Unbelievably amazing! This was the best steak I’ve had in a longtime. The flatiron cut was cooked medium to our order and was buttery soft. The Gorgonzola sauce is a must. We did the family style cut steaks with paella, and it fed 4 of us. If you’re thinking about dining here, go for it, you will not be disappointed.
Service and food go hand in hand when reviewing a restaurant.
While the food at Malbec is delicious, the service is poor. Our waitress forgot our bottle of wine, never checked on us after the food was delivered and had to be asked twice for the check. Oh, and she was curt bordering on rude.
Luckily the food was great. Beef and spinach & cheese empanadas were excellent! Skirt steak with chimichurri was outstanding. Lamb chops with the creamiest, most decadent polenta and savory sautéed spinach was incredible.
Definitely worth your time and money for the food. Hopefully you get better service!
The ambiance was great and the food was fabulous! The best steak I have ever had at a restaurant!
Malbec has an upscale ambience without pretentiousness.
We have been to Malbec twice now. The food has been excellent each time. I already have been recommending it to friends.
Tout était impeccable ! Le service, la qualité des mets.
If you like authentic Argentinian food this is the place. Great service and great food. (ask the server what the best cuts are.)
Great combination of good food - the skirt steak is one of my favorites - and very attentive service. Plus they have a private room that is perfect for small business groups (20 or less).
Very nice choice of food, fish, pastas, steak, Argentinean appetizers such as four kinds of Ceviche. Especially liked the Argentinean sausage platter and the flat iron steak which was perfectly cooked and prepared with 3 dipping sauces. Attentive service; the server went out of her way to accommodate an allergy.
Attentive service, great food, good wine - the menu seems all meat and fish, but vegetarians can make an excellent meal of the sides. Nice decor. Wish the background music wasn't so played so loud (I know, I'm an old fogey).
Shrimp was tough. And over cooked. Waitress took half an hour to deliver our bill.
We love this place!! Great spot with quality food, great cocktails and polite staff. One of our favorite local spots for sure
Excellent food, attentive staff, too noisy, hard to talk, room has too many hard surfaces.
Well cooked solid food. Specials were excellent. Service good and great portions too.
Always been my go to resto with my ex hubby and when it used to be Ushuaia... but never disappoints ... food is always delish... service is good... ambiance lovely... so definitely gna keep coming back with more friends in tow😍👍
Always a pleasure to dine here. A great menu, excellent and friendly servers and delicious food. Hard to beat this combo.
Always excellent food and service the meats are to die for-- the wine list is always well chosen and things u won't find anywhere else
And a super nice unpretentious wait staff
Fabulous food but mediocre service with meals served too quickly
Excellent choice. Good steaks, excellent sides. Argentinian Beers and of course, Malbec wines.
Food and service were excellent. Lovely place. Quiet enough for conversation. Tables not too close together. We will be back.
I’ve been here several times and have never been disappointed. Always good food and service.
Poor service; a bit overpriced compared to others
This was our second time at Malbec
and there is reason that we have returned. It is a great experience for a special occasion, or a regular date night dinner. The interior is dark and modern, with a very classy feel to it. It was a lively night and a full house on that night. We saw Jimmy Smits on the evening that we went and although we've seen him out in our neighborhood on other occasions it was cool to see him at a restaurant that we like.
The menu is Argentinian so it contains a lot of meat dishes. I believe my girlfriend had a steak while I had the vegetarian plate. We both enjoyed our selections. The portion sizes, presentation and flavor of both of our dishes was excellent.
Our servers and waiters provided attentive service and from the food, ambience to the menu I would suggest this place and will most definitely be back.
Great food and service! Been wanting to try this place with my fiancé. We went for DineLA and enjoyed our meal! Will be back.
The food had exceptional flavor, especially the skirt steak. Did not try the traditional cuts off meat. Maybe one day. The salads, cerviches, seafood pasta, and streak tartare were terrific. Finally, the desserts were very special.
Excellent food, great wine selection. Service was great.
This was our fifth trip to Malbec, this time during Dine LA week. We noted that the service appeared to be more disorganized than usual, starting with confusion with our reservation, and extending to long waits to receive the menu, etc from a server who appeared to be frazzled and almost depressed. It turns out that it was Dine LA week so the restaurant was far more crowded than usual. I ordered off the Dine LA menu to take advantage of the set meal and wine pairings but in retrospect would have preferred our usual practice of sharing one of their luscious steaks accompanied by a glass of reserve Malbec that is one of the most delicious pairings I have experienced. One of the owners, to his credit, came to our table and offered free after dinner drinks and coffee which was a nice touch. We'll be back but will skip Dine LA in the future.
One of the best meals I've ever had and I've eaten at 3 michelin star restaurants all over the world. Perfection. The ambiance could be improved... it's a bit dumpy, but the food is mouth-wateringly delicious. Burrata starter. Steak entree and ice cream dessert on Dine LA.
Everything was beyond our expectations. Nice and cozy Argentinian restaurant . Food was really good , and service was excellent!
Local restaurant with tasty, well prepared food. Service was friendly but somewhat slow.
The correct items were served but servers should know who gets what. We had the “Paella” for two which was quite sufficient in size and had lots of seafood. Paired with the House sangria worked well.The other couple had the filet of sole which was also very good.
The food was mediocre and the service was disorganized.
Chose this place for Dine L.A. Overall the food/dinner was great! They didn’t have/ran out of one of the dessert choices we wanted so settled for the other 2 available. Sadly, my date & I were not impressed with either dessert.
This restaurant is run by clowns. We made a reservation for 4 at 730, and after about 20 minutes of standing in an extremely cramped entryway with a heavy glass door being propped open by my foot for about 12 of the 20 minutes, I asked the hostess who was avoiding my eye contact with COWARDICE how much longer is would be, to which she said another 15-20 minutes. I don't care how good food anywhere is, when the service is that of my 8th grade girlfriend just stringing me along, its not worth a cent. We went to U Zen sushi a few blocks away instead which was great and where we were treated like we didn't have leprosy. Never making a "reservation", if you can call it that, again.
We went for dineLA and make reservation for 2 at 12:30pm. We arrived on time but there was only one server working and we have to wait until he finished taking order for the table.
So through out the meal, service was minimal. At a point the server took the complimentary bread away and I asked for more, he answered yes but never brought anything back.
When we order, I want to know what's the soup of the day, however, the server said it's not ready yet and he didn't know what it would be. I was like, seriously? Its 45mins in service and the soup was not ready yet? So we ordered two beef turnover, a skewer with fries, and pork chop. Everything was delicious except the pork chop dish, the whole dish was super salty. I am very tolerant on salt, so when I say it's salty, its really salty.
All in all, I hope it's just an off day for them. Just the service not on par.
The waiters from Argentina were friendly and the service and food was good for the price. Will definitely go back.
Malbec was great! The food, wine and service were all top notch. I will definitely be back soon.
We had a group of 13 celebrating 3 birthdays. Malbec was so accommodating (thank you Luciano)! We had a delicious, memorable meal with extended family in a private room with a special menu they put together just for us. The ambiance was perfect, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Highly recommend Malbec!
Food, wine, services and the overall atmosphere is great. We can genuinely recommend this restaurant.
Had to wait 25 mins past our reservation time. Where everyone was very nice service was horribly slow.
Excellent steaks in a resturant with a warm atmosphere. The tables are fall enough so there is plenty of space and low noise level.
