Had a nice business dinner. We all had fish and seafood that was very nice. Service was good and so was the house wine (Malbec...)

Food is fair. Empanadas were dry. Wine is over priced a retail value $19.00 a bottle Malbec is sold for $15.00 a glass and $50 range for the bottle. The service is good as a saving grace.

知人のお勧めレストランとして連れてってもらった、ステーキを中心としたアルゼンチン料理を堪能できるレストランです。連日のように混雑しているため、あらかじめ予約を取るといいでしょう。 『アルゼンチン』というからには内装や給仕される料理から、さぞや情熱的かと思ったら、シックでおしゃれ。給仕係の方も洗練されてプロフェッショナル。全く嫌な思いをしませんでした。ステーキも程よく拵えられていて、スッとナイフが入ります。ただ、メニューが全てスペイン語なのはちょっと焦りました。とは言え、注文や会計は英語でOKです。 It is Argentinian restaurant where steak is the main, introduced by my friend as a recommendation restaurant of dinner in Pasadena. However, this restaurant is one of the popular restaurants crowded every day. I recommend you to reserve in advance. The atmosphere and...More

This was my first visit to this location but I have previously visited the Malbec in Toluca Lake which I also recommend. This Malbec is in a quiet area of Pasadena, kind of dark outside at night when we went. But that setting was perfect...More

Wonderful meal, but service was a bit slow. We sat outside and there was a woman talking very loudly, not the restaurants fault but made the meal a bit unpleasant.

A restaurant that we visit on a fairly regular basis. I was not familiar with Argentine cousins until I first visited Malbec and received a basic education from a very knowledgeable member of the waitstaff. The beef entries are my favorites, and my wife is...More

Large menu with lots of options ranging from traditional Argentinian specialties, to (Peruvian) ceviches, many Italian pastas and grilled steaks and sausages. The food was consistently well prepared, fresh and flavorful. Diverse lists of wines, including Argentinian Quilmes beer, and of desserts, including both well...More
