“Spectacur”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

How else can one describe this restaurant with beautiful panoramic view of the ocean. Location is perfect: Malibu. Most of the time I come here at sunset time. It is spectacular.I like that Chart house restaurants have similar menu. I always know what to expect there. I tried a lot of different dishes but I have my favorite dishes: Crab stuffed mushrooms and and Baked stuffed shrimp. It is so wonderful to sip wine and watch the ocean. Very romantic and elegant. I like valet parking too. Prices are reasonable.

““Excellent service, fantatsic food and incredible location””
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We dined at The Chart House this past weekend with several business associates and their wives’ on a recent business trip to L.A... We ate there on a Saturday night at 7pm. Our window table was ready when we arrive and the night was perfect from that point on. The restaurant welcomed us at the valet as well as the hostess waiting at door. We had a variety of selections from the menu, all were superbly presented and the meals were excellent. We also enjoyed several bottles of great chardonnay and a merlot from their excellent wine list. The cappuccino and desserts were a spectacular finishing touch for the evening. The staff was extremely proficient and professional. All the restaurant staff could not have been more polite and friendly throughout the night. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and we did not feel cramped but rather cozy with the ability to have good conversation. We have placed the Chart House on our "definite return list” for our next visit to Los Angeles. We highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a 1st Class evening on the town in the L.A. area. (It's a bit of a drive but well worth it)

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Four of us visited Dec 26, 2012. Very reasonable happy hour prices and well-structured cocktails. Beautiful window table, excellent entrees (each of us ordered a different entree), very informed wait staff and superb atmosphere--our first return visit in many years, wish we lived closer.

“Very Good Experience, Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We got to this restaurant just as it opened at 11:30, so there were very few people in the place at the time, and thus, we got an excellent seat and personal attention. The food was very good, but a little pricey. The waiter was excellent and we got to watch a man paddle boarding on the ocean. You have to pay to park on their property, but you pay to park everywhere in the LA area. We also ate at Duke's and the two restaurants are very similar.

“Spectacular view to accompany great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

A romantic view of the Pacific to pair with a good wine list and great food. It does not get much better than this. Sunset is the best time to enjoy the view.
