It has been almost 10 years since I have dined at Madison's Grill. We were looking for a high end restaurant to celebrate my daughter's 19th birthday and wanted to try somewhere new. My wife and I always enjoyed dining here in the past, but I would describe our dinner this time round as less than average fare in a very nice setting. Unfortunately, the food has not kept pace with the ambience of this dining experience.

4-cocktails, 4-appetizers/salad, 4-entrees. No wine or desert = $310 with GST & Tip.

Our server did address our feedback with the kitchen and appologized stating, "we have the secondary chef working tonight as it is slow". It definately was a slow Sunday night reservation at 6:30 with only two other tables being served. All the more reason for better execution?

Even if the pricing reflected the "secondary" chef, I wouldn't be able to recommend Madison's Grill for high end dining. This is the first time I have given a restaurant a bad review.

The restaurant was recommended by a friend. It did NOT disappoint, in fact we loved it. From the atmosphere, wine menu, food and the service. I would go back again in a heart beat!

So disappointed with this restaurant we had the six cours meal with wine paring. For the wine selection that part was really good but food wise so disappointed not worth the money it costed us at all, the presentation of the food was aweful and the main dish consisted of two carrots two brussul sprouts and a tenderloin with no juice or sauce it was really dry. We also had breakfast the next morning at this place I had a benidict egg that tasted really weird and made me sick, the patatoes were like three days old and the fruits seemed old as well.

The food was very good, the service was excellent and the location was convenient to our downtown office. The meal prices were average for a nice, downtown restaurant. I would have liked to have more meal options in the lunch menu though.

Food was wonderful. Lamb was delicious, as was the salad with the delightful, but not overpowering, wasabi flavour. The shrimp cocktail was superb and the dense, rich brownie was the best I have ever had. Service was great; same too with the atmosphere and hospitality. A lovely mesl and evening.

We went to the Madison's Grill for my husband's birthday.
I had the rabbit and was quite happy with it, my husband chose the striploin and was impressed. His desert however, was rather disappointing. He had the Brownie a La Mode and reminded more of a frozen chocolate bar rather than a brownie. The texture of the Hot Bailey’s Ice Cream was just odd and tasted more like instant almond pudding. The seasonal pound cake I ordered was decent, no complaints there.
All in one, we had a nice evening, the cocktails were good and the wine fantastic . We had been to Madison's Grill twice before during the last few years and the food and service were outstanding. This time they just did not quite meet our expectations and we would rather try other fine dining places before returning. .
One last thing- maybe it was me, not paying attention to the machine when it was time for the bill, but it turns out that the tip was already added to the bill and I ended up tipping again.

Fish and chips totally inedible - fish covered in some disgusting batter, chips congealed hard as rock. Green salad consisted of a tray of sad wilted greens. Worst lunch I can remember in downtown Edmonton - which is saying something. At these prices, utterly unacceptable.

First time here; had Lunch; very average entrees, nothing special and certainly pricey for what we had ; Apple Streusel filling was tasty but the pastry very tough & dry; server took it off the bill which was a very nice gesture. Will try this restaurant one more time for dinner as perhaps this was just a bad day for the chef:)

I was unable to tell from the wine list if they had an unoaked Chardonnay so I asked. The waitress had no idea (no problem) so she said she would ask her manager. She came back and said they do not know. She recommended a Chardonnay to try so I did. Very oaky. I then picked another wine that I knew of. My point is if you are going to offer a wine list to the guest please take the time to educate your servers of the wine on the list.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time with friends. We all thought this restaurant was very good. Mains ordered were the Free Range Pork (2), the Lamb Shank and a Beef Filet. All very good. The vegetables that came with the meal were wonderfully prepared and I particularly like the scalloped potatoes that came with the pork. Service was excellent without being obtrusive. We were visiting from Calgary but I would love to come back sometime.

I've been coming to the Madison Grill for a few years now (5+) usually a few times per year. Never disappointed, some staff has changed over time, service is always excellent & food quality has never wavered a bit.

This visit I had the 6 course chef's tasting with a wine pairing, and it was exactly as expected - magnificent.

One comment - I believe that the chefs tasting is only available if the entire table is having it (not 100%, please confirm) best suited for smaller group.

Great food, excellent service, and beautiful fun atmosphere.

We celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday at Madison Grill. The food and service was beyond exceptional. The ambience and overall mood is perfect for an intimate dinner. We stayed at the Union Bank Inn for the night and also had brunch at the grill which was equally good. We will definitely come back!
