It was my girlfriend and I’s first anniversary. I’ve never gotten to experience this type of place. It was everything I was told and more. The jazz band was great and the food, drinks, and service were top notch. I’d recommend to anyone!

This place is gorgeous. Our reservation was for 7pm we came early and they seated us. All our food was perfect. My steak came out a little over done and I don’t like to complain, as soon as I cut into the steak our server stopped me and said “that’s not how you ordered it” took it away and gave us scallops while we waited. I wouldn’t have said anything But she went above and beyond and even the chef came out to make sure everything was good. Overall a great experience and we will be back !

Form the outside, it doesn’t look like much — but once you’re inside, wow. Every detail is seen to and the staff is attentive and professional. The tapas offerings were perfectly developed and executed and the wine pairings were well thought out. I eat at fine restaurants with great regularity, but this experience was truly one of the best. Well done!

I really enjoy LeMalt! If I could change anything there it would be the chairs/tables. The chairs are a bit too low and the tables are a bit to high to scale. Other then that the place is great!!

We had an early reservation on a very rainy Wednesday night. There was only one other table in there which I’m assuming was because of the weather and time, however worked out well for discussing business. I’m sure it is a full house on the weekends with a great lounge atmosphere and extensive list of liquor. The food menu is limited however we really enjoyed everything we had.

Wow! I waited three years to get there, and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was intimate and the food was outstanding. Our servers were very friendly and took good care of us. If you like Scotch, there are over 200 from which to choose. And who would have imagined that a Dale Chihuly glass sculpture would provide the ceiling illumination? A great experience from beginning to end - all in my old hometown of Colonia.

As a vegetarian I was disappointed that the only vegetarian entree (wild mushroom ravioli) was not available for some reason the night I was at the restaurant. They gave me a substitute which was boiled vegetables, which was not great and not worth $25.

Very impressed with the food at Le Malt. Tapas, entrees, and desserts were well prepared and quite enjoyable. Tried two different mojitos, both excellent. The spot is quite comfortable. We were there on a Wednesday evening, I can imagine that the experience would be quite more lively on the weekend. I’ll add that the scallops on the tapas menu, excellent, and highly recommend. Presentation was dope too.

The lighting at our table near the bar was so dim we had to request a second candle and my friend needed her phone flashlight to read the menu; this after we couldn’t even move the oversized chairs to sit at the table. Our waiter was very helpful in this regard. Our Prosecco and tapas were wonderful but our entrees arrived prematurely and had to be held in the kitchen plus we were asked to keep the dirty silverware for the entrees....which were delicious!! This is too fine and pricey a restaurant not to change silverware. Coffee, dessert and cordials were excellent. We would like to return but may have to sit at the bar for dinner.

Omg.... this place is so amazing. It’s a little hidden gem in Woodbridge Nj. You would never think from the outside that inside is so beautifully decorated. And the staff was amazing and the food was great. It’s a little on the pricey side. But, well worth it.
I will definitely tell my peeps about this spot. Go and see for yourself.

Everything was great. Only issue was I made the reservation to celebrate my anniversary and looked forward to the live jazz band. So when I got the call an hour before my reservation that the jazz band cancelled, I was a bit disappointed but everything else was amazing

We arrived at exactly 6:45 . We had a dinner party to attend but wanted to start our night off with a very nice elegant drink before the affair . Our table was ready and we were seated quickly. Our server was quite friendly and professional taking our drink orders and answering any questions we had! We were enjoying ourselves so much we stayed for a second drink. Very enjoyable and we will return soon for dinner.
