    This is NOT a review of Malbec Kitchen. It is a review of Open Table. We booked this restaurant (which we love) for 7:30 on Thanksgiving, only to find when we arrived that it was closed. This is outrageous. We were stuck driving around trying to find a place that would take us. Fortunately Mi Piace was able to accommodate us. It would be nice if, in the future, you took the trouble to ask venues in advance if they are planning to close for holidays. Grrrrrrrr

    New menu changes ok… we love the place, but the marinara on the ravioli was perfect already. The saffron leek sauce did not have the same pop of flavor, The choices of wines have gone up but fewer choices for a glass is a bummer. So glad the pulpo is unchanged!

    Our server, Lauren, was fantastic. He helped us chose entrees and wine, and also took time to just chat for a minute or two about things. The food was outstanding, can't wait to go back. Only downside is the prices are on the high end for this neighborhood.

    Dinner was great! We ordered the Parrillada, and it was cook to perfection. Our server and the help were great. I usually get names, so I can do a shout out, sorry. I will be back. We sat outdoors, and the table were a little rocky but fixable.

    Indoor seating was nice. Exterior seating is not ideal as street could be busy. Great and friendly service. The empanadas and steak were good. The pasta del mar has good amount of seafood but not a wow. More like a typical American pasta. No private parking lot. Street parking is not difficult to find either.

    Ever single item we tasted was delicious. Stated with pulpo and chorizo appetizer. The veal sweetbreads were the best we’ve ever tasted. All flavors blended beautifully. Sorrentinos was perfect. And the papardelle was great. Will make this a regular place and will get a lot of friends to go. This is a neighborhood treasure. Service was impeccable.

    We visited the restaurant on Valentine's Day. The seating arrangement was tight due to number of patrons on this special day. However, the food and service were great so we weren't too concerned about the close proximity of tables. We will visit again at a less crowded day in the future.

    I made reservation beforehand. When we arrived no table was available so waiter immediately seated us at the bar and offered us drinks on the house. Since we opted for a bottle, she converted the drinks to dessert on the house. Service was great throughout. Food is phenomenal, especially the empanadas and the paella. The music choice was a little odd, but otherwise all was perfect. This place is officially my new favorite in Pasadena. Just don’t change anything!

    I'm a fan of the new incarnation of Malbec market. The food is exceptional, the atmosphere is comfortable and the staff is friendly and accommodating. It provides a reasonable value and is a gem in the neighborhood. Although on the surface the prices may seem higher that you would entertain for a casual dinner out, the portions are generous. My girlfriend and I have gone several times now, and we tend to share an entree and a salad. The Ruffalo salad is our favorite, although I can't say we've moved beyond it - it's so good! We've tried a beef dish, a pasta dish and the pizza and they were all excellent. Last time out we even had leftovers of the beef dish to bring home, even after sharing. One note...don't overlook the pizza's....so good, and very reasonable on generously topped with the goods!

    Food was wonderful to just OK. A member of our party of four greatly enjoyed the sweetbreads. Ravioli was delicious. Salads were very good. Empanadas very good. Two of us ordered the mixed seafood with pasta and were very disappointed that all the seafood was overcooked, tough and rubbery. Dining room was much too noisy to carry on a conversation without shouting.

    Third time here, ordered different items off the menu each time and all have been quiet delicious. Only side note, maybe because it was a busy evening, the time between our main course and dessert took quiet a while.

    I really enjoyed trying the DineLA menu at Malbec Market. They have a cute outside patio area in the front of the store (with heatlamps) but I decided to dine indoors. When you first walk in, you don't really expect much because it does look like a market with refrigerated cases of meats and chimichurri. They also have a whole shelf of wine. The tables inside are fairly small, mostly for parties of 2. They might've had one or two tables that could accommodate parties of 4. Everything that we ordered on the DineLA menu was good though. The portions were nicely sized too (you won't leave feeling hungry - in fact, I even had to take some of my food to go). They bring out complimentary bread with flavored oil which was really nice. The beef stew polenta appetizer (Estofado Y Polenta) was really nice and hearty. The beef stew was delicious and the polenta was creamy and buttery. The prosciutto wrapped shrimp appetizer (Camarones Con Prosciutto) was a little salty but it balanced with the bitter and citrusy arugula salad. For the entrees, the Churrasco Madeira was amazing! It was a good sized 8 oz. striploin steak, cooked perfectly medium rare topped with a mushroom sauce. It also came with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. I also tried the gnocchi with bone marrow (Noqui Con Ragu Y Caracu) which was good but super heavy. The gnocchi was covered in a skirt steak ragu which was like a red wine beef sauce. It was so luscious! Wish I could've eaten more or that it came with some vegetables to balance out the dish but I gladly packed my leftovers. I also ordered a side of the french fries (Papas Provenzal) and they were delicious! Loved the garlic and parsley flavor and they were nice and crunchy. For the desserts, I had the Crepe De Peras, a pear crepe. It was supposed to come with pistachio gelato but they gave it with dulce de leche gelato instead. Nevertheless, the crepe was still good. I also tried the Don Pedro which is just an ice cream sundae, also good too.

    Visited this restaurant as part of the DineLA week. Everything on that particular menu was amazing, the extent of the regular menu is a bit overwhelming. Everything was sooo delicious. Best meal I’ve had in some time.
