If you are debating on this location for your rehearsal dinner, stop right now and book it before it's too late! The was, by FAR, one of the biggest hits of our entire wedding. Since we had our ceremony & reception at Calamigos Ranch, we really wanted to incorporate the beach into the weekend since most of my family isn't from CA. Needless to say, it was the PERFECT choice.Sent on 11/12/2014
Not only could our friends & fam not stop talking about the food, but the views and the fresh ocean breeze circulating throughout the room was what made it the most memorable. Not to mention, they were so accommodating with dietary restrictions and food choices. Hint: get the salmon. To this day, my family still does not stop talking about that salmon! Some have even talked about flying out from NY just to eat that dish again!!!
I had bought a bunch of nautical decor, place cards, and picture frames that I was worried about setting up before the guests arrived. Well, guess what? The Sunset Restaurant set everything up beautifully! I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in the room! Now THAT is amazing service.
It's not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for. Amazing views, a gorgeous room, impeccable service, and most importantly; lasting memories that will be talked about forever!

Had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Sunset Restaurant! Had 160 people and they accommodated them all in the side room and patio outside! The bar was fantastic, and food was amazing! All so fresh and tasty! We also had the Sunday Brunch after the Wedding at the Sunset and people were absolutely in awe of how beautiful it was. The event staff is amazing and takes a lot of the stress off of the bride and groom:) Thank you The Sunset Restaurant for being the dream come true for our wedding week!!Sent on 07/14/2016

We had a wonderful experience at this venue and I would highly recommended it for any event. We hosted my mother-in-law's 60th birthday party (it was a surprise) and everything went smoothly. The views and the venue are priceless and I would definitely go back for another event.Sent on 07/03/2016
Great service and attention to details for all their clients. From: Elegant Parties OC
As a Videographer of all kinds of weddings in southern California... a well done beach wedding can't be beat. The Sunset in Malibu has the unparalleled ability to be a VERY SPECIAL PLACE for the dazzling upscale wedding as well as that delicious smaller affair. The sand and the water and the proximity of the Sunset Restaurant is perfect... I should know, I have shot many weddings here. (As well, this is where I love to come and chill out at the end of the day... it is so beautiful and off the beaten path). The event team at the Sunset is super friendly and helpful... they will make this the wedding you've dreamed of. It's a truly wonderful spot. - Susan Metcalf Videography
Always a pleasure providing chuppahs for the Sunset Restaurant!
