    The food served in this establisment is dissapointing and tasteless, and for the price that you pay, I would expect much more. I ordered the crab cake, which tasted like the crab meat from a can, no flavor, with greens. My friend ordered a chicken salad that looked and tasted like something store bought for $6, very basic and bland. The chicken looked undercooked, as some pieces were pink in the middle, and cold. Lastly, I ordered the bananas foster, which wasn't bad, but was not good either. The bread wasn't warm and moist, more like just plain cake with bananas. The glass of wine from Ken Wright Cellars was probably the most enjoyable thing on the table. We won't be back, sorry.

    Lovely service, the most special birthday treat ,the chocolate marquis was worth the long ride........changing menu, but still concerned service and fabulous setting overlooking the ocean. SO looking forward to the "new" menu come September. Enjoyed the crab cake, chicken and farm grown tomato starter.

    They are a resort and can always allocate additional help if need. We waited at least 20 mins for our server to come over. We had to ask for the busboy to get him. And he didn't even apologize. He acted like nothing wrong with it.

    Visited for our anniversary. Service was a little rough at first - waiters didn't attend to us for first 15 minutes. After that, everything was good - except entrees came out before appetizers. They fixed it and everything was well afterwards. Food was very good.

    This ppty prides itself on seclusion and quiet elegance. Id say it meets that expectation. The requested lemon for my fish was two small wedge slices from the bar whereas a true five star dining establishment would have brought a lemon half with a cloth cover to strain seeds and provide sanitary use. Food was excellent service was adequate

    Our first time at Malcolm's (not 1st time dining at the Omphoy) was made very special by the priceless ocean view, the stellar service, and most importantly the wonderful meal. We were a group of 4 and the maitre'd gave us an amazing table by the window (about 3 stories up facing the ocean) and when we asked about ordering sushi from the downstairs sushi bar, we had no problem getting it even though it's not on the regular menu. We all shared a large sushi plate as well as squash blossoms for an appetizer, and ordered scallops as well as the oriental chicken salad. the shared desserts were chocolate cake and key lime pie, that, along with the setting sun darkening the ocean, was a perfect way to end the night.

    Very disappointed with the overall experience. 1: The hostess asking if we were going to be paying with vouchers, that came off as a bit frank but that by itself wouldn't have bothered me. 2: After ordering our champagne it was not left table-side and instead stored out of view and the waitress wasn't very attentive which led to my flute sitting empty for over 10 minutes. 3: they took our dinner order and then 45 mintues later the discourteous hostess came over to inform me that the kitchen was closing and that we'd need to order some food soon --to which I responded that maybe she should go and check where our food is since we already ordered. 4: Asked for my steak medium rare and it was medium well. Manager and chef apologized though.

    When you enter the restaurant you are greeted by a very lovely and friendly hostess (Marva) which sets the tone for your evening.The ambiance can't be beat and the food is very good. The service was excellent and our server, Kevin was knowledgeable, friendly and most of all very attentive. We have been to the restaurant on more than one occasion and have never been disappointed.

    Malcolm's had the most incredibly appetizing food! I started with the crab & avocado appetizer- AMAZING! My fiancé had the lamb chop which was so juicy! My entree was the filet Mignon and his was the NY strip steak, again they were both very good! For dessert I had the chocolate tower (sundae) and he had the pecan pie which were both delicious! The food was great, the service was excellent, and the ambience was beautiful by the ocean and romantic with the blue uplighting! Definitely recommend!

    We've had a very enjoyable dinner. The scallops and snapper were excellent. The wine list is a bit complicated and to large. Those waiters have been trained. Tim was very friendly and efficient. The prices are a bit high, mostly the wine but we've had a very nice time. It was a great ending of my birthday. Thank you.

    This restaurant is a beautiful gem. The Omphoy hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous and Malcolm's carries that hip, sheek look right along with it. The atmosphere is relaxed but formal and the food is superb. The items on the menu are adventurous enough for foodies but not scary for everyone else. The waitstaff had overheard that it was my fiancé and I's anniversary and gave us our desserts for free. It wasn't expected but certainly appreciated. The over all experience was very pleasent, we will definitely go back.

