Sitting outside near the waterfall and beautiful flowers made us feel like we were in a friend’s private garden. Our server Penny Jo was delightful and our drinks and lunch arrived quickly and were delicious. The Basil-seared chicken salad is something I’ll reorder, my husband’s farm burger had all of his favorites, pimento cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, Aioli. We will come again!

The atmosphere and food were fabulous-our favorite part was the friendly staff, most of which were interns from Scotland and England. We had so much fun talking with them.

If only Atlanta had a restaurant as nearly perfect as Madison's in Highlands. We have been many times since the current operation opened its doors adjacent to the Old Edwards Inn. If ever there was a restaurant that deserved even more than 5 stars, Madion's would be one. The service is impecable, yet quiet enough for a romantic evening. The food is always wonderfully presented.

Nick started off by offering us a complimentary glass of Champagne. Took our picture by the fireplace which we have been visiting since the lates 70’s. Room # 8 was our favorite.
Murphy was our waitress and she was superb- from start to finish. She made our anniversary special which I imagine is hard to do since she didn’t know us. Excellent personal skills but management deserves some credit since all employees were extremely professional and personal. We live locally and looking forward to many more wonderful experiences at Madison’s!! Thank y’all so much.
And we have told at least 15 people about our experience!

My three girlfriends come to Highlands for two nights in April each year and this was the first time we have dined at Madison's. My husband and I had been there for two previous occasions so I knew what I was doing when I made the recommendation to them. It was a lovely experience and we hope to return on a future trip to Highlands.

We were celebrating an anniversary and they had rose petals on our table which was very nice. However, our table was right by the kitchen and entryway so there were a lot of folks in and out. The rolls were not warm (my husband called them hockey pucks.) Soup was good with nice presentation. Trout was very fresh but sauce was very bland. Had read wonderful reviews but we were a little disappointed with our dinners. Probably will not be back.

This was our second time eating at Madison's while staying at the Old Edwards Inn and once again it was wonderful. We even had the same server, Pete, from a couple of years ago and he was great. The atmosphere was elegant but comfortable and the food was delicious. It is a little pricey but considering that you're getting a gourmet meal in an upscale hotel, it's not too bad. I highly recommend it for a special night out if you're in the Highlands area.

The receptionist follows a very mechanical and unfriendly seat assignment and record keeping process that appears to work for the restaurant, but is one of the worst experiences that I’ve had in any nicer restaurant.

My husband and I had dinner there to celebrate 20 years and it was absolutely delightful. We were greeted personally by name, there was a beautifully set table with with petite roses on it to acknowledge our special occasion. Our server was impeccable with knowledge of the menu, the specials the chef was preparing for that evening as well as the wines and was attentive to our every need. The meal was incredible, buttermilk crackers with pimento cheese and miniature biscuits to start off, dinner choices of short ribs and a rib-eye and dessert was a new creation of a light chocolate mousse with a citrusy sauce that melted in your mouth. They scripted Happy Anniversary on the dessert plate which made it more special! The evening ended with a rose given to me again to celebrate 20 years with a wonderful man. An experience never to be forgotten!!!
