We booked a few months in advance and they only had a 6pm sitting available for our group of 6. Be prepared to spend a lot (we spent >$100 per person including drinks), but know that it's worth it. The food was amazing, and the...More

Beautiful spot to enjoy a meal and some drinks. All staff was very friendly. Lots of vegetarian options to choose from. However for the price I do not feel like it was worth it. It was nothing over the top.

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
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

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.
