I took my husband here for his birthday and Malones did NOT disappoint! I got a glass of the sangria which in my opinion wasn't all that great...but then again, nothing compares to homemade sangria (unless you go to Carmellos, their sangria is amazing!). The staff was able to help my husband select a beer he had never tried before. They were very knowledgeable about the both the drink and dinner menu. The service was outstanding, you couldn't ask for a more polite staff. Our food came out in a timely fashion. Everything that was supposed to come out hot, did which is what I would except from a high end restaurant.
We had the appetizer special which was ceviche...it was a good sized appetizer, served in an oversized martini glass. All the seafood had great flavor and the juices it was marinated in were perfect. My husband had the lame which had great flavor and was cooked exactly the way he asked for it- medium rare. I had the surf and turf...LOVED the filet, cooked to perfection...wonderful flavor. I love crab cakes but I was not a huge fan of theirs as I don't like them fried.
We both had dessert, I had the lemon tart with fresh fruit compote and my husband had the crème brulee. He also had the Irish coffee which was also very good.
The menu has a wide price range from $18 dinner all the way up to a $40 dinner. It may be a bit pricey to some...but I think it was worth it!
The atmosphere in the restaurant is great. Very romantic...I love the stone wall and the ambiance. The bar is beautiful and I can definitely see us hanging out there for happy hour sometime! They do have great happy hour specials...they are posted on their website.
