Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service were very good, but the tables were on top of each other (outdoor space not open, due to rain) which made it noisy and difficult to have a conversation."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I've have eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed my meal. It never gets too crowded and the food portions are just right. On warmer days, have also enjoyed the rooftop bar. Never been disappointed with the food or service, will continue to come back."

  • "I was entertaining a visiting friend....and M & V was in the right location, so we brunched there. It was just fine....not extraordinary, not bad. Everything was what you'd expect.....average."

  • "This past weekend, on a whim, my girlfriend and I has to meet up with a few friends later that night so we decided to make a quick reservation and stop by Madison and Vine for dinner. From the beginning it seemed like any normal night there. Upon seating the waiter asked for our water selection and brought it over, but then he never came back. I mean he never came back. After waiting about 20 or so minutes the maître de happened to come over and ask us about our evening. After informing him that we were waiting over twenty minutes for the waiter to come back to us, he offered no apology and just preceded to take our order. We never saw the waiter again that night other than to ask us about dessert. A horrible, disrespectful experience."

  • "Madison & Vine is a nice, quiet wine bar associated with the Library Hotel near the main New York Public Library building. Great wine selection, and the appetizers we ordered were good. It's a nice place to get a glass of wine or two with some friends. Will definitely go back!"

  • "I wanted a place close to GCT but Restaurant Week meant no table available. So I came to M&V. The tables are jammed right on top of each other. I could hear the other table's conversation as well as my own - which I could hardly hear at all. So if you are eating alone, reading your iPhone, you are fine. Otherwise, prepare to shout. The food was good, but probably 25% more than I would have paid for the equivalent at the places I had in mind close by. There MUST be something I am missing because the place was PACKED at lunch. I will not come again. You can have my table. The service WAS attentive and I felt sorry for the poor woman who had to deal with the din."

  • "Always an excellent experience. Something for everyone be it business, pleasure or anything else"

  • "The service was efficient and pleasant but the food and wines were too costly considering their mediocrity."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The place and service was nice but the food was ok. Very expensive but it's midtown, so it's expected."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I've been here a coupe times for a business lunch, and my only complaint is that the tables are too close together making conversations from other tables very loud and distracting."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Highlight: The have an exceptional BBQ Chicken Sandwich! Service was very good."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Love the location, atmosphere, and servers were the nicest ever. That said I have never tasted a worse Cobb salad."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I went on valentines day and didn't realize until I arrived that there was a pre fixed valentines day menu. only 3 entrees available. I usually get the organic chicken but it was not an option so that was disappointing."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Another simple delicious lunch…. Service was impeccable… Our waiter was very accommodating with our multiple special requests. We were very appreciative of the white glove service! Highlights are their BBQ Chicken Sandwich & Cob Salad…"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We have enjoyed eating here several times, however I was very disappointed this Valentine's Day. I made the reservation on line. The weather had delayed some in our party so I called to revise the number of guests. It was at this time I was told there was a fixed menu for the evening. This was unexpected but understandable, however I wish I has known. After we arrived the whole evening never quite came together. The service was just fair, being slow to get to us and then slow to respond. The timing between courses was slow and the food was just fair. Also way after dessert I had to ask for our check to leave even though there were only 2 tables left. I like Madison and Vine and will eat here again, but this night was definitely off."

  • "Was a business lunch with a client friend. Very small & can be noisy but we sat on a side. Waiter a bit pushy for us to order. The food came right away but did not serve main dish before our appetizer was finished. The scallops were very good with a good sauce that did not kill the dish. Decent wine list. Prices good for NYC. Have stopped in at night after a show and had light dinner at bar; also good; more croweded & nose level higher but enjoyed the place."

  • "Good spot for Midtown lunch, but small tables and very noisy. Hard to have a conversation."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "Hostess exceptional at managing tables and keeping commitments. Food is good. Noise level energetic but accoustics allow you to tune it out if you are focused in conversation with others at your table."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Clients and I have eaten lunch here. The lunch has been good. This is the first time my wife and I ate dinner. The wine list is acceptable however they did not have 4 of the 5 selections in their listing of Pinot Noir. The staff wasn't very sympathetic and gave a whole host of excuses."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "We were referred to Madison + Vine by the Grand Hyatt's concierge for brunch before the Super Bowl. The french toast was fantastic and the fresh berries were really yummy. The value of eating here is really good too. They let us add 1 to our reservation at the last minute, which was much appreciated."

  • "tried meeting an old friend for lunch.> the noiselevel was so loud and intense that we couldnot hear each other. The staff let you know that they wanted to turn over your table and asked us to order soon after we were seated. Same thing for the check. Would never go back."

  • "we had a gift card for $150 that a friend purchased - it was good at M&V and also cambell apartments, etc. When we went to use it the waiter said I don't think we accept it. Then he came back and said it was OK but they deducted 120 instead of $150 so we had to talk to the manager"
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "I was in the back of the restaurant near the windows and it was so hot in the place... I felt really bad that I just want to go. we told a server andhe says it was normal. we wait our plates outside. we look at the control on the wall and it indicates 79°F. So we just eat, not even take wine and get out. we didn't like the amibiance of the restaurant. no music. the light were too flash. people were really loud (no acoutic absorbption with really high ceiling) the crab cake (really good) was made with real crab and thery were lightly fried. it has a sauce with it : really good and a cute little salad with lemon vinaigrette. i was a little disapointed by the ceasar salad : no bacon, no lemon, no parmasan, no capres. a salad without love."

  • "slightly rude hostess, very loud, cramped, ran out of the bottle of wine we wanted, ran out of the meatloaf by 730pm. Not a great experience"

  • "When in NY we return again and again to Madison and Vine for the good food, vibrant setting and great location. Relaxed atmosphere; like eating with your best friends. The trout was excellent!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "I had read good reviews about M&V so tried it with some friends. It was fine but not memorable. Food was just ok, not exciting, staff was nice enough, ambiance was somewhat lacking and noise level was fairly high. In general it was pretty average in all respects."
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "Took some friends there from out of town because it was close to their hotel. Great food and very good wine. They have a price fix option as well that is nice!"
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "Nice place for a business lunch if you are in the area."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "We went because of their 1000pts and they had some major issues. We arrived at 8pm and didn't even eat until 9 - had to send our food back because it was cold. We were compensated for the inconvenience and the waiter was equally as frustrated. In the end, the food was great and they took care of us, but perhaps they shouldn't have opened and taken care of their flooded kitchen. We might try it again - everyone deserves a second chance."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "In an area filled with delis and bars, this was a really nice restaurant near Grand Central. Food was great. It was cold so we sat indoors, but outside seating was available too. The website says that the restaurant is part of the a hotel (which made me a bit weary) but you would never know there was a connection. You didn't have to walk through a hotel lobby or any thing like that. It was a great find."

  • "Met an friend for lunch. We were able to have a wonderful lunch, linger at thentable and catch upmand never once felt rushed. The food is good, the portions reasonable. Give it a try. I will definately be back."

  • "The only thing they are missing is WARM bread! Salads, dinner and dessert are fabulous! But it is missing good warm bread!"
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "Madison & Vine is a good place for lunch during the week. It's sophisticated yet not pretentious. The tables are very close together and the noise level is pretty high so if you want to have a serious business discussion, probably not the place to do it. The food was excellent and prices not beyond what would be the norm for this type of restaurant mid-town."

  • "The staff needs a crash course on food/cocktail words ASAP..."

  • "Menu shown on open table is not same as restaurant. One server very understaffed. Food was tasty."

  • "Everything was pretty good. It's not going to blow you away but then again neither will the bill. Just a good, solid lunch spot."
