First time to Malibu - where to eat?

We are visiting malibu for the first time and have heard so many diff recommendations for dinner.....The sunset, Sage Room, Gladstones,Nobu (although have heard this is overrated), Geoffreys to name a few.....we have rented a house so plan on making most meals but do want to go out for a couple. If there is one place to go where would that be? Also, any good pizza delivery? Thanks!!

Location...location....location

and a certain amount of crazy Hollywood history as well.

We've seen porpoises swimming during dinner.

Is it the best food? No.

But its one of those places to say you've been.

Go for drinks and appetizers at least...

If you are into game eating, the restaurant in Malibu Canyon is good:

Saddle Peak Lodge - Good food.

Geoffrey's we like for brunch....but its a mixed bag. I would not put it at the top of your list to go to....although we have enjoyed it.

Well for Pizza it's D'amores. They deliver. What area of Malibu is your house. Sage is excellent,. I would try Tra de Noi and Guidos also for the best food. There's a new steak house here now. Charlies. Very nice.

We are staying pretty close to Zuma Beach. I also heard about a sushi place closer to here, Zooma sushi that is supposed to be good.

Skip Gladstones, don't bother.

But definitely Tra di Noi, Nobu and I love Barrel, a small wine bar but has great food.

Shouldn't everyone at least visit the iconic Paradise Cove? We had great fun there and it's right on the beach.

Also great for beach view, sunset and seeing wildlife is Dukes. We whooped it up on the small outdoor patio and had the best time. Mostly drinks and appitizers but it was a beautiful day and we could see forever.
