Second visit to the Madison....
Second visit to the Madison.... the service was exceptional. Waiter was extremely professional and a wonderful sense of humor. Overall a very nice experience. Food was great and presentation was attractive.
Some "regular" customers were quite loud and brash.... seem to think they were the only ones there. Waiter did apologize for their rudeness but not much else he could do.
Would go back again.

Service is slow, so it's not
Service is slow, so it's not a place to go if you have limited time. It's a very quiet restaurant with a more formal ambience - so it's a great place for a business lunch, group event, or special occasion. The menu is a bit limited, but generally well-seasoned and well-prepared.

I have I visited the Grill
I have I visited the Grill many times. The service and food are always excellent!! However, The last two times I have dined there have been large groups..My thought ( and the thoughts ofI my guests ) were that the dining room was not large enough to accommodate the groups and as the noise level was too high. Last night I had to select a spot to dine and instead selected the Mac for its quieter ambience. Perhaps the larger groups could be accommodated in a seperate room?

We had a lovely evening at
We had a lovely evening at Madison's. The food was very good and the service impeccable. The only disappointment was the location of our table. We reserved in advance indicating that this was a special occasion. Our table was adjacent to the coat check room. Next time we will insist on a better location.

I've been here several times
I've been here several times and will return again for lunch or dinner. I'm looking forward to warmer weather so I can try the patio. Service is amazing. The staff is well informed and their suggestions for food and wine were spot on the money. Portion sizes are on the smaller side so are perfect for those of us who enjoy a great experience trying new things without any guilt and you can actually enjoy an appetizer and a meal.

Special dinner out
Took my lady out for her birthday, as she had been there for lunch before and I have never been. I ordered the rib eye steak and she went for the tenderloin. Both were absolutely delicious, cooked just as ordered and I couldn't get enough of the Rosemary Smashed Baby Potatoes. A nice bottle of wine and a couple of after dinner "special coffees" topped things off. The only tthing better than the food was the service, It was a relatively quiet night and our waiter paid close attention to us and made sure we felt welcomed without being intrusive.Our wine glasses were kept full and he even made sure our after dinner coffees arrived just as we were on our last sips of wine. Nice finish to an excellent night out.

Excellent meal, Outstanding service
Would highly recommend this restaurant. Attentive service paralleled by an excellent meal. Bright and classy decor. Will definitely be back. One of best steak dinners had in a long time.

Nicely Done Dining
Treated good friends to a special night out.
On the May Long Weekend Edmonton is sadly quiet and many restaurants are closed so I was pleased to have this choice.
Have used Madison Grill successfully for special occaisions in the past.
We were treated to a soothing evening of great service and good food.
The prawns were a suitable starter with subtle flavours and a welcome freshness.
My venison was done to perfection as was the lamb combo- great to have the little lady singing praises early on!
I hope the steaks were up to standard- friends from BC tend to pick Alberta Beef and it looked great.
The Sable Fish had a few bones and was described as "good".
Service was exceptional and well paced.
We shared a very nice dining experience!

We were married here 3 yrs ago and everyone commented how great the food was. We've been here for brunch before and it was really good. The restaurant is small and cozy. Parking is limited. This time we visited during the evening and I highly recommend the seafood risotto. It's an appetizer but flavours are rich and wonderful. Due to current construction around the area the place is pretty empty which meant the service was impeccable. Price is on the high end, however, once you've tasted the food, you'll forget you even have a wallet! Highly, highly recommend it.

great business diner
I had a very significant serious business meeting in Edmonton. I selected Madison because I was staying at the Inn. The person I was meeting with arrived about 4 and went into MG for a cocktail. We ended up spending the whole evening at the table. The staff recognized the importance of our meeting and were very courteous respectful of conversation.
The food was very good; tasty, well seasoned, well presented. The important thing for this evening for me was the pace and it was perfect for the meeting conversation I was having. We had a couple of $150 bottle of wine that were outstanding as well.
An overall great experience including my stay at the Inn.

Lovely spot for dinner
Nice ambiance, quiet and classy. The menu offers a good range of choice. The appetizers we had were very yummy as we're our main courses. The service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.
I have eaten lunch at the restaurant before and have had an equally pleasant experience. In my opinion, The Madison Grill is a really solid choice for an upscale, delicious meal in Edmonton. I try to go in whenever I'm in town (I live in TO).
5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've dined here many times & always offers incredible service. The manager is a riot and very welcoming. Our server's for the evening, Todd & Brett were formal, professional but personable and not at all stuffy. I think the service is what makes this restaurant stand out against a improving dining scene downtown.
The food is good quality other than the over abundance of salt. We've noticed this the past 3 times and wish the feed back would be taken seriously that the flavors should stand out beyond seasoning.
The music and uniforms need serious updating. The room is one of the most stunning in Edmonton but it seems as if the style of music and outfits is stuck in the early 90's. Easy improvements & could be the #1 restaurant in Edmonton.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable date night at Madison's on Friday evening. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding.

Was missing several offerings. Needs to be updated.

When my business lunch went
When my business lunch went a little long and we were amongst only a few left in the restaurant, the hostess offered us a complementary dessert. Very nice touch!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best place for a business lunch
No holds barred, Madisons is the best place to conduct business over lunch in Edmonton. One can enjoy excellent food in elegant surroundings where the tables are well spaced for private discussion.

Amazing server Glenn
I have taken multiple guests here as Edmonton Tourism and everything us always exceptional and my guests note the same. This was my second experience with Glenn and he was lovely. Perfect timing. Not too all over us and great recommendations !

