Was looking for a new place for lunch and found this gem. Quickly on our fav list. Can't wait to come back for dinner. Chicken milanese cooked to perfection!

Parking: Didn't look difficult, but we walked the 15+ minutes from The Tangerine. The neighborhood is good, so there's no worries about walking. Ambiance: Beautiful wood floors, dark tables, very romantic. A little too dark to read the menus, but I'm getting older so there's that. Outdoor seating if you wish. They have a nice bar you can sit at... More

The good: The waitress who was both beautiful and provided excellent service. I received a glass of malbec on the house for my birthday. The bad: The empanada was doughy and not that good.

We had a great dinner at Malbec's. The wait staff were cordial and always remembered our names upon returning to the table. The wine was outstanding and we enjoyed all of the selections of appetizers, main course and desert.

My colleagues and I dined at Malbec last year during our business trip. This year, we decided to enjoy again. Whether you are fond of hanger, rib-eye or New York steak; u can definitely gratify! You can even 2 kind side by side for sharing or self-indulgence. Side dishes are great especially the mixed mushroom, potatoes and steamed veggies. 3... More

Tasty food. Good meat cuts and fresh pasta. The inside dining area is cozy without feeling crowded. Mostly couples but willing to accommodate a stroller with a sleeping baby. Attentive service. I would recommend you make reservations because it was full. Valet parking in the back. Will definately return.
