    The daily special steak sandwich was delicious! This was my second time here and the food was better the second time around. Place gets crowed and a little noisy, so going toward the end of the lunch hour is great!

    I came here with my father and a coworker but what drew me to the restaurant in the first place was the architecture and ambiance. It had a good selection of wines to choose from and the appetizers were hard to choose from since all looked delicious! The cheese board was a good choice. Definitely a place I'll check out again.

    I was looking for a place to take my friend for her birthday and found this wonderful gem. This was the perfect place to go after work. The service was lovely. The food amazing and the wine list surperb. It was perfect compromise for someone who wants the outdoor experience without actually sitting outside.it can get a little noisey with all the midtown street noise and the music, but otherwise, a good choice indeed. Looking forward to coming back.

    Lunch for 2: both orders were very late, and not quite what we ordered (or what the menue described). Ate at the bar, friendly bartender but not attentive enough. I had to ask after the food did not appear for a half hour (steak sandwich and nicoise salad). No anchovies on the nicoise. Kitchen seems poorly managed.

    In the last 2 weeks, I have gone to this restaurant twice -- once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the service was abominable. Took forever for the waiter to take our drink order, food order, and bring us the check -- 15 minutes from the time we asked for the check. The first time, at lunch, I ordered the steak salad -- medium rare -- with the dressing on the side. What I got was the NY strip steak entree with sauteed spinach. And the steak was medium well. I waited about 10 minutes before I started eating the steak, hoping to catch our waiter. Never even saw him. So I cut into the steak and it was WAY over cooked. I ended up eating the whole thing anyway, because we were running out of time.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
