    What a find! I love happening on one-of-a-kind Single-Propriator locations known for "something" whether a dive diner or a high-end dining experience. Madeleine's is the latter. Nestled in Evansville's Historic district among turn of the century homes its easy to drive by even if youre looking for it. The food, ambiance and wine were exceptional. While a choice between Prime and Dry Aged beef was a nice touch one doesn't expect to find a Calamari Tender preperation of this quality in a quaint Ohio River Town setting. Madeleine's will be my default choice whenever my travels take me to Evansville in the future.

My wife ordered the Frog Leggs and she was not quite as satisfied with her meal. Wine choice was The Prisoner......very good. Recommend this place for sure.........

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    Located in the historic district of Evansville, everything was tastefully done, except for the food and the service. The food was good but not great, and the server, although attentive, served us the wrong entree and failed to bring us a side dish that we ordered. The prices seemed a bit high for what we received. Since you have to go out of your way to get there, you should probably find out from others, who are familiar with the restaurant, what dishes are worth ordering.

    Madeleine's provided a quiet dinner for my wife and I to enjoy our anniversary. We were seated immediately when we arrived. The duck was fantastic. The rack of lamb was just average. The outdoor seating was romantic and comfortable. A very nice dinner with good service and great food.

    I booked Madeleine's to celebrate my best friend's birthday and my own to top off our girl's day. It was perfect from the moment we sat down. I had asked if they did anything special for birthdays to include it. I was presently surprised to find the table decorated with birthday items. It was sweet. Our waitress was perfect. Attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious from start to finish. I just wish I had enough room to finish the Vidalia Onion soup. Yum! My friend enjoyed her meal as well. It's the perfect spot for friends looking for a higher-end birthday celebration, a romantic date, an anniversary or just wanting something different.

    Went to Madeleine's for a second first date in 25 years. Right off the bat the Chef Tim greeted us, Corey the mixologist poured a generous glass of wine and Sadia our server was very pleasant and personable. The food was great, the wine list extensive and the atmosphere was outstanding. The restaurant closes at 10 but we went out back to the outdoor dining area after dinner and stayed until 1 or maybe 2...we lost track of time. Tisha (?) Tim's wife and Madeleine (their daughter) came out and we had a wonderful conversation. This is definitely a wonderful place to come and enjoy food...A diamond in the rough in Evansville, IN of all places. PS-I went with a lifelong resident of Evansville and this was their first time....Loved It!!

    We were on vacation with the kids going to Holiday World during the day and eating well at night. Madeleine's was by far one of the best places we've eaten. The sweetbreads were unbelievable. The duck was delicious. They made the very best chicken fingers for the kids that I've ever had. The wine was amazing. Dessert was ok. Or was not the strongest dish of the night but certainly good. The ambience was amazing and the owner was especially kind to our children who are well behaved but at 6and 4, young all the same. A big recommendation for this neighborhood gem.

    This was our second time at Madeleine's and we really enjoyed dinning there. Our kids are in competitive swimming and we travel to Newburgh/Evansville once a year in the summer time. The particularly outstanding dishes of the night were the deviled eggs with the watermelon relish, the rabbit in a mushroom cream based sauce and the vanilla cheesecake. The waitress was very accommodating taking care of our kids (10 and 12) who enjoyed the grilled salmon with a side of one of the best mac and cheese I ever tried. The place is a little quiet and more on the romantic side for a family with young children. We highly recommend it for a special occasion and its historical location!

The atmosphere is very nice and also very appealing(classy without being overdone), the food is wonderful, the tableware is a combined experience of delicate notes from the past mixed with modern style and the service was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt.

    Summary: Go to Biaggi's Babel Kanpai or Chophouse and save $300 My wife daughter and I came here for New Years. Service was lacking. Even though we had a reservation we waited a 30 min to be seated and ended up with the empty table that we had been standing next to the whole time. There is a small entryway and no seating. Service was horribly lacking. Once seated, we waited even longer for drinks. The menu had you pick one of two dishes for 3 courses and an appetizer. They were out of some of the options. Our salad came out before the appetizer(cold prawns). We the steak and lobster dish for the main course. The dish was nothing special and portions were decent. the desert was a creme brulee in a 1/4 cup ramikan. Bill: $375 incl 18% tip

    Excellent food; not only good but pleasing to the eye. The dishes were not what you would find at a chain restaurant. Service was excellent; she provided suggestions when we asked and was there when we needed something but also allowed us to have our solitude. First place I have been to where they allow one to electronically pay their bill at the table and the portable device sends the receipt via email. Only negative comment on the device is that it gives you the option of leaving 15, 20, or 25 percent gratuity (which is great) except it calculates the percentage on the after-tax amount instead of the proper before-tax amount.

    The setting is quaint in an older home in an old neighborhood. The interior is tastefully done and doesn't intimidate - we wore jeans and fit right in. This was a special occasion for us so I asked for (and got) a table in the wine cellar. Try it - it's private and the staff understand privacy too. The food was excellent. Our server explained that Chef Tim opened Madeleine's eight years ogo. The selection is still vibrant and varied.

    My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary, and I told the restaurant in advance that we were. We had their best table with extra ambience. My wife is vegetarian and she was delighted with her choices. I am not, and was impressed both with my scallops appetizer and my duck entrée. Best duck I have had. The food is impressive and we will return. Soon, I hope, although we live ninety minutes away.

    When I want to make sure a night dining out goes perfectly, I don't have to look any further than Madeleine's. From the impeccable service, to the expertly crafted dishes and perfectly poured cocktails, this is what a great dining experience is all about. The only thing I ever lament over is that the Whiskey Cream Mushrooms aren't available all the time, they're a special piece of heaven.
