Sunday, April 1, 2018
My mom and I loved it. Amazing view! We were upstairs. And Andre the French waiter was great. I recommend it for a nice lunch and sunset as the name said.
Our second time having lunch here. Love this place. Our new find!
Excellent value, 3rd time here and we will come back
2/25/2018 Dined tonight and wasn't happy with the entire experience. From walking in and stating we have a reservation , which we were on time for. We were told the hostess would be right with us and to please wait to the left. Another party proceed to arrive as the hostess arrived back at the desk and went ahead to seat them without even checking with us first. We were then placed in the corner , understand the restaurant is under construction currently . Our waiter Ernesto was MIA most of the evening. Our water glasses were never refilled, my husbands Salmon arrived cold and my hamburger which was to be med rare came fully cooked, missing the cheese and the aioli sauce which was to come with the dish. It took another 10 minutes from the time it was served to check on us. I sent back my burger and explained the issue only to receive a burger now with cheese , still well done and no sauce. My husband chose not to return his salmon and just had it packed to go.
I can't say why the service was so bad as the restaurant really wasn't packed other than we just had a bad waiter who didn't care to check on his customers or make the order correct.
Won't return for quite awhile as this has left a bad taste in our mouths. The worst part is we are Malibu locals and don't really have many choices for dining.
Always love that place! All good!
The longest Sunset ..... faces true West!
Been waiting to try this spot for years. Finally pulled the trigger this Sunday and man was it packed! To be expected though, it was a gorgeous day at the beach.
Had a reservation so luckily didn't have to wait to be seated. The place was a little crammed but not a bother. We didn't get a window seat per request with the reservation but we could still get the view of the beach.
Service was fine, our server was good except I knew the moment we ordered and he didn't write any of it down that there would be some issues. We ordered the calamari to start which I have to admit was probably the best I've ever had. The pieces were thick and meaty and the marinara sauce seemed to be made in house which was excellent. As for entrees I ordered the Salmon Benedict with a side salad instead of hash-browns, manfriend ordered two eggs with chicken sausage and side of hash-browns, comes with toast as well. Also ordered a side of muffins.
We get our food, my dish comes out with two sides of hash-browns and no side salad. No muffins or toast ever come. The food tasted good except I wasn't a fan of the Salmon Benedict. The fish itself was tasty but the whole thing was wayyyy too smothered in Hollandaise sauce. Made the English muffin soggy and overpowered the taste of the fish.
Overall I'd say I would be back if the opportunity arose (with a reservation for sure) but I won't go out of my way. Some of the people who came without reservations were waiting 1hr+. Beautiful location with some good food, just made sure your server writes down your order and get ya sauces on the side.
We loved our breakfast! Delicious food and gorgeous view. Highly recommend having breakfast lunch or dinner!
We always get the fish tacos and did not disappoint. The clam chowder is also very good. We also tried the burrata cheese and tomatoes and found that to be very good but the not sure the tomatoes were heirloom.
Had a nice quiet dinner, with some great fresh seafood and a nice cocktail
First time here and was a Friday night president's day weekend. So probably not representative of normal weekend. We had seafood plater and burrata tomato plate; everything was extremely fresh and good. Seemed like they only had one waitress for the entire restaurant. Saw her once maybe twice the entire meal.
Evening started off fine, service was a bit slow. Had reservations at 5pm.
My biggest complaint was that I literally had 4 bites of my food and asked for the rest to go and they only gave me part of my dinner. I ordered mussels and frites but when I got back home to Irvine I looked in my bad and .. no fries.. what????
I did have appetizers so that’s why I took my food home; not because it wasn’t yummy.
Just disappointed. Also the cocktail orders too about 10 minutes to 15 minutes every time we ordered not to happy about that either.
We have been here several times but this was the first time seated upstairs. It was great with terrific views. We enjoy lunch here every time we come.
The cottage-y ambiance reminds one of Nantucket-on-Zuma Beach. There’s noplace like it!
Since we were married at The Sunset, we have Valentine's Day dinner there every year. But tradition alone isn't what brings us back. The food and drinks continue to be excellent, with interesting presentations being added every year. The view of course is amazing and we love getting there in time to have our margaritas while watching the sunset at the Sunset.
This year, the crab cakes were divine as usual -- the perfect combination of crispy outside and soft, warm inside. The spiny lobster salad was also excellent. My wife likes her filet mignon medium well, yet many restaurants apparently can't imagine anyone wanting a steak cooked that much and bring her a medium rare steak. The Sunset is creative yet takes direction well--her filet was cooked perfectly, exactly how she wanted it. My crab-stuff salmon was similarly cooked perfectly and was really tasty.
We were a little disappointed that the usual lava cake was not a dessert option this year, that is, until we tried the chocolate mousse. Never mind. This was the best chocolate mousse either of us had ever had.
