    The midtown location just a few blocks from Grand Central makes this the perfect place for after work get-togethers, or lunch time celebrations. I've been here for lunch and dinner and the food is consistently good. The atmosphere is chic yet laid back. If you are ever at a loss about where to eat in midtown, Madison & Vine is a great choice.

    I went with a friend-we work in the neighborhood. Nice place, decor. Waitress was friendly and checked on us frequently without hovering over us, food was great the prixe fixe menu was a bargain! The noise level was too high....I found myself yelling at times to hear my friend. We were there at 6 pm, so it wasnt a late night crowd.

    We've been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed the good food and lovely decor, but we'd always been there during off hours. This time we came during the dinner rush, and the noise level was crushing, plus I had to ask them twice to turn down the music so we could hear each other without shouting. We like the restaurant, but the noise makes me think twice about going back.

    Went for dinner with a friend and it was very loud because of the bar crowd. We were squeezed into a table by the bar with little breathing room. Food was decent but service very slow and we had to flag down a waiter several times. Very nonattentive. Had a better experience last time I was there.

    The food was very good (though I thought it could use a little more salt and herbs on the vegetables and mashed potatoes were a little bland). Service was great - had a wonderful server. Lots of choices for wine by glass. AND if you take your receipt from dinner upstairs to Bookmark's rooftop lounge after dinner you get 10% off drinks for the rest of the night! Awesome outdoor space!

    No one has told these folk that they need to be able to serve the 2 course prefix in 45 mins at lunchtime. My emphatic complaint after waiting at least 15 min for first course rattled the server who did not handle it well.

    We had a reservation for three people, which the restaurant kept and kept well, giving us a special spot away from the crowd. Our reservation was for 1 o'clock, which we knew would be the height of the lunch rush and it sounded like that. But once we passed 1:45 it calmed down. Luckily for us, we were not in a hurry. We took our time, enjoying a drink and catching up. We put in an order late, and by the time it arrived the crowd had thinned appreciably. The food was modestly good, but then we kept it simple. The service was top notch, very attentive even when the restaurant was at its busiest. All in all, a place to come back to, just not at 1. .

    The restaurant is very small but yet it took 1/2 hour for our shrimp cocktail appetizer to arrive and another 1/2 hour for our lunch to arrive. The steak salad that we ordered had 4 tiny slices of steak on a bed of greens. No effort was put into making the plate look appealing. We walked out feeling just as hungry as we did when we walked in. Not impressed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/4/2013
    I had been wanting to go to this restaurant for some time as I pass by it regularly. I made reservations a few days in advance (and there was plenty of availability around the time I wanted). But when I got there, the table they had reserved was almost in the doorway and on a very cold evening, it was unbearable. It was the only talble available, but when I asked if all the others guests had reservations, all I got was a shrug. They had a limited beer selection (no non-alcoholic selections) and while the burger itself was good, the promised "beefsteak tomato" was too green to recognize. Ruined the evening with an old friend I hadn't seen in some time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/13/2013
    Met a friend for brunch. The place was cute and quiet - perfect for a catch-up session. There was one server on the floor and as it got busier, we got lost. His backwaiter seemed no help at all and the manager/hostess never lifted a finger. Although the food was delicious, it took a half hour for our desserts to come out. I saw the server mixing cocktails. The waiter apologized and comped them saying that the "ice cream was too hard to serve." I thanked him, asked for the check as I was now in a hurry to leave, and had to wait another 15 minutes for the bill. All in all, I enjoyed my experience very much but my sympathies go out to the server as he was one guy in a sea of guests and his good service got lost in the shuffle.
