The restaurant allowed VERY LOUD patrons in the adjacent booth to continue bothering us as well as other patrons in the same room.

Wonderful Holiday ambience. Beautiful furnishings and table settings. Very romantic. Food offerings were creative, served with flair, and delicious!! Do order the paella as a tapas plate or a dinner.

Really disappointed. We arrived prior to reservation time and waited for about 5 minutes before there was even anyone at the front desk (there were about 10 other people waiting as well). When the hostess finally arrived, and she checked in everyone in the room (more waiting), then we waited for at least another 5 minutes to be seated. When we were finally seated, we discovered that she had given us the wrong menus.
The food was sub par. The Brussels Sprouts were amazing, but that’s it. We ordered salad based on the server’s recommendation. The salad was meh, the beef tenderloin was not a $30 plate, in fact I’ve had much better for much less, and the paella was just not good. Period. If you say you’re a Spanish fine dining establishment, you’d better be sure you have good paella. Cafe Madrid will not be seeing us again. Again, really disappointing. We were looking forward to a really great meal for a holiday date. Instead, we spent a lot of money for really mediocre food when we could have gone somewhere where we knew we could have counted on the value as well as the service and ambience expected. So sad.
Not sure where the good reviews came from, I’ve spoken to several people since who also say they will never go again.

A few suggestions: turn up the heat and have someone help you with decor.

This is a must try restaurant in my opinion. The food is exceptional, the service is always great and the atmosphere is nice and unique. We will be back again and again. I am not a fan of lamb but the lamb shank roast is excellent.

The chicken soup was fantastic. The service was terrible. After bringing the food, the server never returned except to ask about dessert and then later, to bring the check. She never returned for payment so I had to go find the cashier to pay. The noise level was far too high for lunch--turn down the music volume!
