Wonderful RestaurantMaldaners is a lovely spot to eat inside or out. It faces the Old Capitol Bldg in Springfield, Illinois. I loved my Beef Wellington a menu staple and as an appetizer I had a lovely miso soup with duck wontons. The service is excellent and even the TV over the bar had public tv on. I recommend this wonderful restaurant.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I always haveMy husband and I always have a nice time here.

We had wonderful wedding anniversary dinner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMaldaners is ALWAYS good!Maldaners is ALWAYS good! We love to meet our friends there for an above average meal before a night on the town. The food selection at Maldaners caters to all desires and is most often cooked perfectly. A meal for my wife and I with an appetizer and drinks is usually around $100 plus tip.
I'm not a fan of the openness of the dining area, but we slip into ourselves while there anyway :)4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of nine, whichWe had a group of nine, which is a little more difficult to handle. However, the set up we had I would say was inappropriate. A booth was used, which made it very difficult for a couple of people. There were tables available that could have been used, so I was very disappointed in the arrangement provided.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great dining experienceAlways a great dining experience here. We were celebrating a milestone anniversary and were given a lovely quiet table as well as treated to dessert in honor of the occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDress up or down. Loved theDress up or down. Loved the variety of menu items and the food combinations and flavors. Very good deserts. Lunch menu is very different from dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster Bisque was delicious!My wife and I had a great time at Maldaner's even though we were disappointed with their "signature" dish. Our bartender that evening was nice enough, but since we were the youngest ones in that evening and not from the area, she didn't seem too thrilled that we were at her bar. Although she did warm up as time went along, she never gave a vibe that she cared either way if we were there or not.
Our server that evening was great. Very professional, and remembered that it was my wife's birthday and took care of dessert for her. The place was a bit empty for a Friday night, but it also isn't wasn't a great weather weekend for people to visit Springfield, IL. GREAT lobster bisque, the only thing really worth mentioning to get.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Pleasant SurpriseWe had a great dinner at Maldaner's. We were passing through town, and had never eaten there before. What a pleasant surprise! The menu choices were excellent - we had a hard time choosing. Everything was outstanding. Service was prompt and attentive. The wine list had many good wines at reasonable prices. The place itself is delightful - a warm and cozy room which was welcome on the cold and bluster night we ate there.12/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
