Carbon Beach Club Restaurant (The Dining Room) @ Malibu Beach Inn Ratings and Reviews
I hadn't been to this restaurant in a few years since they had remodeled. I saw an article about a special they were having so I decided to come for dinner. The small dining area overlooked the ocean and malibu pier. The decor was nothing special but the view is wonderful. The flavors in all the dishes we tried were nothing memorable. I ordered the cacio e Pepe with shaved truffle and the truffle was flavorless. Very disappointing, especially since we paid extra for the shaved truffle. Yet the Truffle fries were very flavorful. The burrata tried too hard with too many flavors added. Which ruined it. My husband was actually upset that we wasted money coming here. Overall the meal was very forgettable and not worth the trip.
I felt the food quality and caliber was not worth the price they were charging. If you are charging Mastro and Nobu prices the quality better be there. Killer views, let's make the food match or lower the prices. Mastros seafood tower is half the price and 10 times the quality and presentation!
The wine list has been curated by Laurie and it offers outstanding
choices. The always offer tastes of wines and when they know their
customers they know our tastes and bring out wines we always love.
Food is consistently good.
The service is a bit slow at times but it is a plus since the view is
Reservation taken on open table for 4 in the afternoon for dinner-arrived at the restaurant and dinner menu was not until 530--after a lot of complaining they agreed to let us see the lunch menu-only gave us one menu should anyone else see us with the menu-very tacky-while sitting at our table in came another couple with the same problem-not handled well
The food here was simply excellent. Every bite. Can't recommend the meal highly enough. Wine, too, was very good. Wish they had remembered/noted it was my husband's 60th birthday, as I put in the reservation, but they did end up bringing the dessert we ordered with a candle on it. Service was very friendly but a little laissez faire at this price point. That was outweighed by the quality of the food, though, which was wonderful.
Chef Cody Dickey presents a lovely, healthy and light Mediterranean influenced meal. Fresh and seasonal ingredients are the basis of his cuisine. The sommelier really knows her wine and can make wonderful and knowledgeable recommendations. We enjoyed a delicious bottle of Rose which paired perfectly with The Seafood bowl (brimming with clams, mussels, white fish, baby octopi and the most gorgeous, plump prawns) as well as the salmon tartar, with a hint of spice and which featured salmon roe and baby purple potato chips. Our server was wonderfully attentive yet subtle.
A GREAT experience. We will return.
I am from out of town, so I selected this place because it had an ocean view and it was suggested on Open Table. The ocean view is beautiful. However, the food was so-so. The table settings outside are comparable to fast food restaurants, not what I would expect from a high end restaurant. Many of the food options that we viewed on Yelp and Open Table were no longer options because they "have a new chef." The menu is a limited selection (we went during lunch time) and none were exciting.
There was truly nothing impressive about this place.
The service was about a three and that's only because I witnessed the (better) service that another table received.
Valentine's day dinner was beautifully done! Everyone from the moment we were attended at the front drive to the moment we were inthe restaurant was genuinely courteous and highly professional. Big thanks to Laurie (sommelier) who was so accommodating with the wine selection that made the night extra special for my wife and I! Really top class!
We ordered the following dishes:
1) Grilled Octopus (Amazing)
2) Cacio e Pepe (Amazing)
3) Salmon (just ok)
4) Ricotta Fritters (Most Amazing)
Pricing is probably similar to Dukes, but the food is FAR better and the outdoor patio might be Malibu's best kept secret. We'll be back soon!
First time to this restaurant, located at the Malibu Beach Inn. The atmosphere is very nice. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is on a deck overlooking the ocean (they have heaters and blankets, if it gets chilly.) The indoor seating is limited enough that you can see the ocean from the large windows. This is the place for a romantic, special dinner. We went with friends and we all really enjoyed our meals. The food was excellent and well prepared. The food is good, but except to pay $35 and up for an entree. It's a very pricey dinner. Definitely special occasion worthy, but would have to rethink eating there very often, unless one has a hefty expense account.
Not a pleasant experience. Arrived at 230 for a 230 reservation. Was told by the hostess it would be an additional 30 minutes for an inside table or an hour for an outside table. We waited in the lounge at kdirty table for about 15 minutes with no service. Q
You literally eat outdoors above the Pacific at famous Carbon Beach.
Moreover, the cuisine is inventive and delicious. On this visit, our 87 year old Greek American guest proclaimed the fabulous calamari appetizer the best calamari he had ever had. High praise indeed from a venerable connoisseur of squid.
The Carbon Beach Club is a must when you need a PCH fix. Never disappointing. Actually, always exhilarating.
And everyone is welcoming and courteous. And it does feel like a club, intimate and special.
Waiter broke a glass at the table, which happens from time to time but didn't offer us any sparkling water to replace the glass he broke. The steak I ordered was tough and did not taste like a steak from a restaurant with a professional chef. My girlfriend got a salad that was all beet root and was not good. My girlfriend also didn't get silverware until our main course arrived. On a positive note, the view was nice and they had great calamari.
We were disappointed that they were understaffed and surprised that they didn't shut down their open table reservations; we would have preferred to try them another day when the service could have been better. However we will give it a second try because the outdoor patio view is spectacular and the servers were very gracious; if they'd only had enough of them to cover the entire restaurant. The food was average (linguine with clam sauce and a lobster roll). The dirty martini was not chilled enough and had too much olive juice and small (not cocktail) olives. We were also unlucky to be seated near two women who loudly discussed all of their health issues in detail - but this isn't the fault of the restaurant. We look forward to trying it another time. I know better than trying a restaurant for the first time during the holiday season but it was our wedding anniversary and we'd hoped for a romantic lunch.
The setting was beautiful and we were lucky to have a perfect day. We sat inside as it was a tad cold. However, the service was unusually slow, as if they only had one waiter and 1 busser for the entire restaurant. He waiter seemed overwhelmed and it took over an hour to get our meal.
Ambiance is as good as it gets. My favorite dining spot at the beach. Even in the winter. They have heaters and blankets to keep guests warm. The food is delicious and they have an extensive wine list. Great for foodies and ocean lovers.
Malibu is out of my way, but in this case it was worth the drive. I was treating a friend for her birthday and thought I'd take her here. We were both absolutely delighted with the service, our meal, and the magnificent ocean view -- more than a just a view, really, as it was practically right at our feet. One MUST have the Calamari Strips, and the Sweet Potato Fries! I've had both of those many, many times in many other places... no comparison!! The Smoked Beets Salad was fantastic as well. It was a chilly night, but heaters and cozy blankets provided by the staff took care of that situation nicely. All in all.... awesome.
Very quiet night before thanksgiving. Prob best for summer day time visit. Bbq shrimp with corn bread was tasty. Wine list could have more reasonable options per bottle. Salad with shrimp was exactly what I wanted, healthy and hearty. Right off hotel lobby, prob many other dedicated restaurants to frequent if short on time. Probably would not return.
