Diner Reviews
  • "My husband took me to Café Madison for my birthday dinner, it was our first visit and WE LOVED IT! The atmosphere, the bartender, the wait service, and of course the food were really awesome! What made our night was the live music provided by Giorgio - he plays guitar, piano and the violin. It was soooo beautiful!!! He's a true STAR!! We wanted to check out the Towne Tavern but never made it through the doors only steps away, and the Courtyard looked so inviting with the fire lit. We have many reasons to return and we will!"

  • "I have immensely enjoyed my dining experience at Café Madison each time I've dined. The "4-course" menu selection is quite varied and the establishment does an excellent job rotating the menu options as well."

  • "Atmosphere is great as well as service and food. Filet was the most tender cute of meat I have ever had. Would recommend to all."

  • "Greatest restaurant in NJ. It was our first anniversary and we were treated like royalty."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I was delightfully surprised with The Madison after a friend recommended I try it. a very nice setting, for multiple possibilities: nice bar with music, nice porch with live music and I ate in the main dining area which was cery nice. I have the $35 Prix Fix and the food was excellent. The lobster bisque was just right, not too rich, not too floury, the salad was solid, and the Scallops were not only cooked perfectly but the accompanying sauce was just the right balance. I always think a great chef's meal is just pure flavor, and that was true with my scallops. Key Lime dessert was very nice."

  • "Hostess and waitstaff friendly and unpretentious, food genuine, attractive, and tasty. We caught "Farm to Table" event, so additionally, we felt that we had a nice night out, while enjoying a good deal to boot. We enjoyed our evening here more than several more expensive, more pretentious places across the river in Philadelphia."

  • "Love South Jersey Farm to Fork Week. Another great menu from Café Madison. Every course was delicious. Excellent food."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Visited during Farm to Fork Week. The house salad dressing was unbelievable- creamy with other hearty flavored- we all would have cleaned the salad plate with bread if no one was watching! Three of us ordered some sort of steak or filet - all cooked to perfection. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. The service was impeccable- Debbie anticipated all of our needs- we did not have to ask for anything!"

  • "We have been to this restaurant many times, each time is always a great dining experience. The staff are all professional and over the top friendly and knowledgeable."

  • "My wife and I Debbie have been going to Cafe Madison for quite some time now. It is our favorite special occasion place to go. We have never had a bad meal or experience . We are always telling our friends to go and check it out. We like one of the window seats and there or only 2, but they almost always accommodate us. We are actually going back next week for the from the farm to the table dinner and it's not even a special occasion."

  • "Odd location but worth the drive. The fixed price menu is a bargain and the quality of the food and presentation was excellent. Professional service. Live music on Saturday night. Initial thought of atmosphere is loft/industrial but it grows on you."

  • "My husband and I went to Cafe Madison for our anniversary. We had visited the restaurant last winter for a Restaurant Week dinner, so we wanted to try it again for a "regular" dinner. We loved our meal the first time time and absolutely loved it again this time. Besides the a la carte selections, there is also a prix fixe four course menu. Everything was made to perfection, the portions were appropriate, the ambience is lovely. There was live music, not only indoors, but also outdoors at the outdoor bar. Our server was friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back again and again!"

  • "Went on a Wednesday night recently and waited 20 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations. Our waitress was a bit dippy and forgot some things. Food was very good. Probably won't go back until sometime in 2015. Some other restaurant choices to visit south of CM on the same road."

  • "This restaurant is outstanding. I especially liked the four-course menu. The food was delicious--the filet mignon melted in my mouth. I was impressed with the lighted menu. The piano music added an elegant touch to the evening."

  • "We decided to test out the food because we were potentially having a wedding held here. Food is a high priority on our list so we wanted to make sure it was worth it. We were pleasantly surprised with how amazing the food was. Everything came out in a fashionable time and cooked to perfection. The staff and service was also very great. We love it there and will definitely be going again."

  • "I ordered Australian Barramundi, the fish was overcooked and mushy, prices were not cheap, no excuse for bad food. Never go again."

  • "Beautiful room with a bar offset and large dance floor. High ceilings and beautiful decor created a nice ambiance. The food was very good and the menu was unique... It lit up when you opened it. No problems reading this in any dining area! Server was very accommodating and helpful with our inquiries and she smiled the entire time. The Caesar Salad was AMAZING...made right at the table. The best made anywhere. Our center cut filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the crab cakes were up there with the best. We brought our own cake as it was a family tradition. There is a fee to slice and serve the cake but it was minimal."

  • "Hidden in Riverside......this is a gem!! Beautiful restaurant, bar/lounge with music/entertainment, outside bar area with fireplace, wine cellar room for parties and banquet room......we've been here several times and it just keeps getting better! The food is excellent, service just as good and great ambiance too!! Worth the trip because you will come back again!"

  • "If you are looking for a nice restaurant with a great fixed price menu - this is the place to go. Their 4 courses for $35 is worth it. The lobster bisque is one of the best I have ever had. If you like martinis - this is where you want to be. Caitlin our server was awesome - would highly recommend this as a night out."

  • "We've eaten here many times and usually the food is excellent. This time the food wasn't up to their normal standards. Three of us ordered fish and each filet was over cooked. My fiance ordered the pork sirloin and that was excellent. Appetizers and desserts were good as well. I will most likely dine again but I will stay away from the fish. Service was very good."
