overall a very good time.overall a very good time. We were getting together with friends we had not seen in a long time & the food & ambience were ideal for conversation. Only problem was the internet service went down so they had to take our credit card info by hand5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Bit of Paris on Madison AvenueI have brought so many people to this wonderful bistro since I had lunch there at the end of last year. The bartender makes wonderful cocktails and she is a lovely person. The wait staff could not be nicer - absolutely no NY attitude!
The fish dish, always market fresh, is outstanding,. The desserts are sublime. Someone in our party last Saturday night had profiteroles that were the best since our last trip to Paris. Everything about this bistro is understated, so that the real show stopper - the food - shines through!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwe went to this restaurantwe went to this restaurant the first time as celebrating my gf birthday, The food was good and service was good too..4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis has become my "go-to"This has become my "go-to" spot for lunch when I have vendors in. The food is very good, selection is nice...and $27 for 3 cources can't be beat in this area.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter reading previous reviewsAfter reading previous reviews of this restaurant, we were a little worried, but it turns out for no reason. Our experience at Madison Bistro was wonderful, and we'd gladly return there next time we're in NY. Service was good -- not too much, not too little. They didn't have the wine we wanted, so the server came back with two similar options from which to choose, and the one we chose was excellent. Highlights were the foie gras, the short ribs and the souffles. Quiet little neighborhood place with that cosy, intimate feel.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA real find for a upper westA real find for a upper west sider. Everything was very good, unique and authentic French style cooking. Pleasant and accomodating staff.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped by for a delightfulStopped by for a delightful prix fixe lunch that was superb. Three courses $27 and each course was sheer perfection. How do you beat that?4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Unfortunately,Food was great. Unfortunately, in a table for 2 they brought the wrong dish for one diner. They had to prepare the right course, so we each consumed our entrees separately....which was annoying. The food, once the right food arrived, was terrific. The server was not gracious about accepting responsibility about bringing the wrong entree. I've eaten there before...with no problems. I like it very much and would absolutely return. You may share this commentary with the chef/owner if you so desire.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWE really enjoyed our mealWE really enjoyed our meal at Madison Bistro.
