Point me in the Savory Direction


Savory Malibu is a modern bistro with a gastronomic attitude. Perched on a knoll on Heathercliff Road and adjacent the infamous hidden bohemian surfer community of famed Point Dume is the home of Malibu’s newest dining concept that has plenty of style, grace & elegance as well as enough chutzpah to rival other better known established Malibu restaurants on the nearby power-block of Pacific Coast Highway. Savory supports living and buying locally and they also make it a point to embrace neighboring Malibu wineries as well as farmers markets up and down the coast from Ventura to Santa Monica.

Besides having a Fresh approach to quality ingredients, Savory pays homage to its New American bistro roots, while infusing a bit of old world European flare into its menu and any LA dining enthusiast would see the direct correlation to Escoffier and his classic Nouvelle cuisine on the bistros expansive menu.

A recipe for Savory’s success is the restaurants rising talent; Michelin Star Chef Paul Shoemaker with past residencies at two of Los Angeles’ provincial eateries, Providence and Bastide. His classically trained French influences are translated and reinterpreted for today’s laid back California diner who appreciates a taste of the good life.

Of equal importance is the mixology program from General Manager Sammy Espinoza that features 8 specialty cocktails in active rotation. We suggest the Mission Fig Infused Manhattan & Zeroz California “Surf” inspired Moscow Mule.

For the local wine enthusiast sip on pours from many of Malibu’s neighboring vineyards including Semler & Saddlerock.

No matter what you fancy you are guaranteed to find a plethora of menu items to indulge in, ranging from bar bites to savory entree delights. The pizza dough recipe dates back 350 years from Napoli and the topping combinations evoke rustic native Italian flavors.Malibu residents can now avoid hours sitting in traffic on the way to Mario Batali’s Mozza.

For those in need of a Crustacean fix, the Dungeness Crab Cake will satisfy your every craving.

Other notable dishes are the Duck Confit, the “Fresh Catch” Hamachi-Miso Bowl and the Wolfmother burger that will give Father’s Office and Umami Burger a run for its money.

As you can see, Savory Malibu has it all. Where else in Malibu can you get: Mixology, artisan
local wines and a Michelin Star Chef? Request Table 17 for a Sunset view and some fun people watching while sipping on some Italian Moscato and tasting the sweeter side of Savory with their ever changing and evolving pastry menu all made fresh daily.
