The service was fair. My water was never refilled and plates were not picked up at all or for long periods of time. The server also came and asked for the receipt to be handed to them after it was signed (while there were still empty waters and unclean plates on the table) because it "might get wet." Never saw them again after that.

A few items we ordered were no longer (or maybe never were) available but we were not told about this so it was a surprise when our entrees showed up with substituted sides that we were not given the chance to self-select. It's understandable that may happen, but not being told and given a chance to choose (ahead of time so our food could come out together and hot) was disappointing. We were there for a celebration and chose to splurge on our orders, but dishes were alternatively cold and/or not cooked to specifications (or partially missing). It was not a terrible experience overall, some of the food was good; but it was very mediocre and for the price, we'd rather go somewhere where we are more confident in the quality of service and food. We would probably only come back here for more casual dining, maybe lunch.

Sorry your experience did not live up to our standards. I apologize for the lack of communication and would love to address that with your server so that it does not happen again as this is not usually the kind of reviews we see. Again sorry we did not exceed your expectations and hope we can earn another shot.

Nice night to enjoy the outdoor seating area. Calamari was tender and tasty. Our waiter, Brandon was excellent! Special tonight was cod picatta, and was very good with rice and beans. Great food and service and close to home.

We were very disappointed in our meal. We went away for the weekend and wanted to treat ourselves to a nice meal. The reviews online were good but then that was really it. It took almost 15 mins before the server came by. The Onion soup was good but our steaks were not so much. one came out cold, sent it back but was not much warmer on the second on. The baked potato looked like it was sitting for a while as the cheese had that old look. We were not the old people that had an issue. I would not go back

Food was good- somewhat commercial in terms of portions and presentation. Waiter was acceptable but not super friendly. Did his job that’s it. Hostess used poor judgement when deciding on table. Also this is the second time we have been there and noticed that the front entrance door glass is consistently fingerprinted and doesn’t look clean. Really need to consistently monitor and maintain.

Extremely poor service. Waited at table for 15 minutes before drink order was even taken. Bread was placed on table after appetizers were served. No baked potatoes, no NY strip steaks, no Patron. Food was over charred. Normally, a good experience. Server gave us a lackluster apology at the end of our dinner and took 10% off of bill to amend for the poor service. His explanation was an unexpected influx of DoorDash, Uber Eats orders that were obviously more important than serving sitting customers.

Thanks for taking the time to write us about your dinner. We apologize for the lack of timeliness in greeting your table and for being out of some items, it is very hard to source products during this global pandemic and we are proud that we have 99% of our menu available and have not had to pass any additional charges onto our guests or run a limited menu like many other places are doing.

When we were seated, it took 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. Then they were out of New York strip steak, ribs and one other thing on a Saturday night at 5:00??? Once we were waited on, the service was good and they did give us one free dessert.

We have gone there many times and enjoyed a quiet meal. Unfortunately, this night there was a screaming-at-the-top-of-her-lungs child and the parents thought it was cute. The mostly older crowd kept looking over as it was impossible to try to ignore the din.
Since this establishment has room on two sides, it would be great if they could have a "quiet meal space" and a general space. The dinner was to make some decisions and after working hard all week, we just wanted 60 minutes of quiet and a good meal. The noise really did ruin the dinner for us.

Malibu Beach Grill
Responded on September 15, 2020

Sorry the child was loud during your dining experience and the parents did nothing, unfortunately there is not much we can do. We do have a private dining room adjoining the bar area but it is only tables with no booths so some people would not like to sit there and it books out for larger groups. We always do our best to provide a great dining experience for all our guests.

The food was also really good and nicely priced . It’s a nice date night / romantic scene casual definitely a spot for young professionals . Our waitress was very nice and attentive . We had a small issue with our dessert and the manager went back and corrected it herself with no questions asked . It was a great experience we will definitely be back

Best steaks in the area and the caesar salad was fresh and crispy and not too much garlic.
The only thing we did not enjoy was the background music which might be OK for a bar but it is not what we want to hear at dinner. We prefer soft dinner music.

The service and the food were great. The only thing that was not on point was the wine service. A random lady came to our table with my Cakebread Chardonnay and presented the bottle and taste to my dates sister that i was meeting for the first time. Im not sure who does the wine training there but the guest who orders the wine and will eventually pay for said wine is the one the bottle is presented to and the taste to except the wine. It was disappointing that I think they may have had a dishwasher open the wine or at least someone who doesn’t know the proper steps of wine service.

We've been to this restaurant before and it was enjoyable. But this time the sirloin steak was so tough it couldn't be eaten. The manager took it of our bill. Also, the service was not up to par. Had to go to the bar to get a refill on our drinks because our waiter disappeared. They said it was because he was running food to the tables, but this is during the pandemic so they were keeping the restaurant half full. Wont go back.

Joseph, thanks for taking the time to write us a review about your experience. As you said the last time you dined with us it was enjoyable and we strive to exceed our guests expectations. It is true during these drastically changing times we have had to adjust for the safety of our guests and teammates. It is unlike Scott to disappear or give sub par service so that will be dealt with and I am sorry that your sirloin was not up to par but am glad we removed that entree from the bill.

It was a great dining experience! The food was exceptional and very fresh. We both had the fish - (Mullet Snapper) & Swordfish. Both served on Asiago mashed potatoes and sautéed zucchini & squash. Was very good! Our server CJ was very knowledgeable and gave us the history of the restaurant and the concept of Farm to Table. We liked that everything was sourced locally.
