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.
We had the best experience for our anniversary! Thank you so much for the amazing food and atmosphere.
This was our 3rd experience at Madeleines, and once again very pleased. The music was a nice mix and not too loud. We started with the steak and gorgonzola crostini, and lobster mushroom caps. My husband and I split the 14oz. New York strip and mashed potatoes . Cooked to perfection but the steaks temperature was less than hot.(didn’t stop us from eating it though) Our server Charles was helpful with his recommendation of the Elderberry martini which I will order again. Madeleines is a little gem.
This used to be my favorite place in town for ambiance and quality food, but recent changes to the menu and wait staff has made this restaurant just “ok”. For the price you pay, “ok” just isn’t acceptable. Please go back to your old menu and stop trying to be trendy...
Amazing chef with exotic dishes if your adventurous. We had Camel Curry and it was unbelievable. You can also have steak and pasta dishes as well. The garden patio outside is beautiful! Hands down the best restaurant in Evansville!
Perfect, as always!
Madelines has one, if not the, most refined dining experience in Evansville. Their menu always offers items you will not find anywhere else in town, like camel or soft shell crab.
Servers are consistently knowledgeable and friendly. The speed that food comes out is slower than their casual competition, so expect a longer dining time.
Their bar is well stocked with possibly the best bourbon selection in town. Prices on rare ones aren't going to excite you, but you get to name your price when no one else has it.
As far as the rest of the menu prices, they are very fair, but definitely not cheap. If you order steak, seafood, and alcoholic drinks you can spend anywhere from $50-$100 per person.
I have no qualms about the value of what I'm buying, and I would easily recommend to others for a special night.
One additional note - when the weather is right their outdoor patio is incredible. They've setup an oasis in downtown Evansville that I cannot recommend enough. Ben Dahlquist was playing live music during our dinner, and he was a perfect fit. Light humor and music that enhanced without intruding on dinner. That guy has a great personality, and I hope to hear him again.
Sat outside on a nice September evening. Wonderful patio area. Food was delicious.
Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
We had a lovely evening and highly recommend! The menu and food were fabulous! If ur a wine snob - you’ll love the wine menu. Our service was good and waiter did the best he could. I didn’t give a 5 because he should have had help. Clearing dishes was not prompt, stacked several to clear table and at this level, should have been more professional. There was no music upstairs and it would have been nice. We’ll be back!!
The overall experience was fine, the menu is way over priced for the taste of food and portion amount. They were out of several things on the menu, both food and drink, the filet mignon was not as good as it should have been for 34$ plus all the side orders are in the 10-20$ range just for sides! I would recommend it, just not a place to eat at often.
Food was good, but quality does not hold up to price - $200 for four people: water, no alcohol, one appetizer, one salad, four entrees, no dessert, and no coffee. Ouch! In addition a medium-well filet was ordered, but the steak arrived butterflied, burnt looking, and dry. And, although closing time was at 10 pm, our group felt we were rushed to leave by our server, as we were the last table remaining at 9:05 pm.
Best experience I have had at a restaurant. Deffinately going to be returning!
Excellent food and outstanding service. Best steaks in the Tri state!!
A great place for dinner nestled in downtown Evansville. Outstanding wine list!
It's always a joy to visit Madeleine's. The atmosphere is unique, the staff treats you like royalty, and the food is a delicious adventure.
Our server was amazing! She was very friendly and accommodating. She recommended the shrimp and grits dinner, and it was incredible with wonderful flavors.
Always a great experience!
Excellent. Steak great as always. Waiter helpful and nice.
Wonderful place to have dinner with my wife. The atmosphere, food, drinks and service were outstanding. Will definitely go back.
Fantastic food and whisky selection. Staff was very knowledgable and were happy to provide recommendations. Everything we ordered was better than expected. Interesting entrees that you will not see other places. Very interesting pairings. Will be back when I find myself in the area.
The food, ambiance and service were FANTASTIC!!! Shelby was THE BOMB!!! We would love to have her take care of us again!!! She made our evening more enjoyable each time she interacted with us and she provided superior service🙂!!!
This was our first visit. I had the porkception my wife had the chicken with strawberry gravy. The pork was alittle overcooked and a bit dry but was very good overall. My wife got a leg 1/4 not a breast and the leg was tough. The pork was $42 and the chicken was $38 which is high for evansville. I would not consider this to be a 4 or 5 star quality even though the pricing is. We had a nice time the place is nice. The outdoor patio is very nice. No menu or entree prices could be found on line. However they seem to pride themselves on the array of liquor they carry. Average overall and too high.
Everything was wonderful as usual!!
Perfect restaurant for a special occasion!! Loved the dining choices!
Great food but poor service
The food was excellent. Ordered a drink we had seen on the online cocktail menu, server did not know what is was, bartender said they knew, but the drinks that came out were not the same as what we saw online. I drank mine but my wife could not drink hers so ordered wine instead. Otherwise a great experience.
My wife and I went there for our anniversary and it was perfect. Great steak and service. We will be back again.
This place was way overpriced the waiter didnt even know uf you had bottled water the bread was horrible we sat at table one it ricked the whole time with food at forty dollers a pop you think they could afford to fix the table my husbands food had an odd odor not vegetarian friendly menu at all it was my birthday and the experience was not a good one money thrown away
The Red Fish, Lamb Steak, grilled Caesar Salad, and Cajun Flatbread were all excellent.
Best spot for fine dining in E’ville.
Also, good wine list for Red Zins.
Great food, service and atmosphere.
Making the reservations was a snap and my request to sit by the front window was fulfilled. We were greeted with cheerful wait staff and our wish to have our dining experience contoured to our liking was delightfully done. When I come back into town again in a few months, I look forward to enjoying the outdoor patio! Thank you Madeleine's!
Best restaurant in Evansville and we’ve been to quite a few of them.
Food was delicious and service was great. Atmosphere was perfect for an anniversary dinner. The table was even decorated with flower petals for us! It's a little pricey (for me) to eat there regularly, but it was worth the splurge. We'll be back for another special occasion for sure!
Excellent dining experience, from the hand-crafted pre-dinner cocktails all the way to the signature dessert. Service, food, ambiance were all outstanding.
Absolutely! It is pricey but definitely a unique experience, not like the chains we have here.
Great place for intimate, cozy meal with great food and service. Better staff training for wine selection really sets apart a nice place from a high end place. We will be back if quality, service and professionalism remain as it has. Nice job!
Everything thing was outstanding. Food was on point as well as the service.
