Great place for brunch, one of the few places that took reservations for my large group. Was nice and cozy despite the rain. Definitely recommend the shashuka with soy chorizo!
Great ambiance and fabulous service. Music was quite loud with booming bass that seemed excessive given how crowded and noisy it already was, but we loved everything else about it to let that detract from experience or rating. We had an issue with a missing drink order from bar, but they handled it perfectly. Little touches like a birthday card and frequent birthday greetings from any employee who walked by made it extra special. Overall a super fun spot with a great vibe. Thanks, Madison!
The avocado toast and shakshuka are simply magical. They just need to offer more pita bread with the latter plate! We asked for more and our server gladly obliged. Was a little wet walking in the rain up and down the scenic hallway that connects the sidewalk to the hostess stand, but the seats were dry and warmed by heaters nearby. One of my favorite places to brunch in SD!
We had the reservation for 8:45 we ended up getting our table at 9:45...
Enjoyed the jazz combo! Food was great.
It was convenient and easy to book a table. We got there and were seated immediately. Great food and service.
Each time I come here, I want to love it so bad, but always walk away disappointed. I think it has more to do with service than the food. The service always falls short. We ordered a lavender latte and the barista who made our coffee came to our table after he made the coffee and said 'we ran out of lavender, if you don't like the coffee I'll make something else'. So basically he made a regular latte knowing we ordered it flavored but didn't ask us FIRST if we would like something else since they ran out of lavender. The waiter should've relayed this info upon us ordering. To eat, we ordered the G.O.A.T and added an extra egg and the kitchen didn't make the sandwich right. The food was good but this isn't the first time service fell short so I don't think we will be coming back. Also, I said on the reservation we were celebrating a birthday and the hostess and the server never acknowledged it.
Fantastic good and cocktails with fun/cool/romantic atmosphere. They paid attention to my allergy as well. The only downside was service was a little slow but they were very busy at the time. We have been twice now and it has already become one of our favorite date spots.
Drinks stated on the menu were not available and drinks ordered did not taste as expected. Drinks were specifically why some of us went.
Food and drinks are all good. Went on Jazz Tuesday. Good music but a bit loud for conversations.
Great food and even greater cocktails. Service was on point and great ambiance. Dinner service was a little loud but suitable for the vibe.
Fantastic place for a date night! Our server, Tony, was attentive, warm, and laid back. He made great recommendations. I got the skirt steak and watermelon tower appetizers and my husband got the papperdelle-- all amazing. I'm still salivating thinking about the chimichurri sauce with the steak. Great ambiance and vibe. They even clipped a flower to my cocktail. Loved it!
Everything was perfect. Thank you!!!
Always great food and service. So happy we have this in the neighborhood!
We went to hear some jazz on a Thursday night. We were amazed at the food. We will definitely go back and recommend this restaurant. Two small negatives, the music was a bit too loud for me to enjoy conversation and my salad came out after our meal. I ended up sending the salad back. Again, nothing big. Amazing food!!
The restaurant is beautiful. The drinks are amazing and very inventive. The food was not good. A little disappointing.
Great experience, food was amazing and Olivia was an amazing server
My favorite place! Cool build, great drinks, delicious food! Highly recommend
Madison has great ambiance and top notch customer service. Their cocktails are wonderful and it is fun to be able to try drinks not available anywhere else.
Started off great, was seated and attended quickly. Unexpectedly took a down turn when we requested ice water and were met with uncalled for attitude and due to this will not return. Sucked.
Tuesday night Jazz nights are so much fun! Love the cocktails and the service is great. The brie and skirt steak apps are my favorites!
Our server was excellent, despite operational challenges. They don't seem to be very organized in terms of bussers or water refills. After having to wait ages for someone to fill my glass, our server brought us a pitcher - a nice solution that kept us hydrated on a sunny and blustery Sunday. He had a lot of tables and was hustling the whole time.
The food is excellent and the cocktails are good - though not especially flavorful or exciting. The wine list is nice. Hopefully the operations issues were just a one-off. I have always enjoyed dining at this lovely and interesting place.
Awesome experience! I loved the design of the building, inside and out. Great/unique decoriating and ambience. From there our server was excellent and made it a fun experience (including a tarot card reading!). The food was also superb, I got the pork chop and it was very filling but not so much I didn't have room for the amazing churro bites. Will definitely be coming back here! And the other great part is they don't try to rush you out, you can take your time and really spend a whole evening here if you want!
it was great! thank you!
Food could have been improved. None of our dishes were very good. Overcooked and tough meats. Nice staff, fun cocktails, better for appetizers and not dinner.
Great place. We ended up with okay (not great) service. Food and ambiance was good. Very loud Saturday night.
Both food and service were great! Our table was available immediately upon arrival and our food arrived shortly after ordering.
The Madison was great and I enjoyed dining there for weekend brunch with my party of 4. We felt welcome and the food was excellent.
We enjoyed the dining experience
The food was the best we have ever tasted! Loved the experience
Will certainly be back
The jazz band was playing and it set the vibe for the entire place. Great ambiance, food, and drinks. Will probably return for a date night.
I celebrated my birthday with 15 of my closest friends and family, they were amazing, very friendly and very responsive. Tony was our waiter and he was awesome, always checking in to see if needed anything, always with a smile on his face, simply awesome, once we go back, because we are planning on returning for Brunch, we will definitely say hi to Tony.
Great music, awesome ambiance, amazing food and drinks, highly recommend it.
We had a little mishap (a plant fell on my friend) and our server was incredibly nice about it and more than made up for the incident on our bill.
pretty food that is a good portion size, nice for groups
The venue and craft cocktails are great however, service was very slow. Drink orders are even slower. Our dishes were sub par and could use some improvements. I would go again but maybe just for drinks.
Our waiter Steven was excellent! He was very attentive, and personable. We’ll be back.
The brunch menu is interesting and delicious! They have fun pairings that tackle sweet & savory.
The ambiance is awesome. It’s a bit louder but in my mind added to the experience.
The indoor outdoor experience at Madison was amazing. The interior design is one of a kind and the food and service were tremendous. I see now how its won so many awards for best brunch!
Came here for my Birthday with a large group, it did take a bit longer than expected to get seated but we were a large group and they were already accommodating last minute additions. Once seated everything was great, food was extremely fast our server was on it and got us out by the time we needed to be somewhere else. Food was amazing and the drinks are my favorite. All my friends loved it!!
Portions were a bit small , server was pressed for time and kinda disengaged .
