They needed more help in the kitchen and on the floor. The food was not up to usual standards and the servers were spread too thin.

Many people go to the Madonna Inn for the experience and/or nod to tradition. We did the same and enjoyed our lunch at The Copper Cafe. Nothing out of the ordinary was served, but our sandwiches were prepared using delicious, fresh bread with generous helpings. I would go there again for the French dip sandwich. We also enjoyed our view of beautiful flowers outside the restaurant.

Our server suggested both the Eggs Benedict and the Corned Beef Hash. My wife had the Eggs Benedict and I had the Hash. Both were great. The portions were ample and neither of us could finish the meal but that didn't take away from our enjoyment of them.

It was our 40th anniversary. We were seated right at the time of our reservation and our server couldn’t have been better. We had ordered a cake prior to arriving to be served as our dessert. Both the hostess and the server were aware of it. Overall just a great experience.

The pink room at the copper cafe is the only way you’d want to dine in, it’s beautiful. The food was good and the drinks are are tasty and beautifully presented. Make sure to make a reservation and request the pink room.

We love the Madonna Inn, but we went for our daughter's 20th b-day & they were very accommodating with exceptions. Our server did seem to be a bit rushed-never like that atmosphere & don't know why she was rushed because it wasn't busy. Our youngest daughter ordered a frittata & on the menu, it did not list that there would be broccoli in it. It came with broccoli & she does NOT like broccoli. We told our server & at first she was trying to say that frittata's are just made like that & that is not true. You list all ingredients that are going to be in it, especially broccoli! She took it back to the kitchen & on her way she discussed it with another waitress, which we could clearly hear, & she was trying to say the same thing. She came back without a conclusion, so I had to ask what she's going to do & she finally said that she would talk to the manager. The manager did the right thing & took it off our bill, but we shouldn't have had to go through that.

The Copper Café is a great place to come for a bite to eat as you are touring the lovely grounds of the Madonna Inn. The Copper Café has some thing for everyone, including vegan and light fare. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. I recommend the Copper Café for not only a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) but a taste of the Madonna Inn‘s fabulous bakery treats. These include slices of cake like you’ve never seen before, fresh pies and other fabulous delights. Enjoy.

I was actually disappointed with the person who assigned tables. I had a reservation but it felt like we were an afterthought. We were seated
By a window but it was right by one of the entry doors. There was an area with a fireplace that seemed more protected by extra people passing and the wind coming in at us.

We went on a Thursday for lunch and unfortunately the wait staff was very short with us. We’re not sure what caused this but our server told us there weren’t any specials then turned around and told the booth next to us that they had a curry special. The service has gone down dramatically, this place is a novelty now.

Overall great experience dining at the Madonna Inn! The food was excellent and our server was wonderful. The only thing that was a little questionable was my water glass still had lipstick on it, which makes me wonder about how well fishes are being cleaned in the kitchen. Normally that kind of thing doesn’t really bother me but in the wake of COVID, it makes me a little nervous. Other than that, great experience!

Food manager was very nice. Our server only checked on us once after our food was delivered. $60 for two mimosas and two half sandwiches and soups seemed a bit steep but you’re paying for the unique decor.

We were seating right away with our reservation. They knew we were celebrating a birthday and surprised my aunt with a FREE slice of cake to enjoy to celebrate. The staff was great, the food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. LOVE the pink as usual. Makes for a fun backdrop.
