Le Malt is one of my favorite places to visit. The ambiance is worth every penny. The service is excellent. I went on a Thursday for Jazz night and had an amazing time!

Great Scotch and Whiskey flights, tapas include grilled octopus, grilled tuna, scallops and truffle fries. The salmon and seas bass entrees are always excellent.

My husband and I always love eating and relaxing at Le Malt. The food is unbelievable and the service is just as amazing. It’s everything you can look forward to. So many of our friends have eaten here after our great experience and they can attest to what we described. I hope they continue to satisfy their customers.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and it was absolutely marvelous. I had the Hennessey salmon and my husband had the 14oz steak which was juicy, elegant and well seasoned. The cocktails was delicious and perfect. I definitely recommend for couples, small gatherings, not family oriented. It is for mature, grown adults here so any adults that appreciates lounges and not clubbing.

The experience started a little off because our waiter forgot that we even ordered appetizers and we had to remind him after 30 mins of waiting but after we finally got it, it was delicious, the entrees and drinks were also exceptional so besides the beginning mishap it was a perfect evening

Really great find. I think it's been stated before that the exterior leads you to be a little wary of what you will find inside. You step inside and just a really well done comfortable elegant interior. David our server was excellent. Nice comprehensive wine list and some excellent sounding cocktails. Bar was very nice. We had the tapas and everything was delicious. Definitely will be back.

I have been to Le Malt numerous times. Great drinks and good food. Last night our waiter was terrible. I had to get up twice to look for him. Maybe they were short staff because of post Covid staffing issues.

The atmosphere was very nice and relaxed but the food was not worth the price. The mushroom ravioli was a very small portion and the flavors were off. The bone in chicken was good but the sauce was very salty. The drinks were very over priced. We asked for tap water and were given bottled and told it was the same but was charged in the end. The seating was low and not very comfortable. Would come back for a late night drink but not for a full Meal again.

We waited an extremely long time for service. The servers were less than enthusiastic. The food was all cold when it came out. My steak was over cooked. The server never asked about the food nor gave recommendations. I had reservations to go back on Thursday but I have canceled after this experience.

Our annual after Mother’s Day spa day and dinner; we looked for a location to have dinner. We made Reservations a week before. Our services ran later then expected; so we actually missed our reservations but called to see if they could still accommodate us. We were only able to order Tapas and drinks which was more then enough! We ordered the whole Tapas menu for our table and every dish was delicious! The speciality drinks were wonderful. The service was great; From our entrance to our exit! We all live in New York City and are planning to come back to visit again.

The atmosphere is very big city chic with a Rat Pack Cotton Club feel. Extremely Delightful

Le Malt never disappoints. Service is always amazing. I believe my server was Edgar and he was superb. I was a little surprised of the some of the other patrons attire. I always thought there was a strict dress code and some men in there were not dressed up to par so I was taken back by that.

The place was very nice but the wait just blow us away. After being told if we’re late the reservations would be canceled, then arriving 10 mins before our reservation to be told you’re back up 15 mins to wait a total of 50mins was absolutely insane. Knowing that most places because of the pandemic would require reservations to we decided our only solution was to stay. It was just not good. The experience was one to remember.

Absolutely loved Le Malt Lounge. The service was impeccable and the vibe inside is classy, quiet and soothing to say the least. I got to try a few things on the menu and almost everything was flavorful, fresh and done to perfection. Can’t wait to come back.
