Incredible views, awesome service, food selection was great. Bit overpriced for quality and quantity but I guess it is offset by the amazing location.

Incredible view and great food! But the service was one of the slowest and worst (in terms of mistakes in the order and in the bill!) at a restaurant with this potential. Truly a pity. We may give it another chance because the Manager was super nice! and the view and the food are great.

Our lunch at the Carbon Beach Club restaurant was fabulous as usual. The setting of this location overlooking the waves crashing on the shore of the Pacific Ocean in Malibu could not be beat. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable.

Although he warmed up, the waiter was a bit surly for the first half hour. The octopus was mostly potatoes.

Rafael was awesome! Very attentive, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We enjoy him as our waiter! Something to be aware of though about this last visit, is that this restaurant adds 18% gratuity for a couple of two! It's a bit scammy to be honest. The first check is your bill with the normal "For you convince we are providing the gratuity calculations for you"......Then if you look at the itemized check behind the first bill, there is an 18% gratuity service charge already added to your bill. -My husband and I overheard another couple by us complaining about the gratuity fee being automatically added to their bill- then, when were received our bill, we felt the same way. As most people do, they just add the normal gratuity without looking at the itemized bill - so the restaurant is double charging for gratuities! Please be aware of your bill and what you have already been charged.

If you're looking for a romantic spot right on the beach in Malibu, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place. We loved the view/ambience in addition to the well-prepared and delicious food. We had the crispy artichokes as an appetizer. The steak and frites came medium rare just as we ordered. We are very much looking forward to our next visit.

Ambiance is amazing, the food was pretty bland. I ordered the branzino and it was very under seasoned and bland. My friend had the steak and frites and it was also bland. Idk if I’d order the same thing again but I’d return for the scenery snd maybe just drinks. Food is definitely underwhelming.

You can’t beat the view and last night, the large waves and high tides gave us quite a show. We were delicately covered in Seaspray. And the food and service also made it a great experience. It is a relatively small patio and so even if it was fill, it would not have felt crowded, which we enjoyed. It seems like it’s more for hotel guests which made it feel like a little secret. We will definitely be back!

If I am paying $30 for my food alone, I expect to get pretty good service. Our waiter brought our food, I ordered a glass of wine and he brought it out 2 min later. He did not come back by the table for almost an entire hour. There was only 1 other table out there and it is a small patio area. He had to see us outside every time he walked in and out or was at the bar inside and still didn’t come to check on us. When he did we joked that he forgot about us and he didn’t even apologize and just asked if we needed anything else. Ummm maybe we did 30 min ago, but after an hour we just want to leave. I receive the check and there is an 18% gratuity added to it already. Clearly this man knows he doesn’t have to work for any sort of tip since it is automatically added. I spoke to the manager and she apologized, she spoke to him and he STILL didn’t apologize. I would not go back and I would recommend avoiding this place solely based on service. I hope the restaurant also seriously considers his position there since he can’t even manage to wait on 2 tables. Everything else was good. What sucks is we probably would have spent an additional $100 or so on drinks and dessert if he had just come by the dang table.

Just WOW ! It was our anniversary and all my dreams came true. The food was an added bonus as I was just hoping to spend an evening by the ocean but the food was Michelin star. New Chef apparently and my Branzino was off the charts and by far the best I have ever had. Service was above par also. As for the view well it was West Coast Pacific paradise. Thank you. My husband loved his burger and Pumpkin fries too.

Had an incredible lunch here yesterday. Great service, delicious and fresh dishes, quaint and quiet ambiance, and unforgettable desserts.

Appetizer: We had the Calamari (best I've ever had). Batter was a bit greasy but the calamari was tender and juicy.
Salad: Chopped salad, Delicious! (Spain style and flavored cuts, olives, sliced s parmesan)
Entree: Bolognese (al dente style fresh 'morning made' pasta), generous tomato sauce
Dessert: pistachio/chocolate cake (yum!), and fresh baked cookie and ice-cream (decadent/delicious). Can take some time to make so allow ample time, min 15 minutes for it to be served (and it was a slow day).

Service: First rate
Ambiance: Ample umbrellas
View: so close to the water, you can feel it. One of the best and hidden secret, views to date.
Parking: Valet ($10 for 3 hours, $20 for 3+ which they don't play, we were 15 min over and charged us $20 per car but at the time it didn't matter because we were so blissed out with the meal and dining experience. There's are parking across the street for $10 ,but we didn't intend on staying so long.

Service was not great, it appeared like they only had one waiter for the outside tables. Additionally, our reservation was for 7:30 pm but we were seated up until 8:10pm. They have a breath taking view but their food was pretty bland (Minus the truffle fries)
