Amazing empanadas! Ravioli was to die for. Excellent desserts too. And the wine was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!!

This was our first time here, came with our friends. We started with salad, bread with
Chimichurri. Ordered platter of sausages & platter of two different meats. It was just the right amount of food for 4 people. The rib eye was exceptional, so was skirt steak.
For dessert we split the Dulce de Leche. We all agreed we will definitely return. So nice
To be able to enjoy a meal at restaurants again🙂

The food was 👏 amazing. It just took over 45 minutes to get to my table. Had to move tables because there was kids running around and playing with knifes unattended. The server juana (juanita) was very nice and accomodating and apologized several times. Will definitely order for pick up or go when i am not too hungry.

We had a lovely dinner and experience. We started with empanadas and the beef tartare for appetizers- delicious. Salads were healthy and delicious. We had chicken with grilled vegetables for our main course- very tasty, tender and vegetables were amazing.

To handle a normal dinner crowd they were completely understaffed... Long wait times to get water or order your food... Server looked lost and wasn’t very good at handling and managing their tables...

Great food at pretty reasonable prices. Many dishes under $25 and some are very unusual. Great if you like Argentine food or like to experiment (me). Only two downsides, very noisy inside and wine is over priced.

Great food and service. We had a bit of an incident with our meal, and were given free dessert and port to make up for it. Server was extremely sweet and apologetic, and it definitely didn’t stop us from devouring our dinner! We will be back

The food was delicious but they were so busy appetizers and meals came out at the same time and all our sides came out when we were almost done eating. They did credit us the sides, so that was nice. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed and was rushed the entire time. There also were no social distancing guidelines being followed, restaurant was full to the max inside and out.

Food was very good. But service very lacking as they did not have enough trained staff on duty. Restaurant was incredibly loud making it difficult to have a conversation.

And, while one expects restaurants to make up for a year of lost business, the prices for wine were very high, with the smallest pours I have ever seen. I’d either pay corkage or buy a bottle and bring some home as wine by the glass he is a terrible value. They must get 10 glasses per bottle

As usual, Bodega Malbec did not disappoint. My husband and I were there with friends, after a long wait to dine at one of our favorite restaurants. The crowd was large but the staff very professionally accommodated everyone. The food was delicious, the service wonderful and the ambience warm and inviting.