Diamond in the Rough
A quaint, elegant restaurant in the heart of downtown Edmonton that is currently "under construction". Despite the mess outside, the Grill provides a lovely meal in a nicely appointed dining room with exceptional service.

Celebrated our first wedding anniversary with dinner. Our server was wonderful, very efficient, helpful and affable. His manners were impeccable. The food was tremendous, from a fresh bread, appetizer, delicious house salad and beautiful main dish. Perfectly prepared and certainly good value. A memorable meal.

My husband and I went to Madison Grill to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The food was fabulous and the wait staff very attentive.

a class act
Madison's grill does everything right. VG service & was followed up by Maitre d'hôtel insuring all was well. A little on the expensive side but not exorbitant. My clients chicken & my steak was top notch in presentation & taste.

great place to take someone special
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Evereything was perfect,very good dinner.My only concern was the service started too quick. But, after letting them know that we were not in a rush, we had a wonderful evening.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great night out
Madison's was great - as always. The menu has changed so we tried new dishes this visit and we were impressed. We booked the reservation to celebrate our birthdays and were greeted with complimentary champagne and sparkling juice (I am pregnant). Very thoughtful of them. We started with the seafood medley risotto - amazing flavour! The tempura shrimp were so tasty and the chimi churri added a little spice to the dish. For the mains I had the chicken supreme and fingerling potatoes - the mushroom cream sauce on the chicken is to die for and the chicken was so moist. My husband had the tenderloin which was perfection and the demi glaze was very good. We ordered the apple tart for dessert with the inn made ice cream - the perfect ending!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. Neither of us had been before but had heard good things about it. Everything was phenomenal, however we were one of only two tables the whole night, so I wouldn't have expected service or food to be lacking. Our server Todd was lovely and attentive and the food was presented beautifully. All portion sizes were very generous and cooked to perfection. We had the tuna carpaccio and lamb spanakopita for our starters, the venison and 7oz tenderloin for our mains, and shared the chocolate marquise for dessert! We would highly recommend all of our dishes!!

This was a very lovely evening. We had the 6 course dinner. The food was incredible. The menu and presentation lovely and the service was professional and attentive.

A Reliable Gem
A great place that makes special occasions feel even more special. The room is gorgeous, food is delicious and the service understated and professional. Keep the baker too - the breads were awesome!! Other restaurants take notice please!!

The Union Bank Inn & Madison's Grill offers the perfect spot for a weekend away. Overlooking a quiet park in the Heart of the Theatre & Music District, The dining is deluxe & breakfast is included in the price of your room. As for a contemporary room overlooking the park 7 and a table for 2 near the Fireplace.

Appetizers were fantastic. We both had the tenderloin and it was sensational. Possibly the best steak in Edmonton.
Dessert was excellent and the service was perfection.

Amazing night out
My husband and myself had dinner here on October 5. We were seated at corner table for two, which was private enough for both of us to talk and enjoy our meal. We started with the Curry Kahlua Prawns, on recommendation from the server. They were so delicious we ate it with our hands and licked off all the sauce from our fingers! I had the 7 oz beef tenderloin and my husband had the Elk Meatloaf, which was to die for. I've never had such an amazing meal in my life! I would definitely come back here again and we loved the service we received that night. Definitely one of the best date nights I've ever had.

I always enjoy going to Madison's Grill for lunch. The food and service are great and the restaurant is very elegant.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This evening was a special celebration for us and Madison's delivered. We look for great food, a reasonable wine selection and professional service. Most of all we appriciate room to visit with friends & family without having to compete with other conversations because the tables are so close. For us Madison's earned five stars on all counts. A major bonus is we did not feel we were being up sold at any time . Thank you for that.

Good Food and Service to All
As past patrons, we knew that lunch would be very good, with attentive service. Our latest visit also demonstrated the importance of the management of the restaurant as a whole. We were impressed by how well staff managed a loud and potentially difficult customer who arrived after we were seated. The staff provided service to that group in a manner that minimized the chance of a situation developing that would have adversely impacted the enjoyment of the rest of us.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing service, food was ok
The food was good but I paid $36 for the vegetarian option that I could have easily made at home for about $3. My friend said her non-vegetarian option was very good and was only about $6 more. It's probably a great place to go if you're not vegetarian. The dessert we ordered was very bland and the only thing that was good about it was the fruit. I stopped eating it because I felt it was a waste of calories. The room was very nice and the service was excellent. The waiter made a great wine recommendation which lived up to his words. Also, the menu that is up on open table is not current.

One of our favourite restaurants
One of our favourite restaurants in Edmonton. Good and varied food, a limited but good wine list, attentive service, and no background music (though we have enjoyed the occasions when you have had a small group providing live music).
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Leave it too the chef!!
I booked supper for my husbands birthday. Waiter acknowledged his birthday when he arrived at our table. We chose to do the chefs tasting menu with wine pairing. Excellent!! Heads up though you have no idea what you are going to be served. Brett, our server was extremely knowledgable about both food and wine. Was a nice romantic dinner. Would definitely recommend and return.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebrated 33 wedding anniversary; perfect choice. Great atmosphere, friendly and prompt service, varying menu, decent wine selection, excellent food. I had my favorite 18-year-old single malt after. All around great dining experience. I was even able to order flowers (on line) for the table. We'll be back!

Friday date night...
Met up for a double date with friends, and the service was excellent! Attentive but in that subtle non-intrusive manner that is rare these days.
We were able to enjoy conversation and the food without feeling rushed.
