Madison's Grill - Union Bank Inn Ratings and Reviews
Madison Grill was one of my favourite 'go to' places while I was working downtown. Haven't been back often since my retirement. But invited a friend to join me for brunch this past weekend, and was very glad I did. The menu still featured my favourite smoked salmon eggs benedict - and they were as fine as I remember. The ingredients - both mine and my friends - were fresh. The presentation of the meals were lovely. The coffee was hot, plentiful and well brewed. The service was excellent. The restaurant was surprisingly unbusy for mid morning weekend brunch. (Perhaps, like me, others are preferring locales where the parking is free/more accessible.) The restaurant was consequently wonderful for conversation and the staff were in no hurry for us to leave. I will be back!
I went here on Christmas and had a terrible experience. The menu had no prices (which later turned out to be an unpleasant surprize!), the portions were tiny and my steak was very hard to chew and dry. The waiter did not explain the menu, did not announce the dishes, and simply threw the bill on our table at the end of the meal. On top of everything else, it was very cold in the washrooms. Not a pleasant night :-(
This is an exceptional find in Edmonton. Kevin, the restaurant manager has an ability to make his guests feel very welcome and he has great attention to detail. The menu changes regularly but the quality and beautiful presentation of the meals is a very high standard that does not change. I have been frequenting this restaurant since the late 1990's and the experience of quality does not dim.
The ambience is amazing here. A nice sized room with very comfortable seating. The service is outstanding. They even dropped us off at the theatre as a bonus. Food is delicious - it’s a great downtown location for a date. In our case dinner and the theatre.
We were a table of 5, first to arrive in the restaurant at lunch but served LAST. It took over an hour to get our food, and only when prompted to the manager to look in to it. We did not take long to decide on food, nor order complicated meals either. He was laissez faire about the wait, saying it was up next (exact same thing the waiter said 20 minutes earlier), and said they are busy, it's Christmas. Our food did arrive about 10 minutes later with a "thank you for your patience" but no apology for the wait, it was sitting under the warmer for a while and our food was dry. The manager did come over later as he finally sensed we were upset, and comped our three glasses of wine. At that point the damage was already done and we just wanted out of there. Will not return and would not recommend.
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.
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.
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.
We had to change our reservation last minute from breakfast to dinner. The manager and server were very accommodating and understanding, and make us feel comfortable. The space is nice and they have a decent wine list. Definitely worth checking out in Edmonton.
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!
My husband and I were here for dinner for our anniversary on Sunday. We both had the three course dinner with wine pairing. Each dish was a surprise and I absolutely loved everything! Service was outstanding as well! Would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone! We will most definitely be back again!
