Every dish we had was fantastic! The appetizer, the salads, and the main courses all cooked with fresh ingredients. The staff are all so pleasant and our waiter superb! You will not be disappointed if you are a foodie looking for a unique place to eat.

Very cool place with a clean and efficient open kitchen. The service was friendly and very knowledgable. A great wine list with a staff that made great suggestions for food pairings. We tasted several wines until we were pleased with our selection. I would highly recommend a visit.

Every meal is farm fresh and delish. No overpowering sauces - just taste the quality ingredients. They will modify your order however you wish too. Lovely wine list. Wish they served alcohol!

Malias makes you feel welcome. The food is wonderful. The staff is most accommodating for vegetarian requests and certainly appears to really enjoy what they do! Even in the winter, plenty of fresh, seasonal options exist. Wonder food. Wonderful place! Well worth your time.

If you can get in to Malia's do so. It is superb. Apps, soups, entrees, desserts, wines, everything is above standard. It's hard to find a place that consistently provides guests with high quality, unique food around MI, but Malia's does so.

No matter what you order, it is wonderful. The chefs really take you in mind when preparing your meal. There are special items on a blackboard to choose from each night or noon also. They are especially known for pasta dishes but they have some mighty fine fish dishes also. If you are in the area this is a wonderful... More
