Madera - Rosewood Hotel Sand Hill Ratings and Reviews
The food and ambiance was what you would expect at a Michelin Star restaurant. The dishes were imaginative and tasty and the service was very good. My only complaint was that service was a bit slow, I appreciate not being rushed but it seemed like it took a very long time for our entrees to come out after our starters. It just felt like the pace of the meal was slower than just being leisurely. Overall our dinner for 6 people took well over 3 hours, with starters and dessert. We ordered about 2 cocktails each, but no wine.
Food was good, it was nice to have special treats on the birthday. Service wasn't up to par. It took the server a long time to take our order, he didn't check on us during the meal. It took the bus boy a long time to take my dish away to pack it to go. The worst is that no one ever answer the phone at the restaurant. I had to always call the hotel so that they could connect me to the restaurant
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal with terrific service for our recent anniversary dinner. We noted it our anniversary when making our Open Table reservation. The staff was very accommodating and attentive but not stifling. Our menu included a Happy Anniversary message and our waiter started us off with complimentary sparkling wine and we ended with a small slice of complimentary anniversary cake. My wife was very pleased with her wild salmon entree and I enjoyed the pork loin, both very well prepared and presented. A higher end restaurant but prices not excessive by Bay Area standards. Even the valet service at the hotel entry was very welcoming and efficient. Certainly would recommend.
We are frequent Madera customers. Last Sunday evening was a disappointment, not sure if chef is different or it was just an off night. Table was excellent on the deck, but although waiter was professional, he was not friendly and it seemed he was just mumbling off phrases he memorized. I had the Sunchoke Veloute, Kampachi and Duck. Nothing stood out as memorable and the soup was served too cool. My boyfriend said the Heirloom Tomato salad was also just okay. Not so sure we will go back often anymore.
From start to finish our dinner was outstanding. Wines were incredible and although you could spend a ton of money on some of the vintages, we had a Sancerre that was delicious and reasonable. Rachel the Somm is spot on, ask her as she really knows her wines.
We can't wait to go back, if I lived closer I would frequent this place as often as possible.
My first visit, will return. Shared two appetizers with my date, the first, grilled foie gras, had lots of flavors and nuances. The second, the angelloti, was a new take on a pasta dish, delectable. Then we shared the halibut, soft and tender white meat. Delicious. The pairings were Sangiovese and Malbec for the appetizers and a NZ daub blanc for the halibut. Perfect. Finished the dinner with a double expresso, aromatic and tasty.
I will return.
Flawless service for a special occasion, if like me you are stressed about things going wrong on a special occasion, look no more. Staff at Madera went above and beyond just because I mentioned it was our anniversary and requested a table by the window. Food is great and view is nice (if going before sunset), but for us what really made a difference was the service, prompt but not pushy, multiple courtesies and attention to detail.
Madera has a great setting and it's nice if you can take advantage of the outdoor eating area. It would be even better if they were able to get air to circulate on hot days so the outside was more doable. The food has always been good, but I don't find it outstanding. Our servers have always been friendly and professional. To be honest, it is just too expensive for future visits. This last lunch between 3 women-3 salads, 1 glass of wine, 1 Bellini, 2 desserts shared and 3 iced coffee drinks came to $180. That's just ridiculous. My salad though good, came on a plate that they filled half with the salad and the other half was literally empty-odd presentation esp. when it cost so much. W probably won't dine here again in the future as it just seems to get more expensive and the food doesn't wow me.
Madera has never disappointed us, always impressed us, every time we visit. From breakfasts to lunches, special dinners, Christmas, you name it. This is our "go-to" place when we want a dependable five star dining experience. We have been going here for years and it is always a great dining experience.....food, setting, service and a great staff. You are a dependable "best".
