Love everything about this place, but most of all the great service. Everyone there is respectful, amicable and engaging. That in conjunction with the ambiance, and great food and drinks makes it a wonderful experience. It is a pleasure to be there. Great job!

Wow! I waited three years to get there, and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was intimate and the food was outstanding. Our servers were very friendly and took good care of us. If you like Scotch, there are over 200 from which to choose. And who would have imagined that a Dale Chihuly glass sculpture would provide the ceiling illumination? A great experience from beginning to end - all in my old hometown of Colonia.

As a vegetarian I was disappointed that the only vegetarian entree (wild mushroom ravioli) was not available for some reason the night I was at the restaurant. They gave me a substitute which was boiled vegetables, which was not great and not worth $25.

Very impressed with the food at Le Malt. Tapas, entrees, and desserts were well prepared and quite enjoyable. Tried two different mojitos, both excellent. The spot is quite comfortable. We were there on a Wednesday evening, I can imagine that the experience would be quite more lively on the weekend. I’ll add that the scallops on the tapas menu, excellent, and highly recommend. Presentation was dope too.

The lighting at our table near the bar was so dim we had to request a second candle and my friend needed her phone flashlight to read the menu; this after we couldn’t even move the oversized chairs to sit at the table. Our waiter was very helpful in this regard. Our Prosecco and tapas were wonderful but our entrees arrived prematurely and had to be held in the kitchen plus we were asked to keep the dirty silverware for the entrees....which were delicious!! This is too fine and pricey a restaurant not to change silverware. Coffee, dessert and cordials were excellent. We would like to return but may have to sit at the bar for dinner.

Omg.... this place is so amazing. It’s a little hidden gem in Woodbridge Nj. You would never think from the outside that inside is so beautifully decorated. And the staff was amazing and the food was great. It’s a little on the pricey side. But, well worth it.
I will definitely tell my peeps about this spot. Go and see for yourself.

Everything was great. Only issue was I made the reservation to celebrate my anniversary and looked forward to the live jazz band. So when I got the call an hour before my reservation that the jazz band cancelled, I was a bit disappointed but everything else was amazing

We arrived at exactly 6:45 . We had a dinner party to attend but wanted to start our night off with a very nice elegant drink before the affair . Our table was ready and we were seated quickly. Our server was quite friendly and professional taking our drink orders and answering any questions we had! We were enjoying ourselves so much we stayed for a second drink. Very enjoyable and we will return soon for dinner.

The service was horrible and the place was empty the food was mediocre for the price. The tuna tartare had a weird taste and so did the chicken lollipops. The decor is beautiful though.

My first time, but not my last. I will be return often with co-workers and friends. I look forward to attending your events and tastings as well. The signature fries were a little salty, but good. Next time I will order a full meal. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere, Perfect!

Thank you and I will see you soon.

I guess it depends what kind of restaurants you're used to. I eat out in NYC all the time so my expectations were very high. The food at LeMalt reads beautiful on the menu but then when it's served, it's just so-so. The ambiance tries to signify an upscale eatery but the drinks were mediocre and everything was very disjointed. Our waitress was nice and we saw her a lot in the beginning but then not at all towards mid/end of the meal. We live in NY and this place was recommended to us so we went out of our way to try it after landing at Newark airport. The bill was SO high (almost $200 with tip for 2 people) and the experience was hardly worth it. And while I realize the name of the restaurant has significance, "LeMalt" seems to give the impression of being beer specialists and not tequila.

My guest and I were seated immediately and presented with menus. After awhile we were served with water. Given that we were uber hungry it took a considerably long time (over 10mins) for a server to get to our table to take our orders. Yet, majority of the tables in the dining area were empty. 😑
Thank goodness the food, drinks and ambiance were good.

This place is beautiful! The ambiance is just lovely! I happened to book my reservation on a Thursday night where there was a live jazz band and they were amazing! Definitely can’t wait to come back and bring others with me!
