Geoffrey's Malibu

Let the drive along PCH be your amuse-bouche, prepping your palate for Geoffrey's upscale surf and turf touched with Cal, Med, and Asian influences. (Tempura soft shell crabs come with yuzu vinaigrette while filet mignon gets a Cabernet sauce.) Knock-out cliff-top Pacific views and formally-attired servers make this the go-to for birthday celebrations, third dates, and the popping of questions over mammoth Maine lobsters. Then again, the fresh sea air and that Malibu glow that the diners all seem to share keeps the vibe relatively casual and unpretentious.

Geoffrey's brunch offerings are even more extensive than the dinner menu--including specialties like challah French toast, lobster quiche and crab cake Benedict.

sweet seats

Make an early reservation to catch the sunset. Ask to sit on the patio -- most tables are outside, where the heat lamps will keep you warm on cool nights.
