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

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. \r
We had a wonderful waittress -- very friendly and personable.

Wonderful little Argentine restaurant on Green Street in Pasadena.
Wait staff was prompt and attentive. Very knowledgable in regard to Argentine wine.
Ribeye steak: Awesome.
Empanada appetizer: A+.
Entrana al chimichurri: the best!!
Only downside: A bit expensive.
We look forward to returning and trying more of their dishes.

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

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

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.

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

We came here for the tapas or appetizers and each item we tried was just delicious!

The prices are good for what you get, no fast food or sauces from bottles, fresh ingredients prepared on the spot and with decent presentation.

The taste was very authentic

Try the Gambas en ajillo, the chorizo, the empanadas de pollo and the empanadas de carne were excellent. The pasta dishes were HUGE.

If you enjoy wine, your server can help you pick from their selection.

Try some desert and coffee, also very good.

This is totally a casual neighborhood place. The servers were so nice and attentive and made us feel very much at home!

Can't wait to go back.

Editorial from

Malbec offers candlelit tables, some spilling onto the sidewalk beneath a broad green awning, while its boldly colored walls are lined with artsy photography. Begin with empanadas or a chorizo and morcilla skewer with white bean salad,…
