Cafe Madison Ratings and Reviews
We had a reservation for two at 6PM on 12/31/17. Our waiter was Edward. He was very professional, friendly and efficient. Was also impressed how all of the wait staff assisted each other with serving each others clients. All tables were occupied. Chefs must have been going crazy. Our food came out in a timely manner, was hot and very good. A very well organized operation. We'd been here a few times in the past but it was the first time we ate in the large dining room. It was a very pleasant experience.
Never have we been more deceived by a façade and ruse of a fine restaurant as we have tonight at the Madison. The worst that we have dine in, seriously! The service was lackadaisical and careless, the food was of poor quality, expensive and served cold, the menu was extremely limited and it was actually raining inside of the building. The décor of the place is impressive which leads one to believe that there’s quality throughout however; don’t be fooled like we were. This place is a finely decorated farce. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone!
Hmm. The Madison wasrecommended by fraternity Brother Murray and Finneyfor an anniversary dinner . Bottom line is my char-broiled Fillet Mignon tasted like liver. My wife doesn’t like me to complain immediately so I ate slowly. While eating looked at me she said her sirloin steak tasted like liver too. Wow, we were on the same page after 32 years. We agreed the appetizers, salad, and soup tasted great but we should have had seafood. A few well wishers asked for feedback and I would never say don’t go, but will share my experience with the beef- perhaps it’s prepared with grace beyond my pay grade- I’m with bone in and fat😜
Great service. Very good crab cakes $34.00. I ordered the crab/lobster bisque which would have been delicious if it had been hot. It was lukewarm. Hubby enjoyed a caprise salad of heirloom tomatoes & mozzarella, dressed with a balsamic drizzle. His entree was a special, a 16oz rib steak -bone in $34.00. The live music was a piano player who kept playing the same tunes over & over again. We did not have room for dessert. Next time, maybe.
Another fabulous dinner during restaurant week fall harvest . Great entrees and spectacular appetizers and dessert. Highly recommend Cafe Madison for any occasion. Our waiter Leo was great and a real asset to the restaurant. He really guided us to the Wine list choices and made the occasion extra special. Cafe Madison never disappoints.
My husband & I have dined at Cafe Madison a number of times. We have NEVER been disappointed. It was Restaurant Week and also my Husband's birthday. So, we decided Cafe Madison was the best choice. I cannot say enough about the food. It was excellent. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Please try our favorite spot. You will not be disappointed.
Our waitress did not get things right. I was brought a salad with dressing on it when I asked it to be on the side. The waitress brought soup that I did not order and she argued with me and said she wrote it down. My husband ordered potatoes with his dinner and the waitress said, why do you want to order potatoes when your dish comes with potatoes. So he said no then. The dinner came without potatoes. When my husband said that she said the dish came with potatoes she argued and said, "I did not I said carrots." She said I can bring you an order of potatoes if you want. She brought out potatoes. She new I was allergic to dairy and gluten. I asked her if the flourless cake had dairy and she said no. I got sick when I got home so I know that made me sick. It will be a long time before I dine at Cafe Madison again.