Bravo to The Sunset for yet another perfect Valentine's dinner.
Only negative is that we couldn’t get the desired view as requested but, overall the food was amazing and the service was okay.
Our experience at the Sunset was fun and delicious. It definitely helped that we had booked through open table as the restaurant reserved us a GREAT table that otherwise we would have been waiting for a long time . The service was exceptional, fun loving and tip top!
love the food and service but the noise is impossible !!! Also, they leave the windows open when it is cold so it is freezing in the restaurant.
Our server was so attentive and they kept the hot rolls with butter coming! Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable, rewarding experience. The food was delicious -- nothing out of this world, but really, really good.
Overall we had a great time on a beautiful Malibu day. The Sunset is blessed with an amazing beachside location, and they manage not to mess it up by providing a tasty meal in a clean, attractively appointed space, with decent service. Look forward to coming here again.
I had the Fish Tacos,asked for not hot spicy. It could have had some sauce that was not spicy HOT. I found it very bland. For people that have pain when they have Spicy HOT food you should have some sauce that has flavor but not Spicy HOT.
I had to ask for water 4 times before it was served.
Great food, amazing view, and great service. We had the breakfast burrito, the vanilla pancakes and the fried chicken sandwich. They were all soooooo yummy! Definitely going back for more!
What a wonderful place, their staff were so happy and nice, very welcoming and great New Year's party. We had a great time for been our first visit. We definitely going back soon.The view was perfect dinner for our romantic dinner. Thank you
Over book tables but accommodated is upstairs. Turned out great.
Great time with family on New Year's Eve. The Sunset had a wonderful menu available for that day. We had Lobster Florentine, Filet Mignon, Scallops, Crabcakes, Chicken and more. Everything was fantastic. Price was a little steep but that's Malibu.
The wait staff is always professional and knowledgeable. Hostess curtious. Always enjoy my meal here.
My husband and I ate here for his birthday dinner. Service was great - food was awesome! Oh...the VIEW!!!! What an AMAZING VIEW of the ocean! There was a sunset wedding going on right across the street - it was a beautiful ceremony to witness. We will be back for sure!
This was our 7th visit to the Sunset and Everything was just perfect!
We had our anniversary dinner here. Great sunset views! The food was fine but little overpriced. The valet service was conveniente since the parking area is usually full with cars trying to watch the sunset
Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.
The Sunset would get 10 stars for its view of the ocean and sunset. We went there after picking my son up at the airport for a welcome home late lunch. Service was accommodating and fine, although we had to request removal of a double charge for a latte on the bill. The bread basket had good, warm sourdough rolls. My son ordered the Scottish salmon and I tasted it. The presentation was very nice and the slab of salmon with seared skin was thick and appetizing. The salmon was very tasty and my son raved about his choice. My mother and I had fish and chips, which is made with red snapper. I ordered it because it was described as tempura coating. Well, maybe, but the coating was doughy, thick and not crispy. The fish was fine. The chips were those tiny little thin sticks and were also not crisp, not tasty and not even very hot. Wine by the glass was fine. We shared a piece of carrot cake that was good, not too sweet. So, I will return to this restaurant for the location and view but will be choosing other dishes to try. I want to love the food as much as the view!
We stop here almost every time we head up or down the coast. It's a great place for food, drinks and a view that is fabulous.
Exceptional place especially to watch the sun set. It was our first time there and we truly enjoyed ourselves. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and my wife had the Lobster with Noodles. Both meals were satisfying in size and taste.
Octopus, lobster roll and mussels we're excellent
The Sunset Restaurant had a great beach vibe and incredible seafood. We dined there with friends the past two weekends and everyone raved about their meal and we enjoyed the nice setting. We started off with cocktails and calamari. then had salads, followed by the main course. The mussels in tomato broth were to die for- truly the best mussels I have ever had. My husband had the seafood risotto and really liked the variety of seafood in the dish. One friend had the linguini and clams- which had so many clams and was quite tasty. We enjoyed the catch of the day on both occasions as well. Hats off to the chef! We will be back!
Great overall experience. Very attentive and friendly staff. Love that they offer grass-fed and free-range entrees.
- Stunning views of the ocean and Sunsets
- Whale Sightings in season
- Dolphin Sightings directly from the table
- Fresh Seafood
- Friendly Staff
- Amazing selection of spirits and bites for happy hour. Happy hour timing is wonderful too M-F 3 -9 PM.
We have been here on several occasions and always have a great time. We had people visiting, so it was wonderful for them to visit the beautiful LA beaches and see the stunning sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Went for lunch on a Saturday. Poor value, poor service and subpar food. Expensive parking. Very overrated and overpriced.
This restaurant is delightful whenever I've had the opportunity to dine there! Nice ambiance, good food, good service and the view of the ocean is spectacular!
