This was my first visit to this location but I have previously visited the Malbec in Toluca Lake which I also recommend. This Malbec is in a quiet area of Pasadena, kind of dark outside at night when we went. But that setting was perfect...More

Wonderful meal, but service was a bit slow. We sat outside and there was a woman talking very loudly, not the restaurants fault but made the meal a bit unpleasant.

Very tender and flavorful steak dinner with equally good sides. Very pleasant wait staff in cozy environment. Wines by the glass not so good, though. Go with a friend or loved one so you can reasonably share a good bottle.

Ate here with some work friends, and really enjoyed it. Had eaten here a couple of years ago and remembered the empanadas. The dough for these was so good and variety of filling options. We each tried different ones. My favorite was the beef filling....More