    I selected this restaurant because several people had said it had the best view --- NOT -- there is NO view unless they are talking about the room decor -- which was dark. Waiter was terrible, had to ask to order cocktails and he never came back for a second one -- we had to practically beg for one! Men ordered fish and said it was worst fish they'd had the whole trip! Highlight of the meal was the free-range chicken.....

    You need to try this trendy "South Beach" Restaurant not in Miami, but in Palm Beach, Fl. The decor of the hotel and restaurant is very much "boutique" similar to an upscale South Beach hotel. However, the service and the food is distincly better. The waiter was very attentive, without being over bearing. He recommended the fish special which was Tile fish over soba noodles, with several greens in the dish....it was fantastic ! The wedge salad and the lamb chop appetizers were equally good. Highly recommend the key lime pie.

    Had a belated Valentine's night dinner here. Split a large expensive Caesar salad. It was fine. It used only white romaine, so we didn't know if that was supposed to be special or just not as appealing as dark or mixed greens. I had a generous portion of swordfish which was confusing, as it was served with curried cauliflower and a tomato salsa. The 2 didn't work on the same plate. My husband had shrimp pesto on risotto. It was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Bread was not refilled, nor was the hot water for a $5 single cup of tea. The lighting is very unflattering with an ocean view blocked by darkened windows. It is definitely on the expensive side and there was not even a mint on the way out! Will not be returning.

    The name's a bit strange, it's as dark as Hernando's Hideaway, and almost as difficult to find, but well worth it. Our filet mignon was outstandingly delicious! The free range chicken was one of the best ever eaten. Lamb chops as an appetizer were a surprising treat, especially the garnish of taboulleh grains and yogurt. Sides are interesting and large enough to share. Service was attentive and caring. Very romantic spot, but great for groups too!

    Malcom's gives a new "out of the box" meaning to "hotel food". While we usually avoid hotel restaurants for dinner, this place is not to be missed. We've eaten here twice now, first with another couple and most recently alone, and the food and service are outstanding. The crab and avocado salad was full of white chunk crab, and was delightful. The unique spin on the caprese salad (had a special name) was also fantastic, and our steaks were prepared perfectly. My wife loves the key lime pie and finished every bit of it, which is also very rare. Jesse, our waiter, although very busy this night, was attentive and provided great service. This place needs to be experienced to fully appreciate what words may fall short in describing.

    This restaurant opened in the space previously occupied by Michelle Bernstein's at the Omphoy Hotel. The room is stunning - dark browns with recessed lavender colored lights. The meal started out shakily, as it took nearly a half hour for the sommelier to announce he could not locate the wine we ordered. The staff recovered nicely though by offering us a much more expensive bottle at the same price. After that, everything was perfect. All appetizers and entrees were prepared to each guests' wishes and were delicious. The menu was extensive,offering something for any taste. We will definitely eat here again the next time we are in the area.

    Not great, not bad--we stay at the Omphoy hotel 3 times a year and usually bring our own dinner items as the hotel doesn't have the greatest options but the ambiance is what draws us back. This was our second try at Malcoms. I stick to a vegan diet and my partner is gluten/dairy free. On this occasion she had filet minion and I, lacking any real options minus the salad, opted simply for an order of home fries. Her dish was "tasteless" and the menu didn't specify the sides on her ordered steak but it arrived with cheese covered fennel and some other cream based slop. Service was very attentive mad problem fixed immediately and happily. The fries were lackluster.

    New chef, very limited menu of average quality, poor management, exorbitant wine list not matched by the food - nothing notable in the $50 to $100 /bottle range. Why would anyone spend $2000 for a bottle of rare Bordeaux while eating neighborhood joint level food? Does not "walk the walk". If you liked Michelle Bernstein's, you're not going to like this.
