The house wine is a deep, warm Malbec. The food is flavorful and the portions are large. The service is impeccable.

All of the food was excellent except the French Onion Soup had very little flavor. The mimosa flight and expresso martini were also very good. Our server was new but very attentive and pleasant.

When my husband wants to make me happy, he takes me to La Malbec. He knows I like to dine at resturants that offer flavorful food that I do not make at home. This past week we ate our evening meal there. Winter can be dreary but the place brighten our spirits, even as we approached the door. There was outside dining available with warming heaters, giving off warmth as we entered. Inside were beautiful Christmas decorations, breathtaking spheres of light above us and spacious rooms. We had the best seat in the house. A table with cushioned seating, stacks of pillows in an intimate nook. We began with a charcuterie board of meat, cheeses, fruits, and nuts. We tried the shrimp shooters. They hinted of chinese cuisine. Then we had beef tenderloin and roasted lamb chops. Both were cooked perfectly!! The food was pleasing to the eye. The sides complimented the entrees, and were so flavorful. Kidoos to the chef

We were visiting our sister in Bloomsburg and before attending ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the BTE, we decided to eat at your restaurant because of its proximity to the theater. From the moment we walked in your door, the host and waitress were pleasant and accommodating. The Christmas decorations are beautiful and the overall ambience very pleasing. The squash and onion soups, scallops, and pesto pasta were all excellently prepared. What a nice surprise to have the chef visit our table and ask our opinion on the food. This was the best dining experience we have had since before the pandemic. In this day and age when restaurants are only open a few days or even hours a week, and are understaffed with stressed out, cranky or even angry servers and managers, it was wonderful to find a place that stresses communication and socialization along with a relaxed atmosphere and wonderful food. We felt refreshed when we left. This is how all restaurants should be run! When we are in the area again, we will definitely return.

The food was wonderful, the staff was very attentive, and the decor was lovely. We had a wonderful dinner! I come from a major metro area and this restaurant rivals "big city" gourmet style restaurants.

I would give La Malbec more points if I could. The attentiveness and help the staff and chef provided were exquisite. From the host who seated us (didn’t get her name), to Parker our waiter, to Chef Andres, to owner Roxana, each stopped by to speak with us very personably and to ensure we had an outstanding visit. We were visiting from Wisconsin and only learned about La Malbec from an entry in the guest book at the VRBO we were staying at. My wife has some dietary restrictions and these concerns were taken very seriously. Cocktails, small plates, main course, and dessert were all checked, and tailored if needed, to ensure we could enjoy them. We started with a Salt of the Earth Old Fashioned for my wife and a Smoked Maple Manhattan served in a smoke chamber for me. Both were outstanding…. kudos to the bartender on duty (I don’t think it was Chad). We continued with the Charcuterie for 2. A good choice to prepare for the fish dishes we were eyeing. My wife’s seared Salmon was excellent, and uniquely served with skin on and on the top-side, salty and crispy. The Salmon was on a bed of ratatouille that chef modified slightly for my wife’s restrictions. My Seafood on a bed of risotto (the host’s recommendation) was mind-blowing. Scallops, shrimp, and lobster seared and seasoned beautifully on a risotto that packed a powerful flavor punch. Dessert is one of my wife’s favorites. As chef came to check on us he acknowledged that all the desserts had sugars that my wife couldn’t have. He and my wife collaborated to devise a fresh fruit and ricotta cheese dessert that chef executed beautifully. Thank you all at La Malbec.

The food was delicious! We would love to have 1-2 more vegan choices on the menu. Mechalia was very attentive and seems to be enjoying her guests. The old fashion was incredible! All in all a wonderful evening!

What an outstanding establishment. From the decor and style to the comfortable seating. One of the best bartenders I have ever ordered drinks from. The drinks were phenomenal and was the chef when he prepared and plated our meals. There were four of us dining and each of our meals were cooked to perfection and they were amazingly delicious. Well done and when in the area we will dine there again.

bar service for predinner cocktails at the bar was very inadequate. Was this a case of service issues or a push by management to dissuade pre dinner cocktails? We waited 20 minutes for cocktails that only arrived as we were leaving the bar for our table for dinner
