Atmosphere was great. Service was really slow, there was only one waiter for the whole side of the restaurant. Food took a long time, and when it finally arrived nothing special. Great for atmosphere, bad for food & service.

Terrible service and the resturant was empty. No excuse for a long wait for food, drinks and no follow up. Food was average...very cute space.

The best part of the restaurant was the host! He was very friendly and helpful. Other than that we didn't have anything good to say. We made reservations to have Easter Sunday brunch. You'd think making a reservation would mean we'd have a decent table. But the only tables open were inside in the dark. Eventually we moved outside. Waited a looooong time for food to arrive. Drinks were wrong. Food was ok. I think it's a bit of a tourist trap of a restaurant due to it's location. Much better places out there for the price point.

We waited over 20 mins before we even got a drink. The only uncooked item we ordered came out after all of the cooked food. Positive note, the food was tasty. We asked for salt and had to ask two people before we got it. Server was nice but service was some of the worst I’ve had in a really long time and it was at a seemingly high end, nice restaurant. Definitely disappointing. We actually asked how long they’d been open bc it was as if it was week 1 but he said 5 years...yikes.

Food was underwhelming. Restaurant was empty. Located on the street, so it was very loud with cars and sirens. Bathroom stalls not the cleanest.

The food was just fair and the restaurant was empty when we attended it. We ordered the brussels sprout dish which he said was made fresh but you could tell it had been sitting in the refrigerator and the steak that we ordered got delivered to another table but they did accommodate us very nicely for the mess up in the serving of the food. So in that respect they were really amazing and treated us very well. We were disappointed in our evening there.

Our service was pretty bad - the waiter almost never checked on us, even with a half-empty restaurant. The pasta was alright, but nothing special. It felt like they didn't really want to be there.

Madera is always one of my favorite Brunch spots in Hollywood! The bottomless mimosas are fantastic and the food is great! (or is that because the mimosas are so plentiful??)

My wife and I had been looking to go to Madera, so for date night I surprised her. We were quite surprised that upon our arrival the place was relatively empty (although it was around 7 p.m., we thought that for a Friday night the crowd was a little lean). The menu options were limited but the food was pretty good. My wife had the vegan pasta and I had the oxtail shortbread. We would've hoped that the menu offer a few more substantial entrees.

2-hour bottomless Mimosas for $20 was a big draw for Sunday brunch. Lots of large tables of young adults. But, good for us old folks, too. Great waiter.

Nice outdoor patio. Very small portions on some the food. Tasted good, but nothing special. Nice place to have a date, but be prepared for a possibly higher than expected bill. Parking can be difficult with only street parking.

We waited 30 min to be seated and then another 30 min to even get any bread. I wasn’t looking for a 2.5 dining experience and the kitchen was also out of a lot of things by 7:30pm. No thanks.

We made a reservation through open table for 9:15 pm. When we showed up we were told they were closing at 10, which was confusing because that was 45 minutes away and we had made a reservation. They said we could eat there if we ordered by 9:30. We were seated and no one ever came to take our order, so we left.

We sat outside for dinner. The music was very loud so it was hard to hear others. The menu was different than what was listed on the site and the options were fewer. There didn’t seem to be any dish that sounded great but we both ended up getting pasta dishes. The ravioli was a really small portion but good. The squid ink pasta was a decent sized portion, but average. The outside setting is beautiful. However the food and service were not great.

If you go here you must have the green dolphin, it is the most refreshing drink I've had in a long time. We had the ceviche and looooove it so we had 2 orders. We also tried the oxtail flat bread....it was good but I'm not a big meat eater. Now on to the service our waiter was the spunky lil guy...(sad I can't remember) his name right now, but he was the best. Actually all the staff was great.
