LeMalt continue to raise the bar in the neighborhood. Such a hidden Gem. Atmosphere and service exquisite. Food cooked to perfection with a great selection of high end tapas such as scallops, chicken and lamb lilapops and dinner items. Lastly creative cocktails list with great ingredients made with high end cordials.

Octavio was outstanding!! The drinks were something else. Ordered a drink off menu and it was made to perfection. Everything ordered from the water to appetizers to main course...no disappointments. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend Le Malt Lounge.

Fantastic experience with some natural social distancing in an already great atmosphere. Outstanding scotch, whiskey, bourbon and tequila selection. Small seafood plates, tuna, scallops and octopus were perfect even for the most discriminating. Wish I had brought a bigger appetite for entrees. Was tempted to keep this hidden gem in the area to myself as I almost forgot I was dining during a pandemic.

My husband and I wanted to try out Le Malt being that we don't live to far and heard great reviews. Aesthetically pleasing overall, but expected more from the decor. The cabana is a great decor choice, however the seats are unsettlingly ripped and torn. The debris from the seats were all over my dress. Our bill end up being over $140 for two entrees and two drinks. At those prices I would think the seats wouldn't be deteriorating. We don't mind the price, but the ambiance/decor has to match that same energy.

Didnt eat, but wouldn't let me go ahead without a food review. I liked the look, and overall ambiance of the place, ...but I wasnt happy with the overall experience. Drinks were expensive, which is fine, if they are good. They weren't. They were ok. Vibe was cool, but it was spoiled by the table being dirty, and sticky. Overall, I think it's a good concept, ruined by poor execution.

This place is gorgeous. Our reservation was for 7pm we came early and they seated us. All our food was perfect. My steak came out a little over done and I don’t like to complain, as soon as I cut into the steak our server stopped me and said “that’s not how you ordered it” took it away and gave us scallops while we waited. I wouldn’t have said anything But she went above and beyond and even the chef came out to make sure everything was good. Overall a great experience and we will be back !

Form the outside, it doesn’t look like much — but once you’re inside, wow. Every detail is seen to and the staff is attentive and professional. The tapas offerings were perfectly developed and executed and the wine pairings were well thought out. I eat at fine restaurants with great regularity, but this experience was truly one of the best. Well done!
