A word from The Madison Bar and Grill
The Madison Bar and Grill is filled with an ambiance and class that is usually reserved for Manhattan eateries. The formal dining room is cleverly decorated in a 1940s style reminiscent of a chic roadside inn. The décor works an evocative, magical mood, with bare wood floors, wainscoted walls, soft lighting and subtle touches from a bygone era.

Patrons can also enjoy The Madison’s eclectic American Cuisine at the bar, or, from April-November, outdoors in an al fresco cafe that wraps around the street corner.

Be sure not to miss The Madison’s Weekly Events, including the Sunday Jazz Brunch, First Seating, Tuesday Night Martini Madness, Thursday Taco Night and Endless Happy Hour. The restaurant also offers Private Parties and Off-Premises Catering.

The Madison Bar and Grill is a great place for families, professionals, romantic dinners or anyone who likes to unwind and enjoy great food, drinks and service in a sophisticated, comfortable eatery.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went there this week for Restaurant week. The food was delicious! Try the crab cake. Yum!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Outdoor dining was pleasant and enjoyable. Outside tables were quiet enough for conversation yet the atmosphere was high energy. The dining was casual and not rushed. Excellent experience"

  • "We ate there on a saturday night with two small kids outside, it was beautiful! the good was good, but I felt my dish wasn't quite as good as I remembered their food in the past. I would still go back though, I think I just didn't order the best thing (grouper). We really like this place and they have a good kids menu, but the kids really disliked the mac 'n cheese."

  • "Very enjoyable restaurant. There service is excellent."

  • "The Easter Brunch was OK. The food was fair and they did not refill the serving dishes too frequently. The brunch price included a drink, but the server never said anything about it and we only realized it when the bill came."

  • "Key lime cheesecake had no flavor need to improve or take off menu completely."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I spent over $160 plus tip for a truly awful meal. Food appeared to be prepared in advance and in bulk. Seemed to have been warmed up in a microwave, not sure, but it was one of the most disappointing "special occasion" dinners I've ever had."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Dinner was delicious and reasonable for quality of food. Make sure you go before 8 for 1/2 price drinks. Ambience is relaxing and warm."

  • "Love the brunch buffet. Great spread and there's a chocolate fondue fountain!"
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "I've been to Madison's several times (each time being consistent and delicious) and this time was for my birthday dinner. The food was just average. I thought the wasabi grouper was totally lame - there was a little pile of wasabi on the plate which hardly qualified as being "wasabi-flavored". The massive and mushy pile of rice reminded me of food served in a soup kitchen. The portion was entirely too big. I loved the oysters as an appetizer but the quesadilla was also lame. It didn't have that cheesy inside that you want - just dry and under seasoned. Overall, this was disappointing. The service was good but not enough for me to go back again."

  • "Madison's always a great spot to stop in for lunch or enjoy a nice dinner.....service has always been good and the food is as well. Nice menu. When in NYC and you want to get back to the other side of the River, this is the place to go."

  • "I live in Hoboken and the Madison Bar/Grill has been on my list of favorites for years. I've enjoyed both brunch and dinner with friends and the food, service and atmosphere has always been consistently great. The live music on Sunday was a great touch."

  • "I had dinner with a group of friends here and they everything lived up to my expectation. The food was great, the servers were very good and the scenery was beautiful. I would go back."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "We were there on a Thursday night and 2 of us ordered from the Mexican menu (Thursday taco night). It was some of the worst Mexican food I've ever had. My friends chicken dish from the regular menu was decent. The onion soup dumplings were the best thing. Based on my food experience not sure if I'd go back."

  • "Warm inviting staff and consistently good food keeps us coming back to this neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 6/14/2013
  • "I had my birthday here- it was great. They were very accomodating for my guests arriving late, and with 8 girls we could get a tad irritable. They were very nice and we had blast- great food, AMAZING martini list, fabulous prices! We will be back!"
    Dined on 6/7/2013
  • "I have always liked this neighborhood bar in Hoboken. It has a touch of class and the menu offers several options."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "Went for Mother's Day. They had no tables for their special brunch, so I booked a later table. We got there a bit earlier after walking around Hoboken and they were able to seat us anyway. Service was good, food was very good. I would go back."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "Despite being so busy for Mother's day our waitress and waiters at the buffet were so pleasant and helpful... Thank you all for making it a wonderful day; the buffet was delicious and well kept up!"

