I live in Malibu and went to Malibu and Vine for the first time last summer to experience their wine bar and the live music. I enjoyed the experience and the lovely setting. However, it was only recently that I found out about the great chef. My husband and I had dinner there last week. The food was terrific and the staff was incredible. It was a little dark coming in at night and we suggested that they brighten the place up on the outside since it is easy to drive past it. Definitely worth giving it a try, I know we will be back again soon for sure!
