My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant we'd never been to. We were hesitant to try Malbec for 2 reasons. One, the name "market" through us a bit and two the online photos where not all that attractive. But the menu and food looked amazing so we decided to try it anyway. We were not disappointed! The food and the service were excellent!

The menu has changed, but it's as good as always. The staff is very attentive and we really enjoy going here because it's local. We love the Sweetbreads, you have to try them.

The food at Malbec is absolutely delicious. Everything is perfectly seasoned and flavorful. I think properly salting food and seasoning is critical in ensuring that every mouthful is delicious. The parillada was a wonderful way to sample different meats and experience the full range of offerings. The wine list is also quite good.
If you want a taste of Argentina in Southern California, do not hesitate!

I had never heard of this place, but a friend suggested we go here. I don’t eat meat, so my first thought of Argentinian food was not excitement. The menu is great, and there seems to be something for everyone. I ad a salad and my friend had a pasta with meat sauce. Both were good. We also each had an Argentinian lager which was delightful and refreshing. We sat at sidewalk tables, which were great. The servers were nice, but service was slow. I will probably go back and try one of the pizzas.

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal. The waiter Laurent was attentive and treated us very well and also making excellent suggestions. We dined outdoors on the sidewalk enjoying Malbec by the glass, and the Parrillada (mixed grilled meats for 2). A great find. We will be back soon.

The food was fantastic! The filet steaks were flavorful (green peppercorn sauce) and tender. We got great recommendations from our server which were very helpful. I gave it a 4 because there is not much ambiance as we are on a busy street.

We really enjoyed the food and the staff were helpful and friendly. The sandwiches are delicious and I enjoyed a tasty beef carpaccio. The flan came with whipped cream and caramel sauce and was really good! The space is creative and fun.

Despite a few kitchen challenges there was a lot to love about our first visit. We enjoyed a lingering late lunch due to a great wine and beer selection. The empanadas to share, fresh bread, and chimichurri made us comfortable.. The service was genuine and personable. We were grateful to get a chance to try as we have been long time fans of Malbec. Thanks to management for attentiveness to us as well.

Went here for Valentine's night, was hesitant but options were limited. They absolutely delivered! The meal was outstanding, the service was attentive with all distance regs followed, and the set up was as good as it could have been outside on a chilly and windy night. We will definitely return.

Service was very slow although there were only two tables seated had to flag down the waitress three times once to get our order once to remind about our order and once to get check... service really ruined the experience. Waitress was on the phone behind the counter laughing away...there were two waitresses actually ours was the one with shorter hair that was not attentive.

At first we were not sure since it looks more like a market than a restaurant but once appetizers came we were in love with this place.

Malbec Bodega was everything we were looking for in a weekend meal - amazing food, laid back atmosphere, friendly service. Here we found the best Entrana (skirt steak) we've had in or out of Argentina. The bodega offers a lovely wine list for every budget. Can't wait to come back!

The food here is pretty good. While my Spare rib was a bit rubbery it was pretty tasty and I am being pretty picky in saying this. The yellowtail tartar was excellent, the chorizo on noodles was great and the pear dessert was amazing.

The wine pairings for the appetizer and main course were mediocre in my opinion (but reasonably priced) but the dessert wine went great with the pears.

This place is right on a busy street so you have to listen to cars constantly which detracts from dinner ambiance but if it were lunch it would be just fine.

The prices are such that I would not call it a great value but the food is very good. If it were 20-30% cheaper I would call it a good value.

I would send my kids here as it is probably more their style but while we liked it, we probably won't go again not because it was bad but because it is not exactly what we look for in a dinner place.