  • "I was looking for a place to meet family that was convenient to New York and New Jersey and this fit the bill. The food was as expected, the service was good. Only complaint was that it was loud and a bit tough to hear, but it is a "Bar and Grill"!"
    Dined on 3/19/2013
  • "Always,always great service and food. I took my young daughter there for dinner and she wanted to order off the grown-up menu and not the kids menu. The hostess and our waitress really made her feel like a big girl that evening with how nice and attentive they were. The food was very good, from the appy to the dessert. Love this place!"
    Dined on 3/11/2013
  • "I've been to Madison Bar and Grill a few dozen times, but particular time they missed the mark. I think they were understaffed becuase it took forever to get our drink order, forever to get our appetizers and then my fish sandwich was served cold (including cold fries). Generally a good place to eat though."
    Dined on 3/3/2013
  • "There was a patron with 2 little boys there. The boys became restless and screamed, ran around the restaurant From front to back stomping their feet. So loud we could no hear each other talk no less the specials being recited. The staff didn't even notice and did nothing. No adult management present to control"
    Dined on 2/22/2013
  • "Food was decent. Service was quick at first, then slowed down a bit. Parking in the garage was nice, but you had to spend $60 to get the parking for free."
    Dined on 2/17/2013
  • "A still casual find in Hoboken, food is decent and tasty and the place can be vibrant and packed. We had the MBG burger this time, what a great pick: juicy meat on a tasty bun and crispy fries."
    Dined on 2/10/2013
  • "Food was delicious, price was great. We love The Madison!We had steak, chicken fish...all were delicious. Love my wasabi grouper!!"
    Dined on 2/6/2013
  • "Extremely loud in the dining room and our server was slow, but everyone was friendly and the food was delicious."
    Dined on 2/2/2013
  • "Met some family members at the Madison for dinner. We don't see each other very often, so it was nice that the evening was such a success. The service was professional and helpful. The food was really good -- everyone had the fixed price meal. What a deal! And it was quiet enough to actually have a conversation to catch up."
    Dined on 1/14/2013
  • "Went for new years $65 Prix Fixe which i usually despise. Have to say that it was actually worth the money, had the short rib ravioli and the 3 cheese tortellini and white chocolate mousse. Food was amazing and we weren't rushed which is usually the way special occasions like this go. Night couldn't have been better there."
    Dined on 12/31/2012
  • "We were a group of 6. The restaurant was crowded early on a Friday evening. A lot of young families were eating near the bar. We were seated after the hostess confirmed we would be 6 (only 4 had arrived). The warm focaccia and dip were a treat. Our drinks arrived promptly, and everyone enjoyed their food. Our group had everything from sandwiches to the risotto special to fish dishes. We didn't try the first seating menu (before 7), but it looked like a good value, so we hope to try it next time."
    Dined on 12/21/2012
  • "Great food, and good friendly service. Was somewhat noisy."
    Dined on 11/20/2012
  • "The only reason I gave fair for service was because I belive our waiter was new (not familiar with the menu or wine list ect.). Don't get me wrong, he was trying, but The Madison is usually exceptional for service so this particular night was subpar for that reason only. Hey, he'll get there :)"
    Dined on 11/12/2012
  • "We have been going to Madison for years - it is casual yet elegant in the dining room, with a vibrant bar scene just a velvet curtain away. The food is excellent, and the servers just the right level of friendly. Great place."

  • "had not been here in a while. thought it was good but not much had changed. small details were missed but still very very good. almost seemed like people working there were a little bored... they were attentive and did as they were told.. but something was off"
    Dined on 8/28/2012
  • "We were a party of six and had a great time at the Madison. Food was good, nothing very special when it comes to the menue but kind of down-home. Noise level in the dining room is quite high so it makes conversations a bit hard."
    Dined on 7/13/2012
  • "Had lunch. Salads were great and turkey burger cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 6/29/2012
  • "As always, the Sunday Brunch was excellent. We were there for Father's Day and they did not rush us even though they were packed, everything was done with a smile. Great staff and yummy food. The oysters and shrimp cocktail were amazing, as was the lox! Yum!"
    Dined on 6/17/2012
  • "On a busy corner as you enter Hoboken, this restaurant greets you. The outdoor tables have a nice privacy from the street..iron railings and flowers. We had salads for lunch...two different types and they were both wonderful. The service was great and very accomodating. Although there was a lot of activity going on around us, we had a lovely feeling of being connected with the exterior and yet enjoying our own space. Madison Bar and Grill is a place you should experience....I don't think you will be disappointed."
