Madeleine's has been a favorite of ours for many years. However, about 2 years ago, the quality of food began dropping. After a full year, my wife and I decided to give it another try, but as much as we want to like the restaurant--we like the ambiance and service--the food quality is just not at the level it should be. I had the parmesan encrusted rack of lamb. I ordered the rack medium rare. It was served medium at best. The "rack" consisted of 3 single chops. The "parmesan encrusted" coating was completely bland and flavorless. Side vegetables were flavorless as well. Madeleine's has priced itself as a premium restaurant. The experience is not at the value it should be.

Food and Service were great as usual. New neighbors joined us for dinner. They were looking for options to take out of town guests and had been disappointed in other options in town. They were very pleased with Madeline’s and said they were thrilled to find a good place to take out of town guests.

First time to Madeleine’s, we went for Valentine dinner. They had a special 4 course dinner. Food was great, best meal we had had out in years. Appetizers, salad, main course and desert were all excellent. We will be back.

Value equation is not there. I expected more and have prepared better steaks myself. For a restaurant of this type, I was surprised that they used promotional/branded glassware. I will go elsewhere the next time I’m in Evansville.

Excellent staff. Very friendly. Great Service. Perfect place to bring that special someone. Music levels and lighting levels were perfect. Food was excellent. We ordered the duck and the Rib-eye. Great flavors, cooked to proper temperature. Would definitely recommend! We plan on coming back again for sure.

Love the steaks! Sides and salads are unique and large enough to share. I always look forward to discovering what the special flavored butter of the day will be. The Italian lemon cake for dessert was divine. Our service was excellent and our experience most satisfying.

The chicken Parm dish was fantastic. It was well prepared and pleasantly displayed. It was a beautiful and delicious plate. The sides were perfectly complimentary and the chicken shined as the best I have had in my 65 years of a foody.

We were early for our reservation and were greeted with warmth, shown immediately to our table and never lacked for attention thereafter. Our server made several excellent suggestions and we were not sorry to have listened to her. We split a salad between two and could have included a third person; the entrée portions were not so large but were entirely adequate. Two of us had the 8 oz. filet which was seasoned well and perfectly cooked. The duck leg was delicious but difficult to eat on the bone. On our server's advice, we split a Madeleine's Foster which used peaches rather than bananas for the base. A terrific improvement on the original. Should concert attendance beckon us again to Evansville, we will look no further for a place to dine.

The food was excellent and the service was superb-especially Max the bartender. My portion was small but my wife’s was ok. The quality made up for quantity. I suspect there was a party upstairs that slowed service and may have influenced portion size. Nonetheless I highly recommend this restaurant for locals and visitors like us.

We love Madeline's. It's expensive, but oh so worth the price! Plan to spend at least 1.5 hours here. It's slow paced which I love because I don't feel rushed to finish and get out so someone else can have my table. I told them we were celebrating a birthday and when we arrived, our table had birthday confetti all over, a ceramic cupcake on the table with a happy birthday sign, and all of our water glasses said happy birthday on them. What a nice touch! Waiter was VERY attentive, but not overbearing. I am a very picky eater, but I can always find something here that I absolutely love, which is saying a lot since their menu changes all the time. Definitely worth the splurge!

This may have been a better restaurant at one time, but not now. The service was good and the environment really quite delightful. The best part of the meal was a beautifully prepared martini. The deconstructed Rangoon appetizer tasted like it was 99% cream cheese with the "crab and lobster" someplace other than on my plate. The entrée was a pork and cherries dish that was over-cooked and lacking in any real complexity. The wine list however was great and reasonably priced.

The Service was Excellent. The Wine selection was Good. The 16 oz Dry Aged Rib-eye was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. The Lobster Mac and cheese was to die for along with the Red potato Augratan.

But, the Key Lime Pie was so small I could hardly find it on the plate and for $11.00 I expected a Piece that could be shared with my wife, plus they put green lime zest all over it which was disgusting.

I do recommend Madeline's for everything they have expect for the desserts. We will return and enjoy the wonderful entree's that they have.
