Gladstone's is always a great choice for a restaurant. Its view can't be beat, considering that it is right on the water. Plus, parking is very convenient, although they do charge $11 for self-parking in the adjacent lot.
Nice place. Food is delicious. Summer dining would be great.
Food was great!! One of our favorite places
Turn the heat on in the restaurant if it's cold. We left because my wife was uncomfortable.
Outstanding staff well-trained and super friendly. The parking attendants, hostess (Kelly), waitress (Marlin), and bus boy were the best. Marlin was so patient with my friend. She definitely went
beyond the call of duty. Great customer service. Kelly also took care of us with an excellent table
and very cordial with making future reservations. Compliments to the chef....the linguini & clams
and my lobster brioche roll were fantastic. Keep up the great service and top quality cuisine.
We will be returning very soon. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!!!
It was a good time for this restaurant but now it is no longer a good place to eat.
Perfect lunch spot - with an inside table looking over the ocean on a blustery day. Servers were friendly and responsive. Food was fabulous! We had the clam chowder, crab cakes, and ceviche. Everything was perfect. Thanks, Gladstones!
We had a large group in early on Saturday. They accommodated us in advance of their opening. A fantastic experience. Our Thanks to Marcus and the Gladstone's team!
Delightful experience. Sat by window and watched sunset and ocean. Food wonderful. Waiter forgot my coleslaw but I didn't miss it. There was so much food. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Great place for fun relaxing lunch 👍🏻👍🏻😉
Such a great location for brunch! We had an incredible view of the water and the food was delicious!
This is a great place to eat!!! Paul really knows how to take care of his buckeye fans!!!
The food was wonderful, the view was beautiful, but the service was slow and inadequate.
Great place great service
We arrived almost an hour earlier than our reservation but staff was great to accommodate us a bit earlier. We spent our 30 minute wait in the bar and enjoyed football playoff game viewing and drink specials that were offered during the game. Our meal was great, and loved the ocean view and sea breezes. After our meal we went back to the bar to see the end of the game and to grab one more drink special. I felt like it was a good value overall, total bill was $230 and that was for six entrees, two apps and a few beers. Great experience, will visit again next time we are in the area.
This was my first visit to Gladstone’s and let me tell you! Everything from The food, the service, the view, and the ambiance, AMAZING! Best ceviche I’ve ever had! Service was completely outstanding!
Gladstone’s had excellent food and a fantastic view even on a dreary, rainy day. Our server was great - efficient and knowledgeable about the dishes. Always a lovely dining experience.
My second visit in 22 years, the view is still amazing!! The menu was limited and the cocktails was strong, so overall it was relaxing and tasty.
Just an overall great dinner experience
Always a good bet for sunday lunch. Very professional waiting staff and great seafood
My dining experience was exceptional. I was invited to dine at Gladstones by a friend and I have already planned a date to return. This time I will be the one introducing a friend to Gladstones.
As always, Gladstones was fantastic. If you're in Malibu, it is a must-stop spot on the PCH. The food and the service were outstanding!
New Year’s Day!!
Ordered steam clams very disappointed got just about 12 mini clams half were empty🤣🤣 also now have to pay for bread. Go for the drinks and view not the food
Every time I’m in SoCal, I feel I have to visit Gladstone’s for lunch. There’s just nothing like dining right on the beach and this place has never disappointed. Creamy and delicious clam chowder, a hearty lobster roll - which they prepared without celery at my request - and a to-die-for cheesecake all made for a perfect meal. Don’t let the haters deter you. This is a terrific place.
Food is just average and expensive but location is stunning.
What happened to this place? Closes at 9 on Saturday??? No one there...reservations at 8:30 felt rushed to get out at 9:30...Poe menu selection stringy chewy lobster. Went years ago it was awesome.
Holidays - fabulous location and a perfect day.
Mediocre food, poor value. Good service and great location
Beautiful views from outside. Good heat lamps.
So very disappointed. Called and told staff we were celebrating my daughter’s engagement. Table set up for us was terrible. Waiter gave poor service and was more interested in table filled with women. Didn’t even give us specials or soup or catch of the day. Velvet acknowledged the occasion we were celebrating.
Great place to unwind after s day at the Getty Villa. Good service and yummy food! Atmosphere cannot be better anywhere else!
We brought our friends from Italy to Malibu and thought they would enjoy Gladstones. It was a hit! They not only enjoyed being able to sit outside and enjoy the view, but they loved all of the dishes they tried. Excellent crab cakes, New England clam chowder, grilled salmon, fish tacos, and California salads. Marcus was one of the most attentive, friendly, personable waiters we’ve ever had the pleasure to be served by! He is a gem and obviously loves his job. Thank you. Our Italian friends felt very welcome and enjoyed their meals immensely.
Average for the price. Although we had a reservation they seemed surprised by our presence and it was far from a smooth check in even though the place was far from full. Menu was briefer than i saw online. Not many vegetarian options. Food was fine but pricey. Won’t be back for a long time.
25th birthday. They gave him a huge piece of cake which was very nice
Great as always.
Son visiting from Texas. Perfect lunch spot in Malibu. Beautiful weather, outstanding service and delicious food = a perfect afternoon!
We had a family Christmas celebration at Gladstones with 8 people. We were happy with everything. Highly recommend it. We could actually have a relax conversation without shouting over the next table.
Gladstones is an old treasure with an extraordinary view of the ocean. It was a quiet Monday night and the wait staff was friendly, prompt, thoughtful and professional. Our waitress was wonderfully considerate of our three-year-old. The food was fine, the cocktails excellent--all of it somewhat over-priced but well worth an occasional visit.
Always a great place to go - a favorite of ours and fun to bring visitors!
