"I picked up my friend at the airport and she was famished and in need of a cocktail. I remembered Malabar from a previous visit with my son. So we decided to stop in. Food was nice, well cooked. Creative flavors. Bar drinks were okay too.
Certainly not on par with Ella's in downtown, but way better than fast food and Denny's!"

"Our group ordered four quite different entrees and all were delicious. The pork chop special was tender and steamed vegetables (which can be disappointing) were flavorful and properly cooked. On a busy night the noise level was very high but otherwise a great place. One suggestion: since there are Mexican dishes offered, salsa should be available. Pico de gallo did not quite fit the bill. This was our second visit and we will be back."

"This is a good spot. They have a nice atmosphere and a good menu. The bar scene is cracken and the happy hour menu is good too. I like the selection a liquor and wine they have. Comfortable to go on a business lunch or dinner, as well as a date night."

"We went there on a Sunday night for the first time. We decided to try it since they have "Kids Eat Free". The decor was nice. The food was mediocre at best, but way overpriced. The biggest surprise was the kids mac and cheese, which was the Kraft kind on a plate. Why should I pay $6-7 for something I can cook at home from a box? We ended up with a lot of leftovers that no one wanted to take home...."

"I had not gone to Makabar for quite a while (over a year since my last visit). I had mentioned to my dining companions that I had a great steak sandwich at Malabar the last time I had dined there. Two of us had the steak sandwich and were disappointed. It was not bad,but just a very plain sandwich. One co-worker had the steak salad. He said it was good. I think the other diner had a Reuben sandwich and found it to be ok. Our server was attentive and kept our water glasses filled."

"The food was great, however the seating was tight for my party of six across from the bar.
With folk squeezing by with drinks and bar stools it was evident that a drink was bound to spill on one of my guests. Of which it did and the constant bumping against made for unpleasant place to really eat comfortably."

"Fantastic service and delicious ribeye (highly recommend)! Valentine's Day was made very quaint with this restaurant, but not quite the prestige that I thought that it would be. Perhaps I am biased to the gems in Sacramento, but this is an outstanding and more local alternative. Also, very accommodating to my S.O.'s handicap and gave us the perfect table that he needed. Thank you Malabar!"

"Had an excellent visit here. The staff was great. Diana was a great waitress and was very social. Food was excellent. I had this risotto with mussels. Good beer selection, too! Definitely worth the visit, especially if you're seeing a Kings game or flying out nearby the next morning."

"The food was pretty tasty, but nothing to brag about. I ordered the Shrimp Scampi Linguine, it was very tasty. However; everything on the menu was a little pricey. The ambience was appealing downstairs, but they seated us upstairs in a small banquet room. Not much ambience for a date."
