We are locals and just love this place. Greg and Kristy are hands-on owners and make sure everyone leaves happy. Food is creative and delicious. Yes you can get burgers and gourmet pizzas, but we usually go for the nightly special or salmon. Great ambiance and we love the ocean-view deck. Our favorite place to eat in Malibu.

Fabulous restaurant, friendliest service and beautiful location. The food was great too!! Our patio table had a lovely view of the coast line and the wonderful gardens surrounding the restaurant.

My wife and I were cruising thru Malibu. Every place was jammed with people. The traffic was unbelievable. We saw a sign for this place on top of a bluff. Place is pricey. 31.00 for 2 cocktails. Plus valet parking only. It looked like everyone was having burgers. They we huge.

I was very underwhelmed by Kristy's after reading all of the rave reviews online. I ordered the burger, and it definitely was not worth the $22 I paid for it. It was dry and my bun was burnt. I did enjoy the onion maple jam on it though. I had a bite of my husband's chicken breast which was delicious.... More

We had a very nice lunch at Kristy's. It has a steep short driveway to get to the parking of the hotel/restaurant and, it is worth it. The view is amazing! We had a nice table and good service. A very good option if you are in the area.

We had calamari which was light and tasty but there could of been a few more on the plate. The personal pan pizza was average, nothing to brag about. But the view was fantastic!

Went here for a birthday dinner. Our first time at this restaurant. We sat outside on the patio. View was fantastic as we watched the sunset. Staff was friendly and service was great. Our food and the wine were delicious. No complaints at all

Went there early Sunday morning; we were the first customers. So we had the place to ourselves from start to finish. Food is great; and the serving is huge. I can see why parking can be tricky during peak hours. There is a lovely garden leading to the restaurant where certain tables have a nice view of the beach. If... More

Great food but: We had to send the steak back because it wasn't medium rare We were over-charged for drinks (Bloody Marys) and when we asked about it, 'the menu is out of date' Website doesn't mention valet mandatory parking on weekends Four people (one round of drinks, brunch, valet parking, tip) : $200. Good thing the view is good.
