Description: In a world where landmarks are few and far between there is Gladstones...
In a world where landmarks are few and far between there is Gladstones. Situated where Sunset Boulevard meets the Pacific Coast Highway, it's become a place of Southern California legend. Gladstones offers a menu plucked from the very ocean it overlooks, serving modern renditions of classic dishes. In its typically relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, there's something to satisfy every palate. Whether you're at the raw bar, the lounge, the dining rooms or the grand patio over-looking the surf, it's commonly agreed there's no better place, either up the coast or down, to enjoy fresh seafood, a Mai Tai or a sunset. Over the last 40 years Gladstones has become a South California landmark. One visit and you'll see why.

Meh...

The things that made Gladstones in Malibu fun are gone. Due to folks with peanut allergies, they no longer offer peanuts, whose shells used to cover the floor of the restaurant. Service was friendly, but not very good. The decor is more casual than ever. Many booths have been removes and bare... read more

We have visited this restaurant once before several years ago & had pleasant memories so thought we'd try it again while we were in the area. We visited here for a late lunch midweek & had excellent meals, along with excellent service. Our waiter (Alejandro) could not have been better, available to assist us in our menu choices and ready... More

Went here with my family for dinner, specifically with seafood in mind. We were delighted with everything--the food, the service, the atmosphere. The crab cakes were some of the best that I have ever had anywhere in the U.S., though expensive. We had the clam bake, and it was excellent, too, and a lot of fun. Our server was great--very...

We had dinner here recently and we were fortunate enough to have James as our server. We could have been at a 5 Star establishment in New York. Great service, great view and great food. Cant wait to go back!

I ordered a sea food mix. Got a huge plate with huge shrimps and lots of food but the food was not good at all. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good also. It is not the kind of restaurat that i will visit again. I give it 3 stars only because the low price, good service and nice location.

This was a nice place to have a quick meal as our flight was delayed. The service and staff was very nice! The food was good. We had the cinnamon French toast which was delicious.

We had an AMAZING dinner enjoying Gladstone's new menu!!! It is very difficult for me to go out to eat with my multiple food allergies to latex gloves, shellfish, rice, and pine nuts. After alerting the staff of my allergies the Executive Chef Jason Hanin came to talk to me about my allergies, which I never have had happen ever!!!... More

Stopped through here for Lunch on a 65 degree day and have nothing but positive things to say. Service was great and the food was good. I definitely would stop through again the next time I'm in town.
