Food was delicious and the service was impeccable! Highly recommend to anyone looking for delicious meal with an oceanside view.
We enjoyed a birthday celebration on the coast with family and friends. Dukes was perfect for this event.
Worst service I ever had, food was crap !!!! I was very disappointed with the host service and the way they handled everything !
Wonderful food and a great view of the ocean!
Enjoyed the experience, the food was good, we were seating outside and it was not too loud. A beautiful view of the ocean. There is only valet parking, $10 - kind of annoying. But otherwise, had a great time.
Amazing! Coming back again for sure!
Great as always, no complaints at all. Except for the valet which is probably a private company. He opened the car door for my son and another for his girlfriend but not for the handicapped Mom? My son wound up doing it thank you. Won’t stop us from returning to fabulous Duke’s 👍🏻
Great service and food, not as crowded as I was expecting and nice outdoor view
Hope they get the menu back to where it was 5 years ago.
My wife and I have been to Duke’s in Kauai, La Jolla, and now Malibu. Same great food and always amazing views! Definitely call ahead for a reservation if you want to be outside as Malibu has a small patio.
Great meal, great location and excellent staff!
We had a terrific experience! At first, we were seated away from the window so it was hard to see the waves. When we asked if we could move to a window table, we only had to wait a few minutes and then our server moved us. Loved the food as usual and the service was excellent!
Loved the service, got there an hour earlier and helped us right away. The food was delicious and very fast service.
Second time here always love the ambiance, service and food here! Thank you for the free ice cream cake for my mom’s bday!
Great burgers, fresh fish was delish, sat by the water, gorgeous night, birthday celebration, yummy hula pie, and our server was awesome! Couldn’t have asked for a better night, thank you!
One humble request is for Duke’s to add non-alcoholic beer back on their menus please. All else very good. Thanks
Exceeded expectations. Great food, good service and nice ambiance.
Friend’s visiting from out of state. The food was enjoyable and view lovely. Perfect spot to show off the Malibu coast.
As usual, food and ambiance were great. Hostess was friendly. My only complaint, is that our server was not really on top of things.
Had a great time...we were not seated right away because we came a little early than our reservation, but they asked me 3x for my name before we get seated. While walking to our table, the lady asked if we are celebrating anything - and I told her its our anniversary. Then we were seated, very nice view! Food is great - the halibut is delicious. We enjoyed our food - Loco Moco and Coconut Shrimp...We ordered Hula Pie for dessert, and was surprised how huge it was, it was very good and our waitress is very nice and said that its our anniversary pie :) that was nice of her...i gave her $30 tip just because she is very nice....:) we will be back....we will try the Dukes in Kauai next month :)
Great location - food is excellent. As you might imagine it’s definitely on the expensive side.
Malibu restaurants can be a nig
First time here. The view was amazing. Our waitress was great. The only not so good was the food i ordered. Ahi tuna something … the rice taste like it was cooked yesterday, warmed up and serve it. Very hard, dry and not fresh. Picture attached.
We are regulars at Duke's -- for a midweek dinner, Saturday lunch, Sunday brunch, and many special occasions such as birthdays and graduations. Duke's has long been our local go-to restaurant for simple but important reasons: beautiful location, excellent service, excellent food. We are never disappointed!
Food great, service great, wine great, ambience great
Our severs Katie and Allegra were wonderful with Aloha, and also help us to move to another table…Aloha!
Unfortunately we arrived between lunch and dinner. Menu was just ok. The server was nice enough and the view was great. They did alter my dish for me. That was nice.
Amazing! Everything was absolutely perfect!
Great ambiance, perfect sized menu, great service. My ahi tuna bowl was excellent
We had out of town visitors! Love being at windows over looking ocean!
Didn’t like the fish wasn’t grilled on a grill for the fish tacos.
I would go back again. Thanks to LADine, we discovered a new place to dine over and over again.
We had a wonderful time at dukes. It was my husbands birthday and we had a super experience. We had a perfect table by the window to Easter the waves crash on the rocks. Was just amazing. The food and service was very good too. We have been there three times and never had a problem. Thank you for a joyful experience on my husbands birthday. We will be back again and again for sure. Thanks again
Great food and great ambience! We were blessed with a dolphins’ show for the whole meal!
My calamari was the best I've ever had... The macadamia crusted fish was very good... My wife's steak was grainy. Landon our waiter was awesome! Very personable and helpful. It was my daughter's birthday and the surprised use with ice cream cake, which was delicious and surprising. Thank you!
The food and service were good and the location is pretty. We had to wait quite a while even though we had a reservation and needed to talk to the manager who was helpful. The food was good and good portions and taste for the the cost. It was very noisy and took away from the relaxation of the ocean. We were outside so maybe was better inside.
