We stopped in for lunch on our way to the airport by recommendation of another customer. Dress is casual if desired, although a wedding party was sitting next to us and dressed to the max. The staff is quick to get you started and quite friendly on our visit. They help each other run foods out to tables which is... More

We had a wonderful window seat right next to the ocean and enjoyed some good conversation. The food was very average and it took a long time to get our food. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had grilled halibut with a fruit salsa and rice. The meal was very dry and bland in my opinion. One member... More

After finishing up my business with a customer in the LA area, I headed out to Santa Monica and then on to Malibu, to see the ocean and take in the sights. I ended up stopping at Duke’s for dinner with a view. What a great choice! I was seated at a table right on the ocean side- the ocean... More

We returned to Duke's for lunch after many years absence since we moved out of the LA area. It's still a great place to have lunch - worth waiting in the bar for a four-top table overlooking the ocean. Our Irish server, Laura, was fabulous - great personality and fast with food and drinks. We had the herb and parmesan... More

What an amazing dinner. Great food with outstanding service and a table right at the water's edge. The service was efficient and friendly with everything prepared exactly as ordered. The restaurant combines a casual nature with service and presentation expected in a higher end (and stuffier) setting. This is a great place for friends, family, and lovers. No complaints --... More

Visited the Barefoot Bar for late afternoon drinks and a bite after a visit to the Getty Villa. Mai tai was really good and seared ahi tuna tacos as well. Bar was packed. The outside patio was full so we had to sit inside the bar, but the windows were open and there was a great breeze. Prices were refreshingly... More

Went for lunch. Servers were really friendly and prompt. Got a table at the window and could see the surf crashing on the rock wall. Great rolls & onion soup to start, then excellent fish tacos and fish & chips. Nice atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon; the bar area was very inviting; nice little patio on the side. Wish we... More

Went to Sunday brunch with the girls and expected a mediocre food experience with a marvelous view! Got a great food experience with an even better view! Service was great, food was like being at a luau in Hawaii with more choices and how can you beat the Cali Coast view? Go early to get a good seat! YUM!
