This restaurant has so much potential but falls short on service and food. It seems to be poorly run and disorganized.
We’ve been there several times and love it each time! Outstanding food and service. We’ll be back again and again.
Enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner hete tonight. The tapas (calamari, bacon wrapped chicken, and the brochettes of pollo) were delicious. I had the beef tenderloin and my wife had salmon. Excellent dinner and a charming intimate atmosphere. Very attentive service. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
A lovely evening. Glad we pre-ordered the Paella. It was fantastic.
the hostess was prompt and very professional and our waitress was amazingly friendly and well informed about the menu items, and the food was great.
It was wonderful! Went for my birthday, and during the traditional celebration they squirt "wine" in your mouth for 12 seconds, but it went everywhere! Good thing I was wearing a black shirt. I'm assuming it was an accident, but it could have really sucked had I been wearing a white shirt. Food was delicious as always.
We were there celebrating a birthday and they made it so special! Their Sangria is the best we've ever had. The art on the walls is so unique and beautiful! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We will be back to dine there again soon!
Always a hit with the food. Was my wife’s birthday and they celebrated it with the custom Spain celebration. Thanks!
The staff was very helpful with giving recommendations about their food and specials.
Great experience for special occasions. Delicious entrees that were over portioned for one guest made sharing easy. Chicken masala was a hit
However the server didn’t really feel to want to be there.he walked away before I finished talking and had to reorder an item because of it. Excellent authentic food but service seals the deal!!! It’s the finishing ingredient. Nice guy just really mediocre service. I ll be back for round two see if that changes!
Found this Spanish restaurant searching through OpenTable and loved it. Very quiet for a late lunch although the seating area was more than half full. Service was prompt, courteous and delightful and the food was wonderful. Be careful when ordering a full salad as I couldn't finish it, even though I tried really hard. The paella was delicious and was perfectly complimented by the creme brulee cake. Highly recommend visiting Cafe Madrid!
Excellent food and service.
favorite tapas was gambinas en cama, suffed pimientos, bacon wrapped shrimp and pulpo fried and with potatoes. Entree salad was terrible, dry chicken, bitter dressing, wilted greens. Ambiance and service was superb. I have loved Cafe Madrid, but I sense it is overpriced for the experience.
Food was outstanding, service and ambiance were great. Will definitely be returning!
The food was excellent and the waiter recommended a great wine based on our preferences, an unusual feat! The place is very classy but casual and unpretentious, we'll be back!
Wonderful ambiance. Food and wine were great. Most interesting presentation of patatas bravas I have seen!
Great place. Want to come back and try other menu items.
The food is outstanding and very authentic! My favorite restaurant in Salt Lake!
Excellent food, good sangria and service! And don not forget the dessert they are the best!
The coffee and dessert was a little disappointing, but their wine and food was superb
Service was great. I got the seafood pasta, it was not what I expected. Too much sauce. My husband got the lobster and steak I believe. The lobster was overdone. Honestly, I could have gone else where and paid $130 for better food. I will not be returning to Cafe Madrid due to the food.
Awesome food and great wine suggestion. Quick and courteous service. Can’t wait to go back again.
Cafe Madrid is a gem. I had eaten at their former location and remembered the excellent quality of their food. Finally tried their Highland Drive location and was pleased. We will definitely return.
Great food. Fun trying different tapas
Thanks for our server, Andrei! Food was really good.
I contacted Cafe Madrid from Australia as I was coming to Utah for a holiday. I made a booking for 16 guests for my husband’s 50th birthday. The staff were so helpful both via email and telephone. The restaurant was lovely, the service fantastic and the food was
One of the truly greatest dining experiences in the state. Superlative.
Politely greeted grest Spamish music server nicely explained tapas and offered pairing suggestions
Paella was good but a tiny bit disappointing in flavor. I will be going back!
Excellent food and great service. Will definitely go back again.
I have had a wonderful anniversary. Great woman at my side, wonderful concert, day at the museum......going too well you say......why I don’t usually vary at my eating establishments.
If you go to a restaraunt that the carpets have never been cleaned.....leave immediately.
- they forgot the appetizer
- finally brought it....after the salad. Mozzerall had no flavor.
- lamb shank.....mutton....over cooked and tasted old. I called it old hag lamb
- surf and turf... medium rare turned to medium well. Sauce was gross. Lobster over cooked and no flavor
For the price they are charging....Ruth’s chis, the tiburon or the Tuscany. It was bad.
It was bad enough I actually opened my mouth and said something.
Say No to Cafe Madrid
The food was very good but lacked some seasoning. My chicken marsala was a bit on the sweet side which I wasn't expecting. The other meals and appetizer were very good.
We greatly enjoyed celebrating our son's 20th birthday at Cafe Madrid. This same son celebrated his 13th birthday at Cafe Madrid. The food was excellent, the service exemplary, but the fun in celebrating the birthday at Cafe Madrid is the tradition of squirting a stream of juice out of a Bota Bag into the birthday boy's mouth while the guest and servers count to twelve representing the next year's months. Too fun and a great memory! Thank you for a lovely evening!
Delightful ambience, excellent food, good service; a bit pricey.
Mi comentario en español ... Creo que deben supervisar mas seguido lo que dan como comida ... Hay una regla básica de la cocina ... sírvela como si te la fueras a comer tu sino lo harías no lo sirvas ... Pedí una paella y parecía un masa de arroz con conchas para cerdos .... de verdad el cocinero tiene una idea básica de lo que es una paella ? Lo mas seguro es que me sirvieron un recalentado de paella pero que solo daba asco ( creanme que intente comerla ) y pensé decírselos personalmente pero creo que fuera oportuno el momento y sabia que tendría una oportunidad ... Recuerden que la imagen de un negocio no son solo las pinturas, luces y el trato también es y de mas peso la comida. Respeten su imagen y cuiden sus platillos tradicionales.
Fantastic atmosphere to pair with the delicious food. The decor is spot on as well.
It was very good, nice place to eat. I would go back again any time.
Service was very good. Tried a variety of tapas and all were delicious. The sangria was too. It was quiet when we arrived at 6:45 on a Friday but was busier when we left.
