The chef said that it took two months to reserve a table by the ocean. Omakase menu is cheaper and more delicious than the one in Hollywood.

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football

We arrived around lunch time, and did not require a reservation. Although of note it was not high season for tourists in Malibu, hence they were very busy, but not at a point that everyone required a reservation.
