A bit pricey, v busy on a Friday night. The food was really good from the appetizers, empanadas and calamari, to the entrees. Each of our three meat/ steak entrees were delicious. Avoid dessert though. Good night out!

This Argentinian restaurant is one of the best in Pasadena. Their steaks are well seasoned and the quality is top notch. Very good place for friends and family gatherings.

Malbec is a great local venue. The food, service and ambiance where excellent. We had the seafood paella and a steak and both were cooked to perfection. We’ll be back

Fantastic array of Argentine culinary delights. We beat the noon rush and enjoyed quiet to discuss business discussions prior to the meal. Regardless of wether it is business or pleasure, go. Enjoy. Celebrate and have fun. The staff are friendly, conscientious, and attentive.

I was given a very good tip about this restaurant. And insiders tip. That the pasta is even better than the Argentine steaks here. This time I tried the pasta and it was amazing. I love coming here for the steaks, and yet now I...More
