My friend is all about the new trendy food joints and she begged me to come here with her because I guess they did some remodeling? Anyways, I personally have never heard of Gladstones, but I'm always up for an adventure. Two words: Really Good!! If I had known more about this place prior, I would've gone willingly. My friend was nice enough to cover my meal because she was so thankful she didn't have to eat alone. I got the fish and chips and later, because the food was so delicious, we both ordered the jumbo sized crab legs. So good!!! My mother is from Hawaii and she was always about cooking seafood. The crab legs were better than my moms. Sorry mom! I never say that, but in this case I have to. If and when my mother visits me again, I'm definitely taking her here. I can only imagine what their other food tastes like. I hope to find out soon!

Gladstones is my favorite seafood and beach bar/restaurant. I always go here on weekends for lunch with my little girl. The view is spectacular on any day. We get a window table inside if the weather is cold. On sunny days an umbrella table on the patio is a must. When it comes to food, it's amazing... we love, love their Clam chowder (it's simply the best in town), Fish and chips and Macadamia rock shrimp We enjoy the food, the view and foil wrapped leftovers. Last Saturday it was a foil wheal we took home with us. Here are the reasons why we keep going to this place: good for groups, great for brunch, great for outdoor dining, kid-friendly, romantic, special occasion, scenic view.
I stopped by Gladstones a few weeks ago after a particularly pleasant outing to the Getty. I was on a date and wanted to impress and the restaurant picked right up where the museum had left off: classy and sophisticated, killer views and quiet and intimate atmosphere. It's easy to get swept away by the views of the sunset and Malibu, but I must say our food and entire dining experience were top notch as well. I had the Salmon Cartoccio and she loved the Spiced Crusted Tuna. Great service, awesome food and a hell of a location for any outing, but definitely for a successful date ;)
