Diner Reviews
  • "Was there for a lunch meeting and ordered the Caesar salad w/grilled chicken. Everything was great, with exception of my lunch - the salad could have been better. There was a lack of dressing (so salad was a bit bland) and the grilled chicken provided was awfully dry. I only ate about half the chicken, and a quarter of the salad. Would not recommend this salad."

  • "From start to finish our meals at Madison's were disappointing. The service was however excellent and Todd was amazing! I don't think I will return or recommend Madison's. My boyfriend and my self are both chefs so we know about food. We specifically chose Madison's Grill because of the rave reviews in all sorts of publications and the menu sounded amazing. The steak tar tar was not made with tenderloin and had silver skin and marbling in it. The caesar salad was the quality I would expect at an IHOP. The sea bass smelled so fishy by the time it got to the table we knew that it shouldn't have even been cooked as it was going off. The sticky toffee mini torte was ok but falling apart and was dry. Not the quality we were charged for."

  • "A great experience! We ended up with the private room ,which really suited our group because there was an infant present. There was also a fireplace,It seemed like we were being served in the comfort of our own living room. Excellent entrees,delicious desserts(not too sweet,which was great) Would definitely recommend to many!"

  • "I chose the Restaurant week special, not becuase it was cheap but because it sounded good. It was not. soup was good, but pasta was thrown together and had a chicken bone in the middle. Disappointing."

  • "I always want to like Madison's but each time I go I am disappointed. Had the dining week option as none of the a la carte menu seemed original. Had the seared scallop salad to start; scallops were well cooked but bland, acidity from the apples was toned down. Salmon and prawns main was equally uninspired; scallops had the most flavour of anything tasted this evening. Even the chocolate torte didn't blow me away, although the texture and consistency was excellent. I find that for the price I should get a solid, if not spectacular meal. Equivalent prices in LA or San Francisco would yield Michelin rated restaurants. Service was very good and definitely the highlight of the evening."

  • "I think they pre-made too many portion to prepare for the dinning week crowd which ends up making the salmon and chicken over cook. So as the crepe... Mushy! And the chocolate sauce is too hard for dipping, enough to tell it has been sitting in the fridge for quite a time. Service was excellent, quiet environment and good cocktail."

  • "What used to be a culinary delight now struggles to impress with sub-par food and lack-lustre service. The service issue was due to one server in particular - I noticed other servers were more attentive and what I would expect from a fine dining establishment. Fish entrée was lacking in flavor - completely bland. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert was terrible. Not dense and moist as a pudding should be but dry and crumbly. The caramel was not even warm. Pitiful for a $12 dessert."

  • "it started with sending back 2 pop that tasted off. the steak that was medium was supposed to be rare. one meal was cold and when reheated still wasnt hot. the waiter did not come back to see if the reheat was any better. they did comp the steak."

  • "I dined at Madison's yesterday with several VIPs. We arrived for an early lunch, and a good thing too, because we were able to establish a rapport before the noise level rose alarmingly after 11:30 am. When I made my reservation, I specifically asked for a quiet table to make an intelligent and intelligible conversation amongst five people easier. I am glad I did. Food was fine and prompt service ensured it came on time to get everyone out the door in a timely manner. I had to refill our glasses myself, so no bonus points for attentive service though."

  • "Brought 2 of my friends here for the first time, as the restaurant has great food and can accommodate a celiac diet. We were seated promptly, and everything was fine for the first half of our evening. Our server never returned to our table after our food was brought out (by a different server, the only one in a uniform). Our coffee pots were empty, we wished for water and for the bill. I could not make eye contact with any of the three staff members walking around. Working, for sure, but no one was helping us out. I have never had this experience before at Madison's, and I hope to never again. I found it unsettling."

  • "After a slow start service picked up when they picked up the first cocktails. Soup was outstanding. Meals were excellent. Dessert was so so. Service was attentive. Very nice place for a quiet dinner."

  • "It is certainly not a place that my wife and I could afford to go to often, the tab for 2 of us was just over $300. That being said, the portions (not huge) were a delight for all of the sences. Taste, presentation and aroma were all first rate. The main course, Elk tenderloin, had to be some of the finest meat I have ever had. The service was available, but not too intrusive, and the ambience was elegant. Definately a recommendation for a romantic dinner for two."

  • "Booked in advance of Valentine's day not realizing there would be a set menu for $180 per couple. This did not include any wine. I was disappointed with the amount of food served per course and although my main course of the red snapper was good, the bed of oriental style noodles were mushy to say the least. We overheard other diners complain about the chicken and the noodles. I chose this restaurant as I had a wonderful meal for my 40th and have had great lunches and dinners with friends too. I'd say I found this time to be a little too pricey for the food which was veering on the experimental side of which I'm not a fan. Hope to see this restaurant go back to their basics of uncomplicated fresh ingredients with amazing meat and poultry."

  • "We had breakfast there on a Saturday, the restaurant was not very busy, w only one server working. The server rushed us through our entire meal and managed to get every aspect wrong - gave us room temperature water for tea, two mimosas when we only ordered one, brought the wrong order, brought the wrong side (all the food was mediocre anyway). Considering from seating to getting our first wrong breakfast took less than 10 minutes (that's faster than a Dennys - seems wrong for a restaurant of this calibre!) - we knew he cared less about service and more about getting people in and out. This is our 2nd visit (we waited 3 years after our first disastrous visit to return), but no improvement. Just avoid this place! Longevity doesn't mean good!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed a Valentine's day lunch here- a great alternative for us to avoid the crowds for Feb 14 dinner. Service is always TOP notch and the food was delectable as usual. I had the Manitoba wall eye- and it was the best fish I've ever had. Prepared perfectly! You are missing out if you've not been to the Madison Grill. .bk"

  • "We were 7 guests celebrating 2 birthdays Feb 1st, 2014. We reserved ahead, and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to be in the private room, beautiful. The service was good. Most of the food was tasty and presentation, lovely, the calamari was bland, and the steak a bit tough, but over all good dinner. Some dietary issues were not an issue at all. Would have been nice to have music playing, in that room, but we entertained ourselves just fine. We were the last table to leave, the staff did not rush us out. Over all, a great evening."

The apple tart was to die for, the bourbon/vanilla ice cream was the perfect topper. All in all a great dinner experience."

The services was exemplary; everyone had a great meal. And the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend Madisson's Grill."

  • "Started out with the steak tartare. Excellent. The steak was tender and fresh, the slices of cucumber on the bottom gave the raw meat a wonderful refreshing spin. I ordered the rare bison striploin. It was cooked perfectly, but the seasoning was a bit on the salty side and kind of a generic steak spice. (the steak was sliced perpendicular length wise, so the seasoing was a bit much when eating 1/2 the height steak). The sides were garlic mash and sauteed brussels sprouts and proscuitto. Not bad, but not that interesting either. The portion size was pretty lacking, for a $40 steak. Friends' tenderloin was very good though. As was the osso bucco."
