    The food here was good ( we both had the rabbit), but not great. Our shrimp cocktail was small - 4 shrimp, a little crab - and it looked even smaller served on a big plate! What was really bad was the noise level- for a place that looks like it could be a "fine dining" establishment, the noise level was comparable to a bar or pub! Maybe some carpet would help to absorb the noise. We wanted to eat quickly and leave!

    First time at this restaurant for all four of us. The service was great. Attentive but not intrusive, friendly and helpful when we had questions. This is a good place to go for dishes that you probably would not find elsewhere. Both the menu and the wine list are short compared to many other restaurants but the selections are diverse and creative. We had (jerked chicken and salmon) the portions were ample in size, well prepared, tasty and to everyone's liking. We shared the cheese and meat board appetizer which I would highly recommend. It had several different kinds of sausage prepared in house, 4 cheeses, kim chee that leans to the sweet side, glazed nuts, local honey and other items that I do not recall. We will be back.

    This was our third time dining at Malone's. So far, everything we have tried was great. A small intimate setting, the wait staff is good. We were there for Restaurant week and had some new, very interesting things on the menu. I had rabbit, which I hadn't ever tried before. Very good. My daughter had the goat.. excellent.

    The restaurant was nice with friendly service however the steak was typical nothing extraordinary. The food was not worth the $90+ bill for me and my wife. Everyone was nice however there was some noise and commotion going on at the bar that distracted from our quiet evening out.

    We were quite pleased with both the venue and food. Service was excellent. We ate inside for dinner, although patio dining was an option. Casual dress acceptable. Prices a little on the high end, but OK for a special occasion or a quiet evening out. No annoying or loud music, so conversation was possible. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Looking forward to trying brunch next time.

    A cozy, unique and romantic restaurant for any occasion, night or day. Located in an historic church of Manassas. Lovely atmosphere, gourmet and exquisitely prepared cuisine, the staff and setting are extremely charming. A fabulous choice to take your friend for lunch while antiquing or your honey for a romantic evening.

    this was our first dinner at Malone's and as a party of six of course made reservations. It was also a birthday celebration. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. However they didn't do anything special for the birthday celebrant even though it was saud beforehand, except a sign saying happy birthday. Also the restaurant is very noisy. Besides those two things it is a lively neighborhood restaurant to try especially for a nice night out

    We went on a Sunday and practically had the place to ourselves. Our entrees were the low country shimp and high-concept pork and beans; both were fantastic. We split a board of homemade pates and sausage with local cheeses as an appetizer. If there was a weak point, it was dessert (creme brulee and pear bread pudding) but even that was better than average. Ambiance was nice. Well worth the trip to Manassas.

    We hadn't been to Malone's in over a year but we were glad we came back. The food was very good and the service was perfect. The server pick a bottle of wine for us which was a big hit among the table. The salmon appetizer and the mussels appetizer were delicious and I would order them again. Our only complaint, and not really a complaint, is, we wish there was more fresh seafood entrees. It was a really good dinner and we will be back soon. The new patio is beautiful.

    A group of 4 of us went to Malone's for the first time over the weekend. It was very quiet for a Saturday night, but that was probably due to the holiday weekend. The wine selection was nice and the food was nicely prepared. The menu was small, but with a creative selection of steak, chicken, seafood, salads and pasta. The duck, filet, shrimp and grits, and mashed potatoes were all very tasty and are all highly recommended! We ended our meal with coconut cream pie and a Congo bar. I've had better bars, but loved the coconut cream pie. Very unique and delicious!

    This was my 2nd visit to Malones Restaurant. From the moment we entered the restaurant until we left, we were treated like family. Our server couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, from helping us select a wine to asking the kitchen not to include kale in the salad because one of us mentioned that we didn't like kale. The menu is small, but varied, with an emphasis on seasonal vegetables. My filet was one of the best steaks I've had anywhere, and the green beans that came with the steak were exceptional. I will definitely be returning to Malones soon.

    We started our meal off with a Chefs Smorgasbord, which consisted of some very tasty and unusual meats and cheeses. Our party of three ordered Hot and Sour Beef, Pork Ravioli and Jerk Chicken. All were very good, but the Jerk Chicken could have used more jerk seasoning, it was rather bland. The restaurant was cozy and our server was perfect. We look forward to visiting again.

    According to our server, they have been open for less than a year and are already expanding, so they may have been having an off night, but we are not eager to return. Our steaks were badly trimmed and poorly prepared. Everything else was loaded with oil and salt. We ended up taking most of the meal out in boxes and trashing it on the way back to the car as the server was so nervous and flustered we felt bad sending it back. Aftermath was headaches and indigestion.

    I give 4 star because the prices were a little high for the Manassas Old Town area. I know Manassas Old Town is becoming nicer every day but this was a bit of a jump in a price range that I have seen. We will definitely be back to Malones. The food and the service was amazing.

    Food was great, wait staff was attentive. ISSUE - Went for our 19th wedding anniversary. As a surprise my wife called the restaurant and asked if they did anything special for anniversaries. The lady my wife spoke with said they would notify the staff to greet us one seated, a card would be placed on our table, and dessert would say Happy Anniversary. Needless to say none of this happened. By the end of the meal I could see my wife's disappointment and this is when I learned of the plan. I spoke to the on duty manager, who also took my wife's call, and she admitted to offering this. Said she would check into it and get back to us. Never did. Owner pushed back and had no concern. Not once did they take ownership of the issue or apologize.

    We went because we had driven passed and was curious. It is a small restaurant and it filled up fast. (We got there just after opening). Even after they got busy the service was great. But I admit the gem of the dinner was the food - the bacon in particular. According to our waiter the chef preps and smokes his own bacon on site. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. Can't wait to go back.

    We needed a good place for dinner in the Manassas area, on short notice, and Malone's fit the bill perfectly. While the primary dining area is not very big, our reservation for 6 was handled perfectly (actually they accommodated a time change about an hour before arrival...which was great). The food was excellent, the vibe fun and casual. From parents to kids, no one left unhappy...just wishing we'd left room for dessert.

    I took my date here for a sweet romantic dinner between us and it was perfect. We sat on the lower level, and although we were in complete formal attire, we were not bothered by the bar next to us. It didn't take away from the atmosphere at all, but added a mature liveliness to it. The interior is absolutely charming and the service was great. I would recommend checking out their online menu before making reservations because the menu is limited, but they have (in my opinion) very good choices. Be prepared to pay around $70 for 2 without desert. I got the salmon which was very delicious and the perfect proportion to fill me up. The restaurant was elegant with a fun, rustic vibe. The atmosphere will win just about anyone over.

    I rely on Open Table to find me new and wonderful places to dine, and Malones fit the bill perfectly. It is a very small restaurant, housed in what appears to be the lower level of an old church. The hostess told us the upper level, where the church used to hold services, is being renovated to be another restaurant owned by the same folks who own Malones. My party was there for brunch and one thing I loved about Malones menu was that it offered a good selection of both breakfast and lunch entrees. I truly had trouble deciding what to eat. All the food we ordered was delicious. We will be back.
