Madera - Rosewood Hotel Sand Hill Ratings and Reviews
They completely rushed our meal. I wasn’t even done eating my plate and the next one was coming, at one point the waiter pulled my half eaten plate away from me. This is after I told someone else I wasn’t done. Really bad service for a restaurant of this caliber. Good food not good service. When you spend this much money you want savor the food and finish your wine, guess they had something else in mind.
Absolutely loved this restaurant and experience. The dessert option called “The Olympics” was especially memorable. 6 bonbons from the past 6 Olympics with curated ingredients of each nation who hosted the games. It even came with a little guide book! So much fun. I can’t forget the scrumptious, buttery, scallops I had too!
The food was mostly terrific, as was the service. The only downfall was when I mentioned to the server that my beef tenderloin was not cooked to how I ordered it, there was no offer of addressing the issue. That said, even though it was cooked medium, it was still pretty tender, so I didn't want to make a scene. I just expected something more from a Michelin star restaurant.
Worst dining experience of my life. Service was slow and down right rude. At one point I overheard a waiter complaining about serving people! I guess they don’t think they are in the service business. Staff needs to be trained and probably the management too. Too bad such an ideal location can come up to par.
Everything was great including our waiter except for the host at the front booth. I arrived at 11:20 am (reservation at 11:30 am for 2 people) and they would not allow us to sit down even though I saw most of the tables were ready to be served. This is really disappointing and with a business partner, we have to stand at the door to wait.
First visit to this Rosewood - London Rosewood absolutely brilliant. I'd be amazed if this isn't the best hotel and restaurant for miles around. Very good service, all the staff friendly and helpful (sommelier Rachel outstanding in this respect) and the setting is stunning. Obviously food not quite up to level of London Rosewood (exec Chef Amandine there one of most famous in France, and Sommelier Michael one of best in London) but if you're not flying 5,000+ miles for dinner (as I am tonight!) this is a great choice!
Had an AMAZING dinner with My Love, for our 6month Anniversary. Everything was PERFECT!!! It was the “fairy tale dinner that she’d always dreamed of” (her words). I can’t thank the Madera enough for such a great evening. The food was excellent, the wine was fantastic, and our waiter Alex, was the best waiter I’ve ever had at any restaurant anywhere. My Love had the duck, which she LOVED, and even though it’s not on the dinner menu, my waiter Alex still got me the burger. It was great! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND everybody to visit this place, and if you do, ask for Alex Arani to be your waiter. You WON’T be sorry.
Outstanding ambiance and elegant dining. Service was mediocre, had to wait for wine service, and check, not attentive waiter. Food good to excellent but portions too small for price. Excellent dessert. Will give it another try, but a bit too pretentious for my taste. Noise level acceptable.
Madera at the Rosewood Hotel is a very nice classy restaurant with excellent service. The menu was preprinted with the occasion & there was a special menu for children with healthy food options. Parking is great with valet service. I would recommend it for celebrating a special occasion. A memorable experience.
Everything was exceptional except my salad and entre. I did not care for the beet salad- way too frisee heavy. I ordered the lamb shank, was turned off my the presentation- giant bone was not appealing as well as color of whatever the lamb shank was perched above- the lamb itself was very hard to maneuver and way too rare ( was never asked how I would like it served, I wrongly presumed it was going to be braised....)- taste was very "muttony" tasting. the cream puff type dessert was delicious. I have to say I have dined at Madera semi frequently for mostly business lunches and never had a meal that I could not eat and looked so distasteful. Our server was excellent.
I cannot speak about the food as I just book this place for my boss and his associates. However I can speak to their service administrative, and in that regards, they are the worst! If it were up to me, I would never book there again. You would think they would catch on to the fact that we regularly spend quite a lot of money there, not just in food, but reserving a room, and with each reservation comes a new challenge or rule I had not been informed of previously. In short, not accommodating at all. I very much dislike when companies make it hard to spend money at their location.
Our server Preston was OUTSTANDING. He was very friendly, personable, and extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. We felt very well-taken care of by him. He made an already outstanding dinner THAT much better.
Everything we ordered was excellent. We enjoyed the foie gras, duck, pork loin, scallops, and nearly every dessert on the dessert menu. The bread, amuse bouche, and mignardise were also lovely.
The ambiance in the dining room was very warm and cozy and parking was easy. My parents are already talking about returning.
Weekend lunch w/girlfriends. Food was delicious: Foie Gras Torchon, Cauliflower Soup, Bibb Salad, Foraged mushroom Sugo- I enjoyed each bite. Beautifully presented. Compliments to the Chef.
Deserts: Chocolate Pear, Mille-feuille & Season's Greetings Bonbons were Ah-mazing!
Im not a cinnamon person so Apple Tart Tatin was lost on me. Skip the Mont Blanc (unless you're crazy about chestnuts)
Very disappointing service. Had to ask for water 3 times & coffee refill twice. Although an accident, server spilled a full container of cream on me(clothes, shoes & handbag). Server offered towels/club soda for clean up. I anticipated at least an offer of comp. dessert but there was no consideration.
Food & coffee were delicious.
Our experience was both enjoyable and dissapointing. I do not have a problem with expensive taste but I do when the value does not meet expectations. The meal and portions almost a joke and way too salty. The chef has to get it together if he wants if he wants to have repeat customers
Beautiful night and beautiful hotel to enter into! The interior of the restaurant isn’t gigantic but also isn’t small neither. The positive part is that it was beautifully decorated with excellent staff working the whole night. Noise level was kind of loud but it was a busy night before New Years Eve. The food was top notch, beautifully plated and tastes that would make your tastebud feel like they were dreaming. Staff was excellent and attentive to make sure our night went well. If you want excellent service, look for Beto and try to book table 24 or 13.
I have been to Madera several times and it never disappoints. The customer service is top notch and the food is creative and delicious. It is also fresh and not over sauced or over prepared. The presentation of the food makes the experience super special too. A great place for a special lunch or to impress.
I had the kampachi and the tenderloin steak which were both delicious! The chocolate pear dessert was good, but not amazing. The amuse bouche was also delicious, but this is the only complimentary “extra”—unlike other Michelin star restaurants I’ve been to in Europe which often provide an amuse bouche and a palate cleanser, plus a complimentary dessert or petit fours etc.
The space is gorgeous with stunning views. Highly recommended and would definitely go again.
It was Christmas Day and they had a fixed price menu. Everybody in my party had some minor complaint. We left full because it was very rich but I would not want to have that dinner again nor pay for it. We had our wedding their & it was great & the food was great. I sorry I just didn’t like this at all.
