Diner Reviews
  • "Went for dinner. Food OK, nothing special. Service slow, but it was very busy. I hear it's great for lunch."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Good choice of salads and high-end cuisine entrees. Convenient mid-town location makes it a natural business lunch spot. Responsive service. Opened promptly at 11:30am and gave us the table we wanted."

  • "The staff-several-had an attitude. They were not very busy, but we ha to ask several times for basics-like salt and ketchup for fries. Not only did they not bring what we asked without repeated asks, they acted as though we were really putting them out. For the price of the food and the snootiness of the staff-the service should have been much better."

  • "Very busy lunchtime. Tables a bit too close. Food was fabulous, service was not.trying to get a waiter's attention was difficult and even after ordering it was a toss up whether the drinks would arrive."

  • "I arrived my party was shown to the worst table in the entire restaurant- near the doorway, in the middle of a non-aisle with lots of traffic all around. Not exactly what I had in mind for a quiet business lunch with a client. There were several other two top tables near windows or away from the door that were marked "reserved". Confused, because I too made a reservation, asked why I got the walk-in table and was told that they included in their reservation a preference to sit at a window, etc. Note made to self. After waiting to speak with the manager, we were given a much better table away from the entrance. The server was great. Food was okay but typical for a midtown place. I'd go back but make sure to request a window seat."

  • "Went for brunch on Saturday. The service was slow - not sure if short-staffed - but order taken by bartender who was not totally familiar with the menu. Food was a bit bland when it arrived and was disappointed that it arrived at the same time as the patrons who came in 15 minutes after I did. Also problems with credit card machine as it took a while to process the order. Overall, this is a nice location and it always seemed busy and vibrant, thus my desire to check out the establishment. Would go back again on a different day to be sure this was just a one-off."

  • "Fun drinks and a great vibe. Food is pricey for the quality ( instant mashed potatoes with meatloaf). But it is a fun place. They should have more of a bar menu rather than a dining menu"

  • "We had a reservation for lunch, but the table was so tight in the middle of the room that we opted for the bar, which was great. We both had the prix fixe lunch and both had the chopped salad. I am glad I did not get the chopped salad as an entree--mostly iceberg lettuce, little else and would not order again. The lamb sandwich was very good and I would recommend it. The only other issue is that is took forever to get our entree and thus caused us to be out of the office for 2 hours--not good. Overall, a bit pricey and amateur service. "

  • "The service was pretty good. The food was alright. I ordered the chicken paillard. The dish comes with arugula and some parmesan cheese. They put way too much arugula. the poor chicken breast was hidden underneath a forest of greens. I found the chicken a bit dry."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was impressive which made my brunch here so much better. Also, the service was good given that they did not have my wine choice which they replaced with a suitable alternative. "

  • "Food was very good. Great lunch spot. My only issue is I feel like I am squeezed in to tight with other patrons. It's a bit loud, but personally does not bother me."

  • "We had a lovely dinner. Cocktails, steamed mussels what a treat. We have already made reservations to return."

  • "Small restaurant on the corner, but huge double doors that open out on to 41st - really nice with the warm weather. The service was great, good looking menu, but the salad I ordered (baby spinach) was considerably smaller than everyone else at the table. It was a good salad, it just wasn't that filling. For example, it said it had mushrooms, goat cheese, and bacon - it was 1 mushroom, cut up in to 4 pieces and each piece had a small piece of goat cheese on it. The bacon was very good. But combined with the small pile of baby spinach, it was just a little underwhelming. I would likely go back though and try something different - its a great location and everyone else seemed to really enjoy their meals."

  • "Great food, ambience, and service. The Long Island Panyonck Cabernet Franc was an added plus. It went beautifully with our salmon, divers scallop and chicken dishes."

  • "The skirt steak is fantastic! Great spot for a quick work lunch."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "Convenient location. Food options limited. Nice wine list. Decent food"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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…"

  • "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."

  • "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."
