Filet Mignon and North Atlantic Lobster
A filet mignon and a North Atlantic Lobster. Served with fresh lemon & drawn butter
It was such a great experience and the food was delicious. Great place to have a birthday dinner or anniversary
Excellent! But wish they had gluten free dessert option other than ice cream or sorbet.
Love coming here looking forward to going back soon. It's been a regular place to stop on our trips to the beachLove coming here looking forward to going back soon. It's been a regular place to stop on our trips to the beach
We love this place because of the ambiance and service. The food was pretty terrible.
The reviews we read before making our reservation indicated this was the best steak house in the area. We were disappointed with the rib eye steaks. They were tough. There must be better options in the area.
Fantastic! Took my mom for her birthday and we had a lovely time. Definitely try the food, drinks, and dessert. We each got a steak which was generously portioned and came with a baked potato as well as a salad. We split a bottle of wine and took a slice of the champagne cake back to the room. The pink steakhouse was such a fun spot to visit and perfect for a special occasion.
Best lamb chop I ever had in my life
Mediocre food, horrible service (rude, extremely disgruntled and passive aggressive staff, especially our waiter Derek), cool ambiance but that's about the only positive thing I can say.
Allie was the best waitress we have ever had. The booth was super spacious and my daughters had the best time.
Stayed at the hotel on our way from San Rafael to Thousand Oaks. Our dinner was wonderful and we had the best server Derek. We look forward to to being there for our next trip in August.
Madonna Inn's Gold Rush Steak House made our anniversary extra special. Highly recommend. <3
I went here for my birthday with my fiancé, because I’ve always wanted to go to the Madonna Inn since I was a kid living in Maine. Not only did this place meet my expectations it exceeded my expectations. We were served too much food, and had to be rolled out but the cute balloon, the goblets, the pink champagne cake all made me feel like a princess and the Gold Rush aesthetic helped fuel that fever dream. I can’t wait to make the trek again! Even my fiancé who isn’t impressed by much said it was one of the top birthday celebrations he’s ever been apart of.
My husband had never eaten here and I wanted him to have the experience. It is such a great value.
It is expensive but the food is excellent.
We had a wonderful experience
what a wonderfully unique adventure! the food was great and the cloud drink was amazing!
Wonderful location for a very special dinner. Food, decor, service are exceptional.
Wonderful food, great experience. Incredible service
We celebrated our 25th anniversary and would recommend this dining experience to anyone celebrating a special occasion. Our server Sharon really took the time to make it extra special by bringing a balloon to our table that read “Happy Anniversary” she also brought us a slice of pink champagne cake to top our dining experience. Sharon allowed us time to enjoy our sparkling wine before taking our order. Sharon and Leo both tended to us the entire time. The food was exceptionally perfect as we had expected. Filet mignon was tender and perfectly medium as requested. Highly recommend this dining experience for those who appreciate an exceptional steak and service.
As kitschy and gaudy as this place looks, it is amusing and a unique fun experience.
While the menu may look pricy, in the end it was a great value. Their portions are large and top-notch quality. The staff was so friendly and helpful making it a lovely experience. We went here just for fun and ended up loving the place and looking forward to returning. I, surprisingly, highly recommend visiting. During our covid visit they were open, left tables open as buffers, with limited capacity, they followed distance, mask, cleanliness rules well. Dont forget to stroll thru the hotel and visit the quite unique upstairs gift shop, where you can find unique items including clothing.
Catered to perfectly
I forget how good the food is at Madonna's! Will definitely coming back more often
Excellent service! And the food was fantastic!
One of us had filet & lobster, the special, and one of us had halibut. Everything, soup, salad, rolls, nice hot baked potatoes, but the halibut was a small portion and very bland.
Our waitress was very friendly and great service.
Great experience eating at this restaurant. Great food, great service.
First time dining at Madonna’s. Atmosphere was nice, food was great.
The experience was fantastic.
Everyone should stop by and eat dinner. The waitress was second to none. She was attentive, pleasant, welcoming, and made the entire dinner. Will be going back again and again.
The night overall was great. Only issue was our filet mignon was a bit under cooked. Other than that we had no issues.
The service was fabulous! The food was excellent as usual. The make you feel like family when you walk in.
This place is an experience you should be willing to pay for before you walk in the door. It was 100% perfect for my daughter's 17th birthday. Food is good - not a culinary adventure, but they know how to cook a steak and fish so you can't argue with it. Service was on point and very gracious... AND they surprised my daughter - unasked - with a free, enormous piece of quite delicious cake for her birthday. And the decor... well, that's what you're paying for, so all I can say is, enjoy!!! It does not disappoint.
The drinks were delicious. We had an appetizer of avocado toast which was devine. The New York steak I ordered had an amazing taste but was a little dry and chewy despite being cooked medium.
This was honestly a pretty terrible experience. My husband and I ordered medium steak and they came out fully rare. We were sat next to a child’s birthday party that was extremely rambunctious. For the price, we expected way more.
My boyfriend and I came here for a date. We both loved the service, our waters were refilled almost immediately each time we drank them. The food and ambiance are great too. We go every time we come into San Luis Obispo now. The goblet drinking cups is a souvenir we make sure to buy every time as well.
Everything was wonderful. The ambiance, the service, the food. I can’t say enough good things💜💚
This place is outrageous but worth a trip for the ambiance alone. The dinner was expensive, though I did have the lobster tail. Went back the next day for breakfast. Will definitely go again!
My husband & I loved our first experience. I love pink & everything was pink 💕
The ambiance can’t be beat! Such a fun, pink spot!
Service and food were amazing - even our drinks from the bar were amazing!
Great service! And the pink champagne cake was delicious!
Just come for the Pink Cake. The quality of beef is not a priority here. I think they smoke the meats so they are more tender, but I don’t want a Smokey flavored Rib Eye. Sorry.
Everyone at the restaurant was extremely friendly, and made my Birthday Celebration that more special!!!!!!! The ambiance, food, and cake hit the spot!!! Thank You!!!
