Our meal was wonderful and we were impressed with the patio ambiance. I also loved our server but the bar tender was very very very slow!

Anniversary dinner. Sat on the patio so the music changes the sound level. We liked it but may not be everyone’s preference.

While our waitress did a great job of making me feel special about my birthday, (special cups and plates) the upstairs room we were in did not have very good ambiance. Downstairs would have been better. Also, I didn’t realize that “calamari steak” was an actual flat piece of grilled squid. I thought it was calamari on top of steak. Make sure you know that before you order! Also, my husband’s steak was more on the rare side instead of medium rare- and slightly cold. I could not try any it was so rare. However, they went to extra effort(thinking they were out) in the wine cellar to find a rare bourbon my husband wanted to try. That was impressive and made my husband extra happy. The drinks were great- but I remember the food being better a couple years ago. A little disappointing this time.

The cuisine at Madeleines continues to be a hit(ish) or miss experience. The meal was disappointing from start to finish. The appetizer, the salad and the entree were lackluster, short on creativity and on presentation. The sole redeeming element of the evening was the service. Our experience was yet another reminder that there is nary a restaurant in the Evansville area that aspires to what I would consider haute cuisine.

We are usually never disappointed when we go to Madeleine's. The food and service were great even during this crazy time of COVID. Would highly recommend Madeleine's for special occasions. Can be pricey but we go expecting that.

The restaurant itself is beautiful has a great feel to it. They were following Covid 19 guidelines very well. The bar service was great and our waitress was very sweet. We ordered crabcakes for our appetizer which were very tasty. Once we got our entrees my husbands was by far the best. He had the veal with mashed potatoes and asparagus. I ordered the pistachio crusted lamb chop, to say the least it was okay. It has quite a few burnt breading pieces and i couldn't even taste the pistachio. The side that came with the lamb were orzo and ratatouille both sides were also just okay... so i would reccomend the restaurant but not the lamb dish sadly.. .

Didn’t disappoint. The patio out back was a perfect place for a relaxed dinner. Service was attentive and the food was the best I’ve had here. Employees were masked and the tables were adequately spaced. The fans and fresh air made us feel comfortable and at ease. We will be back!

We were seated at 6:30pm in a nearly empty restaurant. It was 8:20pm before our entree was served. Other later arriving diners were served sooner than ourselves. Perhaps the mayor and his party (arrived after us) took precedent?

We absolutely loved our experience at Madeleine's and are already looking forward to going back. The lemon drop martini was the best I've ever had. Not so sweet, tasted pure and fresh. The food was outstanding and fun and so was the atmosphere and wait staff! We definitely recommend a vist to Madeleine's.

The food was what made this visit special. Dishes were cooked to near perfection and decent portion sizes. My wife and I left full. The servers were professional and knowledgeable, although there was a little lack in promptness, but their recommendations were spot on. Cocktails were also great. We were sat upstairs where the ambiance was almost hushed, which was really nice for a romantic dinner. The decor was a little tacky. Overall a great experience and we will be going back for other special occasions (Valentines, anniversary, etc)

I like all the food I tried! I had duck with sauteed mushrooms, purple mash potatoes for dinner. My appetizers was seafood dip with wonton chips and mushrooms with lobster and cheese I think. I.had a blood orange margarita which I like. Everything was good it was worth the 127.00 dollars for two.

We both had the stuffed porkchop. Very good but not a fan of the "stacked" style of serving. We were celebrating my husband's birthday which they were told ahead of time. Thought they might offer him a scoop of ice cream or a cupcake or something for dessert but nothing. Think this is poor. Otherwise, good food and service.

This would be a 5 star rating but for slow drink delivery. People who arrived later than we did got their drinks before we got ours. Always frustrating. We were told the delay was because I ordered a mixed drink and everyone else got wine which is faster to pour. Our food was excellent! My husband said his filet the slow drink delivery.

Overall very displeased I think the rub on the steaks over shadowed the flavor of the steak also the silver trays that they serve the steak on were not warm usually those are really hot the salad was warm which I like a cold salad My brother had to duck which was not very good it taste like liver almost. The wine was good and the atmosphere was good bye the way I’m in the restaurant business and Been at it for 40 years I currently run a restaurant.
