I had the best food ever at this place. I love it and I will go back again/

The steak tasted good although tough. Great salads and empanadas. Loud, don't bother coming with people because you won't hear a word anyone says. Weird staff goes to great length...

Good food, everything else horrible 12/3/2011

The steak tasted good although tough. Great salads and empanadas. Loud, don't bother coming with people because you won't hear a word anyone says. Weird staff goes to great lengths describing the food and menu to large groups which will leave large tips, but will not help in any way help smaller groups, not even to refill a glass of water. So packed in that it is difficult to exit your seat when anyone else is sitting. Extremely cold. Overall, a miserable experience. But the food tastes good although the prices will set you back quite a bit. If you are a loud insensitive alcoholic you may fit in, otherwise it's not worth the misery. more

Excellent!! 6/30/2011

What a find! Malbec has a wonderful atmosphere, superb service, and excellent food. This is a quality establishment for Pasadenans, not for the Old Pasadena tourist crowd. more

Great new place for steak 2/19/2010

I've recently been introduced to Malbec and I have to tell everyone about it! Great atmosphere, friendly service and the food is done so well. I felt as though I had to wait a while for my dinner, but when I finally got to chowing down, I realized it must be because the chef takes his time, it really shows. The skirt steak is delicious. So juicy! My fiance got the Rib Eye and next time I will for sure order that! It's exactly how I like my rib eye! The flavors are really different because its an Argentinian place, so it's sweet and very flavorful. Recommend it for a really nice mellow dinner or date night! Pros: food, unique flavors Cons: Long wait more

Excellent service, ambience & food 12/29/2009

You know you've found a gem, if on a Monday night, there's a solid crowd of locals enjoying Argentinean food and wine for hours past closing. Coupled with the semi-open kitchen, deep red walls, and wine display, Malbec is the type of place I look forward to coming back with my friends and family. Pros: Empanadas & Skirt Steak, Group dinners & dates Cons: Slightly hard to find at night on a one-way street more

The BEST All-Around Argentinean Place in LA 11/13/2009

Malbec is a such a treat. EVERYTHING is delicious and homemade, and everyone is so sweet and real. I really like their raviolis, and all the soups are yummy (and vegan.) Oh, and the specials are always amazing. There's also one in Toluca Lake that I don't think is on Citysearch here yet, which is fabulous. Pros: Friendliness, Steak, Pastas, Overall Yumminess more

Incredible Argentinian cuisine 10/27/2008

I absolutely loved this restaurant. Located away from the crowded and noisy old town pasadena, Malbec had incredible appetizers and a cuisine plates created from scratch (the pasta in hand made!!). I absolutely loved the food, the wine was exquisite and the service was second to none!!!! more

Possibly best food I've ever had 10/23/2008

The waiter was very friendly, and treated us like they'd treat regulars at a small Italian family-owned restaurant. The food was like nothing I've ever tasted - I've had lots of Mexican and Italian food in my life, and this was like a combination of the best of both for something even better. Try the crepes, the steak, the squash soup, and probably everything else! If I'm ever back in Pasadena I'll be going there! more

Fantastic empanadas 6/30/2008

This is a great spot to avoid the tourists in Old Town and get some good Argentinean food! I frequently enjoy the freshly made empenadas. The waiters are always knowlegable and prompt. Pros: Empenadas! Cons: Street parking more

Best New Restaurant in Pasadena 6/5/2008

The word is out, the restaurant has only been open 8 weeks and last night was really busy, on a Wednesday! I enjoyed dinner for the third time with some friends and again the food was amazing. One of the three owners is the chef and you can tell he really takes pride in his food. The empanadas are amazing, but my favorite is the beef & chicken empanadas. I had the skirt steak with chimicurri sauce and it was fantastic! My friend who had the rib eye said his steak was better than Ruth's Chris! The wine is so reasonably priced too. You can enjoy a nice glass of Malbec for only $6 or have the bottle for $21. The service was also very nice, we did not feel rushed at all even though we were there for 2 hours. more
