Malabar American Cooking
Always great food, good serviceHave dined at Malabar many times and never disappointed. Most recently took my entire family for a graduation dinner. Reservation was ready at the appointed time despite restaurant obviously being full. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and Sherry our server handled the large group (ages 16-80) very well. Reasonable prices too. Total tab with pre-added in tip for large group was about $270, including liquor. Excellent value, very happy.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Malabar. Our server was absolutely great and the food was very good. We will definitely be back! Also loved the decor and the ambience created. Very enjoyable!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic AmericanFirst time going to Malabar, and it was a pleasant experience. I went with a larger group with a couple of kids, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. Had a bit of a miscue with the cooking of a pork chop, but that was quickly taken care of at no expense and a couple free beers. The desert selections were also extremely good. I would definitely go back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWHA LunchIt has been several months since I went to Malabar for lunch. Greatly improved since that time.

Service wasn't quite as efficent and slow.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch was for three people.Lunch was for three people. This is a good place to get a chance to visit without being overwhelmed by noise. Tables were set adequately apart to avoid crowding. Service was superior and prompt. Two of the group had pulled pork sandwiches and garlic mashed potatoes which they enjoyed. The soup and sandwich combo was just fair. Tortilla soup was watery and tortillas already soggy on arrival. The tuna melt with avocado didn't have a lot of flavor although it was to be on parmesan bread. Ranch dressing for the fries was OK, but not a great flavor. Prices were reasonable for lunch. Probably would go again just for the ambiance and service, but try something different in the way of meal.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were sat next to a tablewe were sat next to a table that was having a birthday celebration, which if we had reservations we kinda exspected a little more preparedness..... they were a big croud and there were other tables we could have been set at. still love this resturant and will be coming back over and over i just think someone failed seating us where they did with enough heads up by having reservations, we were 2 couples on our first outting together and introducing the other couple to one of our favorite spots, but way too loud and distracting for the dinner get together we were wanting ...3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSo nice to have a vegan menu!So nice to have a vegan menu!
