The host made a way to get us two tables very close together. Our waiter was the absolute best!!! His name was Darren and if you ever make it to Dukes ask for Darren. The food was pretty good and we had a cake that was made of ice cream that was pretty darn good.

We made reservations for 4pm but arrived early we were unable to sit & have a drink before dinner because they said we’re not allowed to do that until the rest of the party arrived. There was only 4 of us, and it wasn’t too busy at 3pm. Once our party was all there we sat outside on perfect spot facing the ocean. All the good was perfect & our server Lauren was wonderful! We were celebrating anniversary & enjoyed Hula Pie dessert! Mahalo!
