    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.

    It’s been years since I returned to this jewel of Malibu. The entire staff - valet, receptionist, servers — were very friendly, talkative and engaging. The server made great suggestions. The food delicious and THE VIEW: AMAZING.

    Location and view doesn’t get much better !! Although service was slow and the food is very average. We ordered the paella for two and it had zero flavor. Also quite pricey so you would expect higher quality food .

    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.

    Great Restarant with the best location in Malibu. The outdoor terrace is right over the water. The food is fantastic and the servers are very attentive. My wife has a gluten allergy and Our server made sure everything she ordered was good for her. I would highly recommend the Carbon Beach Club.

    Carbon Beach Club Restaurant has completely changed their menu. As Malibu residents, we like to patronize our local restaurants. This has been one of our favorites over the years. Not so much last night. The waiter was not interested in us or his job. Distant at best. We were looking forward to Moules Frites, off the menu. Ask the waiter if it was possible to get, he ignored my request. Ordered paella, the worst. Dry rice, one over cooked scalloped, over cooked small shrimp & chopped kielbasa, no sauce, dry dry dry. Thank goodness it was served with lemon, saved the dish. Very disappointed. My husband had steak frites. Hard to mess up. Medium rare, half was cooked correctly, the other half must have missed the grill as it was raw! Our campion had the tuna nicoise salad. It was dry, hardly any dressing & no flavor. We have loved the restaurant in the past. One of our go to spots, especially for out of town guests. Sad to say, we won't be back any time soon.

    The outside area was very small, they’ve already charged 18%tip on our bill which is ok but when they brought the bill they place the receipt with the add on tip behind the other receipt that has a blank place for tip. So if my husband wouldn’t pay attention we would’ve paid tip twice which is not right.
