    The salad was delivered with dry salami when my friend requested “no dry salami”. A new salad should of been delivered immediately. The waitress did not write anything down therefore the order was not correct. Waitress did not refill water or ice tea and kept giving the wrong drink orders to the wrong people. There were only two drink orders an Arnold Palmer and an ice tea. Check took too long to come. Waitress was not aware of our table or our needs.

    The view is amazing here! You’re right on the water and the ambiance especially at sunset is spectacular. The food and service is just ok. Don’t expect to be wowed by either but you can get a decent meal. It might be better to stick to a few appetizers and drinks.

    When the restaurant is fully staffed, it is a great experience. However, it is currently understaffed and so expectations should be different when dining here.

    I don't want to give the waiter a bad review. He was fine, but the kitchen was very slow with our order. It took way too long to get most everything. Also, when the bill was presented, my husband checked it out, gave a credit card, but the bill that was returned to him was for $80+ more. He happened to notice it, but it made us wonder if this practice went on more frequently and purposely, when nobody might notice. Not good!! Food was very good, but the entire package wasn't there.

    Food was average, drinks were great, service outrageously slow. They had a young lady in training that took care of us, she was lovely and she went above and beyond to expedite things but it was evident she was slammed with multitude of tables. Not her fault, it was disappointing to see managers stand around with no tendency to remedy the situation. That’s said, view and ambiance is incredible, service could have been better, food … maybe it just wasn’t our day. We frequent at carbon often but this time wasn’t a good experience.

    The only reason service is at a 4 is cause they seemed short staffed - think we were there during a transition time and they were unexpectedly busy. All good tho! Food,wine.ambiance more than made up for it. And upon ordering, food came out quickly.

    One of the best locations in Malibu, right on the water. Food and service are both excellent. Valet parking is a must as street parking is almost impossible. The grilled avocado and the Branzino for 2 are fantastic.

    We went for our 6 year wedding anniversary. Nothing special was done, but nothing bad happened either. Entree was a little under seasoned but the oysters and calamari we had for apps were great. Our server was wonderful, and the ambience can’t be beat.
