You can have it all – a romantic setting, delectable cuisine, and gracious service – at The Sunset Restaurant. Set against the Malibu bluffs just steps away from Zuma Beach, The Sunset is housed in an updated classic beach bungalow. The two-story restaurant breathes with space and light thanks to its expansive front windows overlooking the Pacific.

Exchange your marriage vows right on the beach. As you walk down the velon aisle, a light breeze lifts your veil. Other elements further enhance this idyllic setting: sailboats drift across the horizon… the sound of the waves creates a soothing harmony with the music of your accompanist. Your guests are entranced, and the night has only just begun.

Next your guests move into your private outdoor lounge where they are warmly greeted with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Here they enjoy one of Malibu’s jewel-toned sunsets as you and your partner capture the incredible view on the beach. Following the cocktail hour, your party will continue in your reception hall recognized for its understated classic beach décor that can easily adapt to your own vision. Join us at The Sunset and your imagination is only the beginning.

If you are looking for a magical oceanfront wedding in Malibu, look no further - The Sunset Restaurant is it! We booked out the entire restaurant for our wedding ceremony and reception, and it was well worth it. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. This venue is fantastic. Event coordinator, Grace, was a joy to work with - she catered to our every need. Incredible!

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.

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!

We just had our wedding Rehearsal/Dinner at The Sunset. It was awesome! Their event manager Grace was phenomenal. She was so easy to work with, organized and professional. She made the process so easy, making this event one less thing to worry about when planning our wedding. The staff was also fantastic, the food was delicious, and the flow was seamless. And the location ... you really can't beat the location! They are located right on the sand, where we could watch the sunset over the water. Beautiful! We couldn't have asked for a better place to bring our guests from around the world. It gave them a true taste of Malibu, and was an unforgettable night.

We could not have imagined a more beautiful setting for our wedding. It was a clear, perfect day and we exchanged vows with the waves crashing beside us. And luckily, we walked in on a plank so I could wear heels! The event room is beautiful, and the sunset really does create a gorgeous backdrop with the windows facing the ocean. Mara, the event coordinator, was just great. She was responsive and flexible, and truly loves her work, which really shows. The food was great, the service was impeccable....we loved every minute of it. We will be back every year for our anniversary.

There is really no comparison if you are looking for a beautiful beach ceremony in the Los Angeles area. I searched and researched for awhile, and visited a few other comparable venues and found the Sunset to be the BEST by a long shot. First off, all the people you will deal with are extremely professional, helpful, responsive, and know what they're doing. I dealt with Annie pre-booking, and booking, and Mara leading up to the event. Mara worked it! She made so many last minute changes that I was even starting to get irritated with all of the changes but she (if she was) never lead on-just rolled with it and did it! They set up everything for you on the beach, beautiful wood chairs, wood platform and deal with all insurance, permits, clearing the beach (to the best of their abilities-I do have a few photo bombers but who can blame them!). The reception/cocktail hour is in their beautiful banquet room, one of the nicest originally we saw. Many venues will charge you extra for something like draped ceiling but Sunset has that in their room anyway. You also get the patio which is gorgeous and set up with heat lamps and beautiful patio furniture. Their basic inclusive meal is great, but you can switch out for a bit extra if you wish. Open bar (beer and wine) is included, well liquor is extra but very reasonable. On the day of the event, they were amazing to us and all our guests, and made everything run so smoothly, on time, and we got so many compliments from our guests at how wonderful everything was. The Sunset is an ideal beach wedding location for an actual affordable price-it's pretty amazing!

We could not have asked for a more wonderful venue for our wedding earlier this month. Working with Annie and Mara at the Sunset was a breeze. We live out of state and so planning can/could have been a big headache. They made it so easy. All the planning was done via phone/email/internet. They accomplished everything we were hoping for. We went with the all inclusive package and are so pleased with how it all turned out. The ceremony was right on the sand and was so lovely. The reception in the banquet room was beyond words. We had a very small intimate wedding and therefore chose not to have a lot of decorations but simple flowers and candles and let the room itself be our decorations. It was so beautiful. The white draping adds so much to the room you really don't have to do a lot to it. It overlooks the beach and the ocean that the scenery adds so much to the ambience. The dolphins swimming by are just an added bonus. We can not say thank you enough to Mara for all of her help the day of the wedding. Working with Mara was so easy. She helped make our wedding as wonderful as it was.

We just had our wedding at the Sunset restaurant and we cannot recommend the venue enough. Everyone was easy to work with and our day was increadible!!! Many of our guests even commmented that it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding. The beach is amazing, one of my favourites, so much so that we travelled from the UK with 70 of our friends to have our wedding there.

The organisation was impeccable and the value increadible. I would not change a single part of the day it was amazing and that was mostly due to the increadibe venue and staff.

Thanks again Mara and Annie and all the staff :)

The entire staff at this venu is AMAZING! They are very flexible with EVERYTHING. Our wedding was on 7/811 and ALL of our guest LOVED the location and the food. I'm glad we had our wedding here and look forward to going back there for dinner each anniversary.

Only drawback: They require a professional & certified day of coordinator. This was kind of a headache for me. If or once they bring in their own planning services, this will TRULY be the BEST wedding venu in all the world.
