    We were very happy to find this little gem with craft cocktails along the tracks in Berwyn. Suburban friends meeting Chicago friends so this half way point worked out well. The menu and drinks were creative and well prepared. The ambience is nice but more urban Friday night “check out a restaurant” than special occasion. A bit pricey with bill at $90 for dinner, 2 drinks and appetizer, but all restaurants have had price increases.

    We recently had the pleasure of dining here to celebrate a birthday. The service was fantastic, and everyone we encountered was helpful, friendly, and welcoming. We had some excellent cocktails (old fashioneds and a delicious cocktail with tequila, mezcal, mango, and a bit of habanero for spice). Both appetizers (the mussels and the crab cakes with an avocado/jalapeño sauce, which was surprisingly light on spice but heavy on jalapeño flavor) were wonderful. We were all impressed with our entrees. I had the marlin, which I recommend without reservation. It was perfectly cooked, and the sauce was extremely flavorful. Our party also had the salmon (with a tasty mole style sauce), scallop ceviche, and arroz mar y tierra. Everything was delicious. Overall, it was an excellent experience, and I’m glad it’s so close to our home. We will definitely return!

    We went for Easter. The whole experience was wonderful! The decor was very nice and the furnishings were comfortable. The drinks were great! I had the cotton candy drink and it was so cool… not too sweet. I ordered the surf and turf rice, my husband got the barbacoa and my daughter had the carne asada. We all loved our dishes and had little bites of each other’s plates and all were great. Our waiter, an older man, was sooo helpful and he was anticipatory to our needs. We also had the churro cheesecake and excellent also can be shared between a couple. The owner, Louis, invited us over to the bar for a shot and we talked. He was kind and funny and knows so much about tequila. I’ve asked my family to take me to la Malquerida for Mother’s Day.

    I live in Riverside and I usually dine downtown. Friends told me to try La Malquerida and I was skeptical because Berwyn has few places that serve fine food "well". So Last Friday I took my girlfriend for dinner. As a past restaurant owner in Chicago and being supper picky I have to say I was very impressed. If you blindfolded me and took off the blindfold when I sat I swear you would feel that your in a first class Bistro downtown. The place is beautiful! I'm not going into details about the food, so all I can say as a Chef and a Restaurant owner this place Is GOTO downtown dinner experience without traveling downtown. This restaurant only opened within the past 6 month. Being open for such a short time, the staff /service /food were A+. In addition to my surprise they have 8 member mariachi every Fri/Sat night that were unbelievably fist class also. Cocktails were Plentiful if you know what I mean so no issues there. Our waiter was 65 years old and was a complete professional server. Experience shows in this restaurant. Bravo Owners I'm defiantly coming back with family and friends. As a person that never writes reviews, I was compelled to write this one because I was that impressed.

    I loved the overall ambience! A mariachi group came in and just brought the place to life! Not that it wasn't before they had arrived, but it just added that much more excitement. The service was good. The drinks were amazing. I did not love the green sauce in my lamb chops, but overall they were good too. Definitely a little gem in Berwyn.

    This was our first time visiting La Malqeurida and we found a really good restaurant that is easily overlooked. The preparation and quality of the food, as well as the creativity of the dishes, all were very, very good. We enjoyed two appetizers: an octopus dish and a healthy portion of fish flautas, and they both were wonderful. Their salads also were outstanding. The appetizer portions were surprisingly large, so pace yourself (we didn't save room for an entree). Service was attentive to the brink of being intrusive, but it has a welcoming atmosphere. It doesn't look like it from the outside, but this place offers fine dining in south Berwyn. We will be back soon.

    My friend and I had gathered on a Saturday night for drinks, I came across La Malquierida through a friend who posted her experience on IG! And LADIES this place does not disappoint. Great place for a ladies night, date night, or any other occasion. Our service was phenomenal, I cannot recall our servers names but she was amazing, very attentive! The food was delicious, the drinks hit the spot, and you cannot leave without trying a concha with ice creams and freshly cut fruits. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The ambiance and service are really good. The wine list is extensive; I had the primitivo and it was quite nice. I had two cocktails. The first was a Oaxaca old fashioned and it was so sweet that by the end of the cocktail all you could taste was syrup (lovely presentation, though). The second I can’t remember the name of but it just tasted like seltzer with a hint of dark fruit; not much flavor at all. We had several appetizers and while the guacamole was pretty decent, the others weren’t that good. The sopecitos were lovely to look at, but the crust was tough and, besides a hint of spice, there wasn’t much flavor. The soup of the day just tasted like puréed beans. After the disappointment of the appetizers we didn’t order more food, but we did get dessert, and those were fantastic and really well done. The coconut was a little tough to cut through but delicious, and the cheesecake was done perfectly… not too sweet and had tons of flavor. This is a newer place so I’m sure they’ll improve things. The wine was the star of the show so I might pop in if I’m craving a glass or two, but other than that, I might just come back in a few months and see if the food and cocktails have gotten better.
